And how to be more confident the fast, fun and easy way
The reason my confidence courses are so effective at improving confidence levels is because the work through the Sunflower Effect – the powerful confidence building system that I developed over 20 years. The Sunflower Effect has worked for hundreds of people move from Wallflower to Sunflower (naturally self-confident) because they combine these four elements:
- fun and laughter
- the transformation of unconscious blocks
All my courses and sessions provide a very safe space for you to come out of your shell – no matter how inhibited you believe yourself to be.
As many of my clients have discovered that what make the difference is being with a group of people you can really trust – who won’t judge you, criticise you, and who are 100% in support of you breaking out of your shell. This helps to counteract the effects of having your confidence undermined in the past.
My courses provide an informal, relaxed, non- judgmental atmosphere thatwill quickly put you at your ease, and free you of the internal pressures that normally inhibit you from expressing yourself. Too much stretch and you will clam up – as you know only too well.
The Sunflower Effect works with an adapted form of drama, because this is the most effective way of achieving this – but this is very different from the kind of drama that you might have experienced at a drama class.
It has too been combined with some of the most effective personal development tools that will enable you to make a profound shift in the way you express yourself in your life.
There are few outlets for self expression in our world. And in the course of withdrawing into your shell, you will have repressed many things. As a result you will have shut down many parts of yourself which will have a knock on effect of shutting down aspects of your power – which may show up as a lowered confidence, self esteem issues, depression and feeling stuck. (This will also sap you energy and you as a result may also experience minor and sometimes major health issues.)
The Sunflower Effect provides a healthy outlet for this emotion through experiential exercises in which you will have an opportunity to play out powerful dramatic characters from ancient myths and well known stories enabling you to shift out of habitual modes of being and play out the many aspects of yourself. And gradually over time the walls that have kept you locked away will simply melt away.
Fun and laughter
Fun and laughter are a very important part of the process. You will have an opportunity to discovering the innocence and freedom of being a child at play (even if this sounds very challenging for you) – and this is particularly important if you are someone who gets caught up in the serious things of life or doesn’t even think that you can play.
Play too can shift energy and debilitating emotional states very quickly. One client has described this as “profound play”. It is light-hearted and yet also deeply meaningful revealing important insights and discoveries.
Getting to the source of unconscious blocks
But the real beauty of this approach is that it works directly with the unconscious patterns deeply buried within you. This is what makes the Sunflower Effect distinctive and sets it apart from other approaches. It is these unconscious patterns that have kept you stuck, locked away in your shell, or unable to change however much you want to.
The Sunflower Effect works through the language the unconscious operates in, story, the language too of your dreams, enabling you to shift these patterns at a very deep level.
In enacting these carefully chosen stories you will be able to bring about transformation to buried aspects of yourself through engaging with innocent play – without realising what’s actually happening.
It is as powerfully therapeutic and transforming as any therapy without the needing to delve into painful past experiences. And at the same time it is very liberating and great fun.
