Published Articles on confidence and self expression

Check out these published articles from magazines in UK and USA.

These include Marie-Claire, Kindred Spirit, & Positive Health

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 books are very useful in keeping you motivated whilst you’re participating in the courses, or hitting a few setbacks.

In my darkest hour, I read many self help and personal development books to keep my spirits up. They kept me on track when I was beginning to doubt my abilities.

A great way to get a taste of what to expect before joining one of my courses.

My regular courses will return in January 2021 and will run on zoom.

If you’re feeling ready to take the plunge and book for one of my courses – here’s a bit of useful info as to where to get started:

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 course.

The next course will run on zoom and will start either:
Tues 19th Jan @ 7pm

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

The next course will run on zoom and will start:
Wed 20th Jan  @7pm

“I don’t know what to say” improvisation for social confidencei s 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.

The next course will run on zoom and will start: Wednesday, 20th Jan @ 10 am & Thursday 21st Jan @ 6 pm

Next Express Yourself Workshop, is on March 14th 10.30 am-5.30 pm (subject to govt restrictions_ – another great way to get started.

You can book online for all my courses and events.

If you’re not sure which course is right for you, book a telephone appointment with me or get in touch by email

I look forward to hearing from you

Best, Claire
