Are you stuck in a pattern you need to change?

Do you want to know how to move forward in this stage of your life?

Do you need to find some motivation?

Would you like to feel like you can be true to yourself wherever you are and whoever you’re with?

If you don’t change anything right now, how will you feel in 1 year?

How about in 5 years? What will be the same (or maybe worse) if you aren’t making changes right now?

If you picked up the phone today and called me what might be different for you 6 months from now?

How will your life have changed for the better because you have finally taken a stand on your own behalf and done something that you know you really need to do.


Living is mostly a balance between intensity and ordinary – but ordinary doesn’t have to mean unfulfilled or unhappy, and intense doesn’t have to be scary.  Problems, difficulties and all of your emotions are natural and normal parts of life.  Feeling overwhelming emotions (e.g., miserable, angry, anxious, hopeless or ashamed) is a common experience, but you don’t have to stay trapped in your feelings.


I’ll help you find the patterns in your experiences and how those patterns influence you. Seeing patterns brings clarity to choices and a chance to change.

You’ll get a better understanding of how your mind, body and emotions come together (like a perfect storm sometimes!) and make you you. You’ll feel better as you understand your self more.

We’ll work together to plan your next steps. I’ll help you with emotional and mental models, skills and tools and support you through it all.


Call 0456 033 200 now to find out more. You’ll speak directly to me (Dr Aimee Maxwell) so you can start on the path to feeling better straight away.

I see all sorts of people, adults and children, with all sorts of issues. In our first conversation, I’ll do my best to understand where you’re at and see if I can help. If we like each other and you want to book in, great. If I don’t think I’m a good match for you, I’ll do my best to refer you on to someone I think can help you out.

Either way you get assistance and that’s the goal at this stage of your journey.


That said, I do have three special interest groups.

Educational leaders
I’ve spent the past decade investigating what helps and what hurts wellbeing in busy leaders’ lives. There’s significant (and often negative) interactions between emotional demands at work and personal health and wellbeing and I help individual leaders who are experiencing workplace difficulties like bullying, or ongoing work overload, or chronic stress to find solutions and strategies that really make a difference. I also provide professional development that helps groups understand and deal with emotions in the workplace at all organisational levels.


Older adults (60+)
I do my best to help older adults improve their wellbeing and quality of life. Together we can improve feelings of coping, day-to-day functioning, sense of control, and self-efficacy. You’ll learn thought-catching, understanding and refocusing so as to best manage your unique situation. We’ll look back at your prior strengths with acceptance and compassion and see how they can help you adapt to the challenges of aging. And old trauma can be worked through, understood and dealt with so you’re not carrying a weight or secret alone anymore.

Human longevity is a gift. We have a large population of people aged over 65 and we are creating the future of aged care now.  I present informational talks about good mental health and ageing to retirement villages, community groups and organisations.


Parenting, children and developmental issues
I watched a heartfelt movie one day when I was 13 and home from school (Son-Rise) and that same year we studied The October Child. I was intrigued by Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental issues and wanted to understand more about brains, behaviour and emotions. Fast forward a few decades and I here I am. I’ve spent 30 years assisting familes in all manner of ways and learning what works best. Now, I help parents and children who need special supports to do great things, and I give presentations about child mental health, emotions and emotional flexibility.
