The Way We Are


At times, the way we are can madden us, our minds repeatedly returning to anxious, painful or critical thoughts. It can feel as though we are getting nowhere, or, more frustratingly, that we get in our own way, stumbling against familiar issues and destructive behaviours. We can appear to ourselves like outsiders, like there is nowhere that we belong and as if we are less than who we hoped we’d be. Issues emerge of perfectionism, anger, despair, lack of confidence – we understand that self-worth is important, but how do we attain it? Especially in a world which won’t validate us. Our attention may turn inwards, but it’s rarely a kind attention.


All these things and more can deplete us, until the darkness of the world feels like it becomes us.


If any of this sounds familiar to you, you are so welcome here.

Change the architecture of your inner landscape

The things which subliminally drive us, the internal obstacles that block our paths, and the restorative ways in which we can return to our freest, lightest and most authentic selves, is where my focus as a coach lies.

About Me


I began with an embodied actor’s training, then moved to writing

for theatre, qualifying along the way in teaching yoga, and in

Psychotherapy and Counselling, and eventually in Coaching Psychology.


I combine these aggregate skills and training in my practice, providing discrete, unafraid coaching, and specializing in Internal Family Systems (IFS). Once safety is established, together we can navigate through and around whichever parts of your system are holding you back.

When someone really hears you without passing judgment on you, without trying to take responsibility for you, without trying to mould

you, it feels damn good…


The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change

she is very special"

"Tanya has a truly warm and intuitive way of working and being present with me, even online, while also helping me hold myself accountable. I am grateful that she held a space for me so wisely and compassionately in which I could be present and integrate how I’ve come to where I am with where I want to see my future! Thank you!"

"I immediately felt safe and comfortable with Tanya. She gently guided me to deep insights about myself that I have not gotten to in working with traditional therapists. I was able to uncover some very young parts of myself that have led to amazing healing"

"Dear Tanya,


Rocket fuel!"

"Working with Tanya was a helpful and illuminating experience. She brought so much creativity and insight to our sessions. She is an active and generous listener who opened my eyes to new ways of thinking at a moment when it felt like the path was narrowing. Our time together allowed me to learn more about myself, feel challenged and find my way back to my creative practice. I wholeheartedly recommend working with her"

"Tanya is a truly talented coach. She was a perfect fit for me and what I needed and helped lead me into some really insightful and game-changing revelations around my values and perspectives. Our work together was often confronting (as it should be) but always kind. I appreciated her sensitivity, fun and warmth in our coaching journey together"
