I have been coaching now for two decades. I integrate my experience, education and intuition, to coach you to gain clarity on what you want in life. Once you know what you want and believe in it, it is about trusting in the process and consciously focusing on it.

I am passionate about coaching and connecting with the intention of opening minds and growing people. I thrive on the journey of collaborating with entrepreneurs to develop their business and consciously design a quality lifestyle.

Coaching comes naturally for me, after years of integrating all that has been woven into the fabric of my core being. I simply trust in myself and in my ability to know what to say and when to say it. 

I actively listen to understand the essence of your communication by observing not judging and asking you questions to build awareness about your core beliefs, values and what it is you truly want in life. Discovering what limiting beliefs are holding you back and creating new empowering conversations to move you in the direction of your inspiring vision.

I will at all times respect your perceptions, your learning style and personal being while supporting you with absolute integrity, honesty and sincerity, always being present to you with a style that is open and flexible.

Together we will gain clarity and understanding of where you are at now and where you want to be, designing your vision, clearly defining your core values and aligning them with your goals to motivate you. I’ll guide you in setting achievable goals and help you stay on track to achieving them. My intention is for you to purposefully, consciously create and live an inspiring and fulfilling style of life.



My vision is to inspire confidence and conscious thinking.

My mission is to inspire you to align your vision with your values, to consciously create the lifestyle you want.

My core values: inspiration, integrity, intuition, connection, whanau, whenua, wairua.

Parallel to my work in the field of coaching, I was the director of an award-winning fashion retail business Unity for 15 years. I was responsible for all areas of the business and eventually it’s development into a franchise. Unity turnover was in excess of $10million.

While working in fashion, I mentored start-ups, judged young designer competitions, travelled internationally for fashion shows and was the buyer of NZ Brands including Trelise Cooper, Karen Walker and international brand Vivienne Westwood.

After selling my business, I travelled extensively throughout Europe for 5 years primarily based in Spain. I was coaching and I built a global network of indigenous women. Upon returning to New Zealand I accepted a contract as Regional Retail Manager for Trelise Cooper for two years. Now I’m working with private clients in my successful coaching and training business.

I value a quality lifestyle, being present to the small things, quality time with my son, travel and experiences. I love retail and fashion and I am fortunate to be able to incorporate that into my coaching and training workshops that nurtures my passion for these industries.

I have also coached across many other industries; including professional sports people, yachting, entertainment, arts, creative and health.

I have coached clients from all around the world: Italy, Russia, Spain, France, Australia and New Zealand. It's inspiring connecting with people from all walks of life and cultures.

I believe it is important to surround yourself with likeminded people. Associating with inspirational people, inspires.me.



Professionally I have gained extensive experience in business including being a member of an exclusive business networking group which enabled me to meet people such as Richard Branson, Bill Clinton, Michael Hill and Eric Rush.



My fashion retail business, Unity, was an award winning retail store in Wellington and Auckland for 15 years which I systemised, franchised and sold.

I was a judge for Mercedes Young Designer of the Year Award. Attended NZFW, MAFW and NYFW as a buyer for international and NZ high fashion brands.

I was Regional Retail Manager for 2 years managing 7 stores, 37 woman across 3 cities for NZ Fashion Designer, Trelise Cooper.



I was fortunate to work with actor, Temuera Morrison in LA at the Star Wars 30 year conference. We had a coaching meeting in Rotorua and 2 days later I was on a plane to LA to assist with his business work. A great experience and person.



I have a coaching contract with MWDI (Maori Women’s Development Inc) to empower, educate and inspire Wahine Maori in their personal & business economic development and sustainability. It is incredibly inspiring working within my own culture.

Tania has technical expertise in so many areas of business and shares this willingly as a coach.

She has a giving spirit but she’s also sharp and helps to direct you in the way you want to see your business grow.

Thinking of the time I screamed out for HELP and finally extended a hand to seek your expertise,
Initially, I didn't understand or comprehend the need for a business coach, I recall thinking: "What is a business coach?" "Why would I need a business coach when I have been working in this field?"
Now I recognise, that as a business coach, you have helped me to take my idea of being a Maori indigenous co-designer who develops and increases equity management for crown organisations, and to explore and execute these ideas into the right career path and direction.
Confidentially and impartially delving into my key competencies and capabilities to discover and execute streamlined healthy business practices.More recently, I now comprehend that you have been more of an EXECUTIVE coach. Professionally engaging me to successfully clarifying and catapulting my leadership skills within challenging business environments. Proven and practical coaching ethos and energy that embraces a far more holistic and succinct approach. Thank you.
