What is Freedom Coaching?
Freedom Coaching is a one-to-one mentoring system aimed at helping those with an attraction and compulsion to pornography, with the goal of reclaiming a healthy vision of the body and of sexuality and thus become inoculated to the enticement of pornographic images.
The effects of pornography on the brain have been well documented as mirroring the effects of a physical drug problem. The chemicals stirred up in the brain radically affect the way a person sees and interacts with others. The more a person uses pornography, the more it steals their ability to love, incapacitates them from forming bonds of communion with others (cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 2332), and decimates their emotional world, leaving them trapped in guilt, shame, & self-hatred. Anything but harmless, pornography use can damage or destroy relationships, end careers, and shatter dreams.
Countless people attest that trying to overcome the temptation to use pornography involves more than resolutions, will power, & strengthening one’s moral character. In order to get to the root, we must recognize and treat pornography as an intimacy, identity & vision problem. It requires an intentional process of “rewiring” the brain of discovering one's true identity, seeking out healthy forms of intimacy, & learning how to view the body and sexuality correctly.
Although Freedom Coaching uses principles based upon Catholic theology, specifically Saint John Paul the Great’s Theology of the Body, this process is available to everyone regardless of religion. Freedom Coaching is offered by those who have struggled with an attachment or compulsion to pornography in their own lives and are experiencing lasting freedom. They desire to walk alongside others as they pursue the redemption of their vision.
How is Freedom Coaching different from other approaches?
To be clear, techniques such as accountability partners, web filtering software, regular prayer, Confession, etc. are all good things in and of themselves in the fight against an attraction or compulsion to pornography. However, as many of those who become hooked on pornography can attest, these techniques don’t solve the problem; often they become mere coping mechanisms, enabling a person to merely get by for a period of time.
The reason most people with an attachment to pornography don’t experience sustained, lasting freedom is they’ve never learned how to attain healthy forms of intimacy. This is only possible through receiving a redeemed view of the human body. While from a Christian theological perspective ultimate perfection and purity of vision will only be attained in heaven, we firmly believe (and have experienced it ourselves) that Jesus Christ wants more for us in this life than mere coping mechanisms – “for FREEDOM’s sake Christ has set us free” (Gal 5:1)! His grace can make it possible for men and women to experience a “redeemed vision” in a greater capacity than is typically assumed to be possible.
Freedom Coaching is designed to help clients learn how to see the body correctly, so when pornified images are presented to them, they won’t desire them, because they’ve trained their mind, heart & vision to seek out healthy images of love & intimacy. This redeemed vision, ultimately attained by receiving the grace of God, will break the chains of pornography attachment and satisfy one’s deepest heart’s desire.
