About me

My name is Claire and I am an emotional well-being coach. I offer both 121, group and app programs, in person and virtually, and a warm, friendly and non-judgemental space for you to talk through any personal issues you would like to work on. I help to empower individuals to strive for their own personal development. By breaking down limiting beliefs we can let go of the past and transform negative thoughts, feelings and behaviours into calm and confidence through bespoke coaching techniques – it is really all about you and tailoring our sessions to your specific needs.

I love supporting people who are wanting a lifestyle change, to create habits that will stick. So many people have recently come to me wanting support around changing their career or career progression. What we actually find is as well as looking at the career, there are often limiting beliefs around self-esteem or self worth to work through first to allow the shift into noticing opportunities for growth. Mindset is key and I love working on the practical aspects as well as a bit of delving into what drives decision making and what really lights you up. To be truly passionate  about a job makes such a difference to our lives.

Since Lockdown last year I have been running workplace webinars and group coaching to companies to support staff well-being. Staff well-being policies are being reviewed constantly in the ever changing environment with some companies considering long term changes. I am in the process of launching a membership platform for companies to help with this. Linking up with a fitness company, we will be offering fitness as well as emotional well-being packages, all accessible at a time that suits you from an app portal. This will allow you access to tools for self help around well-being, free monthly challenges, webinars around key themes like preventing burnout, how to make time in your week for what matters, how to stop overthinking and re-frame thoughts from negative to positive, how to improve sleep to name just a few.  If your interested please register your interest with me and book a call as it is going to launch in June and would love to discuss your business needs.

I am visible on all social media platforms, please feel free to connect https://linktr.ee/Inspireyouwellbeing.

I'm running a FREE 4 day sleep challenge in my facebook group 29th March which I would love you to join. It will be available after in the guides. I was very aware how many people are struggling with sleep at the moment and want to help you get some practical tips to get back on track.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained as a Life Coach, Master Practitioner in NLP, Solution Focused Practitioner, EMDR, CBT, REBT, Behaviour Activation. I am also trained in Play Therapy and a qualified social worker.

I set up private practice in 2008/2009 when a friend suggested it over a glass of wine! Little did I know the journey I was about to embark on. I have had 2 children since and after returning to work in Autumn 2019 I made a decision that 2020 would be the year I developed my business. I rebranded in February little did I know what was in store! This pandemic has been a catalyst for me developing my business in ways I never even knew existed.

I have always worked employed and self-employed having worked in the council for 10 years and NHS mental health teams for the last 5 as well as other jobs in voluntary sector organisations. I am leaving the NHS this year and going solo and feel so passionate and excited about the journey ahead!

I have such a drive and passion to help support you and utilise all my skills and experience to create an integrated bespoke package designed to get you the goals that you desire.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a life coach's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the life coach to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
