About me

Experience of working with women to change their lives. Moving from places of disappointment, frustration, fear and anxiety, to having a positive outlook, taking control of life and taking steps to create the life they want, changing the things they can and letting go of things that hold them back.


My name is Beverley Clay, founder and Director of Optimos Coaching. I created the name 'Optimos' as a blend of two words; 'Optimism' and 'Possibility'. My thinking and experience is that there is always a way forward; it doesn't have to be comfortable. There is also the possibility of things changing if we decide to take responsibility for the things we can change.

I am a life coach with a focus on Working with women.

I am passionate in working with women who feel disappointed with life but remain hopeful, ambitious and inquisitive. Change is always possible if knowledge, and tools are consistently applied, developing the necessary skills and habits to take you to where you want to be.

You may experience anxiety, frustration, or feeling stuck personally or professionally. Fear and anxiety may lead you to self sabotaging behaviour and attitudes which then become a pattern for your life. You recognise this but do not understand why you do this or know how to change.

Your motivation for change in your life is inconsistent

I can help.

How I work with You.

I will work with you to identify what are the really important qualities in your life and how you use these to work for you. I will help you explore and understand how the way you think and what you believe impacts the actions you take. This is done through asking specific questions and having a conversation to help you identify what is fundamental for you in living your best life. You will embrace your significance and self-worth, taking action to transform your life, achieving your hopes and dreams.

You will grow your confidence, embrace your inner strength and unique worth and have strategies for managing your life, seizing opportunities to create the life you want.

I work online or by phone making sessions accessible regardless of location.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Personal Performance Coaching with The Coaching Academy and have been coaching for three years.

Prior to coaching I have worked in health and social care with women from all walks of life in enabling them to embrace their value and self-worth, confidently taking control of their lives.

I have worked as a nurse for many years in both physical and mental health and have life experience as well as training to enable me in working with you.

Part of my experience is as a senior manager in small to medium organisations (SME) for 17 years. I have experience in business to enable you on your own business journey.
