CLAIRE

BENSON - MANDL

I help individuals and their employers make meaningful career and community transitions.

Meet Claire

My journey to coaching wasn’t linear, as is true for many worthwhile ventures. I certainly didn’t predict this career for myself while growing up, or even when I was in college. In fact, coaching wasn’t really a “thing” back then, outside of sports. But I can confirm, without hesitation, that this is what I am meant to be doing. Coaching allows me to share in other folks’ exhilarating moments of release from the confinement of expectation, and nothing beats that!

Hope & Wonder

Career Coaching

Through a fun, affordable, and accessible coaching process, I help clients clarify their work objectives, help clear out whatever has been blocking the way forward, and then support clients to enact plans to achieve their goals.

CBM Consultation

Disability & Vocational Rehabilitation Management

I support employees to recover from illness or injury, and then return successfully to work at their pre-disability job, or if that isn’t possible, a new position elsewhere. Successful returns to work are critical for employee health, but also the health of the organizations in which they work.

Relocation Support

I help new arrivals to the North Shore of Vancouver, BC, find homes - and feel at home - in communities that best fit their lifestyle and community preferences.

I initially came to coaching rather hesitantly as I was unsure whether or not it could help me. Before beginning this coaching experience, I was full of self-doubt, anxiety, and overwhelmed with the prospect of beginning a new chapter in my life. Within the first 2 sessions with Claire, I could feel excitement and confidence for the first time in years. The tools that I have gained through working with Claire are invaluable and I will use them for the rest of my life.

This has truly been a life-changing experience.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Claire! We were completely overwhelmed by the prospect of finding a rental property in Vancouver, especially because we wanted to secure a place before arriving... and then along came Claire!! Within three days we had signed a lease on a perfect rental in a dream location that checked off our entire wishlist.

 

We truly could not have done it without her.
