Boundaries and Assertiveness Counselling in Barrie
Have you been so focused on being unselfish that you have forgotten your own limits? Were you raised to sacrifice your own desires or needs and prioritize others’? Do you have difficulty saying no? Do people take advantage of you? Being able to speak your truth without fear of repercussion is essential to a healthy, balanced life. Trying to please others and gain approval sets us up for resentment, confusion, and suffering. Having the freedom to express your opinions and needs can be life changing. I want to support you as you navigate your way through to mature boundaries; boundaries that do not feel frantic or hostile. Instead of regarding your needs as less important than other people’s, lets work on you treating yourself as an equal. Relationships (with partners, parents, friends, coworkers) based on equality are more functional and fulfilling. I can help you gain understanding of where your boundaries started crumbling and how to repair them.
