About Me

Maxine O'Brien

Sex and Relationship Therapy, Counsellor & Supervisor
MBACP (Accred)

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, using transactional analysis (TA) I hold current DBS and I am fully insured.I am committed to continuous professional development (CPD) along with monthly clinical supervision.

Being an Accredited  member of British Association of counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I am bound by BACP ethical framework and subject to their professional conduct procedure. I am also a member of College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT)

I have worked with a wide variety of people from all walks of life, including military personnel & families, issues around caring for family members and student counsellors. For many years I have worked supporting victims of rape, and understand some of the feelings and emotions this can present. I work within the NHS to support staff with work related issues. I have experience facilitating therapy groups and workshops.

How we can work together

I work with Individuals, Couples and groups of all Genders and Sexual Orientations
Individual Therapy

I offer one to one therapy in a safe, confidential and non judgemental space.

Relationship Therapy

Working together to explore difficulties in relationships, including Couples, Open relationships and Polyamory.

Walk & Talk Therapy

Walk and talk therapy takes place outdoors. In these sessions we will walk at a pace that suits us both, and talk in a more relaxed setting. We do not have to walk the whole 50 minutes.

Walking outside might itself confront issues that you would like to address such as a fear of open spaces or a fear of feeling judged for your appearance. 

Those of you sitting in an office or in front of your screens all day may welcome a change in scenery, so walk and talk therapy might be an option you would like to consider.
