Testimonials

“Maria provided invaluable advice on how to approach various challenges presented to us. She is a clearly knowledgeable and experienced Coach who pushed us to think differently. Maria was genuinely tracking my development and offering advice tailored to my own personal journey.”

Chris, Manager, Santander Bank, London, UK


“Maria has supported me and colleagues on the i25 project within Santander. She was constantly enthusiastic and kept us on message when at times we had conflicting priorities. I would not hesitate in recommending Maria, and would welcome the opportunity to work with her again in the future.”

Paul, Wealth Management Group Accredited Relationship Director, Santander Bank, UK


It was a great pleasure working with Maria as my coach on the i25 digital leadership programme. Maria is an ever positive, great listener and coach. Over 15 months Maria demonstrated her value and really helped me with my personal development. I would gladly work with Maria again.

Ian, Programme Manager, Santander Bank, London, UK


“On a personal level, you have been incredibly supportive on a 1:1 basis and I have found it extremely useful to have you as a soundboard as someone outside of my day to day network.”

Matthew, Manager, Santander Bank, London, UK


“Maria was my iCoach during Santander’s Digital learning programme. Over a period of 15 months, she played a key role in my development journey – signposting possible outcomes, providing insight into new ways of working, reflecting back progress and generally being on hand to offer advice, guidance and someone to offload too.. I enjoyed working with Maria and believe she would add value to any organisation”

Simon, Head of Financial Crime, Risk & Control, Santander Bank, London, UK


“Firstly, I wanted to say that I’d not had a Coach before, so I was a little bit sceptical as to the personal value that I would get from it. However, I kept and open mind and I’m thankful that I did, through the journey I found it incredibly useful to set goals and targets for myself, and then discuss my progress against these. I have always thought of myself as driven and whilst I still feel this is true, I now really value the open commitment to someone independent to nudge me and to help me find the answers.”

Bob, Senior Manager, Santander Bank, UK


“Maria helped me to understand and develop my ability to make a difference by encouraging me to use the concept of ‘possibility thinking’ to turn my mind-set (and those of others) around in order to overcome resistance to new ideas. This has proven to be a simple, yet effective tool. Maria very effectively kept me focused on using the ‘possibility thinking’ technique as a way of opening up the conversations and exploring deeper options.”

Julian, Head of Reporting, Financial Accounting & Control, Santander Bank, London, UK


Thank you for your coaching skills during the E18 Programme. I really feel that I benefitted very much from your insight and suggestions. You really made me look at issues in a way that I would not otherwise have thought of. Thank you.”

Doug, Financial Crime Compliance Manager, Santander Bank, London, UK


“Maria helped me to understand and develop my ability to make a difference by training me so I have good thoughts about myself, avoiding hindering thoughts, teaching me to train the brain, filling it with positive things and preparing beforehand my meetings, so I can feel confidence in speaking up. My role needs high levels of confidence and being able to deal with very senior managers. She gave me different options and tips to change my habits of thinking. The obstacles I faced were to stop hindering thoughts, as they popped into my mind so easily. I will continue to make a difference by believing in myself, speaking up, when required and recognising and rejecting hindering thoughts.”

Marta, Finance Senior Manager, Santander Bank, Milton Keynes, UK


“Maria was a fantastic iCoach who supported a large number of senior leaders both in small groups and on a 1 to 1 basis. Across 18 months she worked with future leaders in banking to reach their potential in thinking differently with agile working and digital innovation. I would recommend Maria to any individual and organisation from SMEs to large corporates.”

Joey, Community Hub Director, Santander Bank, London, UK


“I had the pleasure of working with Maria for 18 months. During this time Maria became a valuable member of our team. Her curiosity provided insight, her eye for detail gave depth and credibility to her work. Above all her work supported others to reach their potential.”

Michael, Senior HR Manager, Talent, Santander Bank, London, UK


“I found the experience of working with Maria to be very positive. Whatever challenge was given to Maria she faced it with enthusiasm and creativity. I would recommend Maria to people who need enthusiastic, action-oriented coaching for the spectrum of junior/middle executives.”

Tracey, Leadership Specialist/Coach, UK


“Maria is an excellent Skills Coach who goes above and beyond when helping her assignees. Her coaching sessions have helped me to pass my Level 4 Investment Operations Specialist programme and she is currently coaching me for my Level 6 Financial Services Professional programme. I requested that Maria stay my Skills Coach for my Level 6 programme as I know first-hand how she has committed her time to ensure that I do the best I possibly can on my apprenticeship. Maria has been my Skills Coach for over 2 years spanning both the apprenticeship programmes that I have enrolled in and I hope to continue to have her as a Skills Coach for my Level 7 programme.”

Alexander, Ultra-High-Net-Worth Wealth Management, UBS Bank, London, UK


 

“Thank you for all your help throughout the program as well, you were by far the best Skills Coach and I really appreciate you being there to support whenever needed.”

Brittney, Asset Management, UBS Bank, London, UK


“Hi Maria, Just a quick observation following our chat yesterday. This morning, I listened to a couple of motivational videos and I can see the difference in my mood this morning. I feel like today especially, I feel like I have more energy, happier, and I’m being more deliberate about things. I’ll update you how things are progressing. Just wanted to say please don’t stop doing what you do, you are making a difference. Thanks again.” 

