Testimonial from Darshan Parekh about Claire Bibby: I had the pleasure of working with Claire this year and I cannot recommend her coaching services enough. Claire takes the time to know her client and work on themselves to draw out strengths and hard truths. She encourages you to really think outside of the box and holds you accountable for your actions. Working with Claire has given me a balcony view of my life, to which I’ve made observations and I’ve then been brought back to the floor to work on my goals. All the while, Claire has coached with no judgement. I would recommend Claire to anyone who wants a coach to help them make a palpable change in their life.”
