Claire discovered storytelling through her work as a speech and language therapist where she began adapting stories for groups of children with special needs. Using the magic of shared and inclusive storytelling, Claire has brought stories to many of her therapy groups, from preschoolers with delayed language to supporting teenagers with social and emotional difficulties.

More recently, Claire discovered the joy of telling traditional stories to adult audiences and opened the treasure trove of folktales, wondertales and myths from around the world. Whenever the opportunity arises, she tells stories in local storytelling circles and at private events. She currently provides admin support to A Bit Crack whilst also developing her skills as a future storyteller.
