Since working with Tamsen, everything has changed and improved. No longer am I being told that my prices are too expensive and in fact, I’m selling packages that are earning me MORE money.
Before I worked with Tamsen I had just made the decision to niche my existing Hypnotherapy business in weight loss. I had so much information and many ideas and thoughts in my head but I just didn’t know how to organise them. I knew that I’d found my passion but I just didn’t know how to create the business I wanted.
I had been struggling with my Hypnotherapy business. I was not attracting the right clients and many of the ones I was attracting, I was finding were making excuses to stop or telling me that I was too expensive. Talking about my business at networking meetings or on social media had become harder and harder, because I just didn’t know what my business was!
I was looking for a mentor to work with who I could be totally open and honest with. I wanted to be able to say if something was difficult or if I didn’t know how to do it. Most importantly though, I wanted to work with someone who I knew to be successful in their business – someone who I could really learn from.
Tamsen had come highly recommended and after talking to her on the phone I knew that she was the right person. She understood exactly where I was and how she could help me. To be honest, working with Tamsen was hard work. It took time and immense brain power and it was a big commitment. However, I was completely committed to getting a result and so it was totally worth every minute! Our VMA day was incredible.
Finally I had a clear vision of what I wanted my business to be and why and I had an action plan of what I needed to do to make it happen – all in a logical order! My goals were to have a new business name, products, marketing, new branding and a new website ready for 2016. To achieve that Tamsen took me right back to the very basics – to the very essence of my business and we worked on WHO I want to be talking to and specifically HOW I could talk to them. Tamsen had a real talent for picking out the key aspects of what I deliver and showing me how to communicate the benefit of working with me to prospective clients. Her feedback was always considered and valuable and at each session I was given clear instructions of what I needed to do, with email support throughout to ask questions and get feedback and encouragement.
The process Tamsen has guided me through has helped me develop my confidence in what I am delivering to my clients and to understand exactly how I do that and how it helps them. I’ve also discovered a talent for writing that I didn’t know that I had! Since working with Tamsen, everything has changed and improved.
I am so much more confident in the quality of my products and the value they are giving my clients that I have generated strong interest at networking meetings and have booked in new clients. No longer am I being told that my prices are too expensive and in fact, I’m selling packages that are earning me MORE money. I have achieved exactly what I wanted to with Tamsen’s help: A new business, a new name, branding, web content, products, marketing strategy, social media content, new business cards and an exciting vision for the future. At last I can stand up at a networking meeting and feel excited about talking about my business because I know exactly what it is and I really believe in it!
If you’re not making the progress you want in your business, if you are struggling to talk about it and don’t know where you want your business to go then work with Tamsen! You will receive expert guidance, creative thinking and powerful insight that will help you to take the steps you need to have a successful business. It is only me in my business and I just didn’t have the knowledge of what to do or how to do it on my own and you don’t have to either – that is what Tamsen is for! She made this work exciting and rewarding and I now have a mentor who I will continue to work with in the future, I know that there is more that she can help me with!Carol Seaborne
If you don’t work with Tamsen, then you are wasting valuable time in which you could be creating magic in your business – just go for it!
Before I met Tamsen I was overwhelmed by my ideas and the way my brain had butterfly tendencies. I flitted from one thought to the other with no clear plan of how to bring it all together. I started my relationship with Tamsen via one of her VMA Strategy Sessions and left with an amazing new plan which brought all my ideas together into a clear strategy.
Since this day I have had monthly coaching calls and after each call I feel unstuck and re-invigorated. Tamsen has a talent which gets right to the core of the issue, untangles it and sets your ideas free. What I REALLY love is that Tamsen has many strengths and while she has a wealth of business expertise, she also has a first class coaching skills. She looks at the person behind the business (you) and ensures everything is in alignment to ensure success. Quite simply, when you work with Tamsen, magic happens.
The last call I had with Tamsen is going to be worth so much to my business as together we created a framework which pulls everything I believe in and teach together into a simple program. I don’t think I would have ever have developed the program without her but every time I think about it, and what the future holds, I get butterflies in my stomach (not my brain) which is an amazing feeling. I think for me, I have many ideas on how to grow the business so what I needed was someone who can see through all the chaos, pull it together into a plan and support me along the way.
Tamsen delivers every step of the way. I feel safe knowing that Tamsen is behind me on this exciting journey and feel proud to be working with her. Thanks for everything Tamsen – you are a superstar. If you are considering working with Tamsen please do not think about it too much longer – you are wasting valuable time in which you could be creating magic in your business – just go for it!Victoria Casebourne
We worked on my overall business model and made some very fast progress
Tamsen is a very smart and switched on coach. I work quickly and I get frustrated when coaches can’t keep up with me or want to slow me down. Tamsen understands what works best for each individual and then how to apply that to the problem at hand. We worked on my overall business model and made some very fast progress and flagged some actions to be made with immediate effect. She has a bright, energetic personality too so the sessions are always fun! I would highly recommend her work!Karen Hardie
Each session with Tamsen has resulted in a leap forward!
