The Conscious CEO


Founder & Director – The Conscious CEO

Hi I’m Maria,

I’m the face behind The Conscious CEO and I am passionate about mindset and helping others achieve their desires, especially in the area of business.

I’ve grown up in a cultured household and have some serious programming over the years which led me to undo and rediscover who I am. Over the last 18 years, I’ve gone through a number of career’s and owned my own businesses, all for the need of fulfilling other people’s expectations. Not really knowing who I am.

Since 2016 I took a different path and learnt more about the working of the mind and how it can affect one’s quality of life. I started with a focus in the health industry helping those with health concerns and how the mind influences the healing process.

This led me into a different direction when I saw multiple business owners being amazing at what they do, however have no clue as to the working of creating a sustainable business.

Neuro linguistic programming (NLP) was an absolute game-changer. It created a 180 on my life and I then became obsessed in empowering others to make empowering choices. Not only can one be an outstanding technician in their business, but also know who they are as a business owner to confidently sell with ease.  

As a certified coach and trainer in NLP, Time Line Therapy® and Hypnosis, these tools catapulted their businesses in rediscovering who they are by letting go of what was holding them back psychologically. Things like self-confidence, self-belief, perfectionism and fear of uncertainty. It took them to the next level of who they are as an individual, both personally and professionally.

We all deserve a happy, fulfilling life and in order to do so, it all starts with you.

The Conscious CEO offers specialised training and coaching for coaches, consultant and service based businesses.


“To enable you to create the business and life you want by installing within you the habits and behaviours of accelerated human excellence.”

The Conscious CEO combines of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques, Time Line Therapy®, Hypnotherapy, and Business Practices to help you achieve your goals in all areas of life.

Maria’s guidance aids you in making the choices that support your financial, business, personal or professional development growth.

In 2016, Maria decided it was time to move onto something bigger than the health and fitness industry and to expand her mission to a wider scope… and so The Conscious CEO was born to help individuals resolve conflicts and unravel their complicated lives.

Since opening the doors to The Conscious CEO, Maria understood the financial pressures businesses were constantly under and the effects it had on relationships, health and families.

Today, we understand that mental health is the centre point to any person’s success, and Maria imbues this belief in her clients.


A Conscious CEO is a business leader with a robust and adaptive mindset. They know how to strategically think and have a high level of conscious awareness when communicating with themselves and others, and have trained their minds in being aware of obstacles and challenges before they arise.

Most coaches, consultants and service-based business owners hit a wall because they jump straight into the strategy and don’t know how to ask themselves the right questions. Such as “what is the purpose of me doing this”; “how else can I do this?”; “What would happen if I do this?”

By being aware of your internal communication you are able to significantly increase your communication skills with others which will help you make more sales, attract your ideal clients and sell your high ticket offers with ease

The Conscious CEO core programs in business and NLP run for 12 weeks, with ongoing coaching and certification training programs that run for 6-12 month sequences.

The Conscious CEO emphasises three pillars of human change that delivers transformation quickly and easily:

    1. Strategy: The development and implementation of profitable business skills for growing your business;
    2. Mindset: Conscious sales, negotiation and communication skills that influences with integrity;
    3. Consciousness: The inner awareness because many sales and business problems are solved when our underlying beliefs and assumptions are identified and addressed.
