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

Why Somatic Coaching?

Unless and until a body oriented approach is included in the equation of change, change may happen briefly but cannot be sustained over time. If someone wants to shift the way they are, the way they feel, the way they are perceived, then a holistic approach incorporating the power of the body-mind-spirit is essential.

This body oriented approach is what we term “somatic” – “soma” being the Greek word for the “body” in its wholeness; not just skin and bone, but the body in its aliveness. This approach acknowledges the latest research revealing humans as an integrated neuro-psycho-biological being. Our neurology, psychology and biology are intertwined like the weave of a fabric and cannot be separated out.

By bringing attention to the body, being aware of our breathing, posture, and internal experience, the body becomes a resource rather than simply a vehicle for the head. As such, the body becomes a powerful and invaluable resource as the leader of our own lives, families or the leader of others in organizations.

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.

Word of the Year

Word of the Year

I’ve never liked New Year’s Resolutions. Starting out the year with an almost guaranteed disappointment doesn’t make much sense to me. So when a friend told me about Word of the Year, the idea really resonated. I’ve enjoyed planning one each year of the decade now...

How long does change take?

How long does change take?

If this title caught your eye, I’m guessing you’d like me to answer with a reassuring “oh, six sessions should do it.” But I’m not going to lie or beat about the bush. Change takes way way longer than any of us really want to admit. Supposing you cut the thumb of your...
