This is a 6 weeks mentorship program to transform how you do things in life.
The way you do things IS FUNDAMENTAL. Is it aligned with your deeper self? You will run smoothly. Is it misaligned? You will burn out.
Burning out your health, your relations, one job after the other or your finances is not the way to go. Hopefully you are not there and will never be. I have been.
Your fulfillment or resentment pretty much depend on it as well. Life can turn chaotic, exhausting and profoundly heavy. Or it can be an adventure to be explored.
Whether you are all the way down or just wandering on my site you may be now at a turning point, only if you wish.
a six week 1:1 mentorship for aligning yourself with who you really are
Mis-alignment manifests in many ways:
Exhaustion. All signals confirm it. You have no energy. You feel heavy and tense. Your head’s spinning wildly. As much as you try to change, “nothing changes”.
Tension. You ́re clenching your teeth and tightening your muscles. You ́re preparing to step into the unknown, but you hesitate. You want to let go, but you won ́t. You're holding onto it and you feel it in your back.
Restlessness, anguish, sadness. Dreaming of something better for yourself and your life gets you excited. Your lack of clarity about what you want and how to get it pulls you down. You have high expectations and perfectionism paralyzes you.
Lack of joy the vivre. You ask yourself what is the point of it after all?
Stagnation. You ́ve come to a dead end. You need something new or new ways to go about it.
Chaotic living, overthinking, overacting, and lots of must-do´s bring us to this point.
Staying in this place just because you don´t know where to go, burns you out a little more.
Everytime you say to yourself:
"I hate it, but I´ll do it"
“I don’t know what I want”
"I have no money".
"I’m too old".
"I have to be more [...] and better [...]"

Live on autopilot, you turn off.
Fool yourself, you get away from your truth.
The purpose of this 1:1 mentorship program is simple:
To get you aligned and back on track.
alignment is something
on the inside…
Clarity. You´ll recognise where you want to go and start moving there step by step.
Expansion. You´ll release into your body and regulate your energy. You´ll know when to rest and when to flow.
Focus. You´ll be determined to fulfill your purpose while being flexible and persistent.
Curiosity. You’ll make your way guided by your gut.
Joy. You´ll experiment with life playfully.
Trust. The result of all the above. You’ll no longer be fighting life, you’ll be living it.
Peace. You´ll recognise that you´re where you ought to be.
how does it work?
Embrace is a 1 to 1 mentorship program.
Free session. Embrace begins with a 60 minute discovery session (free). This free session is a gift for yourself. You will gain clarity about your goals and will learn if working together is a good fit. Then you are free to decide. No risk.
6 weeks. We´ll be working hand in hand during our 6 weeks to achieve your goals. You´ll have a sweet and firm ally by your side.
6 online sessions. You ́ll have a weekly 60 minute session with me via Zoom. Each session has a specific purpose we discuss before hand to help your progress. You´ll be seen and heard. You´ll learn to connect deeply to your body and emotions. You´ll make decisions and act accordingly to what really matters to you right now.
6 audio recordings. You ́ll have an audio recording for each session . Sessions are usually loaded with information. You´ll be able to listen to them as many times as you need, and to listen to yourself as you unravel.
1 online playbook. You ́ll have an online playbook to keep track of your progress. You´ll be able to gather notes from your sessions, questions, answers, revelations and action plans in one single document. During the time we work together, we´ll both share a Google Drive folder and have access to your playbook. You can ask me questions and update your progress and I can answer you back. That way you won´t need to wait for the next session and will progress on your own tempo.
Limitless micro mentorship sessions. Whenever you need, you can contact me via Voxer. Voxer is a free app you download on your mobile or PC and works as a walkie-talkie. I ́ll get back as soon as possible within working hours (9:00 to 18:00 Madrid time).

You´ll challenge yourself with lots of “But I can´t...”. You´ll explore the “but-gap”. That´s: resistance.

