Prior to becoming a shamanic practitioner, Claire worked in the corporate world mostly in marketing and communications. In London, where she lived for 15 years, she worked for organisations such as Associated Newspapers and the BBC. Prior to that, she lived in South Africa and worked for Berry Bush BBDO, Ogilvy and Mather and Associated Media Publishing.
In 2005 she left the corporate world to follow a career in the non profit sector, still remaining in the field of marketing and communications, working as a fundraiser for London’s largest homeless organisation St Mungo’s. Here she worked for six years until 2012.
It was during this time that she knew her life’s calling was to join together with others in the work of service.
In 2001, she began to pursue her passion of exploring spiritual concepts and theories, and the world outside the boundaries of the physical world. She enrolled in a course at the College of Psychic Studies to help her to learn more about the spiritual, and unseen, world. Here she found like-minded people and began learning in earnest.
“It was the first time that I felt I had come home.”
Following the initial introduction to the psychic and spiritual world, Claire enrolled in many different spiritual training courses and workshops, and began learning from the world’s most renowned spiritual, psychic and medium teachers. Some of these teachers include Gordon Smith, Richard Lawrence, Sue Allen, Julie Soskin and Avril Price.
In London she studied with the College of Psychic Studies, the Spiritualist Association of Great Britain and the School of Insight and Intuition.
In 2009 she had a spiritual calling towards shamanism. Her first training course was with The Sacred Trust in London, learning “The Shamans Pathway”. She then trained and qualified as a shamanic healer through Second Sight Healing in the UK. She studied the shamanic medicine wheel with The Eagles Wing and completed an advanced Soul Retrieval training with The Four Winds Academy. Claire also completed a course in Shamanic Communication with the Lynn Andrews.
Some of her shamanic teachers include Simon Buxton, Leo Rutherford, Neil Schapera, Jez Hughes and Lynn Andrews.
She began working as a shamanic practitioner in 2011.
Following a strong calling of the spirit, Claire moved back to her native roots in Cape Town, South Africa in 2012. She was a teacher at the School of Intuition and Healing in South Africa for eight years. She has a private one on one practice at Harmony Studio in Noordhoek, Cape Town, where she offers in person sessions and workshops as well as online sessions.
