Thank you for coaching me. Since we have been working together, my life has changed in a very positive way. You taught me how eating properly is about feeling great and having more energy, and not about strict nutrition philosophies. Your make-up workshops and fashion tips have made of me a stylish woman and I feel so feminine now.
I feel great, I look my best! I get so many compliments from people around me.All this together, has made a me a more confident person and I am ready for the years to come.
Thank you so much for what you do and for being in my life!Mariangela Steiner, Switzerland
Many times I wanted to start something different that pushed me to live a better life, to take care of myself, organize my life and, why not, to enjoy my life a bit more. Many times I found myself starting a project but unable to complete it. I gained weight throughout the years and now I have to buy clothes three sizes bigger than before.
Now I decided to win the war against overweight. I received a refreshing “brainwash” of love for my body. Now I understand the importance of looking good, feeling healthy and managing my time.
The coaching I received is very helpful for organizing my life because it gave me specific guidelines to juggle my different roles as an employee, mother, wife and healthy person. I made a commitment with myself and I want to meet my goals.
The style coaching gave me the tools to take care of my looks and be a more educated shopper; in other words, knowing what type of clothes and hairstyle fit my body type better. Why shouldn’t I look gorgeous?
The nutrition coaching helped me to believe in myself that I can do it in spite of how difficult losing weight is and how much effort I have to put into it.
Maria’s coaching has been an integral training that encompasses the human, emotional, and practical spheres of my life. I know that I can rely on a guideline that motivates, pushes and, at the same time, protects me.

Since going shopping with Maria, my life has changed for the better. She found the style and cut of clothes that fits my body and lifestyle. She shows me the accessories I need to create an outfit or make one better. She has helped me find my sense of style and she has enhanced it to fit today’s fashions. Not only am I happy, but my husband is as well!

For me the workshop was a great experience. Maife showed us how to use our own makeup correctly and explained us the does and don'ts. She gave us some hints how to use it for every day and also for special events. The atmosphere was relaxing and encouraging. At the end of the workshop I went home not like another person painted like a parrot, but like me, inspired with new ideas.

It is key that our image reflects who we truly are. If we take care of our own image, we are going to feel better, increase our self-esteem and be more satisfied with ourselves.
Maria Fernanda helped me to understand the importance of my personal image and how to take advantage of it. It is very important that somebody else shows you how everybody perceives you because sometimes this image differs from the image you want to project to people.I am a teacher and in my profession image is very important because students pay attention on everything - the way you dress, your hairstyle, your posture and your body language. Everybody knows that adolescents scrutinize people and pay attention on every little detail.
Thanks to Maria Fernanda, I feel really good, healthier, and with more energy. I also learned to eat better and benefit from my personal image, which in turn boosted my self-esteem.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Spanish lessons with María Fernanda. I found her method of teaching extremely motivating. She came up with new exercises every class to train different language skills - there seems to be no end to her creativity.
I recommend María Fernanda as a style consultant. We went on a half-day shopping tour. I get compliments whenever I wear the outfits we picked together that day. Plus, I feel more confident picking out clothes since she pointed out some dos and donts to me.

Nous avons eu la chance, mes filles et moi-même, de bénéficier des conseils de Maria Fernanda, au niveau de choix de vêtements comme pour se maquiller et se coiffer; mais aussi et surtout sur l'hygiène de vie en général avec toujours une vision très positive et très respectueuse. Un grand Merci pour toutes ces grandes leçons de Vie...

There are certain times in your life when important change is needed. But change is never easy, especially if it relates to key areas in your life. I learned that one cannot fundamentally change on his own; a safety net is needed. While the responsibility for changing is only ours, having somebody who listens to you, understands what's important to you and helps you accomplish your most dearest dreams is priceless.
This is the kind of support and understanding I got from Maria Fernanda.
In spite of how difficult it is for me to ask for help - since my culture is Hispanic - it's been completely worth it to work closely with Maria Fernanda.
I definitively recommend her as a coach for anyone who is very serious and committed to improve his or her quality of living.
Vor knapp zwei Jahren war ich in Miami und ging zusammen mit Maria Fernanda Kleider und Schuhe kaufen. Ich wurde sozusagen von Kopf bis Fuss neu eingekleidet und gestylt.
Es war ein tolles und spannendes Erlebnis. Wir haben viel und gut eingekauft und doch wurde ich zu nichts überredet oder gedrängt. Ich wurde sehr gut beraten. Maria hat ein sehr gutes Auge um zu sehen was gut aussieht und auch passen könnte.
Wir haben alle Kleider ausprobiert. - Gut Aussehen und gut gekleidet sein ist nur möglich, wenn es sich auch gut anfühlt und wirklich passt. - Nur nach diesem Motto wurde eingekauft.Bis heute habe trage ich diese Kleider regelmässig und gerne. Ich habe durch die Beratung von Maria Bergen-Salvador gelernt mich modischer zu kleiden, selber einmal etwas freches und cooles zu probieren und dann auch zu kaufen. - Wenn es wirklich passt und gut aussieht darf es auch etwas Kosten.

I was so desperate to learn Spanish that I had Maria come to my office over lunch time to teach me! She was not only a very thorough teacher, she also, and particularly, recognized that I am impatient and eager to learn. So she immediately adapted and accelerated the speed of learning. The playful and yet earnest way she teaches encouraged me to be less impatient and more serious, realizing it is a difficult language to learn. But she made it possible.

Los contactos con tu persona me han permitido enfrentar de manera más positiva este nuevo momento de mi vida. Luego de mi jubilación estoy encontrando formas y diferentes cosas (culturales, ecreativas, deportivas, y productivas) en que ocupar mi tiempo y que me producen satisfacción. Imagínate cuan agradecida estoy de tu apoyo concreto y decisivo.
Thanks so much for the interesting workshop I attended!! By sharing your knowledge with me I am now motivated to experiment with new colours and be bolder with my makeup.
You have some really good ideas and showed me the essential make up tools I would need.
Leaving the workshop with a list of make up recommended for me has been great to remind me of what I learned and how to experiment with the new ideas. A workshop I would recommend to everyone who cares about their skin and looking good !!!

I did Maife's makeup workshop and it was excellent. She was quick and precise showing me how to apply everyday makeup in about 5 minutes. I left there more confident and a lot of people noticed the change, it was not only my makeup but also my attitude. I highly recommend her.
