I am an Associate Professor in Psychology at the University of Stavanger. I wear many hats—an author, educator, psychotherapist, and a passionate mental health advocate. Fondly, some call me the "Silentist." A colleague gave me this nickname because I wrote my PhD thesis about silence and emotions. Through the lenses of silence and poetry, I've delved into life's tensions and uncertainties. How can these elements mold us into more attentive, appreciative, and creative beings? How can they catalyze transformative dialogues?
Those who have trusted in me and my work:
"Great communication with the course leader (Lehmann) who is very inspiring. Lectures with lots of involvement, mixed with theoretical presentations. Good implementation of research methods. Good discussions. Olga Lehmann is a star when it comes to being helpful and patient, and she gives great guidance."

"Thank you for a great workshop. We received very good feedback about it. I think often about your theory. When I am in the mountains, in the woods or when I just feel inner peace. I would love to include these topics from your theories when I teach 😊"
