Therapy Approaches

Deep Brain Reorienting (DBR)

Deep Brain Reorienting is a cutting-edge neuro-scientifically based trauma therapy developed by psychiatrist Frank Corrigan. 

DBR effectively promotes deep and often profound healing from the shock, painful emotions and symptoms consequent from trauma and attachment wounding.  

Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR therapy supports the healing of symptoms and emotional distress resulting from disturbing life experiences. 

EMDR therapy evidences that once the blocks to healing are removed, our brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward health.  When we have endured difficult life events, the system can become blocked by the impact of the event, the emotional wound festers resulting in intense emotional, psychological and even physical suffering which we then often manage by other strategies to cope which may in themselves become problematic, such as addictions. 

EMDR can get to the root of these issues allowing you to live more fully.

Integrative Psychotherapy

Having trained in a number of therapies, together with a lifelong interest in holistic approaches to health and wellbeing, my approach draws from East and West…. Cutting edge neuro-scientifically informed trauma therapies….. creative and expressive approaches… mindfulness & compassion focused therapy…. energy therapies….. nature, narrative and the many lessons I have learned from my clients and my own healing journey…

At the heart of integrative working is supporting your integration. This means working with ‘ALL’ of you – attending to thoughts, emotions, feelings, behaviours, somatically, spiritually, physically, your lifestyle and meaning making! Our mind, body and soul are connected and we are interconnected with our environment. The aim is to create more harmony while supporting you to be the best version of who you truly are!


Maxine has helped me to overcome insomnia and work related performance issues. I now have confidence and belief in myself and my relationships have also significantly improved. I never thought that this could be possible and could not be more grateful to Maxine for her expertise and skill.

As a result of my work with Maxine I have resolved long standing issues relating to trauma, attachment and now have a sense of belonging and connection with my 'Self' and others and no longer feel alone. I feel as if I am for the first time, truly living in my own body and am living my life fully with a sense of purpose and meaning. I’m grateful that I found her when I did and I highly recommend her!

I felt completely comfortable opening up to Maxine about issues that I have never spoken about before. I have felt really safe - I have overcome anxiety and flashbacks and am now able to sleep through the night. I have really enjoyed my work with Maxine, it has been collaborative and empowering.
