Getting your message across effectively & assertively

We think communication is one of the most important tools there is!  When communication is ineffective it can result in conflict, hate, resentment, frustration, anger, and so many more negative feelings and emotions.  Being able to get your message across assertively is one of the best things you can do - rather than communicating in a way that is passive-aggressive or aggressive.

 

If you experience any of the issues below, it is quite likely you need to learn ways of communicating in a more helpful, and assertive way:

  • feeling like people never listen to you

  • feeling as if no-one respects what you say

  • not being able to say what you really want to say

  • having others ‘shut you down’ when you say something

  • being taken advantage of

  • uncertain how to say things to avoid conflict

  • finding that people get defensive if you say something to them

  • lacking communication and assertiveness skills

  • avoiding difficult conversations.

 

The great news is that you can learn how to communicate more effectively and assertively, and our course will help you to:

  • confidently and respectfully say what you need to say

  • get your point across without escalating conflict

  • have people listen to you

  • feel confident enough to speak up

  • communicate more effectively.

 

Our online course will get you started and well on your way to speaking up with confidence and assertiveness!  Take positive action and sign up now!

Setting & accomplishing goals you can actually achieve

If you don't have goals, how do you know where you're headed?  Goals are important for our sense of accomplishment and achievement, but often they can be unrealistic and seemingly impossible to achieve right?  Do you ever feel like:

  • you never accomplish things

  • you don’t know where you’re headed

  • you’re in ‘limbo land’

  • your goals are impossible and out-of-reach

  • you have goals but don’t know how to achieve them

  • you are lacking direction or getting started?

 

If so, it's possible that your goals aren't SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-based).  Therefore, to give yourself the best possible chance of success, we will teach you our strategies for SMART goal-setting so you can:

  • feel a sense of satisfaction from accomplishing your goals 

  • feel empowered by knowing you are giving yourself the best chance of success

  • receive the benefits from the SMART goals you achieve

  • have short-term, medium-term, and long-term goals that are realistic and more likely to be obtainable

  • benefit from the sense of wellbeing from reaching healthy goals.

 

This online course will help you to develop your short, medium, and long-term goals and set a realistic action plan in place to get you on your way to accomplishing them.   Ready - set - go!

Introduction to Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT):
Evidence-based ways to deal with unhelpful thoughts & feelings

Most of us will experience unhelpful thoughts and feelings at some point in our lives, which can often leave us feeling stressed, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, burnt-out, and for some, even suicidal.  Have you noticed yourself experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • irrational, unhelpful, negative, and/or ‘crazy’ thoughts or feelings you can’t control

  • suffering from stress

  • experiencing anxiety

  • feeling depressed

  • like you are in a rut you can’t see your way out of

  • trapped

  • helpless

  • worthless

  • consumed by your thoughts?

 

It is quite possible that your thoughts and feelings have got a hold on you, and you are acting on 'auto-pilot' by letting them control your behaviour without being mindful this is happening.  When you use the strategies in ACT effectively, you are more likely to:

  • feel more in control and empowered

  • not be at the mercy of your unhelpful thoughts and feelings

  • have ways of coping with the demands and challenges of every-day life

  • get better outcomes and wellbeing by acting in line with your values

  • learn basic mindfulness skills to help you stop ruminating over the past, and catastrophising about the future

  • feel less-stressed, anxious, burnt-out, and depressed (which can reduce suicidal tendencies).

 

This is one of our most powerful courses, using evidence-based strategies which have been proven effective.  Would you rather feel powerless and under the control of your thoughts, or would you prefer to feel empowered and in control of your actions - resulting in more wellbeing?  We hope you chose the latter, and are ready to get started on this amazing course right now!  Go on - you deserve it!

Introduction to Positive Psychology:
Gaining & maintaining your wellbeing

Despite its name, positive psychology isn't just about thinking happy thoughts and saying positive affirmations.  Nor does it assume all other psychology is 'negative' psychology.  Rather, it looks for the positive things in your life and works to enhance and nurture them, instead of focusing on all the not-so-positive things (which most of us are well-aware of!). 

 

Can you imagine how different your life could be if you put the same amount of energy and focus into the good things in your life, rather than the negative things?  Wow!

 

This course may be for you if you find you are:

  • pessimistic and always expecting the worst-case scenarios

  • focused on the negative things in life

  • lacking positive emotions

  • feeling like you have no meaning or purpose in your life

  • finding it hard to have things to look forward to

  • already feeling 'good' but don't know how to maintain this feeling

  • worried that your feelings of wellbeing and contentment won't last.

 

In this fabulous course you will learn evidence-based strategies to help you with your wellbeing and help you to:

  • feel a sense of contentment, positive emotion, and overall wellbeing

  • know how to life the 'good life'

  • become more engaged with life

  • have better, more fulfilling relationships

  • find your meaning and purpose

  • use your character strengths to enhance your wellbeing

  • have a sense of accomplishment.

 

We believe everyone can benefit from the techniques of positive psychology, and encourage you to make a start on your wellbeing right now!  Can you afford not to?

Introduction to the Law of Attraction:
Ask - believe - receive

Have you ever wondered why you keep getting the same negative things happening over and over?  Or why some people seem to have all the luck in the world? 

 

The Law of Attraction follows the philosophy of "energy goes where attention flows" - which essentially means that the things we focus on the most, we attract.  Therefore, if our thoughts are focused on all the negative things we don't want, the Law basically says this is exactly what we are attracting back to us!

If you are not attracting the life you desire and feel like you are in a rut you can't get out of, it may be time to stop and consider what you are putting your energy and focus into. 

 

This course will help you to:

  • learn how to start turning things around and attracting the things you DO want to your life

  • put the law of attraction in action using the philosophy of ask - believe - receive

  • find out how to bring more love, or wellbeing, or abundance into your life.

 

Most of us want to attract our ideal life, and it's likely you are no different - sign up for this course now and learn how to start making some positive changes using the Law of Attraction!
