Assertiveness Training Slider 1

Do you find it difficult to express anger or irritation? Do you find it hard to say No! Do you feel you’re overly polite and allow others to take advantage of you?

Being assertive involves being able to express yourself clearly, to have your needs met and your rights acknowledged while also being able to have respect and consideration for the rights of others.

In Assertiveness Training you learn:

  • Which behaviour style you have and where you may have developed this.
  • How to identify your needs and wants and how to express these to others.
  • How to communicate clearly, concisely and distinctly.
  • Practical experience of expressing yourself assertively.
  • Root causes of passive/aggressive behaviour in relationships and attachment patterns.
