About Claire
I am one of the UK’s first accredited Break up and Divorce Coaches, an Advanced NLP practitioner, former lawyer, and mum to two boys. I bring all my personal and professional experience to my work, so that I can be the very best coach I can be for you.
My own divorce 10 years ago was sudden and brutal. I had no idea what to do, and I found myself facing an uncertain future, full of fears and doubts. The one thing I did know was that I didn't want to sink. I wanted to swim. I didn’t want my divorce to define me.
Divorce coaching did not really exist then, and I found it a challenge to find support and non-judgemental guidance - not something I want others to experience. I worked out my own path through, and I am immensely proud that I handled my divorce with dignity, strength and resilience. I don't want anyone to go through their divorce alone. I am passionate about helping others to handle the emotional roller coaster of divorce, and move forward positively towards healing and recovery.
I believe that it is not what happens to you that makes the difference; it’s what you do with what happens to you that matters. You too have the choice to let your divorce define you, or to do things differently, and consciously put yourself back in the driving seat of your life.
"Claire helped me to reframe and see my situation in a manageable and intelligent way, so that I could rationalise what I was experiencing. This has helped me greatly and I cannot thank her enough."
(J, Portishead)
"I found my session with you today very helpful and as you say I am feeling lighter. I like your comment about it’s what we do with what happens to us that is important and it helps me feel more in charge of my future and less inclined to feel I'm just at the brunt end of something. My action plan is giving me a focus already."
(G, Bath)
"Thank you so much for equipping me with some much needed solutions. I have been trying to put into practice what we discussed, wearing a band to ping every time I had a negative thought! I had a lovely walk yesterday and gratefully admired the beautiful view I seemed to not see properly before. I really appreciate all the helpful and useful information you gave me and I am making the changes you suggest."
(J, Bristol)
"Thank you for your help. It has been a positive step for me, and I feel all the better for it. I have added loads to my gratitude list, and added to my action plan too. Thank you once again, you are a positive influence!"
(S, Somerset)
"Claire did some amazing transformational coaching with me and enabled me to see my situation from a different perspective, which I am already experiencing the benefits of. Claire brings empathy, compassion and clarity to her coaching work, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is wanting to make changes in their life. Claire is a gifted coach."
(H, Bristol)
