If you hold back from expressing yourself, from speaking out, from taking risks, and feel you lack confidence because you’re quiet, reserved, shy or an introvert

Learn how  to say “goodbye” to inhibitions and self consciousness  and develop a natural self confidence –  through my London-based confidence and self expression courses.

Because it’s not just the out-going, go-getting socialites that get along in this world.

Natural Self-Confidence

My name is Claire Schrader and I am living proof that an introvert need not live on the sidelines. I started out in life as the proverbial wallflower – until I hit upon a way to break out of my shell  and  acquire some of the skills that extroverted people naturally have.

Watch this video and learn how I did it and how I can help you to do the same.

emergingBreak out of your shell the fast way

I have developed a fast and effective approach that will enable you to do the same and break through your barriers to expressing yourself powerfully in the world (no matter how inhibited or self conscious you are) – whilst at the same time having an enormous amount of fun.

My courses will help you to:

  • Build an unshakeable self confidence that comes from a deep place within
  • Have more fun and play more in life
  • Overcome shyness, reserve and/or the limiting aspects of being an introvert that is holding you back in your career
  • Overcome your fear of standing up in front of groups and/or of being tongue-tied in social situations
  • Overcome serious blocks to your self expression that is due to traumatic experiences or a tendency to bottle up your feelings.
  • Break through creative blocks and unlock your creative potential – no matter how uncreative you believe yourself to be.

HeadshotIlkleyDonnaSMI was a painfully shy child, had a traumatic childhood and young adulthood, and was not able to be comfortable being seen or heard. I was afraid of expressing myself and was uncomfortable speaking in public. Claire’s expertise worked for me to help dissolve what was a life-long handicap. I had spent twenty years in personal therapy for these trauma issues in my life, and Claire’s workshop was a more dramatic and beneficial change than talking therapy had been.” Donna Bach, Naturopath

From: Claire Schrader

claire135Hi there

Welcome to Making Moves particularly if you've been struggling with confidence. I've been there myself so I do understand.

To get a taste of what to expect the Express Yourself introductory evening  is next on 3rd May - one place has just come available.

Most people follow this up with the Breakthrough Group. I've seen some miraculous transformations in my 18 years of running this group. Or with the Finding Your Voice course if speaking to groups is your challenge, or "I don't know what to say" - improvisation for verbal confidence. We are finalising last places for the May courses which run for 12 weeks.

Best, Claire
