Personal Development

It is said in ancient wisdom that one of our tasks in life is to meet:

  • Three teachers
  • Three friends
  • Three enemies
  • Three great loves

All are in disguise and we do not know who is whom until we have loved, left and fought with these individuals.

Personal development is about our life which is full of paradoxes,  but in essence it encompasses the whole of our being, mind body and soul.

Modern life, can put an overemphasis on one two of these areas to the detriment of the other.

Personal development is a process of reclaiming those hidden or undiscovered elements and to find the difference that makes the difference.

There does not have to be a problem, in order to embark on self development; but anything that we encounter both externally and internally can start the exploration of the landscape of our life.

In personal development we are looking for potential in the other, whether it be helping them define their strengths in teams, developing a new skill, expanding their intellectual and linguistic capabilities, creating new visions for the future, helping them become the best they can be.

Testimonials

I work as a General Practioner in Torquay. I have known Julie for 15 years and am grateful for way she has improved the lives of myself, my colleagues and patients alike.

She taught my GP support group the Introduction to transactional analysis course (TA101) and drawing on this the group has grown and developed into an effective way of dealing with the stresses we deal with daily. Julie has been an integral part of this on an ongoing basis providing us with new models and techniques to help each other and our patients.

From a GP practice perspective Julie was instrumental in helping us develop an effective management structure by facilitating a whole team practice away day. She also has helped us better understand the different drivers we have and how communication can be improved by this understanding.

I have direct experience of Julies counselling skills being effective in turning around the lives of colleagues and patients alike.

Julie has a generosity of spirit and unique ability to integrate various models and tools to draw down the skills needed to help the individual, group or organisation achieve its potential and overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of this.
