Devi Maybanks

Devi has been practising as a counsellor since 2012 and works with a diverse range of clients.  She has extensive experience of working with children, young people and adults, offering long and short term face-to-face counselling. Alongside her small private practice, she works in primary and secondary schools in the Buckingham/Milton Keynes area with students and staff experiencing a wide range of emotional difficulties.

She can offer a warm and confidential safe space for you to discuss and work through whatever is causing you difficulties at this time in your life. Devi strongly believes in collaborative therapy work and building a strong, trusting therapeutic relationship that is safe and mutually respectful.

As an integrative practitioner, Devi is trained to utilise a variety of therapeutic techniques that can be tailored for each client, including psychotherapeutic, CBT and creative/sand tray therapies. Working within the therapeutic model(s) most suited to you as an individual will enable you to express and explore difficult feelings and issues which, in time, will help you recognise unhelpful patterns and find alternative, healthier ways of being.

Devi has worked with a wide range of issues, including: anxiety, depression, self-harm, panic attacks, anger, relationship difficulties, family issues, identity issues, bereavement, trauma, eating problems, stress, self-esteem, sexuality/sexual identity, attachment difficulties and addiction.

Devi recently completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling Children and Young People with the University of Northampton and is currently training to practice as an Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist.

She is married with two children and lives in the Buckingham/Milton Keynes area. She has a horse and a pony and loves hacking out through the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside with friends.  She also enjoys walking her dog, hula hooping, Pilates and socialising with family and friends.
