About Clare

Clare Chapman

Clare Chapman is a passionate International Correspondence Course Tutor, Teacher Trainer & Coordinator and Intro Course Teacher for Australian Bush Flower Essences® (with over 7 years teaching experience & personal mentoring from ABFE Founder, Ian White). She is also an experienced Bush Essence Practitioner, AAMET Level 2 EFT Practitioner, Energy Intuitive & Social Media Strategist. Clare holds a BA English and is a full member of the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT).

Clare has a keen interest in helping others to empower themselves – the true definition of empower – as in actually helping you to find your own inner strength so you will eventually learn how to rely entirely on yourself for guidance. Clare uses the Bush Essences, EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), Chinese Astrology, and her own 15-years personal experience navigating the mountains of self-help books, workshops, programs and teachers out there.

After having studied all available Australian Bush Flower Essences® Workshops, books, the Official Correspondence Course and all other available resources extensively over a 4-year period (attending some in-house Workshops with ABFE Founder, Ian White, multiple times!), Clare was asked by Australian Bush Flower Essences® to become an International Certified Teacher in 2008 – which was a wonderful opportunity for her to actively teach this information she had immersed herself in, since it had improved her life so greatly. Clare knew that if she had been searching for natural and energetic remedies like this, that other people just like her were searching too – especially in regional (country) areas of Australia such as Northern NSW, which is where Clare resides.

Sharing the Knowledge

Training under the personal guidance of ABFE Founder, Ian White, Clare has been confidently presenting workshops in Northern NSW for over 7 years, as well as presenting hosted custom workshops on demand for several Aged-Care organisations. Clare has also been invited to be a keynote speaker at Aged-Care Conferences (Sydney, NSW & Gold Coast, QLD), as well as having donated her time as keynote speaker for community organisations such as U3A.

At the same time she was asked to become a teacher in 2008, Clare also made the decision to create her dream business, Baliena* Flower Therapies, which would encompass her teaching with Australian Bush Flower Essences®, as well as enable her to branch out into other areas of well-being: by helping people to heal through an understanding of their own emotions. Or as she likes to put it, helping you to ‘Find YOUR Version of Happy’!

In 2010, Baliena Flower Therapies was recognised as an Approved Training Provider by the International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT). This means that all attendees of Clare’s workshops are able to seek professional membership and insurances through IICT and start their own clinical work straight away – a huge advantage since many new practitioners don’t know where to start.

Clare is continually planning exciting new initiatives for Baliena Flower Therapies – subscribe to her newsletter to be first to hear about what’s new as it happens!

Energising Speaker

Clare is an experienced, informative and entertaining keynote and conference speaker on the Australian Bush Flower Essences and how they can be used in the home, business world and within professional organisations to achieve more productive staff.

Engaging Clare as a speaker is a wonderful opportunity to introduce your audience to new ways of thinking about themselves and their world. Clare would love to speak at your next event (just get in touch via the contact form below).

The Flower-preneur

At the same time Clare was starting up Baliena Flower Therapies, she was still working in her present job in Retail Information Technology (I.T.) – certainly a very different field from the energetic-health arena!

She decided that it would be a ‘crime’ to waste her 11 years of extensive experience and know-how managing a complex small retail business, liaising with and learning from with some of the biggest business minds in Australia, creating marketing campaigns and initiatives, building websites and being right at the forefront during the launch of social media.

So, she has created a solo-preneur small business mentoring service (The Flower-preneur!) that will guide you as much or as little as you want in your own small business: maybe you just want to discuss some ideas and gain some input; perhaps you need an entire small business marketing campaign set up; or maybe you just want some tutoring on how to start using social media in your business. Want to discuss your needs and see what she can offer your business? Just fill in the contact form below.

* Baliena is the word for ‘whale’ in the Maltese language: this is significant to Clare, since the humpback whale is a key totem for her, and calling it by its Maltese name is in commemoration to her maternal lineage: her mother and grandmother, who respectively are, and were, strong women and influences in her life.