Tamsen and I have been business contacts since 2012 and I have always been impressed by both her business experience and her energy. In early 2014 we identified that we had a significant opportunity for growth at Elation but I knew that without the right decision making and the right buy in from the team I would not achieve my goals. I thought immediately of bringing Tamsen on board to help.
Since that time Tamsen has run several sessions in the business, we have worked on a 1-2-1 basis to firm up my personal vision for the business. Tamsen has worked with the team to help them align themselves to my vision and ensure that they are driving the business forward with passion and she has also facilitated some great senior planning meetings.
Everyone in the business agrees that when Tamsen comes along things get done and each session has resulted in a leap forward. The size and profitability of my business has doubled since working with Tamsen and she is without doubt a part of our long term plans.
If being the best you can possibly be is important to you – ring Tamsen!
If you need to move your business forward Tamsen will not only get you moving – she will propel you and your business to the next level!
Before making the decision to work with Tamsen, I was in overwhelm. I was receiving lots of conflicting advice and felt like I was being bombarded with information from many sources. I was overwhelmed with my very long todo list and deciding what to do first, and I was stuck on which direction I should take my business in. I felt I was running very fast but getting nowhere, like I was just standing still with nowhere to go. I didn’t know which way to turn.
My VMA session with Tamsen was amazing! I was expecting clarity which is what I needed and wanted, but what I got was much more than that. I got revelations about my vision for the future – things that I had never really allowed myself to consider before. I left the session knowing what my long term vision for my business felt and looked like and for the first time, I was clear on what had been holding me back until that point. I had a vision, a reinforcing statement and a qualifier question to help me focus on my plan and to keep on track – brilliant, simple and easily implementable tools that I could and did use immediately. I left with a feeling of calm. It was as if the anxiety had gone completely.
After the session, I created a visual representation of my vision and posted it in 4 places where I can see it several times a day. I wrote my reinforcing statement and my qualifier question and posted those on my wall. For the first time, I was crystal clear about who I wanted to work with and I was so focused on the specific outcomes I wanted that within 3 weeks I had been invited to speak at 4 different events.
If you are considering working with Tamsen, just do it! If you need clarity or to overcome overwhelm, or if you just need to move your business forward Tamsen will not only get you moving, but she will propel you and your business to the next level. That’s what she did for me.Deborah Turner
We are aware of her in-depth understanding of her ability to develop infrastructures to enable them to grow
Tamsen helped us to define our Vision for the business, create the business strategy, document our workflow and is now providing operational support, so that we can get on with developing the business. Having worked with Tamsen in a previous role, we were aware of her in-depth understanding of the needs and challenges of a growing business and her ability to develop infrastructures to enable them to grow. We look forward to working with her in the future as we develop Fair Contracts UK Ltd into different regions and industries.
Tamsen is passionate about helping you align your vision with positive action. She will help you identify the areas where you are not in alignment and help you to overcome them. She will then create a plan to help you move towards your goals and support you through the process.
I was lacking connection and I felt as though I was working hard but not getting anywhere. I wanted to align my vision and my purpose with positive actions which would help me to move forwards with confidence. I was attracted to Tamsens’ energy (but also overwhelmed by it!) but I wanted some of what she had and so I made the call!
During my initial call with Tamsen, I was very grateful that she told me that she couldn’t help me until I had moved through an emotional block. Once we started working together she listened to what I needed and offered me a suggestion of how she could help and then gave me a structured process to follow. The key things that worked for me were her listening and perception skills and then giving me a structure. I enjoyed Tamsens’ clarity offered with a deep kindness. In particular she gave me an exercise to focus on my vision, to identify my ideal client and my marketing messages and to come up with a strapline and elevator pitch.
I am now clearer about my vision and I have made goals for 2016 with steps as to how I can achieve them. I have been able to utilise the marketing questions in my website content and I have developed a clear one minute message to share at networking meetings. I feel much more in alignment!Rosie Withey
If you are looking for a business coach and you are serious about growing your business, then I would not hesitate to recommend Tamsen
At the time I met Tamsen, I was very clear on my vision for my business, and had ‘dream’ goals, but lacked the master plan that was going to really give me the traction to move my business forward and nearer to my goals.
Tamsen has been working with me for the last 6 months, and has helped me to map out the plan for my business and I can really see a big difference already. Her experience and expertise in operations and team training has been invaluable, and she has helped to shape the structure for the business.
