“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.

The imperfection of creativity

As a creative working with other creatives, I really appreciate Ira Glass's perspective on how it feels to inhabit such shoes. In fact, I laughed out aloud the first time I saw this innovative presentation of the creative process. Hope you enjoy it as well....

Sharing a secret

I’ve been watching Patrick Melrose. Loosely based on his own life, the author Edward St. Aubym tells a gasp-worthy story of privileged dysfunctional families, child abuse, alcoholism and drug addiction, with threads of redemption surfacing occasionally. I’m...


I have great admiration for Esther Perel. A relationship therapist who doesn’t pull punches, she simply tells it like it is with confidence and poise. Her latest TED talk may catch the eye of the unfaithful but, as she says, it’s for anyone who has ever...

Adversity Advantage

"An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward.When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great.So just focus, and keep aiming." Someone facing life-changing adversity recently shared this...
