March 2019 Fire Service Employee – Mind Blue Light Stress Awareness programme

Clare is so lovely, she made me feel at ease and she really knows what she’s doing! She has given me tips on how to relax, manage my stress levels and helped me learn to listen to my body.
Throughout the mindful reflexology sessions she helped me fully relax and was able to tell me what was going on with my body – things I didn’t even notice myself, due to being so tense.
I would definitely recommend Clare. She’s friendly, professional and goes that extra mile for her clients.
Thanks so much Clare 😊

Clare conveys a warm and friendly persona with an engaging caring, honest nature which totally built up my trust and respect; in a comfortable, relaxed environment, that allowed me to feel safe and sound to express my inner most feelings.
Coaching sessions has given me the fore sight in building my confidence within myself, to see my strengths and abilities in my professional life and my own self worth in work and home life. 
Enabled me to clarify my own morals and principles; it’s gentle manner like timeline methods allowed me to strip back my walls of defence from years of feeling inadequate, closing off people and situations to really explore when I started to feel fear, anger, irritation and stress so allowing the real expression of my emotions and reduce my anxiety levels. Its given me so much confidence in my own abilities to succeed, accepting me; and to be true to me; not allowing other people’s opinions and perceptions weigh on me.
Thank you Clare, I have gained so much insight and tools to see me through tough times, there will always be peaks and troughs but knowing I will cope is invaluable.

 

May 2018 Grant Thornton, Cardiff 

Clare visited us during Mental Health Awareness Week in May of this year to provide massages to staff. At the point of setting up her equipment I realised that the day was going to be fantastic as Clare decorated the room with various ambience setting equipment such as an atomiser, blankets, ornaments, mood lighting and information, creating a lovely relaxing space.

The massages themselves were amazing, a few staff members were a bit apprehensive about a massage at work but Clare put everyone at ease offering them the chair or bed to rest on and providing 15 minutes of bliss for all who opted for the service. Throughout the day Clare was friendly, professional and a calming influence for employees, everyone was extremely impressed at how effective the mini massages were as they floated out of the designated room and remained in ‘the zone’ for the rest of the day!

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend or hire Clare again at Grant Thornton Cardiff.  

 

May 2017 Jobseeker

I was going around in circles searching for the right job. Clare listened and then asked the right questions to help me make sense of what I really wanted, unravel my complex thoughts into revealing what I was really looking for. Thereby enabling me to focus and how to achieve getting there both in the short and longer term and ultimately reaching my goals. Moving forward with a clear mind has felt so refreshing! I would definitely recommend Clare as a coach, if you feel stuck and need help to gain some clarity again. I will be Skyping Clare to keep me on track. Grahame

I was really unsure of what to expect, from my first life coaching session with Clare. But I needn’t have worried, as with her professionalism and empathy she made me feel that I was somebody and not the failure as I felt in myself. I came home feeling exhausted, but eager to achieve the challenges and to finally succeed at long-standing personal goals.
Clare is extremely personable and has the ability to connect with her clients quickly and to begin work with them at whatever stage they’re in at the time. She is always encouraging, patient and has an insightful guide through life experiences in pursuit of goals and dreams. She has a versatile tool box that can help anyone gain clarity, make great change, and create next steps while having a supportive ear by your side.
Working with Clare, I’ve achieved career objectives, improved personal and professional relationships, and found greater balance in my life. Her techniques allowed my strengths to be realized, my journey to be appreciated and a greater sense of purpose to be obtained. I am a more confident and fulfilled individual today as a result of Clare’s coaching. My sessions with her helped me truly move forward with life. Thank you so much Clare x

 

March 2018 Carer for parents 

When I met Clare I was going through one of the toughest times of my life. I was suffering from stress and anxiety and just felt completely stuck and uncertain about what I wanted out of life. Instantly Clare was able to help me make sense of things, and address some habits and routines that were not serving me well and compounding the situation.

Week by week with Clare’s help I was able to make breakthrough after breakthrough and also learn the skills. habits and mindset needed for my long term success and happiness.

Clare has quite simply changed my life and set me on a new path, and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking to inject more happiness, success and purpose into their lives. William

 

June 2018 Forever Living Ambassador 

After meeting Clare at an event I decided I liked her approach and was curious about how she helped people ‘unstick’ . During our first meeting over coffee Clare identified a strength of mine which could also have been holding me back. I loved the fact Clare was happy to share her ideas before engaging me as a client. In just 1 more meeting, this time a little more in depth Clare helped me discover exactly what I needed to move towards my ultimate goal. Sometimes you don’t have major sticking points or thoughts holding you back, you just need someone like Clare to hear and identify those little habits and thoughts which stop you thinking creatively and without logic.
