Introduction to course: Communication in Relationships
Introduction: Effective Communication, Building strong relationships with others and with yourself.
You spend our whole life communicating.
You communicate with your parents, siblings, partners, children, friends, colleagues and strangers.
But did you learn how to communicate effectively? To be heard, feel heard and have the other person walk away feeling the same way. Do you know how to say the simple things and equally the big scary things without that panicked feeling? Do you know how to get what you need and have the other equally get what they need? To compromise and to stay calm even in tricky situations? Not lose your cool but manoeuvre arguments with-OUT the escalation of voice or feelings? Here you will learn simple techniques, tips and tools to get through any situation.
Equally if not more important, you will learn how to communicate with yourself. Yes we talk to ourselves all day long. Learn how to talk (out loud or in your head) to yourself in a soothing, comforting and empowering way to increase confidence, self esteem and general emotional well-being.
I put together this package because as a counsellor of both adults and adolescents I realised we simply never learnt the skills needed to communicate effectively in relationships and with ourselves. So here are my top six topics, broken down in to bite size videos with explanations and most importantly practical, actionable steps, tips, tools, techniques and processes for you to learn easily today.
These are tried and tested techniques from over fifteen years of counselling, publishing books and articles, running workshops and Professional Development.
The 6 videos in this course include:
- Pressure and Guilt Words.
- Understanding Emotions & Arguments.
- Interconnectedness of Mind and Body.
- Reaction v. Response.
- Perfectionism, Success & Failure.
- Breaking Free of Negative Thoughts.
Plus bonus worksheets from my book ‘The Key.’
