In A Nutshell…

I bring lives into balance and heal soul and physical wounds,

I support people to resolve emotional and mental barriers,

I guide people during important transitions, in crisis and at thresholds,

I midwife people to birth more of their Divine nature and wholeness,

I help people empty themselves to make space for the embodiment of the Divine within,

I help people expand their consciousness and deeper their awareness,

I inaugurate new phases and growth.


How Maia works

What I do

I am interested in real conversations and real feeling, growth through grace and challenge, and embodying what it means to be whole and sovereign. I will support you to:

~ know who you are, develop understanding of your unique purpose, and awareness of yourself and others

~ feel and love yourself and others, receive life fully, and cultivate balance

~ be fully empowered through your Divine presence, releasing what is not yours 

~ showing up with inspired living your unique purpose with leadership and service 

I heal, counsel, facilitate and guide. I work astrologically, psychotherapeutically healing shamanically and with the Divine. For more information see healing modalities

Who I work with

Over the years I have worked with a plefora of clients; from famous footballers, musicians and actors to those on the breadline, from young offenders to the elderly, different orientations and identifications, professionals, therapists, leaders, students, start-ups, women’s groups, trustees and CEOs. I work with all.

How I work

My style and way of working is always informed by client needs and a situation as it presents itself in the moment. I am someone who believes in asking the right questions and listening to the feedback, working collaboratively to meet and support needs; this is what leads to real transformation, deeper relationships and lasting change. For the deeper process, see here for more on how I work.

What I work with

My work explores our multidimensional vastness and our true state of being; my ultimate aim is helping people rediscover their sovereignty. To be self-governing, we need to process life challenges and crisis points at different levels. Different dimensions of consciousness or frequency bands which are essentially multiple, interwoven waves of consciousness, sometimes densely woven and then playing out awkwardly in our reality. We are each aligned with (or stuck in) different levels of reality at different times in our lives, and being adept and fluid in transitioning these different levels of reality; from deep, heavy, dense, low energies or states to high, essence, sentient, siddhic realms of consciousness, allows us to naturally stay in balance. Creating fluidity is key.

Being in balance, resonance, and reconciling the internal and external conflicts is foundational for health and wellbeing, and returning to our true, creative state. Journeying to the depths, experiencing suffering and extreme states are sometimes necessary for growth, yet returning to balance, understanding the cycles of our lives and bringing back gifts from all the dross is also foundational for health and longevity. We don’t need to always grow through challenges, this we can move beyond.

Working with my Divine presence and the God-Goddess consciousness that moves within all things takes us quickly to the source or most urgent issue, and often brings new awareness or resolution to old patterns. Sometimes addressing our everyday lifestyle choices at foundational levels is also core, as simple behavioural changes can bring big shifts. It’s always been clear to me that all levels of being and doing need our attention for permanent, resilient change, which is why this work is functional medicine at its best, addressing soul, spirit and body.

I always place heart at the centre of my life and work, and have a boundless, grounded faith in people, potential and spirit.  

What to expect from a session

People come out of a session with me feeling peaceful, rejuvenated, light and transformed, with a new awareness of who they are, and what’s needed and possible in their lives. 

Here are some facts about me: I am a devoted student of life and love exploring different modalities; my own inner work as bedrock. I have also been in many years of therapy and supervision myself, so I understand the process of change deeply.

In no particular order, all the following ‘labels’ apply, but I do prefer to be label-less so I have the freedom I need to work at whatever level is required. I am an empath, psychotherapist, counsellor, shaman, hypnotherapist, healer, astrologer, psychic medium, lightbody surgeon, Goddess initiator, tai chi practitioner.

I have a keen sense of discernment and see through the nonsense and destruction of the current dying paradigm. Yet also honour its teachings, something we cannot and should not want to deny or escape.

I support individuals and groups of women and men through sessions, workshops, courses and classes, and enjoy tailoring my approach to individual needs – the uniqueness of each client is what creatively drives me.

I am passionate about my Sovereign Being project inaugurating the Sovereignty movement in it’s highest form – as a Divine revolution.

My highest service is to expand my heart and let it be a bridge between heaven and earth, unifying the split, separation and fragmentation.


About Maia

Who I am

I started getting involved in the world of personal growth, healing, therapy, facilitation, teaching and training in my twenties. I have completed over 15 years of training in many modalities, and I have had quite a rich journey of experience in a kaleidoscope of working environments from prisons and schools to the UN and business sector. I have been self-employed as a healer-therapist for 14 years and counting.

Maia’s story

From a very young age, I knew I was a little different and that I was here to do something a little different.  I occupied an undefined space somewhere between an Atheist father and a Protestant mother; I could both empathise with but not find myself in either of their value or belief systems. Early on, I identified as the black sheep of the family. I also grew up in a hamlet outside of three large villages, so was always more on the edge or outside of community, belonging nowhere, but getting on with everyone, especially those that were outcast by others. I always stood up for those who were a little different, as I intrinsically understood what that felt like.

