As a leader in a business, inspiring your team to produce results they had no idea they could achieve is a key part of your role.
But you’re still human.
There are times when you doubt yourself, despite the evidence that you're doing well, and it gets as far as Imposter Syndrome.
You lie awake at 3am, scared they'll 'find you out' as a fraud. You worry that you don't know as much as you should - or as you think others do. You justify turning down golden opportunities, telling yourself you're too busy. You don't speak up when you have brilliant ideas, in case they figure out they made a mistake in choosing you.
But unlike your team members, you don’t feel you can tell anyone.
Until the day when you have to. And by then it can be too late.
Pushing down our secret 3am doubts and pretending it’s all ok can make us irritable, turn us into fire-breathing perfectionists and it even rewires your brain, making it harder for you to perform at the level that used to come naturally.
And I know I don’t need to go into what that could be costing your business. Or your career. Or your health. Or your relationships. You know that already.
I have spent 15 years specialising in mentoring senior business leaders to ‘get out of their own way’, without pretending, white-washing or ignoring how they feel, deep down inside.
But I don’t do ‘sticky plasters’. If you work with me, I teach you the techniques you need – for life. Clearing those hidden, out-of-date blocks can be fast, fun and forever.
It sets you free from having to push on through your hidden fears, cuts your stress levels and helps you to turn your inner critic into your biggest cheerleader.
And - the fun bit - you get to take off those masks you have been wearing to protect yourself. You get to become more of who you really are, no longer affected by others' opinions. No longer comparing yourself to them.
And that's the perfect way to step up to the next level on your leadership journey.
I'm going to guide you through each step of the ditching Imposter Syndrome process, with a combination of weekly video training, weekly group mentoring calls,
and a 2-day in-person retreat in Salisbury (UK).
October 14th 2019
To kick us off, we'll deep-dive on your Big Why for this journey. Hint: it's the secret to staying motivated.
Plus we'll be busting the most common Imposter Syndrome myths, including well-intentioned advice that can actually make it worse.
October 21st 2019
Imposter Syndrome goes beyond 'mindset' and positive thinking, but the best place to start when you're ditching it is with choosing which thoughts to feed.
This module will teach you exactly how to do that. I've taught this stuff for nearly two decades to many thousands of people. It works like a magic wand.
We take two weeks over this one, to allow you to master the techniques.
November 4th 2019
This module is about clearing out your hidden blocks, beliefs, fears and excuses - the ones that make our big decisions for us, without even realising.
It's a sticky-plaster-free zone.
And it's fun.
We take two weeks for this module, to give you plenty of time to clear out those hidden blocks.
Once that's done, we can deep-dive into the real triggers for Imposter Syndrome!
Two Days In Salisbury (UK)
November 19th & 20th 2019
Having laid the ground-work, in these two in-person days, we'll clear out the root-cause-level triggers for Imposter Syndrome, so you don't have to think about it any more.
You'll learn tools that work for life - to clear any block that comes up, without pretending, white-washing or forcing yourself to push on through.
Plus we'll lay the foundations for you to lead from your Soul, with your feet on the floor.
2nd December 2019
In our final module you'll learn my proven strategies for consciously creating your future, with no unicorns required.
Grounded and practical, you'll learn how to align with the 'future you', to become that whole version of you, right here, right now.
And you'll create your Massive Action Plan for the next five years of your leadership journey.
I love the way Clare explains things.
Her extensive experience of running her own business, writing her books, previous roles in market research and training in NLP and meditation seem to have been blended to create the perfect course leader.
I'd highly recommend Clare. I trust her authority as an author and an imposter syndrome expert.
You're a business leader or established entrepreneur. This isn't for newbies. Sorry.
You're an action-taker, not a whinger. And you'll carve out the time to make sure you get the results you're looking for.
You're passionate about leading your team, hungry to make a bigger difference in the world, and you have made the commitment to your future to clear out Imposter Syndrome and its friends, once and for all.
I have been a certified NLP Trainer since 2003, which means I'm an expert in designing courses that work fast - getting you maximum results for minimum effort. It also makes me a pro at decoding the 'user manual' for your brain.
My prior background in engineering, specialising in Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma, means that I'm a great strategist with a fluff-free approach and a passion for sharing inspirational how-to that makes changing your life fast, fun and forever. I'm also a certified meditation, mindfulness and yoga teacher, so you get a generous dollop of that, too. My clients call it 'engineer-approved woo-woo'.
As the author of seven books and a regular radio and podcast interviewee, I have helped thousands of entrepreneurs and passionate world changers with getting 'out of their own way', overcoming Imposter syndrome - so they can make a bigger difference in the world. And I'd love to get to share those strategies with you in this bootcamp.
Clare has a way of explaining things, so you create breakthroughs. Working with Clare has been the difference between being stuck and frustrated, and being on the path to creating my dream business and life.
MD of One Man Band Accounting
I have had so many a-ha moments with Clare's work. I now have clarity for how to leverage my gifts. Clare also turned on the lightbulb for me so I have the inner motivation to carry me all the way through.
To do this with me 1:1 would costs £9,995 for three months of support (you can sign up below, if that's what you're looking for). And I only take on a handful of clients for such intensive mentoring each year.
I want to make your Imposter Syndrome bootcamp as accessible as possible, whilst still giving you the quality of course and support you deserve. So the regular price for this 6-week group programme is just £2,995.
That's less than the cost of a day's 'pick Clare's brain' session with me. And you'll get a whole six of working with me, getting answers to your questions, and sharing your journey with your fellow bootcampers.
PLUS if you join us by 5pm (UK time) on 30th April, you qualify for the super early bird rate, which is just £2,495. AND you get the early bird bonus of a 30-minute one-to-one mentoring session with me, too.

Ideal for MD/CEO-level leaders
You will need to find 2-3 hours per week to get the most from this programme.
That will pay back every single day for the rest of your life.
If you genuinely 'can't' find the time, the bonus masterclass will help.
But only you can decide whether this time investment is worth it for you.
They will be on Fridays at 2pm UK (9am EST). They're all recorded, so you don't miss out if you can't make them live.
This way everyone gets a chance to join in, wherever you are in the world.
These sessions happen in a fabulous off-grid yurt. So they won't be live streamed.
The audio for each teaching session will be recorded, but it's simply not the same as joining us live.
If you're hungry to create the breakthroughs this bootcamp is offering you, there will most likely be a way to clear out your diary.
There's no expiry date on the training materials, livestreams and Q&As. They will be there for you in my online Training Vault for as long as it exists (I'm not planning on it going anywhere!)
The forum will also be there for you to get answers to your questions and to celebrate your successes.
The Facebook group will remain open for 3 months after the end of the bootcamp, at which point it will be archived. That means you'll still be able to see all of the posts, but won't be able to add new ones.
This is to help us keep our focus on this bootcamp, rather than allowing it to drift into being 'yet another Facebook group'. And it also helps to give you accountability for taking action on ditching Imposter Syndrome and your leadership dreams.
No. But we can help you to find local accommodation.
The two days of the retreat include break-out refreshments (including cake) and a vegetarian, gluten-free lunch each day.
Please let us know as early as possible if you have special dietary requirements.
Yes. If your application is successful, we can arrange to invoice your employer to cover payment.
For entrepreneurs, this programme is considered a tax-deductible business expense in the UK.
Please note that all invoices must be paid in full before the start of the programme.
Automated payment plans via secure credit card payments run for three months and you must make each payment on time.
