Tanya Master is a certified integrative coach specialising in trauma-sensitive approaches and holistic coaching methodologies. Her coaching philosophy is rooted in empowering embodied transformation, drawing upon the powerful intersection of somatic experiencing, psychodynamic coaching, and spiritual exploration. With her integrative approach, Tanya empowers individuals to overcome obstacles, transcend trauma, and reclaim the fragmented parts of their spirit lost through traumatic experiences. She supports clients in accessing their deep inner wisdom, cultivating radical self-acceptance, and nurturing a safe and supportive coaching relationship tailored to their individual needs.
Recognising the need for a more comprehensive approach to personal development and empowerment that bridges the world of spirituality, trauma-sensitivity, and coaching, Tanya made a significant shift in 2022, her previous focus on spiritual development and energy work evolving into a dynamic psychospiritual integrative coaching practice.
In this new coaching paradigm, Tanya combines cognitive and somatic approaches with principles of interconnectedness to deliver holistic and sustainable results. Her mission is to empower clients to co-create their conscious reality and navigate life's uncertainties with resilience, personal agency, and self-integrity.
Origins & Influences
Tanya's journey has been shaped by the complexities of displacement, identity exploration, and the quest to find her place in the world. As a child of immigrants and a third-culture kid who lived on three continents by the age of 16, she experienced a challenging upbringing characterised by disrupted relational connections, neglect, and excessive self-reliance. These early experiences served as the crucible for Tanya's dedication to personal alchemy. Her journey enables her to support clients on their transformative journeys, offering a profound understanding of the power of self-inquiry and emotional growth.

Tanya is committed to continuous education and regular supervision to uphold the highest standards of quality in her coaching practice.
