"Mary and I met at a time when I needed her and I am very glad that we did. With her help I have been able to let go of issues from my past that I thought I had already dealt with. It was a pleasure talking with her every week and getting her wisdom, expertise, support and love. I know I now have the tools I can use for the rest of my life if ever I need to. I really wish I had recorded the sessions so I could listen back and learn even more from Mary, she was awesome. "
Kathryn Louise, Melbourne, Australia
"Mary is a gifted coach. She grasps the essence or dynamics of a situation and responds with wisdom and love. She draws from a large reservoir of experience and knowledge, including the work of Katherine Woodward Thomas on ‘Conscious Uncoupling’ and ‘Feminine Power’. She operates from the underlying belief that life is good and that we all deserve to love and be loved. She has been exceptionally helpful to me and generous. I highly recommend Mary."
Wendy, New Brunswick, Canada
"Mary, thank you so much for guiding me through this deep transformation for me. This is a first for me in my life. I have had so many unconscious completions in my past with old friends, business partners, etc. I now know that I have forever changed this pattern and I have a new template for how beautiful an uncoupling can be. Sending you much love and appreciation."
"The best I can say for myself when I came into coaching with Mary was that I was ambivalent. I didn’t really have the energy to move forward with my life. I lacked direction and didn’t think I had anywhere to go career-wise. Truth is I’d lost confidence in myself. Mary helped me to see all the possibilities for my life. That it was all in front of me. I’m now using my skills in a whole new way and building new ones to boot. I’m excited about my future. I’m so grateful to Mary and can’t say enough about her skills as a coach."
James B., Brisbane, Australia
"I am so grateful to Mary for assisting me with a recent grievance I had with a local community agency. I engaged Mary to ‘do her magic’ and professionally explore all the issues so that we (the agency and myself) could find common areas of agreement and work out a way forward while avoiding the stress of a formal grievance procedure. The coaching Mary provided to me, reassured me, so that we (the agency and myself) could build rapport and trust. Mary’s guidance and calming reassurance greatly alleviated any anxiety I had. She helped us to achieve a CLEAR SPACE where could I ask questions and where we all could engage in dialogue. Mary’s professional ability to paraphrase and clarify the issues helped us all to communicate more respectfully and openly. With Mary’s guidance, we achieved a mutually acceptable outcome."

"As a result of doing the Conscious Uncoupling program with Mary, I’m more aware of my patterns in previous relationships and have felt a shift toward thinking about previous relationship and partner with more positivity. As a coach Mary is terrific! She is clearly an experienced and highly professional coach, who is passionate about this work. I highly recommend Mary as a Conscious Uncoupling Coach as I know she can make a difference too many!"
Adrienne S., Toronto, Canada
"Mary earned my trust by honoring my WHOLE experience and that created safety for me. I was able to connect more deeply with fragmented parts of myself because of Mary's ability to co-create trust and safety. I will be bringing in the benefits of the uncoupling ritual for some time to come. Amazing! This allowed me to begin an integration process that is now really blooming. Mary demonstrated to me her faith in the work and the successful results she was herself living. I feel blessed to be the recipient of great wisdom from someone who has lived a full life and is passing on the tried and true with spunk, humor and love. I have been talking to my friends and family about the positive experience I am having still and the transformative power of Conscious Uncoupling. Love, gratitude and appreciation to Katherine Woodward Thomas and Mary Rizk."

"The best thing about doing the Calling in “The One” coaching with Mary is that I’ve come to believe in love again and that I was worthy of love and able to be loved for who I am. I’ve lost that desperation I felt before that my life would be without love. I know now that I am magnetic to love and I will attract a worthy partner. I appreciate all that Mary did. She guided me safely through the course. I’ll never be able to say enough about what she did for me."
Donna, Alberta Canada
"With Mary, I felt safe, heard and understood. She really listened. At the time I had a lot of fears and I now understand the reasons behind them and I’ve learned how to handle them. This has led me to taking more risks both in my career and socially. Mary was very professional. All goals for our coaching were met and her time management was great. She did more than what I expected. This is one of the best things I’ve done for myself. I would not be able to discover half of what Mary did by just reading the Calling in “The One” book. This coaching and course really came to me at the right time in my life. I feel very blessed to have been exposed to this program. I want to add that I’ve met my beloved. He is just so awesome. He is everything I want in a guy and more."
Jane H., New York
"Calling in “The One” has given me an inner structure, form and guidance which I never had before. This has given me a perspective which has changed the way I look at life and relationships. Mary, you are a great Calling in “The One” Coach. I really felt your intuition and transparency and your full presence going through the process. Whatever I was experiencing I felt validated by you and your stand with me gave me strength in moments of ambivalence and uncertainty. Thank you very much for your unique gift and for truly being with me in this experience."
Carmel, Personal Assistant, Sydney
"I love Mary – she is awesome!!! One of the most important things Mary did to create a sense of safety was to totally empathize with me. I was so glad to hear that it was okay that I didn’t want my One to be just anybody. She helped me to relax. The anxiety I was feeling about finding love has melted away and I am open to love. I know my own value now and realize I just have to be myself! As a coach, Mary was just so good at covering everything for each session while staying totally engaged and very relatable. We also laughed a lot. She was organized but spontaneous at the same time! She was totally professional and also human and connected at the same time."
Heather, New York
"The process of mindfully and consciously uncoupling is radically evolutionary work! Katherine has created a way for us to change the form of our relationships while keeping the love intact. This process preserves and protects the wellbeing of our children and ensures that we are empowered to move forward to create even greater levels of love and happiness in our lives and in our world."

"Calling in “The One” has been nothing short of a miracle for me. The men I’ve been attracting into my life are completely different than the men I’ve ever dated. They are kind, considerate and looking for a long-term partner. I am deeply grateful for all that I have learned and tell all my friends not to miss this experience."
