The Passionate Life Program What is it?
In 2013, while writing her (Phoebe Hutchison) 2nd book, Are You Listening Life if Talking to You, Phoebe began creating the Passionate Life Program for counselling clients. It contains simple strategies for complex issues. Client benefit with assessment tools, handouts (diagrams) and articles, for education and rapid healing of the following areas.
These areas are targeted:
Thought Pattern Change
Dominant Subconscious Patterns identification and tools for change
(Programs about Life and Self)
Self Esteem transformation tools
Grief / Trauma identification and therapy
Emotional Management – Specific Tools for Improved Emotional Management and Anger Management
Physiological State Improvement – Focus on Improved Sleep, Nutrition, Exercise and Substance Education
Relationship Support – Identify isolation, and give tools for improved relationship, using conflict management and much more
Hobbies – Assist client to identify neglected hobbies and educate client on why they need to prioritize priorities
Daily Satisfaction – Establish how connected client is to daily routines, and give client a score (out of 8) which determines where the client is coping / where they need assistance, in their life.
As well as simplified tools to help client recover from / reduce symptoms of: Anxiety, Depression, Grief and Addiction.
With this program, we have seen clients heal rapidly from Depression, reduce anxiety signs, and maintain recovery from addiction, and much more.
This program utilizes A4 worksheets that can help clients understand more about themselves, their depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, relationships, parenting, addiction and more.
These simplified concepts are making a difference in the lives of many. Once a client learns more about brain chemistry, the nervous system, the subcortical brain, emotional triggers, the impact of trauma on the brain/nervous system, and reasons why they have the issues they have, and how to change them, the client heals fast.
The Passionate Life Program simplifies the complicated, is step by step, to allow no wasted time in the counselling relationship. It is thorough in assessment and reassessment, ensuring client’s receive the best possible care and change.
The Passionate Life Program is brilliant. It works best with trauma therapies Brainspotting (created by David Grand) and Brainspotting for Addiction (created by Roby Abeles) or Somatic Therapy. These therapies enable deep subcortical work to be completed, so that clients can heal fast, with specific / tailor made goals. All our counsellors are trained in Somatic Therapy, and some are trained in Brainspotting.
In 2017, Phoebe began using the PLP (Passionate Life Program) as the base of her newly created 12 x Step Addiction Program. This program is the cornerstone of so many recoveries from Alcohol, Sex Addiction, or Drugs. This program is also helping clients with mental health and relationship issues.
Such exciting work! We LOVE helping clients recover from addiction and we look forward to teaching these techniques to many more counsellors, so that even more clients can reconnect to life again and be happy.
