Dr. Claude Martinez

For over three decades Claude has been involved in the Mind, Body & Soul, health and wellbeing development and in the areas of research and teaching.

He has had the opportunity of working in various health and adult educational settings and with this experience it has taught him to be consistent, focused, flexible and self-reliant.

These values have allowed him to empower others in reaching their specific goals in their life, as his understanding of life is that it is a dynamic process of constant change, and has allowed him to see various opportunities in challenging situations.

At the very core of his being he has come to greatly appreciate the power of gratitude.

His strength is his inner power to remain focused and he has an unshakable faith, in that, no matter how a situation presents itself, he has the ability to find a way to move in the direction of long, medium- and short-term Goals.

His greatest passion and the one universal truth he has for himself, is his deep love and devotion for sharing his knowledge and teaching others, which brings great joy and fulfillment to see others empower themselves and then go on to empower others.

For this reason, he has created a personal development Institute and works with other organisations that have the same objectives. As an Educator/Life coach/ Bio-energetic practitioner seeing people begin to view life from a self-reliant perspective gives him a profound sense of gratitude to all his mentors, and in his view it is a Divine Gift.
