Senior Trainer, Mentor, and Coach

Involved with More To Life since 1990

Clare Vivian-Neal has been a Senior Trainer with More To Life since 2005. She has trained many of the courses in the MTL Programme in New Zealand and around the world. Clare has worked as a teacher, bio-technologist, and change manager in the public sector. Throughout her work, she has been drawn to bring out the best in herself and people around her. She studied Gestalt and Hakomi body-centred psychotherapy and other therapeutic methods. She has been actively practicing and teaching the More To Life course work since 1991. In 2018 Clare completed a Masters in Counselling (Solution-Focused) at Canterbury University, NZ. Working with trauma is one of her interests, especially following Bessel van der Kolk’s transformative body-based therapeutic practices. Another area of study for her final thesis is the connection between self-esteem, validation, and hope.
