Mary offers a no nonsense approach, big dollops of pragmatism, a few good yarns and a focus on the end objective.


With a Diploma in Life Coaching, Mary’s focus is on recognising and encouraging good people who wish to achieve great things, put aside medicrity, and find fulfilment in their chosen fields of work or play.


Mary’s extensive life experience, common-sense, and ability to create space for all to participate, make her an adept and empathic mediator.

“Never try to solve all the problems at once – make them line up for you one-by-one.”
