“ On deciding to use Tanya as my coach and mentor, in truth I had no idea what I was in for. Be prepared for lightbulb moments, uncanny coincidences and challenging questions in a very supportive and non-judgemental environment. Tanya will take you out of your comfort zone, however you will love her for it, as this is where the real growth happens! This value for money coaching has benefited me in many different areas of my life and will continue to do so as I further implement the strategies learnt”      David.

Have you ever experienced crisis in in your personal or professional life or felt that you are completely stuck? One year ago, I was at this place. From the outside my life looked kind of “perfect”. I moved to a new country, got my PhD, got a beautiful daughter, was doing postdoc at the university, have good colleagues… Yet inside I felt completely empty, there were no more life left in me. I felt like I’ve been fighting every singe day from an early age, in order to get out of poverty and be free. I’ve achieved my goals. But I had no life. I have collapsed. Completely.

At that time point I coincidentally met Tanya. During the first 2-4 weeks of our work, she rebooted my energy level, so I started to see “the light at the end of the tunnel”, and that there was a way out. Tanya was present for me 24/7. Step by step we uncovered my true desires, we let go everything that didn’t serve me, and transformed all areas of my life. My growth journey has been truly rewarding. I found my freedom, I found my passion and started a new business, I re-connected on a deeper level with my daughter, and connected to many wonderful people, who got my back.

I would highly recommend Tanya Unkovich to all who experiences crises in their life or a difficult life transition, or to those who knows that there is more to life, but don’t quite see how to get there.

Tanya and I were introduced through the Tony a Robbins coaching program after I attended UPW in 2016. Tanya is an outstanding communicator, both as a listener and provider. Her understanding of and focus on my needs was excellent. Tanya is also truly compassionate and kind, as well as encouraging and appropriately demanding too. I would not hesitate to recommend Tanya as a results coach to anyone. A consummate professional as well as a genuinely lovely human being.

I am utterly grateful to Tanya for the journey she led me through. During 12 weeks we worked with her, I transformed as a person in such a wonderful way. 

Before meeting Tanya, I reached a point in my life when I lost contact with myself, with my intuition, with my body. This feeling of not knowing who you are, what you want and what you need, and being insecure and unsure about everything, is draining. I felt desperate, powerless and lost. And I overate. These 12 weeks led me to knowing. Today I know myself and I appreciate myself for who I am. I learned a new healthy way of relating to food, and developed some new impressive habits. I reconnected with my intuition, and it leads me to the decisions that are right for me. I discovered how it is to live a life of awareness and to be happy here and now, no matter what. This is an amazing way of living! 

The tools and tricks I learned from Tanya, will stay with me for life. They have become a part of me through this transformation process, and therefore this knowledge will not easily be forgotten. I will be able to use it whenever I need. Thank you!


One of the best choices I have ever made in terms of furthering my self development was to enlist the help of Tanya. There are not enough accolades I can heap onto this powerhouse of a woman. I was lucky enough to see her advertisement on Facebook and I almost didn’t bother reading it as, over the years, I have spent thousands of dollars trying to get to the root of my emotional eating. I thought this was going to be yet another thing I would do that didn’t work. Tanya is the most supportive, kind, loving person but at the same time she keeps you accountable, gently prodding you to make the changes necessary to impact the choices and decisions to better your life. The 8 week online program was fantastic: informative and practical with bite sized activities to implement. But the point of difference with Tanya is her genuine and supportive nature and the face to face appointments were what really impacted me the most. Tanya delivered far more than was promised. She gave me extra appointments and every day, I touched base with her to keep me focused and positive. She didn’t have to go the extra mile but she did. For her, it’s not about making a living; it’s about the genuine passion and desire to help other people.While the course was about emotional eating, it’s about SO much more. I delved into the reasons why I sabotage myself and I was encouraged to make positive changes every day.Is my life perfect now? Well, no, but what I can now do is to go within and understand what drives me. I take one day at a time and can just get back on track so much more quickly.I have changed so much in the last few months and this is largely due to Tanya’s love, patience and encouragement. I am sad that our professional relationship has come to an end but she has assured me that if I ever need to touch base, she is there. What a woman! I am honored to have worked with you, Tanya.

