My name is Claire Knight. I trained as a Life Coach at the UK College of Personal Development in Swindon. The college is a centre of excellence for life coaching and NLP training. Since qualifying, I have undertaken regular Continuous Professional Development in various specialisms including Anxiety management, CBT, children's coaching and weight management. I maintain a strong interest in learning new techniques and enhancing my knowledge. I have also worked as a volunteer children's mentor and I coach children over the age of 12 and teenagers.
I found coaching when I needed help to move towards a better future - I went on to change my career, find love, and move to a different environment. Coaching taught me a lot about myself and empowered me to make the changes I wanted in my life. I was astonished by the experience and wanted to facilitate the same powerful changes for others.
I offer a warm, friendly and professional approach. I structure our sessions in order that you move closer to your goal with each one. I use processes which help you to consider different angles and perspectives which may not have been obvious to you before. I challenge you and may give you homework! Most importantly, I offer a special space which allows you to feel safe, be honest and give the required focus to the outcomes you want to achieve. My practise is governed by the Association of NLP code of ethics.
I practise from my home office in the village of Heddington, near Calne in Wiltshire. My office is surrounded by beautiful countryside which provides a lovely, nurturing environment in which to experience coaching. I also coach by telephone or online.
