About

Hi, I am Maxi. I am a counsellor who specializes in relationship counselling and sex therapy. I support people in understanding themselves better, develop curiosity and self-compassion, I help my clients with evidence-based psychological therapies. I understand we are different and unique, so I would be tailoring my session to best suit you. I am experienced in a range of therapeutic approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Schema Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Sex Therapy and Psychosexual Therapy.
I only offer online sessions at the moment; therefore the counselling will be via zoom or another online platform. I see clients from all over the world (except U.S. and Canada) and can be flexible with time zones.
I am non-dismissive and non-discriminative. Through therapy I will help you unpack your situation, support you to find your strengths and goals, help you to cope with inner conflicts, and build the meaningful life you desired.
