Too Quiet? Build a natural self-confidence the fast, fun and easy way.

Too Quiet Claire Schrader picMaking Moves Confidence Building Courses are designed specifically for quiet, reserved and introverted people, enabling you to say goodbye to inhibitions, self consciousness and develop a natural self-confidence that comes from a deep place within.

My name is Claire Schrader and I started out in life as the proverbial wallflower, I was far, far too quiet. I am living proof that an introvert need not live on the sidelines.

The Sunflower Effect, the process I have developed is described by New York Times best selling author, Raymond Aaron as  “a real game changer in the field of confidence building”.

See his foreword to my new book From Wallflower to Sunflower. It is based on an adapted form of drama and proven to be the most effective confidence system available for quieter people. 

Please note we have  100% money back guarantee for all our courses

I plan to start offering a selection of Livestream courses from mid May onwards so that people in all geographical locations can attend

Find out what its like to attend a Sunflower Effect Livestream Session by joining the next Introductory Evening  on 8th April 7.45-9.45.
