Devi Maybanks


I am an Integrative Therapist offering counselling therapy for adults and young people (13+). I have been working as a therapeutic practitioner for over ten years, both in private practice and in secondary schools as a school counsellor working with students and staff. 


Speaking aloud and exploring your thoughts and emotions in relation to your current challenges, within the context of your own life narrative, can help you understand your difficulties from a different perspective, helping you cope better with everyday life. I can offer you a confidential therapeutic space to help you articulate and work through your issues, explore unhelpful patterns that may be contributing to your difficulties and impacting on your relationships, and help you focus on making positive changes so that you can move forwards and get on with living your life. 


Counselling therapy is a unique source of support for whole range of psychological issues, including anxiety, anger, and depression. Therapy is also incredibly helpful for things like exploring and understanding relationship dynamics which might be causing issues, work stress, difficult life events and navigating any unhealthy thinking habits and behaviours that might affect your daily functioning and current relationships. 


I strongly believe that establishing a strong, supportive and collaborative therapeutic relationship is the key to successful therapeutic outcomes.  However, it is useful to know what kind of therapy you might be offered to help you reach your goals. As an Integrative therapist my counselling work integrates a variety of psychodynamic, cognitive and behavioural modalities. Each approach works on exploring and gaining insight into your unique behaviours, beliefs and emotions which may be underpinning, and contributing to, your current life challenges.  


Integrative counselling is a combined approach to therapy which flexibly blends components of different therapies. Integrative therapists work with the idea that there is not one sole therapeutic approach that fits every client in every situation. Instead, each person needs to be considered holistically in terms of their physical, mental and emotional well-being. Counselling interventions are tailored accordingly to individual needs and personal circumstances by using specific techniques and key concepts drawn from various approaches.
