My Story

Life, health & weightloss coaching.
My name is Clair MacKenzie and I founded The Best You.Coach after discovering that it is possible to work full time, raise two children, and run a house whilst taking care of myself. For years I had put the needs of my family (husband, 2 children & dog) and my work (from global blue chips to start-ups) before my own health and desire to be slim, believing that ‘I just didn’t have the time’, and ‘I didn’t have what it takes’ to sort myself out. I then discovered Life Coaching and Health Coaching.

What are you worth?

What are you worth?

When you invest in a life coach you are investing in yourself. That is, if you are investing in a life, health and weight coach, you’re investing in your physical and mental wellness.

What possible better investment could you make?

Of all the things you can do in your life, of all the things you can invest your money into doing, I think mental and physical health and wellness must be at the top of your list.

Here in the UK we are very poor at investing in our health. We spend far more money and time on our houses, cars and clothes than we do our mental well-being. We then think that our annual holiday is the answer to mental self-care even though often in reality our holidays do not live up to our expectations and our mental wellness degrades even more.

“investing in yourself is the best investment you will ever make. it will not only improve your life, it will improve the lives of all those around you.”

Robin Sharma

Our mental wellness determines so much of our life. It determines how we feel, how we think, what we do, what we create, what our results are, and how we perceive the world.

What would learning how to feel better be worth to you? What if you knew how to manage your mind, so that you could create the results that you want in your life, not just losing and maintaining your ideal weight, but better relationships, feeling valued at work, and having greater confidence. What would that be worth? What are you worth?

From personal experience, being overweight, feeling desperate to lose weight, and continually trying and failing, is a miserable situation to be in. I lived with so much shame and I don’t want anyone else to be stuck with shame like that. Now that I know it’s totally possible to be free of the pounds that you want to lose, as well as the weight of the associated negative emotion, I cannot encourage you enough to please decide you are worth investing in.

For those of you less familiar with life coaching, I am a causal life coach. This means that I don’t just help you change your action. I help you figure out why your taking the wrong action, or as if often the case, not taking any action.

I work from the thought-feeling. Therefore, I spend time working with you to help you understand, in the case of weight management, why you are over eating, because unless you know why you are overeating, unless you tackle the problem at the source, you are always going to revert back to over eating even if you manage to lose the weight initially.

And the great thing is, that once you work with me and learn this skill of learning how to understand why you are doing something or not doing something that you don’t or do want to be doing, it can be applied to any area of your life where you are not taking the required action to get you the result that you want.

So, whether you are looking for a life, health or weight coach, really think about whether you want to work on the cause of your problem, or do you want to have someone help you manage your symptoms?


If you’re hesitant at the thought of investing in yourself it’s likely that you don’t have the necessary belief. Either you believe you’re not capable of doing what’s required, or you believe it’s not worth the value, or you just believe it won’t work.

And what’s crazy about it is if you don’t believe and you don’t invest in yourself, you for sure won’t get the outcome that you could have gotten if you did believe, and it won’t of course have worked.

This is true for many things in life but the absolute brilliant thing about causal life coaching is that this is precisely the work that I do with my clients. Because we are causal coaches we work with you to overhaul your belief system so that you learn how to believe that you can maintain the weight that you want, or that you do believe you can get the promotion, and then everything starts to work for you…changing beliefs isn’t easy, it takes time and practice but with a causal life coach supporting you it is entirely possible.

Sometimes you will have breakthroughs, these are what I call instant switches where the brain mentally shifts, and your perspective is instantly changed and a block that may have held you back for years is gone for ever.

Having worked through the process myself, I know with 100% certainty that everyone can manage their weight if they are willing to work with me or a weight loss coach like me. They just need to commit to doing the work and never giving up. That’s it. That’s all they need to do. 

Now when I talk about doing the work, what do I mean? It may mean designing their food protocol, planning their meals in advance, and …when they want to eat something that they didn’t plan, learning how to allow that urge. It may be that the first time they allow it for one minute and then give in, but the next time they commit to allowing it for two minutes…and so on and so forth.

If they work with a Certified Weight Coach from ‘The Life Coach School’ (I am currently the only one in the UK offering weight coaching) they will be able to work with you in a very specific way to reduce your hunger and desire for food. Instructions that will enable you to take control of your brain and literally re-program it so that you can mange your weight for good.

Please, please make the decision that you are worth investing in. I absolutely promise you that you will be so glad you did.

If you would like to learn more about how you can work with me and have a free coaching session, please book a slot on my calendar here. They go quickly so make sure you grab one today.

I can’t wait to talk to you and explain how you can find the way to lose the weight for good.
