The Sunflower Effect Confidence Courses

The Sunflower Effect is a proven confidence-building system based in an adapted form of drama, that has been transforming the lives of quiet, reserved and introverted people since 1997.  It was developed by Claire Schrader, the UK's leading confidence expert in the area of shyness, social anxiety and self-consciousness.

Say goodbye to inhibitions, self-consciousness and develop a natural and authentic self-confidence the fast, fun and easier way. You will discover that it is not just the outgoing, go-getting, socialites that get along in this world.

There is a very high success rate from the Sunflower Effect Confidence Courses i.e. overcoming anxiety, speaking up in groups, socialising, networking or advancing your career prospects. And a 100% money-back guarantee (conditions apply).

Connect with others who are experiencing the same issues: shyness, self-consciousness, fear of speaking in groups, social anxiety, and other confidence issues.

Unlike other confidence-building courses that teach you a series of techniques that you will quickly forget, the Sunflower Effect Confidence Courses work in a unique way. They work through an adapted form of drama that enables you to work from the inside to shift habitual behaviours and mindset.

Currently, all in-person courses take place in Central London.

But the effects can just as powerful through the Sunflower Effect online courses and individual sessions. All online courses are on Zoom which means that you will be meeting online with Claire Schrader and other participants in a private interface through the Zoom platform.

About Claire Schrader

Claire Schrader has developed one of the fastest ways for quieter people to break out of their shell and develop an effortless self-confidence through her confidence-building system, the Sunflower Effect.

She started out in life as a shy introvert until she discovered the way out through drama, theatre and improvisation. 

She creates a very safe place for her students to break out of their shell at their own pace and in their own way.

She has been featured on Sky TV and BBC Radio World Services.

In 2021 she launched the first Sunflower Effect Confidence Course Leader Training and so we will have more facilitators offering courses. Please get in touch about the next Confidence Course Leader Training.

Why choose Making Moves Sunflower Confidence Courses
