Assertiveness, Confidence and Communication

Barnsley Recovery and Wellbeing College, 33 Gawber Road, Barnsley S75 2AH

Understanding my Mental Health and Wellbeing



Do you find it difficult to say no?

Do you tend to go with the flow of what others want or expect?

Are you struggling to have your voice heard in a way that is respectful and understood?

In this course, we acknowledge the important part that communication plays in our life, health, and relationships.

Together, we unpack what we mean by words such as ‘confidence’, ‘assertiveness’ and ‘self-esteem’. Using our lived and learnt experience, we work together to better understand the different communication types and behaviours, and explore what makes communication effective, rather than transactional. As the course progresses, we develop our knowledge of assertiveness skills and have an opportunity to practice becoming more confident in applying them.


“A brilliant course to build confidence and help you manage situations of conflict in a healthier way”
