The Birthing Coach

I work with mums to be and their birthing partners to ensure a stress-free pregnancy and comfortable birth. My mission is to support my clients to believe in themselves, take control and determine their own destiny. Birthing partners will quickly learn how to utilise their special relationship with Mum to inform bespoke ‘scripts’ whilst leaving ‘Mum’ in control.

The birthing coach can help to:

    • Ensure a stress-free pregnancy and comfortable birth.
    • Learn about the impact of stress and how to release it.
    • Inform a stress-free birthing plan and teach relaxation techniques that you can use for life.

The Life Coach

Personal life coaching can be used to address the barriers to learning. I offer supporting and professional coaching  to overcome barriers that can depend on prior learning. These factors include:

  • Specific Learning Difficulties
  • Mastery
  • Health
  • Attitudes & beliefs
  • Emotional & Social

I coach you through defeating these barriers using NLP skills and strategies and Clinical Hypnotherapy. Sessions last between 60 and 90 minutes and can take place either face to face or on line. 

Personal life coaching helps you to:

  • Manage stress, relax and sleep well
  • Improve confidence, accelerate progress and achieve your goals
  • Improve your sporting performance
  • Manage anxiety and depression
  • Establish good habits and beat addictions, e.g. Quit smoking
  • Manage pain
  • Increase fertility
  • Achieve a painless childbirth
  • Overcome phobias
  • Lose weight using a Hypnotic Gastric Band when appropriate
  • Reduce Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Overcome sexual issues

The Classroom Coach

NLP technology is an effective toolkit that transforms classrooms. After seventeen years in school leadership, I completed my  first NLP Practitioner Course with Richard Bandler. Thereafter, I returned to the classroom for three years to fully realise the positive impact of NLP on learning.

“Spell Well” is my bespoke version of the NLP Spelling Strategy. My action research, celebrated at the launch of their book Teaching Excellence by Kate Benson and Richard Bandler, has proven that this methodology can support all learners to spell rapidly. This model empowers the children to lead the main part of the lesson, so that the teacher is “free” to  accelerate learning for individual children, as necessary.

NLP in the classroom:

  • Leads to positive self belief and the art of confidence
  • Ensures emotional states for learning
  • Empowers teachers to be authentic
  • Enables learners to train their brain
  • Yields exceptional learning outcomes

The Study Coach

This aspect of my work began with two learners at different points in their academic careers. Both had become stuck, opting out of lectures or lessons, getting further behind and neither could see a way out. They had both turned to “other” pastimes to alleviate their fears of failing and had each found themselves in a vicious circle. Coaching supported them to lead their own success.

Both students were quickly motivated and back on track after a single session. I am proud to say that neither student has looked back.

Sessions last between 60 and 90 minutes and can take place either face to face or on line. 

Study coaching can help:

  • Set realistic goals.
  • Know where they were, where they wanted to be and what they needed to do to get there
  • Remember the skills and resources they already had and how to access new ones
  • Increase their self-motivation
  • Prepare confidently for the exam/assessment process

The Job Coach

The workplace is highly competitive, interviews rigorous and the process ever-changing. My experience and skills have informed successful strategies to support your career progression. There is no guarantee but often times my clients become the successful candidates.

Career Coaching  helps you to:

  • Decide that next career move and how to get there
  • Pen a convincing application and secure an interview
  • Rehearse your best interview/audition performance yet! 
  • Working with Tanya has helped me to significantly reduce my antidepressant pills. The combination of NLP techniques and hypnotherapy techniques have helped me to build confidence and be much more assertive, especially within the context of meetings and dealing with stress at work. I am now more aware of my feelings and can control negative thoughts.

  • Although I have progressed up the career ladder over the years I have always struggled with speaking publicly, particularly in important meetings. I had the privilege to work with Tanya using NLP techniques, which made these situations, not only manageable but feel second nature- instead of feeling physically sick and shaking uncontrollably I was able to deliver confidently.  Tanya used anchors and hypnotherapy to reinforce my true ability to communicate in other situations, so I could tap into this at crucial times. After an NLP session with Tanya, I was able to confidently present an inset, as well as present to school governors. Not only did I feel empowered, but other colleagues commented made. I was amazed at the difference one session made to me and can't thank Tanya enough for the difference it has made.

  • Before working with Tanya I had suffered from agoraphobia for 6 years. The 6 years prior to that, I had been living with generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder. It has been a very tough 12 years and I was close to giving up if I'm honest. Agoraphobia is truly awful, it takes away your freedom, isolates you and leaves you with little to no hope for your future. However, since working with Tanya I have found that I am incredibly hopeful for the future! I feel really positive and absolutely determined to beat these conditions once and for all! I am not cured yet but I have made a lot of progress and I now KNOW I will get there. This is a huge positive turning point in my life. I would highly recommend going to see Tanya if you are struggling. She makes you feel instantly at ease and gives you the tools you need to get back in the driving seat of your own life. That's where I am now, buckled in and 100% ready to make some serious changes for the better!

