About me

As your coach I will work with you to make sure you can make the life changes you want to. These may be practical changes like finding a new job, relocating or establishing a better work life balance.They may be inner changes like wanting to feel more confident, less stressed or happier in life. 'Coaching sessions with Clare are like a spa for the mind!' A.M.

Coaching helps you work out what you want to change, what you need to do now to make it happen and gives you the tools and techniques to ensure you can sustain things in the future. 'Clare offers clients a magnetic blend of her lovely, warm, friendly, natural manner, combined with an intelligent, sensitive application of the many powerful tools in her professional toolkit'
Georgia Litherland

I have always been delighted by the transformation that happens for people during coaching.  What I love about it is the way it puts you back in the centre of your life and fills you with an ongoing sense of confidence, purpose and progress. 'I always feel really buoyant after our sessions, like i’m walking on air' D.Howat

I would love to help you discover what coaching can do for you so give me a call on 07751 905217 for a free consultation and then you can decide how you'd like to move forwards.

'If you are wondering whether to contact Clare, I say, go for it. Lift that phone and decide to change your life for the better' Gail.M

Training, qualifications & experience

I was a manager in Higher Education for 15 years before setting up my coaching practice in 2011. I have always loved supporting people to develop, acquire new skills and progress. Coaching was a natural next step for me as I wanted to help people be happier, more confident and get more out of life.

I have coached numerous private clients, managers within organisations and I also train people to become coaches and to develop a coaching style of management.

I hold a BA Modern Languages, a Diploma in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and a Diploma in Life Coaching (LCH) accredited by the OCN and the International Institute of Coaching. I am currently studying for an MCert in Coaching and Mentoring. I work with other coaches in my area and continue to develop my own learning to make sure my practice is as current and energised as possible. I am a member of the European Mentoring and Coaching Council and adhere to their code of ethics.

Handling conflict
Work Life Balance
