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 and vision to seek out healthy images of love and 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.
How does Freedom Coaching work?
Freedom Coaching works by integrating science, Catholic theology, and a one-on-one mentoring relationship, introducing a person to healthy forms of intimacy and a new way of seeing the body and sexuality. Freedom Coaching aims at setting clients free from the blindness of our pornified culture and replacing the darkness of a clouded view of the body with the light of the truth and meaning of human sexuality.
How long is the this process?
In a relatively short period of time (usually between 18-30 meetings), clients will acquire the tools necessary to break the power of pornified images forever. Each session is between 50-60 minutes in length, meeting weekly (unless a different schedule is requested). Freedom Coaches meet either in person (depending on location) or via face-to-face video chat online. Because each person is unique, each coaching period is individually crafted with the goal of meeting the needs of each client.
Is Freedom Coaching for Me?
Freedom Coaching is designed specifically for those who have tried “everything” but still can’t break the chains of pornography compulsion. Other programs may provide resources but often they don’t get to the root, solving the problem of attraction to pornified images.
