of self-improvement is unrealistic- after all, how can a person retain their new image if they haven’t learned the cosmetic techniques or fitness routines or financial management skills they need to retain the “new me.” Personal growth and development therapy works from the premise that you don’t need a radical change to become someone else- rather, you want to become yourself. You want to realize your full potential. This is a process and journey of learned skills and earned insights, not a quick fix from the therapist like a last minute hair salon appointment. I will help you as you assess honestly what traits are worth growing as well as areas like bad habits that need to be broken, shortcomings that need to be addressed, how to mend fences or when to let go, making amends or finding forgiveness to liberate yourself from burdens of guilt or grief, and how to achieve confidence. Setting objectives and other cognitive behavioural therapy techniques are important.
