Didi Firman, EdD, BCC, Counselor in Amherst
The focus of my work is on living in response to the call of Self, by knowing the deepest level of truth through meaning, purpose and values. Primary to my work is training transformational life coaches, towards national certification. My personal coaching work is with people who have clear goals to be attained. This work focuses on the future orientation of the client, not the issues of the past. Many, who have already done the core work of childhood wounding, will be ready to step into a sense of personal empowerment and goal attainment, through coaching or coach training.
Psychosynthesis is a spiritual psychology, that focuses on the whole continuum of human experience. I have been a practitioner/ teacher for over 35 years and now work as a Transformational Coach and Trainer of Life Coaches, in Psychosynthesis and towards National Board Certified Coach credentialing. See: www.psychosynthesiscoach.org
I am a Psychosynthesis coach. My coaching work is done in-person, by phone, Skype or email, including semi-structured packages designed to meet unique needs. I run psychosynthesis training programs, including in-person, teleconference and independent study (www.synthesiscenter.org) and I am an author and professor of psychology.
