Confidence is one of the most important qualities you need to succeed in life. People are naturally attracted to confident people and even more so to those who exude a magic and a passion for life.
In this introductory evening you will be discovering the keys to an authentic confidence based on Claire Schrader's experiences of being a shy introvert and what really worked in getting her out of her shell so she could achieve things in her personal and professional life she never would have thought possible.
This session is designed for people like Claire who find the spotlight hard, or who would described themselves as quiet, reserved, shy or self conscious. The evening provides a very safe place for you to gently stretch out of your comfort zone with people who feel in the same boat as you.
Claire creates an informal, relaxed, non- judgmental atmosphere that will quickly put you at your ease, and free you of the internal pressures that normally inhibit you from expressing yourself.
You will work with drama because this is the most effective way of achieving this but this is a very different from the kind of drama that you might experience at a drama class. It has been carefully adapted and combined with some of the most effective personal development tools that if you go onto join Claire's confidence courses will enable you to make a profound shift in the way you express yourself in your life.
You will also have an opportunity to release some of the blocks to your confidence and discover how to exude the kind of magic and passion for life that automatically draws positive experiences to you.
Many people, even after this short introductory evening, experience many significant benefits.
The evening will also serve as an introduction if you should participate in the Making Moves confidence buildings classes and courses. Many people go on afterwards to join either:
All of these courses are aimed at beginners and have 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.

Part time evening
Like most people doing this course, I felt nervous before signing up. After talking to Claire on the phone for the first time, I did feel positive about the whole thing and I'm absolutely committed to follow through and make the most out of this course. My 2 main goals are: to deal with performance anxiety (I'm a musician) and public speaking. I found the first session to be relaxing and at the same time I did feel the nerves coming up right before I was going to speak. But the non-judgemental and encouraging mindset that I felt people had, made it easier for me to stand up and talk in front of them. I found the exercises to be new to me and at times they made me feel a bit ridiculous but that's a good thing! I guess it's part of putting yourself out there and letting go of your fears. One exercise focused on talking about another person for 30 seconds to a minute and I found that to be quite ok nerves wise, probably because I redirected my attention to someone else instead of having it on me only. At the end of the session, I felt that I've done the right thing in signing up and I'm really looking forward to the next sessions! Vlad
This course really helped with my social anxiety, and although a bit uncomfortable doing things I wouldn't normally do at first, by the end I was really enjoying myself. I have now signed up to a 12 week course.

Having tried multiple variations of therapy, most of which came at a very high price, I found Claire, the course and the group, one of the most effective ways to help manage my anxiety. I find myself now, much more confident in trusting my instinct and knowing what to say...It's been 20 years of dealing with a common thread of negative self talk so thank you Claire, for helping me shift something that once seemed impossible.
Recognising difficult people is a very powerful tool in both the private and professional environments. This course helped me to recognise them easily and taught me how to deal with them in an effective manner. The course uses drama to put you in real life situations and is also a lot of fun!
