Who are we?

In Copenhagen Vineyard, we are the team that offers counseling sessions. The team consists of people of different ages, genders, and educational backgrounds. What we share in common is that we believe conversation with others can make a difference, and we would like to listen, ask, advise, and pray with you in your situation. If you would like to speak to someone who can set aside time to with you to listen, then this is the place. For example, maybe you are facing a difficult decision in your life, like going through a break-up, doubting God, dealing with low self-esteem, or facing another type of conflict or crisis. These counseling sessions are not therapy, but we are happy to refer you to a professional if you like.

Practicalities

You will be offered 1-3 counseling sessions with someone from the team, and each session will last about an hour. You and your counselor will arrange the specific location and time.

All counselors are subjected to professional confidentiality.

If you would like to be assigned a counselor or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Bolette Skamling via email: raadgivning@vineyard.dk

Counseling team

Camilla

I am the leader of the counseling team and I have been part of Vineyard for 8 years. I am married and have a small son. On a daily basis I work as a psychologist and with various creative projects. I offer both individual and couple conversations.

Armando

I have been involved with the Vineyard movement since 2005 while still living in Gent, Belgium. Our church was adopted by the Vineyards in 2007 with the name Vineyard Ganda, and I served as interim pastor in the period from Fall 2009 to Spring 2012 when I moved to Copenhagen, and of course, joined the local Vineyard Church. In 2016 I married Anja. For many years I have been mentoring younger men, and talking with both women and men on issues of restoration and healing (inner). It seems people find it easy to talk with me. I love working with clay, particularly throwing pots, and I like good food, travels and the only sport I enjoy and practice is swimming.
I offer counseling in Spanish, English, French and Dutch.

Solveig

Nobody should walk around alone with their thoughts! So if you have run into problems, difficult decisions or something else, I would like to meet and chat with you. I work as a psychologist and in my spare time I enjoy dancing Lindy hop.

Julie

I’m 26 years old, and I’d like to talk to you who for example struggle with low self worth or challenges of being young. More than this, I also have experience with couple counseling and therefore I offer both couple and individual conversations. I’ve been a part of vineyard for 4 years and I think it is important to talk about the life challenges we all have – with each other and with God. Moreover, I study psychology.
