“I could say that I am a human who facilitates other people’s thinking. I am
a business owner. A Mother. A friend. A volunteer. A Master Coach with over
11000 hours experience. An author of Simplifying Coaching which is coming
out in December 2020. All of these are true and each will impact how we start a
conversation. With some definitions you might assign me power which I do
I’m interested in how we hold presence in coaching and work in partnership
in spite of power differences.”

As a coach, Claire takes you to the heart of issues enabling you to achieve transformational change in the context of your organisation. She is supportive and challenging, using simple questions that respect your world without allowing you to avoid difficult topics or insights. The feedback she receives confirms that she is able to provide more help in 10 minutes than many have received through months or years of other interventions. Claire has developed the coaching container and STOKeRS metamodel as a way of simplifying 3D’s offering and making it more relevant for people at work who will never be coaches and will adopt a coaching style in much, but not all, of their leadership and management.

She started her career as a teacher in Kenya and now has over 11000 coaching hours.
“When the time comes, there is no coach I would intend to approach other than you. Your help has been invaluable and, as a good coach should, you have held me accountable to answering some difficult questions perhaps I would have preferred not to answer at the time. They were, nevertheless the right questions at the right time.” KF
“I always came away feeling inspired by our sessions. Claire has amazing gifts in what she does – I wish I could package her up in a box when I move and take her with me! (I did recommend you after my first encounter with 3D more than 5 years ago – the recommendation was taken up, and the friend was as positive as I was about the help received)” SH
