Carer Wellbeing and Mindset

Holding the space for family carers to thrive

“If you truly want to change your life, you must first change your mind”


Hey, I’m Claire Cook, founder of Holding the Space, parent carer to our daughter who has complex needs, NLP practitioner, and passionate advocate for carer wellbeing.  I’ve been on my own long journey, and now bring together the tools that have helped me, to support other unpaid carers.  After being in a fog for many years, I’ll leave you with the quote that sparked the turning point in my life.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with

your one wild and precious life?”

Mary Oliver

Mindset Courses

Have a reboot on one of my popular Mindset Reset courses. As taken by RBS, CarersFirst and many individual carers.

Free Support

Lots of free resources, including my Youtube channel, free e-resources and my forthcoming podcast and planner.

Join our Community

A supportive Facebook group, where the focus is on us. Many groups focus on our cared-for, but this is a space for us.

“I wasn’t sure about taking part but so glad I did. Claire has an engaging understanding style. I have been doing the exercises and they help. Especially in lockdown ! Claire is nonjudgmental and has a calm aura which makes it easier to open up.”

About Me

Hi there. I’m Claire Cook, parent carer to my daughter who has complex needs. After a low period, with depression and anxiety, I found my way back using NLP mindset tools (Neuro linguistic programming). I went on to qualify in NLP, and now create courses and free resources to support other family carers. We all deserve to live our best life.
