About Us

About Us

Our vision is to empower organisations with workplace wellness solutions to enable success and happiness on all levels.

Our mission:

By raising awareness and support around mental health and wellbeing for companies and individuals, then a positive, happier and productive work culture can be created and maintained.

Who we are:

Raw Horizons was co-founded by Dr Claire Maguire and Andrea Maguire. With the head office in North Yorkshire, they lead a dedicated team whose aim is to deliver wellness and wellbeing programmes and consultancy.

Our story:

Established in 2009 by Dr Claire Maguire and Andrea Maguire, a step-daughter and step-mother team, Raw Horizons provided exclusive courses specialising in wellbeing coaching.

The inspiration to create Raw Horizons came after Claire was diagnosed, at the age of 37, with breast cancer. Although Claire was already practising as a wellbeing life coach, this traumatic event shattered her self-belief and core values, making her realise the importance of accepting who we are and looking after ourselves.

As the family had recently restored their home, Split Farthing Hall, they had the perfect venue to establish their Wellbeing Retreat Centre and Wellbeing Coaching Academy. Due to their success, other venues are now included for expanding these services.

We have since developed our offering to incorporate our vast knowledge of wellness and wellbeing into products and services for the corporate domain.
