Learn more about me
My name is Tanya and I was born and raised in Cornwall, England, surrounded by beautiful beaches. I’ve lived here my entire life, apart from six and half years, which we spent in Cyprus and where our daughter was born. Spending time overseas gave me a really good insight into different cultures (there were lots of nationalities in Cyprus) and what it’s like being the ‘outsider’ - the immigrant.
But home is where the pasties are! (A local delicacy.)
My husband and I have been together for nearly 30 years and married for over half of that time. We met in the pub I was working in at the time and have been inseparable since. Our daughter came along while we were living in Cyprus and we had been together for 20 years. Everyone thinks that getting pregnant is easy. Well not for me! It took me over 4 years to conceive. Lots of research and trying!
I have been in the hair and beauty industry for over 27 years, so you could say that I’ve been listening to people and helping them feel better about themselves from behind the chair for a very long time. Everyone knows that your hairdresser is your ‘counsellor’ and confidante!
Becoming a life coach has been a natural progression in my career, as helping my clients with their mindset and wellbeing, and decision making, became very important to me. Going back to the salon after the pandemic it became very clear that many people had developed a negative mindset and wanted more from life. They had lost their purpose and needed direction. It became clear to me that I could help and support people in making the necessary changes to shift their mindset.
As I had received coaching myself and undergone lots of personal development during the lockdowns, I became passionate in sharing this life changing experience with others.
I have reached a time in my life where I am now facing the menopause, which is a subject that doesn’t really get spoken about. We learn about periods and having babies, but no-one tells us what happens next. We are just expected to get on with it! As well as helping women gain a positive mindset and improve their sense of well being, I want to help those who are also entering this phase of their life and let them know that they are not alone, and I am here to support them.
Five facts about me…….
I am obsessed with the law of attraction and manifestation, and all things holistic and alternative (crystals, aromatherapy, etc.)
I am honest, trustworthy and reliable (I can’t lie for toffee! I get hot and sweaty and my heart races!)
Cold-water swimming is my therapy (If you haven’t tried it, you really should!)
I try to be as green and environmentally friendly as possible (We should all try to do what we can)
I love cats! (Big ones, little ones, love ‘em all)
