The Personal Development Model (PDM), Sections 1. & 2.


Terry's comprehensive life planning model is a tool designed to help you plan your life, organize your ambition and manage the unimaginable. Furthermore, the PDM helps reduce anxiety and depression by providing you with focus and direction, and incorporates 3 essential development philosophies: 

1. Desire

The Psychology on Motivation and Behavior.

The psychological component of the PDM focuses on the operation of identity and desire (dream Life). When we understand how we operate, we can confidently unleash our identities and harness our potential. Under the hood of the PDM, are key psychological theories which have propelled our understanding of the human experience.

Dr. Abraham Maslow's, The Theory of Human Motivation, 1943, suggested that motivation is hierarchical and dependent on settling a certain level of needs . For instance, the motivation to seek love and belonging will only be present if out basic level needs, like food, water, shelter and security, are met. By understanding motivation this way, we start developing the baseline self-awareness needed to build our lives into fulfillment, into a self-actualized state of being.

Another paramount theory that helps us develop self-awareness, was presented by Dr. Sigmund Frued who presented the Topography of Mind. Freud presented a model which essentially outlines how the conscious and sub-conscious mind relate. If you think back to your memories and experiences in life, how you relate to your past could essentially indicate how you behave and present yourself (your identity) in the present. This 'higher tier' of awareness, as I like to put it, enables us to start detaching from those experiences which restrict our potential; a fundamental process of personal development.

Using the PDM, you'll learn how to effectively and easily evaluate and reflect, and you start increasing your self-awareness as you develop your lists of misery, bliss and gratitude.

2. Management

 The Principles of Marketing: Analysis, Measurement and Planning.

Once awareness is established, you can successfully navigate you life into whatever direction you desire, by applying the management tools which can turn small enterprises into profitable corporations. From effective evaluation and reflection, through to setting goals, objectives and life missions, marketing lends the tools which'll help you plan your dream life.

PR Smith's SOSTAC model raises 6 fundamental questions to help business develop and grow, when turned onto your life, you gain the fundamentals to help you develop and grow. A proven process of analysis, measurement and planning sewn into the PDM means you'll successfully navigate your life into fulfillment.

3. Awareness


Just as the universe demands balance to in order to function, so does your mind and your body. To ensure healthy development, you must ensure that you are present and aware of your conscious experience, to maintain balance throughout your life. The PDM first works to restore mental balance by having you focus on reducing misery. Then, the next phase of development looks at restoring mental and physical balance, by increasing bliss and navigating your senses/physical body to blissful experiences. The final phase of development works to restore inner harmony, by strengthening and focusing on gratitude.


Incorporating the lessons derived from the science of yoga and meditation, you'll work acrossthe PDM just as you make your way up toward your dream life. Ensuring balance with mindful development, you'll build your life into complete fulfillment as you develop your goals in priority order; reducing misery (resolving inner conflict), increasing bliss (resolving outer conflict) and strengthening gratitude (maintaining conflict-free).

Client Testimonials




Terry has been amazing. I couldn't be happier with the experience that I have had with him. Terry first tries to figure out what makes you 'tick' then begins to formulate a plan together with you that will allow you to reach your goals, starting with the person you are at the beginning. He teaches you what you need to understand regarding the model he presents, gives you the tools to build it, then 'pushes you out of the nest' in order for you to grow. During the process his insight and feedback give you an opportunity to truly reflect upon what is going on inside and around you. He certainly has an amazing ability to read situations and people in a way that paints a very clear picture. I am so excited to see what else we will work on when begin the next phase.



Fate has brought me to cross paths with Terry and it was the best thing that happened to me in 2015. I lacked purpose and was desperate for some help and guidance and didn't know what to expect from a "life coach" and, in approximately 2 months, I am a more determined person, more positive, energetic and aware of my surroundings because of Terry's coaching techniques. 

I can proudly say that I am so much closer to finding out my purpose in life thanks to Terry. He manages to get the best out of me and he put me on the right path. He is highly recommended. Terry is genuine, dedicated, very patient, understanding and many more but most of all, he is very passionate about what he does and that's the most important thing.




SIMPLY THE BEST. Before choosing to work with Terry, I spoke with 4 other Life Coaches and a psychologist; I was really lost and trying everything (and everyone) that could help me surpass what I was going through. I was convinced that I wanted to work with a female Life Coach (being a female myself), but from the first 2 minutes of speaking to Terry, I felt that this was someone who really gets me (like a close friend) and knows what I'm going through. Terry had the best advice on various "life situations" and all the tips he gave me always made perfect sense. He's truly the best guide to help anyone get through a difficult or confusing period. When I first contacted Terry, I didn't even know what was going wrong. He helped me pinpoint what wasn't going well and how to make it go well - without taking drastic decisions right away that I might regret later. I would recommend Terry to anyone who's feeling confused at any point in their life regarding any situation... Terry will be there to listen to you and to guide you to a happier and more positive place. Thank you Terry for doing this for a living and for spreading positivity in the world.




Terry is an amazing Life Coach. Not only is he compassionate and caring, but he is also intuitive and perceptive and has the ability to quickly see things that you aren't willing to see or are in denial on. When I met Terry I was depressed and lonely. I was in denial that my estranged husband hadn't treated me as well as I deserved to be treated, that he took me for granted and that I deserved better. I was hanging onto what little of it had been good and was in denial about the bad. This was primarily due to my loneliness and childhood abuse issues, so I was hanging on to what was familiar to me and was longing to get back with my husband. Due to Terry's guidance I was able to see that my matrimonial home was a source of loneliness for me and that I needed to find what inspired me, as far as a career was concerned as I had recently been laid off. I decided to sell my house and found another house I fell in love with that I could make my own. I also decided to take the opportunity of going back to school through sponsorship from Employment Insurance. And I realized that my husband had not made our marriage a priority and that I deserved better. But I decided to put any dating on hold until I found myself to be stronger emotionally, and free from any emotional baggage from my marriage. Terry allowed me to see how I could be a positive role model for my young teenage son, by becoming a strong empowered woman and be able to be there emotionally and physically for my son. Now I am feeling positive and excited about my life going forward and hope to one day have a fulfilling career and loving relationship I deserve. And I couldn't have done it without Terry's guidance and enlightenment. 




Great! Terry thanks so much for meeting with me. - In a very rich and intense couple of hours he opened my eyes to some things I was not considering in my relationship. He was full of insight and wasn't afraid to ask tough questions. He listened to me and tailored his coaching to my specific situation. It was a very valuable experience for me.




Terry has played a tremendous part in how I approach every day challenges both in my personal life and in my work environment. Confidence and patience have always been two areas I have had difficulty with. My time with Terry has helped me take a calmer approach to numerous personal hurdles such as the frustration of not being able to immediately start a family, an issue I have been anxious about and struggled with for some time. He is a wonderful and kind person who you can easily open up to and feel comfortable around. Terry has the gift of being able to make you understand the bigger picture of any scenario and help you understand the steps involved for you to reach your ultimate goal.
