Product description

About the Author

Four decades ago, Claire Schrader was a quiet, reserved nurse at Kings College; a “wallflower”, as they say. Life passed her by, she didn’t have the confidence to speak up and felt she couldn’t stand up to life’s adversities. But Claire wasn’t alone – her story is the same one playing out in the lives of hundreds of millions of people today.

By a series of coincidences, Claire found confidence in drama and had started to acquire some of the skills that the most successful people naturally have. Before too long she was performing professionally.

She worked as a playwright and as a trainer in UK drama schools. Her first play, Corryvreckan (produced at the Old Red Lion, Theatre, London 1990), was short listed for Best Play at the 1991 Charrington Fringe Theatre Awards and won an Arts Council award.

She reveals her transformational story in her first book, "From Wallflower to Sunflower – the quiet person’s path to natural self-confidence" providing hope to thousands of shy, reserved and introverted people.

After qualifying as a dramatherapist in 1995, and over time developed The Sunflower Effect, a highly effective confidence-building system. She has spent the last twenty years changing lives through her organisation, Making Moves to anyone wanting to unlock their own hidden self-confidence and fire on all cylinders. She is celebrating by releasing what can only be described as 2017’s most compelling self-help book.

She was also co-ordinator of the performance programme at The Studio Upstairs for six years. She developed and directed numerous therapeutic performance projects at Diorama Arts, as well as “Life Story”, a transformational theatre project for unemployed young people supported by Arts for Everyone Lottery Scheme.

She’s given presentations at big events including the Women’s International Networking Conference in Rome, and run powerful programmes in business for advertising professionals, CEO’s, Organizational Development Consultants and Innovators etc.

She is editor of "Ritual Theatre: the power of dramatic ritual in personal development groups and clinical practice" (Jessica Kingsley) published in November 2011 and has contributed to "Emotions: Experiences in Existential Psychotherapy and Life" by Freddie Strasser (Duckworth).

Still an introvert, she has never forgotten what it’s was like to be shy and self-conscious. It just doesn’t stop her from doing the things she wants.
