Leo Sparkes, Principal Recruitment Consultant, Understanding Recruitment

"Clare is enthusiastic, passionate and clearly knows her stuff.

Would highly recommend!"


Natasha Woodland, Learning & Development Assistant, The CFO Centre UK

"Clare is really engaging and thought provoking.

I would really recommend her to any leader who wants to grow and learn."


Deborah Montano, Digital Marketing Specialist, Outwork

"I’m so happy to share how Positive Intelligence (PQ) has transformed my mindset. Doing the PQ reps is nothing short of a gamechanger!

With all the client work I am doing, this helps me touch base with my senses and gain focus. Another aspect that resonated with me was the emphasis on self-command, preventing my inner judge from taking over. It is still there I must admit, but this newfound control allowed me to always bring back my sage—to be in my state of calm and clarity.

For me, this isn’t just a programme; it is a must for personal growth, guiding you to a more positive and empowered way of thinking. Thanks, Clare for introducing PQ to us! Recommending PQ to anyone seeking a transformative journey toward mental and emotional fitness!"


John Carlo Cardenas, Lead Generation Specialist, Aurea Digital

“I recently had the pleasure of attending Clare's 7-Week Programme on Positive Intelligence. As someone interested in personal growth and developing healthy habits, I found it incredibly valuable.

Clare broke down the concept of Positive Intelligence in an accessible way, explaining how our brains have both a positive mode and a negative mode. She provided simple but profound tips for minimizing the time we spend in our brain's negative mode. Her insight helped me understand why I sometimes engage in negative thinking patterns even when I don't want to.

I appreciated that Clare shared relatable examples of applying Positive Intelligence techniques to my current situation. I left feeling motivated and empowered, with a renewed sense of control over my inner world.”
