Hi, I’m Claire and I’m a qualified career and leadership coach. If you’re feeling stuck and frustrated at work, or need some help supporting your employees with their careers and performance, I can help.

After 20 years in HR, I became increasingly frustrated seeing so many people get in the way of their career success, and ultimately business success. Self-limiting beliefs, imposter syndrome, behavioural blind spots, poor leadership skills, and a lack of emotional intelligence, all regularly get in the way of people stepping up and taking others with them.

I’m passionate about bringing my skills and experience to help people get the best out of themselves. To understand what holds them back and help them push through the obstacles to get the career they want and deserve, benefiting the business bottom line while they thrive and not just survive.

Through 1:1 or group coaching, I provide dedicated support and challenge. By creating space, listening, and powerful questioning, I help my clients find the confidence and motivation to step out of their comfort zone.

Happy Clients…

Claire’s coaching helped me through the personal and professional leadership challenges of 2020 and helped me to get clear on goals for the future. I really appreciated Claire’s friendly and supportive approach and her knack of knowing when to challenge and push me. Thank you Claire for helping me to figure out what I want next in work and life.

Like so many others, I read the fabulous article by Adam Grant in the New York Times entitled "There’s a Name for the Blah You’re Feeling: It’s Called Languishing". It resonated on many levels. It also made me realise that I needed to act on a few things that have been on my mind over recent months. To help me out, pulling various strings together and providing the focus I needed, I turned to Claire. We engaged in a series of fortnightly sessions and she helped me achieve what I set out to do in terms of re-engaging on specific goals and provided sound advice that I'll continue to rely upon. If anyone has read the Languishing article and recognised themselves in it, or is feeling a general lack of focus, I highly recommend getting in touch with Claire to see what she can do.

I have found the experience of my coaching sessions with Claire positive, not only in helping me to identify, frame and clarify key personal development objectives but also offering practical tools, techniques and suggestions to achieve them. Claire provided a combination of business coaching with in-depth psychological knowledge. Her flexible and objective approach, with the right balance of support and challenge, enabled me to see a clearer path in achieving my personal development goals. I would have no hesitation in recommending Claire – she is insightful, a great listener, and an extremely accomplished coach and mentor.
