Maria McGrath

Introduce yourself

HI my name is Maria McGrath, I am 46 years old, & I live in a small country town in Central West NSW, Australia.

My business is called Restore Balance & Harmony & I am a Creatrix® Transformologist® & FEMALE mindset expert!

What is your business about

My business is about helping women HEAL their head, heart & soul at their deepest core level, with an organic, fast & painless process called Creatrix®!

Creatrix® has been designed by a woman, specifically for the Female mind & body.. It is a modality with a full therapy inside of it, & the only Epigenetic breakthrough process, 100% designed according to the science of epigenetics….

After a Creatrix® breakthrough, your beliefs have changed, thoughts have changed, values have changed, focus has changed.. The therapy inside of it makes sure the painful or negative emotions & beliefs never come back…as you are replacing them with YOUR unique soul wisdom, your own learning that you do not get in any other modality…

After all the only person who can truly HEAL you is YOU!!

Creatrix® is a virtual reality process that’s done with your eyes closed, that causes you to unlearn your issues at the very root until they drop away. It is like nothing else out there, not psychology, not NLP, Not Hypnosis, it is its’ own process, designed for the way the female brain is wired.


ReLease– Negative emotional and limiting Blocks -The focus and care factor shift,

ReLearn -Get your unique life learnings and knowledge.  The beliefs become productive instead of sabotaging.

ReFrame- Thoughts and entire perspective changes

ReCode - Deletes inherited negative patterns and cycles and strategies are replaced for when encountering the old triggers.

ReCreate – You can live life the way you want it without those patterns and cycles that were keeping you stuck.


Recent studies show that women fill around 70% of seats at most personal development courses, seminars & workshops. We are searching for answers, for the tools to create change in our lives…..  & we keep going back, again & again because the majority of women are NOT getting results. Trouble is, when these don’t work, we then beat ourselves up as we think there is something wrong with us, wondering… “why doesn’t this work for ME? Why can’t I make this work” “What is wrong with me”?

This is why we need to understand that there is a gender difference, & we have just been using the wrong tool, the incompatible software for our hardware! ITS NOT ME, IT’S just the wrong TOOL!

Up until now, medicine, convention & the personal development world have not considered or taken into account the MALE V FEMALE differences… There is such a lack of understanding about our emotions, the hormonal differences, & about how our brains work, which make the gender differences, even personality differences MATTER… They ALL matter!!

Women are different!!

Our physical bodies are different, (this we know), our brains are different, our hormones are different (women’s fluctuating every day of every month, of every year).  Even our retinas (inner layer of the eye) are different. Females see things differently, we view & perceive the world differently to males, & how we process those images & thoughts is different as well! We are creator beings, we were created to be different, we are meant to feel differently to the protector beings. We are more emotional (8 times more crying hormone!) while males are more logical… (generally speaking… there is always exception)

Imagine…. the iphone & the Samsung – 2 devices that can do the same things (generally) text, calls, video, internet, download music, etc… BUT the software & hardware from an iphone is NOT compatible with any Android phone… This is the same for the Female & Male!! We need our own software, that is compatible with our Hardware.

And Creatrix® is THE tool/process that works for the FEMALE MIND… hands down, every time*, & at a deep & lasting level.

I help women to completely cut the ties with all their past trauma & emotional pain, as well as old patterns or conditioning, & ‘beliefs’ that are holding them stuck or not serving their greater good…

I have found that many women are struggling in their career & business, because they have beliefs & fears that hold them ‘stuck’ or in endless procrastination. It could be fear of :- rejection, being judged, criticized… self-doubt, low self-worth, lack of confidence, feeling like a fraud or ‘imposter syndrome’.. Something a majority of women have is some variation of “I’m not enough”.. not good enough, smart enough, skinny enough, successful enough….etc…

Creatrix® helps a women access their deepest OWN Wisdom, at their deepest sub-conscious, their- intuition, source or soul, (each woman would have a different way to describe this, depending on beliefs, it’s the same place.. regardless of what we call it). This inner wisdom, these self-realisations or learnings (that are their OWN, NO two women will ever have the same learnings), replaces the old patterns, the negative head chatter & painful emotions that were not serving them.


