“I found the sessions with Marie, to be relaxed and informative. Marie helped me to understand why and how I handle my life, both in work and in my home life. I have always felt happy with who I am. But Marie has shown me how I can better channel myself into all situations. I have nothing but praise for what she does, and feel a lot of people would benefit from her expereince and skills as a coach. I have recommended Marie to others, as I have been inspired by how she has made me see the real me.”

“I found Marie’s coaching style to be very informal and friendly which then made it easier to open up and think things through in a safe enviroment. I would definitely recommend Marie to others. I am the kind of person who would normally take these type of coaching seasons with a pinch of salt but I can honestly say I found it informative and enlightening . I enjoyed the sessions and got a lot out of them.”
