Hello there, Do you want to find the courage to Say ‘No’?

Have you found yourself saying “yes” when you really wanted to say “no”? Do you prioritize others’ needs over your own, only to feel exhausted and overwhelmed? You’re not alone. Many people in their 30s struggle with the art of setting boundaries. But guess what? There’s hope, and it starts with finding the courage to say “no.”

Understanding the Boundary Challenge

As a person-centred therapist, I’ve had the privilege of working with amazing clients who, just like you, have grappled with the complex issue of setting boundaries. In your 30s, life can get incredibly busy with careers, relationships, and family. It’s easy to slip into people-pleasing mode, but this can lead to feelings of resentment and a loss of your authentic self.

It might be something that, to begin with, you didn’t even realise you were doing. Additionally, perhaps you have noticed yourself staying quiet to ‘avoid a fuss’ or not speaking up about the family day out because ‘it’ll just be easier to go along with what they want’. But over time, and when you are consistently doing this, it can lead to growing resentment and internalised heartache.

Why Boundaries Matter

It’s important to get to the bottom of what you are feeling, and if there is something preventing you from living life in a way that actually makes you happy.

Setting and maintaining healthy boundaries is crucial for your emotional and mental well-being. It’s not about being selfish; it’s about honouring your needs and protecting your energy. Also, when you say “yes” to something, it should be a genuine choice. Saying yes is not an obligation. Furthermore, nor should it be about appeasing people in order to avoid conflict, drama or confrontation.

How Counselling Can Help

If you’re considering counselling, you’re already on the path to positive change. In therapy, we’ll work together to:

  1. Identify Your Boundary Challenges: We’ll explore your specific struggles with setting boundaries and uncover any underlying causes.
  2. Learn Effective Strategies: We can discuss different techniques to assertively communicate your boundaries without guilt or fear. We can even practice them in session if that would be helpful.
  3. Build Confidence: You’ll gain the confidence to prioritize your needs and say “no” when necessary.
  4. Celebrate Progress: Throughout our sessions, we’ll celebrate your victories, no matter how small they may seem. Every step counts. I’m here for all of it!
