Personal Development

Personal growth and development is a transformational process and a journey in itself where you may discover new things about yourself or even change direction in a certain area of life altogether. During a process of personal development, improvements are made in your physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, or financial state. You first assess what is no longer working in your life and set a goal that you wish to accomplish, but you may not always know how to get there or feel overwhelmed and unsure how to begin and what steps to take.

This process of personal development is often triggered by an important life event that inspires you to improve and empower yourself by discovering where your full potential lies. The result is a more satisfying and meaningful life, which is evident in your relationships, place of work, self-image and self-confidence, as well as your worldview.

Once this process is underway, the results are endless. You will find a new meaning in life and belief in yourself that was absent before. Life goals will be created and become possible. You will use your full potential to benefit yourself and others. New skills and talents will be discovered. Old relationships will be strengthened and new ones will be easily formed. All of which will give you a boost in your self-image and self-confidence.

Every person is a unique individual and there is no universal strategy for personal growth and development that can be listed. Each pathway towards growth is a very personal journey. It is up to the individual to find which road is theirs and where it leads. This can be difficult at times if some blockages may seem insurmountable or if the direction itself is unclear and confusing.

My Personal Development service can help you deal with these issues and provide guidance and support during your personal journey of discovery.

Differences Between Psychotherapy and Personal Development Service

People often get confused about the two processes, but they are in fact fundamentally different. Personal growth can certainly be part of any psychotherapy service, but therapy cannot be offered if a client is seeking Personal Development service as the latter assumes that a client is mentally and emotionally stable to begin with. Psychotherapy is deeply rooted in the past and brings together a multitude of inter-connecting issues, how they are affecting present cognition and functioning and what possible steps can be taken to improve them. Personal Development service, on the other hand, is all about the present and the future, it assesses a current standing and sets a goal to be accomplished, some closely related issues may still be explored but in more direct and goal-oriented way. Psychotherapy, depending on type, is often just a reflection and introspection while personal growth is all about action and change.

Issues Appropriate for Personal Development Service:
  • Confidence Building and Motivation
  • Relationship Skills Building
  • Communication Skills
  • Work Environment or Career Change
  • Life Transitions or Blockages
  • Organizational and Studying Techniques
  • Healthy Living or Weight Loss
  • Loneliness and Social Network Building
  • Spirituality Issues

A client may choose to work on some specific issue or explore goals in an entire area of life, such as personal, professional or social.

Personal Development sessions are by appointment only, they are available in 30 or 45 minutes options and are conducted either in person or over the telephone.

Face-to-face sessions are available at both of my office locations. I also often run small groups geared toward working on some specific issues, it is a great money-saving option that still offers plenty of individual attention as my groups are very small. Please contact me to find out which groups will be running in the nearest future.

Remote coaching is a convenient way to work with me from any location in the United States and can be done over the telephone from the comfort of your home. Skype video-conferencing is also available.

Personal Development sessions are not reimbursed by health insurances, however, my fees are very affordable, and discount packages are also available when multiple sessions are purchased at the same time. All payments are due via PayPal prior to each session.
