Claire is a performance coach for both the RAF and Royal Navy specialising in pilots and the Air Battle Management Branch.  With years of experience as a Fighter Controller in the Royal Air Force, she has significantly improved performance and pass rates for individuals undertaking challenging courses.  

With her executive coaching (our lead coach) she is extremely motivated and has a focus on unlocking life-changing insights with each coachee. She encourages the development of a deeper self-awareness and personal insight.  She believes a person’s past is no indication of their future, everyone can achieve change in whatever direction they choose, but they must decide and choose to do this, which is the key, committing themselves wholeheartedly.  She firmly believes that people’s beliefs about what is possible for themselves are their only limits.

Her preference and specialisation in coaching is both the relational coaching which works at a psychological depth, to address deep thoughts, behaviours and feelings; secondly, performance coaching helping individuals strive and motivate to be the best they can be. She can build a rapport from the start; this comes from a desire to help and support the coachees.  She gives the attention and personal investment to any coachee for their well being and development; this is very motivational and inspirational. She offers the confidentially to allow this to happen and a relaxed environment to achieve this. She communicates and expertly understands the needs of the coachee which is pivotal to the relationship. She has a very informal, wonderfully relaxed approach, which is integrative; she will draw on a person-centred approach, models and theories. She will balance analysis with a focus on building trust so that new thinking; attitudes and behaviours can be developed.

Whether Claire is your trainer or coach, you can guarantee a truly first-class experience in which you will learn a tremendous amount.
