What’s on your mind?

I can help you – if you’re a woman who’s either …

  • Worried, anxious, overwhelmed or upset about something – whether it’s to do with yourself, your work, family or friends
  • Tired of trying to please everyone else – and hiding what you really feel and need
  • Feeling unhappy with yourself, the way you look and behave, or feeling that you aren’t ‘good enough’ somehow
  • Struggling with any of your relationships and your part in them
  • Recognising that you’re repeating old patterns and getting the same bad results – particularly if you’ve experienced childhood abuse or neglect – and you’re fed up with attracting the wrong people and situations into your life
  • Concerned about what conditioning and behaviours from your parents you might now be passing on to your children 
  • Realising that you might need to ‘sort yourself out’ first – in the ways you think, feel and behave – before your life at home and at work can become more balanced, calmer and happier

These are all signs that your ‘Inner Child’ is distressed, struggling to cope and needs some help to feel stronger, more courageous, authentic and empowered – whether at home, at work or in any of your relationships. 

I work with the deeper causes of your problems, and not just the effects, consequences or symptoms.

This then brings you deep and long-lasting change.

 It’s not always a troubled childhood that’s the cause of your inner child’s distress. A childhood with well-meaning parents may still not have prepared you for the harsh realities of life; and you may not have developed the skills and resilience needed to deal effectively with the various challenges that your adult relationships bring.  

“Amazing lady! I can’t put into words how much she’s helped me, go to her and you’ll leave stronger, happier and far more capable. She can literally turn your mental health around!!” (Kirsty P )


If you want to get down to the root cause of your problems, heal any emotional wounds, make peace with your past, regain control of your personal and professional life, change your thinking and behaviour, and get things into balance… then let’s make this happen for you!

If you have any questions please e-mail me at maxine@psychotherapy-sussex.co.uk

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

 With 20 years of experience as a psychotherapist (Masters Degree) 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 very effective methods. 

I can help you to sort out your life – or those parts that haven’t been working well for you. You can find out just how much ‘sorting out’ you personally have to do by downloading my free questionnaire from www.maxineharley.com

I am particularly interested in the effects of Adverse Childhood Experiences and childhood trauma upon our adult lives, and how these can be the underlying cause of many of our difficulties.

We all have an inner child who has been impacted by our earlier experiences. This part of our psyche can then get in our way – until we learn how to make peace with the past and become better enabled and empowered to have a happier calmer future.

If this strikes a chord with you then I’ve created some free resources for you – please see here to get your free e-books and video.

 * 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.

Self Awareness - Education – Learning New Skills - Emotional Intelligence & Balance - Control & Clarity – Transformation

All of these options , allow you to reach this place of transformation.
