Improving your interpersonal skills can greatly enhance romantic, family, friendship and professional relationships. We may explore the difficulties you have in these relationships and use a variety of techniques, including
- Assertiveness training
- Active listening
- Anger management (for those whose anger does not lead to physical violence, which would need more specialized treatment and containment than I provide)
- Agenda setting
- Boundary setting
- Joining and leaving conversations
- Leaning into criticism
- Letter writing
- Role play
These methods can help you communicate more effectively to serve your intended goals rather than letting anxiety, anger and other intense emotions throw you off track.
