Do You Know What’s Holding You Back?

My name is Brent Charleton, and I specialize in helping high achievers identify and resolve the blocks that are in the way of their success.

Over the past couple of decades I’ve worked with close to a thousand people and I’ve found that most of them not only feel like something is missing from their life, but many feel blocked in achieving the level of success that they want.

I don’t know you personally, but maybe that’s what you’re experiencing right now.

I’m not saying you’re not happy or that you don’t have a great life, but maybe you are just not where you want to be. No matter how many seminars, podcasts, hacks, etc. that you’ve tried. Deep down you may feel like something is just a bit “off.”

Maybe one part of your life isn’t quite right. It could be your business or career, your health, or maybe your relationships. You might feel like you’re stuck. Like all the tools you’ve used in the past aren’t quite working like they used to anymore.

Or maybe you just want the edge to take your life to the next level.

No matter what it is, there’s a good chance I can help you.

See, you’re probably not even aware of what’s actually holding you back. And it’s not your fault…because you can never truly see your life from an outside perspective.

What’s holding you back and keeping you stuck is not something outside of you, but rather what’s going on inside of you. The deeper emotional and mental blocks that you aren’t even aware of are what’s keeping you stuck. Stalling any true progress or fulfillment.

Your childhood, your family, your schooling, your friends, your traumas, and even your wins in life all shape who you are today, but they also create the blocks that are keeping you from being who you truly are and expressing those truths, in order to attain success. Slowly, sometimes almost imperceptibly keeping you stuck.

Simply put, the blocks that are gumming up the works have to be uncovered and expelled.

About Brent

It all began when I was working as a counselor and then a licensed Psychotherapist in public health in San Francisco in the early 2000’s. I noticed that clients I worked with utilizing traditional modes of therapy would get a bit better. The depression or anxiety, drug use, etc. could be mitigated with some traditional interventions I had learned in school and in training.

However, inevitably symptoms would return over time or, strange to me at that time, an entirely new cluster of problems or issues would show up to replace any progress made in another area.

For example, a client I was working with on Depression / Anxiety would get some relief in that area and then another ‘hot spot’ would flare up; Whether that was a gambling addiction, relational problems, work issues, etc. I felt like I was plugging holes and not fixing the leak.

Now, one could argue that I was working with a very vulnerable group of people whose inner and outer worlds were riddled with problems, both general and severe, so of course, they’d have a new issue and could not make any resolutions or true healing; Commonly referred to as a ‘low-functioning’ person.

However, I noticed the very same thing in private practice with cash-paying, ‘high functioning’ San Francisco professionals as clients. They’d get better in some areas or that much more functional than they already are and then something else would crumble or blow up in their relationships (or lack thereof) or in their work.

I was missing something. It seemed that people had something going on at a core level that was consistent across all areas of their life that was in their way. Something was blocking them.

I began to really consider the methods and theories that I had been trained in and considered the ‘gospel’ of psychotherapeutic work was at best limited and at worst, useless.

This began a quest: I began to seek out new ways of learning about people and how they can be helped or guided through life’s problems. I had the opportunity to be exposed to and work with key thinkers and theorists in the traditional psychology world that worked within the frame of ‘core-issues’.  Basically, a set of principles that resides at a deeper level of a person and guides their ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. I was very excited by what I discovered in other people’s work with clients. Clients working within this core issue framework would get some true healing within themselves and by extension their choices and their outer world would also improve.

However, I tended to think a bit differently than other therapists and theorists working within the core issue framework and didn’t always agree with how core issues were being defined and worked with. A huge problem for me was also traditional therapeutic methods were still being applied to the core issue model: Interventions were largely the same. In other words, it was a great theory with limited to almost no real-world application.

This began yet another quest: Develop a good and true, well defined understanding of what is at the core of a person; How do we filter information from the environment and how do we decide what to do and what not to do? How can I work within that frame to enable people to make real life changes and get ‘unstuck’? How can I facilitate true transformation and perhaps, most importantly, can I create something that people can use in their daily lives to work with themselves and not become dependent on a therapist or coach?

What resulted was a method that uncovers and resolves the core mental and emotional blocks that are in your way.

Basically, the method resolves and corrects the internal blocks that are in the way of what you want.

Whether you are feeling blocked in your relationships or you are feeling blocked in your professional life and just can’t get to the next level, this method of correction can be applied to all areas of your life to get you to where you want to be.

The results are permanent: The mental and emotional blocks that you reduce and/or resolve do not return.  I actually warn all clients that you cannot go back. When you make changes at a core level, you have made actual change. In other words, you will be different and you will naturally make changes in your life. Sometimes they are quite dramatic; People get divorced, people get married, people sell a business or begin a new one. The change is real so make sure you are ready for what’s next!
