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.

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 join our next Introductory Evening is on 10th April. This is a great way to get a taste of what to expect. There will be another one on 3rd May.

The Express Yourself Workshop (on 11th March) - is currently full but do get in touch in case we have cancellations.

My next round of confidence courses are starting April/May:

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

"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.

Or if difficult life experiences are undermining your confidence, Breakthrough Plus is a 2 weekend course that will enable you to transform those experiences.

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.

I look forward to hearing from you

Best, Claire
