Testimonials

Here are just a few of the many positive testimonials I have received from happy clients – maybe you will be writing the next one. 🙂

“These past 12-weeks with Maxine have been eye-opening. I’ve been trying to figure myself out by reading lots of personal development books, taking endless courses yet each session with Maxine led me to going deeper into who I am than any book or other course has. Being aware of what is going on in different situations is half the battle and I felt that after each session I was healing just by understanding my ingrained patterns.. I am able to recognise parts of myself that are not serving me and stopping them in their tracks and start creating a more successful self. It hasn’t been an easy journey but I felt supported throughout with Maxine and was able to trust her guidance straight away. It’s been truly life-changing. You’ll come away knowing more about yourself and have more than enough tools to be able to help yourself to communicate better with you and with others in order to create healthy relationships. Thanks for everything Maxine! (Robyn)

“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)

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)

” I decided to work with Maxine because I not only had business time-management issues, but also problems in my relationship, and with my parents – which were draining my energy and affecting my work. I was working 7 days a week! I had a remarkable time and I’m delighted to say that after only four Skype calls I not only feel much more clear and in control of my life, but I’ve nearly doubled my monthly income by implementing Maxine’s suggestions for the simple restructuring of my business. I’ve gone from over-worked and underpaid to earning more and having weekends! I now have even greater plans ahead which I’ll be getting Maxine’s help and support with.” (Dee)

“About a year ago it became clear to me that my unresolved childhood trauma was really holding me back and causing so much undue stress and suffering in my life. I began to recognize patterns of self-sabotage, perfectionism, people-pleasing, depletion, overwhelm, and exhaustion. It was as if these patterns were stuck on repeat. Eventually, I realized that I needed professional help to overcome them. The first therapist I interviewed explained to me that I had “severe complex childhood trauma” and that I would need to be in therapy for the rest of my life. Nothing about what she said felt right, so I kept searching. This is when I found Maxine.

During our initial free call Maxine explained that she would need about 12-15 sessions with me before I’d be on my way. After what the last therapist told me, I was a bit doubtful that we’d make this kind of headway and in such a short time period. I was wrong. 15 sessions is all it took. Maxine did a beautiful job of helping me revisit my childhood, identify all the wounds, and provided me with a clear and straightforward approach to healing them.

In just 2 short months, I can literally say that I am a different person. I’m finally at peace with my past. I feel that I have all the knowledge and tools that I need to move forward and live a happy and healthy life. I am so unbelievably grateful for Maxine, her unique and effective approach, and her calm and gentle presence that allows for so much healing to occur. My life isn’t the same. I’m not the same. In fact, I’ve never felt more and peace, or more capable of handling life in general.

I cannot recommend Maxine enough! I’d give anything if the entire world was able to benefit from her guidance. The peace and healing I have experienced and continue to experience are invaluable. I’ll never forget what I’ve learned. It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Maxine!”  (Katherine) 

“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)

“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.” (Mary)

“Working with Maxine has been a wonderful experience: fun, eye-opening and transformative. She balances empathy, understanding and frankness in a way that creates a safe and encouraging space to explore. Her sessions are structured and meaningful, and each one left me with a greater understanding of myself along with the practical tools to challenge and change my destructive thinking and behaviours, both personally and professionally.” (Linda, Scotland) 
“I strongly recommend Maxine’s work! Having previously tried a form of talking therapy for too long and merely scratching the surface of the things I wanted to work on in my life, I found Maxine. She really helped me (in just 12 sessions), to find within myself the tools I need to help myself and to gain clarity. She pin pointed everything that was in my way and enabled me to give myself exactly what I need to start living an anxious-free life. I have found her method to be the best investment I have made and I would urge anyone to do the same… I am delighted, and feel very satisfied. Thank you, Maxine!”

“The biggest change since working with Maxine has been understanding how to use my personal boundaries to maintain healthy relationships. However more importantly, I now believe, I am kinder and more honest with myself. It has been hard work emotionally but so very worth it” (Lucy, London UK)
“I was just thinking about you and how you helped me turn my life around. You really were an angel in my moment of darkness. I wanted to share with you that I’ve officially started my own business. I am now a florist which is what I really wanted to do, but worried too much about money and security. It wasn’t until I had faced my shadows that I could even begin to have the confidence to do something like this. Sending you thanks straight from my inner child that needed your light” xx Amy
“I had already tried several ways to get help for my binge eating, bad body image, self-doubt and self-criticism before I found you. Thank you for working with me to help me connect with and heal the relationship with my inner child. I found our sessions supportive, useful, and a very direct way to get to the core issue of things that have been holding me back. Thank you for tailoring the sessions to meet my exact needs and your expertise and warm manner made it enjoyable too! “(Alice F)
