Claire Bolton

Claire Bolton van Weert is an Australian-trained generalist Speech and Language Therapist with clinics in London’s Harley Street and Chesham (Buckinghamshire).  Prior to moving back to the UK in 2007 to work in the NHS, Claire worked in rural Australia, treating ‘womb to tomb’.  She is also a qualified Life Coach from The Life Coaching Academy (based in Australia and accredited by the International Coach Federation).  Claire uses her life coaching skills alongside speech and language therapy skills to support her clients.    

Claire founded Apex Ability Limited – a growing and high-quality practice that prides itself on helping people reach their potential.  In 2017 Claire was the winner of the Best Business Women Awards in Health & Wellness and Finalist in Customer Service.  She is increasingly approached by successful professionals seeking Life and Business Coaching.

Claire was the UK’s first SLT to receive a Churchill Fellowship (2012) to visit Canada/USA to learn how music can be used within speech and language therapy.  She now works collaboratively with Neurologic Music Therapists and runs joint workshops around the UK.  In addition, Claire is a sought-after speaker for her vocal health lectures/workshops for professional voice users who want to protect their voices and prevent career-threatening voice difficulties.

In response the Covid-19 lockdowns and limited access to Speech and Language Therapists, The Churchill Fellowship is supporting Claire in providing free online education sessions on strategies for supporting speech and language development.