I was born knowing something, but much of my early experience taught me to disavow my intuition, feelings and body. As a result I was profoundly cut off from my spiritual gifts and Divine purpose, and I didn’t know there was even such a thing as inner truth was, let alone how to access or articulate it.

It wasn’t until my early twenties when travelling Australia in 2003 that my path was revealed to me through a life altering experience that left me with no choice but to call for help from whatever it was that existed. Within moments I fell asleep for twelve long, deep hours. I awoke feeling so still and calm, something was profoundly different, somehow the suffering had been lifted out of me and all I felt was peace, it lasted many weeks. I knew nothing of the Divine other than a biblical God, but a week after that experience, I experienced profound synchronicities through books and people who entered my life to teach me about the path of spirit. I was very quickly catapulted onto my spiritual path and I immediately knew that my path was to be in service to the Divine.

From that moment on all my struggles, and there had been many, began to make sense as the lenses through which I saw my experiences was transformed.  But my real unfolding, or unravelling hadn’t even begun, and for many years, what followed was many lows followed by a solitary, occasional high.

In the meantime, I devoured every spiritual and psychotherapeutic book and went on every spiritual course. My training is diverse and deep. I’ve worked with some brilliant therapits, mentors and teachers, but I still continued to experience a very tough version of reality.

It was not until 2011 when I had a very direct encounter with the Goddess through a series of powerful initiations, that I experienced what I call instant ‘real’ and ‘permanent’ transformation. The grace of the Goddess purified me so deeply that my massive lack of self-love and self-worth dissolved in what I can only describe as a miracle, revealing the infinite all-abiding love that had always been within me. Of course there is always many more layers to lift to stabilise the feeling of that infinite love within, but I got my first taste of a miracle, as a gift of grace.

From that point on, I placed my inner connection with the Goddess, the Sovereign Being within, at the cornerstone of my life. Through a gradual surrendering of my ego desires over to Her desires, which continues to this day, I am learning to give ownership and trust over to my heart, my body wisdom and with time, over to my Sovereign Being within.

Now years on and having ridden many a wave, I navigate my own tides well enough to be a spiritual guide for others, receiving soul’s calls for help in the process of awakening, transforming, deepening and refining. I see my role as a vehicle for the flow of Unconditional Divine Love, the healing power of our earth Gaia and the Divine Mother’s presence. Giving birth to my son, Isadore, has been a huge part of this heart opening journey.

Although this sovereign journey will never end, I have reached a place when nothing can daunt or phase me, and so here I feel so much empowerment. And so I now consider myself a highly seasoned, capable spiritual guide, healer and therapist. I deeply understand feelings, blocks, body, relationships, hurdles, people and life. I experience my multidimensionality in an everyday, moment to moment sense now and I learnt the long and hard way what actually works for our healing and emergence into this new consciousness that is fast arising on this planet. To get me to where I am now took many years but under my mentorship and in these accelerated times, you can make quick progress.

I would see it as an honour to initiate and journey with you as you grow and expand, whether it’s for a reason, a season or lifetime.

Maia's Development & Training

Maia’s development

Astrology has always been a passion of mine since my early twenties. In 2007, I began my work as a healer, training intensively for 3 years with the Spiritualist Association of Great Britain. At the same time, I trained in psychic mediumship. In 2009 I trained in spiritual counselling and hypnotherapy, learning also the soul plan which I work with extensively. Shortly after I realised I needed far more training to be able to work effectively with clients, so I commenced a 10 year training programme in Process Oriented Psychology, a form of psychotherapy with it’s foundations in Taoism, Jungian psychology, family therapy, alchemy, shamanism, body work, mythology and communication theory. There was a strong focus on awareness, following process, deep feeling and essence – which are all at the core of this work. At the same time, I also began my journey into qi gong, tai chi and martial arts, a journey I am still intensely on. During this time, I also undertook training in different forms of shamanism, ancestral and past life work, other forms of healing and light work, which brought me into more direct contact with the Divine and of course the energy system. At the same time my work with astrology deepened and I incorporated also the Human Design system. Besides cultivating all my clairs – audient, voyant, sentient, cognisant – I also developed my work with divination systems beyond astrology (I’ Ching, Tarot, archetypes and others), the pendulum and kinesiology. I am currently studying the CHEK Holistic Lifestyle Coach; a functional medicine approach which brings together body, mind, soul and spirit. 

Over time I expanded my repertoire further, creatively integrating what I learnt and now I combine the mysticism of ancient spiritual traditions, esoteric systems, Goddess work, innovative psychotherapeutic interventions, Divine tools and practical, functional medicine that looks at the body’s processes.

I value an intuitive & guided approach

grounded in professionalism

& ethics.
