Sunflower Effect Online Confidence Courses

In Autumn 2022, due to knee surgery, I offered a series of evening online courses on zoom. I will be returning to live courses in January 2023.

It is my intention to run more courses on zoom in the future. As well as to offer home study courses, so people in other time zones can participate.

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 courses in the future.

This could either be morning courses or evening courses (this won’t be for a while).

I have also run a range of morning courses since lockdown (usually 10am-12pm UK time). These have included the Charisma Course and the Stand Up for Yourself Course. And I am open to offering these again – however I need to know there is a demand for these courses

So please get in touch via the contact form below to let me know of your interest in future online courses. Tell me which course you would like to do, what time frame would suit you best. I run online courses Tuesday-Thursdays.


Do Online Courses Work?

I ran a series of online Sunflower Effect Courses on Zoom during the Covid 19 lockdown. I, and my participants, were very surprised at what we could achieve in a zoom setting.

In certain areas, the Sunflower Effect approach has been even more powerful on Zoom. Some people have said they felt less self-conscious online which has enabled them to break through their internal barriers. Being able to meet online has enabled many people in different geographical locations to participate.

What people say about The Sunflower Effect Online Confidence Courses

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.
Catherine Crompton, Pilates Teacher, Brighton about the Stand Up for Yourself Course

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!
Colleen, Project Manager about the Stand Up for Yourself Course


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.
