Unlocking potential

Creative self-development & wellbeing

Easy-to-use transformational tools to achieve personal and business goals

We're bombarded with so much noise: information, thoughts, ideas, possibilities, expectations, pressures, considerations, opinions, I could go on. This can leave us feeling stuck, distracted, unclear and sometimes overwhelmed.

Behind that noise is a rich world full of wisdom and creativity just waiting to be awakened.

Opening the door to this place within you, where perspectives, ideas and insights lie, can be transformational; giving you clarity and inspiration to move through uncertainty, roadblocks, challenges and complexity. 


Using writing – simply as a tool where no experience or grammar are required - shifts your energy, your mindset and builds creative confidence. 





"A complete novice to free-writing (verging on sceptic), I could never have imagined the value to be gained from putting pen to paper and just letting your hand move - the pen taking you in whatever direction it saw fit. Through creating a safe space to share what I had written Claire unlocked a whole new side of me that I wasn’t aware existed intrinsically in tune with my needs and blockers. It’s amazing the reflections and realisations I could make by finding an outlet for my subconscious." Will


Through courses, bespoke workshops or working 1:1 my mission is to encourage and inspire you, your team and organisation to open the door to these precious resources so you can lead a more vital, enjoyable and successful life - in business and at home. Claire


unblock your pen, unlock your potential

These courses consist of free-writing prompts and creative writing exercises which get people's pens moving and minds opening. - without having to think about what to write. ​Suitable for everyone - no grammar or spelling required.

Develop creative confidence and self-coaching skills to explore and discover options, make sense of complexity, solve problems, monitor progress, make decisions and vision success.

"Coach yourself with a Pen unlocked some quite profound revelations for me about what was going on inside my head and helped me identify some practical actions I could take to address a particular issue. Sessions with Claire are always a joy, always provide unexpected insight, and are always a great opportunity to explore interesting exercises in a supportive and encouraging environment." Annie P

connecting groups, achieving goals

Use easy exercises and discussion for connecting groups around common topics, goals or experiences. Here are just some examples:

Divergent thinking: Solve problems: open up creativity and ideas.

Team-building: Break ice, network, build trust.

Clarifying vision: Understand motivations and goals and crystalise direction.

Personal development: Explore possibilities, clarify goals, support wellbeing and resilience.

"... The exercises built my team's confidence in reflecting, writing and sharing as the workshop progressed and every team member took valuable reflections away. Not only did each individual benefit, but we also did as a team and plan to continue our journaling at team meetings. A highly impactful session in a very short time - highly recommended to other teams looking for a deeper connection and a novel way to reflect and share. LP Regional Business Manager, UK, Global Pharmaceutical company.   

“The Creative Journaling session delivered by Claire was brilliant. Everyone enjoyed the session, it felt really inclusive and fun whilst also creating an environment where people felt confident to share and express their words. The end result was exactly what we had hoped for!” Manager, Fostering Network


“I must say it was one of the best, possibly the best, 2.5 hours I have spent in an online workshop. I found it really helpful in terms of the personal insights I gained and I really enjoyed doing it." Cathy

"I found the session surprisingly powerful – who could have predicted my bookshelf would tell me what I needed to hear that day!" Product Owner at HSBC

"I initially set out to try coaching as I felt like I needed to reconnect with that passion I once felt for my job. I was looking for support with direction onto a new path. What I found was that my sessions were spent uncovering and overcoming a more pertinent theme that if left unaddressed would prevent me from reaching any career or life goals. I really appreciated the time and space coaching gave me to reflect upon this in my life. Claire was very supportive, empathetic and non-judgemental. I felt very comfortable opening up to her and really appreciated how comfortable she made me feel during our short time together. Thank you for, literally, giving me back the gift of time."
