Hey there, I’m Taunya Zipse

Transformational Relationship Coach, Therapist, and Speaker

Work With Me

Therapist, coach & Relationship Expert

Parents, couples, and the relationship with yourself is where I like to help. But truly, I believe you have the power inside of you to know what’s best.

Though my courses, memberships, workshops, retreats, keynote speeches, and corporate training, I uncover the ways that your emotions are your superpowers and teach you how to use them for good.

Conflict and challenges are inevitable, but I’m here to help you uncover exactly who you are and how to bring your best self to the world. I’m here to help you with self love, self acceptance, vulnerability, and personal responsibility for a better in your life.

As a transformational relationship coach and therapist...

I believe we can change the world one person at a time. My job is to help you transform. No two individuals, couples, or kids are alike; therefore, we’ll address your specific concerns and coping and get you back into a state of love and connection with yourself and others.

 

Here’s what others have said:

I have a natural tendency to pinpoint root issues which have been hindering people from enjoying a healthy, loving relationship, so much so that my colleagues call me “The Laser.” Always wanting what’s best for my clients, I’m also referred to as “Mamma Bear” since I’m able to see the big picture and understand how my clients can achieve the results they desire. The rewards I receive are when clients, whether an individual or a couple, have a breakthrough and can see a promising future. 

HER story changed the game for me

In 1997, while leading a strong, confident woman with a passion for life on a guided hike on the West Coast Trail in B.C., after the initial 20 km’s, she found herself frozen with fear atop a 200-foot high ladder. The fear which had taken this strong woman to a paralyzed state as she clung to the ladder intrigued me as this was not the same person who started the hike with me. Slowly, I was able to help her tap into her inner power and identify what had made her halt; she was able to take one step at a time and descend from the ladder safely. experienced.

She wrote me a short time after her hike and explained she had a cognition that the reason she had suddenly become stuck on the ladder was that she had a chronic sensation of always being under her controlling husband’s eye. She decided she would not tolerate his behaviour and to come into her power, and the result? She and her husband now have a deeper, more loving relationship than they ever experienced. It was her experience that then sparked my passion for becoming a student and teacher of my profession, uncovering how facing the obstacles life gives us can give us the empowerment to take steps towards a more joyful life.

Awakening to a new career

My interest and excitement in this subject led me to study psychology at the University of Calgary and completed my counselling training over the next three years at Clearmind International through their Transpersonal Psychology Counselling Program. Combining my training and my own life experiences and lessons, I created my practice into what it is today: a compassionate, non-judgemental atmosphere where my clients can open up, and we can determine the steps to take so they can yield a better relationship with themselves and others.
