Change your thoughts and you change your world
- Norman Vincent Peale
I am a coach, but not in the traditional sense. I rely on intuition and my own authentic creative self to guide us through our sessions.
I coach the whole person, you as an individual, a creative and a business owner. Our coaching stretches across all levels and impacts all area's of your life.
I focus on the inner journey and the outer world so that all parts of who you are can come into alignment.
Creating a safe space to work together is important to me.
You can trust in my 15 years experience as a creative and business leader. I won't ask you to create like me or follow my journey, I'll respect your own creative path and help you to uncover your own unique source of creativity and a business that works for you.
Managing Director Graphistudio UK Graphistudio Ireland
I have worked with Clare Louise for over 10 years and watched her grow from a good photographer to an amazing photographic artist and business woman, from competent and unsure, through tough personal times, Clare Louise has evolved herself and her business acumen to someone who has so many amazing talents to share.
I understand from personal experience what it is to be a creative business owner
The Board Of Directors
Master Photographers Association
Clare Louise took on the organisation when it was about to collapse, brought about by poor management. She restructured many of the internal processes that enable the association to run more efficiently, both in the UK and abroad, especially the Far East.
She has organised with multinational organisations for the benefit of the association.
Honest and trustworthy and a determination to succeed, a strength sorely needed in our industry.
One Vision Imaging
I’ve come across many talented photographers throughout my career. Many of them with substantial technical know-how and often with a great understanding of natural light which is possibly their greatest gift. This however doesn’t necessarily ensure they unlock their true creative self. Opening up your inner-self, letting your imagination run wild and then finding a way to capture and recreate your creative thoughts is an empowering practice. Clare-Louise’s unique approach is both humbling and exhilarating. Having succeed herself in this challenging industry Clare-Louise not only helps deliver this process, but will link it to self-belief and a drive and enthusiasm to turn your creativity into a profitable business.
I know it's not easy asking for help, I know how it feels to think you're supposed to have it all worked out too.
It's not easy doing it all alone, the ebb and flow, the highs and low's, the successes and the failures.
It's tough staying at the forefront of your creative game, always striving for more, it's even harder trying to make a successful business out of it.
I won't promise you a quick fix, I won't offer you a magic wand, what I will hold is a safe space where we can explore those challenges, limiting beliefs and fears to create a solution that works for you so you can take the next steps in your life, your art and your business with clarity, authenticity and purpose.
Are you ready? Let's take these next steps together. You don't have to do it alone.
As well as one to one coaching I offer a number of ways in which we can work together. Designed to meet you wherever you are on your creative path.
I run a number of in person active learning workshops throughout the year where we explore what's holding us back, personal empowerment and authentic creative development.
I'm skilled in providing a safe space to learn, explore, challenge and stretch your range creatively and in business.
I facilitate retreats both in the UK and outside, and co-create with other specialists in their fields.
I'm committed to providing you with the best experiential learning environment to encourage rich learning and deep transformation.
I have a subscription based online learning platform called the 'Creatives Space' with tools and resources for personal, business and creative development. Perfect for any creative whose ready to begin the journey of creative discovery.

What people say
Clare Louise guided me through my business and really helped things become clear in my mind. I had a good honest look at where I was. I was able to break my business down and focus on one area at a time and really see what needed to change.
This was so helpful because Clare Louise helped me look at my business in ways I had never done before. She was perfect at asking the right questions and offering scenarios that then helped me create the right solutions for my business. I knew I had a good product but Clare helped me to see its full potential.
It was like you pulled my head off, thrust your arm down my neck and removed that fuzzy knot of confusion, tenderly replacing it with clarity and direction. I've never experienced this.
Clare Louise is willing to go all the way for her coaching clients. She has a wide range of coaching skills and a lot of courage to give you exactly what you need as a client, from sweet comfort to fierce challenges.

Clare-Louise is unique. Her coaching blends a strong understanding of the power of emotions, energy and human connection with an entrepreneurial and creative rigour. She creates a space for you to grow but at the same time takes no nonsense, lovingly holding you to accounts. The result is truly transformative.
You really do understand, creating a safe place for me to explore difficult topics. Trust, challenge and gentleness, these qualities and more you exuded through our sessions enabling me to let go and dance with life again and let my creativity flow.
I've stopped seeing the excuses and started seeing ways to achieve my goals ... Clare Louise's voice will remain in my head guiding me forward for some time to come
Clare-Louise’s first coaching session was a very powerful experience for me, it set me up to a new way of being and thinking. Her supportive guidance has helped bring clarity and self- awareness of who I am as a creative. I was able to give myself the much overdue permission to say, YES!, to my artistic dreams. Yes, to exploring my artistic journey as a ‘Self-full’ creative.
It’s by far the best thing I have done in my professional career – the fact that it has also been life-changing was amazing. CL has incredible intuition, knowing exactly how far she needs to push people. She is challenging and warm and has been a total gift to me and my work.
CL helped with my confidence and believed in me way before I did. She kept the focus on our reason for working together when I probably would have put it on the back burner – I now have the courage to continue by myself. I can’t recommend her highly enough
At first I was skeptical I had been in this lull for so long I thought how would someone else be able to help me out of this sink hole. Now, I would think you were crazy if you passed up the opportunity to work with Clare Louise.
Clare Louise seemed to get deep into the darkest parts of my brain and pulled out my anxieties, which was a huge release. Reconnecting with myself was a massive challenge, I didn’t believe in myself but, when you have Clare Louise and a group of people (now friends) cheering you on and celebrating your strengths, you can’t help but feel a huge weight has been shifted from your shoulders.
Clare Louise gets you out of your head and listening to your heart instead. She has this ability to somehow make you feel comfortable even though you’re talking about uncomfortable emotions. She has so much to give and is very generous with her time. Thank you Clare Louise for believing in me, showing me how to find my creativity again, bringing my passion for photography back and allowing a free space with no boundaries for this to happen. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much. xx
Clare Louise gives you the strength to break down barriers, feel the fear and do it anyway – her business coaching is invaluable to me.
