Are you…?

Are you facing an important change in your life
with no clear idea how to move forward?

Are you sick of other people “should-ing” on you and not respecting your boundaries?

Are you wondering how to reconcile the demands of your life with your values and dreams?

Book a 50-minute self-leadership session with Madi and:

✔ have difficult conversations with courage, trust, and hope
✔ discover the freedom of asking for what you want
make choices from a place of certainty and peace of mind
✔ nurture honesty, connection, and acceptance in your relationships

“When we internalize the difference between how I feel in all my wisdom
and what I do in a values-aligned action, we generate the pathway to our best selves via our emotions.”

Susan David Ph.D.
in her TED Talk “The gift and power of emotional courage”

Working with Madi means:

➤ tweaking your beliefs and mindset SO THAT you deal gracefully with the challenging behaviors (of yours or other people)
befriending your anger, guilt, and shame SO THAT you set goals and boundaries from a place of self-empathy and acceptance
➤ fine-tuning your habits SO THAT you live in alignment with your needs and goals
➤ having a trusted ally SO THAT you can speak openly and find the best solutions for yourself


Here are your questions answered:

Is this a type of therapy or coaching?

NO. The sessions with me are not related to any form of therapy or coaching, nor should they be interpreted as such. For counseling and related advice, please seek the support of a qualified therapist.
I am an educator and a facilitator. I am creating a safe space for you to explore your celebrations, mournings, and possibilities.

What types of people are a good fit for Madi’s sessions?

My ideal clients are people who:
➤ have the desire and personal will to change
➤ are aware there is no quick fix, that the quality of their lives and their relationships have deteriorated over weeks or even years and can’t be mended in one hour
➤ make time and commit to putting in the work necessary for change
➤ show up with an open mind and curiosity
➤ trust Madi enough, to be honest, and open

What can Madi guarantee?

The results in your life rely on the actions and, ultimately, the commitment and work done by you. No guarantee or warranty is made regarding the results of my sessions. The tips, suggestions, and recommendations are tips, suggestions, and recommendations only. Do your homework and make decisions that feel right for you.

How long are the sessions?

Each session is 50 minutes long.

How is a session structured?

Each session contains 4 elements.

Element #1: You have a safe space to open your heart – no judgments, no criticism, no interruptions. The first minutes of the sessions are for you to vent and tell everything that’s alive in you.
Element #2: Before brainstorming with you what it would work in your case, I make sure I have clarity around what’s happening for you. I quickly check I heard you correctly and I identified your feelings & needs.
Element #3: We explore together what worked or didn’t work for you so far, and possible next strategies.
Element #4: You commit to 1-2 strategies until next time we meet.

There is no linear timeline for these elements and their durations vary too.

What time zone is Madi in?

I am in the Eastern European Standart Time (EEST).

What is the Confidentiality Policy?

Confidentiality, truth, and respect are the core of all my work and sessions.
I imagine the difficulty of sharing personal things with a stranger and how vulnerable you probably feel. I take it very seriously and I feel honored by your trust. I assure you that what we are going to discuss will only remain between us, and the notes I will take, besides keeping them safe, will not have any of your personal data.

How do we meet?

Via platform (free, online, available for desktop and mobile).
You need a computer or mobile device with a camera, a microphone and a reliable internet connection.

If you haven’t used Zoom so far, please create your account and log in BEFORE the meeting, so that, when the time comes to meet me, you just click the link you received and join me.

Do I have to book a number of sessions at once?

No. I want to support your ownership and autonomy in your process – you will book your sessions one at a time whenever you need them from the times available on my online scheduling calendar. I update my calendar weekly for the next two weeks.

How much does a session cost?

I am requesting a sliding fee of $60-$120 (USD) for each session and you pay AFTER the session. You will receive a follow-up email with the summary of the session and the link to the PayPal page. The fee must be paid before scheduling another session.

There are no discounts, no minimum sign-up period, no guaranteed regular time slot.

What happens after I apply for a new partnership with Madi?

Here are the steps:
1. You apply for a new partnership.
2. I read your answers and reply to you within 1-2 business days to let you know if I consider myself a good fit for supporting you.
3. If I decide we are a good fit, my email will also have the link to my calendar with the available slots for the next two weeks.
4. You choose the slot that it’s the most convenient for you and follow the steps of the process to book that slot. The slot you choose will be put in my calendar automatically.
5. You will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link to our meeting, other useful details, plus the link for cancellation.
6. You will receive a reminder for our session 24 hours prior to it.
7. When the time for our meeting comes, click the link in the confirmation email or in the reminder email.
8. We meet and spend 50 minutes together.
9. After our meeting, I will send you a follow-up email with a short summary of our session, the link to my PayPal page, and the link to my calendar.
10. You pay for the session.
11. (optional) You go back to step 4 in this process.

What’s Madi’s cancellation policy?

It would meet my need for consideration and appreciation if you click the cancellation link in the confirmation email at least 48 hours before our scheduled session (or as soon as you realize) that you will not be able to attend.

The fee for last minute cancellation or for no show is $60 (USD) and must be paid before scheduling the next session.

What are others saying after working with Madi?

Working with Madi is like having a caring friend in your corner, who shows up and is present and clearly committed to supporting you and helping you to grow. I have received the empathy and care I was so longing for – and her summaries [in the follow-up emails] helped me to really pay attention to what I was wanting to work on.

She brightens my life and helps me to be brave in facing aspects of myself that frighten me and feel difficult. I have gained some clarity and willingness to ask for the help that I want.

I recommend Madi without reservation and wholeheartedly to anyone wanting to grow and learn more about self-care.