  • When I found out I was pregnant, I decided to try and prepare for the birth of my baby by doing a hypnotherapy for birthing course. I had heard some really positive stories and was open minded to find out more. Tanya was my birthing coach and she coached me how to enter a trance like relaxed state, believe and trust in my body’s ability to grow my baby and give birth and to view birth as a positive rather than painful experience. Throughout my pregnancy, my friends and family were amazed how calm and relaxed I was and I believe this was due to all the hypno- relaxation techniques I did daily. I found not only did the relaxation techniques help me have a peaceful sleep every night but also gave me skills that helped manage stress with my work too. When my waters broke at home I was able to remain extremely calm and relaxed and breathe through my surges. I got to 7cm at home on my own before I called the midwife to see if I was ready to go into hospital. I was so relaxed on the phone that the midwife did not think I was anywhere near ready until she examined me! When I got to the birthing suite at the hospital I went in the water and listened to my hypnomusic. My mum and husband both said I immediately seemed to go into a trance like state and was actually falling asleep between contractions! My birthing partners who both attended the course with me were able to help me focus on my breathing and support me all the way through using lots of strategies we learnt such as positive birth affirmations and touch. I was able to give birth to my baby girl without any drugs and she came into the world extremely calm without crying and has been a chilled, happy baby since. I view my birth as a positive experience where I had ‘surges’ not contractions, ‘pressure’ not pain and I felt confident. I completely trusted my body and baby to know what to do and relaxed and let my body take over whilst taking my mind somewhere else. I would recommend Trance-Forming Childbirth and Tanya as a birthing coach to any expectant mother. I am so happy that Tanya was a part of my daughter’s journey and will be forever grateful for the skills she has taught me.

  • My son has suffered from depersonalisation since September 2017. We tried various ways to try and help him, we started at the doctors, with no help I decided to go to a private psychologist. After a few sessions, we understood why Charlie felt the way he did but had no solution how to help him. We also tried acupuncture. Neither did that really help. Then we met Tanya. Since then Charlie has been seeing Tanya Bunting, he has felt so much more positive. Charlie’s feels like its the first time someone outside the family actually cares and wants to help him. Tanya has made the time to help Charlie learn various techniques and strategies to help to control his anxiety and depersonalisation. Also knowing it will not last forever with what Charlie has learnt from Tanya’s strategies. With Tanya’s support, Charlie is now feeling better each day and much happier within himself!

  • This lovely lady came over yesterday to teach me how to control my pain(following surgery)  with Hypnosis. Thank you SO much Tanya Bunting. WOW...what a way to go, not a bit of pain and not needed to take any pain relief since yesterday lunchtime. Goodbye Morphine, Paracetamol and Ibuprofen, l don’t need you anymore. Onwards ‘n upwards, soon l will be finally fixed!  Definitely well worth trying if you are in pain, folks, incredible!

  • There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing my experience with Tanya was. She is an intelligent, highly professional and wonderfully positive person who helped me massively with getting my wisdom tooth removed. When going to book my appointment, I was so scared that I was crying and shaking at the thought of it. I have been terrified of needles and any surgical procedures for a long time and often get quite faint and light-headed when in these situations. After my first session with Tanya, I instantly felt calmer and more positive. She even provided me with a personalised trance recording to listen to at home in the week leading up to the procedure. I even found that I could use the skills she taught me to help through stressful moments in my life. On the actual day, she came with me to the appointment and reminded me of how to stay positive and relaxed throughout. In a situation that would normally prompt tears, I ended up smiling and laughing the whole way through. I walked out with my head held high and didn’t even feel slightly faint. I feel so strong and positive now and know I will be able to use the skills she has taught me to cope with other difficult situations I might face. Tanya is a wonderful person who cares about her clients and will make sure you have the tools you need to succeed.

  • I strongly recommend Tanya Bunting Coaching for anyone who is applying for a teaching interview or a new job. After being unsuccessful at interview, my confidence was knocked. I worried that I might never get a teaching job. After working with Tanya who coached me through the entire process from lesson preparation, to delivery and formal interview, I left feeling confident and ready to take on my next interview. Throughout the interview day, I felt calm and confident as I undertook the various tasks including a lesson observation, planning task, marking and the formal interview. I was the last one to interview and they called me sooner after I got into my car to leave. I was really excited to let Tanya know that I’d accepted the job.

  • Prior to meeting Tanya and enlisting her help I was demotivated, full of anxieties, lacking in confidence and generally not enjoying life. After working on these areas and historical life experiences I feel more alive and with a zest for life and living again.  Having always been in control, confident and facing life with energy, taking time to reassess how I wanted my life to progress has been a revelatory experience for me. I would highly recommend Tanya to you.  Her abilities are abundantly clear and I feel proud to have received her undoubted skills in helping me back on the road to fulfilling my potential whilst on this earth!!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