This is NOT a one size fits all process, as each & every woman is different, & therefore each breakthrough is completely individual, tailored to the specific woman, & specific issues.


What makes you get up in the morning?

I get up every morning because I know there are woman who are struggling & need my help…

Each day I am motivated & Inspired by the emails, texts and big HUGS, saying “I feel AMAZING!” or “You have changed my life, I don’t even know where to begin”.  “You have given my children their mother back!” & “today was the first time I in a long time I feel like me…. forever, so grateful”!

I jump out of bed every day because I know I have the tool that is saving women’s lives… saving them from depression, despair, anxiety, PTSD, grief…. that most people tell them they ‘just have to live with”….

Here are just a couple of client stories from this year. Women who wanted to feel better within themselves, who wanted more out of life, & chose to take control, to set their heart, mind & soul FREE!!

A mother of 2 young girls, who was struggling with depression, she was on stress leave from work, & some days she just couldn’t get out of bed. She was yelling at her kids all the time & everyone in the house was walking on eggshells & kids were crying all the time..

Some issues we worked on- Anxious, angry, Depressed, impatient, frustrated, scared, betrayed, confused, unhappy, helpless… 

After 24 hours I received this text. “OMG, Maria you have changed my life! I jumped out of bed this morning without even thinking about it. Kids made it out the door on time & for the first time in a long time there were no tears at all… I got out of the house & went for coffee with friends!!


A 50-year-old grandmother, fulltime counsellor, had suffered a life time of abuse, mental, physical & sexual, & had been carrying the emotional baggage for decades …

Some issues we worked on- Feeling unloved & unsupported, Fear of abandonment, Hate, Anger, I can’t trust anyone, self-sabotage, resentment, I am not enough, grief, self-doubt, anxiety…..

3 sessions & a list of 100+ issues all gone. She is now traveling around the country, living & loving life.. Passionately sharing her emotional journey, to help other women know there is a solution.


An entrepreneur in 30’sAppears Successful & confident to everyone who knows her, but she is feeling anything but….. She feels so negative about her weight, about how she looks, ”I feel disgust, loathing & repulsed by how I look”, her mind so full of negativity it stops her reaching full potential

Some issues we worked on- Not good enough, self-loathing, I feel fat, frustration, I’m a failure, dissatisfied, overwhelmed, inadequate, what am I doing wrong…..

After 3 sessions, she is feeling HAPPY, positive & empowered!! No feeling or thinking about self-image or body issues, just getting on with running her business…


A mum running from Domestic Violence – with a young child & had to move to a new & unfamiliar state.

Some issues we worked on- Trapped, stuck, Angry, frustration, heartbroken, worthless, ashamed, taken for granted, lack of confidence, feeling financially ruined, guilt, deep sadness

‘Wow, the sadness & overwhelm I was stuck in no longer exists, I am feeling in control of my life again. I am able to deal with anything life throws at me in a new & positive way’..


A business woman in 30’s – spent 10 years working up career ladder, at the point of quitting as no confidence & fear of public speaking overwhelming..  

Some issues we worked on- Anxiety, self-conscious, Fear of public speaking, Lack of confidence, intimidated, betrayal, sad, not worthy

‘Before I tried Creatrix, I was afraid of everything. My confidence was shot and I was so sensitive that a simple sideways look by the wrong person would set me on a path of self-loathing and anxiety about what that person thought of me. Now I feel completely confident and I actually enjoy life rather than being afraid of it. I feel happy, excited and eager to enjoy life. My focus has shifted away from the negative of ‘what might happen’ to the positive of ‘just imagine the possibilities’.

Really common issues that a lot of women have… BUT do NOT have to live with…

FEELING ‘not good enough’, lack of confidence, worthless, self-loathing, self-doubt, overwhelm, procrastination (symptom of other issues), Anger, sadness, dissatisfied, fear of being judged, comparing myself to others, (and so, so many more)…


What made you get into this line of work??

