Personal Life Guide
A life guide is similar in many ways to a “Life Coach” in that they partner with their “clients” as they work towards a more ideal version of their life. We, here at the Living Adventurers prefer to see our students as part of a team and for this reason prefer to call our selves guides. The Main difference in the Living Adventurers approach is that in seeing you as a part of our team, we become stronger together.
All our guides have either completed the HRT program or are on their way to completing it. Their experience and knowledge are backed by a carefully tiered support system, leading right up to some of the most qualified and experienced people you can find.
The HRT Program is structures to meet not only your personal needs, but your ability to afford mental health care. Our guides understand life’s challenges all too well and have applied their HRT skills and knowledge to their own lives. In doing so, they have experienced the direct and indirect outcomes of the tools and techniques they have developed. Most seeking guidance in life want assurances that the guide they choose has the knowledge and experience that will get them through what we call the jungle of life. If knowledge is the key, experience is the door. Wisdom is when we match the key to the door and can open our minds to new growth.
As guides, our main purpose is to understand you and where you want to go. More importantly, what is stopping you from getting there. Together, we plan a route that will lead you to accomplish the goals you want to achieve. More than that, along the way, we navigate the adversities we face, tearing them apart with sound tools and skills.
We don’t just apply the skills to situations. We teach you how to recognize these adversities well in advance. Building your self-confidence and courage along the way. It’s a step-by-step process, paced at your level of comfort, but also with our encouragement to keep going.
In the end, you will become stronger and more resilient, create and maintain healthier relationships, and set healthy boundaries without feeling guilty in doing so. You will improve your communication skills and be able to guide others in their communication with you. You will become more mentally aware and feel more relaxed, abandoning the anxiety and stress life tends to throw our way. You will learn the value of kindness, caring, compassion and empathy, for they are extremely rare gifts to process.
Guides can lead you to a better life, a happier life, and a life where challenges and adversities will be a walk in the park!
A life guide is similar in many ways to a therapist in that they can offer similar services, however the two professions are distinct in important ways.
A life guide is going to be forward thinking, working with you to move toward specific goals. Guides use focus on your thoughts and emotions in relationships to achieve your goals.
A therapist may help you look forward, though their focus is more digging into your past and assessing your experiences through a mental health lens. Therapists are licensed mental health professionals who are qualified to diagnose and treat mental health conditions, including depression and anxiety disorders.
Many believe they need therapy. Defined as a treatment to “relieve” or heal a disorder. A disorder is an illness that disrupts normal physical or mental function.
Confusion is the lack of understanding, or uncertainty. It is not a disorder. Many today are confused. Life is very complex and navigating through it can be extremely challenging, especially in today’s world.
Most Guide/Coaches will understand the difference between a mental health disorder and mental confusion. As such, they can, and will, recommend those that need therapy over guidance.
The bottom line is if you feel you are mentally ill, you need to see a therapist. If you feel you are mentally confused, you need a guide.
As guides, we want the best for you. Ultimately, your success is our success.
Some chose to start with a guide and together decide whether seeing a therapist is in your best interest.
Some go straight to therapy, and then to a guide. As mentioned, the therapist tends to focus on past traumas and mental health disorders. Once they are managed, then a guide can often take over and assist that individual in reaching their goals in the present and the future.
Both guides and therapist, who have your well being in mind, will be honest with you and tell you which path to take. Occasionally, it only takes a few discussions to make that assisted decision.
Many times, individuals embarking on life’s journey hold firm beliefs about their destination, while others remain uncertain. Life possesses its unique way of veering even the most resolute hearts off their chosen path, often leading them down an entirely different course.
Your journey, unquestionably, is unlike any other on this planet. This very distinctiveness is why seeking a guide can be an invaluable asset. It’s not an admission of losing your way, but rather an acknowledgment that the road you tread can be extraordinarily challenging. In such moments, a guiding presence can provide much-needed assistance, even if only temporarily.
This guide possesses an intimate understanding of valuable skills to assist you in navigating the path you are on, especially when faced with adversity. We extend to you the opportunity of a complimentary initial session – a pivotal moment for you to gauge the resonance between yourself and your potential guide. This session serves as a platform for your guide to comprehend your aspirations, and if you find yourself uncertain, they may offer insightful guidance during this time.
Our offer includes a free session that spans up to an hour. Following this, you can evaluate whether the guide’s experience and skills align with your needs. We are confident that, as you contemplate embarking on the High Responsive Training program, you will discover a profound resonance with our approach. To assist you in making this transformative journey with us, we present some of the areas we are excited to offer for your personal growth:
