Case Study - Katherine's Story

What do you do when your life changes as a result of redundancy?

Katherine came to Claire at the start of her coach training journey. She'd taken a major confidence hit following redundancy and was looking to take the leap into the world of coaching and needed to expedite the process of setting up her own business and undertaking her diploma. She knew that she needed some coaching to inspire her and support her in taking some risks and navigating the somewhat messy world of  being a solopreneur.

Claire has worked with me in an integrative way blending coaching methodologies alongside some mentoring which was perfect. She has a dynamic and faster paced style of coaching which means you can achieve results…and quickly! Her strength in building excellent relationships shines through, she remembers the small details and her clients are the number one priority. I’ve always felt proud when mentioning I’m being coached by Claire.

On a personal level, Claire has instilled a sense of confidence in me in that I know that I am on-track with where I need to be. She inspires me to see the good myself and focus on my strengths and all the positives. On a professional level, I’ve gained amazing momentum in setting up my coaching business which means that I am in a position to start making money and hit the ground running.

I’ve set up a limited company, built a website and almost completed my coaching accreditation in just 3 months. I definitely would not have been able to do this in such a short timescale without the coaching from Claire and accountability for my actions (of which there were always many to take away each session!)

 I’m essentially operating as a full time coach and business owner in advance of achieving my accreditation. If you’d have asked me whether I would be in this position when I left my job the answer would have been “absolutely not”. I can now take away a great deal of confidence in my business, marketing and coaching skills as well as an improved self-awareness


Claire is the coach for you if you are looking for someone who can help you work through change and growth without the faff or fluff. She’ll be alongside you every step of the way, keeping you accountable for your actions and providing a kind listening ear too.

My experience of working with Claire has been Dynamic. Fun. Enjoyable.

Claire builds rapport through getting to the heart of the individual; what makes them tick, what their values are and how they operate. She then uses this knowledge to adapt her coaching environment to the individual providing challenge and honesty where needed. You can trust that Claire wants the best for all her clients, whatever that looks like for them as an individual. If you’re thinking of working with Claire, don’t hesitate; it’ll be a decision you won’t regret
