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.

“BODYSET!” exploded spontaneously from my mouth. “I have never used that word before!” “Quick” she said, “write it down.” I paused to look for pen and paper, none to hand, and I already knew this was a word I’d remember with ease. It had such resonance, like a gift...
The holiday season has arrived and with it, for many of us, comes inordinate pressure to spend happy meaningful time with family who may, or may not, be our first choice for company. I’m struck by the happy smiling faces featured in all the advertisements at this time...
All but one or two of my clients have transferred our work to zoom since the beginning of the pandemic. I’ve really appreciated the comparatively low-effort it takes to work from a home office set up to meet my needs (and ideally my wants) - I’m annoyingly picky about...
I love this quote. "In life, you will realize there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will use you, some will love you, and some with teach you. But the ones who are truly important are the ones who bring out the best in you. They are the...
As a somatic practitioner, I’m especially interested in how you perceive yourself and the world around you. As someone also specialising in recovery from trauma and addiction, I believe the extent to which we experience our senses and sensations has direct bearing on...
