Hello and welcome!

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Claire and I am a coach and coach skills trainer (and closet folk musician) based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and transitioning to Seattle, USA, in October 2019. My desire is to help people live healthy, empowered, and fulfilled lives, as they take the lead in their life and work.

I work both in my hometown and globally through the wonderful interwebs. I am a native English & Dutch speaker, so if you prefer Dutch just shoot me a message and I can vertel you all about my work in het Nederlands.



I imagine you may be seeking clarity of direction, more courage to be you, more peace and less stress, to do the work you love, engage with what and who matter most, and somehow contribute to a better world!

As a leader you may be looking for ways to connect and grow so you can see positive transformation happen in the lives of those you lead.

If your answer is yes to any of the above, read on!


live & work on purpose

As a coach I am committed to seeing you come alive as you live and work 'on purpose': (re)discover what you are made of, what you are called to, and grow in the courage and resilience to live that out.

Life is an improvisational art where change is a constant and the unexpected should be expected.

My desire is to see you thrive instead of survive. I come alongside, helping you take care and take the lead in composing a life and work that expresses who you are and what you stand for. 

I work with people desiring change or going through major life or career transitions. The coaching can zoom in on career-crafting, improved work-life balance, exploring creativity, personal growth, and truly living in such a way that helps you show up and share what you have to offer with the world.


lead on purpose

My second passion is to equip purpose-driven influencers to really connect and generate growth.

These days strong listening, empathy, and communication skills are essential in the workplace for leaders, managers, consultants, and entrepreneurs, and incredibly beneficial at home for parents, friends, and partners.

Through coach skills training, workshops, and leadership coaching, I provide tools to bring about positive transformation through the way you lead and encourage growth in others.

I like to think of men and women as artists of their own lives, working with what comes to hand through accident or talent, to compose and recompose a pattern in time that expresses who they are and what they believe in, making meaning even as they are studying and working and raising children, creating and recreating themselves.

Work with me


My main offerings are  1-, 3- or 6-month one-on-one coaching focused on gaining more clarity, courage, and direction in your life and work.


I offer online or in-person coach skills training and leadership coaching for purpose-driven influencers working to make a positive impact in other’s lives. 

About Me

I’m a creative and compassionate Irish (and kind of Dutch) thirty-something-year-old based in a cosy attic apartment in the heart of Amsterdam with my kind and silly husband, Nate (moving to Seattle, USA, in October 2019).

I worked in social justice and international development helping empower women and children for over 10 years before transitioning to the entrepreneurial coach life.

From the moment I completed my coach training, I was hooked. I have been an accredited ACC coach with the International Coach Federation since 2013 and have added specialisations in career, transition, leadership development, narrative, and strength-based coaching.

I love the opportunities coaching and training affords me to come alongside people, hear their stories, and see them ‘walk their why’ in the tiny and larger schemes of life.
