You are at the top and you feel... alone. You feel the burden of responsibility, and not just for your organisation and the people in it. A lot is at stake, including the safety and comfort of your family. This is not something you can share with any of your team, or your friends and family.
It took daring to launch on this larger adventure, honouring your passion and dedication. The stakes are high. You relish it a lot of the time, but how to make sure it will work out and succeed?
You have to convey assured competence all the time, to keep up colleagues' morale, to keep your family and friends on board. You could do with an ally by your side who is *there for you*. You could do with a time when you can discuss your concerns, your challenges, in a confidential setting. You could do with a place where you get help to turn your challenges into triumphs.
I work with company founders, CEOs and executives. I specialise in socially-responsible enterprises and companies in the impact investing space.
Inevitably, leading in these cutting-edge positions asks more of you than anything you've done before. I help you span the gap.
Your situation is unique, so I work with you one-on-one to devise a bespoke package that matches your needs exactly. You don't have time for anything superfluous.
During our initial conversation, we will together get crystal-clear on your goals and current challenges, your options and obstacles and *how you can make headway* to clear the way to success.
Bring all your obstacles, hurdles and hesitations. Like you, I relish a challenge!

In conversation with the manager of an investment fund
What can *you* do for the founder of a company?
I can help them see beyond their fears. I can help them recognise what is currently in their blind spot. I can help them stay the course when their spirits are flagging.
I help clients stay connected to their inspiration and their resources. To expand on that, I can help them rally their inner resources and summon to their aid the resources around them that they may be overlooking. I can help them forge stronger connections with the people *in* their organisation and build a strong community of support *around* them.
Can you help me understand the value of what you do?
Okay, you love sailing, so let me ask you. What is more dangerous when you're sailing: the wind and the waves on the ocean, or the snags in people's thinking and the pitfalls in people's character?
When you're preparing for a sailing trip, you would take as much care to make sure that the vessel is sound as you would to ensuring that you can trust and have a mutual understanding with the people you'll be travelling with.
I recall you telling me that investors invest in people. I help my clients show up at their very best, so that they become (even more) an attractive proposition - for those considering working with them, for people considering doing business with them, and for potential investors.
My training in deep psychology equips me to see that what we call someone's character is amenable to change, and that they are capable of a lot more. I know this because I see it happen every day. I know how to promote profound change in people's patterns of behaviour (what we generally call their character) through a deepened understanding of themselves.
What persuades your clients of the value of working with you?
Often, it's as simple as a conversation about what's going on for them. I recall speaking to someone about his dream of living on a boat. I asked why he wasn't already, and sure enough he had reasons why not. So we got into talking about what beckoned and what his reservations were (I adore exploring people's long-cherished dreams! it's the closest thing to getting to hear their destiny, what their mission on this planet is.)
As we spoke, his reservations revolved, one by one, and his dream began to sound - most importantly, to him - a whole lot more real and realisable. I imagine this was very enjoyable for him. :)
After a while he said simply, "I would pay money for this!" and we set up an appointment for him to come see me.

Someone would mention his name in passing, and other chefs would get this curious expression on their faces, like the runner of Satchel Paige's admonition: 'Don't look back - someone might be gaining on you.' They'd look worried, as if, examining their own hearts and souls and abilities, they were aware that not only couldn't they do what Scott does, but they wouldn't.

"[Leadership coaching] turned out to be exactly what I needed. It was time well-spent. I got to discuss my "modus operandi" with Margarita and she worked through the details with me. She was very sharp in picking up on things that I didn't realise were pulling me back. She helped scrutinise my thought process, key decision points, and showed me what I should work on.
Now I know better where I am leading my career towards (leading being the keyword here), and have the 'tools' to prevent unnecessary stress."
Dr Spyros Skarvelis-Kazakos
Senior Lecturer in Power Electronics
"The guidance I've received from Margarita has been positively life-changing. After each session I enjoy with her, I end up with another glorious nugget of self-realisation that has a profound impact on my mental wellbeing and my day-to-day life.
Ahead of my first taste of psycho-synthesis with Margarita, I was experiencing a constant tightness in the head and chest, stress and burn-out. All of that has almost completely disappeared. I'm very confident it isn't just fleeting relief. That's because the depth of introspection she has navigated me through has astonishingly revealed some fundamental truths about my identity, behaviours, beliefs and desires. But, Margarita's magic doesn't end with that enlightening analysis.
She's enabled me to devise better ways of being. For example, we were able to pinpoint that I had a propensity to treat others with a degree of compassion I wasn't affording myself. Instead, I was continually punishing myself, which caused stress. Using role play, she helped me find a way for compassion to guide my Will (my principle desire/purpose) so I would treat myself in a more kind and rational manner rather than beating myself up when I did something 'wrong'.
I haven't felt this much at ease, self-confident and grounded in years. Rather than cowering at the thought of taking on the future and its plethora of potential problems, I'm excited by the challenge of pursuing my Will and creating the future that is most *me*.
Needless to say, I urge anybody and everybody to take the step to psycho-synthesise with Margarita, no matter who you are and where you're at in your life. If you're confused, stuck, fearful about anything or just want to learn more about yourself, get in touch with her! It could significantly change your life, like it has mine."

"So far I've had one session with Margarita, and to say that I found it hugely beneficial would be an understatement. Her approach is tender, encouraging and professional. I found the session thoroughly enjoyable and particularly enlightening.
If you, like me, are looking to truly discover and develop yourself, I'd strongly recommend engaging with Margarita. I can't wait for my next session!
