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.

I’m back from my walk, this morning’s a bracing one amidst leaf-strewn pathways as the days shorten and autumn draws in. I love this season of change (although I have to admit, not the one ahead). Some mornings I listen to classical music, others to...
In a couple of weeks time I am celebrating thirty-five years’ sobriety. For the uninitiated that means twelve thousand seven hundred and seventy-five continuous days without alcohol. Of any kind. That’s what surprises most people. “Not even a sip?” Nope. No sherry...
