Claudia Boers - PCC (ICF) certified life and leadership coach
Are your thoughts and behaviours holding you back? Do you feel stuck or frequently anxious … or even your own worst enemy sometimes?
Through sharing different ways of looking at the world and revealing new possibilities, I can help you to:
Identify and shift out of unhelpful moods such as anxiety, frustration or hopelessness
Understand what will take care of you best
Have more effective yet respectful conversations in your work and personal life
Develop new or improved life and leadership skills
Learn how to do all of this for yourself so you can continue creating your own meaningful and successful life.
The result? An empowering shift in your thinking and actions that will help you get to where you want to be.
I became a coach to help people see and access their amazing potential. I love watching people overcome fear, get unstuck and embrace new possibilities.
I know how much courage it takes to step into a place of self-reflection and expansion. You will have my guidance, support and encouragement.
I’m not a ‘fixer’ or advice-giver, but rather a partner who listens and asks questions that may open you to new or different ways of thinking and acting.
Sometimes the process is difficult and sometimes it’s lots of fun. Whatever’s unfolding, I bring warmth and humour to our sessions.
My own life changed for the better after seeing a coach myself. He helped me find the courage to follow my heart and leave behind a 20-year career in corporate retail. This turned out to be one of the most empowering decisions I ever made.
I chose to specialize in ontological coaching because I believe it's the most profound and effective coaching methodology available. What you learn and how you learn it allows for deep self-awareness and real long-term, sustainable change.

If my fees are workable, I’d be happy to meet for a complimentary ‘chemistry session’? This would be chance for us to meet online with a cup of coffee, have a chat and see whether I am the right coach for you.
“My coaching sessions with Claudia took me on rigorous learning journey that became a life-changing experience. I especially valued her insight, integrity and humour.” — Ian, Research Project Manager, United Nations.
“Claudia has changed my life forever. After years and years of struggling with anxiety, and strongly believing that I would never be able to overcome it, I found Claudia. With her incredibly gifted and non-judgmental way of coaching, she guided me and gave me real tools and new ways of thinking. Claudia enabled me to overcome my very debilitating state of anxiety.” — Yolande' Odendaal, Business Accountant
“I’ve had many years of psychology and therapy around this issue, and whilst that’s helped somewhat, it was my sessions with Claudia that really penetrated the mind-body patterns that weren’t serving me. Both the realizations and awareness that I came to during the sessions, as well as the practical mind and body strategies that we devised for me to practice in my own time, caused the internal change I’ve wanted for so long. I’m forever grateful to Claudia and her coaching style.” — Sally, Physiotherapist
