Deeper Connection with myself
"A big thank you to Maxine for the coaching I have had over the last 6 weeks. Maxine has helped me release some deep emotional issues. I feel great and more powerful and I have cleared some emotions that I was not even aware were holding me back. I feel calmer now and more at peace with myself and now for the first time in my life, I have a deeper connection with myself. I know love will come at the right time and I am patient. Heartfelt thanks to you Maxine for helping me reach this place God Bless" xx
Balanced and positive outlook
"My husband and I were attempting our fifth cycle of fertility treatment and I felt very anxious and really wanted it to work this time. I knew I had to get rid of my feelings of anxiety to give me a positive outlook, I really wanted to balance my life too as I felt that work was taking over my life.
At first, I didn't think tapping would be what I needed but Maxine made me feel safe and positive when I felt a negative moment approaching. Maxine allowed me to find the answers to my own problems by asking the right questions and really listened to me when I just wanted to talk. There were things that I didn't know existed and it surprised me but it provided me with a way to look positively to the future.
The eureka moment came when I realised my values were all wrong, once I had recognised this, I was on my way to a balanced and positive outlook, coupled with tapping I felt that I could tackle the world. I can understand what I need now and my husband and I went on to have a successful IVF cycle and if it wasn't for Maxine and her techniques, I don't think it would have worked and I can't thank her enough. I absolutely recommend Maxine and I certainly tell anyone going through the same issues....I truly had emotional freedom and I feel wonderful."
From a young age, I had a feeling that something wasn’t quite right with how I felt and that there was something wrong with me. As I got older these thoughts and feelings became stronger and more intense developing into an anxiety disorder in my twenties, sometimes experiencing panic attacks. The pressure of veterinary studies exacerbated these problems. Following graduation, I struggled with being a new graduate due to self-doubt and stress. I began to experience chronic stress and worry and depression. I dabbled in CBT and counseling but didn’t find much benefit. I had reached a point where the negative feeling and whirling mind had made work unbearable and thought about quitting the profession.
A friend of mine put me in touch with Maxine. We arranged a session and the rest is history! She gave me the tools to interrupt the patterns of thinking that lead to a spiral of stress and worry. Over time I began to get distance and space from my stress and anxiety and allowed me to once again deal with the pressures of being a vet and enjoy my work again! The Skype sessions and the flexible nature of the session fit perfectly into my life of being a busy ambulatory vet.
"As a para-dressage athlete, I wanted to improve my competition performance. EFT was something I had not previously considered until a friend suggested Maxine may be able to help me achieve better results. I was sceptical to Skype with Maxine but willing to give it a shot, at the very least it couldn’t do any harm!
In just a few short sessions Maxine has transformed the way I think, train and prepare for competitions. My neuromuscular degenerative disease affects all parts of my body and prevents me from leading a normal life but Maxine has given me the confidence and the tools to continue battling with my body and adapt and overcome the challenges that I now face.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Maxine to anyone who is struggling with their performance in the saddle.
Since I started having Skype sessions with Maxine my scores are now consistent and I have smashed my original sporting targets. My results have been recognised by Team GBR and in Dec 2016 I was selected onto the Para World Class Podium Potential Programme ~ thanks Maxine!"

I really needed help with my mental approach to sport as I suffered hugely with competition nerves including my lack of confidence in the warm up. My performance was hugely affected due to my lack of emotional control and rock bottom confidence. The more the competitions meant to me the more I suffered with the nerves so my performances were not reflective of my ability or my horses. In my day to day life anxiety controlled a lot of my life and I found it really debilitating. I had come so far but felt I needed help to get my career back on track. Over the past five years due to life becoming difficult I wasn’t competing as much as I wanted to and these life blows caused huge anxiety.
Working with Maxine has honestly changed my life and most importantly my mindset. I feel I can fully trust and confide in Maxine without fear of the information being repeated. Maxine has an amazing way of making you self assess and work towards an understanding of your thoughts, fears and emotions. During my time with Maxine which is around 6 months. I have competed at 2 major championships, an international and I have gained personal bests. In fact, I achieved a personal best after just one session.
My relationships with those around me have improved and my home team is the best it has ever been. I have also improved my career and gained a better job to help fund my dressage career. The EFT techniques have been pivotal in regaining my focus and helping to get myself in the zone for competing. The EFT has also developed my relationship with my horse Laddie and we have built our trust as I feel I have a better understanding of my heart and gut. I have had comments and compliments from people who have noticed a change in my approach. Angela Weiss World Class Para Dressage coach, “Emma has found a missing link between mind and body.”
Working on my core values has been a real ‘light bulb’ moment as it has interlinked the things that are important to me in order to keep me confident in all aspects of my life. Maxine has helped me to develop effective strategies to cope with testing situations in order for me to react in a way to reach a resolve or understanding. The EFT has helped to control my neurological pain in my arms which has caused me to really suffer in the past. The biggest difference in my life is that I am enjoying my life so much more and I feel excited for my future and my capabilities limitless. I owe a lot to Maxine.

