YOU-Q: Finding Your Inner Winner

YOU-Q is a concept that I have developed out of my experiences as a practicing psychologist, as well as my travels around the world. YOU-Q is about living life to its full potential and finding your Inner Winner.

While it encapsulates emotional, spiritual and intellectual intelligence, YOU-Q is also so much more. It is about Getting Real – the importance of knowing and staying true to your value, purpose and vision. It’s about Changing Your Head Talk – how to silence the unhelpful messages we give ourselves and change our negative self-beliefs. And it’s about learning how to Relate well to others.


Who Should Attend

Everyone has an Inner Winner - you just need to lose your Inner Loser to find it! This talk will appeal to anyone wanting to live a be-YOU-tiful life right now! If you need motivation, inspiration or direction, this talk is exactly what you’ve been waiting for.

"Your YOU-Q talk was just too phenomenal! Very inspiring and enlightening! Attending your talk was the best decision I've made for myself to date this year. I can honestly say my values were shaky and far from being strong, so any influence led me to any direction in which I would find myself at total discomfort and no way near the happiness that we all so tirelessly pursue. But I've now developed a set of strong core values from the Values Poster of yours and they have helped me to be a strong character and know what I stand for!
Claire, I can safely say I have found my Inner Winner! Those 3 questions you posed to us has lead me even closer to realising my true purpose and meaning in this life.
Keep on being a blessing to others. You are seriously proving to be instrumental in my life!"
