Counselling and Healing, Maria Lacey

In 1999, as a sole parent of two beautiful children, Maria took a leap of faith. She left her lucrative corporate career and followed her heart into the health and wellness industry.

Maria's early childhood trauma which filtered into her adult life is the very key to her success as an empathic, compassionate, and intuitive therapist and healer.

She's an advocate for inspiring hope and transformation to those who have experienced adversity and trauma in their lives.

Maria gently empowers her clients to heal through their deepest pain and emerge with purpose, wiser, more confident, happier, and in harmony with their desires and potential.

Her passion for writing is inspiring thousands all over the world through articles and books based on the human and spiritual path. Maria has been published by McGill Media, Sybil Magazine, several professional journals and has two published books.

Maria's personal journey has fuelled her heart and activated her purpose with more strength and deep connection, and twenty-one years on, Maria continues to hold a sacred and loving space for those ready to heal and flourish.

She believes, "When the heart knows, the mind follows".

Supporting Our Community

One of the most important aspects of community is to ensure we support and care for each other. Below are the three causes close to my heart:

Animal Aid - As an animal lover, I understand how they can, and do, enhance our lives in many wonderful ways. Our domestic animals need to be cherished and nurtured as part of our family. Find out more here.

Make A Wish Foundation - I had the pleasure of being a volunteer for a period of time. This organisation is for the benefit of children who have life threatening medical conditions. They grant wishes specifically requested by the child giving hope, strength and a little joy to all those involved. Family, friends and volunteers all benefit from the smile and delight of the child receiving the gift. I personally feel these beautiful children have an amazing strength and resilience, and teach us so much about the human spirit. Find out more here.

Scope - For people with a disability. Personally I have been a volunteer with the intellectually disabled from the age of 16 and worked for a number of years raising funds for Cooinda Hill in Gippsland. I continue to work with, and feel blessed in the presence of those with disabilities. People with disabilities have so much to share and teach us, and it was Charlotte my cerebral palsy client, who encouraged me to leave the corporate life, and work in Reiki full time. She kindly said, "Maria I am your messenger and this is the path you must travel". I listened, and I have never looked back, and will be forever grateful for her sharing this message.
