Coaching

Stanton coaches individuals on general addictive and behavioral problems.  He can help you with the following:

  • Substance abuse and other addictive problems
  • Possibilities of and assistance with moderate drinking
  • Helping people with spouses’ and children’s substance abuse 
  • Relationship issues

Coaching differs from other types of therapy in being directed towards formulating plans and action. It looks to solve problems and achieve goals. It looks to the future, rather than the past. Coaching takes you from where you are to where you want to be.

Stanton works with Dr. Ana Kosok, director of MM (Moderation Management), who specializes in controlled-drinking therapy, recovery from AA abuse, and eating and weight problems: "I am so glad that you do this kind of work and that Dr. Peele had the insight to put me onto you." Dr. Kosok charges $125 per 50-minute session.

Client Comments

When I first met Tracy, many doctors and therapists had given up on her over the years and labeled her as "incurable." I began working with her and presented the concepts of the Life Process Program. At first she was resistant to the treatment ...believing her labeling. Two years later she is a successful young lady in management at her business and she continues growing in strength. I had been given a copy of your book about 1993 and after reading it knew I would no longer use the 12 step model in my work. This has not made me a popular person with the medical community. Some of those same doctors now have seen what has transpired with Tracy and are singing my praises.

After years of being trapped in a cycle of self-injury and suicidal ideation, I found a therapist two years ago who strongly incorporated your Life Process Program into my therapy. Lo and behold, it worked! I have come a VERY LONG WAY from repeated hospitalizations for suicide attempts and reconstructive surgeries for self-injuries to where I am today! I credit your program with my "Breaking Free." We recently began a self-injury support group in our area ( Shreveport , LA ). We are incorporating your program into our group. For years, I only dreamed of a place I could go (outside of a hospital setting) to discuss this secret shame and find better coping techniques.

Stanton Peele’s approach led me to a defining moment concerning my life’s problems. What I discovered was my trouble isn’t with alcohol or other addictions, as other self-help groups and therapies might immediately assume. My central complication in life is lack of structure and self-esteem. Over time, I let these things rule my days. First, Stanton held me accountable. After that, he helped me restructure my daily schedule. Waking up earlier, exercising, filling my day with things that make me feel a sense of accomplishment. This active method – starting from the outside and working in – has helped me tremendously. If you are ready to change, and willing to make a commitment to changing, Stanton Peele may be the person to help advance the final solution.

Stanton Peele guided me through a process of discovering the ‘cause’ of my addiction. We examined the times and places I used drugs, uncovered the feelings leading up to addictive episodes, came up with alternative responses, and ultimately solidified a life style and relationships where I no longer needed to turn to drugs. This was actually a process of self-discovery. I learned more about myself through examining the nitty-gritty of my addiction then if I had spent the last ten years in psychoanalysis. And, basically, I did it all myself.

Thank you Stanton. I feel great about the work that we are doing. You're probably tired of hearing this but, I appreciate your contributions to my life more than I can say. Today I am focusing on the positive aspects of my existence and how the integration of a healthy drinking style will compliment my already rewarding life experience. In this way I intend to achieve "unification" on the issue as to whether pleasurable drinking is a viable option for me.

I've incorporated the things we talked about into my life and relationship. Things get rocky sometimes, and sometimes I feel that pull to just blot it all out. But I've begun taking a walk when we're a bit irrational, and I take a look at my value system — I don't want to support a violent, murderous trade, I want to be alive for my potential children, I want to be able to continue doing what I do for a living, I want to be there for my lover when she needs me. It's scary, sometimes, the pull of the drug, but I now have tools in place to combat it.