I spent a decade struggling with varying levels of depression, sadness, loneliness, grief… and so many other emotions.. I was in my 30’s not married, no kids & all I had ever wanted was to be married & have lots of kids.. That was the dream, the only one I had… & I didn’t understand why I couldn’t find that… Each year that went by, the sadder &  I got, & the more emotions layered on top of emotions & they weighed me down, down, down.…into a black pit of despair….

“I’m not good enough, I’m not worthy of love”,” I’m not a real woman because I don’t have kids” I have nothing to give to anyone…. resentment, hurt, loneliness, jealousy, envy, anger… There were many layers of grief….grief that I didn’t have the life I had imagined, grief that I was alone, & the grief that I may never have children was a physical pain deep inside me….

When I turned 40, I wanted to die!! Not that I could commit suicide, but I did not want to live…. It was too painful, & I could not see a way forward, through or over the pain…

Until I found Creatrix®!!! Now this was not the first modality/tool/ process that I had tried..

BUT it was the ONE that worked!! Creatrix® turned my light back ON.. It healed me at my deepest core!! I felt peace, joy, contentment…I had a confidence, self-love & self-worth, that was never in my life before Cretrix®..

To have had my own past struggle with depression & other emotional issues, and come out the other side, gives me an understanding of depth & weight of emotional baggage that can weigh women down, & I think it helps my clients to know that I have an understanding of what they are feeling & going through. And that if this tool worked for me, it will work for them TOO!!

I am passionate about helping other women live a life FREE of emotional & mental pain & struggle. I KNOW there is a better way, & I want to help women KNOW & feel that too….


What is the best advice you have ever been given?

My dad told me when I was around 12 years old, “There will always be someone who knows more than you, & is better at any given job than you are. Take the opportunity to learn from them & grow.”


What is a book you would say everyone should read?

I love ‘The seasons of Life’ by Jim Rohn


Does your business have any offers at present?

I am offering a FREE 30 minute Mindset block Identifier call up until 24th Dec. Start your New Year with a New YOU..


What is the one thing you do to change your mindset instantly?

I focus on gratitude, & quickly list 5 things right NOW, that I am grateful for!! I also love music, it can create joy & peace in my heart easily & quickly.


What do you love most about helping others?

Knowing that I am making a difference to entire families, because helping one woman to release her emotional baggage & break generational patterns, ripples out to empower her entire family.

Creatrix® is Personal development on steroids, the fast, painless & totally organic modality innovated specifically for the FEMALE MIND… with Guaranteed outcome for women who are ready to transform their lives..

Location is not an issue as I work on zoom with women from all over the world..

If you are living LESS than YOUR BEST life, YOU have the power to change that!

RETURN to WHO YOU were before the world got its hands on YOU….

Market Research!

This week I have been working with my coach to learn all about my ideal client. I wanted to share with you some vital things I have learnt doing this.

I really thought that I knew who my ideal client was but when I did this with my coach I realised that I did know her. Not only that I was making courses and packages with what I think she would want from me, and not what she would want from me.

I have realised that it is so important that we listen to our clients and hear what they need from us, what will help them not what we think will help them. We have to LISTEN! If we do not listen and hear what they want you will never be successful in business. This is a FACT!

I have also spoken to so many amazing women, I have done a mixture of marketing calls and breakthrough sessions and loved every second of it. Just getting on the phone and speaking to people when you work from behind a laptop all day has been lovely! These amazing women have now become friends and potential clients due to the help and advise I have been able to share with them. It was great to get on the call and hear from their words what they want.

Hearing what their struggles are in may area, and how it would feel for them if they could solve these issues. It was really helpful for me as a coach to make something for them that would help them, to solve those problems for them. I would really recommend everyone to do this.

If you don’t know. you can’t grow!

Now I have a clear Idea and vision of my dream client, I know who they are as soon as I speak to them,  and can now learn tools myself in order to share with them to help them.

I have created my 1:1 coaching package around this, and I will also be doing 4 courses a year for a 4 week period at a lower rate as I heard that some people do not have the money to invest the higher 1:1 price, I get it myself as I have been there.

I will be offering free webinars, Facebook lives in my VIP group, and loads more planned so I am able to help everyone that needs me.

