She completed the 10-month program with Diane May in 1995 with Ventures and Harmony. Claire became a Recognized Practitioner with the TTNO in 1996 and a Recognized Teacher in 1998. Therapeutic Touch became her passion to help comfort her clients as a community nurse, whether it be palliative, in nursing homes, hospital settings or pre and post surgery.
