Work with Tess...

MASTER THERAPEUTIC COACH
CREATIVE SOLUTIONS
SUSTAINABLE CHANGE

Fears & shame immobilize us on many levels - I approach growth from the physical, behavioural, mental, spiritual & emotional levels so that the changes you make with me are Sustainable & you don't have to rely on a coach or therapist to get you through your life.

By growing compassionate awareness &  acceptance, I help you melt the fear-bond & build self-trust.  In the process, we can heal several aspects of resistance by offering what you have been lacking.  All along the way, working only toward YOUR goals & within YOUR comfort level. 

My multi-disciplinary approach gives you the tools to change what hasn't been working, notice what HAS been working, trust in your unique purpose & value who you already are.

my EXPERTISE:

it's personal

It's not only our thoughts - our SUBCONSCIOUS programming forms the language to create our healing & suffering.  We have the power to change that language; we just need to be taught HOW.  I invested 20 years of study & practice to support others ability to gain freedom.  My expertise provides the strategy & my personal story drives the passion.  

remove what doesn't serve

Recently, the mental wellness world filled with 'professionals' who offer tricks that don't support lasting change.  I teach a research-based, custom plan & together, we create steps you can stick to; all of which builds a foundation that supports long-term healing, emotional & spiritual shifts.

evidence-based

2 decades of rigorous research & higher education produced a premium coaching practice that yields LASTING patterns of change - mentally, emotionally & spiritually.  The methods I teach my clients are the ones I taught myself, reducing old habits & creating freedom.

Done With You

Imagine yourself 10 years from now.  You are able to handle what comes your way in life: not perfect, not faking it, just pure self-acceptance & self-grace.  After three decades of rigorous higher education, research & a crap-load of grit, I designed a system that changed my thought patterns forever.  That is the system I  teach my incredible clients.

do-it yourself with my compliments

Your time is precious, but when it comes to your thoughts, you haven't been taught how to use your time wisely.  Dive into this guide to find ways that will effectively & efficiently help you unravel some of the thoughts that have been keeping you small & causing you such discomfort & exhaustion.

learn with me

Bringing a no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners approach to Psychology - it's about time we got unafraid to talk. About what scares us & what ignites us. About the parts of us we want no one to see. It's time we allowed the time to get to know our OWN selves - learning what we love, facing what we don't want & embracing both without all the self-doubt & judgement.

You Are Not Alone.  We are all trying our best to manage what the world hands us.  We are all caught off guard by life's curveballs & few of us are instructed on what to do about it.

Some of the healing on offer does not equip you to manage your thoughts & feelings in a doable, lasting way.  There are enough short-term solutions & I don't waste my time or yours by being another one of those voices in the healing crowd.  I lean on my background in Research Psychology to level data that arms you with Lasting Change.  We just don't have time for anything less - & you deserve SO MUCH MORE.
