About me

What makes Kazumi unique?

I’m not just “a” life coach & energetic therapist, I am the very first client! As I have recovered from a Burnout, I coach and use strategies that get results; the tools I used to renew and empower my life are the same tools I coach and treat people with now.


Extensive management experience.

Trilingual: English, Dutch, German

Extensive experience in burnout prevention.

V.I.P. treatment.

Support possible during your whole career.

You don’t pay me for my time, but for results.

More about me

Hi, I’m Tanja Spaans. I help people recover from Burnout. I teach. I blog.


I grew up in Germany, Australia and the Netherlands. Currently I live in France.

Before I had a Burnout myself, I owned, along with my former partner, a big Gym in The Hague, Netherlands. Due to long working hours, 90 hours/week, and a lot of management tasks for over 20 years, I got burned out.


“I’m not just “a” life coach & energetic therapist, I am the very first client! As I have recovered from a Burnout, I coach and use strategies that get results; the tools I used to renew and empower my life are the same tools I coach and treat people with now.”


After recovering, I turned my profession: became a Life Coach, became a Reiki Master, learned about the basics of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

In 2004 I founded Kazumi, because I want to give people, who are now fighting to survive from a Burnout, the same chance I got.

Kazumi is a Japanese name for a boy or a girl.

Pronunciation:  Ka Zoo Mee

Meaning:  Beautiful Harmony


Here’s what I believe:


“Whether it’s about a personal coaching program or a (necessary) changing process within an organization, it  only works  if people chooses for themselves to change, only than real change will be made. Real change comes from within. Therefore, with Kazumi, I always work to act from one’s own choice and intrinsic motivation. Change is voluntary. This does not mean that change is also optional…”


“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It’s our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves: “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?” Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. You playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we’re liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others”. (From A RETURN TO LOVE by Marianne Williamson)


If you’re repeatedly and chronically stressed over a long period of time, it puts a lot of pressure on your body, and can lead to a tipping point where your exhaustion prevents you from taking part in activities that used to mean a lot to you. This is burnout. Some of the signs of burnout include:

  • Feeling exhausted and feel unable to perform basic tasks
  • Losing motivation in many aspects of your life, including both work and social
  • Feeling unable to focus or concentrate on tasks
  • Feeling empty or lacking emotion
  • Losing your passion and drive
  • Experiencing conflict in your relationships with co-workers, friends and family
  • Withdrawing emotionally from friends and family

Essentially, when you’ve reached the point of burnout, you can really feel like you’ve had the life sucked out of you. Your ability to care, to make an effort, and to find motivation no longer exists.


Burnout can be healed! You can regain your balance by reassessing priorities, making time for yourself and seeking support. I’m here for you, let me help you to overcome your situation together.



Burnout Specialist

Invest in yourself

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”

Stress is part of life. Under the influence of temporary stress, we can perform very good. However, if stress is prolonged it creates problems.
When working under prolonged stress the symptoms get worse, and if you do not intervene, this leads to Burnout.
Stress and Burnout costs businesses a lot of money. Money that can be easily saved by a good prevention policy.

With Kazumi I give companies, hospitals and the army the opportunity to be a pioneer in taking measures for preventing Burnout.
I like to share my expertise in order to avoid that both, they and the employees, fail because of Burnout complaints.

Kazumi can perform a burnout risk analysis for your company.
Hereby, the organization will, anonymously, be screened using a (Maslach Burnout Inventory, MBI) test and interviews.

A custom made Burnout prevention plan to anticipate future illness due to stress, is one of the instruments to sustainably deal with your most important asset: your own workforce!
Kazumi can offer support and guidance to enlarge this policy into the organization.

Summarized, Kazumi offers a number of products that help you develope active policies to challenge tension, stress and Burnout in the organization:

  • Burnout risk analysis;
  • Prevention: implementable in your personnel policy;
  • Support in implementing this prevention;
  • Intervention course for individual cases / group training;
  • Workshops about Stress and Burnout.



I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

Champions get what they want, because they know what they want. People who consistently win are consiously committed to self-management. It is the most important resource they have in achieving their goals. They activly manage their mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health.

Your past easily becomes your future because what you fear, you create. You need to take responsibility for your actions. The greatest stress in life is to hold someone else accountable for something they can’t control. The only person you control is YOU.

Making lists…a good solution. Because:

• It helps enormously to create order in the chaos
• You can see more easily what is really important (and what is not)
• If you write it down, it’s more likely that you actually do it!

Now……GO and take action!