“Just wanted to say a big THANKS Tanya. I really feel like I have benefited from per programme. It’s different to other weight loss courses because the focus is on changing the mindset. Where the mind goes the stomach will follow! The holistic approach certainly worked for me. I’ve released 6.5kg by just making different choices rather than diet per se and gained more clarity around my triggers. I’m going to stay on for the kick-ass coaching ☺so I can stay focused.” BW

I just want to thank Tanya for helping me get this far. I still have a long way to go but i know with Tanya`s help i will get there.
Tanya is amazing. She always puts her clients first. If i have a bad day or feel like giving up i email Tanya and she emails back and gets me on the right track again. Before i met Tanya i would starve myself then eat too much and end up putting extra weight on. I met Tanya 5 months ago and have lost over 20kg. But more than losing weight i have a different mindset. I use to be negative and always put myself down. Tanya has helped me be more assertive and see good in myself. Its all thanks to Tanya Unkovich. Thank you so very much

Tanya’s programme has changed my life. I now have self esteem and I am no longer yoyo dieting. I am losing weight and celebrating my successes. Tanya is caring, professional and supportive.

“I know now that age is no barrier. I am a grandmother to 7 beautiful grandchildren. What was not so beautiful was the tone of my body. I am an avid walker and runner, competing in half marathons but despite all the exercise, my body was lacking tone.

I began resistence training with Tanya, and along with her guidance on nutrition, my body has changed. What do I notice most? My posture, strength and flexibility, my body toned and so much firmer. It is one of the best things I have ever undertaken to do.

I have been in mass classes at gyms for years, I could spend time at the gym and not be doing the routine right and then set myself up for an injury. The personal training that Tanya has given me is reassuring and focussed with positive results. “

To whom it may concern:

Tanya Unkovich was the headline speaker for our weekend Business Seminar held in Taupo in April this year.

From the outset, Tanya and her husband Grant endeared themselves to our delegates for their open, honest and friendly personalities.

The conference was specifically to bring associates up to speed with a change and improvement to the business plan of our company, and to encourage the participants to believe in themselves by having the right mindset.

Tanya has a very engaging personality and is able to involve everyone in the room which resulting in positive outcomes from every session.

With a professional background as a personal coach, public speaker and regular radio presenter, Tanya was able to cover such subjects as: Seeking what Passions drive you, Reaching your Goals, Overcoming Obstacles, How to connect, and Growing your business.

These topics are imperative to all companies or individuals who are looking to improve their own situation.

We can certainly recommend Tanya as a lead speaker/coach for any function you are planning. 

Our associates increased their confidence from 0-5 at the outset to 8-10+.  The results speak for themselves.

“Tanya Unkovich was one of three professional speakers at the recent 50th anniversary of Rotorua Toastmasters. She took us on a journey through her life which had been impacted by the death through cancer of her late husband. Her story was very engaging and did not shy away from very personal and emotional parts of her life. Tanya’s speech was also peppered with humour and along the way the audience learned about Croatian culture, the challenges of dating later in life and the reliability of cats to pick Mister Right. Whilst being well entertained, members of Rotorua Toastmasters also had the opportunity to learn how to craft a speech that will hold the attention of the audience from start to finish”. Admin Thumm

“A great workshop! Tanya is an excellent facilitator, participants were able to speak from the heart in the warm, caring and non- threatening enviroment. I will recommend these workshops to my patients who are coping with life threatening illnesses`, trauma and fear.                         Michele Urlich. Mt Albert Lymphoedema Clinic”

“Tanya came into our practice and performed an overview of our systems.

We also required business mentoring during the restructuring of our medical practice and we found her approach was both professional and highly efficient. 

Tanya has always made herself available to us when we felt we needed ongoing support or training which as a result has made us feel valued as her client.”

“Tanya has been an amazing business mentor. In the short time that we’ve been meeting up, my small florist business has bloomed (pardon the pun). Each time we meet up, she offers inspirational, practical advice that I can easily put into practice which has in turn, helped me grow my business. I’m so excited to have her guide me through my first year in business”. – Rosie Holt
