Personalized, individual attention to practitioners

In our relationship with our practitioners everyone is an individual. This means that practitioners have a program developed exclusively for them which follows the guidelines of the DeRose Method and which is personalized. The ultimate objective is to achieve individual progress and evolution.

Practitioners select an Instructor to work with them on this personal development program, setting goals and objectives. Practitioners and their instructors will then monitor the progress consistently and constantly. This program follows the guidelines and the stages outlined in the DeRose Method's evolutive scale. Each practitioner can go as far into this scale as they desire (although your instructor will always be hoping for a graduation to the next level).

Everyone starts at the DeRose Method at the first degree, beginner. The graduation to the next degree takes place when the practitioner fulfills certain predefined criteria which will also be part of the individual development program. Each stage after that generates a quality improvement producing an effective development goal at each stage of the process.

Are practitioners obliged to progress? Of course not! Our Method can be easily personalized so that each individual can have the experience that is best for them. However, your instructor will always want to have goals to help you to improve.

Through a practitioners' program the objective is always to maintain evolution and achieve ever higher levels of performance, development and satisfaction!
