Here is the first of a several part series by Dr. Alex Loyd on how the Healing Codes and the Cutting Edge came to be.
A number of years ago we had a meeting of the company to come up with a statement of our intention – everything we’re about. We can constantly look at as a touch point to keep us on track. Ours was, “Help People Heal.”
We try to evaluate everything we do on that basis and have for almost 10 years now. The reason I bring that up so that I can address why I think these Cutting Edge programs are so critical and where they came from. It’s not something that we just made up – having a weekly program.
A number of years ago when I finished my Masters’ Degree in psychology and was accepted into the Doctoral program but hadn’t really started it yet, I put my shingle out to do private practice counseling and therapy. I was not licensed. I was not a doctor, so I had to be under the supervision of a licensed psychologist, which I was, Dr. Robert Sturgeon, a clinical psychologist.
I had the audacity, as this wet-behind-the-ears Masters’ student, to charge the very top range of doctor of psychology rates in Nashville, Tennessee. At that time it was about $120 per hour. I believed with all my heart is I would not be one of these therapists who would be seeing people for one to three years. Because of what I was going to do I would be seeing people from session to about three months. That’s exactly the way it worked out. Most psychologists in Nashville were seeing their clients one to three years. I was seeing them one session to three months.
The only reason I’m bringing this up is because the difference in me and all the other psychologists and therapists in Nashville Tennessee was one thing. It was the spiritual laws of nature that I was integrating into my therapy. In fact it was my therapy. That’s what I did with every single client, these principles that I’m sharing with you every single week.
