Navigating the path of self-leadership sometimes means walking the path less traveled.
An intuitive systems-thinker, I have a unique ability to identify opportunities for deeper alignment, wholeness, and overlooked potential in systems, processes, and an individual’s own ecosystem.

Maria asks the most insightful questions that help her clients to realise who they truly are, what they really want, and what’s truly important to them. – Sara Price, Actually
“By understanding and changing structures that are not serving us well (including our mental models and perceptions), we can expand the choices available to us and create more satisfying, long-term solutions.” – Michael Goodman, Systems Thinking
The above quote summarises perfectly what’s possible when we understand structures, processes, and systems in our business and personal lives.
An intuitive systems thinker with over 30+ years in business operations, and two decades of self-development, I have developed a passion for conscious self-leadership.
It is said that a systems thinking perspective needs Courage, Curiosity, Compassion, Clarity, and Choice. Some of my favourite words.
Others describe me as grounded, values-led, process-driven, and deeply intuitive, and I have a knack for seeing a system, visualising it, and knowing how it all connects.
Whilst other people are looking at jigsaw pieces, Maria can see the box lid without ever being shown it. – Jo Rawbone, Flourishing Introverts

What others are saying…
Maria is an extraordinary listener and her questions get right to the heart of an issue allowing you to tap into your soul, to identify how it wants to be expressed in your work and role as a leader. I would not have the clarity and rediscovered courage I now have without her help.
Maria’s curiosity calls are such a wonderful opportunity to take a tour of your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and values. I know I am in safe hands when I speak with Maria, and that any vulnerabilities will be carefully received and guarded. I am grateful for this recent conversation because it seems to have unveiled some aspects that I now feel able to explore further to gain deeper clarity on my values, vision and purpose. Thank you Maria!
Maria’s genius is her ability to hold a space of genuine non judgement which allows her clients to be brave, to explore things that they perhaps wouldn’t explore in a different conversation or context. She asks the most insightful questions and then holds space and listens – allowing her clients the experience of being genuinely listened to, without judgement, without expectation, with complete openness: helping them to realise who they truly are, what they really want, and what’s truly important to them.
Her connection with and complete trust in her inner wisdom and intuition is inspiring: it creates an environment in which people can begin to trust their own.
Maria is an extraordinary person to work with. I hesitate to call her a ‘coach’ because she is so much more than that: a coach, a mentor, a wise and intuitive guide and a wonderful presence. I thoroughly recommend working with her.
Maria creates a safe and energized space for exploration & discovery. Through her heart-led questions and deep listening, I was easily able to draw out business and leadership gems/insights that wanted to make themselves known. I highly recommend her as a soulful guide and companion in the exploration and deepening process.
Through insightful questions and deep listening, Maria helps you to navigate your inner voice and wisdom. She supports you in finding your own answers, and she creates an environment in which you can begin to trust your decisions and way forward. Maria helps you to explore your strengths and the way you see things through a new dimension that was not there before. A call with Maria is energizing and leaves you with options and ideas to continue your self-development.
Maria has this magical ability to connect and really listen. She has a grounded, earthy energy that really helps me and my soul to feel at ease, to think clearly and to feel part of an exciting journey. Besides this she has this powerful way of mirroring and reframing what comes up in me, and there is a very energetic bond between us during our talks. I have laughed a lot, and I now feel lighter, happier, and above all, more connected to source. Maria has intuitive skills beyond the ordinary. Thank you for being my gate opener to freedom, power and creativity.
Words are not adequate to describe the value Maria has added to the work I am doing – through deep listening, she took the words I used to describe my ideas and vision for Conscious Finance and presented them back to me in a way which totally transformed them – and my understanding of them. It was revelatory and added several dimensions which were not there before.
Working with Maria is like starting on the ground floor with a flat image of something and then through a collaborative exploration, suddenly seeing it from a much higher dimension where the totality of the vision can emerge. Thank you Maria, I can’t wait to see the next iteration!
I highly recommend Maria to draw out and reflect back your highest values. This values work has totally changed my life! Really empowered me to negotiate a relocation, to increase my prices to new clients by 25%, plus I’ve been clear cut with family about my new working day. There’s no going back and quite simply I now feel very alive!
