"I first met Clara to learn about her Coaching offerings to see if I could engage her to do sessions Leaders at my company. Her kindness, empathy and wisdom were apparent from the first instant and as she described some of her offerings, I asked if she would Coach me. Two months later, I found myself back in Vorden, at the stables where she conducts her sessions - any horse and nature lovers dream. We then spent the afternoon doing: Tai Chi; 1:1 sessions with two horses; and a ceremony where I was left to process and let go of the people and behaviours I had identified as no longer serving me. The most dramatic point which led to a personal break through came ten minutes into interacting with Clara and the horses. I reached a level of self-understanding that removed the last layer of understanding of a behaviour that had previously served me all my life but which I knew I needed to let go of. Her compassionate, gentle and reassuring manner, combined with the intuition of the horses worked magic. If you are open to the sensitivities of animals and a Coach that will guide you with compassion and sincerity, I cannot recommend Clara enough!"
“Clara has partnered with Save A Warrior where I am a Board Member in helping change/ save lives challenged with Post Traumatic Stress by Mentoring and leading Equine Therapy. She exemplifies purpose greater than self serving others. She provides healing with immense love and compassion. I highly recommend Clara!”
"Your wisdom is as vast as the sea, and belies your years. Thank you for guiding us through a very difficult journey to freedom with the strength of a warrior and the passion of a mother. How you
balance all that power, with still treating us as valuable is awe inspiring. I apologize if it doesn’t make sense. There is so much I want to acknowledge and thank you for. It is a little overwhelming. I’ll just let you know that I will always hold you close in my heart.”
“Clara is a very professional coach, with warm human involvement and commitment. Clara guides each participant lovingly to the core question and with the horses as her co-coaches and her knowledge of systemic work insights become clear, so you can continue back on your life’s path . Special to have been able to capture her love for people and horses in the photos!”
“A very beautiful and valuable experience that I would not have wanted to miss. The pleasant and quiet guidance of Clara makes you feel at ease quickly and that which emerges is allowed to be there. I found the idea of the contact with the horse quite exciting. It turned out to be very well managed. I recommend this workshop to anyone, with or without a specific request, to better understand the themes that play in your life. Thank you, Clara and keep it up!”
“During our Tweedaagse directeuren stichting KOMT you showed us that horses have something special to offer to humans. In your work as a trainer coach with horses you where able to help us in finding an better connection with ourselves, the horses and other members of our group. It was all about true connection and the way the horses where tuning in on my (our) energy. In working with horses you helped me in showing and growing in my possibilities.”
