30-day 100% Money Back Guarantee

I want you to be happy. And I know it can feel risky, buying a programme online. So you can try it on for size for a full 30 days after the start of the programme - at my risk.

If, having done the exercises, you find that Taming Your Inner Critic hasn't helped you to retrain your self-talk to be more encouraging, or to boost your confidence, then you can have a full refund - no sulks or strops or awkward feelings.

BUT this is not a 'brown banana' guarantee: you wouldn't take a banana back to the shop because you changed your mind or forgot to eat it and it went brown. Similarly, I will ask you to have actually tried out the techniques and strategies taught in this course, to give them a chance to work for you, in order to be eligible for a refund.

I hope you agree that's fair. x Clare


Is there a payment plan?

Yes, for Stepping Up To Lead, if you're self-funding this course. If your company is paying, they will need to pay in advance, in a single payment (you don't want to know how much time we spend chasing corporate invoices, so we cannot do instalments for companies - sorry).

For Taming Your Inner Critic, it's a single payment, which gets you lifetime access.

Can my employer pay for this?

Absolutely! I applaud employers who commit to investing in people's development - it's a win-win.

The easiest way is for you to ask your manager to authorise this as an expense for you to reclaim. That way you can sign up right away, via the checkout.

Alternatively, it can be invoiced direct to your company, but please bear in mind that it can take many months for companies to pay invoices and you wouldn't be able to start this course until that has been paid.

Also, if your employer has a complex, time-consuming process for us to register as an approved supplier, we would need to reserve the right to charge a fee to cover the administration time this can incur.

Will this course help me to get a promotion or pay rise?

Obviously I don't know your personal circumstances, but if what is holding you back from the promotion or pay rise you deserve is needing to increase your self-belief, your confidence, clear Imposter Syndrome, and take your visibility up a few notches so you'll be top-of-mind, then the answer is yes.

When I ran the 2019 Imposter Syndrome Research Study, I found that Imposter Syndrome was one of three hidden causes of the gender pay gap and lack of gender parity in leadership roles. This also applies to BAME equality and other groups who feel they are in a minority in their company.

The research study showed that clearing Imposter Syndrome helped women, in particular, to advance in their career.

Also, the more you believe in yourself, the more likely you are to succeed in asking for a pay rise!

Taming Your Inner Critic lays firm foundations for the rest of the Ditching Imposter Syndrome work that you could then do in Stepping Up To Lead, if you decide to continue with the programme.

Do I have to do the course in 2 weeks?

Not at all! Taming Your Inner Critic is designed to help you create breakthroughs in the first two weeks.

But if you need to work through it more slowly, that's fine.

You get 'no-rush lifetime access', which means the course is there for you for as long as my training vault exists. And we're not planning on that going anywhere anytime soon.

The key, though, is to keep working through the course. If you're finding yourself putting it on your 'tomorrow to-do list' then it's worth having a chat with yourself to understand why you're procrastinating.

It often means there's a subconscious fear around letting go of self-doubt and Imposter Syndrome.

What about privacy?

I get it. You might not want Uncle Tom Cobley & All knowing you're doing this course. So here are some of the ways I help you to get the most from the course, whilst protecting your privacy.

  • When you first register, you get a direct link to choose how your name is displayed in the forum, so this is the perfect time to make it something that allows me to know who you are, but doesn't give away your full name
  • ONLY members of the Stepping Up To Lead and Taming Your Inner Critic programmes can see the forum discussions
  • Many students choose to register with their personal email address for the training vault and emails, especially if they have a PA or team member who checks their inbox when they're away

Will I automatically be signed up for Stepping Up To Lead?
