Hello & welcome.

I’m Clare and I’m here to support you to harness the transformative power of your creativity and story, and cultivate tools and practices for leading your one wild life. I’m a creative mentor, author, writing coach and host of Wild Edge Retreats. Alongside that I make art, write and teach yoga- essential ingredients I have found for fuelling my creative fires. I currently live in beautiful West Cork, Ireland.

Through my online and in-person courses, workshops and resources, I offer skills, support, techniques and valuable lessons I have discovered along my own path of learning. They are skills that I believe are vital to any creative or leadership endeavour and will help you nourish your one wild life, from the inside out.

My Story

Maker. Doer. Dreamer. Schemer- Creative & Social Entrepreneur- Author - Photographer - Hatha Yoga Teacher- Artist- Educator.

Growing up on the island of Ireland, I’ve always had a sense of being on the edge of things- the edge of Europe, the edge of the Atlantic and the edge of the known. Island life has cultivated a deep sense of curiousity within me where and I found myself asking, over and over, ‘What is on the other side? What else is possible? And how do I get there?’ Those questions have taken me around the globe several times over, weaving me through an array of adventures, encounters and deep cycles of learning. From a degree in Oxford University to establishing innovative social change projects, from writing books to launching a school for entrepreneurs, my story is one of experimentation, diving in and trusting along the way.  Read my full story >

The Why?

I believe there has never been a more urgent time for us all to engage with our vital and innate creativity and foster our own leadership. Creativity is not just a nice side plate, or an accessory to our being, but an integral component of how we as a human race and a planet are going to survive. We need more creative thinking for things to systemically change at a personal and a collective level.

Our world is in chaos. There are divisions, antagonisms, fractions, tensions, differences and schisms around every bend. There are problems with such complexity that no amount of linear thinking is going to solve. It is time to step fully into our right brains and allow new approaches and solutions to emerge, then collaborate with our left brains for fresh strategies to evolve. Read more about my creativity manifesto here >
