"Maria has been my coach-mentor over a period of 12 months, whilst participating in the 'CTI Leadership Programme' in Sitges, Spain, and I loved it! Maria has the ability to listen to what is really happening, ask the right questions and, when needed, offer different perspectives and options to consider.

Maria's experience in the Coaching and Leadership development area is a precious source of quality information. When I needed to be pointed in the right direction, I had suggestions on how to go further in my search (books, videos, leadership & coaching tools, etc.) I have been touched by Maria's warmth and openness. Don't approach to work with Maria if you want to stay on the surface of things. She will quickly bring you to the roots."
