Free Chapters: From Wallflower to Sunflower

It is my great pleasure to offer you 3 chapters from my book From Wallflower to Sunflower, when you join my newsletter.

You will learn how I started out in life as the proverbial wallflower with minimal confidence, until I stumbled by chance on an effective way to say goodbye to my life as a wallflower in a matter of a few months.

Your subscription will also include free videos and resources to support you on your journey to greater confidence, and from time to time information and reminders about confidence courses I am offering in London.

Watch this video to find out more about the book.

Who is the book for?

This book is designed for you whether:

  • You’ve never felt or experienced yourself as particularly confident. Maybe like me you were shy as a child and it’s still with you in some way or you’ve always been inhibited and self-conscious or you had a tough upbringing, which you’ve never really recovered from.
  • There are certain situations where your confidence utterly deserts you e.g. speaking in front of a groups, meeting new people, delivering a presentation, communicating with challenging people. You may have no idea why that is.
  • Your confidence has been undermined due to challenging life events. This could be a relationship breakdown, a work situation, a series of “things going wrong” or events in your family or personal life. You might at some time have felt or experienced yourself as confident but now it‘s as if you never had it. (This is very common.)
  • You know you could be doing an awful lot more with your life than you are – but you’re hiding yourself away because you lack the one thing that you really need: the confidence and self-belief to achieve your goals. Maybe you’ve been told how gifted you are in a certain area, or you’ve got numerous qualifications/letters after your name– but you’re not doing anything with any of them…

Don’t want more junk in your inbox?

I understand, I hate junk too. But read some of the spontaneous, unasked-for comments from readers, which is a sampling of the kind of things people write to me as a result of receiving the my newsletter and similar products.

Dear  Ms. Schrader, 
I came across your website the other day while searching for information on overcoming fears. Your compassion and enthusiasm immediately grabbed my attention. I read many of your articles and signed up for your digital book. The book has been so reassuring, insightful and beneficial, and it’s not yet over! I especially enjoyed the beaming visualisation and it’s something I am now incorporating into my daily life. Thank you so much for providing the information and opportunity for me to take a step in overcoming my fears. I can’t begin to tell you how much it’s appreciated.

In one fell swoop you have discovered me. I do feel I fit many of the descriptions outlined in the book. I feel relived at this because I had thought for many years that there must be something wrong with me as I could never quite  connect with people.
D.C. Administrative Consultant

Dear Claire, It’s such a comfort to know that since you have experienced many of the difficulties that I experience daily, you will have a naturally sympathetic and understanding attitude. Many of the psychologists I’ve seen tend to be patronising and clearly have no idea what it’s like to be shy, reserved or introverted. Many Thanks.
G.W. Nanny, Oxfordshire

Recently parts of your e-book have been coming to mind which made me want to reread it. Although I haven’t made it to one of your courses yet, I have been enjoying your articles very much. They have been inspiring me to live joyously and share my creativity more openly with others. Thank you for stirring up my passion for life!

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, my next round of confidence courses are starting.

See my most recent Facebook Live Shyness the Way Out - see my Facebook page to watch (you'll find it in videos)

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.
Courses next start Tues 15th Jan @ 7.45pm (One place - not too late to join) and Wed 23rd Jan @5.30pm (LAST PLACES)

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.

Courses start Thurs 17th Jan @ 7.45pm and Thurs 24th Jan @5.30pm (LAST PLACES FOR BOTH COURSES)

"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.

Starts Wed 16th Jan @ 7.45pm. (FULL)  next course will start 10th May

The Express Yourself Workshop (next on 31st March) is a great place to come out of your shell with a very supportive group of people - you will be amazed at what you can achieve in just one day. 

My next Introductory Evening on 10th April is a great way to get a taste of what to expect before joining one of my courses.

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.

I look forward to hearing from you

Best, Claire
