DOES The word soul awaken OR STIR something in you?

Are you a values-driven woman in business who has been motivated by logic and linear thinking most of your professional life? Have you strived for perfection and success relying on your left brain? As a result, you are excellent at what you do…

…BUT you also have a soulful side.

A side that has grown bigger and louder, reminding you, nudging you, that you carry incredible wisdom within. Wisdom that you have been hiding for a long time and that is now yearning to be used, to be seen, to surface.

Are you seeking a safe space to explore your leadership and how soul can help you in business?

Do you have a vision for who you want to be? How you want to show up, how you want to lead?

Are you curious about your inner voice, your intuition, and how to use it for making decisions?

Are you yearning to explore, integrate, and put your gifts and inner knowing into practice?

Let me take you on a journey that reminds you of who you are and what’s possible.

Taster / Tune-up Session

This is perfect if you’re curious about connecting with your soul, exploring your values, or uncovering the inner wisdom that is ready to be shared, to surface.

If we haven’t yet worked together, book this taster session. Or, if you’ve had sessions with me in the past you can use this session for a tune-up.

Soul's Values Journey

Your soul’s values signal to others how you are choosing to move through life. They are the bridge between where you are now and who you want to be.

A deeper dive, this journey is centred around my North Star Formula. It provides a path to clarity, alignment, empowerment, and greater freedom.

Wisdom Leadership Journey

Using deep awareness, this exploratory and collaborative journey will result in a visual of your bigger picture: your CORE, emerging direction, and leadership.

Are you a believer that outer leadership is born from inner leadership? Unlock a deeper understanding of what is next for you.

A quick introduction.

I take you on a journey of inner discovery that will impact your career, lifestyle, and decisions, should you so choose.

More specifically, I show you your truth. I use my tools to reflect what is inside of you, your inner knowing.

This journey encourages you to uncover and use your gifts. Gifts which provide a sense of freedom, joy, and acceptance in your life, of who you were born to be. As a result you will influence others, a new generation of children, to show up as they truly are.

I guide you to uncover what’s already there, rather than feeding you something new. Your experience will influence those around you to get curious and to embark on a journey of their own.

What others are saying…

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 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 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.

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!

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.

Anna Stensdotter

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!
