About us

Hello, I'm Claire Paphitis - Ayurvedic Practitioner, Reiki Master, Author and Sound Healer. I am the founder and owner of The Ayurveda Coach and run an Ayurvedic clinic and Reiki healing practice from my two homes on Harley Street London and Alma Road in Reigate Surrey. I also see patients from further afield online. 

"I found Claire via social media and loved the way she talked about Ayurveda and how to bring it into my life - slowly and gently but effectively. As a result, I bought the Women's Wellness Package which consisted of 3 Ayurveda consultations, 3 Reiki treatments, a personalised plan and recommended herb mixes. I think it was very good value for the 1:1 time with Claire.

Claire's warm, sensitive and caring nature meant she immediately put me at ease. Having tried many different ways to sort out digestive and food allergy problems, I could not believe how much better I felt at the end of the first month. In months 2 and 3 Claire kept a track of my symptoms and resolved new ones with a different combination of herbs.

Claire is a real expert in her field and very attentive to managing both the physical and emotional parts of the Ayurveda journey. I would recommend this package wholeheartedly, it is a unique combination that works really well."

Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing and wellbeing. During a Reiki session you receive Reiki or "life force energy” which flows through us and lives within all of us. Because we are all connected and as one this treatment can be given either in-person or remotely. The principle idea behind Reiki is that if a person's ‘life force energy’ or ‘Prana’ (Ayurveda) or Qi (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stressed, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki helps to address this delicate balance and can be performed either during in-person sessions or sent to you as a distance healing. I offer Reiki healing in London, Reigate and Remotely. Reiki is a wonderful tool for anyone who is stressed, anxious, grieving or needing help to overcome trauma or a difficult period in their life. I also offer 1:1 Reiki training for those that wish to learn this incredible practice for themselves. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use with no known contraindications and can be used alongside all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery and healing. Receiving Reiki can feel different to everyone. For some it can feel like a glowing radiance moving through you, others may feel a tightening and then releasing of emotions, others may feel very little is ‘happening’ at all. Simply trust in the process and know that Reiki is flowing and ‘working’ just as it should. Reiki treats the whole person;  mind, body and soul, creating many wonderful effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. 


Ayurvedic medicine is the world's oldest holistic healing system. It has been used for over 5000 years to cleanse and restore balance to the body and mind and to heal and prevent disease.

Rather than treating an isolated set of symptoms or masking them with medication. At the Ayurveda Coach, I treat the whole person - by considering all aspects of their life, environment, history, work, diet, lifestyle and quality of sleep.

Ayurveda is successful in treating a wide range of conditions including:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Insomnia
  • Digestive issues/IBS
  • Fatigue
  • Stress
  • Infertility
  • Menstrual problems
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Low libido
  • Anxiety
  • Joint & back pain
  • Skin conditions - Eczema/Psoriasis
  • Weight loss & Diabetes

“After years of various skin and digestive problems, I decided to try Ayurveda and have been amazed by the results. I found Claire very easy to talk to and her advice and knowledge has been invaluable in developing my awareness of what and how I eat to transformative effect! I feel so much more in tune with my body and my skin is the best it has been in decades. I am delighted with the results and cannot recommend Claire highly enough.”


“Clare was so fantastic during my first ever Ayurvedic consultation. I was struggling with a skin condition that had come on suddenly after a bout of stress and busy life. I felt totally at ease during our consultation and although the conversation takes lots of twists and turns I felt totally comfortable in the knowledge that I was dealing with a kind, understanding professional.

Since our consultation my skin has 100% cleared up! My stress levels have lowered, I have less brain fog and more energy. I absolutely cannot recommend enough!”


“Claire has a genuine wish for your overall wellness. Her calm and compassionate demeanour allows her to take the time to understand your life and offer means for you to make new changes with ease. Teaming knowledge on Ayurveda and broad knowledge on wellness she advises on modalities to bring you to a new state of calm and happiness. Breaking down complex teachings, Claire explains the matters where one would have never found diagnoses into easily understood ways that are simple, structures and importantly tailored for modern-day living. If you are looking to reclaim your life and find answers to the constant battles of why, how come, what is the meaning of, do make an appointment with Claire. She will guide you to a new way of looking at life and bring your health back into its natural state”

Further information


"I had never heard of Ayurveda until I visited a relative who had consulted Claire.
The first thing that struck me was a) how sparkly and confident my relative was and b)  how much weight she had lost. She told me about Ayurveda and gave me Claire's details. Following several years of intense stress due to divorce, family issues etc.
I had gained a lot of weight, was struggling to get to sleep at night,  waking up
many times during the night and consequently felt "drugged" and in a fog most days.

My body felt as though it was full of sludge and full of tummy bloating toxins.
My joints, especially my hip were giving me an increasing amount of severe pain which was becoming a real problem and beginning to affect my ability to do normal things such as go for walks and drive my car. I was needing to spend a penny so often that any journeys had to factor in loo stops - very embarrassing.

