Rather than setting one person above the other, true respect lifts everyone up to the same high level

Many people struggle with confidence and relationships, ​ because they find it hard to find the balance between being kind and being assertive

How Kind People get Tough is based on over 25 years helping clients gain confidence and have happier relationships.

If you want to say no without guilt, stop people pleasing, gain respect, be properly heard, set boundaries that work and know where you stand in your relationships, then this is the book for you.
