The Short Version: UK-based coach, author, and women’s advocate Claire Cappetta is fighting a battle for women worldwide to know what it means to be in a healthy, loving relationship. After years of experiencing abuse from her intimate partner, Claire found the courage and strength to create a new life based on love and self-acceptance. Today, she teaches other women how to be courageous warriors by learning how to love who they are and use supportive methods to release the past. After successfully embarking on her own journey to healing, Claire has made it her mission to help women gain the confidence they need to stand strong in the world.
Claire Cappetta reached a point in her life where she had to step back and take inventory. A series of failed relationships had led her to where she was, and, weary, she knew she had to make significant changes in her life to turn things around.
“I was bouncing from one bad relationship to another,” she said. “I thought there must be something wrong with me because I was picking and choosing such bad relationships.”
Claire knew no one should have to live with the abuse and violence that plagued her previous bonds, so she began to unpeel the layers of disappointment, fear, and sadness that had been keeping her from true love.
This led Claire to the realization that she was blocking her true self and accepting much less than she deserved. Her decision to survive brought her out of the darkness and into a newfound freedom once she accepted what she calls her inner sparkle.
“The inner sparkle is a renewed, re-energized, and inspired passion that helps you discover and connect with the authentic, genuine you,” she said.
Claire understands why many women believe the fault lies with them if their relationships don’t look like treasured romances, and she’s made it her goal to help them heal from past pain and emerge stronger. Her here-and-now coaching approach has encouraged women around the world to rediscover life by knowing what it means to truly sparkle.
“There is life at the end of the tunnel,” she said.
Tapping into that inner glow and revealing the diamond in the rough is what makes Claire’s coaching methods so effective. Not only is she working with clients individually, but she’s also been a keynote speaker for domestic violence events, including Barrier Free Living, Moving Beyond Shame, and Shattering the Silence.
Claire makes herself easily accessible to clients by offering coaching sessions in person, by phone, or through an online video chat. All of the women she connects with are resilient and have survived some of the darkest moments in life.
“People don’t want to talk about domestic violence, stalking, or mental and emotional abuse,” she said. “It’s important for women to know they can rebuild their lives and begin to remove past barriers from abuse.”
Having a coach who has walked in your shoes is a game-changer for Claire’s clients. She’s helping many women discover for the first time how a healthy, loving relationship looks and feels.
“How do you know what’s healthy and what isn’t?” she asked.
Claire told us the coaching process begins by meeting clients where they are in their current relationship, state of mind, and emotional awakenings.
“You need to find out where people are coming from,” she said. “Connecting with where a person is and what type of relationship they’re walking away from.”
Creating a genuine connection is at the top of Claire’s priority list when it comes to meeting new clients. You can experience a free, 30-minute consultation with her to know if she’s the best coach to help you experience love from the inside out.
“Feeling understood and validated are the most important needs for any woman coming out of an abusive relationship,” she said.
Start imagining the new life that’s waiting for you by taking this first step today. If you’re ready to heal and connect to your authentic self, Claire offers a one-hour package of four sessions and a single one-hour session to be used in person or online.
“The healing process looks and feels different for every woman,” she said. “You can find your inner sparkle again and live a life worth living, one where you don’t have to second-guess every move or decision you make.”
Claire said connecting women with meditation tools has proven to be a success in strengthening their inner core and foundation as a human being. Her website offers a two-minute meditation for stress and anxiety. Just a few minutes a day can help clear the mental clutter to keep your life moving forward.
“It’s important to remember that there’s a whole person behind every broken story,” she said. “Take a mental break for five minutes. Just listen to the meditation and be present.”
Creating a moment to be still connects with Claire’s style of coaching. This is helpful for women who haven’t experienced the freedom of making their own decisions. Meditation can be one of the first steps in creating healthy boundaries, which is a key element in her talks with clients.
“Everything is a boundary,” she said. “I help women learn how to maintain healthy boundaries in all relationships; to know what feels healthy, happy, and comfortable.”
Claire encourages her clients to listen to daily meditations because it also helps break the bond to past traumas, mental fatigue, and emotional pitfalls. Techniques that teach mindfulness, like Claire’s, are getting noticed by the academic and scientific community as being effective avenues to psychological healing.
“Mindfulness teaches you to recognize ‘Oh, there’s that thought again. I’ve been here before. But it’s just that — a thought — and not a part of my core self,’” Dr. Elizabeth Hoge, Psychiatrist at the Center for Anxiety and Traumatic Stress Disorders, was quoted as saying in a recent article.
Claire agrees that this unique combination of coaching and meditation is a life-changer for the women she connects to worldwide.
For a more intimate experience in self-love and healing, Claire inspires women to seek out resources and advice that focus on being in the moment.
“Read books that help you stay present,” she said. “You must gain appreciation for what is here now.”
Being grateful for what life has to offer is one of the turning points for many women, including Claire. She discovered her own voice as she learned how to appreciate the present and experience life one breath at a time.
Claire is a self-published author who has used her own life experiences to create relevant reading topics for women. Her book, “Rekindle Your Inner Sparkle, An Alternative Way to Heal from Trauma and Abuse,” offers simple answers to the deepest questions on daily anxiety and depression. She said her book is based on love, positivity, and the joy of discovering that inner sparkle that so many women lose.
“We find it difficult to see the light, but we can find it,” she shared. “There are days when we can hardly pull ourselves out of bed, let alone put some music on or go for a walk, but it really is these simple things that rescue us.”
Those who subscribe to Claire’s website can download a PDF copy of “Rekindle Your Inner Sparkle” for free.
Her Ride to Liberty Series is based on a true story and tells the tale of a fictional woman named Lydia who empowers herself to escape manipulative and unhealthy relationships. “A Broken Ring: A Woman’s Journey from Abuse to Empowerment” and “Stalking Liberty: Are You Safe?” are both available to purchase in paperback and on Kindle through Amazon. Check out Claire’s blog for more helpful tips on stalking awareness, anxiety, healing, trauma, mindfulness, and love.
Claire’s passion for healing lives is breaking new ground and inspiring more women to live authentic, healthy lives. Piecing together the shattered parts of life with love, acceptance, and forgiveness are the building blocks for each new day.
“I tell women that they may never receive an apology,” she said. “That is something you can’t control, but you can discern what control you give to people and what you allow.”
This coach is ready to connect with you and help you live a life without limits. Tearing down those walls of pain, regret and mistreatment is just part of the journey, she said. You can still experience love from the outside world in a way that is healthy, supportive and meaningful. Claire’s life experiences make her value every client’s unique voice and self-discovery.
“Learn how to unscramble the life path you’ve drawn on the piece of paper,” she said. “Don’t think so much about the future long-term because the path is going to change.”
