About me...

Hi! My name is Tanya and I am an experienced, qualified coach. I set up my practice in 2005, and it's called Boost You. I relish the opportunity of coaching people to explore what they really want, and ultimately flourish and thrive by making the most of their potential.


I help you gain new insights and perspectives and we work together so that you reach your personal, career or organisational goals and live a more joyful and fulfilling life.

If you'd like to read a little more about me and why I love my life, then see my bio below.

What's probably more relevant to you however, is why a coaching relationship with me can work for you.

  • I listen to you, and make no judgements

  • You get results; you'll look back and be amazed at how far you've come

  • I want you to succeed and to enjoy life and work, and to feel good about what you're doing. I am here to support you in your endeavours because I really believe you can do and be what you set your mind to do

  • I've worked in a host of creative and other pressurised environments for many years and can relate and support you through both personal and work experiences

  • I'm affordable and flexible

  • I am warm, personable and there for you


I spent more than 15 years in advertising and marketing, based in London. During that time, I came to appreciate how motivating, encouraging and nurturing people to be the best they could be, in all areas of their life, had great impact on not only their productivity but also their personal lives too. As I really began to stretch and grow personally myself, taking a number of different personal development courses over the years, my desire for change also grew.

So then in 1998, despite an excellent career and great social life, both my husband and I left our respective jobs, sold up and moved to Costa Rica – ready for a new life adventure! Here, we explored different opportunities from web design and publishing to farming! We built our lovely octagonal home – affectionately known as The Mothership - on an organic farm up in the coastal hills. This small community was just at the point of growing and expanding and ready for some new input and contribution. After building our house, we decided to head back to London to take advantage of some other work opportunities that would allow us to further create our dream space in Costa Rica.

It was while I was in a coached training session for one of my freelance contracts back in London that I had this incredible revelation. As I watched and participated in the coaching session I realized that this was what I wanted to do: coaching! This profession could allow me to use a culmination of all my various skills, with a focus on people. It seems the universe was in agreement, as I won a free coaching session with this particular coach as part of a game that was being played in the group. Not surprisingly, this meeting only served to confirm that coaching was certainly something I needed to pursue further. After some research, I settled on Coach U for my training requirements and embarked on five years’ study to qualify as a coach. 

I created Boost You, my coaching practice in 2005 and have been loving life all the more since coaching.  When my son was born in 2009, we settled back in the UK. I’ve continued my professional and personal development and have studied NLP, Hypnotherapy and continually enhance my coaching skills. And to reassure you, I'm a qualified coach with over 900 hours' experience and a member of the International Coaching Federation.

Besides my coaching and being a mum, I have many diverse interests including event production, DJing, cooking, yoga, active involvement in my son's school PTFA and other creative hobbies!  It is not an understatement to say that I love my life.
