How I went from thinking I was healthy, to an early diagnosis of breast cancer, to super healthy after an ongoing crash course on what is ACTUALLY healthy to helping others to find their Ultimate Health, staying healthy, losing weight & feeling great.
Hey there! I’m Tania,
But then I was diagnosed with the dreaded C. Cancer. Breast Cancer to be precise. I was in a fast lane of aggressive treatment that I now know was drastic and I could have taken more time. So I started to ask myself a question, that kept popping up in my now very conscious mind…..
“Why Did I Wait To Get Sick?”
Here is me with my Family.
Husband Gregor, eldest son Maximilian, not far behind in age Benjamin and my dear Mum Jackie (her dutch name is Berendje, but I challenge you to pronounce that!)

my story with detail
As an energetic and highly motivated person, I left Uni early when a business opportunity arose. Before long the business had expanded to incorporate my wonderfully supportive family – my father came into it full time, and my brother Simon, my Mum, best friend Fiona and brother-in-law Michael and a crew of staff all contributed to growing our stainless steel Housewares Business – With passion and innovation we lead the way to many trends including colour on stainless steel – we were the first to do that and now its in every store and home! We sold beautiful stainless steel housewares to all corners of the globe, straight from our factory in India. Here I discovered my true passion… people.
In 2000 I married my longtime partner and best friend, Gregor and he is the rock in my life and has supported me in all my ventures and crazy ideas. After taking a back seat in the business to have my two gorgeous boys Max and Ben, we began to look for new horizons. Gregor- the “third culture kid,” wanted to explore the world as he had done when he was growing up as the child of an expat family. So after 16 years of the stainless steel business, we left our lovely home in Brighton UK and relocated to Sydney Australia. Australia gave me plenty of time to reflect and I was inspired to start afresh and that really meant something to me. I had no idea that we were only just beginning our travel journey which was to take us from Australia to Hong Kong and on to Singapore…
Fascinated by Hypnotherapy all my life, I began training in Hong Kong and was stunned by the impact of this amazing therapy, not only in my life but my friends and family. Fortunate to be under the tutelage of Guru Sonia Samtani who runs a holistic motivational wellness clinic in Hong Kong, I began just wanting to try hypnotherapy for my boys; like all Mums – to help them when times were tough, for exam pressure, and to help them to study and do well at school, but my mind was opened up to the world of psychology and how we interact. How our subconscious is sooooo powerful in running our mind and body. I was HOOKED!
Suddenly I felt that I could help the world. I realized my time had come to do this. I was enlightened….awakened….. I asked myself “why are we not taught these practices at school”. How much more grounded would our teenagers be if this was a compulsory subject in secondary school, psychology. Learning how we interact, why we have our behaviours and being able to recognise how we influence ourselves, how our past experiences as a child shape who we are today and how opposites attract. How we find our partners and how we can keep our partners or end up driving them away. I found myself healing fears, helping relationships and friendships, building self-esteem in people and it was just magic. I had discovered the fast track to feeling positive and I was sharing it.
A move to Singapore came before we had really settled and I found myself looking for more. My wonderful friend Kully from Hong Kong suggested a Coaching Course. Results Based Coaching by David Rock. Powerful and insightful.
My journey began to deepen my knowledge and each step led to a thirst for more – parenting courses, as well as nutrition courses, became a passion.
Suddenly and without warning, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2012. It was a huge shock, denial, anger, bargaining it all came. It seemed that all the stars had finally collided and I was able to use all my new and old knowledge in my own quest to beat this disease, to be healthy for my family and to achieve long life. When I looked back at life, my family I realise that my mum had kidney disease and diabetes, my dad had diabetes, other family members cancers and I started to ask the question “WHY DO WE WAIT TO GET SICK?” 6 years later, I have the key to longevity and I know how to not get sick. My aim is to now stay disease free and after all my years of seeking, researching, testing and gaining insight from great resources, I found the answers I needed and now I want to share those with you.
Since being diagnosed I have spent every moment of everyday deep probing, watching, listening and learning. I’ve been talking to experts, listening to professionals, doing courses and each road seemed to go in the same direction to the same ultimate conclusion – We can all help ourselves to prevent dis-ease in the body. Why wait to get sick? Get Healthy and live a happy and healthy life.
Breast Cancer was a big shock and a scare to me and my friends and family but it was also a gift. I was able to find the motivation to sink my being into finding the ultimate way of life for longevity. I discovered juicing being the core component and route to a healthy body and so the journey began in Health. I took the ‘Dr Berg Health Coaching’ course as well as the Neuroscience – Result Based Coaching Course accredited by the International Federation of Coaching and now I have tools and to help others to live healthy, long and dis-ease free lives. I now practice Health Motivating, Coaching and use Hypnotherapy as an added tool for those that want to try it and to give back that motivation that was so important in my own recovery. I am a counsellor to newly diagnosed Breast Cancer patients.
I have a special interest in the role of nutrition, sleep, meditation, self-hypnosis, exercise and stress management and looking for the cause, rather than just settling for treating symptoms. As a result of struggling with my own health in 2012, I now eat and live by a plant-based diet and I incorporate these basic principles into the coaching of my clients. I don’t favour drugs or toxic medication, intact so much so that I said no to the cancer drugs after surgery. I am in control now.
My mission is to demonstrate to all that we should look for the cause not just treat our symptoms. Healing from the root – not just masking the symptoms with medication.
