Joyce Z. Meyers’ Personal Statement
Who I am as a person is deeply connected to the work I do. I see my life as a mission to help others see themselves in their original beauty, to learn the truth about who they are so they can be set free, to assist them in opening to their own unique destiny, and to work through beliefs and behaviors that keep them trapped in old ways of being. This is work I have had to do on myself, and still continue to do.
I have a deep, abiding faith in the potential of each human being. One of life’s most gratifying experiences is in watching a client blossom through the work we accomplish together. To do this work is a gift from God I will be forever grateful for. For me, life is a never-ending journey of self-discovery. It is what I know. It is what I teach.
What brought me to being a therapist was not only my deep desire to be of service on an emotional level, but to understand my own deep pain and suffering. Through the process, I not only gained understanding, but a way out and through that eventually gave me back my life, my self and my happiness.
