Dr Claire Maguire
Hi, I’m Claire and can I let you in on a secret?
I find writing about myself almost impossible. I think it is that feeling of standing up and shouting from the rooftops – hey look at me, I am so amazing and look I have done all this neat stuff – so I must be awesome, right?!
You know… I nourish women to sensational living, to evoke the senses to develop a love affair with their body, their lives and their food. I enable women to step out as the star of their life.
Which all means in plain old English – I make you love you, eat great food and stop hiding your talent. So surely that should mean it would be easy for me to yell ‘look at me!’ Well, I can tell you I am a show off… I love to be on stage whether that is giving talks, workshops or dancing.
I love to create courses and programmes around food and life which are fun, inspirational and motivational. I am a passionate foodie – I really adore food and the effect it can have on me.
- I talk a lot
- I listen very well too
- I have had a diverse working life – from academic research, web content manager, SEO for luxury yachts, punk record label owner, starting a catering business to wellbeing coaching
- I am a geek – I have a PhD in Medical Biochemistry from Imperial College, London
- I am a mother with 2 wonderful girls
- I have been told I am rebellious and inspirational. I like both of those descriptions of me
- I have overcome addictions, break-downs and break-ups, loss of identity and breast cancer
- I really love to laugh
- I adore dressing up, high heels and red lipstick
- I also rock the natural look
- I enjoy a drink or two
- I am not perfect
- I have released my first recipe book – Fresh & Sophisticated
- I am a certified raw food coach, wellbeing life coach & kundalini yoga teacher
- I can be found eating raw chocolate and drinking green juice yet I won’t say no to a piece of quality steak and fries
- I am on a mission to get people off the all or nothing bandwagon around food and diet
- I love nature
- I also love cities
- I am many, many things as I am sure you are too
So let’s celebrate being unique
