Claire Lea



A former corporate lawyer and general counsel, Claire understands the challenge of transitioning professional and technical expertise into excellent leadership. With a particular interest in helping high achievers perform with greater ease, Claire’s coaching is dynamic and transformational; it develops presence, impact and influence, it increases resilience, confidence and self-awareness and it challenges limiting beliefs, such as perfectionism and impostor syndrome.

Coaching style

Claire’s coaching is dynamic, collaborative and purposeful. Deeply pragmatic and solutions-focussed, Claire’s coaching is rooted in theory and best practice drawn from coaching, psychology, neuroscience and leadership theory. She uses a range of coaching methods and techniques to underpin her coaching, but her key focus is building honest coaching relationships and equal partnerships with clients. By creating a confidential, high-support and high-challenge environment which is truly independent of a client’s organisation, clients have the space to gain valuable insight, explore their blind spots, find and test their own solutions and develop key emotional intelligence capabilities such as resilience, confidence and impulse control.

Claire was informative, professional, creative and challenging throughout … the coaching sessions have enabled me to approach situations with a renewed confidence which has aided my own effectiveness no end and in turn had an impact on the business.
Claire is a hugely positive, supportive and insightful individual. She has the valuable skill of being able to help me identify options and strategies that I would not have thought of on my own and to guide me towards the optimal solution to a challenging situation.
