Individual Life Transforming Therapeutic Retreats
Now you can have the emotional breakthrough that you need in your life
Don't make the mistake of thinking that the only way to improve your marriage is to get into marriage counselling. Individual therapy can help as well. As the song says, "take a look at yourself and you can look at others differently."
If you don't get your own root issues dealt with, you may regret in later.
Stop letting your past block your marital love, bonding and connection. Book an individual retreat and see how easily you can improve life around you. Others respond differently when your inner being is more positive, healthy and loving.
It seems unfair but by some divine law painful memories attract more pain, negative core beliefs attract more events like the ones that caused them and negative expectation tend to be fulfilled. Pain that we had creates pain in our heart attracts a life that is a pain in the butt. Do you want to stay in this vicious cycle?
The only ways I know of are God's grace in your life, long term counselling to deal at length with core beliefs or the shorter route of core prayer therapy using some form of listening prayer therapy - in my practice called "Life Transformation Therapy."
I suggest an Christian individual therapy retreat when you know that individual issues are undermining your efforts to make your life and marraige better.
(See: Christian Marriage Retreats for retreats with couple therapy.)
Get rid of your problem once and for all
prime purpose of your personal retreat is to target, with God's
help, the most significant problem areas. Then through a
healing encounter with God achieve emotional healing and life transformation.
Give me 2 to 4 days and see your life transformed
In a therapeutic retreat you receive from 12 to
24 hours of therapy. Concentrated therapeutic time with little
interference accomplishes much more than spaced sessions.
Discover the beautiful person inside - who God created you to be.
My therapy practice focusses on identity issues because these are fundamental to all that we feel and do. My skills facilitate the transformation of the old personality patterns into the new healthy freedom of our identity in Christ.
"George Thank You. You have brought hope and life to me and to so many in our fellowship through your teaching and prayer ministry. The possibility of discovering our God-given identity through this life transformation ministry is exciting and I look forward to hearing Jesus speak more truth into my life and the lives of others, so we can live in the freedom Jesus intends." Lindy, Steventon, Scotland
Are you always self-critical?
Many people who became responsible in childhood - supporting a parent emotionally, keeping their family together, keeping the peace, caring for syblings - these people don't take care of themselves. They become serious children and adults without joy. In their head they live with an inner judge. This needs to change.
"I've never developed compasion for myself before. I learned how to do it and actually do it. I am healing a little girl in a woman's body." Tish (client testimonies)
