The Sunflower Effect Courses are proven to work

If you have just landed on this page, you may like to know a little bit about the Sunflower Effect and how it has been transforming the lives of quiet, shy and socially anxious people since 1997. 

My name is Claire Schrader, and I developed The Sunflower Effect®, a highly effective confidence-building system using an adapted form of drama based on what worked for me in overcoming my shyness.

The Sunflower Effect Courses® have worked for hundreds of gifted and reserved people, many of whom have been struggling to make changes for many years. They report that the courses are quicker and more effective than any other approaches they have tried. It has literally saved them thousands of pounds.

Do the Sunflower Effect Online Courses Work?

In 2020 with the outbreak of the pandemic, I offered the Sunflower Effect Confidence Courses on Zoom.

My participants and I were very surprised that in certain areas, the Sunflower Effect® was even more powerful on Zoom. Some said they felt less self-conscious online, which enabled them to break through their internal barriers more easily.

Being able to meet online also has enabled many people in different geographical locations to participate, who otherwise would never have been able to participate. We’ve had participants from different parts of the UK, Europe and the USA.

Sunflower Effect Online Confidence Courses

Since lockdown, I have also run a range of morning online courses (usually 10 am-12 pm UK time). These have included the Speak with Charisma Course and the Stand Up for Yourself Course.

I continue to run Individual Sessions on zoom.

And in Autumn 2022, due to knee surgery, I offered a series of evening online courses on Zoom.

However, I returned to running live courses in January 2023 as currently more people are wanting the in-person experience.

Zoom Courses in the Future

However, it is my intention to run more courses on Zoom in the future so that people who have been unable to attend the course in London can participate. As well as to offer home study courses for people in other time zones.

I am currently training more Sunflower Effect Course Leaders who will be taking over the running of certain of my live courses. This will enable me to run a selection of evening (UK Time) courses on Zoom.

I am open to offering daytime and evening course again. However, I need to know that there is a demand for courses on Zoom.

If you are interested, please contact me and let me know which courses you are interested in and what times you are available i.e. daytime TU-TH, evening only TU-TH. I am willing to run an online course at short notice for 6-8 participants.

This will give you an idea of the online courses we have run on zoom in the past

Introductory Evening

Curious about how it all works? Want to try before you buy? This 2-hour taster evening will enable you to try before you buy. Meet other people who feel in the same boat as you, in a warm, welcoming atmosphere online.

Breakthrough Group

Shy, self-conscious or anxious people. Many people have come into this 12-week course absolutely frozen with fear, and by the end of the course have completely put their fears and inhibitions behind them.

Finding Your Voice

Terrified of speaking in front of groups (public speaking? This 12-week course is unique in that it will actually dissolve the symptoms that cause so much stress: panic attacks, beating heart, blushing etc

I Don’t Know What to Say

Do you struggle in social situations? Never again be stumped for something to say. This Improvisation for Social Confidence course (12-week) is the most effective way I know of getting over the “I don’t know what to say” syndrome.

Stand Up For Yourself

Are you a people pleaser?

Are challenging people getting in the way of your happiness, well-being and success? Learn how to hold your own with the difficult people at work or in your personal life, and how to communicate with them so they respect your point of view.

Speak with Charisma

Have you got over your worst fears of public speaking but know you could be making more of an impact? Charisma is not God-given – it is something that can be learned and developed. In this course, you will be developing skills of speaking with authority, presence and charisma.

Online Individual Sessions

Confidence Issues? Feeling stuck and nothing else has worked?

A Sunflower Effect online individual session is a highly effective way of shifting stuckness. It will get right to the root of the problem very quickly.

You will need a private space and preferably a computer. Although a tablet or smart phone will also work.

What participants have said about Courses on Zoom

Google Review: I had such a good experience with this course!!

I had such a good experience with this course!! When I stumbled upon Claire’s website, it was as if she was speaking directly to me, I so strongly related to everything.

I read a section of her book as well, and again it felt as if she knew EXACTLY how I felt. I am located in the U.S. so if there was a single good thing about the covid/lockdown situation, it was that Claire was offering some of her classes online !! I was able to take the Shyness the Way Out course virtually, and I am so glad I did.

Going into other courses, I have always been able to somewhat predict how they will go and almost put mental blocks up ahead of time, but Claire’s course was not like that. Every week we worked on something that was completely new to me and unexpected.

I was really impressed with the work we did and how it all tied into the psychology behind shyness. I enjoyed every class, and again, Claire’s words always resonated so strongly. I felt myself better understanding what was holding me back in everyday life.

In addition, I met some amazing people that I was able to openly talk to about shyness (a first for me), and we plan to stay in touch and continue to support each other on our journeys, which is awesome !!

I hope to take more of Claire’s courses in the future, and I so strongly recommend them -Claire is understanding, experienced, warm, and encouraging, and her ability to create change within you is amazing!

I was thrilled when Claire decided to run the course via Zoom

With the break-out option within Zoom and Claire’s skill at teaching I don’t feel that I lost anything by not being in-person. In fact, in some ways it made me feel more confident and less self-conscious.

Thank you Claire for delivering yet another excellent and life-changing course.

I was thrilled when Claire decided to run the course via Zoom

I was thrilled when Claire decided to run the course via Zoom. This opened up the possibility of doing it whereas otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to (as I can’t presently get to the venues). Having done the in-person courses, and loved them, I was curious to see how it would translate on Zoom.

I was not disappointed, with the break-out option within Zoom and Claire’s skill at teaching I don’t feel that I lost anything by not being in person. In fact, in some ways it made me feel more confident and less self-conscious as I was in my own space at home. It was exciting to see who we were going to work with when Claire put us into groups, rather than feeling like nobody might pick me when choosing partners.

The course was excellent and I would do it again and again as there is so much content to go over and practise. Thank you Claire for delivering yet another excellent and life-changing course and for navigating the technology with such ease and professionalism.

The courses had a real impact and lots of benefits for me

I attended three different courses online in the past year, having also done courses in person previously.

I can really recommend it from my experience of having done both.

If you’re hesitating over doing a course online, I can really recommend it from my experience of having done both.

I attended three different courses online in the past year, having also done courses in person previously. Claire created a really safe and fun learning environment on Zoom and I found the courses still had a real impact and lots of benefits for me.

Felt connected with the group, and opportunities for smaller group exercises in the online breakout rooms too.

Would sincerely recommend both online and in-person!

Great for my mental health

I was sceptical about doing them over Zoom. But to my surprise, the feelings I felt in the video session were exactly like in-person.

I still got nervous, I still felt accomplishment and I still felt connected to the others.

Connor 28, Field Service Engineer about the Breakthrough Group on Zoom 

Great for my mental health

Due to corona, our last few sessions of the Breakthrough Course were done online, and I was sceptical about doing them over Zoom.

But to my surprise, the feelings I felt in the video session were exactly like in person. I still got nervous, I still felt accomplishment, and I still felt connected to the others on the screen.

Claire was able to put us in separate rooms on zoom for 1 to 1 exercises, and I thought that was excellent. Being on lockdown and talking to others and being connected each week was great for my mental health also.

I got over a real hurdle

I had a fantastic time during the course and definitely feel I’ve changed for the better. I’m less critical, self-conscious and feel more open talking to people.

I’m always buzzing after the classes including the online ones. 

I was nervous about doing the online classes but  I’m now very grateful we got a chance to try this out in a supportive environment.

I felt I got over a real hurdle.

It’s come in very handy through Zoom sessions with friends, family and other situations at work.
