What is self-assertiveness?

 

 

Wellbeing is so much more than the absence of stress! It is linked to many aspects of our lives. And one of these is communication. When we don't communicate how we feel and what we need, an internal struggle can take place.

 

According to Nathaniel Branden, author of The Six Pillar of Self-Esteem and source of my work inspiration, self-assertiveness "means to honor my wants and needs, and find an appropriate form of their expression in reality."

 

It is the highest form of self-respect and authenticity, because it promotes honesty and empowerment in each one of us. With this type of coaching:

 

  • You honor first your values and needs, which represent who you are

  • You are coached on how to communicate them to your environment

  • You create boundaries which will protect you from being overwhelmed

  • You gain incredible confidence, by being true to yourself

  • You change your mindset to more self-expression, less guilt and less anxiety. This gives you better mental health

 

 

 

Why being more authentic helps having less anxiety?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Psychologists classify anxiety as a future-oriented fear (Barlow 2002), and an uncomfortable feeling of lack of control. By practicing assertiveness we feel more confident and empowered, and therefore calmer. The following takes place:

  • Better boundaries (which decrease the anxiety from people pleasing and bad time management)

  • Freedom, happiness, better confidence (more resilience)

  • Better decision-making and better focus (usually compromised by anxiety)
