    Refund policy

  • This one-day course will help you develop your assertiveness skills and is designed to help you, well, speak up!





    It will help you improve your ability to:

    use your body language and voice effectively

    receive criticism creatively

    give criticism productively

    give and receive compliments in spite of fears of embarrassment

    put requests to people in a way that they can hear them

    handle requests that you are not keen on


    handle a put-down

    handle stressful or ‘awkward’ moments

    Please see my website for a lot more information.

    That's a lot of material! So, some of the above points will be covered more intensively than others, depending on the needs of the group. 
    You will have a say in what we cover, but we will definitely cover requests and criticism.

    Course Method
    This is more about doing things rather than sitting listening to the trainer talking to you. So there will be:

    experiential exercises: interacting with other course members (which is usually fun!)

    watching video clips

    listening to audio clips

    group discussion


    ''Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare The truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare.'' 

    Video testimonials:


    This one-day course will be led by:

    Richard Mills, BA, BSc, UKRC RIC, BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist, CCI Trainer

    Times: 10.30am – 5.00pm
    Date: Saturday 30th November 2013
    Venue: Oakwood House, Office 6, 637 Roundhay Rd, Oakwood, Leeds LS8 4BA
    £65 if you are paying for your place out of your own funds.
    £85 if your own business or your employer is paying for your place.

    Group size
    There will be 4-8 participants. I think it's important to keep the size of the group small, for two reasons:

    so that people feel comfortable enough to participate in the group exercises, which are designed to encourage 'trying on' (i.e. experimenting with) new and useful ways of behaviour, and

    so that each course participant gets individual attention over the course of the day (it's no good if you get lost in the crowd).


    If you book for this please send me your private email address (which I would not pass on to others) so that I can send you an invoice.  I will ask you to send me a cheque or do a bank transfer for the course fee.

    Please see my website for a lot more information.

    Hello Richard, Do we get videoed in this course?

      No, you don't get videoed on this course. Would being videoed be a plus or a minus for you?

      It would be a plus as it is a rare opportunity to be videoed.
