Happy Matters Coaching allows you to see where you are in life at the moment and to reflect what is clouding over your path.

Bringing your awareness to your forefront and connecting you to lead your authentic direction.

As a coach, I encourage you to tap into your own inner voice and facilitate you to be self aware, confident, calm and compassionate.    

The approach is simple, positive, mindful and being content in the present moment no matter where you are in the world.

Happy Teen

5 x 45 min sessions

Happy Teen consists of 5 x 45 minute sessions.

I’m so excited about these sessions as I strongly believe the need to support our future generation and empower them to follow their calling. As a parent we aim to guide 100%, yet sometimes it can just make the difference to reflect and discover with someone neutral to energise:

- self-confidence
- self-esteem to make sound choices
- inner balance during a challenging shift from teen to becoming an adult
- inspiration to follow purpose and passion

Its all about giving the teens a fun space to maximise their skills to connect with their inner power, being Happy Matters!

I am grateful for the feedback below from clients and people who I'm
blessed to have in my life.

I have been working with Talu for a couple of months now. Talu is one of the most down to earth people that I’ve met. It is really easy to talk with her and she adapts the sessions to whatever is relevant to my life.

I have recently made the decision to move to China for a year. Her coaching has helped with the anxiety, fear and doubt that a big change typically comes with. Without Talu, this experience would have been extremely stressful and unsettling.

Ever since I started with True Awareness Coaching, my way of thinking has completely changed. I am more aware of my negative thought patterns. I am managing to reframe negative thoughts into a healthier and more positive mindset.

I would 100% recommend!

Sometimes all it takes is for someone to help you tap into yourself and free yourself of a blockage you might have been carrying around with you unknowingly.

Talu’s style of working with individuals allows for this reflective opportunity with a calm and balancing outlook. It’s an uplifting process when you know that you are being supported throughout the whole journey.

I have known Talu for many years and the consistency with which she offers a committed quality of support is very beneficial to those that want to tap into a better and truer version of themselves.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my sessions with Talu, as they have undoubtedly helped me make some great steps forward.

When I first met Talu, I was immediately enchanted by her calm and friendly nature. Then I found out, that behind this calm and giving person stands a strong personality with a lot of experience, a real power woman,  with a lot of organisational skills.

She can help and provide guidance in every life challenging situation. Talu is a woman who knows exactly how to help you balance a happy family and have a successful career. She is a clear example of exactly that, whilst constantly being open to grow & develop herself.

I believe that Talu is the ideal coach to help & support people in their personal and professional journey, looking for clarity and reflection. With her skills and incredible experience, she most definitely can make a difference - I wish her lots of success and a good start!

Anna, Social Media Manager

Having met Talu at university over 20 years ago, I have enjoyed seeing her progress from strength to strength - this passion led her to enjoy a career in Geneva (IATA), to then live in multiple countries with her expatriate husband and later balancing the challenge of raising two beautiful children amongst cross cultures.

With a new desire ahead to become a coach focused on  Third Culture Kids and expatriate families, I know Talu is able to bring first hand knowledge and experience to help her clients.

As a lifelong friend, I see Talu someone who is kind, calm and extremely authentic and one who has a sole purpose to help others be the best version of themselves and that’s why I know she will be a great coach!

Good luck with your exciting journey ahead Talu!

Coach Sonia, London

I have known Talu for the last few years, as a friend and as a coach. I can say in my experience her greatest skill is in listening, paying attention to every single detail and considering my emotions and concerns, by which she helps me to place them in the right boxes and keep a positive mindset. It’s so easy to talk with her, she has this calming effect that helps me to tap into my inner peace that takes a lot of pressure off my shoulders and lets me breath.

On many occasions with her support I was able to also self reflect and reach solutions or realize I don’t need a solution because there isn’t a problem. She helped me conclude that I have my uniqueness and I should simply embrace what I have and what I am capable of doing which gave me a lot courage and confidence to live my purpose. Thank you Talu I wish you all the best in living your purpose.

Hanadi Lührs, Zain Salon Owner, Hamburg, Germany

Talu is a person full of the joys of life. A strong personality, without being over-confident,
she is someone everybody likes and she makes others feel very at ease with her.

She radiates good naturedness and is great company. An engaging woman with whom
one can enjoy intelligent and entertaining conversation. In short my kind of person.

Laurence Barron,  President & Chairman Airbus China 2004-2017 - Retired

I met Talu through a friend, she is a warm hearted, smart & beautiful person.
I have full trust and feel totally at ease to share with her.
Talu has helped me along my journey to open my mind and heart.
