My programmes are designed with“YOU” in mind
My programmes have guaranteed success, however you have to remain 100% committed to achieve success. I will facilitate the discussions and you MUST take the action. Along your journey of self discovery you will also gain value tools to support your future development.
Before I started to work with Claire, I was always busy but not always productive. I wanted to do everything at once. I had loads of motivation, ideas and energy but lacked the real skill of prioritising to make the best out of all this.
I connected with Claire from the very outset and she answered all my questions in the initial discovery call. For me, good rapport is essential, and I needed someone who I could trust. I knew Claire would not hold any punches and really make me think about not only what and how I was doing things but why.
I had monthly coaching sessions. Claire’s role was not to hold me to account but to help me hold myself more accountable. Empowering me to be responsible for the choices I made, and my actions or inaction was very important.
My DISC profile was a brilliant start and I felt straight away that Claire understood what motivated me.
Monthly sessions allowed me the time and space to think and take action. Claire’s careful questioning and expert listening skills ensured I got the most out of each session. I have had more employed work from an area I least expected and this goes back to my why. By focusing on one thing instead of my usual 10 allowed me to explore more productively in an area that has since brought me more regular paid work. I would have missed this opportunity before. I am more focused, more productive, and even happier than before. I feel like the whole coaching experience was the springboard to my success. I would highly recommend Claire.
I had recently started a coaching business & knew some of the theory of what I should be doing to get clients, but I didn't know where to focus first. I also knew I needed to do some things that might be out of my comfort zone and wanted someone to challenge me a little, and hold me to account.
I had already attended the Client Attraction Strategy course and knew that Claire's approach would be very helpful to me.
Each time I met with Claire, I came away with a different perspective on things, and lots of practical actions to move me forward.
I now have much more confidence in my ability to market my coaching business, I'm seeing results and have a plan for moving forward.
I first met Claire through enquiring about 3 Shires Coaching Group. I’m a person who truly believes we meet people for a reason and I knew straight away I wanted Claire to Coach me.
She came across warm, authentic, genuine, personable and kind from the first words that came out of her mouth but also came across professional too which was exactly what I was needing at that time.
I have been a coach myself for over 12 years but I had a breakdown over a year ago which really affected me which meant I couldn’t work within my own coaching company (I’m a big believer we cannot work from an empty cup especially as a coach).
For the past year I had been working on myself and healing and eventually a few months ago I felt ready to get back into the job I loved. As you can imagine being a coach myself for that long I wasn’t going to work with just any coach, but like I said above, I knew Claire was exactly what I needed to help build me and my confidence back up and help me believe in myself and my own abilities again.
Claire did not disappoint, she has delivered on everything we agreed and understood me for me and what I wanted from the sessions. Claire has a lovely way about her but also keeps very professional all at the same time.
Claire has helped me with structure and helped me see my own worth again.
Thank You Claire for helping me get back to the real me again and back to being a great coach again. It takes a coach to recognise another great coach and it was a challenging job but you did it. Highly recommend.

