Making Moves Confidence Courses

My courses have worked for hundreds of people with confidence issues, or who feel held back from expressing themselves. Many have been struggling to make changes for many years and report the courses quicker and more effective than any other approaches they have tried.

Everyone is individual and has slightly different needs, therefore I provide a wide range of courses for different levels of experience so you can progress at your own pace and in your own way.

See my How to Get Started Guide to help you choose the right course for you. And do book a telephone consultation with me if you need a helping hand.

How to make faster progress

Most people find they make the faster and more significant progress when they participate in a series of courses. As humans we psychologically grow in a zig-zag pattern –  we need time to make the kind of shifts we want in our lives.

Therefore I offer a range 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.

Hi 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, I  will be running  Introductory evenings on July 31st and September 4th.

My next round of courses will start in September.

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 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.

"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.

I also will be running a rarely offered advanced Performance Course (designed for quiet people) to enable you to overcome your fears of performing to a live audience.

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
