About me and my therapy practice
Hello. My name is Maxwell Addo.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and British Psychological Society (MBPsS).
My role as a therapist is to work alongside you to help find ways to understand and address the issues you may be facing. My approach is to build a safe, trusting and confidential environment that challenges and supports you but also encourages self-awareness, resilience and personal growth.
My therapeutic approach is integrative which means I can draw upon different skills and techniques (Humanistic, Psychodynamic, Existential, Cognitive Behavioural) that may best support you and your personal goals.
I have particular experience in supporting clients from corporate backgrounds and the creative industries. Familiar concerns have included issues with identity, true/false selves, managing relationships, power dynamics - some of which can manifest in anxiety, depression, insomnia and other psychological issues.
I work with both individuals and couples and have many years experience in working with clients from wide ranging and diverse backgrounds and communities.
