"You have fundamentally changed how I think and act during the last 6 months, and so I have no doubt that todays discussions and actions will help me grow even further. As a coach I sometimes wonder about the impact as you listen and ask questions, but being on the other end for a change has been really enlightening for me and that 1 hr of someone listening and questioning is really empowering. Thank you for this and I think you are amazing."

"I was offered coaching by my organisation following a promotion to senior leadership which involved a large jump up the ladder with little preparation. Coaching with Clare has been unbelievably valuable. External coaching was offered to stretch and support me in my new role with confidentiality and without judgement. After three sessions, Clare’s coaching has massively guided my thinking."
