As a highly experienced psychologist, psychotherapist, self-development/life coach and personal mentor for women,

I help you to understand and manage your emotions, boundaries and behaviours.

I help you to FEEL better – so that you can BE, DO and HAVE better!


I can help you if you …

  •  Are going through a transition in either your personal or working life, and you want to know and understand yourself better, and make the changes necessary for your future happiness
  • Realise that your past experiences and conditioning might be the underlying cause of your current difficulties – but you don’t know how to stop these from messing things up for you
  • Want to stop feeling compelled to keep showing a false self/mask to other people 
  • Need sensitive guidance and clear practical steps to developing a better relationship with yourself and others – or perhaps to also improve your professional or business performance and success

As your therapeutic self-development mentor I offer you much more depth than coaching, and much more focus than counselling or psychotherapy.

My therapeutic 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).


We need to expose and understand the  origins and causes of our personal challenges and difficulties, before we can make meaningful long-lasting changes.

Simply applying a short-term behavioural ‘sticking plaster’ only results in new unwanted problematic situations or behaviours arising from the same original unhealed source.


Are you ready to… 

  • Find out what makes you tick and why you behave as you do?
  • Stop the past from interfering with your future?
  • Have more balance, stability and control in your life?
  • Feel more authentic, calm, happy and peaceful?
  • Create and sustain necessary boundaries?
  • Become the best person, partner, parent or professional you can be – in spite of your own upbringing?
  • Have more harmonious, loving and respectful relationships?
  • Be more creative, effective and successful in your relationships, work or business? 

Imagine how much better you’ll feel, and how different your life will be when you make the changes you want.

There’s no need to wait any longer! 


Let’s talk about how we can work together to make this happen for you.

Maxine Harley Testimonial
‘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!’
(Ann Manchester UK) 
‘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”

With over 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist 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 highly effective methods.

 * 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.

You too can learn how to *S.E.L.E.C.T.Your Life (c) – which will not only bring you peace of mind, it will also enable and empower you to be a better parent, partner, and professional… and an all round happier and calmer person.
