Coaching, Reflexology, Reiki
Claire truly believes in a whole person approach to wellness. Having been faced with anxiety, depression and a feeling that there is something more to life she sought different methods to uncover who she is and what she is here to do… which is to support others to create the life they choose.
Claire found these therapies helped her to overcome challenges in her life and due to their profound effect, she then trained in them to give that gift to others too. Claire can support you in; increasing confidence, reducing stress and anxiety and making life choices based on who YOU are. Reiki and Reflexology are both energy based therapies which support the body in clearing blocks caused by past traumas whether they are physical, mental or emotional. Combined with coaching, these methods can be life changing. Coaching, Reflexology and Reiki can be booked together or separately.
