Testimonials

“It helped to talk with Marie about issues and challenges I had in school and come up with strategies to deal with them. It was great to have someone to talk to outside the school environment and could offer a different perspective. My coach really gave me confidence and lots of positive reinforcement.”   School Principal.

She is fantastic listener an has a great way of working through a problem and allowing you to see a solution for yourself. I always leave the sessions feeling so relaxed and energised. Marie has a gentleness about her which is very empowering. She will always challenge you if she feels it is necessary. I found her honesty very empowering.”  School Principal.