Our first session together was a revelation. Maxine was wonderful, she made me feel totally safe and without judgement. She is also extremely perceptive and highly sensitive which allows her to understand and automatically tune into what’s really going on with you. She really listened to me and supported me through what I can only describe as a metamorphosis.
With her help and support, I started up my own theatre school and was asked to work in a prestigious school teaching Drama. I started to enjoy life as a Mother and my health greatly improved. For the first time in my life, I felt as though I could achieve, be independent, strong, healthy and happy. For that, I shall always be grateful. Mostly, Maxine taught me that I have the power to change and that anything can be achieved and healed with the right help. I would strongly recommend Maxine as a practitioner, – indeed I had seen several counsellors and therapists over the years, none of whom made any lasting real change to my way of thinking and being. Maxine however, is a game-changer and her methods gave me the tools I shall always carry if I need to work on any issue in my life. That’s empowerment!

Performing under Pressure
“I was lucky enough to be coached by Maxine when in a high pressured senior management role. I enjoyed our sessions so much and found them to be so beneficial that I subsequently paid to take part in some of her private training courses.
Maxine combines professionalism and great skill, with a warm and encouraging nature, which creates a safe space for growth and change to happen.
I would happily recommend anyone to trust and work with Maxine, confident that it would be to their benefit."
A More Relaxed Person
I have known Maxine for many years and she has always been totally professional and dedicated to the task of improving people's personal and professional lives.
I went through a very difficult period in my life and Maxine's training and knowledge helped me come out the other side a better and more relaxed person.
Her calm approach and natural good humour, coupled with her continual research and thirst for improvement, marks her out as a great person to reach out to."
A Very Special Human Being
"Every so often a seemingly random meeting can prove to be one of the most important meetings of your life. Ultimately one that can help save your life.
Following one of these 'chance' meetings over 30 years ago, Maxine and I formed a strong friendship that has served us well through the trials and tribulations of life, and during that time we have shared a few tears but luckily much more laughter.
However, it was 3 years ago when I was diagnosed with inoperable, incurable cancer that Maxine's professional skills were put to the test.
With love, compassion, and superb professional skills Maxine's sessions helped me find the strength I needed to get me through the most challenging time of my life, She has helped me become mentally fit, happy, and truly free, her insights into the human mind are truly astounding and have made a huge impact on my map of the world.
I feel blessed to call her a friend, yet she is so much more than that. She is a unique and very special human being that contributed massively to saving my life....."
For Sports and Relationships
"Thank you Maxine.
Your coaching gave me valuable techniques to manage my nerves and helped me perform my very best at national and international hockey matches.
Your techniques have also helped me to articulate my deep and most honest motivations with regard to relationships.
This helped me move on from an unhappy relationship and find one that made me happy."

Smoking, Food & Body Issues
"Over the years I’ve seen a number of therapists about body image and food issues resulting from sexual abuse as a child.
Through those therapists, I learned why I behaved and thought the way I did as a result of those experiences, but none helped me break the negative patterns of behaviour I’d established.
Through working with Maxine I am now free of deep-seated feelings of inadequacy and my fear of loss of control. I’d been afraid these would be with me whole my life!
Maxine has also helped me successfully stop smoking.
I never thought I’d be one of those people who said it was easy. But I am!
The brilliant thing about my experience with Maxine is that I now have the tools to cope with the ebb and flow of life, so instead of feeling panicky about what the future may hold, I feel positive and excited and peaceful."
Belinda Smith, London, UK"
"Hope all is well with you. I just thought I would email you an update as I hadn't been in touch since July.
I am very pleased that I no longer take anti-depressants - after 10 years of taking them, and I am doing really well and strong. I have not been in contact regarding a follow-up session as I have not felt it necessary.
I am doing everything that I want to be able to do and find I no longer consider if any particular activity will affect my energy levels or not.
Thank you for all the help you gave me. Very best wishes."
Maxine as Trainer & Coach
"Maxine will forever stand as my blessing from above. I will never forget what she taught me that I could do, how sincerely, compassionately, professionally, and empathetically she did it, and how meeting and working with her has let me get to where I am today.
Wherever I go tomorrow and the day after I will still carry with me that heartfelt gratitude.
Thank you, Maxine, from the core of my being, and may your every day be filled with rainbows fireworks, bliss, and wonders!"
