Counselling and Life Coaching Testimonials from my Clients

Many of my clients have kindly written a testimonial to provide you with an idea of what can be achieved with counselling and life coaching.

To start with, I was so unsure whether counselling would work for me, but you proved me wrong and I could not be more grateful. I am shocked at how far I've come in the last year, a lot of it was down to the amazing support you'd given me, so thank you. Due to your help I have left a job, I was struggling with and got my dream job which I love! I definitely wouldn't have had the confidence to apply for such a role 6 months ago, so I can thank you for that too. You really helped me with my mindset, and I am sure that my positivity helped me get the job.
You also helped me hit my three stone weight loss and I feel so much happier within myself. I tried on a skirt that hasn't fit me since I was about 17 yesterday and it fits! I really do feel like everything is falling into place at the moment, despite COVID still being an issue.
I mean this when I say it; I have said to everyone that knew I was seeing a counsellor, that it genuinely was the best thing I have ever done, and I couldn't recommend it enough!


Life is good and my daughter and I are more settled into our new home. My new man is still very much in my life. I'm happier than I have ever been. I will never be able to thank you enough for all you've done for me. I'm healthier physically, mentally and emotionally than I've ever been. Much love.


The thing that really helped me the most was addressing the emotional aspects of becoming self-employed which I would otherwise have just overlooked, and they are very important. You also helped me to address my husband's very real concern on the subject of me becoming self-employed. Without your help I know I would have handled it very badly.


My only regret is that I did not come and see you years ago!

Maria has had a huge influence on my life. I first contacted her when I hit rock bottom after a relationship break-up, and even in the phone call to arrange an initial consultation she managed to make me feel better than I had done for weeks. She identified immediately that I was angry with myself for feeling vulnerable and afraid, which was spot on, and I knew then that I could trust and confide in her.
One of her great strengths is making you feel comfortable about talking about quite tricky issues. Maria has great insight into issues, but this is coupled with compassion.

Thanks you for all your help. It’s much appreciated. At times I never thought I’d get this far in such a short space of time... All the best.

As you know I've been doing a lot better lately and I feel like I'm in a good place at the moment.
Thank you for all your help, I am really grateful for everything you've taught me. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone who found themselves in a similar position that I was last year.
Thanks again and all the best - I will let you know how I get on and give you a call if I need help!

I really have got a huge amount out of working with you. You've helped me realise that I have been hiding from myself and I'm not going to do this any longer. I want to live my life and find out what's right for me.
I've been living in my head and not listening to my feelings. I've been listening to what others think too much.
You've been great! I've never felt judged by you. I've told you things that I've never told another soul. It's like I could tell you anything. You have such a nice way of coming across.

Over the last couple of years I have often thought about getting in touch with you, to say thank you and I am ok! Both the coaching and the counselling work you did with me made me ‘be me’ and I wouldn’t be without me now! so thank you – you really are gifted.