As well, Tamsen is a joy to work with and has a very hands on approach. I have worked with many coaches, and know that Tamsen was the one who made ALL the difference in my business growth and direction. I cannot recommend her highly enough. I plan to continue to work with Tamsen on-going, and see her as an integral part of my team.
If you are looking for a business coach and you are serious about growing your business, then I would not hesitate to recommend Tamsen.Philippa Constable
I now recommend Tamsen to my large business clients and have seen first-hand the transformation she has made there too
Before I met with Tamsen I was distracted by opportunities that presented themselves but because I had no means of evaluating them, the energy I expended took me away from concentrating on the stuff that actually was taking me in the right direction.
My VMA session enabled me to really focus my attention on what I wanted from my business and my personal life and the Vision I created now provides a reference point for everything I do. It feels like it is embedded in me almost as part of my DNA and my Mindset is permanently geared to ensuring that I only spend time on activities that are aligned with my Vision. When I booked my VMA session, I was just starting up having recently left an employed role so it wasn’t an easy time. My Vision wasn’t so much about yachts and 4 Bed detached houses etc., it was more simple than that. It was about what I wanted in terms of the people I worked with, the working conditions I worked in, and a general sense that I was providing the best possible advice and service to my clients. As a one man band – VMA shifted things for me and really made a difference to my business.

If you are feeling stuck or not quite sure if your business is giving you the results you want then I strongly advise you get in touch with Tamsen
Six months ago my business was growing but not in the way I wanted and I felt like I was being carried along by the tide, not really knowing where I was heading or what it was that I really wanted.
I met Tamsen at a networking event and everything she said resonated with my situation. Together we came up with my vision of ‘what’ and ‘why’ and an action plan of ‘how’ to start things moving in that direction. Since doing this my business has changed direction and continues to grow organically but it is now heading for a place I want it to. This has all been achieved with very little additional work just a focus on an end goal.
If you are feeling a little lost or not quite sure if your business is giving you the results you want then I strongly advise you get in touch with Tamsen, either to work with her directly 1-2-1, or to follow her online program ‘Twelve Steps To Traction’ – you won’t regret it!Hannah Cook
Motivated for and focused on success we were able to achieve big results easily
In June I Iooked back at the past 6 months and wondered why my business hadn’t moved forward. Since working with Tamsen, we have achieved significant business success in a very short space of time. With a clear vision my team & I knew where the business needed to be and with the right mindset, clearly defined roles and responsibilities, and a plan, everyone knew what needed to happen and when. Motivated for and focused on success we were able to achieve big results easily.
The impact has been huge!
Tamsen has worked with Elation in several ways over the last year, most recently helping my colleague and I redefine our roles within the business, our objectives for the business and our interaction with each other. Since joining Elation I have moved from a part-time intern through to Manager and now working directly alongside our MD. This has involved a lot of changes both to my job role and my working style: from having to be told what to do and how to do it to managing the MD.
Working with Tamsen has boosted this development massively and as soon as the session ended we saw the results directly helping the business. The changes in the business have all been small, really easy to implement and have caused no disruption at all, but the impact has been huge! I now I have a really targeted approach to everything I do, taking ownership of it all, and the business has a really clear and achievable growth plan.
Without working with Tamsen we’d still be moving forward, but the path would be a lot longer and a lot rougher. I can’t recommend Tamsen’s work enough!Robin Mason
If you are a big picture person or visionary like me, but find it difficult to map out the precise steps to take, or if you need any help around growing your business I strongly recommend you contact Tamsen
Tamsen was recommended to me by one of the attendees of ‘Winning Women’ in West Sussex. I was intrigued and so I contacted Tamsen to find out exactly how she may be able to help with a specific area to expand my business. After an initial consultation with Tamsen I realised she was the very person to help me. I already had my vision and a clear ‘why’, but I was stuck in the detail of ‘how’ to bring this dream to fruition. The success I’d had up until meeting Tamsen was pure luck:
I love connecting with people in business and I just seemed to be in the right place at the right time! Not the best of business models. After sharing my vision, Tamsen was easily able to point me in the right direction. Giving me a clear action plan of what my next steps should be, including the processes I needed to implement.
We’ve now worked through these steps and are delighted with the results. Having the clear action steps has refuelled my motivation. We are currently in talks with 3 new Winning Women Ambassadors around the country and ahead of our monthly target for our overall annual plan.
