Our Team

Raw Horizons Wellbeing Academy was established by Dr Claire Maguire and Andrea Maguire, a step-daughter and step-mother team to provide small exclusive training courses specialising in Wellbeing Coach Training. Developed and taught personally by Claire and Andrea, our exclusive accredited training courses ensure are given their full attention, expertise and encouragement.

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.


Dr Claire Maguire

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

She leads by example, also running her successful private life coaching practice plus the renowned Raw Horizons residential wellbeing retreat programs.


Andrea Maguire

Whilst Claire was the tour-de-force behind Raw Horizons Academy, Andrea 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.

Of course Claire and Andrea couldn’t have done all of this alone so read on to meet the rest of our wonderful and amazing team…
