Is this like you in any way?
You are quiet, shy, reserved or an introvert. You feel as if you are in a box. This may also, be a consequence of restrictions from earlier in your life and as a result, you have a tough inner critic constantly censoring everything you do. You haven’t spoken up when you knew you should, and you’ve missed out on opportunities, and this has hampered you in your life and career.
You are confident in many other areas of life but there’s this one area that has you running for the door – giving a presentation, speaking in meetings, or any situation when all eyes are on you. You have a love-hate relationship with the spotlight, so you avoid situations where you’re the centre of attention or exposed in any way. Although there may be a part of you that longs to be seen, noticed and appreciated.
You don’t find it easy to meet new people either because you find socialising difficult and never know quite what to say or because you find it hard to approach people you don’t know.
You find it hard to network or to promote yourself. You never feel you’re convincing enough. You know you have to get better at “putting yourself out there” if you’re going to be as successful as you want to be.
If you resonate with any of these descriptions, then the Sunflower Effect Courses are designed for you. And are the only courses of this kind that specifically help quieter people to build confidence.
There’s a very special bunch of people that come to the Sunflower Effect Courses.
Most people come because they are seriously motivated to bring about a change in their lives – either because their work requires them to improve performance or because they’ve had enough of living their life on the side-lines.
Most have little or no experience of drama before coming to a Sunflower Effect course. They are the “I could never do anything like that – because it will be full of drama types who love to show off”. Fortunately, these kinds of courses don’t attract the “show-off drama types”. In time find drama a powerful way to free themselves of negative conditioning and mindsets.
Without exception, the people who come are kind, generous and supportive of others. They are the kind of people who put others first before thinking of themselves.
It does, however, attract people who are willing to face their fears, and are choosing the smart way to overcome their difficulties, by joining with others – so together they can break free. Although they may have experienced many setbacks, they know they have the seeds within them to change their lives. They realise they are not victims of their birth or circumstances,
Most people comment on just how lovely the other people are and how quickly they feel at home and part of the group. The spirit of camaraderie between people and the sense of connection with other people is what makes the experience so heartwarming.
There is a very wide ethnic mix of people who attend.
But will it work for you?
I have a very high success rate for helping my clients come out of their shell. And the Sunflower Effect certainly works very well if you have these values:You are ready to step out of your comfort zone and experience something new. You are committed to bringing about changes in your life but believe growth does not need to be heavy or difficult. You are more drawn to approaches that are positive and supportive.
When you make a commitment, you stick with it because you’ve seen the results when you do. When you participate 100%, you receive 100% back.
Who is it not for?
The Sunflower Effect Courses are designed for normal adults over 18. If you are under 18, please get in touch to see if it’s possible for you to participate. In time we are planning to develop courses for younger people and children.
The courses are not designed for people who are going through a mental health crisis or who have significant vulnerabilities. If you have a mental health diagnosis or history or have experienced any significant difficulties that may affect your participation, please tell me about it when you sign up for a course. It doesn’t mean you won’t be able to do the course
If you have any doubt about your suitability for joining one of the course, please get in contact with me and tell and tell me a little bit about your situation or set up a time to speak to me.
