Tania Burgess, Life Coach & Counsellor

Understand difficult feelings & develop your emotional intelligence.

 Life by its very nature is challenging, but that doesn’t mean it has to be difficult. Gain clarity about what you are experiencing and why, so you can be clear on what you need to do.

Creating a life, developing a career, nurturing healthy social, professional and personal relationships, as well as raising a family are amongst the greatest challenges we experience throughout our lifetime.

Feeling relaxed, confident and capable in the face of it all makes the ups and downs easier and more enjoyable to experience.

Counselling is a therapy that provides an opportunity to talk to a trained therapist, who will listen and help you to deal with emotional issues in a confidential, safe and non-judgmental environment

Tania Burgess, Accredited Life and Certified Wellness Coach utilises the following evidence-based, person-centred approaches to provide empathy, understanding and validation during counselling and therapy sessions.

One to one coaching


I found Tania when I was looking for an introduction to meditation course, to calm my overloaded mind.  

As well as meditation, I did yoga and one to one coaching with Tania.

Being able to self-calm instantly has been an amazing tool and something I continue to use daily. 

The coaching opened up new ways of thinking.  It brought clarity to various issues I was facing, which has helped me make some very important decisions that impacted my future.

Tania is easy to talk to and makes you feel very nurtured.

I highly recommend her services. She's knowledgeable in a myriad of fields, drawing on all her experience to provide the best outcomes for her clients.

One to one coaching


I was grieving the loss of my father and it was affecting me badly. I can see now that I was depressed, the world was grey and I was sad all the time.  When I searched google and found Tania, I knew I had found the right person, my right person. Tania helped me overcome my grief with private yoga, coaching and meditation.  

With these three elements we went deep into healing.  It was a great combination.  I had a counsellor and business coach at the time, but it just wasn’t helping.  It was in our third session I connected my grief with the trauma I had experienced as a child from my mother and father’s toxic and sometimes violent relationship.  It was then I was able to let go the pain.  It was hard, but it was also really beautiful.I have worked with Tania on my own relationship and continue to let go of the drama and being a victim. I feel much happier now because I choose to be free from the anger and the sadness.  Tania taught me how to do that.  

She is very understanding, patient and wise.  There is absolutely no judgement, which makes me feel safe to share everything, even things that I might feel embarrassed or ashamed of.  She is skilled at connecting the things that I couldn’t see.  I felt I could share anything with her, which was not the case with other professionals I had worked with.Things are totally different now, like a beautiful flower has bloomed.  I feel light and free because there is so much to be happy about.

    Counselling may be short-term or long-term, depending on your individual needs and sometimes leads to life coaching if that feels right for you as a next step. 

    It takes courage to be honest about how you think, feel & behave.  The courage comes when you're ready to let go of what's making you miserable; commit, be real & not only explore how to do things differently, but implement and get feedback.

    One to one coaching


    I first met Tania during wellbeing sessions held at my place of work.

    This laid the groundwork for working with her one to one, to improve my thought processing and make positive changes in my life. 

    Working with her has led to many changes, including a new job that increased my income and met the needs of my family.  I developed my own business and started to believe in myself.   But what has changed specifically is how I see myself and how I relate to others. I’m now aware of my personality traits that influence my judgement of self. 

    I now see the internalised process and assumptions that have limited my professional and personal life.  

    I'm learning to choose what is the right path for me rather than passively allowing others to dictate my path and I've made positive changes to ensure I continue maintaining my happiness at work and at home.

    Tania is my mentor and a guiding light. 

    Each session is thought provoking, delivered with kindness and caring, bringing me back to being accountable for my own thoughts and actions. I can honestly say, she’s better than any other counsellor I’ve ever had.

    I'm happier


    I was experiencing a lot of anxiety about work. I wasn't sleeping and my reduced confidence was impacting other areas of my life as well. 
    Since working with Tania, I’m a lot calmer and more focused, I’m happier and I feel like I can take on the challenges that come up. 

    I’ve learned how to stop my anxiety from creeping in by managing my thought process better. The changes have meant I’m approaching new projects and leadership opportunities at work that I couldn't have imagined taking on before working with Tania.  
    My friends & family have also commented that I’m coming across more positively.
    Tania creates a comfortable environment and gives guidance, in manageable steps. She is just like talking to a great friend.
    I recommend working with Tania to anyone suffering from anxiety and needing a little guidance.

    Overcome Emotions


    I started working with Tania because I needed help with my relationship. It was making me sad every day. She’s helped me learn to deal with my emotions better and overcome situations differently.

    She’s is a great lady and a mum, so she could understand where my partner and I where both coming from and the pressure of having a toddler. My partner has found it really valuable for work/career as well as parenting. Her relaxed style has helped us a lot and I’ve enjoyed it. I have less stress and fewer worries and a happier life.”
