During the first session, I was clueless as to what I was doing or wanted to do. Claire gave me a sense of direction towards what I wanted to achieve through her focused, tailored approach. Her “what else” questions motivated me to think deeper and highlighted the importance of self-realisation and having a structured view to attain my goal. I would like to thank her for her support throughout and helping me gain insight into my career and personal achievements during my journey with her.

I feel this experience will stay with me. Claire’s coaching helped me in my life overall, as well as in my career.


I would 100% recommend Claire as a coach – there has been a marked difference in terms of where I am now as to when I first started working with her. One of my aims was to raise my public profile and a lot of people have since commented that it has “taken a massive turn in the last 12 months”. I believe this is down to Claire’s coaching and I am very thankful to her!
