Claire answers questions about her work

How to build natural confidence

Discover how drama build a natural self confidence that feel like the real you. Claire, formerly a “wallflower” describes how drama enabled her to build a natural self confidence – to the point that most people these days assume she’s an extravert. Drama was the last thing she wanted to do.

What is the best course for you?

How do you get started at building confidence particularly if you’re shy, reserved or you confidence is in your boots. Claire runs different course for different needs and area.

Claire gives you an in idea of what might be the best place to get started if you are thinking of participating in one her courses. Which one would be the best one for you?

How long before you start seeing results?

How long does it really take to see changes in your confidence levels… Claire describes how some participants make shifts in a matter of a few hours – others take longer. And what to expect if you joined one of her courses.

Courses run over 12 weeks enabling participants to gradually build confidence and most have achieved their initial goals long before the course has finished.

Does the Idea of Doing Drama Scare You Stiff?

If you’re someone who’s been to drama classes and couldn’t participate, Claire speaks about how she works with people who’ve had these experiences enabling them to free themselves from a lifetime (sometimes) of feeling inhibited, self conscious and lacking in self confidence.

You will be introduced gradually so you can work at your own pace and over a period of time stretch you comfort zone. You will never be thrown up on a stage and expected to perform because her courses are not designed to make you into performer – but to give you a space where you can come out of your shell at your own pace and in your own way

A participant describes her experience of the “Performance Course”. At the time her confidence was at a very low ebb after a traumatic time at an UK Drama school. She reates how by the end of the course she was “flying high”, her confidence restored able to enter into a new phase of her life.

Hi there
Welcome to Making Moves particularly if you've been struggling with confidence. I've been there myself, so I do understand.

If you want to get started as soon as possible, my next round of confidence courses are starting - and it may not be too late to join.

See my most recent Facebook Live Shyness the Way Out - see my Facebook page to watch (you'll find it in videos)

The Breakthrough Group is the first step for many people - particularly if you feel shy, self-conscious or experience social anxiety I've seen some miraculous transformations in my 20 years of running this group.
Courses next start Tues 15th Jan @ 7.45pm (One place - not too late to join) and Wed 23rd Jan @5.30pm (LAST PLACES)

If speaking up in groups, being heard, or any public speaking is your challenge, then the  Finding Your Voice course is a good place to start if anxiety and nerves are the issue. I've had people with very severe symptoms including panic attacks, overcome these issues with relative ease.

Courses start Thurs 17th Jan @ 7.45pm (not too late to join) and Thurs 24th Jan @5.30pm (LAST PLACES)

"I don't know what to say" improvisation for social confidence is great for people with average confidence who experience some form of social anxiety or awkwardness but find themselves stumped with knowing what to say. Working through improvisation and will transform your verbal confidence and social skills.

Starts Wed 16th Jan @ 7.45pm. (FULL)  next course will start 10th May

The Express Yourself Workshop (next on 31st March) is a great place to come out of your shell with a very supportive group of people - you will be amazed at what you can achieve in just one day. 

My next Introductory Evening on 10th April is a great way to get a taste of what to expect before joining one of my courses.

You can book online for all my courses and events.

Book a telephone appointment with me or get in touch by email if you're not sure which course is right for you.

I look forward to hearing from you

Best, Claire
