Markus Lien

I have a master’s degree in Clinical Health Psychology from Eötvös Loránd University. I completed my internship at Vangseter, Norway’s leading addiction treatment facility, and I worked there since 2018 as a therapist.

I provide therapy and assessments in English and Nordic languages to expats and international students. In addition to my position here, I work at Hejmdal Privathospital, specializing in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of adolescents and adults. I have previously worked at Norway’s leading rehabilitation clinic for addiction disorders and at a psychiatric ward in Roskilde, Sct. Hans. I am a member of the Danish Psychotherapy Association and applied for my authorization in February 2023.

With a diverse skill set, I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD and Motivational Interviewing. I have experience in various therapeutic approaches for both group and individual therapy, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Schema Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. I also provide psychoeducation for ADHD, Autism, and Sleep Disorders, and have a course in Autogenic Training, enabling me to teach progressive-muscle relaxation techniques and mindfulness.

Moreover, I am skilled in assessing and diagnosing intelligence through WAIS/WISC, and neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD, ADD, and ASD, holding a certification in Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS-2).

My approach to therapy is evidence-based and rooted in a client-centred perspective. I have worked with patients experiencing a wide range of mental health issues, including stress and burnout, anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, affective disorders, and addiction disorders. Several clients seen here are often high-functioning, without meeting specific diagnostic criteria. For these individuals, I offer talk-therapy for any imaginable topic.

What happens in Therapy

During therapy, we collaborate to identify your goals and concerns, developing strategies to address them. Each treatment is tailored to your unique needs and preferences, creating a meaningful way forward. My goal is to establish a safe and supportive environment where you feel comfortable exploring your thoughts and emotions.

Offering unconditional positive regard, empathy, and acceptance, we will work together in the therapeutic alliance. You can expect attentive listening and deep understanding as we discuss challenges and goals. I may ask pointed and helpful questions to help gain meaningful insight and develop healthy motivation.

I believe all human beings possess the inherent capacity for self-actualization. With the right support and guidance, individuals can overcome obstacles, experience healthy growth, and realize their full potential. While therapy can be intimidating at first, many of my clients report a sense of relief and hope after starting treatment and are glad they took the first step.

Online therapy is also an effective option for those who prefer the convenience and flexibility of virtual sessions.
