Hi, I’m Claire!

I’m an Australian women’s coach living in London, and I teach women how to find their flow by living in sync with their menstrual cycle. Hating on your period is so 1993, and I believe that working with our natural rhythm (rather than working against it) is the key to feeling more balanced, creative, turned on, and tuned in. 

My adult life can be split into two parts: life ON the pill and life OFF the pill. For the decade that I took hormonal contraception, I was at war with my body; calorie counting, over-exercising, drug and alcohol bingeing, and crippling toxic self-talk consumed me.

Discovering how it felt to have a natural menstrual cycle (“WTF is ovulation?!”) blew my mind — life was soon coloured with greater ease, deeper reserves of health and creativity, more joy, and a whole new world of womanhood to explore.

It wasn’t all unicorns and rainbows though: In 2013 I was diagnosed with post-pill amenorrhea, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and experienced painful periods and PMS for the first time in my life. These hormonal issues forced me to dive deep into this work to heal and understand my body.

My years of personal research and professional education in menstruality with leading experts in this field, working globally as a sought-after women’s coach, speaking on stage to the women of London, and facilitating sold-out Adore Your Cycle workshops and retreats online, in Australia, the UK and across Europe, have culminated in helping hundreds of women understand how to flow with their natural rhythm, rather than working against it. 

Essentially, I just hope to tell the truth about what it’s like to live in a woman’s body—hello, hormones!—from leaks to libido, and menstrual cups to the moon. And if you see a little of yourself in my stories? Then my work here is done.
