Tanya Paget - transformational coach for people who give a ****!
I offer transformational one-to-one coaching sessions that can help with the change you seek. We can work on areas in your life, business, career, personal growth or more broadly your mindset and behaviours. We can work via video call or in person if distances permit.
I work with a range of clients from indie business owners to leaders in large organisations.
Are you ready to work on developing the most wonderful resource you have?
Yes... that is you!
Are you ready to be really honest with yourself? To be bold and brave? To be authentic and alive? To laugh a little more? To feel more confident? To trust and believe in yourself? To feel calmer and more focused? To ask and answer some important and sometimes difficult questions? To expand your world? Are you ready to take steps, and make positive changes?
Or as a lovely client once said… are you ready to ‘get shit done!’? That was her goal - and yes, she seriously did after we did some work together.
You've got this. Let's do it!
To give you a flavour of things, a recent client gave me this feedback:
"The timing of the coaching sessions has been perfect - I had reached a point where I was on the verge of resigning from my current post faced with the uncertainty of not having another job lined up. Tanya has been incredible right from our first initial contact on messenger and has helped me to feel supported along this journey.
I was very impressed with how quickly Tanya was able to make some initial yet significant evaluations from our first couple of sessions - this filled me with confidence that coaching was going to be a positive experience through a time of uncertainty.
I feel I have taken away valuable learning and understanding from each of my sessions which I have been able to use to guide me through my choices and decisions. During one of our first sessions Tanya explained that 'we hold the answers and that as individuals we are creative, resourceful and whole'. This has been a wonderful mantra that I have come back to time and again during the last few weeks. I had experienced counselling before but never coaching and this little quote has reassured me that I am going to get through this experience and make it my own. I am aware that my fear has slowly but surely been changing, transforming into excitement and that has been such an amazing process to observe after feeling so stuck and afraid in my old job for such a very long time.
So far, the values exercise has been a game changer for me. I have actually completed this type of activity in the past but with Tanya I have done so much more than just simply identify them; I have been able to link them to my life and my choices in the past and moving forward. This has definitely had a huge impact on where I am now and where I see myself moving forward. Of course there is still uncertainty surrounding my future but knowing what my values are and how important it is to honour them is something which I think will guide me along my path for years to come."
Book in a free consultation call with me to find out more
I'm sometimes asked 'How does coaching work online?'
In a post-covid19 world many of us are now a whole lot more familiar than we were with how much can be done online via video call! You book a time to meet with me (I have an easy to use online bookings calendar) and you immediately get sent a Zoom meeting link in a confirmation email ready for our session.
On the day set yourself up somewhere comfortable where we can talk via Zoom, bring a cuppa or a glass of water and a notebook and we can start to explore your challenges and goals. Some clients come with a specific topic they plan to work on and some come with more of a mixed bag of things and I provide a space for you to talk these through and figure out what is best to focus on.
A client who I coached online recently told me "I really wasn't sure what I would gain by talking about my future. I was also reluctant to have zoom sessions - this was before lockdown!... I wasn't sure I would feel comfortable or be able to form a relationship of trust with a coach via computer screen." Now she says about online coaching; "I honestly did not expect it to have the effect it did! I have gained so much from working with Tanya on how to achieve what I wanted from my future."

You’re interested, you’re ready for change, so how does this all work?
Check out your options and the details of each of the services I offer and my fees over on my website https://www.ellipsiscoaching.com/services-offered. I offer everyone a free introductory consultation call, which usually lasts around 30 minutes to an hour. This is not a coaching session, but an opportunity for you to ask questions and for both of us to get to know each other a little.
I’m currently offering my discovery coaching sessions at half price! Which is a great way to discover what working together on your transformation can be like. This session is a bit longer than our normal sessions as it is where we talk through all goals and possible focuses you want to work on. We also explore what drives you, why sometimes things might not be feeling right and where there are imbalances in your work life, career or personal life.
I'm sometimes asked: What is your coaching style?
Straight talking, pragmatic, warm, patient, honest, caring, focused and understanding. I like to bring in as much humor as we can to sessions, a little laugher can go a long way. Don’t think this means I don’t take the process exceptionally seriously, I really do, but a personal life philosophy is if we can travel some of the way a little more lightly, then let’s do that.
I’m ready and more than a little bit excited to walk alongside you, as you change your story through a collaborative coaching relationship, where I support, question, reflect and cheer you on! I’m ready to listen and offer the warmth and understanding through the ups and downs of your journey. I’m here to keep you accountable to your goals and to ask the right questions. I’m here to give you a boot up the arse if you need it and to sit patiently with you and listen when you just need some space. I’m here to help you move forward a little at a time with your quiet metamorphosis and to be there for the big transformative aha moments!