Over the past two years at work, I was gradually noticing high levels of disengagement and a lack of motivation and confidence. This led to a breakdown in communication between myself and my manager. The situation escalated due to the national lock-down and I began to feel isolated and unhappy at work.
Luckily, my manager recognised my decline, and reached out to Claire for external help.
Through coaching sessions with Claire, we identified various contributing factors. This included a loss of direction in my role and a job title that did not properly represent my responsibilities and contributions to a small but growing team.
Claire used my DISC personality profile, SWOT analysis and motivation outcomes to improve my self-awareness, which has enabled better communication with my manager. This has allowed us to openly discuss my situation and we are working together to address the issues identified through my coaching sessions.
I have regained confidence and motivation, and finally feel more like myself.
I was at a crossroads in my life, completely at a loss as to what to do, I felt stagnant, I was 34 and felt like I hadn’t changed much in the last 10 years. Something needed to change, but I was unsure as to what needed to change and how to do that. My husband suggested I contact Claire as John Cannon had recommended her to him and he had started up a successful business.
Once I spoke to Claire, she immediately understood me and the initial conversation was a very positive one, I immediately felt motivated and more confident that Claire was the right person to contact, my initial reservation was the cost as it sounded very expensive, however, Claire allowed me to break the cost down over 3 months and I thought you know what, lets invest in me for once rather than spending it on kids or stuff that I didn’t necessarily need. To be honest looking back it’s the best money I have spent on me!! Anyone with any reservations should just go for it!
Working with Claire has completely transformed my mindset, I now think much more positively and transformed negative thoughts to positive ones. I found it quite a difficult process at first as Claire asked me questions about myself and to ask other people questions about myself which I found to be totally out of my comfort zone, however, this process did build my confidence and made me see myself in a different light.
I am going to be launching a business in the New Year, so hopefully my financial reward will come in the near future, I wouldn’t have the confidence to start a business if it wasn’t for Claire’s encouragement and belief in myself.
My best personal outcome is spending more quality time with my family and how to continue growing and developing by making myself goals (personal and professional), no matter how big these goals were. I also learnt to break these down into smaller, more manageable goals to enable me to reach that end goal.
Prior to starting work with Claire, I had very little confidence in my ability and no focus with which to run my business effectively.
My only reservation of working with Claire was that we were friends and I wasn’t sure how this would affect our relationship, or if we could each ‘rise above’ the situation and both be professional (Claire’s part) and totally honest (my part) in discussions - I need not have worried, as Claire engenders total trust and confidentiality, so it was easy and it has made our relationship - outside of the coaching environment - even closer.
The process has been enthralling. I loved digging down and finding my values and the motivators that support them; it’s made conversations since, particularly regarding what my client-base is, or should be, very easy and I’ve found anything to the contrary does not inspire or, obviously, motivate me.
Now I know truly what my values are and, crucially, what my audience is, finding clients has been easy - in fact, they’ve found me! I have confidence in my ability and the value I bring to my clients through my services and find I’m no longer afraid to charge my worth.

After 20 years in the same career I chose to make a change. My job was not a good fit anymore. I thought long and hard about what to do next, giving myself some time out of work to acquire new skills and valuable experience in other sectors through volunteering.
When it came to looking for suitable paid roles, I struggled to feel motivated. I’m not sure if the heart-sinking feeling came from the badly-written infinite shopping list of competencies, the strange experience of being ghosted by potential employers or the straight-forward unexplained rejections.
In short… I was running out of steam, resources and confidence.
Fortunately, I found a job description which really piqued my interest. Not only could I do it: I really wanted to do it. I decided to enlist Claire Cahill at this point for some extra moral support.
The first thing I did with Claire was the DISC report. Without giving too much away I have to tell you that this is a great tool. The report confirmed that I was making the right choices and gave me further insight in to my communication style.
With added investment in my career I soon found the motivation I needed to go for the role I wanted. Reader; I got it!
The best personal result is knowing that I have made the right decision for the right reason having reconnected with my big why.
I recommend working with Claire and the diagnostic tools she has in her toolkit. With her years of experience in HR, she’s got a really good idea of what employers want and how the language of recruitment operates.
Before meeting Claire I was very lost and quite overwhelmed. I was experiencing a few issues in my new business and I really didn’t know how to work through the situation without being confrontational (which I wanted to avoid at all costs) so I was willing to walk away from a business I was very passionate about in order to prevent me from upsetting someone else’s
I don’t think I had any reservations about working with Claire because a good friend recommended her to me. I knew working with Claire was going to help, I don’t think I knew exactly how she was going to help but I knew if I surrendered myself to Claire and her expertise that it would guide me confidently in the right direction.
Working with Claire has given me accountability, it has also given me the tools to move forward. It has helped me to better understand myself, what my values are and how they affect me personally as well as in my businesses. It's has also helped me look at what I need to work on within myself and my businesses. The sessions have given me clarity about moving forward with my goals. Daily, I am now applying myself and working persistently on my goals.
The best financial result I've had is getting clients booked on to a workshop I was hosting quite quickly. I managed to fill 6 out of 8 spaces on my workshops which has resulted in those people signing up to other courses that I offer. I just did a few simple things which I used to do and had forgotten to use until Claire reminded me. Improving my processes produced almost immediate results.
I now know my values and what’s important to me. I feel more confident and reconnected to myself. It's given me my mojo back and I now know the possibilities really are endless. Realising that I can find a balance between responsibility and freedom has been great for me. I have certainly reconnected with my why and am working towards it consistently and persistently everyday. I am already seeing fabulous results which is encouraging me to do even more and above all I know I don’t have to do it all in one go. I can do it one task at a time and now feel a sense of achievement through completing tasks rather than beating myself up from not doing everything in one go.
Thankyou for all your support and encouragement moving forward. This experience has been invaluable to me and was just what I needed to help me and my businesses move forward. Without you I don’t think I would have had the courage to step forward and make the choices I did and I am so glad I did. The future is looking exceptionally positive. I also want to say thank you for all the contacts you have put me in touch with.

