Background

Tanya spent the first ten years of her career in sales and marketing, climbing the ladders within various companies including Coca-Cola, TUI, and the Welsh Government, before becoming burned out and feeling like she was meant to be doing something else with her energy and skills.

With a passion for people, and a fire in her belly for health and wellness (which had been started by the rock-bottom of burnout) Tanya decided on a career change to therapy and studied with Chrysalis Courses UK alongside her full-time job. When she qualified as a hypnotherapist (Dip Hyp CS.), she launched Valor and began practicing as a solution-focussed hypnotherapist.

Tanya is from Wales, UK, but in September 2021 she began living and building her business remotely, spending the first 8 months in Mexico, and up until now has spent time in various parts of the USA and Europe.

In the last twelve months, Tanya has organised and hosted two TEDx events; TEDxPontyclun in Wales, and TEDxZazilHa, in Quintana Roo, Mexico. Both events involved building a team of volunteers, curating the event lineup, working alongside local businesses, raising sponsorship funds. Both events sold out and the talks can now be viewed on the TED network.
