My work is all based on a heart-centred fusion:
That is, the ins and outs of what’s really going on in your brain and your child’s brain. This is the science behind how to manage big feelings, when to speak, what to say, what to do, when to teach, and how to model behaviour. It’s all backed by evidence-based research and it’s all highly effective for transforming your experience of motherhood.
This is the sacred side of our work together. I’ll be holding space for you to connect with yourself + develop your own intuitive power. We can explore feelings, body work, chakras, spirituality, symbology, emotion-based work, mindfulness & meditation, energy practices – whatever calls to you and feels true to your essential self. All of this work is grounded in authenticity and it’s all steeped in love.
We’ll also be focusing on my signature MAMA TRANSFORMATION embodiment technique, which draws from the latest neuroscience and helps rewire your brain to ‘be the mother you really want to be’. This practice is literally a key to transformation, and when it becomes your habit it can clear old patterning that may be holding you back.
The intention behind all our work together? A truly fulfilled mother (who feels sexy, spiritual and vibrantly alive!) and an authentically happy child who has ‘the edge’ in life!
When we address what’s happening for you FIRST, things will automatically begin shifting for your child.
Then, once we’ve laid that groundwork, we’ll start bringing in practices to help with the difficulties you’re having with your little one (or big one!). Together, we’ll develop a power-plan to help you get the results you want for your child.
Mothers often come to me for a specific ‘child behaviour’ problem, and end up leaving with SO MUCH MORE than they ever imagined. You’ll be learning practical skills and strategies, you’ll discover how to have your child what they really need, and you’ll know how to develop an authentically rich relationship with them – from now, right through their teenage years, and into adulthood.
I draw from a whole toolkit of resources, experience and trainings, including body-centred psychotherapy, The Journey, Expressive Therapies, The Nia Technique (science for embodied joy, pleasure & vitality), University studies in mental health and parenting, Meditation & Chakra work, Neuroscience & Mindfulness, and Reiki & Energy Medicine.
During our sessions, we’ll be using the tools and techniques that feel right for you. We might go deep into the sensations of your body or chakras and see what wants to express itself. We might dive into some releasing work, or hone in on an emotion that’s repeatedly showing up, or carve out a new level of conscious awareness.
Or we might talk about brain states and how to set boundaries whilst being deeply connected to your child, how to integrate your needs with your child’s need. You might want to explore a tricky situation that you’re dealing with. From my years of body-centred practices and working in mental health it seems there is nothing that I haven’t seen or heard before. All is welcome to explore. There is no judgement with me.
The essence of my work is about YOU – holding space and bringing awareness to what’s going on for you and your feelings. The shifts and transformation will start inside you – sparking insight, joy and release – then they’ll spill over into your child, your relationship, everything…
+ You’ve been feeling overwhelmed. You experience guilt, shame, anger, and worry when it comes to parenting and you’re ready to step up and choose a different path.
+ You’re craving a deeper connection with yourself and your child. You want to feel aligned and congruent – like your insides match your outsides.
+ You believe in the sacredness of motherhood (even though sometimes you struggle to feel it!). You want to bring more of that feeling into your life – the earth mother, the divine feminine, the peaceful warrior, the sacred soul.
+ You want your children to grow up with a conscious mindset. You want to awaken their creativity, embrace their uniqueness and equip them with the skills they need to succeed in life.
+ You’re longing for support. To know that you’re not alone. To know that you’re not crazy or messed up or doing the wrong thing by your child.
+ You’re ready to explore a new way of doing things. You want practical strategies that can help you create tangible change. You’re ready to dive deep.
+ You’re really struggling with clinical anxiety and depression or another mental illness. If that sounds like you, you’ll need to get other personal support until your condition is stable enough to work with me. For your own health and wellbeing, it’s important that you address this critical issue first, before delving into an exploration of motherhood.
+ You might like to see your GP to have an assessment and get a referral to a psychotherapist or counsellor who can help with your condition. Sometimes medication is necessary to help get your brain chemistry balanced again. Natural medicines, body treatments and exercise can also be really effective and help a lot.

|“As a psychic and intuitive teacher, I understand the role of intuition in motherhood. So when I intuitively felt something wasn’t working with my toddler’s sleep, I called on Maria. What I received in return was a deeper understanding of my relationship with my child, how to relate and interact with her better and embrace each other’s company more… and I learnt that the sleep issue was just a symptom of something much greater, waiting to be explored. I wanted to solve her sleep problems, but walked away with a much deeper insight into my daughter. While our relationship quickly benefited, I know the results are long lasting. Maria created a warm, inviting, safe space for me to explore my relationship with my child. She has such a gift – and I recommend anyone to experience it for themselves.”
Helen Jacobs, ‘The Little Sage’, Brisbane, AUSTRALIA
“Working with Maria has been transformational. Maria is the perfect blend of science and soulful wisdom. She has a gift for approaching topics sensitively and helping you to gently realise and unearth solutions to your dilemmas, in an authentic and aligned way, without ever imposing her beliefs or ideas. Since working with Maria I’ve learnt to embrace motherhood as the gift that is and use it as an opportunity for personal growth- it really is the perfect chance to crack open and re-define yourself. Working with Maria has been a blessing.”
Dr Kristy Goodwin, Speaker / Consultant / Author of Raising Your Child In A Digital World
|“Working with Maria has been a life-changer. There’s a whole new tone to our family. I feel better and more confident as a Mother. Plus I’ve begun to heal my relationship with my own mother. My partner Josh has noticed a big difference and is so glad we invested the money.
To all you other Mums out there… if you’re thinking of working with Maria then DO IT. THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE OF YOU MARIA.”
Angeliza Wanstall, Queensland, AUSTRALIA / Managing Director at A Chemical Free Romance
“Everyone needs a Mama Maria in their life. Her wisdom is profound. Her unique blend of soul and science was the key to helping me trust ME as a woman and a mother seeking more joy and stripping back the mother guilt layer after layer. Her work was like cracking a code deep inside. It opened me up to a whole new way of living and loving.”
Nicole Rowan-Holt, Transformational Biz Coach, Melbourne, AUSTRALIA
|“Maria’s wisdom and her teachings have been so powerful for me as a mother and as a woman. She helped me strip down the myths of parenting and led me out of my head and into my heart and guided me to trust my own intuitive wisdom. My entire outlook on parenting has changed to be more heart centred and connected and has helped me to create deeper relationships with my children. We are a happier family now and I feel the natural joy of motherhood more than ever before.”
The short answer? Yes! Your motherhood journey is always growing and evolving, no matter
how old your children are. Mothers of teenagers, twenty-somethings, and even older, are still faced with challenges that they need support and advice on. The other good news is that it’s never too late to start transforming the way you relate to your child, and the way that they relate to you. The wisdom in these mentoring sessions is truly invaluable, no matter what stage of motherhood you’re at.
Absolutely. I have been humbled and honoured to work with many pregnant women who are keen to lay the groundwork for conscious, intuitive parenting. Getting started on this work before you’ve even had your baby is a beautiful way to embed these principles in your mind, and ensure that you begin your motherhood journey in the most empowered, aligned way.
Yes. Because this mentoring is responsive and intuitive, we’ll immediately be able to hone in on where you’re at and continue from there. Think of these sessions as taking you deeper and further along the journey of conscious motherhood – we’ll build on the skills you’ve already learnt, delve deeper into the areas you want to focus on, and venture into a whole lot of new territory altogether.
My coaching style is almost always complementary to other services and treatments, whether they’re traditional ‘Western medicine’ styles of work or alternative holistic therapies. If you have any specific concerns, we can discuss these in detail during our 30-minute complimentary discovery chat.
