Gentle, encouraging, and supportive

I had the privilege of a Neuro-linguistic Programming session with Tarien. I am very new to NLP and do not have much experience with it. At the time, I was facing a difficult decision of whether to accept a job offer in Knysna, requiring me to relocate, or to stay on in Cape Town and continue to plan and work at a more long term goal I had for myself. There were some doubts in my mind about whether the latter option would be financially feasible.

In the hour with Tarien, she verbally guided me into a meditative space of self inquiry, her words gentle yet direct. Tarien helped me to stay on track in my thought process and inner exploration, without becoming too emotional, in an attempt to gain clarity on the decision I had to make. On this journey, I was encouraged to visualise each option and make associations with colours and shapes. Strange at first, I was able to accept the process with her support and allow it to unfold. These beautiful images are meaningful to me, and the session with Tarien was an extraordinary experience! She holds space well. With gratitude, Andria

Safe, embodied calm, grounded, and empowered

From our very first interaction, Tarien was professional, timeous and trustworthy. She made me feel comfortable and safe which allowed me to be more vulnerable and express myself more fully. Tarien guided me through an embodied process which revealed a number of surprising results and insights. At the end of the session, I felt incredibly calm and grounded and felt an empowered sense of optimism towards some of the challenges that I had discussed in our session. I definitely noticed a shift both in my thinking and behaviour in the week after our session. We had an online session and I felt it was just as effective as meeting in person. I can only imagine that ongoing sessions with Tarien would be immensely useful and supportive.

Gentle, skillful, and patient

Thank you, Tarien for the session. You had an easy rapport in the discovery call and a gentle manner during the session. The session was well managed, in that you were patient in creating enough space created for the images to appear. Your skillful questions helped me to get to explore the core of the issue. I will recommend your services.

More success stories

I was awake watching my mind cycle over its full negative range since 4am. I just watched it, with no reaction at all. Your explanation yesterday gave me distance from it. By the time I was ready to get up, I felt something heal. The space between me and it settled in, and for the first time I felt the possibility that I could just turn, turn away, from everything that has happened to me, and step into something I choose for myself. It’s going to take discipline but I understand how to do it now. Thank you Tarien.

Kind words about the Women’s hikes

Thank you Tarien for facilitating such a beautiful and meaningful process. I really enjoyed the connection, sharing, and respectful interaction.

~ Anna

It was such an incredible experience going on this hike. Tarien connected everyone with so much love, kindness, and gentleness. Her energy was felt right through the whole walk. I didn’t think I’d make it, but after we did the meditation with Tarien, it was so beautiful – she brought us right into mindfulness and it was beautiful how she led the meditation. I was able to open up myself and receive it all from the earth and nature. Tarien opened that up and it was amazing. I loved it. You were brilliant. Patience, love, and kindness is all that I absorbed on this walk.

I loved it thoroughly and thank you Tarien for your well-guided meditation and being present in the moment. It was beautiful and you are a wonderful being, thank you.
