  • Do you want to KICK-START the next chapter of your life?
  • KICK-START a new project but not sure how?
  • Do you have a great idea fighting to get out but unclear how to bring it to life?
  • Unsure of what you want from life, your goals, your priorities and what success looks like for you?
  • Are there things you keep putting off because you’re afraid to start?
  • Are you unsure of where you should focus your time and attention in order to MAKE IT HAPPEN for you?
  • Is your motivation high but your know how low?
  • Lost your MOJO?




Don’t panic, you are not alone!


You have great ideas and are brilliant at doing what you do professionally, what you may struggle with most is knowing what you really want. Defining your next big thing, getting clear on what success looks like for you, creating a clear vision for new ideas or opportunities and setting tangible goals you actually believe is sometimes not as easy as  you believe it should be.

Feeling confused, anxious and fearful of your next steps is completely normal, but clarifying what you want, why you want it and creating a SIMPLE structured ACTION plan to achieve the success you want is crucial. Getting support to help you realise your dreams will build your confidence, increase your motivation and help you get to where you want to be much faster than going it alone. Being held accountable to follow through on your ideas is the absolute key to moving forward with confidence.

So if this sounds like you then please read on

It sometimes feels like everyone else is more successful than you, like they have their shit together and they know where they are heading.  First of all, STOP COMPARING YOURSELF!

It’s frustrating and scary when you can’t seem to work out what it is you want, clarify your ideas, identify the right opportunities and make a plan to move forward. There comes a time when it’s up to you to get the support  you need, take control of the situation, put yourself in the driving seat and decide where you are heading.

I hear you because I’ve been there!

When I decided to leave my corporate career it was hard to know where to begin. I wanted a good work /life balance, more time for my children and myself and something that excited me and made me feel alive and passionate! Once I left that cosy cocoon (for all the right reasons) and set up on my own, I had to work it all out. I often felt frustrated and guilty that I found it so different and so difficult. As my business has evolved, I have had to piece together the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle and at times I’ve cried!!!! Yep … there I’ve said it.  The sheer frustration of trying to get it all to come together has at times been totally overwhelming and frustrating.

I know first hand what it feels like to be lost in a world that is full of so much information, should do’s and must do’s. Everyone you look at seems to be “in the know”, more experienced than you and pulling all the right pieces of the jigsaw puzzle together with ease. I now know that’s not always true, but there have been times when I wanted to spontaneously combust, jack it all in and get a proper job! But I haven’t and I won’t and that’s because over time I’ve worked it out. I’ve worked out the steps that I need to take to make MY life what I want it to be, ON MY TERMS  and YOU CAN DO IT TOO. You just need to GET CLEAR ON WHAT THAT LOOKS LIKE FOR YOU.


Once you understand what success looks like for you and clarify exactly what you want from your life, it makes it so much easier to make a plan to get to where you want to be. A clear path is SO much easier to follow.





Here’s what Becky had to say after a


“Sometimes the best person to see your life clearly, both business and personal, is someone other than you. Consultancy is a hectic choice of profession and I was busy working on too many projects that weren’t satisfying or playing to my strengths. I also had to balance income, time, a military husband and living in two different parts of the country. Claire used a series of practical tools along with her analytical brain to help map out all the options. She also gave me reassurance and the confidence to take the next leap of faith. Having been sceptical on life coaches, I’m now a firm fan! Within 3 months I’m working on projects I love, balancing life more effectively, looking after myself better and feeling really happy about now and the future. Thanks CP, you’re a legend!”

Here’s what Skye Holland had to say after a


During the lull of the summer months and after a brief intro to Claire Portis at the West Hampstead WIBN meeting I attended as a guest, I committed after consideration her ‘Kickstarter’ business coaching programmes.


We had our first explorative session in the glorious outside tables of the cafe at Kenwood House. From the start, Claire’s questioning was insightful, incisive and into the nub of everything I am doing with my startup and I felt immediately both relaxed that she had taken the trouble to “get it”(knew exactly my target audience), plus clearly very experienced and confident. This was infectious and things just flowed through the 3 hours and several cups of coffee.


Since then, I have, with her help and guidance implemented 95% of what was recommended to give my business the direction and oxygen it needed. Additionally and probably most importantly, she gave me the tools to deal with the general overwhelm I was feeling and much needed clarity around goals and strategy.


Apart from liking her immensely as a wonderful, warm and life-full woman, I couldn’t recommend her skills highly enough. It was such an investment – not just in my business but in myself as a business woman. She continued to monitor my progress with weekly calls and keeps tabs on my every move through FB, referrals and supports my social media activities. She has become one of my trusted team of business advisors who I feel supported and enabled by. I’m still attempting that last 5% :)…. but I always like to keep the best til last! You will not regret for one second an investment in Claire’s expertise. Thanks Claire!X
