Contemporary Counsellor

about me

This means for me to truly look inside myself and find that quiet space, clear of clutter, bringing a sense of peace and strength to deal with whatever life brings.

Personal History

maxine-robbins-counsellerAlways having had a life long interest in how our minds work, I continued after receiving a degree in Psychology to study a broad spectrum of disciplines relating to  humanity and self-development.  Years of both Buddhist Meditation and Martial Art practices has grounded me as a person.

I would describe my therapeutic approach as Humanistic and integrate a number of contemporary approaches within my work.  I offer a contemporary counselling service that incorporates the essential elements of being client-centred with complimentary modern therapeutic practices that support personal self-development.  Current research in  Somatic Reprocessing, Generative Change Work, Mindfulness, Person-Centred, Ericksonian Psychotherapy & Transpersonal Psychotherapy are all part of my current ongoing therapy practice.

The process of focusing in, connecting to and opening ourselves up to more than this limited reality can be truly transformational and positively life changing.  I am fully committed to helping others on their path, through good times and bad towards more enriched & fulfilling lives.
