Sunflower Effect Confidence Courses

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 shyness, social anxiety and self-consciousness.

Say goodbye to inhibitions and 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) so that you can be sure of achieving the results you are seeking.

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 will enable you to shift habitual behaviours and mindset effortlessly and easily. And for most people it is enormous fun.

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 is director of Making Moves.  She has developed one of the fastest ways for quieter people to break out of their shell and develop 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 in time, there will be more facilitators offering these courses in different parts of the UK. Please get in touch about the next Confidence Course Leader Training.

Why choose Sunflower Effect Confidence Courses

The Sunflower Effect confidence building system works on the principle that the thing that poses the deepest challenge for most quiet and reserved people - doing drama, being in the spotlight - is the thing that will liberate you from the internal restrictions that are holding you back.

The courses provide a safe environment in which you will gradually expand your comfort zone so that you will find yourself easily accomplishing the things that used to be challenging for you i.e. speaking in front of groups, socialising, networking, holding your own with dominant personalities, delivering presentations or advancing your career prospects.
