As a psychotherapist I specialise in recovery from childhood trauma – also called Adverse Childhood Experiences or A.C.E. – and Toxic Parents. These are at the root of many people’s present day difficulties.
My work in this area is covered on my other website www.maxineharley.com
The affects of a troubled childhood shows itself in adulthood in many ways – in all of our relationships, the type of parent we are to our children, and even our work and business success.
These echoes from the past show up as anxiety disorders, depression, mood swings, emotional over-reacting, irrational fears and phobias, low self-esteem, shame and confidence issues, indecisiveness, procrastination, problems with relationships and intimacy, problems with your eating and weight, issues around money – gambling and over or under-spending, substance addiction and dependence, pornography and sex, difficulties with coping as a parent, problems with working relationships and authority figures, how much you can trust other people, issues around standing out and being seen and heard, negative self-talk and low expectations, difficulty expressing yourself and understanding the emotions of other people too .
I work with the causes of your difficulties, and help you to heal your emotional wounds and to make peace with your past – which frees you up to live a brighter future… as a better person, parent, partner and professional!
I’ll use all that I’ve learnt and experienced in the last 20 years of my own long journey to give you the ‘short cut’ – and help you to make the changes you want to make to your current circumstances and to your life.
