Sunflower Effect Online Confidence Courses

It has been my great pleasure to run a series of online Sunflower Effect Courses during the Covid 19 lockdown. I, and my participants, have been very surprised at what we could achieve in a zoom setting. In certain areas, the Sunflower Effect approach has been even more powerful online. Some people have said they felt less self-conscious online which was enabled them to break through their internal barriers. Being able to meet online has enabled many people in different geographical locations to participate.

I will be running a daytime Speak with Confidence livestream course this Autumn  – as I am resuming live courses this September. The course will be conducted on Zoom and will be lead by me, with 8-12 participants.

Free Livestream Introductory Evening

Designed for people who find the spotlight hard, or who would describe themselves as quiet, reserved, shy or self-conscious.

  • A safe place to gently stretch out of your comfort zone with other people who feel in the same boat as you
  • Discover the keys to lasting confidence
  • Get a taste of what to expect if you join one of our courses

“Claire helped me to activate my inner self and BE CONFIDENT!! I emerged from the session feeling really great and that had really achieved something. The next week I was at a job interview and I felt so confident – and I was amazed I got my dream job!!” Zahra Kaya

Livestream Course: Speak with Confidence

This is based on the Finding Your Voice Course using the Sunflower effect creative strategies and transformational tools.  Most of the description for the Finding Your Voice Course will apply to this course.  It is specifically geared to people who experience anxiety when speaking in groups or in formal situations.

This live, interactive course will have a much wider remit to serve the particular challenges of the COVID-19 situation and will be adapted to the needs of participants. It will address all kinds of speaking situations: speaking in meetings, speaking in social groups, videoconferencing, interviews, networking, promoting yourself.

“Since the course I have presented to groups of over 20 people, I have chaired meetings and have delivered an hours coaching session to a small group! I would highly recommend this course.” A. Williams  


Dates: 30th Sept – 16th Dec 2020 (Wednesday morning – 12 sessions)
Times: 10am-12pm Find Your Time Zone
Venue: Online through Zoom
Cost: £345 (12 sessions which can be paid in instalments) or £330 full payment discount.

Livestream Course: Shyness, the Way Out

Similar to the Breakthrough Group, this will specifically focus on working with shyness and anxiety issues. Most of the description for the Breakthrough Course will apply to this course. We will also be working with changing your mindset and enabling you to free yourself from inhibitions. Many of my participants have found it easier to participate in the livestream version.

The course will give you more understanding of your shyness/anxiety and provide strategies for moving out of it working through the transformational creative structures of the Sunflower Effect. These are already proven to be just as effective online.

The course based on the Breakthrough Group has worked for hundreds of people with confidence issues – many of whom have been struggling to make changes for many years and report the group quicker and more effective than any other approaches they have tried. It will get you started on your journey out of shyness and prepare you for joining the Breakthrough Group or one of my other courses at a later date.

“Thank you for changing my life. This course and the help I received from the group has made small changes every week that now make differences to my everyday life. That’s a big thing and the effects we’ve all seen are real. Thank you, Claire, for dedicating so much of your effort and time to other people’s progression towards how they want to be. Your enthusiasm and persistence and belief have been fundamental to the success of the course.” A.Q.

Date: Wednesday 13th May-July 15th  2020*
Times: 7.30-9.30pm
Venue: Livestream through Zoom
Cost: £300 (10 sessions which can be paid in instalments)

I don’t know when I will be able to run another Livestream course, but I will be developing an online version of the Livestream course. Please enquire through the contact form below.

Livestream Course: I Don’t Know What to Say

“I Don’t Know What to Say” improvisation course is one of the most effective ways of becoming more confident verbally as well as liberating you in so many other areas of your life. I am running this unique course online through this summer for the benefit of people in lockdown or who are not normally able to attend my evening courses.  And for most people, it is GREAT FUN and a great way to keep your spirits up during this challenging time.

We will be working with an adapted form of improvisation designed for the livestream environment.  You will learn skills that will stand you in good stead for the rest of your life. The course is a very safe environment to take risks, make mistakes, come a cropper and let the many parts of yourself out of the cupboard. You will also learn how to hold your own against dominant people.

“It’s six months since I did the course and I’m still seeing the benefits, thank you for the whole experience. I surprise myself sometimes as to where my confidence comes from in relating to people.” Peregrine C.

What people say about The Sunflower Effect Online Confidence Courses

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.
Connor 28, Field Service Engineer about the Breakthrough Group online sessions

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.
Ben, Health and Safety Officer about the Finding Your Voice online sessions

If you’re feeling ready to take the plunge and book for one of my courses – here’s a bit of useful info as to where to get started:
