About me

I'm Claire Norburn, a professional Career and Leadership Coach & Mentor and I'm passionate about helping people get the best out of themselves and their teams at work.

Before I moved into Coaching, I spent 20+ years in a variety of senior HR roles in the Financial Services sector, so I know first-hand the challenges that come with corporate life and the anxiety that can go with them. 

Providing coaching, mentoring, and insight from the perspective of a seasoned HR specialist, I work with both individual clients and organisations.

For individual clients, I specialise in helping you get out of your own way and overcoming the barriers to success in your career. Whether that's navigating a career crossroads and working out how to make purposeful career choices; building confidence, managing imposter syndrome, and overcoming the unhelpful inner mind chatter that can hold you back. My job is to build your self-awareness to help you see that you are good enough and that you can do this.

I also work with organisations, providing 1:1 coaching for employees, or team/group coaching. I strongly believe the success of any business comes from its people and that is ultimately driven by the leaders who guide the way. Balancing the demands of fast-moving business needs and managing people to get the best out of them is not easy. At times, leadership can be hard, uncomfortable and a lonely place to be. Coaching with me provides a safe space for leaders to explore challenges and move forward. Building leadership and communication skills and developing that all-important emotional intelligence.

My clients describe my coaching style as empathetic, thoughtful, and supportive, but with a straight-talking, solution-focused and challenging approach - with a healthy dose of humour along the way! Ultimately, I aim to challenge the unhelpful beliefs that hold you back and help you stop, regroup, think, explore, and reflect to gain new perspectives and find your right way to move forward. 

As well as being a qualified Professional Coach and NLP Practitioner, I also hold Chartered Member level accreditation with the CIPD (Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development).

If you’d like to talk about how I can help you, or your business move forward with confidence and unlock potential, please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.

Or, if you'd like to know a bit more about me, you can find me on LinkedIn, where I frequently share my thoughts and advice.
