Assertiveness

Answer these questions as honestly as you can...

  • Are you able to get your point of view across in a healthy and constructive way?
  • Can you make yourself heard in such a way as to still command respect from others?
  • Do you communicate well and with confidence during those interactions that could potentially feel awkward, such as asking for a pay rise at work or taking an item back to the shop to ask for a refund?
  • If someone pushes in front of you in a queue would you speak up?
  • Do you really know the difference between being assertive and being aggressive?

If you answered the above questions honestly, they can provide yourself with a deeper insight into how assertive you are. If you answered no to a majority of these questions then you may wish to contact me to see how I can help you become the assertive, respected and confident person that you deserve to be.

Assertiveness

My assertiveness training features a combination of hypnosis and role play therapy in which we practice and implant the kind of behaviours that you wish to have in your everyday life. But of course, it is about more than behaviour. Assertiveness is a state of mind. It is about having the belief and confidence that you do not always have to settle for second best. This does not mean however that you become aggressive as a way of achieving your goals. The moment we become aggressive, we instantly lose respect from others. I will teach you how to use assertiveness skills confidently, minus the negative expression of aggression.

The link between assertiveness and confidence means that I may well employ assertiveness training as part of treatment of low self-confidence and vice versa, depending of course on your individual issue.
