From Wallflower to Sunflower – the quiet person’s path to natural self-confidence

(Paperback – 13 March 2017)

This self-help book tells my story of how as a wallflower, I stumbled by chance on a simple and effective way to build a natural and lasting self-confidence.

It explains how the Sunflower Effect (the confidence-building system I have developed) can move from “Wallflower to Sunflower” – to becoming naturally self-confident.

The book is highly practical, grounded in psychology and offers a step-by-step guide with proven strategies, practical tips, exercises and free online resources. Available on Amazon

The Self-Confidence Myth

(E-book – 1st April 2014)

In this 50-page ebook, I will be showing you that it is a myth that you lack self-confidence. You will discover that there is a deep and assured self-confidence that is lying dormant within you and is just waiting to come out.

It’s just you can’t connect with it yet in the way you want to.

The book provides tools, exercises and information that will put you on a track to discovering how you can claim the natural self-confidence that lives within you and why the Sunflower Effect is the fastest and most effective way for you to achieve goals that up to now have eluded you.
