Private support for private clients.


Maxwell Parker Mediation & Counselling provides clients with private and confidential counselling services designed to support each person’s unique and often complex circumstances.


Our goal is to provide practical, private and  flexible  support to help clients navigate a wide range of situations or concerns - either as a brief intervention or longer-term partnership.


Principal Counsellor, Matthew Maxwell began in the specialised field of conflict management and resolution. Matthew’s work has  expanded beyond conflict management and is grounded in the fields of positive psychology and solution-focused therapy. 





Matthew Maxwell offers a person-centred, recovery-orientated and pragmatic approach to counselling. Each client is unique and has their own life experiences to bring to their sessions.


Matthew helps clients to explore their situation, concern or dilemma; increasing their own self-awareness and broadening their understanding of how they have arrived at this point of their lives. 


Just as importantly, Matthew explores what success looks like.  A client’s preferred future, goals, beliefs and values are all considered before implementing strategies to achieve them; ultimately leading to a greater sense of life satisfaction.





Our clients value their privacy and access to discreet, professional counselling solutions in a timely manner. Clients can access our services directly, without the need for any referral or mental health treatment plan from your GP.


Client visits are not reported to external agencies, such as Medicare or any other external organisation or department without your specific, written authorisation.