I am still offering my 30 minute free breakthrough calls where I get on a call and discuss your content, copy and writing issues for business. If you would like to take advantage of this then please BOOK HERE

If you would like to join my free community  Words Of Wisdom – Creating Content Strategy for Aspiring Six Figure Females please JOIN HERE

Have a wonderful day.

How To Get Sales Every Time!

Welcome, so today I want to talk to you about a few things you can do in order to get clients and make a sale every time. Yes you heard me right, EVERY-TIME!

As a copywriter my job is to write in a way that is hypnotic and persuasive to get that person agreeing from the first line all the way down the text to the sale. I then get them to purchase. It is a skill I am not going to lie but once you perfect it, it is gold.

So I wanted to share some things I have learnt that can help you, this is also my first blog post for the Business Mum Network.

official blogger

The first thing and one of the most important things is to get inside the clients head, what do they want from you or your product? What problems are you solving for them? What is their pain? What does their life look like? What do they want their life to look like?

If you have no clue then you need to be asking? Put a poll out, create a questionnaire, speak to your clients and ask them why they picked you or your product. Once you know this you can direct everything to this in words and text and those clients will think you have been in their house or mind seeing exactly what they want. People love to feel special and like you care. You will never be able to put a price on giving a client that experience.

You don’t have to remind them of the pain to get them to buy change! Now this is something I recently learnt you can get someone to buy something on the outcome alone. You do not have to make them feel even worse about the situation they are in now to buy.

Example: if you are a money mindset coach and your clients are people who are in debt and want to change their relationship with money you can get them to join your coaching by selling what you can offer them and the vision of the future they want. They will feel so low if you tell them about their debt, losing their house, not being able to afford food etc they already know this so don’t make it worse. Let’s make them feel good about the future.

Personality Sells! 

If you write as you speak your personality comes across and this is a big seller, you will build client trust this way too.

Another big tip from me is directing your client, when I say this I mean in the writing you put out make it hypnotic to read. Like a really good book they will not want to put down and carry on until the end. You can do this by putting a hook or leading question at the beginning that draws their attention. Want to make £5000 in one day? that would grab your attention right?

Then back up what you just said by telling them how you can do this and why they should pick you, facts and figures back this up. If you tell them that you managed to lose 3 stone in 3 months this is a personal testimonial and is giving proof.

Then price or call here section the grand finale! The key here is to just put it simple and tell them exactly what you want them to do CALL NOW, BUY HERE!! 

Another great tip is KEEP IT SIMPLE! Do not over complicate it or use big words. Keep to the points you do not want to send clients away by talking too much, and not everyone will understand the words you use.

I hope you have found this helpful if you would like to see more of this please go to my Facebook Page where I do daily tips and Facebook Lives on similar topics.

Or if you would like to book a Free 30 minute discovery call with me to discuss your problems when it comes to writing, content, copy and sales then please Book Here.

Have a great day.

Reflecting On An Amazing Week!!

This week has been so crazy! I need to sit down and just write it all out and I have a very important lesson to share with you all at the end, so please read to the end.

The firs thing that happened was I started my first weeks coaching with the amazing Rebecca Cross. If you remember I was on Rebecca’s pod cast and Rebecca has featured in my Women Of Wisdom, if you missed them please catch up here: Rebecca Cross and My Very First Podcast Interview! So since all that happened I have built up a fabulous relationship with Rebecca she is awesome and I know is the right person for me to be working with to grow my business. This is a friendship that is going to last forever I know that much!

Then I got asked to write an article for LHM Media which is now with the publishers, which is really exciting, I always have this feeling when I get asked to do articles which is “will they like it, is it good enough” I know this is because of my past limiting beliefs, but luckily they loved it. So watch this space!

Next was possibly the most exciting thing to happen to little me from Norfolk, UK and that was being featured in an Article as a Hot New Mentionable Motivator with Tony Robbins in Fox News, ABC, NBC, CBS, KHQ and Amazon Video you can read the article Here. I am a huge Tony Robbins fan so this is so exciting, plus it means my work is good enough to be noticed and I am making an impact on people’s lives which is what I want.

I also got interviewed for a blog with the lovely Christie Adams, which is where you can find out a little more about me please take a look Here.

