Tânia's varied training background includes Physical Theatre and dance where she trained while living in Brazil, where she grew up. Eventually she discovered her talent to heal people's aches and pains via her touch. That led her into studying 3 years of Shiatsu and 6 years of Martial arts with Senzei Ken Waight, internationally known Shiatsu, Acupuncturist and founder of Kitaido (Martial Arts) in London. While training in Shiatsu she started to practice Zen meditation followed by Vipassana meditation which she still practices.
During the end of her Shiatsu training she gave birth to her daughter at home, who enjoyed very much her mother's daily massage. To further her skills she embarked on a year PGDip course at Well Mother with Suzanne Yates in Bristol, internationally known Shiatsu teacher on the subject of Pregnancy, Labour & beyond, and Baby Massage. During the subsequent years Tânia trained also as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, and worked as a tutor at the school she trained, C.T.E.T..
The training in Women's Sexuality Coaching came after realising that many of her clients had sexual issues that went unacknowledged. The training was an experiential training which enabled Tânia to discover her own issues around her own sexuality and in the process acquire a deeper understanding and awareness on the subject, not only clinically but also spiritually. Since then she participated in various seminars and shorter trainings on the subject of women's sexuality. At the same time she started to research on the subject of sexuality, using the techniques from her trainings to approach the delicate and little understood by society, subject of women's sexual energy.
During her women's sexuality coaching training she came across process psychology work which complemented the work she was developing greatly. To further her understanding on psychology process work she started training as a Counsellor at The Psychosynthesis Trust in London (She is in her 3rd year - 2018) The result of many years of studies, and clinical research culminated with the creation of a body of work called Craniosexual Therapy for women with amazing results, helping women to reconnect to their sexuality in a healthy way.
Tânia's women's workshops and gatherings aim to guide women to deepen the intimacy with themselves, illuminating the implicit radiance that is there, with huge repercussions in how your relate to yourself and others, in an ongoing healing process for you and the world. The work she creates acknowledges body and soul and invites you to embody where you are at, dismissing nothings and embracing all you are.
I was surprised by the amount of activities presented that were simple in concept but complex in the way the energy changed and freedom of expression expanded and filtered into the core rather than bouncing off the outer shell. Very transforming!
The level of knowledge and experience was clear from the start of the workshop. The practical yet sensitive presentation of the anatomy of the genitalia was perfectly pitched. The explanations of arousal and orgasm and the function of the various structures was comfortable and reassuring.
As the workshop progressed and inhibitions faded a sense of connectedness to my femininity and heart took place. I went into the workshop as a thinking, fact based, somewhat self-absorbed, self-critical and very insular individual. I left the workshop embracing my femininity, feeling with my heart, connected to a group of women who were willing to support me and nurture my inner child and with a sense of inner freedom and personal achievement. The transformation was visible as well as felt.
The wonderful thing about this transformation is that it is permanent as far as I can tell. I approach everything with a new sense of worthiness as a woman and not as a “person”. It’s subtle yet profound in that the edges are softer but stronger, open not closed and the connections are heart felt not brain felt. This change has been noticed by my clients as we become more aligned. My business has exploded with “word of mouth” as I allow my intuition to work instead of my intellect. It’s a truly wonderful thing to be unable to explain why a healing takes place other than to say I “felt” it. I no longer am compelled to explain in scientific terms what happens with healing when the body is just doing what it knows how to do.
Interestingly, 75% of my clients are now women compared to 66% before the workshop. More women are coming to me with physical ailments that are related to stress and their role as women rather than physical trauma. Perhaps I am just more attuned to it or maybe they are but there has been a definite shift. I haven’t used any specific craniosexual holds yet but I think this not far away. Exciting stuff for the future! Thanks Tania.
C.F. Craniosexual Dynamics workshop ( 2 days) (NZ)
It's a daily exercise and a long path but something has changed inside me and I look forward to continuing the journey.
Thank you Tania, there should be more kind and beautiful people like you to make this a better world.''
