Take a peek at some of the resources you'll find inside


“Rachel provides a thought provoking, grounded, well researched, rich space full of the most incredible resources in Heart of Growth. Having had the privilege to attend several of Rachel’s masterclasses live, it is wonderful to have a full set of recordings here to review and explore. This is an incredible resource to use as thought provoking prompts for client work and a space to explore on my personal journey. The structure of Heart of Growth provides an easy to navigate framework with some reassuring guiderails AND a sense of freedom to explore and go wherever your energy or needs take you.”

Sarah Smith


“I am delighted to have access to Rachel’s resource hub. It is a gem. I liken it to my own personal friendly resource library, full of encouraging insiders tips for sustained hardy growth. Whilst I regularly deal with issues, feelings, behaviours and circumstances often they come back round, albeit at another level of exploration, to enable me to unravel them at a new layer of depth and understanding. This is where the Heart of Growth is invaluable in providing timely, easily accessible resources I can tap into this, to gain another level of insight that I wasn’t either able to access previously, or was quite simply beyond my previous awareness. I often find myself saying ‘ah yes now I get it’. I hope this encourages you to join and that you truly benefit through discovering for yourself.”

Veronica Roberts


“I first met Rachel through BTS coach and was deeply impressed by her insight and compassionate coaching. I am now part of her Heart of Growth resource hub. Rachel brings a calm and wisdom to coaching conversations that allows you to breath and grow. I would highly recommend her as a coach. You will be in extremely experienced and safe hands.”

Who am I?


I’m Rachel Anderson, the creator of Tea & Empathy.

When I first became a professional coach, back in 2007, I used to say I wanted to help people to grow. But I now know that wasn’t true.

What was closer to the truth was I wanted to grow. Helping others was what intuitively I knew would be the catalyst to my own growth, by seeing myself reflected in all my clients.

I also used to focus on who I wanted to be. No longer. Now I know, if I’m to change and grow, it’s who I am right now that holds the juice; exploring my light and shadows – a deep inner transformative journey of radical self acceptance.

I discovered when I stopped trying to change and fully noticed, appreciated, accepted myself in this moment – ahh, then the glorious paradox – then I couldn’t help but grow!

Rachel Anderson - Tea & Empathy

And coaching, traditional coaching, just doesn’t hack it in this space, magical as it can be. No, as we grow, we need something that accesses our entire neurology and all our senses. We need to access the cognitive, the emotional, the physical, the spiritual, the sensual. We need metaphor and dreaming, art and sound, poetry and movement.

In The Heart of Growth I’m sharing personal development resources that have helped me in all the stages of my journey. One stage is not better than another – they are simply different, and need different support around them.

In this space, there will be nourishment for wherever you are, I can meet you where you are at.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the price of The Heart of Growth include VAT?

Yes, both pricing options for The Heart of Growth resource hub include VAT. You can choose between a yearly subscription or a monthly subscription, after which you’ll get immediate access to all the resources.

Which payment option is best for me?

If you want to try out The Heart of Growth before committing for a longer period of time or don’t think you’ll need it for more than a few months, we recommend the monthly subscription of £12.

However, to get the most value out of The Heart of Growth we recommend the yearly subscription of £120. These are resources you can always come back to, and we’re constantly creating & uploading new ones too.

How will I know which resources to use?

The Heart of Growth modules are structured by topic to encourage you to find the most suitable resources based on where you’re at in your personal development journey.

There’s a lot in it, so we don’t recommend going through the modules one by one! Rather take some time to get familiarised with the content and look at which topics interest you the most or need help with at the moment.

If you need more guidance or support you can always ask in our Tea & Empathy community, which all Heart of Growth members get access to, or book an orientation call with Rachel.

Is The Heart of Growth an alternative to coaching?

No, The Heart of Growth is great if you’re looking for ‘lighter’ support or as a complement to coaching. It is intended to make personal development more accessible for everyone. However, keep in mind it does not substitute the personal support and depth of 1:1 coaching.
