My first book, Love & Imperfection: A Therapist’s Story is available to order now!

Due to the unprecedented circumstances of coronoviras, Clare is currently only meeting with clients virtually via webcam or phone. Please get in touch to discuss how this could work for you.

“Clare has provided me with a deep, unending level of strong and quiet support that has allowed me the space to create powerful change within. Our work together has been no less than life changing in such a positive way.”


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.

Understanding teenagers

Ever had a time when it seemed your teenager had turned into someone you no longer recognised? Worse still, actually resembled an alien from another planet? You are not crazy and, the good news is, neither is your teenager. Neuroanatomist Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, famous...

Deep Listening

“Oh, the comfort -- the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person -- having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep...
