Who We Are
Our vision is to empower organisations with workplace wellness solutions to enable success and happiness on all levels.
Who we are:
Raw Horizons was co-founded by Dr Claire Maguire and Andrea Maguire. With the head office in North Yorkshire, they lead a dedicated team whose aim is to deliver wellness and wellbeing programmes and consultancy.
By raising awareness and support around mental health and wellbeing for companies and individuals, then a positive, happier and productive work culture can be created and maintained.
Established in 2009 by Dr Claire Maguire and Andrea Maguire, a step-daughter and step-mother team, Raw Horizons provided exclusive courses specialising in wellbeing coaching.
The inspiration to create Raw Horizons came after Claire was diagnosed, at the age of 37, with breast cancer. Although Claire was already practising as a wellbeing life coach, this traumatic event shattered her self-belief and core values, making her realise the importance of accepting who we are and looking after ourselves.
As the family had recently restored their home, Split Farthing Hall, they had the perfect venue to establish their Wellbeing Retreat Centre and Wellbeing Coaching Academy. Due to their success, other venues are now included for expanding these services.
We have since developed our offering to incorporate our vast knowledge of wellness and wellbeing into products and services for the corporate domain.
Dr Claire Maguire
Claire's career began in scientific research in top UK universities but her passion for personal development led her to become a highly renowned Wellbeing Coach and founder of Raw Horizons.
Her diverse background including science, business and wellness, together with her analytical mind, gives her a unique ability for lateral thinking, blue sky strategising and lasering directly into the inherent issues.
Originally from the offshore oil & gas industry, Andrea then moved into business consultancy. She has many years of working in private enterprise, from starting her own IT business to consulting for luxury brands.
With her diverse skill set plus an eye for problem solving she builds long-term strategic relationships with clients and partners to offer them innovative solutions and outstanding customer service.
Of course Claire and Andrea couldn\'t have done all of this alone so read on to meet the rest of our dedicated team…
