Claire-Bradshaw-Coaching-Testimonial

I’ve always been a nervous/anxious kid and then I got to my breaking point due to overworking myself in early 2018.  I went to a few sessions with a psychologist but ended up being recommended with taking Zoloft through a GP which I didn’t feel comfortable with.  I tried the drug out of desperation but the side effects didn’t feel like it’s worth taking it so I stopped.  I felt lost, confused and felt like I was, as from a famous quote, living my life of quiet desperation until I finished life coaching session with Claire.

The first time I met Claire was as my yoga teacher.  She’s warm, relatable, genuine and had an ability to connect what happens on the mat to that off the mat.

She was very thorough and patient and asked all the right questions that prompted and guided me to the answers that I need to know.  She provided me with a safe space to share and express whatever it is I feel or think.  Having been through a similar journey, Claire was empathetic but very objective and showed great understanding of the challenges I’d been going through.  It was very evident in our sessions that she is sincere in her desire to help and that she loves what she’s doing.  The kindness and compassion the she showed inspired me to show the same to myself and to others.

Claire’s coaching equipped me with life skills and tools to manage my anxiety; and the confidence and knowing that I already have, inside me, what I need to have a joyful, fulfilling and purposeful life.

Working with Claire has been a real journey of self love and self understanding. Our one to one calls were very discrete, relaxed and I never felt uncomfortable.

She helped me to love the person I am now, to see the beauty in me and in others

Claire has been my first Life and Wellness Coach and I can't thank her enough for this amazing journey.

It has been a real pleasure to work with Claire the last few months. I have learned, uncovered, changed and achieved goals all with Claire's guidance. Claire keeps you accountable and opens up your eyes to what's right in front of you. Things you may not necessarily be able to see for yourself. She is able to really dive deep into what the issues are, and relate to everything that you are saying, so you feel truly heard.

Becoming aware of things you hadn't even realised about yourself, your habits and your environment can help create big shifts in thinking and creating and sticking to new habits. Claire has really helped me to do that and moving forward I feel like I have the right tools to keep doing this on my own.

Thank you Claire, I look forward to working with you again in the future.

When I decided to do the coaching program with Claire I was scared of the idea of changing and losing myself and I was also really scared about the idea of needing "help". However, Claire held a safe space for me to discover what was not working in my routines and to be curious about my logical behaviour and thought patterns. This was a game-changer in the way I was able to stay open during the coaching.

During the whole process she held a space in which I could feel safe, loved, heard and seen, so I could talk openly and explore and be curious about the process. More importantly, I felt that I was leading my journey and making decisions and new choices naturally. Her lead, support and powerful knowledge during the coaching program help me to blossom and also gave me my power back. I truly feel different about challenges, decisions, about day to day routine and about myself. Although the process of changing and healing takes time and we are in continuous evolution, now I feel that I have tools to face what comes and more importantly to decide where I'm heading.

I completed the coaching program with Claire in 2019 and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made! I knew I had to make some big changes in my life and I didn’t really know where to start. It was like there was a version of myself I was trying to reach but the gap between where I was and where I wanted to be seemed too big.

In hindsight I can see that it is easy to dream of the person you want to be when you are in the safety of your comfort zone. It’s much harder to stick to that vision when you are confronted by the challenges of really changing your life. And that is where Claire steps in.

When I was in the middle of making a difficult change and starting to question myself, Claire would hold me accountable to my original vision. Instead of getting swept up in self-doubt and reverting to old habits and patterns, I would focus on following the steps of the coaching program. Thanks to Claire’s support I feel confident to finally pursue my own path in life rather than just following what is expected of me by society. I definitely recommend signing on to one of her coaching programs, it is a kind of support that is really not easy to find these days.

The time working with Claire has challenged me mentally and has helped me to think about what I want in life.  I feel a lot calmer and more focussed on what makes me happy.

I first met Claire as my yoga instructor and I instantly warmed to her and always looked forward to her classes. When I discovered she was also a coach I realised I could not find a better person to guide me through this journey. With the tools Claire has armed me with I feel more confident in achieving the goals I have set for myself for the forthcoming year. This year is the year of 'I will!'

For me going into life coaching I honestly wasn’t exactly sure what to expect and I wasn’t exactly sure how it would help me but it felt like something I needed and wanted to explore.

I’d come to a point in my life where whilst I had a full and wonderful life I felt like I was stagnant, doing the same thing week after week, stuck in the same place with no hope of anything changing and I really wasn't doing much to change that. I didn’t have any plans or goals for the future and I really didn’t seem to be able to work these out on my own, I lacked the motivation and determination to do this, you’d find me watching Netflix for hours on end rather than doing some planning for my own future.

In all honesty I felt like I was on the conveyor belt of life, just going through the motions waiting for life to happen rather than me doing something to make my life happen. I also had a niggling feeling and thought that kept coming up that there was surely more to life than this, the daily grind and I wanted to investigate and explore that and also move forward with my life and work out what I wanted.

Working with Claire has been truly amazing. Claire has helped me achieve and realise things I never would have on my own. Having someone to talk to and discuss my hopes and dreams, my fears and anxieties and to help me work out what’s important to me has been liberating. It enabled me to take time for reflection on my own life, realise things about myself, my own situation and what I wanted to achieve for myself and I’d never really put that much time into me before.

