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.

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.


Maria's manner is open, friendly and receptive.... I have been impressed by her professionalism and strong aptitude for her work. She is very thorough and conscientious, ensuring that all the relevant issues are addressed but at the same time ensuring that the client feels comfortable and able to raise other matters. She is very skilled in listening, empathising and analysing points made during our session and able to quickly recall previous factors that may have a bearing on the conversation in hand. I am very grateful to Maria for her professionalism and I am happy to recommend her to others needing help.

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.

We wanted to let you know that we are so much happier and can’t thank you enough for all you did. You were fantastic!! We have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone!

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.

L. P.

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.

G. P.

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.
