Her integrety, attention to details and her passion is what makes her work so powerful. She is brilliant and I simply can not recommend her services enough.

  •  I went to Maria terrified about having to go on TV and radio after bad public speaking experiences years ago. She is a genius - worked on physical symptoms and the psychological reasons that were making me panic. She's phenomenally intelligent, stopped me rambling, helping me get to what I wanted to say in a single sentence. Everything changed for me - genuinely. I'm completely comfortable now; events, live national TV and radio without crumbling. I've recommended her to everyone I know. I will forever be grateful.
    - Julia Buckley, Journalist and Author
  •  I contacted Maria after receiving feedback concerning the nasality of my voice which as a lawyer was crucial to my work, especially in the courtroom. The benefits of her work were immediately noticable and I have subsequently received compliments about the quality of my voice when speaking in public. I really cannot state the value of her services strongly enough.
    - Charles, Lawyer
  •  At last I am able to decide how much of my native accent I want to use. Your method has made me feel confident but has not left me feeling I have compromised my identity