“I do lot of work on myself and it´s hard to imagine that in one discussion, I could get so much value! She had a beautiful way of helping me realize exactly what I need in my life right now. She´s an impeccable listener and had the right intuition to get me to a breakthrough realization about myself. There´s so much more that she has to offer. María, thank you so much for this invaluable insight.”

real life stories...
He needed help to release the tension in his neck. It was painful, it impeded him to turn his head to the right and he felt limited and frustrated. For someone wanting to make a major life transition from consultancy to opera singing fear can be paralysing. Facing “the big questions” and learning to embrace his fear moved him ahead into his journey. As a result his singing has improved dramatically.
“I am freer. I understand myself. I know what is important to me and I am in peace. I face my career with confidence. It is the same in my personal life. Truly living and not just going through life on automatic makes all the difference to me now.”
- Julio C.
the ORCHESTRA DIRECTOR
Challenge: AUTHENTIC CONNECTION
“During rehearsals and concerts I lose contact with the orchestra. When that happens I tense, I withdraw and the music does not flow. I never know when that is going to happen and that scares me. It is holding me back”.
Communication is the thing for many of us. It starts with an honest and profound communication with oneself. Finding stability and confidence in his body, being in touch with his feelings and emotions paved his way to a more powerful and authentic leadership.
“Working with Maria has given me clarity. I have learnt to connect with myself. I am cristal clear about my needs and purposes right now. I know how to express them and how to get there in the best possible way for myself and others. That is fundamental to my profession”.
- Francisco V
Challenge: UNBLOCKING SELF-EXPRESSION
Hers was a journey to catch up with life. Nearly in her forties, mother of two, an academic and solopreneur career: lots of demands, “must do”, exhaustion and not quite being where she wanted in her life. She was anxious.
We took it simple. Back to basics. Common sense. Joy. Making up, dressing up. Facing truths. Embracing contradictions. Living the questions. Moving ahead.
“I needed to get lighter to move ahead. You have been such a big support to me in this transition time. I have learned to speed down and to lower the noise inside my head. I am so happy with my new project. I hope we are out for the summer!”
- Laura S.
the GENERAL DIRECTOR
Challenge: THE COURAGE TO BE WHO YOU REALLY ARE
This is a story of manifesting one’s vision while coping with reality. Company reorganization, change, resistance, pressure, goals, expectations parallel to his personal challenges, shadows, emotions, enthusiasm, discouragement and concerns about how all this affects his family. Learning to trust his guts and finding confidence to do things his way.
“I have learned that there is more to me than the sympathetic and intelligent man. I can take risks, be creative and be myself all at one. I can take distance. I can think with more clarity and make better decisions now”
- A. C.
Can I take a single session?
Yes, you can. You´ll need to be very clear about your purpose. Individual sessions last 1h30. You´ll get your audio recording, but no playbook and no support afterwards. You´ll be implementing on your own. If you need feedback afterwards, you can always book extra session.
How do I know if I need the whole program or single sessions?
Take a minute and listen to yourself. You´ll know. If you´d rather go for the full program, but are afraid of time and money costs, fill in the application. I´ll advice you.
Are there payment plans?
Yes, there´re. I´m committed to making my work accessible to everyone. I don´t charge more for that. It works on a basis of shared compromise and responsibility.
Is there a refund policy?
No, there isn´t. Embrace is a 100% tailor-made program. If we both do our part, it´ll deliver what it promises. Actually, in most cases it over-delivers!
Do we always meet on a weekly basis?
Yes, we do. More than a meeting a week would be too much and unneeded. More than a week between meetings, usually gets you out of focus. There can be exceptions. We´ll always go for the best outcome.
Do you have any other questions?
Book now your Discovery session. I´ll inform you about costs, payments and answer any other questions that may pop up.

“What kind of professional is Maria? María is like a friend who listens to me calmly and attentively. She listens to me with her whole soul. She holds me with love while I express myself fearlessly. Without touching me, just with her eyes and her voice, soft, quiet and deep, I can feel how my body aligns and what needs to get out of me does: my souls awakens and expands in her presence. Maria is a safe space, discrete, quiet; a friendly mirror in which you can recognise yourself and grow”. Lola G.
“María has been an enormous support in this transition in my life. I needed to let go in order to move ahead with new projects. Her sessions helped me to learn how to speed down and lower the noise in my head. I feel in control and capable of dealing with uncertainty. As a coach and as an Alexander technique teacher María has an enormous capacity for empathic listening. She is very intuitive and could recognise in each word and gesture what I needed to move ahead. I am very grateful for each of our conversations. So happy I have met you in my way!”. Laura S.
