Tips before the call:

I often ask people to fill out this optional Strengths questionnaire before our first session (, or if they have completed other diagnostics and are comfortable to share these , to do so. These are some other useful questions to ponder before our session:   

  • What is the main thing you want to get out of these coaching sessions? 
  • How important is this to you on a scale of 1-10? (if not very, it may not be the right topic to coach on)
  • If this coaching were to prove really worthwhile for you, what would be happening (in your work, life etc) that is not happening at present


"Turning dreams into reality: It’s funny, because about a month ago I came over the email you sent me when we were having our sessions and I read through it. Most of what I had imagined is actually coming true …when I reread your notes it made me realise how well everything is coming along. Subconsciously the sessions have helped me a great deal and life is going the way I wanted it to. Thank you so much… although the sessions were absorbing and challenging at times, I really benefitted from them." - Rita, Senior Investment Banker

"Considering career options: “If I hadn’t seen Maya I may never have come to take the significant step of starting my own business. I was at an important juncture and Maya helped me to articulate my professional and personal aims and approach them holistically.,,,We even visualised ambitious revenue targets and I was surprised to see that the company met them in the first year. I have never looked back. If you are facing similar dilemmas – go and see Maya. I certainly plan to keep going back." - Zara, Documentary Film Director