At the beginning of coaching I guess I was anxious and not confident in talking to Claire about my history or struggles. However, after spending the first 10 minutes with her I opened up and talked about my difficulties. These included: relationship problems, anxiety, confidence and self esteem, anger and irritability and above all, the dreaded job aspects! Interviews!!
I found the coaching sessions very valuable to my mental health and found my confidence increased. Claire raised my awareness with tools, techniques and diagrams which gave me clarity to move forward with my life and progress further quickly than if I had struggled on my own. Claire asked me what I would like to do as a job, at first I said I would like to work for CERN in Switzerland, but I knew that was far fetched, so I said I would like to work in retail. Start from the bottom and work my way up to manager or managing director. She understood and supported me to find ways on how I could achieve my goal.
After 3 weeks, Claire asked me to do a “wheel of life” diagram, this measures out of ten how happy you are in certain areas of your life. My scores were quite low as she understood the reasons, however, after 6 sessions, my scores have rapidly improved in areas I didn’t believe could be possible. I would definitely recommend Claire Cahill to anyone who is suffering with things or areas in their life that they need help with. After six sessions, she has helped me tremendously and I know she will help others like me.
I was floundering with the business side of my practice. I had little focus, direction, interest and confidence in the business admin, processes and general day to day running of my business.
I had tried coaches before but Claire was different and offered more than a sounding board and telling me to sort it myself.
We met monthly initially and then further apart as the business came together. Our meetings kept me on track, at my speed, with a bit of a push here and there.
The business has had it's best year for income and I feel my work is where I want it with possibly too many clients now. A good position to be in. Claire has helped me clarify my focus and purpose which has taken a lot of strain out of pressure as to where I am, what I should be doing and where I am heading.

Before meeting Claire, I lacked direction and needed some help to focus on what I really wanted, so I could move forward in life.
My dreams, hopes and confidence had taken a massive knock early in the year when I sadly lost my mother. Life was slowly going in a downward spiral for me and my beautiful daughter. I had lost my motivation, confidence, drive and aspirations to succeed in life. I felt lost and didn't know where or who to turn to.
I found a Goal setting course on-line and thought it may help me gain some clarity, help me re focus and start to dream again. I was very nervous and apprehensive at the thought of going into a room with strangers, I need not be because to my delight , the course was being run by Claire. I was welcomed in with a smile and a feeling that I was in the right room. When I explained why I was attending the course, Claire listened to every word and made me feel comfortable and at ease. I left that day with a little more hope and saw a spark in my eyes that I had not seen in what felt like a decade.
I knew that I had to work with Claire, so I arranged a 121 a couple of weeks later. At first I was a little worried about how I was going to afford to work with Claire, but knew I had to find the money some how and so glad I did. The first thing we worked on was my personality and how to get the best out of myself. This helped me see how and why I had started to doubt and retreat into myself. It gave me the confidence and posture to deal with the issues and people, so I could move past them. We worked on motivational factors, my core values and goal mapping too. These have helped me focus on what I want out of life, improved my mindset and helped me start unlocking the doors to mine and my daughters better future.
I cannot thank Claire enough for her empathy, kindness and for helping me see light when I was surrounded by darkness.

