Assertiveness Training


Assertiveness Coaching

There are different ways in which you can explain assertiveness and some people do misunderstand what it means to be assertive. Essentially assertiveness means that someone has the self-confidence to make decisions both big and small; and decisions which involve planning and the real life spontaneous decisions where you can be on-the-spot. 

Being assertive means that you can make good decisions, effectively address people and deal with situations around people by being focused, standing your ground and feeling and being comfortable, relaxed and confident in what you’re saying and doing. It is about being and involves being able to say’ no’ to people, only appropriately responding to others and any negative statements or any criticism they may direct at you. And all while being able to say exactly what you want to say; with only the appropriately minimal self-awareness, any low-level feelings of anxiety and self-consciousness.

I can help by helping you to locate any root cause for this and using hypnotherapy we can together address this and from there onwards work on the present and how you can being more confident, assertive and build your self-esteem. There are many ways of helping this and using a combination of hypnotherapy, NLP and ideas from positive psychology we can work on a therapeutic program which will put you on the path of being able to address others more appropriately but also understand yourself better.

There is a difference between being aggressive and being assertive, aggressive doesn’t just mean physically aggressive or violence but also verbally, emotionally, energetically, using or trying to use threats, shame or guilt trips, being manipulative or using coercion. It can even go up to the point of involving others and bullying. However being aggressive and using aggression type behaviours are much different from being assertive.
