About me

Boost You coaching is all about giving you the boost you need to live the life you want.  Flexible, do-able, motivating coaching that supports you in realising your potential, whether that's making more of who you are, or more of your leadership skills or more of your business.

-Would you like to change your current situation and get some clear direction, or enhance the life you have?

-Or perhaps you need some inspiration to tackle something new?

- Are you new to a role or senior position and struggling to find your feet?

-Do you feel your business lacks focus or direction?

-What's holding you back from realising your dreams?

-Is something missing? Or are you just 'stuck'?

The coaching relationship designed and developed through Boost You, is created in a way to help you, the client, improve a slice, or indeed the whole 'cake' of your life from the here and now and not through dwelling in the past. By helping you gain greater insight in to what you want to achieve and setting realistic, do-able goals, then encouraging and positively motivating you towards achieving those goals, you can go out there and do it for yourself. Your new, more positive mind-set will allow you to attract what you want.

Flexible and designed to suit you:
The beauty of coaching is also in its flexibility. You may be surprised to learn that most people enjoy their coaching relationships over Skype/Zoom or phone, with little or no face to face contact with their coaches. Phone or video coaching is very effective and powerful. It calls for active listening, where one picks up on the subtleties of language, tone, pace, what's said, and not said. It's also a very convenient way to receive coaching.

Face to face sessions can also be arranged if local.

Training, qualifications & experience

My name is Tanya and I am a qualified life and executive coach. I've had my practice called Boost You since 2005, and I relish the opportunity to encourage and support people in exploring, and ultimately flourishing from life's challenges big or small.

I'm a graduate of the extensive training with Coach U - both the Core Essentials and Advanced programmes, with over 900 hours' coaching experience. And more recently, an 8-month High Performance Coaching course to refresh and enhance my Exec Coaching skills.

I work with people from all walks of life at all levels. I spent more than 15 years in advertising, media and event production industries so not surprisingly, that's where I have lots knowledge. In that respect, I have coached creative individuals, from writers and Executive Creative Directions, through to account handlers and busy C-suite business executives. I also coach students, mothers and other professionals from different fields. And I've also begun to coach teenagers to help them with motivation, direction and self-confidence.  If we connect, and if you're ready for a partner who can support you in attracting the good stuff in life, then you are who I want to work with.

Other areas of coaching I deal with

Development of vision, values and purpose.
I love working with the owners and directors of smaller, entrepreneurial businesses who are looking to clarify their vision and values, and work towards growth and change.  By coaching the individuals at the foundation level, I can support them to to develop the strength, enthusiasm and direction required to make bold moves and progress in a positive direction, achieving the best for themselves as well as their businesses.

Further information

What people say about me:

"I was going around in circles and stuck in a rut, that was until Tanya came into my life. I was excited about my next conversation with her, I came away  from them feeling lighter, happier and in control of who I am. The tools she provided helped me improve my life as an individual, wife, mother and friend. I would recommend Tanya to anyone who is stuck in a rut and looking for the “What Now?” answer." D. Schoular

"Tanya has been an integral part of our business success over the past few years, coaching my senior team and coaching me. Supportive, insightful and very experienced in leadership Tanya is a key part of my leadership success." Chris Averill, Global Innovation and Transformation Lead.

"I have had some of the most important, difficult and rewarding conversations of my professional life with Tanya Goddard. She's remarkable. She understands the creative psyche - and the positive and negatives of that - as well as anyone I know. I cannot recommend her highly enough - for support on an individual or team basis - and would happily speak (in confidence of course) to anyone who might wish to engage her." Patrick Baglee, Exec. Creative Director

“My brother connected me to Tanya. I was a doubter, a life-long I-got-myself-into-this-I-can-get-myself-out person. But I needed something – I was in a perfect storm of crises: career/health/money/relationships/age. Tanya was strong, clear-headed and stabilizing. (All that stuff you read here about how nice, supportive, etc she is, is true – but she doesn’t let you off the hook! Trust me.) I am recommending Tanya to my daughter. I can't say more than that.” Paul C.

"Boost You/Tanya's extraordinary talent has enabled me to love myself again and take positive control of my life."
AY, Wales, UK

"Tanya's approach is both systematic and tailored to your own immediate working culture. She provides insightful feedback and helpful techniques to develop leadership skills in complex and demanding environments. And she challenges assumptions and attitudes while providing a safe place to learn. I would wholeheartedly recommend her."  AT, London

“I think its fair to say that I was slightly sceptical prior to my first coaching session however nearly a year down the line, I’m more than benefiting from my        experience.  Empowerment probably best describes the change Tanya has instilled within me, in both my personal and professional life. Gone are the days of ‘that’s just the way I am’ and ‘what will be will be’. Now I have the belief and realisation that it’s only me stopping my progression and dreams. Highly recommended, and excuse the cliché but it really has been life changing – which my fiancé and business partners can vouch for.”  SC, London

"Tanya is a very empathetic, sweet-natured person. She has this special skill of keeping you on track at the same time as being non-critical and supportive. Tanya teaches you how to circumnavigate around problems that seemed previously insurmountable; how to get around obstacles sometimes even transforming them into opportunities, she is amazing! In my 3 months with her help I have learnt all sorts of helpful techniques to unlearn old habits and improve my life dramatically. I truly think that everyone should have this opportunity to change and improve their lives; this will help anyone out a huge amount towards their goals. Those that are really dedicated will get the proportional rewards of success to the effort they choose to put in. Success all the way, really, I dare you to give it a try there is no way you cannot benefit from Life-coaching with Tanya!"
