South Louisiana Hypnosis Center is proud to present the launching of
Times Like These Coaching and Support Group
Times Like These is group for those experiencing Post-Traumatic Growth or desire to experience Post-Ecstatic Growth. Post-Traumatic Growth Coaching is for those who have either experienced an extreme challenge in their life (anything from Depression, Anxiety, Injury, Addiction, PTSD, Grief/Loss, Chronic Pain, or just about anything else) or have Chosen to undertake a Meaningful Challenge in their life.
It is important to note that Post-Traumatic Growth is not the opposite of PTSD. Because transformational growth often involves struggling with something very difficult for a sustained time, many of the symptoms experienced by those with PTSD often go on to experience Post-Traumatic Growth. The key is the Extreme Personal Challenge. it is learning to flourish because of the circumstance rather than buckling under it. It is being strengthened by the circumstance rather than weakened by it.
There are five benefits to PTG/PEG Coaching:
1. Priorities Change and Become fearless about what makes you happy
2. Feel Closer to your friends and family
3. Understand yourself better and know who you really are
4. Have a new sense of Meaning and Purpose in your life
5. Become better able to focus on your goals and dreams
PTG/PEG helps you to UNLEASH your best qualities and lead a happier life. This is where meaning and performance meet for Your Own Best Self-Actualization.
What to Expect
Unlike other Support groups, Times Like These chooses to focus on solutions, playing your game, being an ally for others and Becoming the Hero of your own Story. Meetings are confidential in nature and participants are expected to respect this above all else.
Times Like These centers on the belief that just because you have experienced or are currently experiencing a particular Challenge at this time, It will not last forever and Anything Can Be Accomplished By Anyone. In other words, You Can Get Better and Succeed with Anything You Choose. You are not Condemned to a lifetime of trauma or hardship. Here we Strive to Model Excellence in Every Way. We build each other up by continuing to do so and Ride the Spiral Upward. As an Active participant, you will be expected to research methods and models that work for you and teach others what you have learned. We all have learned things that we have found useful or less than useful. We all have learned from experiences in our lives and succeeded where others have not.
Here you get to use those in ways you have not yet imagined.
Here you get to Grow and help other to grow with what you have and learn more from your TLT Allies.
This is the Time.
This is the Place.
