Creative & Self-Compassion

Focused Therapeutic Coaching

for Parents, Carers &




Hi I’m Tanja

I’m on a life mission to empower people like you to thrive so you can overcome unnecessary anxiety, lack of self-belief, compassion fatigue, overwhelm, trauma and exhaustion and realise your full potential. Nurturing confidence, energy, clarity, purpose, joy, abundance, health, good relationships and self-love.

I’m a qualified Integrative Counsellor, Hypnotherapist, NLP Life Coach & Mindful Self-Compassion Facilitator. I am also a published author with Jessica Kingsley Publishers.  I work with clients from the age of 16 upwards through 1:1 and therapeutic group work in person and virtually. My passion for growth, recovery from trauma and community has led me to develop and deliver change-making courses, training and self-care retreats. My therapy room is based in the heart of the community in Chester and for those who are unable to attend in person, I offer online sessions. 

As a Counsellor and Community builder I am also passionate about supporting other leaders to create and launch online and offline courses to their communities so that they can become financially sustainable and bring their gifts to the world. 

I believe that we all have the power within us to change and sometimes we need a little nudge, a safe space and some guidance to help us!


As a Heart-Powered Giver, you help others to be the best that they can be…

Heart-Powered Givers and leaders are everywhere in plain sight. From the community leader who holds space for others, to the woman who brings moms together to drink coffee and talk about motherhood to the therapist who is exhausted and doing her best to work while taking care of her teen son who is struggling with anxiety.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a parent, a community builder, leader or counsellor, the one thing that you have in common is that you are sharing your heart, your thoughts, your time and your energy to help others to be the best that they can be. Caring for others while not finding balance and offering healing to ourselves can sometimes leave us experiencing burn out, lack of joy, anxiety, vicarious trauma, toxic relationships, compassion fatigue and a loss of self-belief. In my monthly messages by email, we explore compassionate, mindful and nurturing ways to recover from burn out, trauma, unnecessary anxiety, low confidence and lack of self-esteem!

Empowering Tools


I have been creating online and offline courses for just over ten years. I’ve trained more than eleven thousand people globally and have built two brands around Wellbeing, Creative Mindfulness and other therapeutic models. 

In this section I share my courses with you. If you are interested in working with me to create and launch your own courses, visit my “work with me” page.
