"I enjoyed your visit so much, the time passed so quickly. You are a very kind person, and very understanding." Vera Clarke

"Claire is passionate about drawing out a person's character by getting them to delve into their experiences. The result is a highly polished recording, which is, as it says on the tin, a portrait in sound. I found the recording revealed much more than I expected, and was surprisingly moving. A wonderful exercise." Isobel Grant

Some of the tales I work on are so upsetting. My client's step mother was left in a boarding school in China at four with her two year old brother, where they had numbers and not names. Then moved to an abusive family in Australia till war was over. Breaks your heart to hear of so much pain, carried into a broken adult life.
