Being stuck sucks. When your mind spins the same old crap over and over again:

“WTF is wrong with me?”

“Why can’t I do it?”

“Why am I so lazy and unmotivated?”

“Why haven’t I achieved it yet?”

“Why do I keep doing this to myself?!”

“How will I ever organise my life, get out of this rut and live a life that feels right for me, easy, and free?”

The people who inspire you twisting a knife in your guts with every success they conquer.

“Why am I so lethargic? Why aren’t I winning too?”


Then the excuses start. The blaming. The anger and denying.

“I don’t have the time and money they have.”

“I’m just not that strong or smart enough.”

“I just don’t have the energy, willpower and self-discipline.”

“I just can’t get motivated - I don’t have any self-control!”

“I don’t have the luxury of putting myself first.”


Sometimes you pick yourself up and get out of your self-loathing. Searching for answers you find:

“The 7 habits of highly successful people."

"10 tips for a better you.”

“How to get motivated in 15 steps.”

“11 powerful ways to become the best version of yourself.”

“Discover the power of ….”

Ugh! Someone please stick my head in the toilet and flush.

Maike has worked with


The thing is: You read it all.


Sure - every little advice makes sense. It’s simple, you get it. I mean, you’ne not completely stupid! You even try some of it for a while.


But let’s be honest: It doesn’t change a f*cking thing!


It doesn’t even put the slightest dent in it! It’s All. Just. Talk. Those bits of advice are nothing more than a nice-to-have when your life is already perfect.


Not for someone like you. You need someone who GETS you.


Who picks you up from the shitty place you’re in. Someone who has the FULL answer. The COMPLETE package! EVERYTHING there is to know and master about creating REAL CHANGE. Someone who KNOWS how to turn YOUR story around.


Shit that WORKS. Someone to hold your hand.


And for long enough for you to BECOME the change, without the constant doubts, setbacks and feeling crap about yourself. Without waking up shit, having a shit day, and going to bed feeling shit. Without the eat-sleep-zombie-repeat.


Are you ready to leave that crappy place behind and turn your story around?

If you really want to create change in your life you need more than just an inspiring quote, motivational blog post or bestselling self-help book.


You need


  • The real deal. The FULL PACKAGE. Not just one piece of the puzzle. A proper fix. Once and for all.

  • To understand what REALLY makes you tick and how to take back CONTROL of your life. Whether you want to get motivated to exercise and get fit, lose weight, get your life under control, find your purpose, get more energy, or become an entrepreneur and make money from the comfort of your home.

  • To get on top of your self-sabotaging behaviours and learn how to break out of the cycle you’re stuck in.

  • To start doing things differently, so you can create a different reality - dare I say a bloody awesome one, in which you’re confident, healthy, happy and successful. One in which you THRIVE. One in which others look at YOU and want to achieve that, too.

  • To build strategies to navigate your failures and get back up - reliably, every single time.

  • Support mechanisms to keep you going until it sticks and you're ready to chase all those dreams on your own.

I built the Fresh Start program because I know what it is like to feel lost and confused while watching others succeed.


I've always been fascinated by the fact that some people thrive, while others go from one hurdle to the next. It's what drove me to study Psychology, complete a Doctorate in behaviour change science, spent years advancing the science about how people can best adapt life changes they desire, and eventually became an expert in self-leadership.


The crazy thing is: All the advice out there is great! All the books on how to adopt a growth mindset, how to cultivate grit, how to train your willpower, taking tiny steps, atomic habits, change when change is hard, foster your self-compassion, become a happy you, learn the high 5 habit, stop chasing happy, harness the power of now...THE  LIST IS ENDLESS!


There are 2 indeed:


1) Either, they are far from evidence-based, meaning you may as well as ask your friend's cousin's gipsy witch to lay her tarot cards for you all while raising your energy levels to vibe with the warrior goddess soul of the universe.

2) Or, they’re great, but only offer one tiny piece of the puzzle you need to put together to change your behaviour effectively and turn your life around!

The reality is: Human behaviour change is bloody hard and life can be a real bitch!


If you want to get on top of yourself and your life, you need the complete package of everything we know to date about the psychology of behaviour change, about the science of creating REAL happiness, and about how to master and lead yourself!


And that’s exactly why I created the FRESH START Program: To put ALL the knowledge, strategies and tools you need to create that change in your life that you need and deserve!


In other words, to take you from your rut to your peak. And keep you there.

"For someone who suffers a degree of imposter syndrome I have undertaken so many self-development courses. I also have the core value of ‘credibility’ and this is why I chose Dr Maike’s course. I can unequivocally say that this course is by far one of the best I have done (and there are heaps). The content was professional and credible as well as time balanced and not too overwhelming. I have utmost confidence that I will use the learnings from the fresh start program in everything I do moving forward even beyond my current goal. I can’t thank Dr Maike enough, this was a hugely valuable course that I would take again and recommend to anyone wanting to foster positive change and realise their potential."

Felicity, Tauranga

"Maike's style is super engaging. She has the ability to relay complex topics simply, and uses exercises that made the concepts easy to implement. I couldn't recommend Maike more highly."

Petra, Brisbane

"Absolutely recommend Maike's workshops. Her knowledge in self-leadership is undeniable and the tools and strategies she shares are life changing. Thank you, Maike, for sharing your grit, loving energy, and commitment through everything you do."

Lina, Newmarket

"I had the opportunity to be part of one of Maike's self-leadership workshops. I went without knowing what to expect and little did I know back then that it was the start of a very deep personal transformation. Maike gives you that confidence we all need, keeping you grounded and realistic. During coaching sessions, she's super approachable and open to discuss without judgement. I can't recommend this course enough, no matter what stage of your life you're at. It's so rewarding and a great tool to grow as an individual."

Diana, Herston
