Do you want to develop your Assertiveness Skills? Yes? Well, read on.

Are you sick of being taken advantage of at work, by family or in relationships?
Always find putting others before yourself? 

Ever feel stressed and exhausted at the end of the week because your are meeting everyone else's need, but no-one meets yours?

Maybe you can't say 'no' and end up doing things or going places you either don't want to go to or have no time for.

Perhaps you don't have a lot of confidence or worry that if you don't go along with what others are doing/saying, they wil think badly of you or criticise you.

What stops you being more assertive? 

Not being assertive can led to low self-esteem, lack of confidence, stress, anxiety and difficulties with relationships. We can also often feel drained and taken advantage of when we just go along with others and don't stand up for ourselves or our needs and views. 

Assertiveness is a tricky business as we are often taught, from an early age, that we 'should' and 'must' put other people before ourselves. These 'shoulds' and 'musts' however, often mean we develop low self-esteem, don't feel good about ourselves and feel un-confident expressing our thoughts, feelings and views.

Our therapists and counsellors can help learn, develop and practice a range of assertiveness skills. Putting these new skills into practice can help you feel better about yourself, feel more confident, speak out more and improve relationships and life generally.

Get in touch to find out how we can support you with developing assertiveness and gaining more confidence and self-esteem.

This week's #MondayMotivation is #MondayMoodles.

This week's #MondayMotivation is #MondayMoodles.


Moodles are little creative exercises you can do to become aware of feelings, reduce stress or anxiety, help you relax or feel better and much more.

Some people have a wee bit more time on their hands at the moment (I wish I did!), so engaging in some creative activites for mental health can really improve wellbeing and stress at the moment.

I've provided 4 Moodles to try below. 

Give one or more of these a go and see how you get on... it might even help you feel a wee bit better.

Take care and have a good day, Alexandra


Moodle #1

Moodle #2
