Clare Wildman is a Personal Change Coach based in Bletchley, Milton Keynes. Having spent 20 working years trying to work out what she wanted to be when she 'grew up' she is now coming of age with the launch of her own life coaching business.
Clare offers coaching in person at her home office or by telephone and provides each client with a Goals Pack and her newly created motivational Journal.
Having trained with The Coaching Academy Clare practices non-directional coaching and fully believes that her clients benefit the most from being helped to find their own solutions rather than being told what to do. She supports and encourages them every step of the way challenging them where helpful and always ensuring that she has their best interests at heart.
Cleints have said:
"Issues of self dout and lack of self confidence have been handled with care and sensitivity and I believe she has nurtured in me a deep sense of trust - I feel able to talk about any issue, no matter how private or sensitive."
"...talking to Clare made me consider things not contemplated before."

"...I have felt that some of the topics we have covered have been very dull, but Clare has stayed positive and pushed me to reach the end goal. Since I have been having coaching sessions one of my bad habits of procrastinating has started to disappear.."
"I found coaching extremely useful. Primarily because it provoked me to think about my future; where I want to be and what I need to accomplish to get there. I had not previously considered my aspirations to this extent, consequently I have gained more direction and am clear about the areas I need to work on. The single most important thing I achieved from the coaching, is the confidence to be able to set goals and work towards them."
I have had a wide range of roles which have given me a great grounding for my own business. They range from being a Marketing Statistician on leaving school to being an Admin Manager running several warehouse contracts and the site facilities before setting up my own business.
All my roles have taught me valuable skills and brought me into contact with some wonderful people but something was always missing. In 2007, with the support of my partner, I realised that the main inspiration within my roles came from the training and development aspects and so I decided that I would focus on this. I'd also heard about Life Coaching but wasn't really sure what it meant so booked myself a couple of sessions to look at what would be the best career option for me. I got a bit of a shock when I found that I wouldn't be given the answers but would have to work them out for myself. With my coach's support I did this and told my manager that I wanted to leave, ideally to train as a Life Coach.
This is the point where I found that said manager was a trained coach and he put me in touch with The Coaching Academy. The rest, as they say, is history.
I have now completed the Personal Performance Diploma and Advanced Diploma with The Coaching Academy and am currently working on the Corporate and Executive Diploma. My learning I know will continue day by day as there is so much to learn and so many ways that I can help my clients more. I'm relishing the challenges that running my own business brings (and there are more of them than I had ever imagined!) and I'm thriving on adding to my skills to be the best coach I can possibly be.
