Why is it that some people appear full of confidence, can express themselves with ease and have no problem asking for what they want and need; whilst others have low self-esteem, are treated poorly, and rarely have their needs met? By taking this course, you will gain a deep insight into these issues.

A lack confidence and assertiveness skills, not only affects the way people see and treat us but how we perceive and treat ourselves. You may go along with other people’s ideas even when you disagree, just to keep the peace or find yourself being taken advantage of but don’t know what to do about it. Sometimes you may feel angry but don’t know how to express yourself and either explode, then feel guilty or suffer in silence. As a result, we may avoid social interactions, put ourselves down and engage in other self-defeating, self-limiting behaviours.

If you suffer from a lack of confidence and want to learn how to be assertive and stand up for yourself, then this course will give you the skills and knowledge you need.
