A LUDGERSHALL-based radio station brought a twist to its alternative 80s show.

Castledown FM welcomed dating and relationship coach Claire Dore to the Chris Jackson Alternative 80s weekly slot. Claire joined Chris show earlier this week.

Chris said: "Claire has featured heavily in the national press lately and many magazines, her outlook to help others in happy or unhappy relationships is really positive and upbeat and with podcasts out and with a new book on the way I was very lucky to have her appear on my show as she’s really busy with her journey and certainly moving in the right direction.

"She has now grown interest in the local area too, of course, so it made sense to learn more about her service and I discovered so much more about how many people in relationships are conditioned in their early life that often causes problems in relationships."

Claire became a relationship coach and gained a following after a divorce and is known for her service in successfully empowering couples struggling in their relationships to look differently at their situations.
