Coaching Testimonials

"Claire is an excellent life coach. She is a cheerful, positive person with empathy and insight. Claire is professional, conscientious and always reliable. When I first met Claire I felt 'stuck' in my life situation but with her help I began to work my way through, towards the most unexpected and happy results. Claire has a great way of affirming one's strengths and giving one the confidence to use them. She asks questions that leave you thinking and questioning yourself. Her follow-up is always immediate, reflecting your own thoughts in a way that gives perspective. Finding a path forward is not easy, but Claire has made this a life changing episode of my life. I am so appreciative of her help." November 2019

"Working with Claire has been a joyous revelation. Not only have I gone from being mildly sceptical about the value of coaching to being a full-on champion for it, but Claire's skills, strategies and innate kindness and enthusiasm have been instrumental in a huge shift. My approach, self-worth and confidence have undergone a total transformation - this is life changing stuff. Whatever you do, whatever your age, coaching with O&O is an exciting and enlightening journey that offers endless possibility. Do it!"

"Claire is a phenomenal coach. She has an amazing talent to challenge to the max but in a gentle way, she has pushed me out of my comfort zone, nailed my excuses and highlighted them. The results of which magically pull together, stretching but achievable, actions allowing me to conquer and fulfill. The concrete results are plentiful and I would recommend Claire a million times over." Kim Cutler, Storm McQueen Coaching

'Claire has coached my business for the past 6 months and without question it has been the best investment I could have made in my business. Claire has enabled me to view my business, goals and workload with clarity. I can directly link many of my recent business achievements to my work with Claire, several of which would simply not have happened without her coaching. It is a joy to progress my career with Claire's guidance!'

"My life coaching sessions with Claire have helped me focus and prioritise. Clare asks me carefully thought questions which in turn lead me to take new direction and actions. Somehow she knows how to uncover things within me I thought weren’t there or had been lost forever! Clare’s insight and ability to listen, take note and then feedback have helped me tremendously. My business has direction now, we have clear processes and a clear purpose. My business partner (who is also my brother) and I have a better relationship both in work and personally. In short, Clare is an excellent life coach, she makes me look at things from a new perspective taking my personality and my lifestyle into consideration. I look forward to working with her again in the future."

"My coaching sessions with Claire have been thought provoking and inspiring. From seeing a clear vision of what I wanted to achieve at the outset to guiding sessions to ensure we achieve a clear outcome at the end of each one / the sessions have been structured without feeling like that. I have gone into two or three of the sessions not really knowing what I wanted to achieve - yet come away having thought about things in totally new ways through the excellent questioning techniques Claire has used. Claire doesn't judge in any way - and has worked hard to ensure the conversations we have had have been kept on track and focussed. I have really enjoyed my coaching experience and would thoroughly recommend Claire as an excellent coach. Thank you - it's been a fabulous experience."

"I have recently completed Claire's mindset course. I started the course with a very fixed mindset about many aspects of my life/career, and just 5 sessions later, left feeling empowered, positive and excited about future possibilities. Claire was absolutely amazing at making me realise anything is doable, if you set some good practices in place, healthy habits, positive attitude etc. I'd highly recommend O&O Trainer Coach! Thank you Claire x"

"I just wanted to give you some feedback on the personal effectiveness training from last Friday.  The personal coach, Claire, was fantastic. She was a great presenter and we had very insightful discussions and conversations.  The content and length of the session were well-planned as well.  We all truly benefited from her insights." Coty

"What a fabulous day with Claire. Claire delivered a day of training for our Senior Management Team at The Glorious Spa Co. The team have not previously had any management training and they loved the day. Claire talked about personality profiling helping them to understand their team and what makes them tick and how to get the very best from them. A really informative and helpful day especially for a small company who are just building their Senior Team! Thanks!" The Glorious Spa Co.

"I certainly took a lot away from our time yesterday - the biggest brain 'click' for me was how I write/prepare for presentations - I like answering questions rather than simply delivering info - revolutionary for me!" Besmoke

"I attended the exceptionally good Presentation Skills course Claire ran for us at Unum. Apart from thoroughly enjoying the entire day, I learnt a huge amount and although I regularly give presentations already, I have been able to refine certain aspects and ensure I am not complacent about preparation, structure and delivery. Claire knows her subject matter and delivers it in a highly approachable, professional and enjoyable manner. She is the best trainer I have encountered in this field and I highly recommend her."

​"Claire has delivered Presentation Skills and Personal Impact training at Freedman. Delegates have described her as 'impressive' and her presentation training as being 'one of the best' courses they've attended. I have no hesitation recommending her. She literally practices what she preaches.​"

"The most useful course I have attended since working at Unum."

"Claire was an excellent trainer. She was enthusiastic about the subject and had a very approachable manner." Freedman
