My experience in HR led me to be passionate about working with individuals to enable them to achieve their lthe next step on their journey. I believe that everyone has the creativity and potential to get where they want to be and I have been privileged to work with entrepreneurs at the beginning of their careers and people who have needed me at a time when they have faced challenging situations.
My Coaching Style
I am a patient and calm coach and I use my compassion and humour to put people at ease. My naturally intuitive style allows me to encourage and challenge indiviuduals to reflect on situations and create realistic and achievable next steps.
How Coaching Can Help
Coaching can help if you are trying to make a big change in your life, having someone there to provide a goal setting structure and to motivate you as you navigate a new path ensures that there is a higher chance of your change being a success. Be this either a change in job/career or a change in behaviour.
Coaching can also provide you with a new self awareness and understanding. Personal values are an integral part of how and why we make day to day and long term decisions. Clarifying what these are can be very powerful in leveraging skills and strengths and enhancing your ability to learn.
I recently coached a client who, at the end of our session said 'Clare, thank you, I no longer feel so overwhelmed'. She looked less stressed and her body language told me that she now had the energy to move forward. It is moments like these that make me believe that everyone should have access to a coach.
Clients I Work With
I have worked with clients who are: Managing a New Adventure - a career change, new job and specifically preparing for interviews; Managing Adversity - redundancy, a difficult situation/conflict in or out of the workplace; Managing Work/Life Balance - strugglying with feeling overwhelmed, lack of confidence/increasing resilience.
What to Expect in your First Session
Firstly, you can expect me to put you at ease! I will explain how I coach, how our time together will work and find out from you what your expectations are and what you want to achieve from our sessions. I am curious and will ask questions about the different options you may have as you decide which step to take next on your journey.
Contact Me to Find Out More
I always like to spend 30 minutes with my clients before we start the official coaching process. This way you can discover if my style of coaching is right for you. Please contact me so that we can arrange a time to talk. I have successfully coached over zoom since March 2020 but am also available to coach face-to-face.

"Thank you Clare Frankland for another BRILLIANT coaching session! So grateful for Clare - She has such an excellent style! She keeps things light hearted and positive, while challenging me and encouraging new information and insights out of me. I learned so much about myself and I enjoyed every minute of it too!"
"Clare helped me prepare for an interview. Her friendly and easy going manner really put me at ease. It helped me so much as I was able to say out loud all the different scenarios in my head. I definitely felt much more confident than I would have done without her. I was also over the moon to get the job! I highly recommend Clare and will consider her for other aspects of life that are challenging. "
"Clare helped me with some interviewing preparation and it made such a difference to my confidence. We spent over an hour working through answers to a variety of questions and scenarios based on Clare's experience as an interviewer and looking at the job description for the role. I went into the interview with an idea of what to expect and was thrilled when I was offered the job!
"Clare has a great creative style and I found her easy to talk to. I've come away with more clarity and I've successfully thought through my issue. I'm happy to have reached a way forward!"
"I felt so comfortable with Clare. She really listened to me and we really connected so that we could honestly discuss all my future options."
