His speaking has been described as ‘eye-opening,’ ‘powerful’ and, most importantly, accessible to people in business contexts, or in their personal lives.

“How did you make us cry and laugh and love and feel so much in those minutes? Genius.”

“Oh my word Clive, your talk was very moving, and full of love and perception, and simply awe-inspiring.”

Everyone needs a coach. How else do you stay ahead, healthy and focused? Clive Vanderwagen has coached clients privately and in businesses and allows each person to explore what change they want to bring about in their lives.

He focuses on mindset and stepping into your power, and encouraging you to grow as a person emotionally and in relationship with others. 

He’s not a life coach. He’s a partner who gets alongside you to get you fit for life – to take each day as it comes from a place of security, positivity and hope.

The coaching experience was profound, and life-changing. Clive has a rare gift to interpret people and situations with uncanny accuracy. 

He delivers his insights delicately and always made me feel positive about the upheaval taking place in my mind. 

He gave me guidance and a set of tools to deal with certain issues and he set me on a path to self-improvement.
