Our Happy Clients Comments
I would thoroughly recommend Claire for anyone who is having nerve/sciatica issues from pregnancy. At the end of my first treatment, I had reduced pain by 80%, the ability to walk almost normally and had an increased positive mental state.”
My scars have improved no end – they are flatter and the redness has decreased a lot. My Plastic & Reconstructive surgeon was very happy with my results and said they were the best he had seen after 6 weeks! Claire is both knowledgeable about the body and an amazing therapist. I highly recommend her and always leave her clinic feeling amazing and much lighter.

Three positive things I got from our session were –
- Connecting with my husband before the big day
2. Entering a deep reflective and meditative state
3. My husband enjoyed how he could work on how he could contribute to the labour process
Claire clearly was very experienced and knowledgeable about hypno calm birth. She taught us the techniques required to achieve our birth goals. We found Claire very comfortable to talk too and she was very professional. I would definitely recommend and have recommended Claire’s techniques to my girlfriends when they are ready to have babies.
• What other noticeable changes did you experience?
You initially think the techniques taught will only be useful for the labour process AND THEN, you begin the process of breast feeding!!!!. So I used the breathing and mind techniques to get through the hardest weeks of trying to breastfeed until we got through the painful side. Now my daughter is 3 months old I still use the breathing techniques to settle her if she won’t nap or is overtired.”
I feel like every session with her is a gift, and I recommend her to anyone confidently knowing that she will be able to assess your needs and work with you to reach a place of healing and freedom.”
I love the range of modalities that Claire uses and my body responds so well to her massages. I particularly like how respectful Claire is –
she listens and if you ask her to be careful around a particular area she is or if you ask her to not massage on a particular spot eg after an operation,
she avoids that particular spot. I think Claire is highly intuitive as she seems to know exactly where my body needs a massage and which modality my body responds to best. ”
I started having contractions about 10:30pm the night before. As a result of having a fabulous midwife and your class, I stayed at home until about 2pm the next day before going to the hospital where Finn was born just before 5pm. You gave me as a detailed insight into what my body would be going through so I felt relaxed and in control. I felt so calm and it was a wonderful experience. My partner was also tremendous and together we keep talking about how amazing the experience was.
Thank you for your class. Several of my friends are pregnant and I have referred them to your wonderful service.
We got to talking about birthing, and I mentioned that I was very keen to have a drug-free birth this time, as I had had a very difficult birth with my first child and recovery, which I felt was largely caused by the use of an epidural.
Claire came to my home and spoke with my partner and me about ‘natural birthing’, and coached me on how to work with the pain, and how to empower myself while birthing. I found her advice invaluable, and 2 months later, had a completely natural birth, and was able to work through the contractions at home, giving birth at the hospital 12 minutes after arriving! It was a completely empowering experience, so different to my first, with an outcome that was absolutely a result of Claire’s coaching and advice.
Three months after my second child was born, my relationship with her father broke down, and I began seeing Claire for counselling and support on a weekly basis for approximately 9 months. I found Claire to be an excellent counsellor, and an enormous support to me during that period. Claire has a lovely caring nature, and I felt very nurtured and peaceful after each session with her. We regularly set goals together for our counselling, and she helped me to see patterns in my relationships dating back to my childhood. I have returned to Claire intermittently for counselling since that period, and again, always feel supported and nurtured by our sessions. I would highly recommend her services.”
What three positive things did you get from your treatment/session?
1.Reflect on previous birth experience and how this was impacting on expectations and fears about the second birth and importantly, how you can positively address these feelings and refocus on a positive birth experience.
2. Practical techniques and resources to support relaxation and mindfulness that can be used to prepare yourself for labour and while you are going through labour and birth.
3. Excellent CD resource to assist with hypnobirthing – both preparing at home and to use while in labour.
Claire has a caring, calm and professional manner. Her manner helped build a positive relationship with both my partner and myself and an open environment where we felt able to discuss our hopes and fears in relation to the birth experience, ask questions and practice different strategies for birth.
What other noticeable changes did you experience as a result of your treatment/sessions?
Overall we felt better informed and more connected as a couple as we moved towards labour and birth.
Claire has a depth of understanding and level of perception that far outweighs most natural therapists. She is a very warm, instantly likeable and comfortable person; and she explains things about your body and her treatment in a very effective way. It is obvious by the way Claire remembers things about you and your life that she sincerely cares about you.
My body felt more aligned as a result of the treatment.
