How to book for an Introductory Course

I offer a wide range of confidence courses designed for different needs and different confidence levels.

Most are twelve-week courses and this is where the most significant change can take place through the magical effects of The Sunflower Effect®. 

Some people start with Breakthrough and then progress through to the other courses. Often because they feel they need a step-by-step process.

Others start with either Finding Your Voice or “I Don’t Know What to Say” because of specific challenges they are facing. These courses are a follow-on from Breakthrough and designed for people who have overcome the worst aspects of their shyness or self-consciousness.

Discover why the Sunflower Effect® is so different from other confidence-building methods :

Below you will find an overview of each course.

Breakthrough Course

Lack confidence because you’re too quiet, shy, self-conscious or experience social anxiety?

The Breakthrough Confidence Course is the course that many people do first and is great for building confidence, breaking out of your shell, and becoming more of the “real” you.

The course is a good first step if shyness, social anxiety or self-consciousness is on your radar or if difficult life experiences have undermined your confidence.

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.

Express Yourself Workshop

The one-day Express Yourself Workshop is an alternative way of getting started. Particularly if you live too far away to attend the 12-week courses, as a preparation.

More intensive than the Introductory Evening, this one-day workshop is a powerful day of self-expression. It will provide a safe environment enabling you to shift out of habitual modes of being and release some of the blocks to your confidence.

Discover how to exude the kind of magic and passion for life that makes you look and feel good. You will be amazed at what you can achieve in one day.

This workshop runs 3 times a year – usually in March, July and November in between 12-week courses.

“I did the 1 day express yourself workshop and can happily say that it was one of the most fun and liberating experiences that I have ever come across.

Ben Chaplin, Librarian

Finding Your Voice Course

Terrified of speaking in front of groups?

Then we would recommend the Finding Your Voice – Speaking with Confidence Course.

This course is more geared towards spoken communication, and many people join the course because of the challenges around giving presentations.

It is also great for overcoming verbal blockages and inhibitions or if you feel that you are unheard by others.

It is unique in that it works to dissolve the symptoms that cause so much discomfort when speaking in front of groups or in meetings.

Many people do this course, too, as a follow-on after Breakthrough.

Excellent course to increase your confidence and manage nerves in any public speaking situation. When the course finished I didn’t slip back into old habits, I continued to move forward on my journey. 

Since the course I have presented to groups of over 20 people, I have chaired meetings and have delivered an hours coaching session to a small group!   I would highly recommend this course.”

“I Don’t Know What to Say” for social confidence

Are you often stuck with knowing quite what to say in social situations?

The “I Don’t Know What to Say” Improvisation Course is simply the best way I know to become more confident verbally.

This group is one of the most effective ways of overcoming this issue, as well as liberating you in so many other areas – and for most people, it is also GREAT FUN.

A special group designed for quieter people to learn the basic tools and techniques of improvisation – that will make an enormous difference to how you communicate in a whole range of situations.

“It’s six months since I did the “I Don’t Know What to Say” course, and I’m still seeing the benefits. I surprise myself sometimes as to where my confidence comes from in relating to people.”

Peregrine, health practitioner

You may find this information helpful when deciding if “I Don’t Know What to Say”  is right for you – if you feel socially awkward.


Both Finding Your Voice and “I Don’t Know What to Say” are suitable for newcomers and for people who have participated in my other courses and workshops. Many people do all three courses – as they work very well together. People who participate in a series of courses/workshops over a period of time report significant changes in all aspects of their lives as a result – and truly able to move from Wallflower to Sunflower and achieve the kind of confidence they have dreamed of.

Breakthrough Plus – weekend course

Are difficult life experiences undermining your confidence and self-esteem? 

Breakthrough Plus is a POWERFUL course that takes place over two weekends that will enable you to TRANSFORM those experiences.

Similar to Breakthrough and yet more intense. Breakthrough Plus goes a whole lot deeper, gets to the heart of the patterns that have kept you stuck in old roles and modes of behaviour.

The process which takes place on the second weekend has been life-changing for so many people. In fact, one participant said he made more progress in this one-hour process than in 30 years of talking therapy.

I signed up for Claire’s course as I’d become acutely aware that events in my past were really affecting my present, weighing me down and impeding my progress on all the great things I wanted to do. She is one of the best tutors I’ve ever worked with and I’ve worked with a lot. The results from her courses are life-transforming. Sounds gushy but it’s true.
Jane Roberts, writer

If you are new to working with drama, you may want to participate in the Express Yourself Workshop or one of the 12-week courses first.
