Are you prone to being a people pleaser?

Do you put everyone else's needs ahead of your own?

Do you lack in assertiveness skills or have difficulty saying "No"?

If you have answered, “Yes” to any of these questions, you are not alone!

Many of us find it easier to be kinder to other people, that we do to ourselves.

We beat ourselves up and criticise ourselves for not being perfect or good enough. In addition, we become people pleasers always looking for approval from other people. In this course you will learn the impact of not making yourself a priority and learn tips on how to become your own best friend, rather than your own enemy!

Hi, my name is Lisa, and I have been assisting people with confidence for over 16 years. However, I wasn't one of those people who was born with confidence. It was quite the opposite actually!

I admit it, I was a people pleaser for many years!

My life was more about making other people happy and making sure they liked me, than actually caring about my own wellbeing. To be honest, I didn't even understand the concept of being my own best friend.

Fortunately, after being bulled at work and spending time in a toxic relationship, I realised the importance of respecting myself and being my own best friend, rather than always trying to keep other people happy.

It wasn't until my life fell apart that I really started my own personal journey towards finding inner confidence.

Have you always wanted to be assertive, speak up for yourself, find time for yourself, and rid yourself of negative emotions?

In the course, How To Be Your Own Best Friend, I will share with you:

1) An introduction to how to be your own best friend

2) What the real cost is of being a best friend to everyone else but yourself!

3) How our early programming can lead to behaviours such as people pleasing on the need to be liked by everyone around us

4) How negative programming is created and why it is important to acknowledge and let go of this old SPAM!

5) Simple techniques which will assist you to nurture and nourish yourself as a priority.

6) The importance self respect and people will treat you how you treat yourself

7) The importance of tuning into your own happiness preferences and learning to put yourself first

Are you hard on yourself?
Do you fear not being liked or worse, being rejected?
This course will help you become your own best friend so you can feel confident, be assertive, and nurture yourself.
