I am a psychologist, psychotherapist, childhood and toxic parent recovery coach, therapeutic self-development mentor and personal consultant
I specialise in helping women to recover from the after-effects of a troubled or traumatic, abusive or neglectful childhood.
I help you to heal and re-parent your inner child, and make peace with the past – to stop it messing up your future!
I can help you if you’re a woman who is …
- Overwhelmed, worried, upset, stuck or confused about something – whether in your personal, home or working life
- Tired of wearing a mask – feeling like a fake and constantly trying to please other people, whilst neglecting your own feelings and needs
- Feeling unhappy – with the way you look, your poor state of health, your eating or drinking habits, your self-esteem and how you behave
- Struggling with your relationships – with your partner, friends, family, or with work/business colleagues. Maybe you’re having difficulty finding or keeping a loving relationship
- Worried that your past, perhaps your childhood abuse, trauma or emotional 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 understand, heal and recover from your Toxic Parent(s)
- Aware that your ‘inner child’ is struggling – and you want to heal her distress, change her negative thinking, and heal her emotional wounds. You are ready to ‘re-parent your inner child‘ and finally make peace with the past
Before you go any further, I should warn you that there’s a lot of information and choice on this website!
Please don’t let that overwhelm or confuse you. I’ve been doing this work for over 20 years (I’m older than I look!) and I’ve been busy creating a wide range of unique products and services – at different prices to give you a proper choice. You won’t find what I offer anywhere else.
In a nutshell, all my products have a similar overall aim – to help you to have a better, happier and calmer life – and there are two main ways to do this:-
1. SELF-HELP DIGITAL DOWNLOADS – Either the free information and guides from the Free Resources page, or my online courses and workshops. (10 online workshops £17 each, five online courses £27 each using the discount code TENOFF – see below)
2. WORK WITH ME – Either in person (in central Chichester, UK) or online internationally using Skype or Zoom. All sessions are focused and structured to suit your individual needs, and how deep you want to go. We’ll be working together for between 6 and 15 sessions/hours – usually 12. We can have extra sessions if you also want us to work on other aspects of your life such as your relationship, or your parenting style, or your role at work or in your own business.
My full hourly session fee is £100
If that seems expensive and too much to spend on yourself, then compare it to the cost of a holiday, designer shoes/clothes, take-away meals, alcohol, drugs, social nights out, or cosmetic, beauty and hair treatments – none of which can change you on the inside or improve your life or happiness in the longer term.
SO….take a deep breath and dive in to find out what type of therapeutic help appeals most to you.
If you would prefer to e-mail me instead you can do that here – firstname.lastname@example.org
then let’s talk about how we can work together to make this transformation happen for you ASAP!
Having recovered from childhood abuse and trauma myself, I now can be your childhood recovery coach and therapeutic self-development *mentor.
I offer you much more understanding, empathy and depth than coaching, and much more focus than counselling therapy or psychotherapy.
I work with the underlying causes of your difficulties – and not just the effects and consequences – to bring you deep and lasting change.
My approach is both holistic and *integrative – and I combine well-researched methods which have been shown to be the most effective in bringing real and lasting change. (*Humanistic, TA, CBT, DBT, MCBT, MBT, REBT, NLP, Gestalt, Positive Psychology, Attachment & Relational Theory and Neuroscience).
“Amazing lady! I can’t put into words how much she’s helped me, go to her and you’ll leave stronger, happier and far more capable. She can literally turn your mental health around!” (Kirsty P)
“ I had worked with a couple of therapists before finding Maxine but I wasn’t comfortable with the style of just talking about myself. It seemed too indulgent and I went into “performance” mode (which was part of the problem!). On the phone Maxine sounded professional, driven to find solutions and I was in! I knew I had found the person who would help me.Weekly regular sessions were practical, emotional, honest and challenging but I knew that I had to be as open as possible to benefit the most.Working with Maxine in a practical, pragmatic way has transformed (all of my) relationships and the key one, with myself…and that is all down to Maxine. She is an incredible coach and mentor.” (Sarah A)
“I contacted Maxine to help my teenage daughter who was struggling with low self esteem, and instinctively felt that I was responsible. She suggested that I did some personal work myself, to help create a healing relationship with my daughter. Over the course of 12 weeks Maxine helped me to come to terms with the negative internal beliefs and sub personalities affecting all my relationships and the inner child work was healing and liberating. Uncovering and dealing with the emotional wounds from childhood trauma has helped me become a calmer and less rigid mother.” (Jenna B)
“I just wanted to let you know that I met up with my mum yesterday – it’s the first time I’ve seen her around 18 months. My inner child is at peace! I wasn’t triggered once! We were there for 6 hrs and I felt nothing but peace within myself! It was incredible. Thank you for what you do.Very very kind regards.” (Max G)

With over 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, recover from a troubled childhood and toxic parents, learn how to re-parent their inner child and to make peace with their past.
This enables and empowers them to become better people, 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 – to et you started, so that you too can begin to enjoy peace of mind and a brighter future ahead.
I can help you find out ‘How To Tell If You Need To Sort Yourself Out’ – 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 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.
Learning New Skills
Emotional Intelligence & Balance
Control & Clarity
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 online self-help material.
