Clare is a Marketing Consultant, Yoga Teacher, Therapist & Writer based in London.
A believer and advocate in the art of possibility, she is passionate about all areas of her work and strongly believes that you do not have to pick only one thing for a career in life. All that matters is that you pick the things you love and do them to your best!
From a young age Clare took a strong interest in all things creative and decided early on in life that she did not want to build a career that she wasn’t passionate about. Having been brought up with an appreciation of complementary therapy she had always liked the idea of working with people and decided to study Indian Head Massage to see if therapy might be something she could enjoy as a career. To support her desire to study independently, she took a job working as an outsourced account manager for a well-known venture capital company in London, and it was this that first led her, partly by accident, into a marketing career as the company offered her a job working directly with their in-house marketing team. She took the job and loved it, but continued to do further study alongside her working life. Over the next couple of years she qualified in Massage & Sports Therapy and took a weekend job working in a therapy centre where she also ended up qualifying as a Beauty Therapist because the owner of the centre asked her if she fancied it and she figured ‘why not!?’. Throughout all this time she continued to progress in her marketing role and discovered that hands-on therapy was not her only passion in life, she had grown to absolutely love marketing.
Alongside all of this she maintained a regular yoga practice having taken her first class when she was 15, and after completing an enjoyable Foundation Training certificate with the British Wheel of Yoga decided tot embark on her yoga teacher training with The Life Centre in London.
Since this time Clare has continued to embrace each and every one of her passions with an overall aim not to take any of them for granted. She has worked in a variety of marketing roles across various sectors, including a few years very recently working as Head of Marketing & Communications for an award-winning international architecture firm. She has also taught yoga in both the UK and abroad, worked with a number of athletes and individuals as a therapist and became a regular feature writer for Yoga Magazine. With a wealth of experience behind her she now works as a Marketing Consultant and Project Manager, teaches yoga and provides therapy on a regular basis and enjoys exploring a variety of different writing opportunities as well as helping people learn and understand how to get the most out of their lives. She is dedicated to all aspects of her work and has found that having multiple disciplines in her career only serves to improve each and every aspect of her life as she gets to enjoy the diversity of working in such different fields which, in truth, she believes are not so very different from one another. After all, marketing, yoga and therapy all have one major thing in common; they all aim for betterment and results and focus around her favourite thing; possibility!
