Your stress is natural and the pressure is real.

If your mind is full & busy, your tolerance is wearing thin, your nerves are shot and you are yearning for some peace, clarity & calm, welcome, you’ve arrived, you are in the right place.

Don’t let the name deceive you, we’re not monks, we're real people living in the real world, with lives that come with all the challenges of being in a relationship, earning a living, raising a family, finding work/life balance and managing health & wellbeing.

The problem is that most of us have never been taught how to recognise the source of our stress, or our difficult feelings, let alone talk about it or deal with it in a healthy way. Instead, we turn to over-committing at work; social media; using food & or alcohol, drugs, online shopping, and binging of any kind, to distract ourselves and numb the discomfort which: erodes our sense of engagement and aliveness; compromising our relationships, making us sick and modelling unhealthy behaviours to our kids.

What happens when you are stressed:

Your nervous system is on high alert and you become:

  • overly stressed/reactive/defensive;
  • overly avoidant,
  • overly dutiful - people pleasing,
  • or numbed out and in denial.

You don't know where to start to make change, what to do differently let alone how to do it.

That’s why we do things a bit differently here at Turn UP Your Zen.  

Through a combination of therapy, meditation & coaching we bring you back home to yourself and your true nature, without any dogma or hype. Scientifically backed, proven with time.

I was looking for counselling to help with food and diet related issues because I wasn’t eating well, unable to lose weight, feeling bad about myself, which was making me feel more down and comforting myself with food... and so the vicious cycle continued!

My relationship was ending and it was a difficult time for me.

Since working with Tania, I have a deeper sense of self love which has improved my thoughts towards my body, food & leftovers. I’m now in control of my food, rather than it being in control of me.

Tania goes above and beyond, genuinely caring for her clients. It has been a pleasure to work with her.



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.
