"It is through your inner leadership that your outward life will truly correspond to the nature of your intention."

"Maria was so accurate with my reading. It was the specific detail that she was able to share. I truly felt I was in the presence of matakite. Nga mihi."

- Aroha James

“For over 18-months I had been feeling lost, without much direction, without joy - basically a mid-life crisis! Maria did some incredible work with me which helped put me back into the driving seat. Now I wake up each day looking forward to what's coming.”

- Rebecca Knight

"I couldn't help smiling as Maria read for me. What she sais was bang on, and describe me to the letter. It was amazing. 

- Jade Cooper

“The series of coaching sessions we had together has changed my life. I felt I had been on hold for 2-years, and I've come away with a new lease on life. You were thought provoking and opened my eyes to a new world.”

- Ray Hudson
