Mindset & Life Coach
I work with fabulous people to help them rediscover, or find for the first time, their excitement and motivation to reach their goals and intentions. To step out of self-defeating thought processes and into the life they truly desire.
Over my 56 years in this wonderful world I have learnt that I am enough. I have all that I need within me. And you have too.
I'm imperfect. I eat meat, drink coffee and I eat more cake than is wise. I get irritable when people push in front of me, chew loudly or talk during a TV show or movie. I'm as screwed up, insecure and impatient as anyone. I am human.
And I love this imperfect, messy, exhilarating human experience.
I'm happy! I do not fear the negative emotions that sometimes accompany us on our journey through life.
I chose to be a coach so that I could help clients find their magic, become friends with their imperfections and love their life.
YOU have everything you need inside of you but, sometimes, it's not so easy to find it on your own.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from coaching at all.
Going into the first session with Claire I felt like an onion, slightly dusty, with a bit of a tough outer layer and a little unsure whether coaching, AND me, would be to my taste.
In my onion state, after the first session, I felt I had been dusted off and a few of my outer layers had been gently peeled away.
Now that our coaching series has ended, I no longer feel like an onion, I feel more like a beautiful pass the parcel gift. As each session moved on, a layer was removed, with each layer presenting a small gift from Claire, resulting in the final beautiful gift at the end, which is always the best of them all.
I learnt to determine which of my thoughts are valuable and which are not. To let go of some resistance and that it’s okay to do what I want to do. I’m thinking with more clarity. Many of the topics and strategies we discussed are becoming second nature and natural.
All this talk about presents, Claire certainly has a gift for coaching.

It has been a privilege to coach with Claire and I am so grateful for her compassion, guidance and patience. Claire’s manner and warmth set me at ease from our very first session. I felt heard, supported and reassured.
I came to realise most of my problems and blockers to achieving my goals were anxieties I had created in my head; they were not based in fact. When I removed these the relief I felt, and the progress I made, accelerated. I now know that I am a kind, compassionate, funny woman who needs to give myself a break sometimes and remember that the love of others does not define me, I define me.
I found the three month coaching series to be the perfect length. The two-week spaces between the sessions were long enough to make progress but short enough to retain focus.
Claire is an excellent Life Coach, this is definitely a calling for her. I now feel able to branch out with new found care of my wellbeing, self-worth and relationships with those close to me.
Claire Wilkinson, Lincoln, England
Right from the start Claire helped me to define my goals and, instead of them seeming to be unobtainable, worked with me in such a way as to make them something that I was eager to get started on.
Claire helped me to see the whole process as something joyous and exhilarating – rather than an arduous uphill climb! I found myself excited to get going. Claire was instrumental in working with me to set a realistic path to achieving my goals. She encouraged me throughout, and each time I felt daunted she showed me that with some planning and taking things step by step I would be able to make some real progress with some personal aspirations which I have wanted to pursue for many years but have avoided for fear of failure.
After each session I found myself with renewed inspiration and a real sense of achievement as we celebrated each milestone no matter how small.
At the end of the sessions I had achieved more than I had ever expected to and was left with a completely different mindset than I had at the beginning. One of positivity and a sense of certainty and confidence that my aims were well within my reach.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Claire as a life coach if you are looking for someone to help you and cheer you on as you embark on a journey to recognising and achieving goals that just wont stop nagging you!

I'm excited to offer a three month coaching series, which includes seven one-hour coaching sessions (every two weeks) and email access throughout.
With my support you will create inspirational, challenging and achievable goals that are tailor-made for you. We'll set specific actions along the way to empower and enthuse you.
Three months will give you time to reflect, visualise and achieve your desired goals and create the life you truly desire.
I'm also delighted to offer a 90 minute Silver Bullet coaching session, with a 30 minute follow up two to three weeks later, and email support throughout.
There are various meanings attached to ‘Silver Bullet’. From “a simple solution” to “something that acts as a magical weapon, especially one that instantly solves a long-standing problem”.
I believe the magic is within you and I'd be honoured to help you find it.
