Personal Trainer | An AAFA certified personal trainer with over 16
years experience as a consultant working in prominent healthcare
organizations nationwide. She is an entrepreneur with over 15 years of
successful business development and strategic planning experience in

Tanya’s passion is disease prevention and maintaining health and wellness. “In my 15-year career in health information management, I spent countless hours reading medical records. In chart after chart, the same preventable conditions appeared over and over again. Diabetes type II, hypertension, coronary artery disease, and obesity are so prevalent in the adult population that it was actually surprising when you didn’t see it documented in the record. I finally decided, ‘Enough is enough! I want to be part of the solution’”.
Tanya will be working with Tina and The Gestalt Institute of New Orleans on specifically creating a Women's Empowerment retreat that is a research based weight loss program designed to feel like a slumber party at summer camp and set up participants to melt fat in an extremely individualized and dynamic way. Current participants have lost 5 to 8 pounds in the first week and average 2 pounds or more without being hungry.

Our founder, Anne Teachworth, recently passed on. She will be missed by many of her clients and associates...
Anne Teachworth, CGT, FAPA, CPC, Certified Gestalt Therapist, Fellow, American Psychotherapy Assn., Certified Psychogenetics Coach is the Founder and Director of the Gestalt Institute of New Orleans/New York, and a therapist in private practice since 1978.
Anne received her Fellowship Diploma from the Gestalt Institute of Houston in 1977 and founded the Gestalt Institute of New Orleans/New York, Inc., in 1977. Anne has conducted workshops and trainings here and all over the United States, Canada, Mexico, Israel, and Europe. She was the developer of The Psychogenetic System™.
For over 30 years, she trained and supervised hundreds of Gestalt Therapists in the art, theory, skills and ethics of counseling. She sponsored and co-led Gestalt workshops in New York with one of her teachers, the late Laura Perls, co-developer of Gestalt Therapy. Before her death in February of 2012, Anne maintained a full-time, private practice for over 30 years in New Orleans and a part-time practice in New York.
Anne taught on the staff of the Gestalt Institute of Haifa, Israel for three years, at the DiMele Center and the Gestalt Therapy Institute in New York. She had a MA in Gestalt Counseling and was a Fellow of the American Psychotherapy Association. She was an Associate Member of the New York Institute for Gestalt Therapy and a Board Member of the Louisiana Group Psychotherapy Society, and a member of the Assn. For the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy.
In 1977, Anne began studying Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) with Richard Bandler, the co-developer of NLP. In 1980, Anne began teaching flirting classes for singles in New Orleans. In 1987, she and Richard Bandler made a one and a half hour color video tape in Palm Springs, CA. in 1991 entitled THE ART OF FLIRTATION which is available through our Media Store. It was Anne’s work with singles that led her to research their attraction and selection patterns, develop her Psychogenetic System™ method and write "WHY WE PICK THE MATES WE DO" in 1996.
Specializing in couple counseling, Anne developed a new transgenerational couple and parenting counseling approach called THE PSYCHOGENETIC SYSTEM™. In 1995, Anne presented this new approach at the 1st AAGT Conference, (Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy), in New Orleans. She also presented at the European Association for Gestalt Conference in Italy in 1998, the World Conference of Psychotherapy in Vienna in 1999, numerous Transactional Analysis, Gestalt and NLP conferences around the world.
A chapter on her work entitled THREE COUPLES TRANSFORMED first appeared in a book of Gestalt case studies, A LIVING LEGACY TO FRITZ AND LAURA PERLS, edited by Bud Feder and Ruth Ronall, and published in 1996. Anne’s most popular book is WHY WE PICK THE MATES WE DO (1997). It is a step-by-step re-imprinting program to improve your current relationship and/or select a better partner.
She presented workshops in New York at The Relationship Center, at the Gestalt Institute of San Francisco, Long Island, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Philadelphia, and the Institute of Humanistic Psychology in Eschweiler, Germany.
