Claire is organised, supportive, friendly, welcoming and is passionate about inviting women to walk and write in nature. What comes with this sacred space is a unique, warm, and nurturing energy she has created for clients attending, and I was able to push myself out of my comfort zone safely and gently.” – Sarah Kerr, Life Coach

Meet your host

Hi I’m Claire; I am a creative writing coach, nordic walking instructor, journalist, content creator, and lover of words. I use a blended coaching and mentoring approach to ignite my client’s creativity so they can share their authentic voice and story.  I started my career at ITN in radio and television, and then went on to be the editor of Families magazine for eight years.  I’m on a mission to help soul-led entrepreneurs, change makers, creatives and coaches to ignite their creativity, write the words that need to be written and spread their gifts like wildfire.

I decided to host this writing retreat because connection and sharing our wisdom and words is important. The retreat will help activate your inner creatrix so that you can be share your truth and vision with the world or simply relax and spend time to nurture your creativity.
