"I went to Maria terrified about having to go on TV and radio after a bad public speaking experience years ago. Maria is a genius – addressed physical symptoms and the psychological reasons that were making me panic, and turned it all around. She's phenomenally intelligent, helping me get to what I wanted to say in a single sentence. Everything changed for me - genuinely. I'm completely comfortable now; evets, live national TV and radio. I've recommended her to everyone I know. I will forever be grateful."
