Coaching testimonials for Clare Smale



Clare provides a stimulating and thought inspiring coaching session. They are challenging sessions that result in detailed discussion and realistic target setting. Clare has a positive and relaxed manner that inspires confidence and encourages you to think outside the box. Her knowledge and experience of leadership is shared and used to good effect. I always feel I have achieved a great deal and planned to achieve a great deal more, during our meetings and coaching sessions.

Tiffany, Bristol

Highly developed coaching skills were used throughout the session. In particular the question-set centring on behaviours to stop and avoid, changes needed, positive outcomes to pursue, successful behaviours to appreciate and emulate was extremely effective. Non directive questioning was used throughout and the client was gently but consistently probed for the responses which would assist her situation.
Notes from an observed coaching session


Thank you so much for the interview coaching you gave David. He was buzzing when I came home. He said that you made him think his way through everything and that he had more confidence in what he had to offer and how to present himself. He is putting the buzzwords into his applications that are still waiting to be completed and he feels much more able to give of his best next week. Thank you once again – he has been feeling dejected by the whole process and you have made him see there are opportunities that he can reach out for with some confidence.

Heather, Chippenham


Six months ago I went through a serious crisis of confidence at work and wasn't sure if I was going to recover. However, through the expert coaching of Clare I have not only re-aligned my professional ambitions but have just been appointed as a senior manager! Clare's intuitive nature and down-to-earth attitude has helped me tremendously and I would unreservedly recommend her to anyone in need of learning more about the world of coaching.

Pete, Portsmouth


I just wanted to say thank you for this morning it was a great session and I felt so excited after it was finished - like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders, that my life was on the brink of changing and that there was light at the end of the tunnel.  So thank you once again.

Pip, Manchester


Over the past year I have received coaching sessions from Clare Smale as part of my role as Fast Track teacher. I found the sessions immensely useful, both on a personal and professional level, and I gained a huge insight into how to tackle new responsibilities and whole school management issues. Clare is a dedicated professional who provided me with a level of support that went beyond the call of duty. Her coaching techniques were inspiring and have led me to explore coaching in more depth so that I can aim to offer such support to new colleagues. I would not hesitate to recommend Clare to others looking for coaching and support as I feel her ability to develop others is second to none.

Stephanie, Bristol 

"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."
