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

When I first enlisted Julie's help, I was and had been clinically depressed for many years. She instantly made me feel that I was in a good place, however doubts arose as they do when one has visited many therapists who have not been able to help. Gradually and subtly I became aware of how gifted, wise and dependable Julie is, and how very much better life was becoming. She showed me the way to processing my thoughts, feelings and actions in a more productive way. In turn I became aware of the person I really am. There is no doubt that Julie has been a bridge to my wellness. Her professional qualifications are without doubt but what makes her work really important and beneficial is a lifetime of learning to understand how the human psyche really works and how it becomes fashioned by experiences that dictate our direction. This requires real commitment to a need to ease and remedy whatever suffering a person who seeks her help is undergoing. This expertise is also borne of the way that she nourishes her own life.
