"Make peace with your past, make peace with yourself, make peace with what is, and find the answers you are looking for...." Tara Atkinson
Hello, my name is Tara and I am a trained Faster EFT (Emotionally Focused Transformations) & EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) Practitioner, my passion & purpose are the increase of enjoyment in life for everyone. I work with individuals from all walks of life, all ages and backgrounds & help them release and let go of stress, lingering emotions from past events & limiting beliefs about self and the world, which, when released help people to heal on all levels of mind & body.
I was born in 1976 and raised in Kent, the South East of England.
I was privileged to be born into a mixed race & faith family, my Father being raised as an Irish Roman Catholic whilst my Mother was raised as a Muslim from Kenya and of Indian descent.
This was an unusual family dynamic for the town I was raised & provided me with a unique outlook on life.
After finishing school at age 16 I ventured out into the world to find my fortune.
I worked in a variety of jobs including an accountants assistant, a bar manager at sea, then eventually I found myself working in the big city of London as a Computer Support Analyst. My office life had began.
I moved to Australia in the year 2000 in the hope of realising my dreams & finding my place in life.
15 big city office years later I realised that even though I had experienced many wonderful things in life, I had far from exercised my full potential in the realms of career, & somehow I had managed to create intense physical and emotional pain along the way.
This started me on a mission to discover relief from my own pain.
I took the frightening step of leaving a so-called secure career and trained to be a Professional Children's Nanny.
After two years working as a Nanny, events transpired that provided me the realisation of my true passions. They had actually been staring me in the face for years but I resisted because of so many hang ups.
After more than 10 years of personal interest & involvement in the personal development field, it became very clear where my heart lay.
A friend introduced me to tapping, also known as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) created by Gary Craig, I used this form of healing personally with great results on both physical & emotional pain.
It wasn't long before my journey to become an EFT Practitioner began, and not longer after I chose to continue my studies under The Skills To Change Institute, with Robert G. Smith and the Faster EFT Coaching System.
Using my passion for life, helping people, understanding how the human mind and body work & a deep desire to unlock the mysteries of life and the universe, I have found my place as a Therapeutic Life, Success & Stress Management Coach.
About Skills To Thrive
Skills To Thrive was the result of my discovery & unveiling realisation of my true potential & life purpose.
My Mission is to bring personal performance & healing tools to the attention of others by teaching individuals how to release and let go of negative emotional patterns & limiting beliefs. This will allow people to make peace with themselves, their past, present & future. As a result they will become more accepting of themselves & the world around them allowing them to create and enjoy the life they desire.
My Quest is one of Love, to aid in the positive forward movement of human evolution, and my message is this: “There is greatness in every single one of us, and with the right tools, information and willingness to be persistent, you can harness this greatness and live a stress free, joyful life experiencing success in everything you do.”
My Goal is to introduce you to these tools, and show you what to do with them.
The private and group information sessions will teach you new ways to take control of your life through the use of personal improvement tools and exercises.
My personal interest and passion for the many forms of alternative healing have led me to gain understanding about how the human mind and body work and importantly their connection.
I have trained with the Skills to Change Institute and their Faster EFT Practitioner Training Program, my registration number is FEFT-A-718 as well as being a registered EFT Practitioner with AAMET (Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques - Membership No. 1304042).

I am however someone who deeply cares about humanity and wishes to help those who want it and need it by sharing the valuable skills that have served me so well. I wish for all of us to live a joy filled existence and I know that it is possible.
