Welcome!

My name is Clare Myatt and I am a somatic coach and psychotherapist, trained in the US and UK.

Why Somatic Coaching?

Originally trained as a psychotherapist in California in the 1990’s, I discovered somatic coaching soon after and have been integrating the breadth of coaching and depth of therapy in the decades since. Some clients come to me for coaching and uncover therapeutic issues lying in wait, others come for therapy and find their concerns are complimented by a coaching approach.

Whether we’re focusing more on therapeutic issues or coaching concerns, there is one commonality: the body. In the words of the American professor emeritus Jon Kabat-Zinn “wherever you go, there you are.” That’s why I’m committed to a somatic approach – no matter what you do or want to do, the body determines your capacity, competence, potential, motivation and implementation. 

If you want to shift the way you are, the way you feel, the way you are perceived, then a holistic approach incorporating the power of the body-mind-spirit is essential, in other words a somatic approach. “Soma” is the Greek word for the “body” in its wholeness; not just skin and bone, but the body in its aliveness, the complex web of neurology, psychology and biology  intertwining like the weave of a fabric.

By bringing attention to the body, being aware of your breathing, posture, and internal experience, the body becomes a resource rather than simply a vehicle for the head, enabling us to lead our own lives, families or others in organizations.

Check out any of the links and then take the next step – call or email to set up a time for an obligation free conversation.

I am one of those fortunate people who loves what they do and I truly look forward to connecting with you to explore the possibilities ahead.

Time to Pause

Time to Pause

Sometimes I wonder if my clients get sick of me saying “let’s pause, let’s take a breath” because I know I say it a lot. A Lot. Neuroscientists can tell us all about the benefit of settling the autonomic nervous system, calming the arousal in the sympathetic to the...

Finding your practice

“Oh” she said, “you’re the Clare who wrote that book!” Yep, that’s my heart-and-soul served up between the covers. It’s always a weird moment when relative strangers suddenly “know” so much about me, someone who’s generally introvert and definitely doesn’t blow their...

Saying Hello

Saying Hello

I was on retreat last weekend, spending many happy hours contemplating one bluebell dell after another as far as the eye could see. I basked in nature’s wonders where nothing is asked of me. I could body-feel deep interconnectedness - the trees absorb my out-breath,...
