About Us

Raw Horizons Wellbeing Academy was established by Dr Claire Maguire to provide small exclusive training courses specialising in Wellbeing Coach Training courses. Developed and taught personally by Dr Maguire herself, her exclusive AC Accredited training courses ensure she gives her full attention, expertise and encouragement.

claire-round-4She is passionate about life coaching and the benefits that can be derived from it. With her emphasis on Wellbeing Coaching, Dr Maguire specialises in training a small number of new life coaches of exceptional quality and integrity in this rapidly growing and exciting market.

She is leading by example, as she also runs her successful private life coaching practice plus renowned residential wellbeing retreat programmes, Raw Horizons Wellbeing Retreat, at Split Farthing Hall.

The inspiration to create Raw Horizons came after Claire was diagnosed, at the age of 37, with breast cancer. Although Claire was already practising as a wellbeing life coach, this traumatic event shattered her own self-confidence and values about body image, making her realise the importance of loving our bodies as they are, accepting who we are, being passionate about our lives and being kind to ourselves.

To assist in providing the best instruction for Raw Horizons’ students, Dr Maguire shares the training with Andrea Maguire and Kay Turner.

Kay TurnerKay Turner not only trained as a Wellbeing Coach under Dr Maguire, but is also lead facilitator on the personal development programmes for Raw Horizons Retreats. This ensures she keeps her coaching experience current and practical.

Kay’s extensive experience of teaching and the mind-body-spirit connection make her an exceptional wellbeing and spirituality coach. Through her background in theology, spirituality and psychology, her down-to-earth nature makes her a natural wellbeing teacher.


Andrea MaguireWhilst Dr Maguire was the tour-de-force behind Raw Horizons Academy, Andrea Maguire also contributes to the curriculum in her business related fields of expertise.

Andrea has many years of working in private enterprise, from starting her own IT/website design business over 20 years ago to consulting for luxury brands. Her background as an engineer means she enjoys all the technical aspects.

‘Thank you Claire for the inspiration and the whole experience. I loved everything about the week.’ June R.
