Organisation 2019 & 2020
“We highly recommend Claire J. Gilchrist as trainer, coach and facilitator. Our organisation is transforming under her guidance.
Three training sessions for us included:
Redrafting the organisation’s constitution
Leadership skills
Team building skills
Organisational structure
Organisational culture
Change: the history, mission and vision of the organisation-and its culture
A strong focus on self-analysis, emotional intelligence, behavioural patterns, assertive behaviour and communication, anger management and conflict resolution.”
Corporate Client 2019

Training… “included leadership skills, assertion and communication skills…

In a nutshell, Claire was exceptional in coaching the roles that board members and senior managers/secondary and tertiary education staff had to embody during potential times of crisis as well as training the communication styles (written and verbal) so valuable in embodying these roles.”
Personal Client 2020
“Claire has assisted me in developing a new strategy and road map, to assist me in repositioning my career and work life, post non-renewal of job contract in 2020.
Claire has a very dynamic, “fit for purpose” approach and methodology, and helped guide me change my attitude, to create a genuine vision for a new career path.
I find Claire very intuitive and to the point-and she has an uncanny ability to unlock the inner stumbling blocks we all have in seeking the best road map and approach to repositioning one’s life career.”
Company Owner 2020

“During an initial training, it had become clear to me that follow-up work was needed-primarily in the field of leadership-for myself.

Claire fluently and easily dealt with the concepts of leadership, and covered the many aspects that make it up- a complex subject in its entirety.

She tested leadership styles (to identify mine); and coached an enlightening new way of me approaching leadership, to change the ways in which I managed not only my staff, but my clients.

I would not hesitate in recommending Claire to you.

She understood our needs, is great at customising work specifically geared for those needs- and her work resulted in greatly improved relationships and work performance in our office.”

19 year-old Personal Client 2018

“Claire helped me take the right steps towards overcoming my eating disorder which I had dealt with for 6 years.
Through her unique approach of counselling, she helped me to truly understand what the roots of my issues were; and showed me how to use various coping techniques, to help me live an actual life again-and see a bright future for myself, which I didn’t think was possible.
One thing I really respect and admire about Claire is her ability to be so open and honest about her own personal struggles, which made me relate to her a lot more, as well as open up to her.
I would describe my overall experience with Claire as positive, encouraging and life-changing.”
