The Boundaries Course

Learn to identify, communicate & maintain gentle boundaries in your life & relationships

Starting Monday 16th November

You know you need to work on your boundaries. 
 
All too often, you don't express your needs because you don’t want to annoy anyone.

To avoid the unbearable awkwardness of disappointing others, you ignore that little internal voice that silently screams "no".

If only you could start saying what you want a bit more and apologise unnecessarily a bit less.

But...

You're fearful of how people will see you. 

You don't want them to think you're difficult.

There's always that feeling of not wanting to upset anyone.

Imagine if you could say no to invitations without that heavy feeling of guilt for letting people down?

Or maybe you'd like to meet up with friends when it suits you, not always when it works for them?

Hello - I'm Elsie 

I'm a recovering people-pleaser and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. 

For a long time, my life and my feelings were dictated by other people - I didn't know what it meant to do things purely for myself.

 

It felt selfish and unkind. 

 

I would regularly over-commit myself, only to let others down (the very thing I was trying to avoid) and I prided myself on being flexible and easygoing.  

After losing my way a little and ending up in therapy, I slowly learned that there was another way to live.

 

A way of life that was centred on what I needed and wanted.

 

...and it didn't involve becoming the thoughtless, hurtful and difficult person I thought it would - who knew?!

Today, I absolutely love helping other lovely people discover this, too. 

The Boundaries Course is a simple, gentle and ever so gradual guide to setting the boundaries you really need right now, but that you are too unsure or wary to create. 

 

I would love to show you how to connect with your needs, name new boundaries (we'll start off small) and discover how to communicate them with confidence and kindness to those around you.

How is it delivered?

  • 1 module every week, for 5 weeks

  • 3 trainings each week, sent to you by email on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning 

  • Each training is less than 10-minutes, with the choice of listening to the audio or reading the transcript

  • There are short exercises to do on Tuesdays, Thursdays and over the weekends - things like templates to complete or journal prompts to reflect on

During our 5 weeks together, we'll cover:

  • How to work out what you actually need 

  • How to identify and name the smallest boundaries that'll make the most difference to your life

  • How to go about asking for what you need in a gentle, kind and compassionate way

  • What to be mindful of, so you have the best chance of maintaining your new boundaries long-term

This course can:

  • Help you to understand your relationship with boundaries 

  • Help you develop small, manageable boundaries (like saying no to things you don't want to do)

  • Support you to step into your own power & create meaningful changes for yourself

This course can not:

  • Provide an alternative or substitute to working with a therapist

  • Support you with creating more complex boundaries (like overcoming longstanding relationship difficulties)

  • Offer you a 'one size fits all' or fast-track method for finding boundaries easy

Common Questions

  How much time will I need? 

It's up to you and how much you choose to do. The trainings are all 10 minutes, 3 days each week and you'll then have optional exercises to complete on the other days. As an estimate, I'd suggest setting aside about 45mins each day. The idea is to get into the habit of reflecting on your boundaries in general, so you may find some of the 'work' happens organically, whilst you're doing other things. And that's great! 

What if I can't afford it?

I want to make this course as accessible as I can, so I'm offering some 'pay what you can' spots. If you'd like to claim one, please email me with the amount you can afford and I'll sort it for you, no explanations necessary. My email address is:  info@elsieowen.com

Can I go at my own pace?

You can go slower, not quicker. The 5 week timeframe is purely my suggestion, it's up to you how long you take to listen to each training and to do the exercises. But you can't do the course in less than 5 weeks, this needs to be gradual - plenty of time for reflection and processing is really important. 

Do I need a course log in?

Everything will be sent to you via the email you use when you sign up. You could create a folder in your inbox and save everything in one place if you wish. 

How long will I have access?

You'll have lifetime access to all the trainings and exercises - all the more reason to save the emails somewhere safe! I want this to be something you can revisit as many times as you need. For example, you could go back to certain parts every time you want to set a new boundary, if that felt helpful. 

Will this course be available for enrolment again?

The honest answer is, I don't know yet. I would love to say yes but this isn't something I've spent time thinking about just yet.

Is the course taught live?

No, the trainings are all pre-recorded.

Is there a Facebook group or community for participants?

No, there is no group or community. ​​I'll be available on email for support and questions.
