Recommendations of the “The Emotional Compass”
In an exemplarily clear and easy-to-read language without therapeutic clichés, Ilse Sand takes readers through a cleansing bath of emotional mental hygiene.
The book is very warmly recommended.
Bent Falk, psychotherapist MPF, M.Th.
The book is written as simple, straightforward advice in which complicated material is made easy to understand. The language is reader-friendly and accommodates our differences with great understanding.

Ilse Sand guides you with simple advice and concrete exercises through the labyrinth of emotions, so you can learn to let go of old, unwelcome patterns and start working through these emotions – and, more to the point, achieve a greater acceptance and understanding for your feelings and the feelings of others.

About The Emotional Compass: How to Think Better about Your Feelings
Emotions are not always what they seem to be. For example, if you see a woman who is crying you will probably think that she is sad. But she may also be scared or angry. The fact is that it is typical for women to conceal several different feelings while wearing a hat of ”sadness.”
And if you see a man who expresses anger you cannot be entirely sure that that is what he is in fact feeling, because it is typical for men to express anger, also when they are in reality scared, sad, depressed or experiencing a crisis. Sometimes we are not even sure ourselves what it is we are primarily feeling. The more you become aware of your exact feelings, the easier it is to take action.
This book is written for the sensitive person who would like to gain more knowledge about him or herself, also on an emotional level. It is equally written for psychotherapists, psychologists and other practitioners who help people with their emotional problems.
For many years I have listened to many peoples story, both as a pastor and later as a psychotherapist. I have often followed their joys and hardships in life at close range over a longer period of time.
It has often struck me how many of the problems derive from a lack of general knowledge about feelings. Some people are stuck in unhealthy patterns because they are trying to change something that can’t be altered while others weep over circumstances that could, in fact, be altered. There are people that find themselves caught in unnecessary conflicts due to inappropriate mental habits which can be rectified if they have the necessary knowledge to do so.
I have seen how people are capable finding their way once they have gained the necessary knowledge. With their increased knowledge of how the psychology of emotions work, they are able to find the excess energy they need to alter the things in their life that can be changed, and to let go of wanting to control the things they have no control over.
My intention with this book is to convey psychological connections in a language that is easily understandable and which refers back to real experiences. Once you know what you actually feel and why, finding your way in life will become much easier.
