“I found working with Clare to be transformative. At the time of meeting her, I had reached a senior level within my firm but had hit a rut and was unsure how to take things forward. A number of bad habits, particularly around managing workload and responding to feedback were undermining my confidence and I also was struggling to juggle work and life priorities. Working with Clare meant I was able to find my purpose and focus, identify my strengths and work out my priorities. She gave me excellent practical tools to help me get out of the bad habits and move towards my newly defined goals. So much so that I had the confidence to take the big leap of faith required to go for the next big promotion and take that role forward in a way that suits, motivates and energises me. I can’t thank her enough and would recommend her to anyone looking to work through challenges on the work front.”
“I can’t recommend a series of sessions with Clare enough. I was in a dark place in my career – my confidence had been knocked, I felt out of control and really low. This showed in my career performance. Every night was Sunday night feeling. After sessions with Clare – I regained career focus, confidence, determination and drive. I’m a different person in the workplace and it’s been commented on. I’m still on my journey of where to go next but armed with the ability to make the right decisions and ability to explore options to get clarity on my next move”.
“Before meeting Clare, I lacked a lot of confidence in my abilities and I was not sure if I was in the right career – I felt a bit stuck. I had significant emotional blockages that were holding me back and prevented me from moving forward. Clare used a variety of techniques to help me in this regard, and these have proven very effective. (I now no longer ruminate on past events). I also found Clare to be very insightful perceptive and warm and I found her very easy to talk to, which helped me explore a variety of issues in a clear, focused and creative way. I have now been to a variety of international conferences both here and abroad, have presented to a range of audiences – I am about to give a talk to over 80 people! Oh and I very much enjoy my job. I really would have never believed I could do any of this prior to working with Clare. I also have a lot more confidence not only at work but also socially which is why I would without hesitation strongly recommend Clare as a coach. Without a doubt”.
“It was a pleasure to work with Clare in order to improve my business development skills, public speaking and general overall confidence. Clare is personable, professional and very quickly boosted my self-confidence and potential. Clare ensured that I completed what I said I would do in terms of the strategy we discussed. As a result of Clare’s help, I am now much more confident selling to others and speaking in public to a large audience. I would have no hesitation in recommending Clare.”
“After me recently finishing university, Clare has been instrumental in planning my next steps, boosting my confidence and helping me onto a career path I will enjoy. Clare is extremely easy to talk to and her sessions are very relaxed. I found that Clare brought out the highest potential in my past work/life/academic experiences in order to present my skills and achievements in a marketable way. whilst at the same time being able to satisfy my desire to travel I would highly recommend Clare’s services to anybody who is seeking career direction/job seeking.”
“Meeting with Clare was one of the best decisions we ever made. At the time of contacting Clare we were both lacking clarity and felt unsure on how to move forward with our newly established photographic business…we knew we had goals but weren’t completely sure how to achieve them. Our time spent with Clare proved invaluable in enabling us to confront our own personal challenges and mental roadblocks that we had unknowingly put on ourselves. Clare’s warmth, positive energy and insightfulness helped steer us in the direction that we needed to be in and it is no co-incidence that shortly after, our photography business grew in leaps and bounds.”

“Although I had been in a professional role at a senior level before having children, after a being out of the workforce for a number of years, I found myself lacking confidence and unsure about my future direction. After only one session with Clare, I felt confident that I could get back into work. I was clear about the terms I wanted to return on so I could balance work and family life. After one further session with Clare, I was happily working in a role that fitted around school hours in my chosen area. My career has since progressed leaps and bounds. Clare gave me the confidence and self-belief I needed to make these changes and I am eternally grateful.”
“I took early retirement last year from a very stressful job with a plan to work on a part time basis. I was struggling to get the balance right in my new life and to feel comfortable with myself. Clare helped me to understand the Cycle of Change and that my anxieties and worries were a normal part of the change. She also helped me to be more accepting of myself. In many ways I have become more at ease with myself and accepting of the feelings I have whatever they are. Clare brings a sense of calmness to her work and I felt really encouraged and supported by her. She helped me relax into my new life.”
“I sought advice from Clare at Nurture HR after struggling with interviews. I had a knock to my confidence after receiving several rejections. Clare helped me to rebuild this confidence and approach interviews in a more relaxed and confident manner. Since then I have been successful in gaining employment. I would highly recommend Clare and Nurture HR for friendly, professional advice given in a caring way.”
