"The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it,

but it is too low and we reach it."

What is a Personal Development Specialist?      

A Personal Development Specialist is a professionally trained coach, trained in many areas of Teaching, Psychology, Mentoring and EQ Programming, to name a few.   But also and most importantly, a Motivator and a person that is Passionate about seeing their clients Succeed. 

What is EQ (Emotional Intelligence) ? 

EQ is your Self-Awareness:

Noticing your emotional re-actions throughout your day.

Paying attention to your body (what stress, sadness, anxiety and even joy does to your body).

Observing your emotions and behavior.

Deciding how you want to behave.

Being aware of how you connect with other people.

Improving empathy skills.

Being able to read people's body language and the effect it has on you.

As a Personal Development Specialist, I work with our clients using the following guidelines:

(whether this is for Personal 'Life' Coaching or Career Coaching)



Allowing success

Asking questions

Body language









Creating trust

Emotional Intelligence

Goal setting and planning

Going forward with action

Holding the client's agenda

Holding the focus





Powerful questions





Taking charge


I strive working for all of our clients to be successful.  I work powerfully as a coach to guide them. 

Coaching isn't about solving problems, even though it helps and problems 'will' be solved.   

Coaching is about Discovery, Self-Awareness and Choice.   It is a way to effectively empower, to help each client to find their own answers and to encourage and support them as they continue to make important choices, whether it is a career choice or in every day life choices.

As a Personal Development Specialist ( personal or career) I care about what our clients say they want and hold them accountable to follow through, so they can achieve their highest potential, moving forward towards their dreams and goals.

A few quotes that are worth remembering:

"Your life doesn't get better by chance,  it gets better by change."


" I don't trust words. I trust actions."


"If you want something in your life that you have never had, you'll have to do something you have never done."


So, if you are ready for a change in your life, but you just don't know where to start or how to get there, Personal Development Coaching is for you!   Learn to use your Emotional Intelligence.
