This week saw not one, but two episodes of Lifekeys Talks released on a variety of platforms. Hosted by CEO and clinical psychologist Gudmundur Ebezener, the show focuses on interviews with individuals working in high profile and high-stress industries. First among these have been legendary Norwegian footballers Stig Inge Bjørnebye and Claus Lundekvam.
Both have had stellar careers at the highest levels of the game which included numerous appearances for the Norwegian national team.
Stig Inge Bjørnebye's career took him to the highest levels of English football with a total of eight years spent at Liverpool FC. The man himself speaks humbly and openly about his time at Anfield and the mental health challenges that such a high-pressured environment can generate.
Claus Lundekvam's path took him to Southampton FC, including spells as both club and national captain. After an enviable career, the steadfast defender experienced a series of mental health setbacks in retirement. Claus speaks candidly about his previous battles with addiction, recovery, and relapse as well as the positive work he does in the mental health field today.
