Personal Development

Personal Development is the process of learning about oneself and as such it will have a different meaning and will lead to different paths according to each individual. Central to the work is the concept of the uniqueness of the human being. One’s life should at the same time reflect this uniqueness and lead to its fulfillment.

During our lifetime we grow and develop physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually in many different ways and levels. Health and well-being, both physical and emotional, are not mere states to be achieved; rather, we should work on them continuously throughout the years.

The aim of my work is to help people acquire a better understanding of themselves as well as to help them find better ways of dealing with their own issues. This is something that can be helpful not only to those going through periods of stress and pain but also to those wishing to gain more knowledge about themselves. As the work progresses, it is possible to learn more efficient ways of dealing with internal aspects as well as with the surrounding world. And as individuals improve their self-awareness, they gradually establish more vital and balanced relationships with others.

Through the use of breathing exercises and meditation, the interpretation of dreams, and the analysis of attitudes and behavior, the work evolves twofold: it promotes a better understanding and acceptance of the processes one is affected by and creates the opportunity for deepening one’s perception and awareness of one’s feelings.
