Taking The High Road

"The quality of one's life is the quality of one's communication. The meaning of communication is the response you get. Awareness of each response promotes choices."

Meet Pearlan, owner and founder of The Self Center.

That's right ...the name is Pearlan – different yet real.

So too are her talents – different yet real.

Pearlan assists you in achieving "Rapport in Human Excellence."

As she puts it, "Think of me as reframing your thinking to achieve the results you want." As one client tells it, "She is like an antibiotic for your mind! One dose of her and you feel so much better, with lasting effects. This is one prescription you will want to refill."

Your maximum potential can be realized.

You learn to understand, integrate and align with yourself and others. Achieve positive and effective communication on any level with any individual or groups you encounter. Imagine what this can do for you personally and professionally!

See yourself as the person you want to be.

"To know is nothing - to imagine is everything."

Allow yourself to experience the unique combination of methods and techniques Pearlan offers. She effectively integrates the sciences of Handwriting Analysis, Hypnotherapy, REIKI, Emotional Freedom Technique and Neurolinguistic Programming to help you understand the impact of words and actions on yourself and others. Whether she is working with you in an individual session or group presentations, Pearlan transforms these sciences to an art form, as you begin to understand intentions, traits, behaviors, perceptions and responses in interacting with others.

In short, she helps you to harness the powers of your own mind and create positive, useful and desirable states of well being.

You will learn about skills of interaction, persuasion and leadership.

You will develop self-control, focus and relaxation.

You will find your comfort zone and that of others. That's right ...

You will increase your sense of confidence and well being in any and all situations.

You will build immediate rapport with others.

Ultimately, you will learn the meaning of

"Rapport in human excellence."

If you have tried these techniques, you know.

If you have not, you must!

You owe it to yourself.

Naturally, you will want to read on to discover what lies ahead for you.

"What I need ... I have. What I want ... is within me."

In relating to her clients, Pearlan draws from her own life experiences, as she understands the challenges involved in the day-to-day operation of "Living" be it running a household, running a company, or just "running on empty!" Her experiences with hiring, team building, management training, and conflict resolution as well as "rescue", allow her to offer tried and true suggestions that can result in a more peaceful and productive environment.

The key to successful communication and productivity is in
"Understanding these differences."

Even more, in understanding these differences, you learn, that
"The best technique ... is the absence of technique."

"Be who you seem to be ... Seem to be who you truly are."
