CLARE DOWNHAM – UNIQUE JOURNEY

Appearing to be living the dream life and having a great career, Clare Downham progressed rapidly through the primary school leadership ranks to attain her first headship at the age of 39 and moved to her second headship just 4 years later. But the pressure of ‘doing too much’ eventually took its toll causing a period of severe depression and a year off work.
Clare’s story of her journey from a twenty-year career in Education, through a nervous breakdown and into an exciting new vocation as a Hypnotherapist and Wellbeing Teacher will give you an inspirational insight into how something amazing can be born out of a dark period of life especially if you trust that it will.
During her year of healing, Clare sought help from many sources including our amazing NHS and a number of complementary therapists. As well as this, she began seeking out ways to increase her wellbeing and happiness and now has a wealth of knowledge about tools you can use to support your own healing and generally help you feel better every day.
