" My year working with Maria was amazing. I loved how solution orientated the process was. If you can do the work that coaching requires you can go very far, very fast. In our year together I saw improvements in my business, my family and my life overall - and I continue to see improvements in all these areas. If you're ready for positive change - invest in yourself and contact Maria - you will be so glad you did."Leah Tremain - Tremain Media Inc.
Working with Maria has been an amazing experience for me. Both in my business and personal life I have grown and continue to push myself to new levels of understanding. Maria has a great ability to help you figure out what's really going on to help you move closer to your goals and helping map out a viable plan. Giving you the tools you need so you can stop standing in the way of your own success.Joyce Carson - President of Merle Norman Cosmetics & Day Spa www.crmerlenorman.com
Investing in me and hiring Maria was one of the best business decisions I have made. Thank-you Maria, I look forward to continuing working with you.
"Life coaching is something I never understood or believed in. However, Maria's approach impressed me because it was very structured and professional.
After about 6 months my conversations with people, especially clients, became more open and easy. I was no longer afraid to say what I think and I was no longer afraid of their responses. My listening skills also improved. My closing rate increased to 90% from 50% since I’ve been working with Maria.
Maria helped me bring my inner self to the surface, resulting in improved personal and business relationships.
I highly recommend her to help you discover your “authentic self” and become more successful in your life."Maria Lee - B. Sc. Hons. Maria's Anti-Aging Strategies and Treatments
"In three months Maria helped me realize how I was holding myself back from working with more private clients. She helped me push harder, expect more of myself and stay on track towards my goals. She helped me increase my income to a level I hadn't enjoyed for over 10 years!"Amy Englemark - Amy Englemark Coaching Company
"Six months of coaching with Maria is one of the greatest gifts I've ever given myself. I chose to start working with her during a time of expected transition. I was a new lawyer, uncertain about where I was going and what I wanted from my job, and my career. Six months later, I am choosing between three exciting job opportunities. All three are opportunities that I didn't even know existed, and are certainly not things I saw as 'possible' half a year ago. With Maria, I worked through the uncertainty, and my own patterns of resigning myself to things that I think I "should" be doing or that I "have" to do. I practiced patience with myself and with my progress. More importantly, I practiced getting into action to go beyond where I normally stop, and staying in action or returning to action when I hit setbacks, disappointments and fear. Through it all I felt supported, loved, understood - Maria was a partner whose commitment to my success never waned for a moment.
The awareness I generated through my sessions with Maria about my own tendencies and habits has allowed me to relate to uncertainty and change in totally new ways. I feel a new level of confidence in myself and my ability to keep generating momentum, no matter what the circumstances. I'm incredibly grateful for Maria's powerful coaching, and the partnership we generated in creating what I want. I can't wait to work with her again."Alex Etchell - Lawyer, Fisheries Policy Analyst
"In the 14 months I have been working with Maria I have increased my business income to more than I had made in the past 5 years. I have created an exciting, effective and motivated team. I have accomplished several major goals in both my business and personal life. My business and personal relationships are stronger and my future outlook is incredibly positive. Maria has helped me communicate, connect and lead at a whole new level. Our coaching has transformed my approach to business and life and I could not have continued building my business without her. I'm grateful for the decision I made hiring Maria!"Janet Martyn - Partylite Team Builder
“When I first met Maria, I felt things in my life were going pretty good. Why did I need a life coach? She told me she helps people grow their business and being self employed, I was intrigued. After our free consultation, despite many fears, I started working with Maria on a weekly basis and continue to do so.
Our sessions have brought me contentment in all aspects of my life. Through simple practices, powerful questions, personalized projects, and reflection, I have significantly changed my life. . . extremely quickly. I feel as though nothing can stand in my way, both in business and personally. My relationships are stronger, I am attracting more clients and income, and I have reduced stress and tension.
Thank you Maria for helping me to remove obstacles which hold me back and for guiding me to live my life from a place of love and passion rather than fear. You are amazing. I am forever grateful.”Leah Mouritsen - The Mortgage Wizard
“I have been working with Maria for 8 months now. In that time not only have I achieved many goals but also grown as a human being. I have had Maria’s support in taking on the world of self-employment and creating a vast social network in a city new to me. One of the greatest impacts working with Maria has had is my ability to practice self-compassion. Maria stands for my possibilities and what I want to create in life and that is reflected in her coaching style. She has a generous, fun spirit!”Sarah Schneider - Leadership Coach & Vision Strategist
"I have had the pleasure to work with Maria for a year and a half. She has been remarkably caring, patient, and supportive throughout this journey. My time with Maria has been personally, very busy, yet she continues to provide accountability for the goals I have set in my life. She consistently guides with enthusiasm to help me achieve things that I had once thought were impossible.
Maria has been instrumental in shaping the person I have become. Looking back on what I have become and what I have achieved since first working with Maria, it is easy for me to say I would not be where I am today without her knowledge and guidance. I look forward to future challenges with her in my corner.
The goals I have achieved are:
Running my first ever marathon AND Qualifying for the Boston Marathon on that first try!
Successfully completing my Masters degree.
Presenting on topics of passion and in my field of study for the FIRST time -online, local, provincial, and national conferences, all in the span of a year.
Becoming a father and taking it on the way I want.
Getting a new job!
Following my dreams to move abroad.
Thanks Maria!"Marcus Down
“我接收这个咖啡店已经一年半的时间了。在这一年当中，Maria给予我不少的帮助。上到政府部门办理各种手续，下到与总公司的联络接洽，左从员工的培训，右到展柜里食品的摆放，事无巨细，店内的运行妥妥当当，井井有条，让我这个初来乍到者减轻了不少压力。在Maria 的帮助下，员工的服务意识、销售意识也比以前有了飞跃式的提高，客户好评不断。我在Maria 打好的基础之上，对店内的运行管理非常得心应手。杨琳 Tina Yang - Owner Serious Coffee Campbell River, BC
Two months after I began working with Maria I released my first app. I started this project 3 years ago. Maria is a gifted life coach and mentor and has the unique ability to see what is happening on a subconscious level. She has helped me create new patterns of thinking with her arsenal of tools. She is able to create a safe and nurturing environment which has allowed me to set goals and talk about my fears honestly. I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to work with Maria.Nina Baksh - M.Sc Founder Out of Bounds Apps; GIS Coordinator, City of Campbell River
This has been one of the best investments I’ve ever made.
