Red Oak Coaching has been busy throughout the summer with new workshops for Job Centres and the commencement of Advanced Practitioner EFT training.
If you have yet to experience the gentle but highly effective benefit of EFT then why not make September a good place to start.
EFT is brilliant for anxiety, stress, phobias and low mood. Sometimes only one session is needed!
Once learnt, you then have a tool for life!

Are you able to say No when you want to? Part of being assertive in our communication with others is valuing our own opinions, views and needs. This means that there will be times when you may want to say no to others. This seems easier than it sounds.
What gets in the way are our feelings and thoughts about the possible reaction if we said no to the person. We often over estimate the response of how it would feel to others if we turned the request down. For some it is easier to say no to a stranger rather than to family or friends or it may be the other way for others. Here are some tips for being assertive and saying no:-
Remember others have a right to ask and you have a right to say no
You are saying no to the request not rejecting the person
Listen to your gut instinct –it will give you a true indication of what is important to you
Say no politely and firmly and keep it brief
Be honest about your feelings – “I find this difficult but.....”
Don’t make excuses as these may be counter argued and before you know you have no excuses left!
If you’re not sure ask to get back to the person which will give you some time to compose your reply
Unfortunately due to cut backs I will no longer be offering courses through Petroc and Adult learning. However I hope to be running courses at different venues throughout the year which I will send out information about in due course.