Then to top it all off I got asked to be an official blogger for Business Mum Network, which means that I can help fellow mums in business with their motivation, writing, content and other business needs via my blog. I also went live in their Facebook group to give some training on content and how to keep creating good content which was fab.

official blogger

I know this week is just the start of amazing things to come for me and my business.

So the lesson or lessons I wanted to share with you today is….

No matter what people say about you, what people think of you, or what they tell you, if you believe in you and tell yourself you can do it you will always do it. Work hard, get your head down and focus on what you love, what makes you happy. You will be fine!

I was someone who never did well at school, in fact I was predicted U’s in most subjects, I got 10 GCSE’s grades E and above (4 C’s, 5 D’s and 1 E). I went to art school and got a diploma in fine art. I have officially got every job I have interviewed for, and last year I became a qualified life coach with a pass grade of Distinction. That course included Counselling, Psycho analysis, NLP and CBT, It was hard work but I was determined to pass it. So I did!

Now I am set to build a six figure business by December 2018.

How is this possible? because I made a promise to myself that I will do it, I will help women across the globe to be empowered and inspired. I will not give up, I also found my passion and what I am good at. When passion, meets purpose you can not go wrong!

It is also really important to reflect on the stuff that happens in business, celebrate the wins and develop on the losses. This will motivate you and drive you further.

So what could you do today to start living your purpose?

Have a wonderful day.

4 Tips for getting more sales from content!

As a copywriter I have learnt a few things in my time, especially when it comes to making mistakes when it comes to a sales posts. Some of the things I have put out there in the past have actually made me cringe. Facebook Time Hop is not my friend!

So today I wanted to share some tips with you that you can implement in your business today to start making a change. This will help you stand out, get clients, and make those all important sales.

1. Personality! 

This is so important and something that can easily get overlooked. We like to remain professional and come across as the expert in our field (there is nothing wrong with that) what we do miss is that we can sound like a robot and forget to show our personality!

People buy you! You will always have clients if you are you!

2. Read back over what you write! 

Every time I write something I go back and check it over and read it OUT LOUD! This helps in a few areas; you get to hear how it sounds to someone else reading it, you will get to notice where there should be full stops, or other punctuation. This also helps to see if your personality is coming through. Does what you write actually sound like something you would say?

3. Keep it simple! 

Do not write massive complicated jargon! This confuses the hell out of people, If I am looking to lose weight and someone starts talking to me about how my glucose levels and Hypertension, Cardiology etc,etc (I bet you got bored reading that). I fully get that you love what you do; but the people you are talking to want facts, figures, easy to understand words and know what they will get from your service.  Do not lose them by trying too hard… again just be you!

4. Tell them what to do! 

If you are doing a post to get people to book a call you need to literally type BOOK HERE!

People love to be told step by step what to do when they look at something, if there is no call to action you will simply lose them. Can you imagine if you have made a great sales post the client is reading it and nodding along the whole time then they get to the end and there is nothing… you will lose sales. Buy Here, Book Here etc will get them taking that next step.

I hope you have found these helpful? If you would like to discuss your own copy and sales issues further I have opened up my diary for 30 minute breakthrough calls. Where I will help you with your blocks, or issues on the phone there and then, you can BOOK HERE.

I am a copy and content coach for women in business, I help them overcome their blocks when it comes to writing in business, I help them find their words and share them with the world reaching their dream clients and making sales. I have 5 spots available to work with myself on a 1:1 basis, my coaching is a 12 month rolling programme so you have my professional support all the way.

Have a great Day.

Why investing in yourself is important!

I won’t lie it took me a while to come round to this idea.

Maybe it was because of my mental health, self-doubt or indeed my money blocks but when I heard people talking about investing in themselves I did not get it. So you are going to pay £2,000 for someone to tell you what you need in your life? That is crazy!

This was until I hit rock bottom and needed help, I officially ran out of resources to help me, the books on the shelf where not cutting it. I needed a coach!

I never realised it but I had already been investing in myself, I paid for those books. I had made a commitment to do a course that all involved investing in myself. These courses and books where going to make me a better person, help me get closer to my dream life.

