I can help you to feel better if you’re a woman who’s either …

  • Overwhelmed, worried, upset, stuck or confused about something – whether at work or in your personal life. Let’s get to the bottom of it!
  • Tired of wearing a mask – constantly trying to please other people, whilst neglecting your own feelings and needs
  • Feeling unhappy with yourself – the way you look, your eating habits, how you behave, and feeling deep down that somehow you aren’t ‘good enough’
  • Struggling with your relationships – with your partner, friends, family or at work. Maybe you’re having difficulty finding or keeping a relationship and you feel lonely and sad about that
  • Worried that your past, perhaps your childhood abuse or neglect, is making you repeat old patterns and get the same bad results – attracting the wrong people and situations into your life
  • Concerned about what conditioning and behaviours you’ve picked up from your parents, that you’re now passing on to your own child(ren)
  • Fed up with still being ‘tripped up’ by your old issues with your mother or father – and you want to get to the bottom of it all, and heal and recover from your TOXIC PARENT(S) 
  • Finally realising that you need to ‘sort yourself out’ first – in the ways you think, feel and behave – before your home and work life can become more balanced, happier and calmer. Self awareness is the first step!


These are all signs of a distressed ‘Inner Child’ who’s struggling and really needs some help, to feel stronger, more courageous, authentic and empowered – whether at home, at work or in any of your relationships. 

I work with the underlying causes of your difficulties and not just the effects and consequences – and this brings you deep and lasting change.

Maxine Harley
MSc Psychotherapy

With 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist (Masters Degree) working with a very wide range of people and problems I’ve condensed what I’ve learnt over the years into my own new and very effective methods to improve psychological, emotional and physical well-being. 

I specialise in helping women to heal and transcend their emotional wounds, re-parent their inner child and make peace with their past.

This enables and empowers them to become better parents, partners and professionals… and all round happier calmer people.

I am particularly interested in the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences and childhood trauma – and how these can be the deep-seated reasons for the problems in our adult lives. If this resonates with you then I’ve created some free e-books, blogs, articles and videos on the FREE RESOURCES page of this website – which will help you to take that important step towards healing your emotional wounds and making peace with your past – so that you can enjoy peace of mind and a brighter future.

I can help you to sort out your life – or those parts that haven’t been working well for you. You can find out just how much ‘sorting out’ you personally have to do by downloading my free questionnaire (see top right in the header bar to get your free copy).

You too can learn how to *S.E.L.E.C.T.Your Life (c) 

* S.E.L.E.C.T. Your Life is my process of helping you get to where you want to be and to have the life you want and deserve – the life of your own making and not just the one that’s been handed down to you.

Self Awareness – Education – Learning New Skills – Emotional Intelligence & Balance – Control & Clarity – Transformation.

Change is always possible when you follow the right steps… let me guide you to take those steps.

  • If you are suffering with suicidal thoughts, serious self-harm, a personality disorder, or chronic mental health problems, then the emotional containment of one-to-one psychotherapy will be better suited to your needs than these self-help E-courses. 

I am guided by the professional standards and ethics of the AICTP, UKCP, BACP & NCS
