Therapeutic Coach and Counsellor

About me

Hi, I'm Claire.

I empower ambitious, motivated professionals and entrepreneurs to break through their mental barriers, supercharge their self-belief and elevate their lives and careers to the next level.

Does this sound like you?

You're stuck, lost and at a crossroads in life.

You're unhappy in your career and other areas of your life and no longer want to just settle.

​You search for answers on the Internet and self-help books and despite 'knowing' what you need to do, you feel stuck and directionless.

​Your health and relationships are suffering as you distract and numb yourself from how you're feeling.

​You are last on your priority list. You put everyone else first and make them happy but you feel empty.

You know there's more to you and more to life.

​You are ready to find yourself again, reignite the passion that lays dormant inside you and step it up a notch.





I'm an award-winning Therapeutic Coach, Integrative Counsellor, Master Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Hypnotherapy, Time Line Therapy, author and mum to 2 incredible boys.

​I know only too well what it is like to be a filled to the brim with anxiety, waiting for the world to come to an end. For many years I despised the person staring back at me in the mirror. I was stressed and overwhelmed because of my need to please people and somehow feel good enough. I suffered with Imposter Syndrome, completely disconnected from what I’d achieved and the bad-ass that I now know I am inside. I wished I was someone else. Anyone but me.

Through my own therapy, coaching and complete obsession with self-help books, I have learnt how to appreciate, trust and take care of myself and I can help you to do the same.

​As a coach and counsellor, I have the tools and skills to not only help you to heal the past but create a magical future.

​I will help you to step into your power, upgrade your mindset and confidently show up to the world as YOU.

I offer a number of different 1:1 support packages:

  • 1:1 Coaching (3, 6 and 12 month packages)
  • Intensive Breakthrough Days

To find out which support package is most suitable for what you need, please visit my website and email at,uk to book your free Exploratory Call.


Counselling Service

We also have a team of dedicated counsellors in training ready to support you.

We strongly believe that one approach does not fit all and that’s why all of our counsellors are trained in a number of therapies, allowing them to tailor their support to fit your needs. We are dedicated to supporting you to develop new empowering ways of thinking, free yourself from destructive behaviours and discovering the greatness that already lies within you.

​Our counsellors are specially handpicked not just because of their skills and experience but also for their warm and friendly manner. Our counsellors will combine clever theory, knowledge and experience with an approachable way of working so that you feel comfortable enough to explore, discover and grow into the person you truly are.

If you are interested in the counselling support with my team, then please email me to book your initial consultation and we will get you set up with the right support in no time.

We are also a placement provider for University of Derby and North West Leicestershire College - please don't hesitate to enquire about joining our team if you are a trainee counsellor.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Kind words from my previous clients...

"Claire is genuinely one of the best at what she does. Helped me so much."

"Therapy with Claire has helped me a great deal. Claire is very professional, understanding and attentive. The appointments helped my mindset in how to deal with negative situations, easing my anxiety and helping me to focus on more positive things such as walks and fresh air to help. Claire is a very caring therapist who works at your own pace and does not rush you in anyway. Cannot recommend Claire enough for anyone needing support. I’m a different person for the better".

"I felt as ease with Claire on my visits. At first I was quite nervous and didn't know what to expect but as we got talking she made me feel like I could lay my cards on the table and get down to the problems that were making me feel unhappy. I would definitely go back if I start struggling again and would highly recommend Claire for anybody seeking help."

​"Claire was amazing. When you talk it actually feels like your feelings are important, no matter how silly you might think they are. The amount the sessions have helped my outlook on life are extraordinary! I never expected to be able to see life in as positive a way as I do now, and it's thanks to Claire showing me how to do it! I honestly couldn't recommend this enough if you're thinking about asking for help."

"Claire is very understanding and helped me through some tough times, she helped me get through to the root cause of some of my problems, and was always very supportive. After several sessions I feel much more confident in my personal life and at work. I would recommend Claire to anyone."

"I should thank you for changing my life, but you haven't. I changed my life but you pointed me in the right direction and I would never have been able to do it without you. You are amazing at your job."

​"You've taken me through a process in which you've been gentle, compassionate, kind-hearted, warm, golden. Your ability as a listener and for me to feel heard has helped me to take another look and shrink my monsters so small I've stepped on them. Thank you."

​"Claire, you saved my life. I was in a dark place before I met you. You will never know how much you have helped me. I used to wake up dreading the day and now I wake up loving life. You are very special. Thank you for everything you've done."

"I knew I was in the wrong place and I knew I had an opportunity for a fresh start. What I did not know was how to go about it. I had never considered or understood counselling or what options there were. My initial contact with Claire was via e-mail, her reply made me feel I was doing the right thing and I found her friendly, easy to talk to and honest with her feedback and approach. Now I wonder why I waited so long? I have met my aims, I do feel better and now I have the tools in my mind to face issues and help me stay on a positive track looking forward to life ahead with the ones I love and who love me. I cannot thank Claire enough."

"I can't thank Claire enough for the help she has given me over the past year. Claire has such a kind, caring, professional nature and is easy to talk to in a non-judgmental environment. I have always felt comfortable talking to Claire and her help has been invaluable in helping with relationships and improving my self-confidence. Thank you."

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
