Raw Horizons and the retreats at Split Farthing Hall were established by Dr Claire Maguire and Andrea Maguire, a step-daughter and step-mother team, to create a safe haven where women could come to transform their lives and resolve their issues. Somewhere to learn, to laugh and enjoy the experience in luxury.
The inspiration to create Raw Horizons came after Claire was diagnosed, at the age of 37, with breast cancer. Although Claire was already practising as a wellbeing life coach, this traumatic event shattered her own self-confidence and values about body image. It made her realise the importance of loving our bodies as they are, accepting who we are, being passionate about our lives and being kind to ourselves.
Using methods and techniques that Claire herself used to regain her own self-confidence, re-set her goals, recreate a positive body image and feel fabulous, she is now passionate about helping others achieve this and become the women they deserve to be.
Whilst Claire was the tour-de-force behind Raw Horizons, Andrea has always been inspired and driven by a quest to uncover how a woman can create her perfect life balance between career, family and herself. The fact that the family had recently restored their family home, Split Farthing Hall, gave Claire and Andrea the perfect venue to fulfil their dream.
Of course Claire and Andrea couldn’t have done all of this alone so read on to meet the rest of our wonderful and amazing team…
