💵 Free Vs Paid Therapy & Coaching...

Updated: Feb 4, 2022

Cost, or investment being a better word, varies greatly in the Therapy and Coaching world.

.

You can get ‘free’ services from charities or local governments…

.

And you can pay tens of thousands privately.

.

Let’s take rehab for example…

.

Again, something that varies massively…

.

But in my own experience - £3k per week of ‘treatment’.

.

A huge expense.

.

The reality is…

.

Rehab rarely works.

.

I don’t know the exact numbers but the relapse rate after leaving rehab is huge.

.

It’s more unsuccessful than it is successful.

.

Why?

.

In my experience, it doesn’t get to the root-cause of the problem.

.

It deals with surface problems.

.

Yes, you feel great after four weeks in rehab.

.

But that’s because you’re four weeks free of alcohol and drugs and you’ve essentially had a four week holiday from real life.

.

Who ain’t gonna feel good after a month-long holiday?

.

Then you have the ‘free’ services that are available…

.

But the people who run these things - the Therapists and Counsellors - don’t get paid a huge amount of money.

.

They work long hours.

.

They listen to people's problems, and excuses for drinking and using, all day long.

.

They aren’t 100% invested because of the above.

.

They’re tired and underpaid.

.

And in my experience, they only have ‘Counselling’ skills.

.

For real change to happen…

.

The people helping, need a toolbox full of tools to help people truly recover from addiction.

.

Not to mention the actual life experience of going through the problem themselves.

.

When you have the above, it makes you a great Coach, Therapist, Mentor, whatever you wanna call it.

.

You see the problem differently.

.

You have empathy and complete understanding of the issue at hand.

.

You are aware of the difficulties and the pitfalls.

.

You get to the source of the issue quicker and easier, without delving into and wasting time on unnecessary ‘rabbit holes’.

.

You can see almost immediately if that person is ready for change, or not.

.

Of course, working with someone like that isn’t going to be free…

.

But in the long run, it’ll be much more beneficial.

.

Why?

.

Because you’ll recover quicker.

.

Meaning you’ll experience inner-peace and freedom sooner.

.

And that…

.

Is priceless.

.

If you want to discover what that inner-peace and freedom feels like…

.

Get in touch.
