Assertiveness and Communication Skills Course
Distance learning
£199
Why Assertiveness Training?
Do you:
Find yourself saying ‘yes’ to people’s requests when you really want to say ‘no?’
Bottle up or fail to express your discontent, even if you think it’s justified?
‘Give in’ to others for a while, but eventually become irritable or even angry?
Assertiveness is the ability to express yourself and your rights in an open, non-confrontational way. Yet assertiveness does not come naturally because we have all learned passive behaviours to stave off confrontation.
When you train with Vita online Learning and Education , we teach you how to apply appropriate assertive communication skills in your day-to-day work and life situations: you will acquire practical techniques which will increase your effectiveness and productivity, and help you gain control of daily activities.

It provides them in their living, organic, balanced form. Juiced foods require little or no digestion, so the nutrients are absorbed quickly into the bloodstream, with no work of digestion.

Self Confidence Course
Distance learning
£199
One of the biggest issues that prevents people being happy and successful is Lack of Confidence.
Have you had enough of feeling anxious, fearful and lacking in Confidence?
Do you want to free yourself to be the person that you always dreamed you could be?
We can all point to a time when we’ve questioned who we are, our abilities and decisions we’ve made.
And sometimes life’s knocks affect our Confidence levels so much that we doubt ourselves. It can become a downward spiral.
Significant emotional events such as losing your job, breaking up with your partner or just letting life beat you down over time like a punch bag,
can break our natural aura down.
What if you could believe, think, feel and behave differently – more Confidently?
What if you learn how to have confidence, to trust yourself and appreciate your own abilities and qualities?
What if you felt more comfortable, at peace with yourself and able to deal with others calmly?
What if you developed new perspectives and ways of thinking that enabled you to feel confident on the inside and act with confidence on the outside?
How great would that be for you?
Are you living your life to your full potential?
Sometimes we protect ourselves from failing, from ridicule, from fear. However this stops us from achieving our dreams – from having inner confidence and moving forward.
Do you want to boost your Confidence and Self-Esteem?
We can all point to a time when we’ve questioned who we are, our abilities and the decisions we’ve made.
For some of us, life’s knocks affect our confidence levels and self esteem so much… we question ourselves all of the time. Is your lack of confidence starting to hold you back, personally and professionally?
The good news is you can learn how to be and feel confident.
Imagine what it would be like to be super confident?
Confidence is not something you were born with or without, it’s a learned skill. So could you feel so much better
Do you want to face up to your fears, recognise and change the beliefs that hold you back and feel accepted for who and what you are?
Build Your Confidence Workshop or distance learning course will show you how, in a safe and secure environment.
You’ll begin your exciting journey where you’ll feel more confident, begin to trust yourself and have a much more positive and proactive approach to life. . . and begin to lift up your head, push those shoulders back and walk tall.
What will you learn?
Understand what confidence
How to be super confident
How your self-limiting beliefs hold you back
