‘Whole-Brain and Holistic’ Psychotherapy with      

Maxine Harley - ‘Your Mind Healer’(c) 

      (MSc Integrative Psychotherapy) 

 What’s keeping you awake at night?

  • Are you over-thinking and trying hard to find the answers to what’s wrong in your life?

 Maybe you don’t even know what’s wrong – life just feels awful and desperate… like a living nightmare that you can’t escape from.

  • Are you feeling more and more isolated from who you really are, and what you want or need?
  • Are you worried about what ‘issues’ and problems of your own you might pass on to your children? 
  • Are you ‘going through the motions’ at work to keep up your professional status and reputation – but it’s all becoming too much, and you feel like a fraud?
  • Are you feeling emotionally overwhelmed and burnt-out, and really struggling to hold things together – maybe to the point of crying when no-one can see you?
  • Are you hiding what you’re really feeling when you’re at home – so as not to upset anyone?
  • Are you becoming desperate and trying to numb your emotional pain with drinking, gambling or other mood-altering behaviours?
  • Are you finding it hard to keep your ‘false mask(s)’ in place?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these, you’re suffering from a case of ‘Living a Lie’ …  and it’s exhausting you!

The good news is… I CAN HELP YOU

If you want to gain control of your life then contact me NOW and we can arrange to get started – and to quickly ease your emotional pain and help you to get your life into balance.

What would that feel like for you?

How different would your life be?

Why wait any longer?

We will have time to explore your issues, worries and difficulties and find the possible solutions for you. I will visit you at your home or workplace (which must be free of intrusions, distractions and have full privacy). My professional consultancy fee for this two-hour session is £250 + travelling time at £50 an hour + transport costs (train/taxi)

2. I have also created three therapy ‘packages’ for you to choose from – whichever best suits your needs at the time.

IN EACH OF THESE PACKAGES I WILL WORK WITH YOU EITHER IN A FOUR-HOUR INTENSIVE PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSION - OR IN A ONE-DAY WORKSHOP FOR 6-8 PEOPLE saving you months of ’50-minutes-a-week’ therapy - which is what’s usually on offer elsewhere.

In these three half-day intensive therapy sessions – or one-day workshops – we’ll work to get the control and peace of mind back into your life.

No more emotional overwhelm… no more feeling lost or isolated… no more time or energy wasted in feeling bad!

My three packages each contain different material and are called:






dreamstime_xs_25167533We all need some clarity in our lives – and having a caring and objective guide is a great help in this.

We all need to understand the reasons for our difficulties, and to have the right help to see a clearer way ahead.

Making sense of what is happening to us gives our brain a chance to find the solutions we need. We all want to feel happier, calmer and to get on well with people – but sometimes we get in our own way and create extra problems for ourselves.

Our 4-hour session/one day workshop will consist of:

WHO ARE YOU – AND WHY? What makes you tick and what has shaped who you are today? 

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOURSELF? Your self-concept, self-esteem and self-worth; and how do other people see and treat you… and why?

WHAT’S YOUR LIFE LIKE? Your human needs, emotional-attachments, and evaluating your relationships.

WHAT LIES AHEAD? Creating your preferred future by learning from the past – and putting that to good use.



In childhood we learn to wear a false ‘madreamstime_xs_23308802sk’ (maybe more than one) in order to get by and to fit in with the people around us, and to try and keep them happy.

We have to hide our ‘real’ self and become what other people want and expect us to be instead.

In time we forget that we have a mask on… and after a while we can’t even imagine what life could be like without it.

Living a life that isn’t of your choosing chips away at your happiness, confidence, optimism and sense of purpose.

Living a life on someone else’s terms will cost you dearly in your own psychological, emotional and physical well-being. You’ll become detached from your own inner world and your own needs; you won’t know who you really are or what you really want or need.

Our 4-hour session/ one-day workshop will consist of:

WHY THE MASK? – Re-connecting with your ‘inner child’ who had to start wearing a mask in order to be accepted. Understanding why you needed to create a false mask, and how this has affected your life. Looking at how you’ve been living your life so far. 

WHAT’S KEEPING THE MASK IN PLACE – The relationships you have – and how ‘conditional’ they are upon you wearing the mask. How you see and feel about yourself – with and without the mask. Who you really are underneath!

TAKING OFF THE MASK –Taking the steps necessary to sensitively remove the mask and become happy with the ‘real you’ who’s been hiding behind it for too long. 

LIVING WITHOUT THE MASK – Making the right choices and decisions for your future happiness and success; which fit with who you really are and where you want and need to be; and learning how to communicate clearly, assertively and effectively.



head-shineOur mind can easily become overwhelmed with everything that we are holding onto – from the past and present, as well as what we are anticipating for the future.

Life can sometimes seem to spin out of our control – leaving us feeling very stressed and drained of energy.

Our brains are complex and highly adaptable – we can actually ‘re-wire’ them with our new thoughts and ways of perceiving what happens to us. This is called ‘neuro-genesis’ and ‘neuro-plasticity’.

What fantastic news! You can change and improve the way your brain works – and when your brain works better then your life improves for the better too!

 Our 4-hour session/one day workshop will consist of:

OPEN UP YOUR MIND - Finding out about your brain and how it affects your life and relationships.

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND? – Finding out what’s been weighing on your mind – and how to lighten this load.

MIND OVER MATTER - Learning how to use your mind to create the life you want. Making the most of the power of your whole-brain to change your awareness, thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Body work, breathing and visualisations to change your brain and mind. Mindful observation. How to switch your brain and mind into ‘sleep mode’ when you need to.

MAKE UP YOUR MIND – Creating a new future for yourself and setting you up to attract what you really want in life. Having the confidence to ‘seize the reins’ and set off in the right direction ahead!


In these three therapy packages I will also use my own assessment tools, diagrams, handouts and personally created visualisations – we’ll be using your ‘whole-brain’… and mine! :-)

We’ll include short breaks – to give you time to assimilate and process our work.

We will also be moving around a little and being creative – I won’t just be sitting and talking with you for hours! 

The brain works best when it’s fully engaged… both the right and left sides of your brain; as well as the primitive, emotional and cognitive areas of your brain too.

Not forgetting your conscious mind and your all-important sub-conscious mind (which is running, and perhaps ruining, your life about 90% of the time!)

 Each of these three specially designed  4-hour intensive therapy sessions/one-day workshops will cost only: 

1. A personal one-to-one 4-hour session is only £500 – plus my travelling time (at £50 per hour) and transport (train/taxi) costs.

2. A one-day workshop format for 6-8 people is £150 each…and as a special thank-you for investing in yourself…. YOU    CAN ATTEND ALL THREE WORKSHOPS FOR ONLY £300 instead of £450…that’s a HUGE SAVING of £150 or 33%!!         It’s a buy two get one free offer :-)

Payment can be made in advance by Paypal.  (I’ll give you the payment reference after our initial e-mail/’phone or Skype call – and when we’ve had a chat and made sure which package is best for you.)

My therapy packages are all great value and well worth the investment in your own life, your relationships and/or your business career.

I will give you the benefit of my 20 years of experience and save you the inconvenience of months of meandering weekly counselling, therapy or coaching.

So, enough is enough!

It’s time to get the professional help you need – all packaged up into these focused and intensive therapy sessions and workshops. 

What will your life be like if you do nothing to change it?

Can you afford NOT to sort things out for yourself and your family?

How much more would it have cost to have months, or years of therapy instead? (which may not bring you the answers, learning or change you desire anyway!)


Your privacy and confidentiality is guaranteed and I will visit you at your home or office – which you must ensure will be free of distractions and interruptions during our session.
