What others say…
“Being coached and guided by Maia, I have found that there is a way out of problems I have carried for so long because I thought there was no help. Nothing I had tried before had worked. An emotional upbringing and a stressful work environment were taking their toll on my state of mind, my wellbeing and my personal and professional relationships. Coaching is a development journey that I strongly recommend and it has made a major difference to me in my work and personal life – a difference I can’t thank Maia enough for.”
“I never would have thought it possible that Maia could have such insight into situations in my life – situations she couldn’t know as I was there, not her. She just seemed to be able to tune into my head and my experience of life and shed light on it in a way that has impacted very positively on my life. Her coaching has made a big difference.”
“Developing greater understanding of my personal aspirations has liberated my thinking, The sessions have helped me gain new skills and influenced real changes to my behaviour and direction. I would recommend Maia to anyone caught between a rock and a hard place.”

“Maia coached me in finding more balance in my life. She helped me to rediscover a part of me which I had forgotten, and helped me to see a broader perspective than what I was living in. Maia is a powerful coach and will support you in fulfilling your dreams.”
I sought Maia’s professional assistance as a Life Coach at a time when my high-paying career no longer gave me any satisfaction. I was feeling empty and creatively drained but was anxious about what to do and what not to do. The sessions with Maia helped me clarify my values and goals, not just relating to work and career issues. Life Coaching helped me pinpoint the things which really matter in my life and gave me the confidence to move forward.
“Maia invited me to step more fully into my power. It was one of the most profound experiences of my life! She teaches effortlessly, leading by example and never in a ‘preachy’ or hierarchical way. She relates with you and shares from her personal experiences, really listening and feeling the energy of where you are, and where you’re coming from. But I must say that the most awesome method she uses to show you yourself and your personal truth is by asking you questions – and in doing this, you are remembering, rediscovering, and making the connections in your own heart and mind about what’s highest and best for you, not just taking advice from someone else. It’s so refreshing to have someone direct you back within, as many of us have a tendency to look outside ourselves for the answers!
Anyone who feels guided to connect with her will be forever grateful, I know I am.”

Personal story ‘The frog barometer’
For those who would like to dig a little deeper, Maia shares her personal journey and how she could relate to a frog!
Out shopping one day, I came across a keyring with a cartoon picture of a cranky, down in the mouth frog. The accompanying words were, ‘I’m so happy I could just s**t.’ Well, I was so thrilled to find it and buy it. It felt so good to know that somebody, somewhere, understood me, and that there must be others out there who felt like I did otherwise the keyring wouldn’t be mass produced, right? Suddenly I didn’t feel so on my own, and I felt good about that.
I was a miserably unhappy, negative person. I hated my hometown, my job, my boss, my life. I was thinking, “Why me? It’s not fair! Life sucks!”
… I was way down in a deep hole – a big time rut at the ripe old age of 19.
Thankfully someone came along who had the insight, wisdom and objectivity to help me become aware of what was really happening and open my mind to new possibilities. It turned me on my head and even though I ‘shot the messenger’ at the time (I thanked them 20 years later!) it was the catalyst I needed to turn my life around and set myself on a path of personal discovery and growth … and I had no idea at the time that it was my ticket to freedom.
Today, I am a completely different person – so much so that I can hardly believe I was that teenage pile of misery. I’m happy, positive and upbeat. I am recognised for my equanimity, I have peace of mind and I perceive things and handle things in a much better way for much better results … and importantly, I have maintained this way of being over many years.
And this is not just lip service. How do I know this? Because it was put to the test in a big way during 2013-2014. Over that two year period:
~ My father passed away
~ Just one month later my mother was touch and go for several weeks after having a stroke (right in front of me) and heart issues
~ My mother became an invalid requiring care 24/7 (which I shared with my three siblings)
~ Immersed in family dynamics
~ Began menopause
~ Dealt with health issues
~ Went through maggiage separation (and later, divorce)
~ Moved house
~ Walked away from a thriving business I helped create
~ Started again to create a new business
… and I stayed steady, peaceful and centred through it all, and felt strong. Yes, it was challenging. Yes, it was intense. What I reflected on – which really struck me – was that I had had my first mid-life crisis at 19 and my second at 30. In the thick of this intense period, as I reached the more usual age for a mid-life crisis, there was not a whiff of one anywhere even though there were plenty of triggers. Talk about a litmus test. I must be doing something right.
Over the years I sometimes figured things out myself and sometimes had a helping hand. While there is nothing wrong with working things out yourself, there is also nothing wrong with seeking support or guidance. While some people have the belief that it is a weakness to seek support, I actually see it as strength of character. Looking back, I wonder how much better results I could have been getting in my life – and how much more quickly – if I hadn’t been so slow to seek and benefit from good guidance and good life tools.
Having evolved my own life to a happy and successful place, I wanted the same for people who I could see weren’t happy. I’ve shared the human experience – trauma, fear, pain, loss, love, joy, happiness and laughter. I’ve put in the miles to make the best of it all, and I’ve experienced the massive change within myself. With my desire to inspire others to enrich their lives, it was a natural progression for me to become a life coach and an NLP (Neuro-Linguistic) Practitioner.
I quickly discovered the contribution I could make to people’s lives in helping them to empower themselves. It was so rewarding to see such positive change in such a short time, to witness people shift to a new way of looking at things, to see their enthusiasm and delight with the results they were getting – it blew me away.
Ultimately I came to realise my motivation is for each of us to reach our highest potential – if we choose that – not only for personal benefit, but for how that contributes to the collective to create a better world.
My evolution and contribution is a lifelong commitment. I’m willing to admit it’s my one big addiction (okay, it’s one of three – joy and chocolate being the other two!) The high I get out of it is considerable, sustained and with no negative side effects, so naturally I recommend this addiction to anyone!
It is a great privilege to be a catalyst for others – the endless and timeless ripple that extends from it are far beyond what any of us could possibly comprehend … what a phenomenal thought!
