About Telana

I work with people who want to change in their life, and want to improve their communication skills and relationships, and ability to express themselves verbally, creatively, emotionally and physically. I specialize in self esteem, controlling emotions, overcoming self consciousness and anxiety, handling conflict, fear of confrontation and developing relationships.  I’m a caring, focused facilitator who is all about expression.  The individuals I coach find authentic ways of communicating, relating and expressing their inner potentials. I coach and inspire others to know and experience themselves and to reconnect to the joy of living and creating on our beautiful earth, while being enthusiastic about experiencing all that life has to offer.  I am fascinated by consciousness evolution and go on adventures, pushing my boundaries and preconceptions, and host a podcast show. I have been achieving successful results with my clients for over 10 years.

My Coaching and Work Experience

Telana’s clients over the last decade have included individuals from the corporate and private sectors, ranging from students to CEO’s, stay-at-home-Mom’s to entrepreneurs.

She has been the keynote speaker at events and conferences, and appeared on radio and television, and been interviewed for many magazines and newspapers.  She was a finalist in the 2011 Feather Awards for the “Business Icon & Entrepreneur” category.

Besides coaching and training, Telana is carrying out a trading project where she is trading a matchstick up into an office using the power of networking and the internet (see onematchstick.co.za) and she sat on the Board and as the Chair of YBSA (Young Business for South Africa) for four years to develop young entrepreneurs and leaders.  She is also the founder and Anchor Host of the online TV Show, “Let’s Talk Possibility”.

  • from Kenneth Sun. MD/Owner- Companion Business Designs on 16 Aug 2015

    It’s a program for those who are on the fast track, its all about achieving everything you want out of life. I have increased my weak areas and at the same time become even stronger in my strong areas.
    It’s for individuals that want more out of life.
    I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to get ahead by breaking down self imposed barriers and beliefs. Using logical methods and models, Inner Coaching has helped me challenge irrational thoughts that have held me back in many areas of my life. It has and continues to be a motivational factor in my life.


  • from Minette Alexandre, Agency Development Manager on 24 Jun 2015

    I found that I have always been interested in the way I think and was battling to find direction until I went through the processes with Telana in Inner coaching and I find I can almost systematically understand myself and others with more ease.

  • from Michael Payne Manager: IM Governance on 24 Feb 2015

    I’d recommend it (Inner Coaching) to anyone who wants to clarify their thinking, and who needs the guidance, a framework and some discipline to do that successfully. Though I consider myself a self motivated self starter, it took Telana to make me dig deeper and wider than I would have on my own.


  • from Desmond on 24 Jan 2015

    Inner Coaching provided a great structure for me to articulate my goals and follow up to achieve them. Telana was an organized, efficient and readily available coach who went out of her way to help me achieve the goals I set for myself.


  • from Kenneth Sun, Managing Director, Companion’s Business Design on 14 Nov 2014

    Telana’s inspiring coaching sessions really helped me get the most out of my life. It has given me unstoppable determination to achieve my goals.


  • from Sean Ramsden, BA(Hons) MA(Phil) LLB(Rhodes); Attorney of the High Court of SA on 14 Aug 2014

    Surprisingly efficacious. I would recommend that persons, particularly of strong or willful character as I am and who may be embarrassed to attend self-improvement seminars or the like, consider approaching a coach in order to assist with big decisions. As a multiply-degreed, successful professional with some background in counseling I can attest to the utility to be gained from having a patient listener who can assist in mobilising your inner to resources. I'd use the services of Inner Coaching again.


  • from Vanessa Parish, Business Analyst at EOH on 26 May 2014

    A life altering, profound experience which has afforded me with the privilege of getting to know my true self and understanding the concept that I am so much more than I give myself credit for. This has filled my life ‘toolbox’ with all the equipment I need to face life head on, with love and inner understanding.


  • from Hazel Kurian, Psychologist, One Headspace on 24 Apr 2014

    My experience has been a fruitful one, with many of the changes that I wanted to see being made in the time that I consulted my Life Coach. It was beneficial to me to feel accountable to someone other than myself, who shared in my progress. I was able to discuss practical issues and changes that I wanted to implement. I am glad I had the opportunity to try a personal growth mode that complements psychotherapy so well.


  • from Lynn Chalmers, Head Service Coordination, Standard Bank South Africa on 24 Feb 2014

    One of the best decisions I have made, Telana is a highly talented coach and managed to guide me through what was at times a challenging yet ultimately life-changing experience. I found the integrity, passion and commitment that Telana brought to all my sessions a huge inspiration and the personal outcomes I managed to realize far exceeded my expectations. I am quite sure the skills and personal awareness I have developed through this coaching experience will continue to contribute to my personal growth and the realization of many goals.


  • from Nicole Vorster, Lawyer on 24 Feb 2014

    When I started off with coaching I had a list of things that I needed to change in my life. I was a new mom and just separated from my husband and I felt lost & it felt like my life was falling apart. I needed drastic change and a friend recommended that I see a life coach. At first I was skeptical but after four months of coaching I left as a new person and never imagined what life coaching would add to my life. The coaching excelled my expectations….I arrived a broken “girl” with a list of things I wanted to change and left a whole, proud, confident, empowered and inspired woman ready to complete my journey in life with a new excitement for life.

    All I can say is thank you. Thank you for changing my life forever……


  • from Pumi Cele on 01 Nov 2013

    I would recommend the coaching program I went for to anyone who wants to use their ability to the fullest, strike balance in their lives and discover their personality. Most importantly they helped me identify my life’s purpose and I feel empowered knowing that my life has a purpose and after knowing my purpose I am now drawing to me all things that help me to fulfill it.
    The experience exceeded my expectations. It changed my life for the better and the best part is that it is still changing my life for the better. I achieved my goals and that gives a person confidence in their ability. As I work toward other goals I have this achievement to look back on.


  • from Shanel Munger Learning Manager at Edcon on 24 Sep 2013

    If you are stuck in a rut or struggling in any areas of your life, Telana is exceptionally skillful in helping you understand and work through what you need to work through to move forward with better clarity and intentionality. She keeps you accountable to what you really want.
