Communicating with Confidence

Life is full of times when we want to communicate with confidence.

We want to speak up, ask for help, or simply feel confident to chat – all of which can be hard especially if feeling stressed or low. Communication is important to interact with family and friends, make wider social connections and get the right help. It is more than what we say, it is how we say things and what we understand for what is said to us.

Be Confident with Money!

What does money mean to you? Are you worried about your financial situation? Do you know what all those financial terms mean? Would you like to feel more confident about your money and your financial future? Do you have things you want to achieve but you worry about how you can afford them?

This course aims to help build your confidence in dealing with your finances. We will help you think about your beliefs around money, what barriers you face in achieving your financial goals, identifying realistic goals for yourself and exploring practical ways to improve your current financial situation.

Find Your Voice

Life is full of times when we want to communicate clearly for ourselves. We may want to speak up, to make a complaint or to ask for help. Communicating our needs can help us to get the right help from services, to have our needs recognised or to have our rights upheld. It also helps us to feel more empowered ourselves as we realise what we can do.

This workshop is delivered between the Thurrock Mind Advocacy service and other people like yourself who have found their voice. We bring you this workshop to help you find ways to gather the information you require, to communicate your needs and rights clearly and to find the way to make your own voice heard. Never give up … you really ARE worth it!
