What Others Have Said About Us

I consider myself a seasoned professional, skilled and competent in many areas, but when it came to public speaking I used to feel very uncomfortable, and did my best to avoid it.

For my own development I knew it was important to overcome this challenge, so I decided to get professional help. A friend recommended Maite, who turned out to be the perfect coach. She is professional and non- judgemental, and she made me feel at ease straight away.

She created a specific coaching plan for me, with clear objectives and measurable steps, and we worked intensively together over five sessions. As a result, I have become a better public speaker and a much better communicator generally. As I started to believe more and more in the value I was delivering, my overall confidence increased too. It was an exciting journey of self-discovery, and I feel much happier in my own skin.

Colleagues started noticing the difference in me after just one coaching session with Maite. I’m sure that being more confident made others see me in a more positive light, which improved my relationships with them and probably also helped me get a pay rise.

Today I feel better equipped than ever to deal not just with the day-to-day challenges, but with whatever comes my way. I’ve learned new tools and strategies that I can use at any time, for the rest of my life, and discovered how to master my thinking so that I look at the world and those around me from a new, more positive perspective. I’d recommend any ambitious professional who wants to raise their game to work with Maite. I know they will be glad they did.

Your warmth, enthusiasm, belief in me and incredible breadth and depth of understanding made our coaching sessions an enjoyable, challenging and rewarding experience. I will wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone who is serious about achieving their true potential.
