THIS IS ME

I’m Claire, I’m a Certified Financial Coach and the founder of Mint Coaching.   I believe that financial wellbeing can empower you and build confidence around your financial decisions.   I founded Mint Coaching to help, guide, mentor and coach my clients to create healthy financial habits and find the path to achieve their goals.

 

I have over 20 years of experience in the business world, working with and learning from brilliant people and companies, enabling me to gain a huge variety of practical, financial tools and a depth of understanding.  I have journeyed through live event management, credit control, business development and project management, building financial knowledge in all areas before finding my niche and happily settling into personal financial management.  Over the years I have built informative relationships with IFAs and managed many aspects of family wealth including retirement planning, investing, debt, consolidating, loans, property, self managed investment platforms and even Crypto.

WHY I LOVE COACHING

So why did I choose to study and qualify as a Financial Coach?  I dearly wished to marry my love of working with people, real people, with my knowledge of personal finance. I had the privilege of being trained by Simonne Gnessen from Wise Monkey, who introduced financial coaching to the UK, and I have since worked with many inspiring clients.  Seeing my clients benefit from our time together, and hearing about the changes they implement and the positive effects they have, both inspires and humbles me.  

 

I am calm, patient and non-judgemental, logical and resourceful.  And my experience enables me to simplify the technical financial jargon that can be so overwhelming.  I have a deep and long term understanding of personal finance, not to mention experience in the many challenges that life throws at us.

 

I truly love helping people feel empowered and confident so that they can grab the reins and choose how they want their money to work for them.  Once my clients gain clarity over their finances, they have the confidence to be intentional with their decision making and live the lives they choose. That’s a real freedom, and it feels great.

With great thanks to Claire, I now feel more confident around my own finances and economic decision making.  Claire is so personable, understanding and knowledgeable, I felt immediately at ease with her.  I have already booked further coaching with Claire and would highly recommend her to anyone.
