Her second book, "The Transformational Coach", enables you to shed the ineffective scripts, trappings, and beliefs that a lifetime of personal interactions, professional training, and even your parents have taught you, such that you can reset your thinking to a beginner's mentality and so begin a fulfilling and exciting journey to coaching mastery.
Living in the New Forest, Hampshire with her bloodhound and husband, Clare is a prolific blogger and an award-winning regular feature writer for industry magazines and journals.