May, UBS Bank, London, UK


“I would like to start by thanking you for this amazing experience. My session was amazing and I must say you’re very professional. You first explained what will happen during the session and made sure I’m comfortable before starting. I must say I was super impressed. I was so relaxed and confident about a few issues I had bearing in my mind. During the session you explained that some times we know what we want in life its a matter of taking the opportunity when available. I look at situations differently today and I thank you for this once again Maria. I wanted to send you a big thank you for your help. Today I understand more than ever that thanks to you, today I’m doing what I always wanted, thanks.”

Henry, Business Owner, Malta


“Before having sessions with Maria, I was not focused on how to best position myself within the business I work in. I knew what my end goal was but within the current working structure of the business, achieving the goals were extremely difficult. Maria put into perspective my value and what it was worth – which ultimately helped me shape (with her assistance) the path forward. Maria helped me to understand and develop my ability to make a difference by understanding my value. My intellect and experience needs to be put into action whereby I am able to focus on what I am best at and what can make me the most money. Now I am able to download work that doesn’t put me in a position to make more money.”

Damon, Luxury Business Owner, Malta


“You are in the most gentle and capable hands and en route to find out a lot about yourselves. Maria is unique in combining competences such as Theta Healing, business acumen, strategic thinking, NLP, personal development, emotional intelligence, project management, entrepreneurship, psychology, etc…It was mind-blowing to see her in action! Within an hour she went in depth with my financial, personal, career and family issues … She identified clearly where the problems were and she prompted me to find the solutions and together we defined an action plan with specific goals. I felt relieved from my emotional and psychological clutter, in fact I realised how empowered and inspired I was after our session! I loved the experience! Maria is currently following up with my progress and I have no alternative but to deliver! Maria, I can’t thank you enough!!”

Ellie, Financial Controller and Business Owner, London, UK


“I had a fantastic first introduction to Maria, she was very friendly, very informative, patient and she asked all of the right questions to help me realise and reprogramme my beliefs and my issues became non issues almost INSTANTLY.
I loved that Maria had a arsenal of tools to help me from NLP, theta, success coaching, hypnosis, past life regression and although I came to her for coaching she helped me in so many other ways. She helped make me the happiest person I know and I am glad that she is in my life for tops ups, accountability and integration. She makes decisions so much easier with her 360 degree perspective and I am her biggest fan.
My only regret is why did I not find her sooner.”

AnitaDirector, Ketogenic Supplements, London, UK


“Before I started having sessions with Maria, life was an uphill struggle. Now in comparison, I’m sailing on the wind, everything comes to me, flowing freely and easily, as Maria said it would, and that’s how it feels. I was struggling to make it from one month to the next and I couldn’t do the things I wanted to, and now I have a more positive outlook in life and I am achieving all my ambitions that were previously eluding me. I can have the things I want and they come easily to me. I always look for every advantage in life to make my life better and more efficient, and I can see that the sessions with Maria are fully enabling me to achieve that.”

David, Property Investor and Landlord, London, UK


“I suffered from the subacute thyroid inflammation which would not go away for weeks. I had a constant fever and pain around my neck and throat. I couldn’t sleep. The doctors suggested steroid medication which I did not want to take due to harmful side effects. I have then started working with Maria in hope to heal my illness. She quickly identified that my problems were routed in my breakup and inability to communicate my thoughts and feelings at the time. Maria explained to me that the intensity of this emotional experience blocked the flow of energy in my throat which created the illness. Only after two sessions the pain and fever was gone and I could finally have a full night sleep. Our third session cleared the swelling and my body was completely healed! I did not have to take harmful steroids and my hormones were brought back to balance. I feared I would have to deal with thyroid problems for the rest of my life, but Maria was able to heal my body and I was healthy again. I cannot express my gratitude enough. Thank you so much! I would recommend working with Maria anytime.”

Anna, Corporate Professional, London, UK


“Maria’s holistic approach, coupled with her outstanding coaching skills, she managed to change my life in one session by removing my negative blocks. I feel absolutely amazing, she has put me in touch with my intuition in a way that I have never experienced or could ever of imagined. Maria is an absolute angel & one of a kind, I cannot recommend her highly enough, she has even helped me feel at peace & helped remove anxiety with all that is going on with the world & Covid -19.”

Sam, Travel Industry, London, UK


“I have done lots of healing work. I had a fantastic first introduction to theta healing by Maria, she was very friendly, very informative, patient and she asked all of the right questions to help me realise and reprogramme my beliefs and my issues became non issues almost instantly. She is very skilled at asking questions to unearth root causes of any issue and I had a few. Sometimes there was a few days integration and maybe a top up session but I know I made the right decision for me. Theta can be taken as a quick fix for sure and I have friends who have made profound changes after just one session, but for me it is worked to do a number of sessions, obliterating block after block and Maria did a fantastic programme of change in six sessions. Although I came to Maria with blocks and problems I am really excited to work with her again to set intentions and have a warrior of sorts clearing the way and watching my back.”

