More about Maria I am the mother of two boys and two girls. I grew up in the North Island of New Zealand. I have worked in England and Australia and travelled throughout Europe and Africa. I have been studying and practising holistic and complementary medicine for twenty five years.
My Experience as a Transpersonal Coach My belief that a supportive relationship creates the fertile environment for growth, transformation and healing led me to train as a transpersonal coach. It is my own journey as a mother that places me in the ideal position to support women who, through all the years of their giving, want to find themselves again.
My Experience as a Flower Essences Practitioner My experience with Bach Flower Remedies led me to essences made from New Zealand's native flora. I now work with the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®. I have come to love the way they gently restore emotional and spiritual balance and harmony. For myself, I now experience a stronger sense of self, and a better sense of well-being that flows into all areas of my life.
For my clients, I have helped support women to move through the difficulties of separation; helped children become more grounded and confident to begin school; helped teenagers remain positive and cope with emotional turmoil; supported clients going through surgery; expectant mother’s experiencing anxiety. These beautiful essences work to provide a myriad of ways to support all our individual needs.

Sabiene's Transpersonal Coaching Testimonial Maria is a gifted and authentic coach. I've had lots of business and personal coaching experiences and this process and outcome was far more heart-felt and beneficial than others. Maria entwines structure and intuition to ensure there is a forward movement, yet more than sufficient time to dwell. I felt a strong trust and connection that contributed to a delightful result for me which will help my ongoing journey. Sabiene, Sydney, Australia
Lily's Flower Essences Testimonial Maria has assisted me over the last eighteen months to address a number of issues in my professional and personal life, through the support of the First Light Flower Essences. I have consulted with her face to face and long distance by phone and both have worked. Maria listens carefully and asks questions and occasionally offers pertinent examples from her own experience to gently help tease out the key issues and guide towards a resolution. It is a collaborative process whereby her knowledge and sensitivity combine to support exploring and determining which essences resonate most strongly. She welcomes feedback and insights on the effects of taking the essences. For me, the changes are subtle yet always on reflection there are noticeable events and realisations that link back to the essences. Overall, I feel more effective in life and more at home within myself as a result of my work with Maria. Lily, Christchurch, New Zealand
