Recommended and proven to be highly effective for introverts, quiet, shy or reserved people. Build confidence, overcome shyness, social anxiety and fear of speaking in groups to improve your career prospects.
The Breakthrough Group is a powerful course which will enable you to break out of your shell – no matter how inhibited or stuck you feel you are - and allow yourself to be seen, for your voice to be heard and to develop and effortless confidence.
If you’ve been to numerous courses to help you to overcome these issues, learned countless success techniques that haven’t lived up to their promises – and you may be understandably reluctant to invest in another.
The Breakthrough Group is based on Claire Schrader's experiences of being an introvert and what really worked in getting her out of her shell so she could express herself powerfully in the world. And a result she have achieved things in her personal and professional life, she never would have dreamed possible, and has been helping others achieve the same results for over 16 years.
The group has worked for the hundreds of people with confidence issues, many of whom have been struggling to make changes for many years and report the group quicker and more effective than any other approaches they have tried.
HOW THIS COURSE IS DIFFERENT
Unlike assertiveness and other confidence building courses that teach you a series of techniques that you will quickly forget when under pressure, the Breakthrough Group works in a very different way and enables you to work from the inside, and to build a natural self confidence that comes form a deep place within you.
This is because it uses an adapted form of drama that has been developed by Claire particularly for people who struggle in the area of confidence and self expression. It has long been known that drama builds confidence however the structure and the way many drama classes are taught often achieves the opposite effect and can even set you back.
The course is designed in a way so that you will gradually stretch out of your comfort zone in a safe and non confrontational atmosphere with a very supportive group of people that you can really trust. There will be challenges of courses and opportunities to take risks, but these will be of your choosing. You will not be thrown in the deep end or made to do anything you're not comfortable with.
Your lack of confidence may also often connected to bad experiences in the past that have caused you to shut down and to close down your options. You will have opportunities also get to try out many new and different behaviours and to open up your options - and you will be surprised when you start behaving in new and different ways in your everyday life.
You will also have the opportunity to work on a personal issue through a powerful creative process, that gets right to the unconscious root of the issue that is inhbiting your confidence or self expression and will shift you at a fundamental level. This is why the course is a little more expensive than other comparable courses.
The course is limited to twelve people and a very important aspect of the group is the support and encouragement you will receive from other group members.

I've always known that I suffered from low self-esteem and confidence. I came to the conclusion that it was how I was made and there was nothing that could change that. When I came across this course, I was sort of coming out of one my bouts of depression. I had nothing to loose, so I knew I had to do something drastic, terrifying and different if I ever was going to get better long term. This was the perfect choice as it seemed to have everything I hate, people, drama, speaking in front of groups of people, team work... e.t.c. Well, since the course ended I've had some amazing days and not so good days but never the numbing sadness that comes with depression. I used to get social anxiety just thinking about leaving the house or doing simple errands that required brief moments of human contact. I would take time to plan ahead in terms of what I was going to say or do. I think the most important thing I learnt from this course was people are worrying more about themselves than you. I realised that even the people who seemed most confident have things to deal with and that's okay. It doesn't make you weak, rather it shows that you have courage to do something about it and there is strength in that. It makes you human. Although I knew this for myself, I learnt that other quite people have a lot more going on than what is visible. After I completed the course, I didn't think there was any change in me but then I realised something, I cared less of what people thought of me. Now, I don't even think twice about someone giving me a weird look. I've stopped planning ahead of time and have a more open minded and positive attitude when it comes to dealing with uncomfortable situations. I have a long way to go but this course is the best decision I've ever made. The exercises seem silly and you won't notice the change at first and you'll definitely want to quit in the first few sessions but if you stick with it you'll start to do things you thought you couldn't do. Everyone is in the same situation as you, so there's nothing to worry about when it comes to meeting new people. All I can say is, just give it a go. I would highly recommend this course and its worth it. Thankyou claire for all your help, you are truly a blessing to so many people. :)
After spending my life as a shy introvert I finally reached the point of wanting to change, wanting to be more comfortable with who I am as a person and being able to speak out/feel more comfortable in situations I would actively shy away from. I found this course online and it stood out from the more corporate "this is how you speak in front of people courses", the approach that Claire talked about seemed to fit well with me. I attended an introductory session even though wanted to run away, could barely speak and was rather overwhelmed - it helped me see the techniques used in the full course. I came away feeling positive and signed up for the full Breakthrough Group. My experience over the 12 weeks was amazing. Yes some of it was hard, yes I didn't always look forward to the sessions but by the end I felt a real shift starting and could see that same shift in others. The techniques used mix drama and dressing up with team work and allow you to explore how to become the person you want to be. It is a very secure environment that allows people to open up. There is no pressure (except from yourself!) and the sessions became the highlight of my week. My whole group were amazing and I've made some great friends - hearing them open up about worries and concerns and connecting with them made the experience so much easier. There seems to be nothing more comforting than to know what you feel someone else feels too. That you are not alone or weird. That you are just you. And that's a good thing. It's a work in progress but I feel myself opening up, able to share what's going on in my mind much more than before. And generally I feel so much more happy with me. I still have a long way to go but I have already signed up for my next two courses. I almost can't put into words how much this course means to me - I'm so grateful to have found it. And if you are willing to let go just a little I think it could do the same for you...

I’ve suffered from social anxiety and shyness since as long as I can remember (I’m now 39). I’m very self conscious and will do anything to avoid speaking in groups and speaking up. I’ve had one introductory session with Claire and I feel different, I’ve been buzzing since I left the class and I’m so glad I went (although I did walk past the door once and considered leaving it for another time) I’m now booked on another course, I’m nervous, but excited for what comes next. This is the best thing I’ve done for myself. Thank you Claire for providing a great environment.
After being to the brake though plus course a few years ago, I was a little apprehensive about coming back but from the moment it started I feel very happy to be back, it is sometimes very isolating feeling you are the only one who has trouble opening up and feeling confident, but in this very safe environment you instantly feel bravery that you thought had gone as everyone is in the same boat. I left the course feeling closer to everyone and more confidence with getting closer to people generally. I woke up a little foggier than normal but I have already raised my standard in my personal life just overnight and I’m hopeful this continues & I’m also feeling more relaxed and very much in tune with the universe and can’t wait to see the beauty in letting life happen just as it is meant to. It’s a very powerful course and has helped me get out of my head and into my heart once again. Thanks to everyone on the day and to Claire for this life changing workshop.
