Dr Claire Maguire
She 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 select number of new life coaches of exceptional quality and integrity in this rapidly growing and exciting market.
Using methods and techniques that she herself used to regain her own self-confidence, re-set her goals and recreate a positive body image after her trauma with breast cancer, she developed her own in-depth proprietary program for wellbeing coaching.
She is leading by example, as she also runs her successful private life coaching practice plus renowned residential wellbeing retreat centre, Raw Horizons Wellbeing Retreat.
With a PhD in medical biochemistry followed by working in top universities as a researcher, Claire uses her analytical mind to laser in and get results whilst her background as an independent music company director utilises her creative mind to evoke fun, laughter and out of the box thinking to create lasting change.
By setting up and running her own private life coaching practice plus establishing Raw Horizons Wellbeing Retreat as the UK’s leading personal transformation retreat centre, she also has direct personal experience with business start-ups. She has in-depth experience of business branding, marketing and establishing a niche, plus the skills and knowledge of how to develop, package and sell coaching programs.
Dr Maguire has been a Wellbeing Life Coach since 2008. Claire founded Raw Horizons Wellbeing Retreats in 2011 and has been running these successful self-development programmes and residential retreats since then.
She has trained and worked with outstanding world-class coaches such as Gabrielle Bernstein, Judymay Murphy, Karen Knowler and Tony Robbins to learn extensively about wellbeing and lifestyle, how the mind works and success.
Her experience started in food relationship coaching, helping people to make better choices regarding food and how food effects our emotional and physical health. This expanded out to cover life coaching as she discovered when people present with an issue regarding food, it addresses all areas of life. This led to developing and using techniques to combat stress, gain confidence and uncover a passion for life. Her coaching approach is holistic coaching, vision coaching and solution-focused coaching. She sees the client as a whole so all issues are addressed, she anchors into the vision with the understanding that focusing on the outcome desired can erase self-doubt and drive motivation and by asking specific questions about how they will achieve the goal creates clarity and momentum.
She specialises in linguistics and the power of the words, mindfulness, food relationship, stress management, confidence, self-expression and well-being.
Her own health challenges with breast cancer and overcoming the traumatic treatment have reinforced in her the upmost importance of our own self-worth, health and positive body image. This is what drives her to inspire other people to live the life they desire.
Claire has reached out to hundreds of people with her engaging talks, successful retreat programs, popular workshops and her private coaching practice. She is a published author (you can read more about her books here) and has received significant acclaim in the national press. She also blogs about life, food, self-care and raw food recipes.
For Claire, learning never stops and she is always updating her knowledge and skill set to ensure her clients and students receive the best information available.
