Hi! Welcome to my series, Transform. During this series, you will learn to own your power to change your thoughts, feelings, and actions. You will have the opportunity to learn new ways of thinking and gain new tools for putting all the new insights into practice. Follow the series and practice the tools and you will transform yourself and your life.
I am Dr. Kim Saft. Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Doctorate in Transpersonal Psychology. I have been in private practice for over 20 years. I am an empowerment therapist. I empower people to make change happen. Together we get under the content of what’s bothering you and identify the root of your pain. As you learn how to develop self-love and self-trust, the root problem lessens and you own your power to make change happen and create lives you truly enjoy living. Sound like a slice of pie you might like?!
During my 20 years in practice, I have worked with all kinds of folks looking to make changes in their lives. I have developed an approach to treatment that helps people develop self-love and self-trust, two things that are sorely lacking for many. I have developed this series, Transform, based off of my model for treatment. It is a combination of new insights to change how you think and tools to apply the lessons. As you follow along with the series, you will learn why you think and feel the way you do and how to change your lens, the way you see the world changes. As you start putting effort in, you get results out. Applying the tools I teach you will literally allow you to change your life radically. Is any of this resonating with you? Are you thinking you might benefit from developing self-love and self-trust? Does it sound like a nice concept in theory, but undoable for you? That’s okay. It makes sense that it seems like a far stretch right now, but that’s why I’m here for the ride. I’ll stick by you as you are making the changes happen, teaching you new ways of being and supporting you as you apply the tools and practice using them.
Many people are struggling with shame, blame, self-hatred, insecurity, low self-worth and a lack of confidence. As a result, they are living lives that are unfulfilling. Does this sound like you? Are you struggling through life and don’t know what to do differently? Then you have come to the right place. It is time to learn to think and do things differently than you’ve done before, so you can get yourself to a place where you love and trust yourself and are living a life that is fulfilling.
I’ve developed this series, Transform, for all the folks that don’t have the opportunity to come into my office, I see the results of applying program and my clients are different people than when they walked in. They walk taller, with power in their step. They have learned to accept themselves without judgment and with compassion. They are living lives they want to live. I want to share my model for transformation so you too can reap the benefits of doing this work. You can learn how to change your life and reap all the rewards. It’s so worth it. We have one life to live, that we know for sure. Why wouldn’t you want to make it the best one you can live? The alternative is to stay stuck in the rut you are in, keep doing what you’ve always done, and, you know where this is going, you’ll get what you’ve always got. Enough of that unfulfilling ride. It’s your time. It’s time to put in the effort, do things differently than you’ve done before, and reap all the great benefits. Everyone deserves to live a life that feels good living. We have this life to live, let’s live it to the fullest!
I have made this program as simple and direct as possible. I want to make the lessons easy for you to apply. I really want to see you succeed. As you follow the series, commit to doing things differently than you’ve done before. As you put effort in, you will get results out. I’ve broken the program down into bite-size pieces. I give you practical tools to apply the lessons in the series. I’m here with you along the journey. On my website there is a forum for you to connect with others following the series and applying the tools. This is a supportive place for you to land as you are putting in the effort and making change happen. All you need is a willingness to do things differently and an ongoing effort towards change and growth and you will reap the benefit of doing your work.
We all have power, control, and choice. We might not always be actualizing it, but we all have the power to make change, control the direction of our thoughts and feelings, and choice of how we want to live our life. As you gain more insight and practice the tools you are taught, you will see change happen. Even small changes have a ripple effect. You will think and feel differently as you put the lessons into practice. You will feel proud of yourself for making the effort to do things differently. You will become your own cheerleader, jumping for joy as you create a life you want to live. You can do it. The only thing in your way is a bit of fear and not necessarily knowing which way to go. I’m going to teach you how to address your fears and walk through them. You are going to have a path set out in front of you, so you know just what to do, to get you where you want to go. Time to start exercising all that power, control, and choice.
Everyone has different goals, but, essentially, you probably want a higher quality of life, however that looks for you. You want to be happier, more fulfilled, and have more positive energy in your life. All good stuff. Unfortunately, folks tend to fear the process of change. The devil I know, and all that. People assume it will be too hard, they’ll have to dredge up too much pain, and it’ll suck. Here’s the thing though, this process of change doesn’t have to be horrid, overwhelming, or filled with darkness. This journey can be fun, exciting, and empowering. You get to choose how you want it to go. You have all the power.
Just like I do with my clients, I will teach you to let go of the drudgery you’ve been carrying around, to release the negative assumptions you have about yourself, to work through the baggage you acquired from your family of origin, to stop hating on yourself, and feeling oh-so- stuck. There’s a huge relief in letting go of those old entrapments. How can that be bad? It isn’t. It’s a good ride, once you get on. You get to flood your system with all the positive messages you never got before. To reap all these rewards, all you need is to put effort in and have a willingness to change. Ready for the ride?
This series is made up of 18 lessons. Each lesson addresses ‘big ticket’ items on your growth journey. Within each section, there are mini-lessons that break the bigger topic down into bite-size pieces. I want all this new information to be digestible for you. The goal is for you to be able to take it in, make sense of it, and really understand how it applies to you. Interspersed throughout the lessons, I’ll be encouraging you to put the lesson into practice. The more you practice the new skills you are learning and bring the lessons into your everyday life, the more fluent you’ll be at them and the quicker you’ll feel a reprieve from your pain. That’s the point, right? To feel better as you are you living your life. At the end of each section, I’ll review of all the mini- lessons in that section. These highlights are there to help you clearly remember and retain all the learning from that section. After the review, I’ll provide assignments you can choose to practice to really integrate and actualize the skills into your life. These ‘Act on it’ assignments are the means to really making change happen. If you want to start living differently, these practice steps are the ways to do it.
I’m all about creating a tool box for you to have at your disposal. I will teach you the tools you need to actualize the lessons and bring them actively into your life. They are all doable. If you don’t do something different than you’ve done before, you’ll get what you’ve always got, and it won’t be what you want. It won’t be the change you are seeking. In order to make change happen, listen to the material, let it sink in, and solidify the growth by practicing the new tools. By doing things differently, using the new tools, and applying the skills, you will ensure your success. You will radically change your life, the easy way. Buy your ticket, get on board, and you are off on your adventure. All aboard!
