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.

My new book, From Wallflower to Sunflower which has just come out on Amazon.

The book tells my story and how I developed The Sunflower Effect, a fast and effective confidence building system, that has helped hundreds of people  put these disadvantages behind them and start expressing themselves with confidence.

Break out of your shell the fast way

This is a verified review from Hotcourses by a participant who has done a number of my courses, to give you an idea of what is possible.

Just Amazing! by Vanessa – November 2017
That overwhelming feeling of being fed up of being the quiet one and not being able to express myself and almost feeling like a fraud when I’m shy with people I don’t know well. Is why I began my journey with Claire. It now feels like I’m constantly stretching my confidence like you would do if you were overweight and needed to go to the gym. Week by week I started to see progress. Stretching out of my comfort zone losing excess worries and self doubt on the way like layers of clothes.

I’m so grateful for Claire and also the people that attend you really do realise that you’re not in this alone others are going through similar experiences and we will overcome it together. Thank you Claire you have literally changed my life.

Watch this video and discover how you can 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:

  • Move from Wallflower to where “the Sunflowers” (the confident people) live – and start building a totally New You. (See my new book From Wallflower to Sunflower)
  • 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 and social life
  • 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

I  had been suffering from social anxiety from a very young age. I had tried CBT, anger management therapy, hypnotherapy, past life regression therapy and went to see many psychologists but nothing really helped me. The change and progress I made through the Breakthrough Course was absolutely priceless.  This was the first ever programme that actually managed to bring about a change in me unlike every single other therapy programme that I had joined before.

I 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 whHeadshotIlkleyDonnaSMat 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.

claire135Hi there
Welcome to Making Moves particularly if you've been struggling with confidence.
I've been there myself, so I do understand.

If you want to get started as soon as possible it still may be possible to join one of the May courses.

I still have spaces in the Early Evening Breakthough course and the Early Evening Finding Your Voice Course and the Charisma course.

I also will be running a one day Express Yourself Workshop in July:

The Breakthrough Group is the first step for many people - particularly if you feel shy, self-conscious or experience social anxiety I've seen some miraculous transformations in my 20 years of running this group.

LAST PLACES  for the evening course, spaces on the early evening course

If speaking up in groups, being heard, or any public speaking is your challenge, then the  Finding Your Voice course is a good place to start if anxiety and nerves are the issue. I've had people with very severe symptoms including panic attacks, overcome these issues with relative ease.

The evening course is FULL, there are still some places on the early evening course.

"I don't know what to say" improvisation for social confidence is great for people with average confidence who experience some form of social anxiety or awkwardness but find themselves stumped with knowing what to say. Working through improvisation and will transform your verbal confidence and social skills.

This course is fully booked.

I also will be launching a more advanced course Charisma and Speaking Practice on May 17th 6-7.30pm.

You can book online for all my courses and events.

Book a telephone appointment with me or get in touch by email if you're not sure which course is right for you.

If difficult life experiences are undermining your confidence, Breakthrough Plus is a 2-weekend course that will enable you to transform those experiences. It will be running again in the Autumn.

I look forward to hearing from you

Best, Claire
