Max Boehling (PhD, MSc, BSc, CPsychol) is a licensed clinical psychologist, peer reviewed ACT trainer, “Chartered” status at the British Psychological Society and provided with “specialist” status by the Danish equivalent (Dansk Psykolog Forening).
I have several years of experience conducting therapy (e.g. anxiety, stress, depression, life crisis and personality disorders), couples therapy, teaching, supervision and work-shop facilitation for professionals. I believe the nature of psychopathology and suffering stems from maladaptive reactions towards normal inner processes. As such, we all share the ability to get stuck as well as to heal.
Apart from working in clinical settings I have tought at MBA level, helped top executives and management teams achieve common goals. In organisations I also help HR and leaders with the prevention of stress related absense.
My goal is to help you heal; lead a meaningful life where “dysfunctional” processes have less impact on the choices you make. Each session is fully dedicated to what you come with and together we explore how you can introduce real changes in you life.
I work with adults, couples, teens, children and families.
I participate in research, work shops and expert fora. Member of the British Psychological Society (Chartered Psychologist), Association for Contextual Behavioral Society (ACBS) and the Danish Psychological society.
