I am pragmatic, calm and questioning. I aim to understand individuals in a complete sense. I am not looking for easy every-day coaching - I help facilitate change effectively and enable individuals and teams to cope with this, maintain momentum - and enjoy what they do (most of the time!)
I coach based on what I see in front of me. I will question and push you to think and make decisions. It is all done though with a smile and with a sense of you feeling able to share and know that I shall treat what you share, with the greatest respect.
Spending time with Clare and with her quiet consideration analysing the issues that I had, has made me face my fears, prioritise those concerns and redevelop the skills I thought I had lost. The job hasn’t changed, my approach to the job has.

Clare questioned without making you feel that she was making judgments and allowed me the time to self-reflect and come to conclusions with her guidance. She approaches the task in a professional manner without making you feel it is stuffy and clinical.

Clare is a truly excellent coach. Easy to talk to, she quickly gains an understanding of you as a person, where you are at in your life and work and what you need to do going forward.

A Womans Work
I was invited to join a group of inspiring women who have all started, grown and developed their own successful businesses; not without facing many challenges. The purpose of this eclectic group coming together, was to write a book! A book designed to inspire others starting out in business; women - and men! Each chapter is written by a different person, reflecting on some of their career experiences, through the lens of a particular skill. My chapter (7), shares a little of my business story and how vital networking has been to me - and still is. I hope that it provides some inspiration and tips to help you to network with ease, to take your own business forward.
QUESTIONING > LISTENING > THINKING > ENABLING
Whether working with an individual, team or wider business; coaching or developing marketing strategy – these are the key words to explain how I approach working with you. Questioning is where it all begins and the aim is to enable you to deliver your objectives – with some focused listening and considered thinking, in between.