I had been consulting an osteopath for my joint and hip pains for several months, and whilst I usually felt a little better on the day, the debilitating pain always
returned within a few days. All in all I was feeling pretty miserable with myself
and not looking forward to life in my old age.

My initial consultation with Claire was a revelation. She is so professional and so easy to talk to. She explained how Ayurveda works and it immediately all made so much sense! My personalised diet plan was a bit of a shock - nearly all the food
that I had been eating, and that I had thought was pretty "healthy" was not allowed.
No wonder I had felt so rotten!

Ayurveda has enabled me to completely overhaul my diet and my relationship with food.  The herbs are an acquired taste to begin with,  but as you progress they become much more enjoyable and you do actually look forward to taking them - something I never though I would say - but it is true!

Two weeks into the regime and my hip and joint pain had all but disappeared,
which for me is amazing! I can enjoy long walks again on Dartmoor and hills no longer present problems for me. One month on and I have lost over one stone in weight, I am sleeping well, not waking in the night,  and wake up feeling full of energy.  It is not an exaggeration when I say that Ayurveda with Claire's ongoing support has quite literally transformed my life and I cannot thank Claire enough!"

Treen, 60 yrs old - Devon

"Working in a fast paced, stressful job with regular international travel, I met Claire to discuss how to improve my low energy and stress levels, poor sleep and general well-being. I was also feeling very low emotionally after some personal events, but I was able to completely open up to Claire, who was incredibly kind, understanding and professional.

I expected the pitta-pacifying diet to be much harder than it actually was, it just took a little preparation and I easily got into the routine, not even missing the foods I was initially upset about giving up! Claire also shared some delicious recipes with me, which was very helpful inspiration.

It took me approximately 4 weeks to feel the change, but I can assure you it is worth sticking to the plan. The herbs are not the tastiest at the beginning, but they improve quickly, and I now almost crave them as I love the benefits so much!

I feel completely in balance now. I handle the work stress with ease and feel generally calmer at all times. I’ve lost a little weight, which was an unplanned bonus and I generally feel lighter, happier and more energetic in the mornings. The sleepless nights have completely gone, and I can’t thank Claire enough for all the help and support she’s given me."

Stephanie, 34 yrs old - London

"Claire's knowledge and guidance is the perfect way to unlock the power of Ayurveda. I sought out Ayurveda to treat longstanding hormonal imbalances that particularly affect my skin with acne. After just 3 weeks I have begun to see a huge improvement in my skin and digestion. After suffering from acne for most of my teenage years (and trying various topical and contraceptive treatments) I can say that beginning to heal my body from the inside in a natural way feels like it will create genuine longterm improvement. Combining Ayurvedic herbs with small lifestyle adjustments feels life-changing in the way I approach self-care and my body."

Manon, 21 yrs old - London

"I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in January 2018. My conditions worsened rapidly over the months. My symptoms were quite typical such a bleeding, feeling bloated and tired. I was anxious about the fact that I was not able to control my body. Then I heard about Claire and Ayurverdic treatments and I thought that I had nothing to lose. She made herself available very quickly. She was very thorough in her questions and was cross referencing everything that I was telling her.
She advised me on food and new recipes and gave me a treatment to follow.
The improvement has been remarkable. No more bleeding, feeling bloated
or tiredness…Thank you Claire."

Dianne - Guildford

"I came to see the Ayurveda Coach about a month ago. I found Claire kind, understanding, approachable and I felt comfortable sharing my health concerns with her. I have experienced insomnia, irregular menstrual cycles and chronic digestive issues since early adulthood, and have visited countless practitioners of Western medicine with little to no effect. Claire prescribed three kinds of herbs and a fairly strict dosha-pacifying diet. Since following Claire's advice I've noticed my hormones balancing and I've been sleeping better—even sleeping through the night sometimes! The digestive issues are still a work in process but Claire has been responsive and encouraging with each development. I look forward to continuing
to work with her."

Emily, 30 yrs old - Brighton

"Claire, the Ayurveda Coach, has made a marvellous difference to my well-being. I consulted her to see if her approach to nutrition would improve my digestive issues following gall bladder surgery and to help me lose the weight I gained after menopause and a hysterectomy. I was very comfortable discussing my personal issues with her and was impressed by her professional manner and extensive knowledge. After following the dietary advice and herbs in my personalised plan,
I have not only lost a stone but have gained lots more energy and I have even
found the confidence to stop taking anti-depressant medication. I can’t thank
Claire enough and highly recommend others to see if she can work some magic
for them too!"

Sue, 64 yrs old - W. Sussex

"I came to see Claire to see if she could help with chronic knee pain I had been experiencing for some years. I was taking high doses of co-codamol on a daily basis and was starting to have difficulty climbing stairs. After a few weeks of following Claire's dietary advice and taking the herbal powders the pain has almost completely disappeared along with the swelling around my knees. I am back to being fully mobile again and have a better understanding of how to prevent the condition from coming back in the future. I have no hesitation in recommending her to friends and family - I feel very glad to have found her."

William, 67 yrs old - London
