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

“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, they 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.

Sniffing judgment

Taking a break from writing yesterday (what better way than set the timer for five minutes and head over to Facebook for some entertainment?) I stumbled across this fabulous blog by Gretchen Schmelzer, Ph.D. on healing shame. She likens it to a high altitude climb -...

Wild Geese by Mary Oliver

I was raised to think poetry had to rhyme. Pretty limiting, but there we have it. So it was with joy and amazement I discovered a whole other world of gorgeous poetry, mostly courtesy my work at Strozzi Institute where its founder,...

Token of your love

Christmas cards languishing "on sale" and already Valentine's day cards available on the next shelf. Yikes! I'm sad the original opportunity to pen love notes to a sweetheart has disappeared in favour of what even Wikipedia dubs a Hallmark holiday (second only to...

Not sober yet….

He snuck through the “out” doors on the bus, unseen by the driver. Wearing a suit, no tie, at first glance the man appeared to simply be flouting the rules. As the bus rolled on towards Paddington, his head leaned against the window and I had my first inkling all was...
