Maybe you want to use your reentry as an opportunity to reinvent yourself professionally, but don’t know where to start…

Maybe you’re sick of feeling like you don’t fit in anywhere and you don’t know what direction to head in…

Claire Fogarty portrait
Nice to meet you!

My name is Claire Fogarty, a certified professional coach and ICF member.

I have always been driven by an insatiable intellectual curiosity and a taste for human adventure. Through my international career, I have been able to discover and understand the multiple facets of the upheavals that can be experienced when moving abroad.

client love

I launched my podcast! I was able to see my launch project through to the end thanks to this coaching. I am much more confident in my business. I always try to analyze my reactions to the new challenges I face.
I liked Claire’s approach, always benevolent and open. Even if my project was not her field, she knew how to accompany me in the best way. Claire is welcoming and always has a smile!
If I could change anything? I wish I had done this coaching a few years ago haha! More seriously, no, everything was well balanced: the frequency, the duration, etc.

To those who want to start, I want to tell them that they will be a little shaken up in a good way! Claire manages in her own way to make us think, mature, grow… all at the same time.

Thank you!!! You have been very helpful and supportive. Thank you for your patience!

What I appreciated the most in the accompaniment with Claire is her sincerity, her way of summarizing my comments without appropriating them, her approach to my problems without judgment and by bringing ways of thinking. Thanks to the sessions with Claire, I have more self-confidence which allows me to assert myself and make my opinions heard.
Claire is very open-minded and her international experience means that she knows how it feels. I would recommend Claire’s services to expats returning to their home countries, and to anyone with an international career.
A big thank you Claire, really.

Claire helped me to become more confident, more mindful, and more self-aware. By doing the exercises and introspective questioning, I’ve begun to understand myself more which helped me to accept and like myself more!
With this coaching, I was hoping to get more confidence and I did! 10000%. Claire helped me to realize some things about myself that I would never have known without her careful and thoughtful questions. I learned how to set more manageable goals, learned why I think the way I do, based on my values, how to deal with family problems, and how to take care of myself and like myself more.
I didn’t think I’d like myself more willingly. Instead of being angry at myself for why I acted or thought certain ways, through sessions with Claire I learned that I have unique values that really shape who I am at this time in my life and that helped me to feel more empowered rather than frustrated. I also set some smaller goals that before I had tried and failed at but actually succeeded this time!

What does the coach do by the way?

The coach asks probing questions to bring out your unique abilities, helps you create a vision and plan for the future, and accompanies you through the implementation of career changes and life transitions.

The coach holds you accountable for what you say you will do, pushes you to do more than you would do on your own, and helps you overcome limiting beliefs that prevent you from reaching your goal.

What's the difference between therapy & coaching ?

First of all, in therapy, we talk about the patient, while in coaching we talk about the client.

The therapist focuses on the link between the past and the present in an attempt to answer the question why.

The coach focuses on the link between the present and the near future of the client and tries to answer the how question. To do this, the coach will co-construct an action plan with the client and put in place strategies that will allow the client to reach his or her clearly defined goal.

Is the certification important?

Yes, it is! Make sure your coach is certified. Today, many people who call themselves coaches have no formal training. A professional coaching certification in France takes an average of 8-10 months, requires a written dissertation, and follows a technical and practical training to adopt a neutral and caring coaching posture.

Many have added the word "coach" to their title in the hopes of jumping on the bandwagon, without respecting or even knowing the ethical code of our profession. Make sure that your potential coach has completed a state-recognized coaching course and is accredited by the ICF, EMCC or SFAPEC.

What are the payment methods ?

I currently accept payments by bank transfer in Euros or in local currency via Paypal.
