Hi there! Thank you for stopping by to check out The Gift of Writing. My name is Claire De Boer and I am a writer, teacher and therapist.
My goal is to use writing as a tool to help people grow, heal and find direction, so they may live a purposeful life that reflects their authentic selves and their dreams. I’m also passionate about coaching people through the process of writing and sharing their personal stories—one of the best ways we relate to one another and build deep connection.
A Community of Writers
In this space you will find a community of people writing their stories and/or journaling their way towards a wholehearted life. Join the Be Free community free of charge and you’ll gain accessto threeBooks, the Soul Writing 101 course, the first three videos in my paid course Write Your Way Whole, and the introduction video in my paid course Write Your Story…all for free.
I also offer two online courses: Write Your Way Whole (journaling for personal growth) and Write Your Story (creating your memoir.) These courses integrate a private forum where writers can come together and share their experiences and writing—so important in a field where we often must work alone.
I work with beginner and intermediate writers on an individual basis, accompanying them on the journey of working towards their writing goals. If you are struggling with a specific writing project and feel private mentoring would work well for you, please contact me for pricing and availability.
who I am.
I am a writer, teacher and therapist with a passion for stories and a strong belief in their power to connect and heal us.
what I stand for.
I stand for a world in which we show up as our true selves and don’t hide behind our fears. For lives lived from the inside out. For joy to override depression through authentic connection and acceptance of others as they are.
I hope for curiosity for all. That we may begin to remember who we are and what makes us fully alive.
I stand for equality between men and women, religions and race. That everyone may have a voice and be connected to someone who will truly hear them.
My vision is to reach out to those people whose story or belief about who they are is preventing them from living an abundant life. Through the process of expressive writing and individual and group therapy, it is my goal to bring about healing, change and connection to self.