Having Claire to meet every two weeks to discuss my progress or my lack or progress in some areas has been so motivating and to have her to check in with in such a supportive, caring and non judgemental way has really been priceless. Claire has helped keep me on track with my goals and what I set out to achieve and discover about myself. After the 3 months of coaching I now have a strong sense of what I want for my life; I have the tools, motivation, determination and plan to get me there - the past 3 months has been a fantastic experience and personal journey and I am so grateful and thankful to Claire for helping me achieve all this.

Claire's coaching has been a true blessing. I felt so comfortable telling her about the things I wanted to work on and improve and not at all judged just totally heard. Claire is so understanding and really supportive, I felt totally guided and in safe hands!

Setting goals and actions was a really practical way of changing behaviours for the better and organising my life better. I have learnt so much from Claire, all which you can really apply to your life and see results! The level of care and wisdom Claire gave in each session was really useful for everyday life but also deeply healing.

I am honestly so grateful for your gift of coaching , it was one of the best decisions I have ever made, thank you Claire

"Claire helped me so much when going through a tough time in life. A relationship ended, I was looking for a career change and a new flat! Big stresses all round. Her holistic advice helped a lot. Upping the protein with plenty of quinoa, beans and dark greens, as well as swapping red wine for soda water (every other trip to the pub) gave me the energy I needed to make some shifts.

Probably I am most grateful to her being an ear for the things I was thinking and feeling at the time. She listened without judgement and offered really helpful tips to work with my mind rather than against! I am in a much better place now, I have a gorgeous new flat, and I've opened a new yoga studio with a friend...a new boyfriend can wait. I fully recommend Claire as a holistic life coach to help make those alignments in life"

"Claire’s consultations came at just the right time for me – I’d started a new job, which required me to move to a new city, and I was struggling to find time to exercise and eat well. She was lovely and understanding from the outset, easy to talk to and full of positivity.

She's really knowledgable and gave me some great practical tips on healthy eating, and suggestions for how I could make subtle changes to my lifestyle that would give me the energy boost I needed. Since we spoke, I've definitely improved my diet and made time for more exercise - as well as all-important relaxation. It was a really valuable, thought-provoking experience and I think everyone could benefit from Claire's holistic insights".

"Claire is warm, approachable and nurturing. Claire really helped me to examine the barriers to achieving my health goals and enabled me to come up with some quick wins and longer term strategies to overcome these challenges. I found her professional, knowledgeable and I appreciate her holistic approach to health".

Sally, Vancouver, Canada

In September 2015 I decided to change my life around. I had problems with stress, I was lacking in energy and I was returning to the same negative feelings and habits. Also I had skin problems, mainly psoriasis and eczema. While I knew these are not easily fixed, I also knew that there was much in my lifestyle I could change to help my body overcome these things.

After the first consult, Claire and I got clear where the problems lay and which first steps I wanted to take towards a healthier life. We met up twice a month to talk about progress and set new goals if I needed or wanted to. She would always bring nice assignments that I could use to integrate things like meditation, focus on gratitude, yoga into my everyday life. Claire is a loving coach who will remind you that you are helping yourself and not restricting yourself when exchanging bad habits into healthy ones.

Today I am a proud non-smoker. I have a regular yoga and meditation practice. My psoarias is almost gone and I have no stress related eczema. I feel calmer and stronger. I am studying to become a yoga teacher and am currently taking more time for my photography. All in all, meeting Claire was a life changing experience!"

"My sessions with Claire about my health and wellbeing was one of smiles, understanding and purpose. I really didn’t know what to expect and to be honest had a couple of small reservations... 1) what would she tell me that I don’t already know about myself and 2) would I feel a little vulnerable and exposed (like being in a fish bowl)?

However, Claire’s open, kind and professional manner immediately dispelled any concerns. In one conversation, given Claire’s easy conversational style, keen listening and natural ability to ask the right questions... she really helped me figure out what was holding me back from meeting some key goals. In fact, she helped me realise I was chasing things and outcomes, that I didn’t actually know I was chasing!

Knowing more clearly what I wanted, made creating and following a plan to do so, so much easier. I am actively doing a lot more than I was before, but oddly it feels less time consuming or tiresome both physically and emotionally. And... I’ve already met 2 of my goals.

If you are looking to do something for yourself, I’d really urge you to coach with Claire. As she helped me, I’m sure Claire can help you find the feeling of lightness, a sense of clarity and renewed passion for doing what makes you happy..."

Teri, Melbourne, Australia

"Claire not only taught me a yoga routine that I could confidently do at home (getting to a yoga class was proving tricky with working and caring for a young family!), she also helped me to clarify what was important to me and how to be more present day to day.  I would not hesitate to recommend seeing Claire for anyone wanting to improve the way they live their life whether it be through learning yoga or having someone to coach you through finding and articulating your true values with which you want to live your life by.  100% worth the investment – thank you Claire".

"I have just completed a six month period of life coaching with Claire, and just about to sign up for another six month session! Our sessions have been a wonderful gift over the last six months, of giving me time to think about things, reflect, all the while being guided and advised by a warm, sympathetic and knowledgable life coach.  We covered many more topics than I originally thought we would, and have, at times, gone down a different path than expected, but always a better one than I was expecting. There has been a certain fluidity about the sessions that has allowed further exploration of issues than might otherwise have occurred. I thoroughly recommend her! "
