Hi, I’m Clare! Thanks for dropping by.
If you’ve found your way here, you likely share our passion for creating workplace environments where your people can grow and thrive, rather than tread water to survive. What has become explicitly obvious in this uncertain and ever-changing business landscape is that burnout and stress is rife and we must shift the paradigm. We have to future-proof our workplaces by supporting our leaders to be healthy, high performing and a more luminous version of themselves.
Our passion for luminating leaders begins with my own story. The seeds of Clarety were sown back when I was one of those people just ‘surviving’. My whole focus was on driving business success and meeting the needs of others and I became disenfranchised in my life and stuck on the ‘hamster wheel’, my health suffered, my confidence dropped and the lights went out. I saw many people around me feeling the same way. Un-inspired, not-engaged and ultimately, leaving corporate life.
Forced into a period of rest and reflection I started to question the way I was leading my life. It stirred something inside me. I began to think, ‘What if life and business doesn’t have to be this way?’. ‘What if I could put my own personal wellbeing first and turn the light’s back on?’ ‘What if operating from a more energized place can deliver stronger results in business?’.
In the 8 year’s that have followed I learnt everything I could about wellbeing, mindfulness, coaching psychology, conscious capitalism, and Neuro-linguistic Programming and, with the help of a wonderful team of specialists, set about proving that shifting the paradigm of burn out is possible. We’ve now experienced first-hand, as have 1,000s of our clients, that by taking a more holistic approach to leadership development, it’s possible to luminate leaders to light up their organisations.

Clare's coaching abilities are second to none. Her manner is friendly and caring, whilst being objective and tapping into her business & life experience to help guide you through your goal setting. Her recommendations are well thought out and you leave the session feeling empowered and encouraged.
Clare has helped me chart a course through a real haze of uncertainty and fear, to absolute clarity, confidence and empowerment. She balances deep instinct, common sense, empathy and commercial reality to be able to provide a guiding hand that literally changed my life.
I tremendously enjoy working with Clare and her team. During a recent project, she was invaluable and truly instrumental in supporting us with her knowledge of the Australian advertising agency landscape. By bringing an external view and facilitating workshops and creative reviews with a wide variety of stakeholders, Clare was able to help us achieve a great result and do so in a collaborative manner. Clare's team also kept us on a tight timeframe, creating clarity around outcomes and key milestones and helping us to make informed decisions at the crucial points. If you have a strategic project that requires a high level of engagement with people inside and / or outside your business then Clare's strategic and 'coaching-style' approach will get you results. Thanks from all of us, Clare!
I didn't think it would be a good idea for Clare to coach me. We'd worked together and I thought we'd be too close or mess up a friendship. I couldn't have been more wrong. She is the perfect fusion of warm but firm, empathetic yet strong. She has an eclectic background and draws on wider experience than just her superb coaching/wellbeing technical knowledge. I am in such a good place. Her doing.
When I first met Clare I wasn't sure what to expect. 2 years on I am very clear! Clare constantly asks great questions of me, genuinely listens and challenges my thinking. At the same time her highly personable, caring approach to what she does shines through. She not only gets results as a coach - she is a pleasure to spend time with. I can't recommend Clare highly enough.
At the forefront of wellness and high performance coaching, Clare is able to bring well-being into the workplace in an efficient and thoughtful way. Clare is a fantastic coach as she is able to help people take the necessary steps to prioritise their well-being, set boundaries and maximise their potential.
Clare became my coach when the career driven executive, mother and family juggle was unsustainable. Clare led me through an invaluable coaching journey to understand the clutter, chaos and busyness and to carve out career evolution focused on what mattered most to me in life. Her intellect, insights, experience and personal manner combine to deliver a powerful coaching experience with outcomes that will transform your life. She is a Master Coach.
Clare is one of those rare gems I have had the pleasure to partner with on delivering the WPPAUNZ Wellbeing programme. I have also worked with her as a senior women in leadership when she was in our agency world. She has been an incredible support to me personally and professionally in delivering our programme. She brings all of her brilliance, compassion, energy and wisdom to every initiative we deliver together to help our people take care of their wellbeing. She is incredibly passionate about changing our industry for the better. Not only is she an incredible strategist, she is a wise soul who has coached me and many of our leaders to show up as our best selves. There are people who come into your life that inspire you to be a better human and an even better leader. Clare is one of those people to me.
Clare is a fantastic speaker who talks from the heart. She shares honestly and openly about the challenges of being a corporate leader who is striving to climb the career ladder, at the expense of her personal health & relationships. Her words hold lessons for us all. Her talks always bring with them both poignant messages and practical tools and frameworks that can work with your team's mental health, wellbeing or challenging their thinking about what it takes to lead in today’s increasingly complex world. I would highly recommend Clare to bring an entertaining, interactive and inspirational talk into your team learning sessions or off-sites.
What I loved about Clare was her holistic approach to career development. She very much sees a connection between your values, relationships, mental and physical well-being, passions, goals and vocation. Clare helped me distill what it was that I really wanted. Through various exercises, visualizations and and often uncomfortable conversations, we were able to hone in on what was most important for me in life and work - wanting to make a difference in the lives of others. Clare has a very kind, supportive and personable approach. She genuinely cares about her clients’ well-being, and really wants to see them thrive. Working with Clare has been invaluable for me in terms of getting clarity on the kind of leader I want to be, my values and my behaviors, and actionable tasks to bring into the everyday, to ensure you stay on track. I would recommend her without hesitation.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for having me as part of the Wellbeing Ambassador program. It’s such a great and important initiative. I absolutely loved it and am so grateful for the training and amazing experiences. From the fantastic first two days with Emma and Clare, to the beautiful time in Rose Bay with The Search Inside Yourself program. I learnt a lot, met amazing people (more than at any other WPP initiative) and found a real love of passing on the knowledge to the team here. I know they appreciated it too.
I couldn’t resist but share this with you, given it was born out of a day with you. The House Captains presented their plan to the Exco yesterday. They were blown away and said ‘it was ‘hands down one the of the best internal presentations they’ve seen’. With very little prompting from me, the team took the language and narrative from your notes and set the scene beautifully – they told stories about why it was so important to focus on these programs, what it meant to them personally, their peers and why it underpins the Mediacom culture. They designed the framework and slides all themselves with me simply being a sounding board and coach….vs doing it for them. Yay! So thank you – the CEO was literally glowing with pride.
I went into that session feeling like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders – you have both left me feeling so much lighter!
Thank you for an amazing session.
This program gave me comfort that I was not alone on my journey and it was great hearing from and supporting others on theirs’s too. The content is phenomenal – how it relates to yourself, the world, the insights, and tools, it just empowers you to move forward. I think the things that really hit home for me were losing and creating a new identity. The realisation, I’m never going to change if ever going to let go of who I was. This coupled with emotional agility, self-care, and adopting a compassionate mindset have been game changes for me.
It really feels good to have that support around you for 100 days and my coaching buddy has become a true friend. I really feel that I now have the courage, clarity on my strengths and, the community around me to empower me to firmly step into this next phase of my career.
This program was really powerful and empowering, it helped me change my patterns of thinking and make different lifestyle choices that have completely changed my life.
Yes, this was how I was feeling at the start of the year so I decided to take on a monster challenge to uplevel my habits and kick me into my next phase of growth. Here’s the update on how I am tracking with the #75hard challenge. For those that didn’t see my email...
I wanted to talk today about that feeling of being ‘trapped’, ‘unmotivated’ or like there’s no way out of the situation you are in except perhaps to resign and become a florist, work in a café or basically do anything that can cool off your brain or remove the...