Before I started working with Claire I was lacking confidence and was at a time in my life where I had taken Voluntary Redundancy and was at a crossroads in my career.
I contacted Claire because I knew she was very well respected and a good person. I also wanted to start my own business and I wanted to run some ideas past her.
The reservations I had was that it can be very hard to tell someone that you have failed at interviews before, but Claire just broke it down and said the job might not be right for you. We used different processes to identify where my ambitions are and Claire coached me along, I would take away actions from our next meeting and off I would go and get things done with a spring in my step.
With Claire’s assistance I am now in a good position and looking forward to the future. I know my goals and I have a lot more confidence and just brush aside set backs and turn it into a positive.
Claire is brilliant and helped me so much at just the right time I will always be grateful thanks Claire.

I found Claire through a mutual friend on facebook because I was looking for a coach to guide me in starting my online coaching business. I was already running a full time martial arts studio and wanted it to thrive more and I wanted to connect my two businesses together. I also wanted to learn more about myself so that I could use my skills and strengths further for my business and understand myself better as a person. I had no reservation at all working with Claire and was signed up straight away. Claire and I have excellent rapport and she is amazing. I feel so much more in tune with myself and have real drive and passion from understanding myself better. My businesses are both thriving and I have increased confidence that a better and more stable financial future is ahead of me and is already building. Everything has been positive. I know myself very well now and I know how to work with my strengths and work well with myself to allow growth and thrive whilst being authentic to who I am

When you get an idea in your head and you want to turn the dream into a reality and have all this self doubt
• How could I do it?
• Where do I start?
• Where’s the money going to come from?
• How can I quit my job?
• I’m not clever enough for this.
This was when I decided I needed to work with a coach. The only reservation I had about working with Claire was spending the cost of the coaching on myself.
Claire sent me the DISC forms to complete prior to our first meeting, I found this helpful.
FaceTime coaching was easy & in the comfort of my own home.
The session on limiting beliefs has been the most insightful.
I was beginning to doubt myself. When Claire questioned me in more detail I realised that there was just one friend who was getting me down and making me feel inadequate. I have now given myself permission to ignore this person and not dwell on anything she says to me.
I feel stronger now, although I still question what am I doing? I feel empowered to do it and say just do it! I will learn what I don’t know and will bring what I do know to my new role.

The main thing I have gained as a result of my coaching journey is a sense of understanding of my own values and personality. I was beating myself up for inadequacies that were just personality traits and now I acknowledge and take them in my stride. My resilience is at an all time high and my mental and physical health has stabilised. It’s a more enjoyable journey when you get the handbook to yourself!! If I had realised that the costs had been so little in comparison to what you receive back, I would have done this years ago
The reason I sought Claire out was because I was at an all time low both professionally and personally. I had no confidence, I come across really confident with loads of personality, however it is a mask I developed after being seriously bullied at work a few years ago leading me to attempt to take my own life. It left me lacking in confidence in my ability as a mum, wife and no confidence that I could do my job.
The only reservation I had was confidentially. I don't trust people very easily, however Claire soon put me at ease and I told her things that I have held onto for many years which stopped me moving forward both personally and professionally.
On a daily basis I am learning to say “NO” and take time out for me! I've stop putting everyone before “ME”. I have learnt that if I'm not happy and secure nothing else will be.
I found the confidence to tackle a very difficult employment situation head on and I have moved on! This has led to a new job with better hours, an increased income and more fulfilling relationships.
I know have some self confidence and I feel valued!!!
Basically Claire helped change my life.
