I was struggling with the direction of my art, which was affecting my motivation and depleting my inspiration. I reached out to Claudia and she responded with such a  positive energy. With each session Claudia she helped me clarify my thoughts, see the strengths in my work and understand where to pull back. Whether her insights reflected positively or challenged me, she was always so thoughtful and smart. Claudia has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to artists, galleries and collectors. This is what makes her coaching one of a kind. After our sessions I had a renewed energy and a clearer vision of who I was, or could be, as an artist. Holly   

I enjoyed the session so much. You were amazing and I felt there was so much clear practical advice. Practicing speaking and role-play feels awkward at first, but it somehow gets that fear out of the way. I hope that next time I’m in this situation, I shall be able to put it into practice, as I realise I have probably made many classic mistakes in the past, therefore missing opportunities through shyness or nerves. - Hermione 

This workshop came at a pivotal time for me and I’ve come away feeling really positive about the things I need to focus on and develop in the coming months. I can feel momentum building now. Your feedback has been invaluable and the safe space you created was warmly received. - Suzi

I felt you really listened and understood where I was coming from and gave me some great advice for how to get where I'd like to be. Thanks for being so encouraging. - Steph

Claudia's got a good buzz. She makes people feel at ease instantly. It was great to have her on the stand, as a buffer, when people are critiquing my art and my nerves are shot. It's amazing to have someone speak on your behalf in a positive way and bring more insight to the work than I can offer. She's got a good heart and a lot of time for people.  Andrew  

I honestly had the best time at the workshops and it's given me the biggest confidence boost ever. I loved how intimate the group was, it felt really special to have so much time dedicated to us, not just as individuals but as a group of artists. I liked that each session had an agenda. I also liked that the conversation around each point never felt forced and you made me feel like asking any question was completely okay. I thought being in the setting of a gallery as well was very poignant, it brought everything back home and really reinforced the fact that It IS possible! I also loved the fact you incorporated breathing exercises/meditative, conscious vibes to the session, that was so special thank you. 

Thank you for all your advice and time on the consulting course.  It helped me reflect on my art career so far and what is important to me and how do I wish to proceed.  I have been bit overwhelmed by all the different threads I want to pursue but now have tried to categorise them into a 5 year plan, which helps.  I have also structured my time better at studio, by thinking of when I do admin and when I "create"; now I feel I have a routine to work to rather than jumping from one thing to another- so thanks for helping me realise that.
