Personal Development Coaching

Ever notice how fast the days turn into years and you realize life’s journey hasn’t been anything like you envisioned? Are you asking, “Why do I struggle and suffer when everyone else is marching toward their dreams? Is this is all there is to life?” If you’re just getting by, not accepting yourself and where you are in life, reflecting on these questions is the first step to personal growth and living an authentic life. My name is Derlene Hirtz; I am a personal development coach with over 20 years of experience, a unique understanding, and specialized skills to help you live the life you’ve always wanted but don’t feel you deserve.

Experience – The Best Teacher

Believe it or not, I have been where you are – lost and full of self-criticism. I was surrounded by loved ones, yet alone. In a job I loved, yet unhappy at the end of every day. Silently, I believed I didn’t deserve good things and God’s mercy. Through a long voyage of self-discovery and implementing what I teach to others (and using my own coach), I was able to finally break through the barrier of self-loathing, let go of negative self-talk, and live every day with a sense of joy and gratitude. Accepting myself and taking responsibility for living my dreams has created true joy, riches of love, well-being, and success in my work. Backed by science and faith, there is proof that changing your thinking will change your life. And, yes, it is possible for anyone!

Making the Choice

Ultimately, what makes us tick…well, makes us tick. We are who we are, in other words. That doesn’t mean you can’t learn to love yourself, embrace change, set goals, and make new choices to fulfill your needs, wants, and desires. And, no, that is not selfish. Quite the opposite. When you make the choice to start accepting and loving yourself, you stop holding yourself back; you’re able to give love to those around you with a whole heart and change their lives as well. Once you embark on this transformation, it is best to walk your journey with a professional who can help you through it and ensure that your actions inspire a permanent shift.

How Coaching Helps

Digging deep to overcome your emotional barriers in order to effect change can be difficult when done alone. It is often impossible to be objective and identify what is really going on. That’s where my help and guidance will give you the support and tools you need to start the personal development process and end up where you dream of being – successful, joyous, loving of yourself and others. Using my extensive experience and Master level training in many coaching modalities, particularly NLP and Time-Line Therapy, I work closely with you to be your guiding light. You will shed your fears and stop being a victim of circumstance; you will start to realize you’re a survivor and you can LIVE rather than just “be.”

Uniquely You

You are one-of-a-kind. Your values, history, and experiences are unique to YOU, that’s why there is no “one” program for success. Your life experiences and your behaviors surrounding them have created baggage that’s too heavy to carry alone. You need a helping hand lifting that baggage, opening it, and disposing of the lack of confidence, feelings of emptiness, negative self-talk, self-sabotaging behavior, shame, guilt, and FEAR. Once we begin working together, you will understand why FEAR is just a word yet it is the number one issue behind most of our unproductive thoughts and actions.

Are You Ready for “YES!“?

During our personal development coaching sessions, you and I will spend time identifying and processing what’s holding you back, how to face your fears, what has to change to go forward, and how to overcome past experiences. Truly let go and move on. You will define your passion and get permission to dream. You will begin to thrive in any situation and stop “getting through the day” and start LIVING each day by saying YES! to life.
