About Mariette

If there was one thing to say about me, I would say ‘I am always late in life’. Not deliberately, but that is how my life panned out. I finished my PhD when I was 28, met the love of my life when I was 37 had my first baby at 40 and my second at 44. Got married for the first time at 42 and knew something magical was happening when I started training as a psycho therapist. I actually found my purpose at the age of 58.

Maybe that is why I am never in a hurry?

After my first book ‘From Victim to Victor – Narcissism Survival Guide’ was launched, I was inundated with reactions from people who knew something wasn’t right in their lives and through my press stories and my book they understood that they were targets and victims of narcissistic abuse. The story of my life is the story of many others. If only I had known… It took me 55 years to understand that my mother was a narcissist and I have made it my mission to educate people on NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) and help victims to step away from the abuse and become a victor. Before they are 55.

I started my career as a nurse, but moved away from that vocation to go to university and learn more about the psychology of language. After my PhD I worked in the IT industry in PR roles. Even had my own PR agency for a few years. When I moved to the UK for the man, who is now the father of 2 boys, I worked for a management consultancy firm on international PR projects for HP.

I trained as a psychotherapist and when I finished my training I not only built a private practice, I also started to teach at colleges and universities in London. After a decade, I trained at the Coaching Academy and changed my focus from therapy to coaching. The coaching approach, which is aimed at achieving changes through insights and actions suits my personality better than the therapy approach.

My corporate experiences make it easy to understand the challenges and pressures of professionals, such as work-life balance, Imposter Syndrome and confidence and stress issues. My childhood experiences make it easy to empathise and understand personal problems, such as anxiety, relationships, narcissism, and low self-esteem.
