from grief to greatness


AUTHOR, SPEAKER, mentor, life coach

If you are facing a major adversity in life - it's normal to feel angry, isolated and alone. Let me show you how to come back even stronger and master resilience in every area of your life.

Tanya Unkovich Grief and Addiction Expert

Hi, I’m Tanya unkovich

I’m happy you’re here— but I’m sorry you’re going through this painful experience right now. You likely never thought you’d need the kind of help I offer, but I want you to know you’re in the right place.

As a published author, corporate trainer, speaker, and executive coach, I’ve helped and spoken to thousands of people on how to overcome adversity, find their greatness, and come back even stronger.

This time in your life doesn’t have to be devastating. No matter what you are going through, or are struggling to move beyond, you CAN rise up and have meaning and purpose again. You CAN regain your personal certainty and have clarity and direction. You CAN find peace. You CAN be excited about life again.

I know, because I suffered many adversities, and then a major loss that shattered my world to pieces and took me on an Unplanned Journey. In the end, I found a way to reach the other side, and stronger than before.

Tanya is an outstanding communicator, both as a listener and provider. Her understanding of and focus on my needs was excellent.”

Mark F, Sales Manager, New Zealand.

“When Tanya says, ‘Make the worst day of your life into the best day of your life!’ these aren’t the words of a half-glass full woman; these come from a ‘spilling over the brim, grab life by the throat, I’m going to make the absolute most of everyday’ kind of person”.

Tanya Unkovich. Unplanned Journey Book
“This is one of the most moving and courageous stories I have ever read. The experience of watching the love of your life die must be extraordinarily harrowing. The fact that both Tanya and her husband documented what they were going through during his last days must surely be the staunchest gift to anyone else facing the same experience. This is a love story beyond parallel.”

Ann Andrews
Author, CSP

“I couldn’t put it down. This book is as real and raw as they come. Tanya bares all and takes you on her very personal journey through loss, darkness, and depression and shares how she crawled back into the light. Truly a celebration in the resilience of the human spirit, a lesson we can all learn from.”

“One of the best choices I have ever made in terms of furthering my self development was to enlist the help of Tanya. There are not enough accolades I can heap onto this powerhouse of a woman.”

“I would highly recommend Tanya Unkovich to all who experience crises in their life or a difficult life transition, or to those who know that there is more to life, but don’t quite know how to get there.”

Tanya Unkovich

I am utterly grateful to Tanya for the journey she led me through. During 12 weeks we worked with her, I transformed as a person in such a wonderful way.

Before meeting Tanya, I reached a point in my life when I lost contact with myself, with my intuition, with my body.

This feeling of not knowing who you are, what you want and what you need, and being insecure and unsure about everything, is draining. I felt desperate, powerless and lost. And I overate.

These 12 weeks led me to knowing. Today I know myself and I appreciate myself for who I am. I learned a new healthy way of relating to food, and developed some new impressive habits. I reconnected with my intuition, and it leads me to the decisions that are right for me.

I discovered how it is to live a life of awareness and to be happy here and now, no matter what. This is an amazing way of living!

The tools and tricks I learned from Tanya, will stay with me for life. They have become a part of me through this transformation process, and therefore this knowledge will not easily be forgotten.

I will be able to use it whenever I need. Thank you!

Nathalie, Norway.
