Books and Further Reading

These are books that I recommend to support your Making Moves journey on different aspects of confidence and self expression.

Reading a book isn’t going to solve your problems but are very useful in keeping you motivated whilst you’re participating in the courses.

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
