You’re an ambitious creative soul, values led entrepreneur or heart centred high achiever (perhaps you’re all three!)
- You have a vision, you have goals and you’re completely committed to creating your best life and being a source for good in the world by sharing your gifts.
- You may be in transition, or at a cross roads wanting to up level in some way and you’ve noticed yourself getting stuck.
- Perhaps you’re not following through on deadlines, you’re finding yourself procrastinating and putting things off (even though you may have hired a business coach!)
- Perhaps you’ve found you’ve burned out yet again and you’re lacking the energy to motivate yourself, and your old tools aren’t working so well.
- You may need to pitch a project, ask for that raise or increase your rates to make your business more sustainable, but you’re lacking the confidence to have that awkward money chat.
- You may be overwhelmed and stressed out about the next phase. You’re doing battle with the voice in your head that tells you you’re not good enough, and that maybe you should just give up.
These are common issues and can be sorted out! I would love to help you get unstuck and back into your flow. The world needs what you have to offer. I want to teach you how to Thrive doing what you love!
I’m a Coach, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Master NLP practitioner and Artist. I’m also completely in love with Yogic Philosophy, Meditation and Energy Psychology. I’m known for my positive energy, sense of humour and down to earth approach! And just like you I have a burning desire to live my best life!
I believe that the only thing between you and a life you love are old outdated ways of being in the world, such as overwhelm, lack of confidence, self doubt and cycles of fear and burnout.
ALL is possible when you connect with the wisdom of your heart, and learn to work with and influence your mind and body in extraordinary ways.
What does this mean for you?
I understand the strengths and the struggles of the creative, entrepreneurial and ambitious mind, because I’ve had to work through them all myself!
I know how to help you get calm, confident, energised and focused! I will give you clear direction and support you to THRIVE.
Through my 12 years of experience, I can quickly pin point exactly what’s holding you back and provide you with a very clear and effective strategy to get you unstuck and back on track.
As a child my favourite thing to do was write stories for my friends about all the adventures they would experience living their dream lives. These stories were often accompanied by drawings, paintings and poetry! Fast forward 20 years and I’m a Coach and Artist helping people like you around the world to live their best lives and become their best, most authentic selves in the process.
This was not always the case; there have been some significant obstacles to face in my own personal journey to freedom and fulfilment.
The Big Obstacle
In my early 20’s plagued by anxiety and self doubt I lost sight of who I was and mistakenly thought I needed to live the life that others expected of me. I promptly parked my Creative dreams and went to work in a Brokerage in the Financial Sector or the City of London. To ‘make it’ I thought I needed to push through, work harder, ignore my well being and turn a blind eye to my secret wants and needs. This had dire consequences for my health and life. I became chronically fatigued, stressed and disconnected from my heart and Soul.
Thankfully I am 100% recovered now! The longing to be well, happy and successful catapulted me onto a profound journey of healing and self-discovery, where I resolved blocks such as Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety and Depression and learned exactly what I personally need to THRIVE in this Life!
I’ve been lucky enough to meet incredible teachers and learned transformative mind/body solutions, which have shifted me from a destructive spiral of stress and illness to reconnecting with vibrant health, positive energy, and my Creative Flow. I’ve been through such a profound personal transformation that I’ve dedicated the last 12 years to helping others do the same!
Where I am today
Sometimes it blows my mind when I look at where I was, to where I am now – all the adventures I’ve had, all the love and abundance in my life, the strong connection to my creative flow and how fulfilling I find my work and my business. Of course like any other human I still have challenges, but I deal with them in a completely different way then before- meaning that any struggle actually turns into positive growth!
I feel very grateful to Life for showing me the way, even though some of the lessons have been difficult to go through. The good news is that because I have encountered so many of my own blocks and come through the other side of them – it makes me a very sensitive, knowledgeable and effective guide for you as you traverse you own “path less travelled.”
I’m completely committed to your success. I fiercely believe that the world needs what you have to offer and that achieving your dreams doesn’t have to be so hard, draining, or so full of sacrifice. I actually believe that when YOU thrive, your life, your work, your relationships – EVERYTHING – thrives as a consequence! I want to help you to do this!
With my practical guidance, explanation of exactly how your mind and body works, step-by-step action plans, and tools to help you switch into positive states of mind and body, I will help you live your best life! I’m so excited to work with you!
The Values I live and work by:
Gratitude as a path to Joy
Faith in Life, Love and a Higher Creative Truth
Do your best work and live your best Life!

Claire has been a wonderful source of support for me. The entire experience was transformative for me as a person and I can’t thank Claire enough for all her help. I was having problems with self compassion and the fear of anything positive coming my way. I found myself falling into a constant cycle of giving up and falling into a negative place quite often, even when things were going very well for me.
Claire helped me source the root of my fears and negative emotions and then went through daily practises that I could make use of which at first seemed odd but then became almost second nature. The best part was realising how easy it became, and seeing that for the longest time I was feeling great, no fears just gratitude. Appreciating the beauty that came by way rather than focusing on fears and worries.
I’d recommend Claire to anyone who feels they could use some help in negative habits and thought behaviour. This has been truly life changing. Thank you Claire.
