If you find you are considering these or similar statements then personal development might be right for you.
There are times in life when we lose direction or want to make changes, but we are unsure where to start or what exactly we want to do. Personal development is a method of working with you to understand your core values, strengths, hopes, identify areas of challenge and explore your potential. Using a strengths-based and goal-focused approach, we will work together so you can gain greater self-understanding; enabling you to find deeper meaning and an improved sense of well-being, authenticity, productivity and hope for a more fulfilling future.
Personal development focuses on strengthening your resilience, boosting your confidence, increasing your self-esteem and overcoming negative patterns that may have held you back in the past.
You may want to work individually, in a group or as part of an established team, to get a clearer sense of the future and what you want to achieve. Personal development can be incorporated into the therapeutic counselling process or used as a stand alone service for either short or longer term support.
Personal development takes a thorough look across all areas of your life, to fully understand any blockages or challenges that might be stopping you from reaching your goals. This gives you the best chance to uncover and work on facilitating lasting change and will help you achieve a healthier balance between the different areas of your life; bringing an improved and renewed sense of purpose, meaning and positivity.
I work in an engaging and creative way, using, for example; solution focused techniques, evaluation, recovery charts, goal focused resolution, art-based strategies and mindfulness. I aim to help you ignite your drive and understand the areas that may need strengthening to allow you reach your goals. Sometimes we can be unsure of our next steps and need the space to gain a clearer picture of the options available to us and what we need to do to improve our situations, lives and overall well-being.
Please contact me to arrange an initial consultation or to discuss whether personal development will be right for you. We will explore your hopes, undertake a short assessment and outline what length of time you may need to complete your goal, or to be supported.
