Max Ekstein


  • I specialise in regulatory work, particularly in relation to the talking therapies. I have represented many psychologists at the HCPC since the HCPC took over regulation from the BPS in July 2009.
  • I have also represented counsellors and therapists in complaints to the BACP and UKCP.
  • In addition to complaints involving the talking therapies, I have acted for osteopaths in complaints to GOsC and chiropractors at the GCC.
  • I also deal with civil claims that relate to the talking therapies, osteopaths, chiropractors, and physiotherapists, including high value Cauda Equina Syndrome claims.
  • I provide training for insurers on issues relating to regulation and civil claims and have also spoken to therapy organisations about issues that can result in complaints.
