Assertiveness is not something you have to be born with – we can all learn it. If you would like to become more confident around people and get your point across our workshops and courses can help to increase your assertiveness skills.
This introductory workshop is particularly useful to those who feel anxious or aggressive in social and work place situations. It offers an insight into assertiveness and how to increase assertiveness skills.
Being able to communicate assertively means that we can respectfully inform others about how we want to be treated.
Non-assertive communication such as aggression brings up defensive reactions in others meaning they will stop listening. On the other hand, if you are being passive, saying “No” can be very difficult even if you really don’t want to do something. In both cases you won’t be heard and others are unable to understand what you need.
Facilitated by experienced psychotherapist Daniela Nicol, the workshop group is encouraged to create an environment in which participants can feel safe to share their thoughts and feelings.
