What is Compassionate Inquiry?

I am a Certified Practitioner of Compassionate Inquiry. 

"Compassionate Inquiry® is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté that reveals what lies beneath the appearance we present to the world.

“The purpose of Compassionate Inquiry is to drill down to the core stories people tell themselves – to get them to see what story they are telling themselves unconsciously; what those beliefs are, where they came from; and guide them to the possibility of letting go of those stories, or letting go of the hold those stories have on them …Dr. Gabor Maté.

This is relevant for avoiding burnout because burnout is the endpoint of unmanaged stress. 

If we have the tendency to push ourselves for too long, there may be underlying beliefs about ourselves that we find it almost impossible to let go or or even to recognize. I support you to move beyond these.

What is Wellness Coaching?  

I am a Certified Mayo Clinic Wellness Coach. 

Mayo Clinic Wellness Coaching is a one-of-a-kind experience that blends evidence-based skill sets with insightful coaching. 

It is grounded in established research and theory of behavior change.

Through my coaching framework, I partner with you to help you identify your values and desires, transform them into action, and maintain lasting change over time.

 I help attorneys progress in the areas in which they are stuck. This could be with in relation to waning energy or enthusiasm, not looking after yourself properly, or isolation due to the nature of the work. Each attorney is unique in what they need and want.

In the Mayo Clinic Wellness Coaching model, the client is viewed as the expert in their own life.  This means that I listen to you intently without judgment and together we find sources of inspiration and past successes that help you progress and make the changes you want to.

You reach your goals with a new mindset and we explore new ways to manage such things as tiredness, overwhelm, and stress in order to live a full life and achieve the growth you want to.



Working with you has changed my work and life balance. The stress of life is still there but I approach it differently.

I can see the bigger picture... I feel like I’m in the driving seat and now have control over my thoughts and feelings. 

I have noticed that I am starting to make decisions based on how I feel and not what is best for others.

Rather than transmit anger I transform it. I feel so much lighter and have lightened my load. I feel empowered and heard. I have found my "badass" self and loving her!

Almost like unveiling an outer mask and finding your true core essence. Alleviating stress and finding inner peace/your inner self.

You come away feeling authentic, refreshed, energised and loved.

I have changed the way I make decisions on a daily basis. It is a gift you have given me and will stick with me moving forward. 

I loved working with you and looked forward to each session not knowing what would arise until we began. There was no judgement, just compassion, support, fun and laughter along the way. You have a natural soothing and compassionate presence and I instantly felt comfortable. I could be myself and open up in a safe trusting environment. You tuned in and knew exactly how far to go and when to ask the necessary questions.

I'm so grateful for the time we spent working together and can't thank you enough. You are truly gifted and your work has a huge impact on changing life for the better.

If you're looking for the switch to alleviate stress and feel energised, refreshed and have clarity, then I highly recommend Mary.

For me...it was like finding the missing piece of the jigsaw.

Being able to heal the emotional trauma life throws at you is an amazing feeling. Through Mary I was able to connect deeply and discovered what lies beneath. Mary guides you in the most calming, caring, kind hearted, non judgemental way.

It was a jumpstart to new beginnings, a new year and a new me. Mary is compassionate, supportive, professional and great fun."
