    1.  We recognize and work with the expertise, experience and strengths that you already have. 

              2. We take an ASSESSMENT of your current skills and interests and provide a method whereby you can use your specialties within our framework. If you haven’t  identified your specialty, don’t worry, we will help  you.                       

              3. Most of our students are counseling, coaching or giving advice already informally, but they are not managing their  time, they are getting drained, but not getting paid.  We help you to go from exhausted volunteer to

PAID PROFESSIONAL, while continuing your 'calling' to help people.

A Final Paper from P.T.T.I. student, Anastasio Timbinaris, who was in the

Life Coach Training Class:

The emotional traumas and hurts that people sometimes are subjected to in their lives can follow them throughout the rest of their lives affecting everyone and everything that they come in contact with. Without properly diagnosing the root problem or occurrence may lead to false solutions that would not help the situation and in most cases cause deeper traumas and even involve psychotropic drugs. Masking the symptoms will not fix the underlying problems.


The process of the C.A.R.R.Y technique is very effective in finding closure and healing from things of the past. Once the problem or problems are isolated they can then be released . At that point the process of forgiveness, anger release, and overcoming fear can take place. Lifting and releasing these heavy burdens will bring new life  without being plagued by the things of the past.


Raising-up and training Counselors and Life Coaches is essential to effectively release many people from the bondages in their lives. Even after the breakthroughs and healings have occurred, strong Christian Life Coaches are important in helping structure life’s decisions in keeping in balance for completing our life’s purpose.


Learning the Seven Basic Categories, I have found how important of a tool it is in helping others no matter what walk of life they come from or what occupation they have in this world. Addressing and maintaining each of the Seven Categories helps both the Coach and the client to recognize any immediate problems or any materializing problems for the near future. Acting on the situation before it happens or early on, can give us enough time to change the decision making process of the client. I think that it would be important for everyone, especially those who are in charge of making major decisions that would influence others, to have someone to bounce ideas off of and discuss important issues with. Accountability is important and has been utilized as the main premise to many organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous.


It is very hard to find people who operate in sound judgments and actions. A certified Life Coach is a valuable tool for everyone, especially those who are put in high places of authority. The decisions of a key person can influence not only those in his immediate office, but countless others who rely on sound judgment for their own well being.

I can see that it is highly probable that every person will have at least one area of the Seven Categories in a state of lack or even total neglect. The more people that we can take through the process, the more healing will take place to the Glory of God! In most cases it is hard for us to see or recognize in which area we are lacking, because we are overly consumed in another. Just as God sees things in a broader view than we do, applying the Seven Categories allows the client to systematically see and make changes or decisions in his/her life where needed. A balance and constant maintenance in each of the Seven Categories creates the optimal framework for balanced life.


I am looking forward to helping people find order and victory in their lives. Many people know the Word of God and still live in defeat. It is the defeat that comes from neglecting a part of their life that is a crucial part of their purpose and destiny. As you already know, the Lord has really given me a heart for such people. God has given us the framework to complete life in Him through His Son, Jesus (Gods Word).


The outlined Seven Categories puts all of the crucial areas of life in a snap-shot. Looking back, many of the people who have confided in me for counsel in the past have had at least one or more of these categories out of balance. I am looking forward to applying all that I have learned through your class to make it easier to show people the importance of Gods Laws for life in an easy to understand format. I like that it looks like a menu, which I mentioned to you. When it comes to people ordering off a menu, they want everything!! “I don’t know which to choose.” I’ll say, “Why not all 7 this time?” Amen!

  I see that there is a big void when it comes to men finding someone who understands to confide in and to talk to. I believe that I will be instrumental in helping men to find healing and victory in their lives and in their families. The majority of marriages that are failing have similar problems; Husbands not being husbands and wives not being wives. God gave us order to maintain our relationships, and with the help of this new training, I will be able to enable men to work out their lives according to Gods perfect order in victory!! 



The CARRY Technique will be put into effect and men and women will be able to cry out to God and release their burdens that are keeping them from fulfilling their lives to the fullest. I have been sharing with people I know in church as well as those I meet on sets. Many believers who I meet on sets have my card and I know that they or someone they know will call in need!


  I keep hearing them saying, “Yes, we need what you do in our Christian communities.” I even spoke to a new friend that I made on set who is a youth Pastor and he told me that when he starts his church, he will definitely make room for a healing ministry like this. The Body of Christ is in need of healing, but because of misplaced shame they will not look for help, but would rather live in pain and ineffectiveness. So sad, I don’t get it..
