Making Moves Sunflower Effect Confidence Courses

Making Moves specialises in building confidence in quiet, reserved and introverted people, through a unique confidence-building system - the Sunflower Effect.

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

The Sunflower Effect is a unique formula based on an adapted form of drama.

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

COVID-19 - flexible booking conditions

From Monday 16th March, all current courses were moved online, and are being offered with great success in this time of challenge. All online courses are Livestream which means that you will be meeting online with myself and other participants in a private interface through the Zoom platform.

In response to uncertainty around lockdown restrictions, I am offering a flexible programme from mid-May onwards and flexible booking conditions for all my Livestream and live in-person courses. There is free re-booking/transfer, and you will receive a full refund if you are unable to attend due to COVID-19.

Confidence and growth are important in this time of social isolation to maintain health and psychological well-being. Connect with others who are experiencing the same issues: shyness, self-consciousness, fear of speaking in groups (particularly video meetings), social anxiety, and other confidence issues.

Courses Starting In May - changes to programme

My next round of live courses officially starts in mid-May, dependent on whether government guidelines allow us to meet in person.  I am expecting that these will be delayed until the beginning of June.  There may be some changes to times and the duration that courses run. If we cannot start the courses by the beginning of June, all courses will be rolled over to September, and you will have the option to join a Livestream course in its place.

You will find full details on my website. I will be updating this as the situation changes.

Livestream Courses

I am currently developing a range of Livestream courses during the May-July period using the Sunflower Effect. You can expect a much higher level of effectiveness than other online confidence courses and a discount to join a similar Live course - if you don't receive the result you are seeking.  Topics include: Shyness, the Way Out; Speak with Confidence (in meetings, videoconferencing, social groups); Stand up for Yourself (speak up for yourself in challenging situations); and Gravitas (speak with authority and earn the respect of colleagues and superiors).

You will need a smartphone, tablet or computer and a private space in order to participate in the Livestream courses. All Livestream courses are confidential and are not recorded. Current participants have found them highly enjoyable, and many have reported it easier to participate in the Livestream format.

You can also contact me and let me know of your interest in a particular course, times and days when you will be able to participate and I will keep you informed of when these course may run.

I have been working my way through many of the Making Moves courses since 2014, from the Express Yourself Workshop, on to the Breakthrough course and then just recently completed Finding Your Voice. I've already signed up for I Don't Know What to Say. That commitment is surely a glowing testimonial in itself! In some ways I wish I had a kind of ...

The course was a great experience as it gave me a safe space each week to really connect with other people on the course and grow in confidence together. There was a variety of drama activities, exercises, role play and group work that I haven't come across before and without this course wouldn't have experienced. I enjoyed it so much I have boo...