If you are a big picture person or visionary like me, but find it difficult to map out the precise steps to take, or if you need any help around growing your business, I strongly recommend you contact Tamsen.Allison Marlowe
The work has enabled a consistent doubling every year for 3 years on the trot
Tamsen has the rare ability to hold 4 elements in clear focus when interacting with people: 1, The organisation’s needs, 2, the person’s skills and attributes, 3, where these best fit, and importantly 4, what gaps need developing to get best performance. With her unusually good rapport building skills she is able to effortlessly work with these factors in a single conversation. The results are seriously impressive and have been instrumental in enabling a consistent doubling of 4Networking every year for 3 years on the trot.
If you know you could be achieving more in your business but lack the knowledge or courage to make the leap, I strongly urge you to call Tamsen
I’d reached that sticky point in my business where I’d been plugging away steadily at all the obvious preparatory activities: investing heavily in my technical development, accumulating high spec equipment and building a network of like-minded business people to chew the cud with. But I was aware that I was avoiding doing essential tasks and most importantly that my mind-set was preventing me from taking the necessary leap forward, in order to take my photography from a ‘paying hobby’ to a serious business. And then I started working with Tamsen.
We worked through the cloud of overwhelm that was hanging over me and identified the critical factors that were holding me back. Tamsen encouraged me to hold myself accountable to her, and within a couple of weeks I had completed the one task that had sabotaged my productivity for months – a fully developed client management workflow.
Having systemised my client work, we were then able to explore opportunities for growth, identify the actions required to achieve them and plan when I would do them. For the first time, I am able to see a clear path ahead for my business because my activity is now focused and as a result, my business is truly snowballing; I recently won a sizeable photography contract, have developed a new product for an entirely new market, and brought on a business partner!
What do I love about Tamsen’s approach? Her genuine belief in my ability to succeed combined with a steely determination to hold me to account for my own progress; her focus on developing the business in a planned and strategic way, tempered with a recognition and encouragement of my right-brained, intuitive tendencies, and her humour and humanity. For the first time, I have a genuine confidence that ‘I can do this’, which is a refreshing and exciting evolution from my earlier focus on ‘faking it till I make it’.
There’s so much more to a coach and mentor than qualifications; Tamsen combines a calm and philosophical approach to difficult business issues, she cuts through the bull, eases away fears and importantly – she makes sure that we get things done. ‘WWTD’ is now one of my most used mantras – ‘What Would Tamsen Do?’
If you know you could be achieving more in your business but lack the knowledge or courage to make the leap, I strongly urge you to call Tamsen. I personally couldn’t have asked for more.Maz Hawes
It brought both clarity and focus to my personal vision and values
I have found Tamsen so good to work with. Through a series of 1-2-1 sessions and exercises she has helped me take a fresh look at my role in the business as it moves forward, and to bring both clarity and focus to my personal vision and values. She is perceptive, genuine and positive – doing things in a way that is empathetic and motivational in equal measure.Tony Grady
If you’re constantly coming up with great ideas but never actually seeing them to fruition, trust me – you really need to speak to Tamsen
I’ve always considered myself great at coming up with business ideas, and have amassed a collection of notebooks filled with the various projects I’ve dreamed up over the years. Over the past year or so, however, I’d found myself growing increasingly frustrated with the fact that these ideas never became more than words on paper; and so I approached Tamsen for her combination of personal development expertise and business nous.
Very quickly she helped me to identify the root cause for my being unable to progress beyond the ideas phase, and armed with that knowledge we were able to devise a goal and a plan of action to start developing something I was very passionate about – writing my first book. Not only did working with Tamsen help to give me the drive to finish writing my book but together we were able to explore the potential beyond simply releasing a book; and spent months building both a solid product and platform around this idea as well as building the confidence and self-belief I needed to support it.
It’s now a month since I successfully released my book and the response so far has exceeded even my most ambitious expectations. More importantly my confidence, and the milestone of finally taking something from idea to finished products have given me the fuel I need to continue building on this success. I can confidently say that if it were not for Tamsen this would all still be scribblings and half-thought ideas rather than a book I can proudly call my own; and I look forward to having Tamsen alongside me as I continue down this path she has helped me to identify.
So if you’re in the same position I was, constantly coming up with great ideas but never actually seeing them to fruition, trust me – you really need to speak to Tamsen!Mike Morisson
I highly recommend Tamsen as a mentor to anyone who has the desire to build their business regardless of where it is now
Having changed direction completely, I found myself in start-up mode again! I have had a lot of experience building and running businesses, but I had never grown a service type business from scratch, so I was unsure where to start. Knowing what Tamsen achieved in a previous business, I didn’t hesitate to contact her for some guidance. In just three months, with Tamsen’s guidance and support, I have built a professional practice that provides both the income and the credibility I wanted. Most importantly though, I now have the tools to apply time and time again to achieve my future business goals. I highly recommend Tamsen as a mentor to anyone who has the desire to build their business regardless of where it is now.Gary Johannes
