I can’t help but take it all in. I just love that other wordly moment when suddenly I can see things from a totally fresh perspective. I love learning and am relentlessly inquisitive yet I’m not that interested in long drawn out explanations. I prefer to cut to the chase. Get to the heart of the matter. Change it, embrace it, assimilate it or let it go.

At the same time I process things fairly deeply. And I like nothing more than getting out in nature and letting my mind free wheel. I throw it all into the pot and trust what brews. Deep down we know what’s what. It’s all about getting into the right frame of mind by asking the right questions, setting the right intention and then making your favourite beverage.

I have led a full and varied life in two countries, speak two languages, and worked on the interface of three cultures, raised a family, been an entrepreneur, overcome serious illness and had my heart broken and pieced it back together. I have been actively and passionately involved in the arts since childhood, working both in front of and behind the scenes and always driving projects forward. In order to thrive economically, I have frequently reinvented myself and so my career is a vibrant if unruly patchwork of roles and achievements. During the pandemic, I left a marketing managerial job and salary for the care sector. No regrets. I needed to make my soul happy again. And I’m excited to combine my passion and experience with my Life Coaching skills to work with you on your journey.

Qualified as a life-coach. Fully insured and a member of the Association of Coaching and validated by the AC, NCIP and CMA.

I bring my knowledge, passion and experience of facilitating creative projects and promoting artistic expression over many years to begin working with individuals and groups in a broader coaching context. I am particularly interested in helping clients to reconnect to their heart and purpose, finding their flow to a more free and authentic self-expression and discovering achievable steps that bridge their dreams to reality. Using visualisation, intuition, somatic awareness and mind-set exploration we get to the heart of the matter and move beyond the obstacles and onwards to achievement.

I’m trained in a co-creative, client-led style of coaching. Together we create a safe space that acts as a unique and unburdened sounding board, sometimes moving you to the edge of your comfort zone, where imagination and possibility know no bounds. Life coaching is not counselling and is not therapy. Together, we create tangible steps towards achievement.

I am currently working part-time with people living with dementia as a wellbeing companion and homemaker at Huntington and Langham Estate. This is rewarding and challenging work. What happens when the story breaks up and disintegrates? Well the nature, the feelings and the music remain. There is only one way forward and that is to live directly in the now.

In 2022 Claire directed the OFFIE-nominated production of Jennifer Fawcett’s Apples in Winter (Playground Theatre, London), however her career began as a child performer in the West End. She continued to work extensively as an actress on stage and screen including a season at the National Theatre. Claire then moved to France where she raised a family, ran a dance school, worked as a voice artist in Paris, worked with cultural organisations, dabbled in publishing and began writing plays.
