My name is Anna Brix Thomsen, and I am a Radical Heart Coach.
For many years, I’ve not known how to name what I do. Partly because it is intuitive and organic in nature, and partly because no description has fit exactly to the way I work.
I realized that the work I do, is shamanic in nature. A shaman (or a witch, priestess or völve) is a role that existed in ancient societies, with the same legitimacy as a carpenter, priest or teacher. In today’s society, we have completely eradicated this role from our societies, and have forgotten the importance of shamanic work.
In ancient times shamans had a direct connection with the realms that are beyond this physical reality, and were especially powerful in areas of seeing and healing darkness within.
This is what I work with on an intuitive level. I work with the heart of societies, of social groups and of individuals.
I have a natural direct seeing (clairvoyant) ability, which allows me to access deeper existential information, and I have a background in education and sociology.
As a shamanic coach I work in a space of deep compassion, empathy and ‘out-of-the-box’ reflections. I draw upon my ‘direct seeing’ where I am able to tap into deeper aspects of your being and relationships with the people around you.
I call it like I see it, and I don’t sugarcoat things. My support is however always born out of the deepest love and support for my clients, and I am honored to be a part of your journey, for a moment or for a longer period of time. That is why my shop is called ‘Radical Heart Coaching’.
I am no stranger to deep emotional pain, childhood trauma, shame or inner darkness. I hold space in a gentle, yet firm and directive way, for you to move the points inside yourself that needs to be moved, for you to live the potential you know you are capable of, deep inside.
I have three specific areas of expertise that I work with:
You can read a few reviews by some of my precious coaching clients here:
“Anna has a sharpness and a directness, which is coupled with an enormous warm heart, intuition and empathy. Her calm presence and clear language make it safe to explore vulnerable themes and to discover the sometimes unpleasant truth in a very clarifying, solution-oriented and resource-oriented way. My session with Anna has given me new perspectives on my situation right now and a deeper understanding of complex and paradoxical themes in my life. At the same time, it has given me concrete tools and methods to deal with the patterns that play out again and again and prevent me from living the life I want to live.” – Elin
“This is no understatement. Working with Anna has changed my life. It is now more than a month since I had the session, and its ripples are still working through me, transforming my life. It seems so natural to her, and I am amazed by what she could see, and the connections she made. I felt extremely seen. It was totally spot on. Some things I was kind of aware of (ready), but the way she put it, and the messages she had for me, made such a difference. The magic of it is that afterwards, my body, my brain and my surroundings started to work together with the new insights. Little by little the themes from the session unfolded by itself in my life, as if she had opened a gateway for these things to be healed and taken to the next level with no conscious effort. I felt very, very safe and open during the session. Anna’s love and compassion towards her people shine through, and nothing at all is shameful or weird. I have been in touch with many therapies, many gifted people, even through education myself, but I have never met somebody as clairvoyant and wise as Anna. She is something special.” – Rebecca
“Within writing this review it took me a day or two to collect my thoughts about my experience with Anna. How I could explain to another how genuine she is. How intuitive her perception can be. How much experience she has within the field of education and early childhood development. Her empathic abilities, problem-solving skills, her patience and trustworthiness.
These are attributes that Anna stands within and as, they are admirable, loyal traits that one would look for in any person of support.
Though Anna holds within herself all of the above benevolent qualities, it is not what has drawn me to her again and again for support. It has been her rawness, her ability to fail and embrace it. Her capacity to talk openly about the really hard shit, without judgement. To expose the darkness that resides within all of us, but we are too scared to talk about. Too afraid to break through that caution tape, with the ‘Do Not Enter’ phrase repeated and discover what has been buried, hidden deep within us, restricted from our view, because in reality, that is where the keys to freedom are.
I personally have called upon Anna on multiple occasions to help untangle me when I could not do it myself. When I needed REAL support. Someone to assist me within widening my view when it had become tunnel vision. I have shared with her my struggles as a mother, which if you are one you know, most of the time things are a little less shiny and pretty, and a little more messy and stained from the fire of motherhood. I have revealed to her my anger and fears because she was able to provide a space where I could be completely me, so that we could
walk hand in hand through the darkness of this uncharted territory.
Yes, Anna is a wonderful person with all of the admirable traits one would seek in a friend, a colleague, a counselor, a teacher. But her most valuable contribution is herself as the living example. Her “no more shame” in motherhood, her playfulness, her honesty and her humbleness within embracing all of humanity as herself.” – Camille
