Welcome to The Energy Cog

School of Thriving

​Never has there been a more important time to advocate health responsibility. This means taking ownership over one’s own physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Here at The Energy Cog we offer carefully constructed courses and talks that specialise in giving support, education, and resources in all areas of self-healing and energy psychology. We also provide applicable therapies.


Our intention is to teach as many people as possible how to thrive; to thrive is to heal. We draw on the extensive and constantly evolving science behind mind-body medicine which forms the foundation of our teachings.


About the Founders

Claire is a professional artist (Minter-Kemp) and has been for over thirty years.  Running hand in hand with her love for art is her passion for healing. She is an Energy Healer, Reiki teacher and practitioner, Mindfulness teacher, and Energy Psychologist. However, she believes that her best qualification is her own healing experience.


From an early age she developed a deep interest in healing which was further fuelled by a chronic illness that manifested in her twenties. As conventional medicine could not provide the answers, she set out on a mission to cure herself. Her determination not to broadcast her illness, for fear of being marginalized, meant this was not an easy path. It was often lonely and full of trial and error. But, in its favour, this has meant a life dedicated to learning about a subject she deeply loves!


Ten years after its diagnosis Claire left her illness behind. 


Once she understood her own healing, her task was to translate this into a simple language for others to understand. So, for the next fifteen years, she studied the science behind healing - investigating as many modalities as she could.


Using a combination of creative and healing tools, she now helps others to find their path to thriving in an easy and enjoyable way.

Hebe is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Therapist. She teaches yoga and mindfulness, and

has received qualifications from Insight Yoga Institution, Zenways, Mindfulness Association and Mindfulness Now. She has also

completed counselling and psychotherapy training with

The Karuna Institute and The Sweet Track Centre.


Having originally trained and worked as an actor, she already had an

interest in the human psyche. It was after suffering a series of career

blocks and subsequent burnout that she was prompted to investigate

and prioritise her own health. Along the way she has turned her attention

to therapy and coaching. This has given her a deep understanding of the mind-body energy systems and how they work together. With these learnings she’s created an effective package of practical tools that she

now offers to others - empowering them to identify and transform programmes and behaviours that hold them back.
