The UK Health Coaches Association, of which Clare is a member, describes a Health Coach as:

Health CoachingA wellness professional who:

    • is trained to partner with clients who are seeking to improve their health and wellness.


    • believes unreservedly in their clients’ capacity for change and will hold them in unconditional positive regard as they support, educate and empower them to find their way to better health.


    • understands that each client is an expert on their own life and remains respectful and non-judgemental in all interactions.


    • cuts through the confusing clutter of contradictory information and the ‘one size fits all’ mentality to help their clients create their own ‘Lifestyle Prescription’ that is exactly suited to their needs.


    • Will support, educate & motivate you to find simple ways to better health, break through resistance and overcome self-sabotage.

They go on to say that “Health Coaching is a powerfully transformative modality that supports people as they take back control of their health.

Whether you are battling with a major health issue, lots of little issues or simply have a few pounds to lose, a Health Coach will see you as a whole person and work with you to create a prioritized, step-by-step approach to helping you become an expert in your own health”


Who Benefits from Health Coaching?

Health and Lifestyle coaching is for anyone who wants to make a positive and lasting change with regard to their health. It is particularly beneficial for people who can identify with any of the following:

    • Lead a busy life and have too little time for themselves or their health
    • Feels under pressure to perform and are experiencing stress generated by their everyday life
    • Has gained some extra weight that they would like to shift
    • Has been asked by their doctor to carry out certain actions such as losing weight, making dietary changes etc. but are unclear how to go about this, or have tried but find that it’s not going as well as planned
    • May have noticed a drop in their energy levels and are no longer able to perform at the same levels as before
    • Probably know what should change but can’t find the time to deal with it
    • Would like to make a positive change in their health but feel flat, stuck, powerless or trapped by their current situation


How working with a Health Coach can help you.

A Health Coach will help you to:

    • Discover what’s been stopping you, slowing you down or keeping you from achieving your health goals
    • Develop a powerful vision of your goals so that you can focus on achieving them
    • Discover which foods and lifestyle habits are preventing you from reaching your goals
    • Develop a step by step plan tailored to your needs that will lead you to success
    • Get to know yourself better so that re-tuning to maintain a healthy lifestyle and stable weight becomes second nature; you’re just shifting your dial…
    • Feel more confident, and have the tools to stay on track with your goals – no matter what life throws at you!
  • Learn that for positive change to be durable you have to own it. And, that it’s not all work and no play!

“A phone call from Clare each Thursday evening became a real highlight of my week last summer. Juggling being a single mum of a busy teenager, looking after my elderly mother and working (albeit part-time) was taking it’s toll on my health, both physical and mental. Having overdone the exercise on a weak knee in the past also means that I can no longer walk well and have put on a lot of weight in the last few years. Although generally quite happy, I was resigned to me being the lowest priority in my own life and felt there was nothing I could do to change it. Clare listened, really listened, and helped me to step back and look at the big picture, then broke it down into areas which we could work on that felt achievable. Each week we focused on different things but always with a review and a challenge to keep the big picture in focus. Clare has such a lovely manner, you feel you can truly open up and tell her anything; she will never judge, just wants to help. She also has a wonderfully hypnotic voice which transported me to a very happy place when she helped me visualise how I would like to see myself in the future. I would highly recommend Clare as a Health Coach. She is knowledgeable and caring and helped me put my life back on track.”
