Maria Landon was a teenage prostitute with a drink and drugs habit when she became pregnant with her first child. The arrival of the baby changed everything and, having been through counselling to help deal with her past, she then began to teach personal development. Her aim is to help people who have been taught as children to think that they are worthless, a technique her father used to keep her in his power. She is now the mother of two sons aged 19 and 22.
