"I went to Maria terrified about having to go on radio and TV 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 phenomally intelligent, helping get to what I wanted to say in a single sentence. Everything changed for me - genuinly. I'm completely comfortable now; events, live national TV and radio. I've recommended her to everyone I know. I will forever be grateful"
