find comfort in discomfort...

This is the  founding premise of the Taylored Wellness experience, fuelling the endeavour to assist teams and individuals reshape their view of performance, success and stress and its place in our lives.

Taylor is here to deliver functional techniques for resilience & well-being  that challenge society’s current model and liberate people out of their conditioned responses, so they can regain a life characterised by lasting change and positive growth.

Imperative to this is the belief that friction propels progress - rather than seeking to entirely eliminate stress from the body, we can learn to be adaptable and fluid in our resilience to it.

Taylor goes beyond generic ‘stress management’ models into the realms of stress optimisation. Put simply, instead of just learning how to manage stress, we can learn to be good at stress.

Being a researcher, Taylor finds value in the importance of evidence based models but believes that science on its own is limited when it comes to the human experience. The T.W approach combines science and research with ancient wisdom for evidence based, innovative and more personal experiences - exceeding beyond the basics of what you may already know.
