Charlie Maxwell

Integrative Psychotherapist
(UKCP reg., MBACP reg.)

 

Individuals

Hello, I’m Charlie – an experienced, qualified and registered psychotherapist with some remaining week-day availability in central London and online.

Life can feel hard, complicated – or worse. Therapy develops our awareness, enabling us to make new choices and change our lives for the better. I provide a confidential space for us to work through whatever has brought you here. I can support you figuring out what that’s about – and navigating how and where you want to go next in your life.

Just get in touch via email to arrange a free introductory call and we can take it from there: with an initial session to meet, typically followed by weekly sessions for as long as you need.

Experience

I have worked for two mental health services over the last five years, supporting a wide range of clients through their challenges to reshape their lives. Alongside my private practice, I am also a member of the assessment team at an inner-city mental health service.

Qualifications

I hold an MA and Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling, following a seven-year programme at the Minster Centre – the pioneers of Integrative Therapy training in the UK.

Registration

I am a registered member of both of the UK’s national accrediting bodies: the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). I also hold an enhanced DBS clearance. This means I work responsibly in accordance with professionally recognised standards. I am in clinical supervision and undertake regular training. Both ensure my clients benefit from my continuous professional development.

Career

Previously, I worked for almost twenty years in security roles within government and the corporate sector, both in the UK and in conflict-zones abroad. I recognise the impact that high-pressure jobs, exposure to trauma and returning home can have upon our mental health and relationships. I have a particular interest in supporting those with similar experience: whether in the aid / development, media, medical, military or security sectors.

Perspective

I know first-hand (from both chairs) what it takes to recognise when things don’t feel right, reach out for support and put in the work to change. And I’m confident that therapy can enable all of us to develop and enjoy more manageable, satisfying lives as a result. For more about how I work, please see my website below.