Anita, Business Owner, Birmingham, UK


“I’ve worked with Maria a number of times on relationship and money issues. Ive felt every session we’ve had has been a great success, with Maria uncovering deep subconscious beliefs that I didn’t even know where there and I’ve always felt lighter and more positive after each healing.

The last time we worked together, I needed some help in finding the right house to buy, for myself and my son. I had not sold my current home, but I viewed a house and fell in love with it. Unfortunately, it had an offer accepted on it by another buyer and I was struggling to find anything else that came close to it. After working with Maria to try and uncover what was holding me back from finding a suitable house, I was contacted by the estate agent to say that house I loved was back on the market and I have since sold my property and had my offer accepted on the new house! I’m so grateful to Maria for clearing whatever resistance I had to obtaining my dream home and she’s definitely invited to the house warming!! I would highly recommend Maria for helping with any challenges you may have – she is a highly skilled Theta Healer!”

Nicola, Account Manager, UK


My session with Maria was incredible. From the start you were making sure I was comfortable and happy to talk about the issues that were on my mind. The initial discussion to outline the areas I wanted to work on was conducted with great professionalism and care. You managed to put me at ease and by gently breaking down the issues into more understandable chunks which made me feel less anxious and overwhelmed. Then, by using NLP techniques, you began to make me feel that I had the confidence to improve myself and that with the right attitude I can achieve anything.

I especially enjoyed the session and I felt great, very relaxed and when I stood up I genuinely felt 10 feet tall. Walking back to the station I noticed a spring in my step, a smile on my face and and genuine air of confidence. The next day at work I was amazed to find I had a more positive attitude and was able to deal with things with a lot more ease.

I would like to thank you, you are a natural. I will definitely be recommending you and look forward to further sessions with you. Many thanks”

Graham, Technology Manager, Investment Banking, London, UK


“Maria, I just wanted to start by telling you how wonderful your services are. I did one session with you and one of the key things we discussed was my ability to stay calm in stressful situations and to shift focus from the negativity of the situation to the actual goals I need to accomplish.

A couple of days later I had a situation where someone was screaming in my face and pushing for a physical confrontation. This went on for a good 30 minutes and I was extremely calm and controlled throughout the whole situation.  I have been in the same situation many times before but was always reactive and upset. Also, after the confrontation, I was able to quickly regain focus and went back to getting what I needed done.

You are incredible. Your voice, attitude and style of interaction are exactly what are needed with the work you do.”

Navid, Business Owner, Los Angeles, USA


“I chose to have a session with Maria to help combat my fear of job interviews. Before an interview I would feel very nervous, sometimes would even get physically sick. After my session, which was the day before a recent job interview, I woke up on the morning of the interview feeling calm, confident and with no sign of nausea whatsoever! For me this definitely worked and I have already booked in with Maria for my 2nd interview (yes I was successful in my first one).

Maria has a very calming voice and allowed me to relax deeply and comfortably. I usually find it very difficult to concentrate when trying to fully relax or meditate and I always get the giggles when trying to concentrate on relaxation. At the start of my session I was, as usual, giggling but Maria calmed me right down and I was able to fall under a complete state of relaxation which was great. I stayed in this state, right up until Maria brought me back; and funnily enough, the giggles were back. This for me shows that this definitely worked and she had put me into a state to reach my subconscious during the session. I am really looking forward to my next session with Maria.”

Kirsty, Insurance Senior Account Manager, Malta


“Being quite skeptical to anything different to the norm but with the want to self improve, I try to be open minded for all different methods to lead a happy and healthy life. When the opportunity to experience Intuitive Reiki with Maria came my way I was excited to try something new, set my bar of expectations to low (as my natural instincts tell me) and set about my new experience and opened myself up to it as far as my skepticism would let me.

The whole experience was unreal – relaxing and rejuvenating to say the least. Things happened to me in the process (good things) that I couldn’t explain in any other way than the fact that this technique works for whatever you’re searching for – even if you don’t know what that specifically is. Maria spoke of my private life status which revealed how I viewed my relationship and whether there was truth in my own judgement, relieved the pain of an injury to my leg and answered a question I had privately asked to myself. Going back to the skeptisism I have to alternative healing methods, I have to keep reminding myself of the moment my session ended where I was left feeling elated, relaxed and stress free. My ongoing attitude is positive and I woke up this morning looking forward to the day ahead.

I will be going back for more sessions as I feel personally it would be something I would benefit from as form of ‘body maintenance’. Thank you Maria for opening up this skeptic mind and I look forward to having this experience with you again.”

Dawn-Marie, Essex, UK


“Maria carried out Intuitive Reiki on me and I had a positive and relaxing experience. I was having back pains and was leaning over at the start of the session, however, immediately after the session I was able to sit up straighter and felt much better and felt relief for a few days after. During the session I was taken back in my mind to think about when I didn’t have any pain, and this comforted me. Maria also gave me advice on what changes I should be making to ensure a happy and healthy future. I would recommend Maria for her ability to put you at ease and offer helpful relaxation and reduce stress.”

Philip, Retired, Essex, UK