When I hired my first coach it was £300 for a 8 week course, now I work with coaches and am a coach myself I know this is not a huge amount as far as investing goes. Some coaches I know pay £40,000 for their coaching, one day Michele, one day!

As someone who was in debt and had no income finding and investing in that £300 was not fun, or easy! However, the coaching I got and the course was what I needed and I got more than the £300 back.

I do get how scary it can be and how sometimes no matter what you do you can not find that money to invest, but if you do not invest in yourself and your growth can you really expect anyone to pay you to help themselves? I also know that if you really want it you will be able to find ways to do it, that is another blog post on it’s own.

This is my logic when it comes to making an investment in myself; I do not know everything as much as I like to think that I am intelligent and can do a lot of things, fact is I do not know everything!

If I put money in to grow, I will be learning skills I can pass on to my clients and make myself better. I can also then increase my rates, and earn more. We all want that right?

Then there is the simple fact that if I do not walk the walk, how can I expect my clients to invest in me if I can’t or won’t do it myself. This one just does not make sense!

It also pays to just believe in yourself, that is the biggest investment you will ever make!

So let me ask you this, can you afford to invest in yourself today? What area would you invest in? Even if it is just a new book you can learn from that is still an investment.

Have a wonderful day.

  1. Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?

Hi, I am Nicola Parker and I created Headstrong Fitness and I am from Manchester.

  1. What is your business about?

Ever felt like despite it all that you were doing well. You were on the right path, your life was heading in the right direction? Then BAM!

This was me. Despite a difficult breakup from my mentally abusive and controlling ex I was coping. I was learning to be a single mum to three young children. I got myself to college and was now in my third year of uni studying law. I was doing damn good at it too. I had also met a new partner. On paper, I had it all, sort of.

But then it all came to a head. I’d let things build up for years. Many many years. And now I found myself in hospital after a serious suicide attempt. How had this happened? Have you ever felt like your life just spiralled out of control and you couldn’t even see it happening?

I’d heard of depression and being mentally unwell. But that was an excuse for serial killers, right? WRONG! I was suddenly dealing with an illness that was so highly stigmatised and something I didn’t want to be part of.

I had a choice. I could let it consume me. Or I could figure out what is going on and how best to deal with it. Yes, I had my moping and wallowing and I think that is needed. But then my Dr kept telling me about exercise and how helpful it would be. It took me a while but eventually I listened to him.

So, to cut a long story short. I quit university, trained as a personal trainer and embarked on a long and never-ending journey of self-development and mindset work.

I am now a mental health personal trainer and I help others like myself with mental illnesses to become stronger than their mind. I run a mental health support group where daily as a tribe of like-minded women we come together to become who we truly are meant and want to be. We uplift and support each other. It’s not like the typical mental health groups on Facebook. We work together at improving our mental health. I combine all my expertise such as; counsellor, mindset coach and qualified personal trainer to bring a holistic approach to our mental health and bridge the gap the NHS leaves behind. I also bring in guest experts too and together we conquer so many imperative topics that will overall help us all in becoming stronger than the mind.

  1. What made you get into this line of business?

My own personal battles with mental health.

  1. What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?

My power routine would consist of:

Immediately write in my gratitude journal which I have at my bed side.

Meditate before getting out of bed (just a short 5-10 min one)

Exercise – to get my happy hormones pumping for the day ahead.

  1. What is the best advice you have ever been given?

Its ok not to be ok.

  1. What is a book you would say everyone must read?

Awaken The Giant Within by Tony Robbins

  1. Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?

At the moment we ae ready for the Self Esteem Workshop that starts on the 10th September 2018. It’s a one-off investment of £30 to finally get to grips on the self-esteem that has been holding you back. I have brought in a guest expert for this workshop too, so you are getting double trouble!

  1. What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?

A workout if I can. If not I go to my happy place, I think of happy memories or people who make me happy. For me, it’s a memory with my children.

  1. What do you love most about helping others?

It helps me to feel like I have a purpose in my life. It gives me a sense of achievement and that all my pain and suffering hasn’t been for nothing, that there is a positive outcome that can come from it.
