About Claire

 

Hey I’m Claire,

I am passionate about supporting and empowering women towards achieving healthy, balanced and fulfilling lives.

I believe that we all deserve to feel amazing and feel confident in our own skin and that through some good positive lifestyle changes we can achieve our desired results.

We are all living in a state of busy busy busy ask any women and she will often use the word “Busy” but more often than not will cram that extra activity in.

It feels like we have this FOMO and we need to be seen to be busy, we have to do it all, have it all and we can’t say no..  We are living on the edge with our health & wellbeing so close to burnout that the only reason we will say no is when we crash and burn.

By saying yes to everyone else you are are saying no to yourself, by juggling all that life throws at us we are adding an increased pressure on our mental, physical and emotional wellbeing which may sadly come at a price to our health.

 

“It’s about being the best healthiest version of your true self”

How and why I became Involved in the Health  & Wellbeing World

 I have had times in my own life when I have really hated the skin I was in, times when I have been that unwell due to lack of self care I just resented myself. I have gained weight, felt bloated struggled with major sugar cravings and constantly battled with using food as an emotional crutch from eating to celebrate and eating to commiserate.I have the t-shirt for every fad diet going that made me even more unhappy and no closer to my goals..

I had a turning point in my life that I would never wish anyone else to have to go through I was FAT, SICK and felt nearly dead I crashed and burned had a mini stroke and was diagnosed with an Autoimmune and CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome).. I had to take control of my health and only I had the power to want to change things and to do this once and for all..

I had already studied nutrition back in 2011/12 I knew I needed to use my knowledge and all that I had learnt along with the help and support of those around me to change once and for all..

I now am a total advocate of clean eating / Paleo / keto for the health results you get from these certain lifestyles and have shifted the way that I look at food – it is fuel for my vessel that I need to take good care of and love. Food is no longer the enemy it serves as my medicine to heal and restore.

Cooking is my passion so armed with my Nutritional Qualifications and my cooking skills I set to work to devise lots of tasty nutritious recipes that family, friends and clients could enjoy all without feeling like they are missing out.

In order for me to create the healthiest version of me, I decided to combine paleo alongside strength training – this is just the beginning of my own journey and I love having a tribe by my side getting the best results for their own bodies. Yes I still struggle with my health 5 years on but I am much further along the path than I would have been had I not made any substantial changes.

 

So Here We Are Today ———————————————-

 

I am fully trained and accredited as a Nutrition & Wellbeing Coach with a passion for Naturopathy & Functional Medicine ( The later just starting out to train in & super excited about the future).

My passion lies within women’s wellbeing and I love nothing better than helping clients just like you improve your health and wellness through simple strategies and routines to gain clarity and control, find the balance you crave and develop healthy habits with our overall lifestyle from nutrition to fitness to career and relationships.

I worked the corporate world for 15 years along with running a home juggling between family and friends so I totally get the battle that women face. I like to think that I am now the “Fairy Godmother” to give you the guidance to help you simplify things and re structure you “Busy busy busy life”.
Giving you back the vitality and energy to boot..

Together we will create healthy behaviors in the realms of nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, organisation and stress management. You will emerge feeling energised, inspired and empowered.
This is about aligning back to you the real you.

I am here for you, to support you towards being empowered, inspired and energised, to look, feel and be your best. Change is not easy, but with the right support and plan it is possible. I like to think of it as the Butterfly effect – from Cocoon to Caterpillar to spreading those wings as a beautiful Butterfly.

What Rocks My World? ————————

Weights – throwing around the iron in our gym The Lifestyle Studios which is pretty damn awesome ( no bias here)

My Fur Baby Sydney the Bearded Collie he got me through the dark days of my illness with his unconditional love his gentleness and his fun personality – it’s now my time to repay him back with lot’s of adventures.

Sup Boarding – I am so not sure where this passion came from as I live nowhere near the ocean but after living in Australia for a while and the Husband into Surfing I wanted something I could also do..

Food – OMG I luuuuuuuuuuuuurve the food. I have a huge passion for good quality, fresh, seasonal produce and I love nothing better than cooking for friends and family.

Last & by no means least – The Grumpy One.. AKA the husband. I could not be any prouder of this guy everyone has a story and a reason for where they are right now in life and I can only say that I am grateful that he came to the UK, even prouder of him and the business he has created and the care and support he has given me through out my own tough times.
