Trond meets many patients who are confused about life, especially youngsters, who are confused about not being happy enough, perfect enough. Why ? the Hunter-Gatherer genes is at play ! Trond grew up by Haraldstøtta so close to the coast in Haugesund that love of the ocean came automatically. His playground was only interrupted by tourist buses and some archaeologists telling them not to dig in the Viking burial mounds.
Presently he is working as an organizational psychologist, managing his own company for past 5 years. Through work as a speaker, leader coach and psychologist Trond has worked with thousands of people since the start of his career in 2003.

In my experience this change of perspective totally saves people from making there lives a misery looking for something that doesn’t exist. The myth of stable and long-lasting happiness has stolen the life quality from too many people. It’s ;me we revealed the secret of a good life: it’s to settle with what is. This insight will save you millions. In some cases it can also save lives.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
