Vandana Mahan

I have worked with Maria Goldsmith for ten years. Maria has resolved complex, sensitive cases. Maria has helped staff return from sickness and special leave circumstances and helped staff leave with dignity and compassion.

Vandana Mahan, HR Transformation at Capita

As an alternative provision providing education for learners with SEMH, The Pavilion can be a challenging environment for staff. Maria has provided opportunities for supervision and counselling as well as mediation sessions if, and when, needed. She is a fundamental resource at The Pavilion that supports the well-being of all staff, providing fair but firm encouragement back to work and challenge where needed. Maria has also lead a number of effective presentations to staff regarding professional behaviour and leadership.

Evangelitsa Savva

Maria has an ability to gain one's confidence, to be objective and to listen. In my opinion Maria has the ideal qualities required for a counsellor.

Evangelitsa Savva, Management Head at Ashmore & Co Estate Agents

I have worked with Maria for a number of years now, and I asked Maria to provide a bespoke training course over a number of days to a team of newly appointed managers. During the delivery of these sessions she tailored the content to meet the needs of the group, focussing on specific areas as needed and as requirements changed. The feedback from my team was that Maria delivers training in a very engaging way that is both theoretical but also provides practical applications, they were 'buzzing' at the end of the sessions and I would definitely recommend using Maria for any training, mediation or counselling needs.

Blaise Egan

Maria is a counsellor with a great deal of experience in personal relationship advice. She speaks openly and honestly, but with sensitivity to others' needs. She has the knack of enabling others to talk candidly and helping them to examine their own feelings and needs. I would certainly recommend her.
