About Maxine

As a trained psychotherapist and business coach with management experience in digital media, sales and education, I am committed to pragmatic and accelerated outcomes. With a belief in the human side of business, I will challenge you to think, act and speak in a way that inspires others to succeed.

Maxine Altman

Maxine coaches senior level executives and talented high flyers using intuition and tenacity to effect personal growth. A qualified NLP trainer, she regards self awareness as the key to professional success, and helps her clients to model excellence and challenge any obstacles to achieving fulfilment.

With a successful sales management career prior to becoming a coach, a background in music and an MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy, Maxine’s work expresses the spirit of self-fulfilment. Using focused approaches to identify underlying patterns, her clients learn to see themselves and others more clearly, become dynamic and consistently effective leaders and create a culture of motivation without prejudice.

Maxine believes that transformation is possible when we create a connection between the head and heart. With the ‘beginner’s mind’ of a wise fellow traveller, her coaching creates a dynamic thinking space where potential becomes practical reality. Working with organisations including Yahoo, Mindshare, DG/Mediamind and NOW Pensions, Maxine also teaches at the City Literary College and supervises trainee therapists.

What Clients Say

Working in a fast paced environment, Maxine has helped me to manage stressful situations, rationalise the factors underlying conflict with difficult colleagues and focus on my career goals. She has a knack of simplifying what seems complicated and is a joy to talk to.

Marketing and Communications Manager

Maxine’s attention, warmth and insights are transforming. As well as being a highly professional coach, I believe that on a personal level my success really mattered to her. As a result of coaching I feel so much more confident in my choices and ability.

HR Director

Maxine coaches with a thoroughly educated, worldly and gentle counsel. The journey is a deep inflection of ancestral influence and personal awareness. I leave each week determined, motivated and realized; Maxine has shown me an enlightened path, and that journey begins and ends with me.
