  • Improve overall health and well-being through proper dental care.

  • Achieve financial security and stability by purchasing a home.

Here, you can watch or listen to Dan's 4-minute video testimonial about Lifestyle coaching with Claire:


  • Dan addressed his dental issues by scheduling appointments with a periodontist. ("...It has massive implications for me doing my job. I work face to face with people. So it's very important to have good dental hygiene...")

  • He successfully purchased a flat, achieving his goal of homeownership.


“For years, I wanted to buy a home but kept putting it off. Coaching helped me overcome my anxieties and achieve my goal of homeownership. I now have the security and stability I was looking for."

Dan's testimonial

"Claire creates a brilliant environment that enables me to get to the point of being impelled to solve my own problems. And I guess that's why I chose Claire. She works in a way where she doesn't push you and she doesn't solve the problem for you, but she doesn't let you off the hook. She challenges you to deal with the issue that you've been avoidant of, so that's very much why I really enjoyed working with her."

- Dan Higginson
