Faster Progress

Most people find they make the faster and more significant progress when they participate in a series of courses, since as humans we usually grow in a zig zag pattern – which means that we need time to make the kind of shifts we want in our lives.

Therefore I offer a series of follow on courses and workshops designed for those who are serious about building confidence and wish to continue to expand and grow. You’ll find some of these on this page.

What people say about Making Moves

Your courses, workshops and gentle leadership have helped me along the way, to allow myself to just be, to be more myself, or just allow myself to express whatever needed expressing.

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 the next round of courses starting in September. Early booking is recommended

You can book online for all my courses and events.

I will be running another Introductory Evening on 5th Sept - a great way to get a taste of what to expect.

Here are details of my regular courses :

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.

If being heard, speaking up in groups or any kind of public speaking is your challenge, then then Finding Your Voice course is a good place to start.

"I don't know what to say" is great for people with average confidence but find themselves stumped with what to say, working through improvisation and will transform your verbal confidence and social skills. We will be running an early evening course in September 6-7.30pm on a Tuesday.

I suggest you book a telephone appointment with me and we can explore which would be the best first step for you, or get in touch by email

I look forward to hearing from you

Best, Claire
