It's sad in my eyes, that the change in mentality at TealEye with Completion Process Practitioners now needing to pay to be displayed on the CP website, thecompletionprocess.com.
Or should I now say 'advertised' on the CP website, since it now costs each CP personally to be shown on there. That's why there's only 36 CPers currently showing. Maybe others feel like me, they are not being supported enough and have decided CP is not for them or it's now too hard doing it alone. Maybe, maybe not.
The CP members' website to promote us used to be free. It was meant to be a place people could get help by lots of CPers. 36 CPCPs doesn't cut it, sorry Teal and Blake.
It used to be promoted at CP training as the hub of trainees and we felt it was going to be supported by the Teal Team. Didn't. Won't.
Where has been any support forthcoming? All that was done was a message or two and no-one has had the time to develop anything for CPers and co-ordinate them. What started out like a great idea has gone nowhere. Maybe that's why we were meant to pay - so they had funds to back CPers?
Anyway, the end result for those on the outside though is more my concern.
There are those out there in need and who are looking for a CPCP to help them, changing the rules and making us pay saying more support will come has resulted in only 36 CP practitioners deciding to be displayed at present - this is out of the 100s that have done the training over the years since Teal started this training, all trainees personally paying the expense of travelling to get trained by Teal and who are willingly out there - people helping people - in some cases out of the goodness of their own hearts without getting session fees, people wanting to help and those wanting help not willing to pay - or unable to pay.
No mind, that's life I guess.
In many cases, Completion Process Practitioners are ordinary people - people who work, people who do other things besides therapy work - or, at least ordinary people who have not turned professional who may not necessarily have other skills to fall back on. Ordinary people, trained as a CP who are not receiving a decent income from being a CP is one of the things those who are not professionals (with a therapy business), decide that they'd still like to be available to help others in need; altruism at work.
Seems no longer; while Blake says they were wanting CPs feedback on the changes, they still went ahead and shut people out of the changed site - and unless a CP signs in again (showing they are willing to pay the monthly fee) they now no longer will show up as a licensed CP on the CP website, thecompletionprocess.com
I am one of those who have decided not to pay - so I won't appear. I decided to also leave the closed CP Practitioners Facebook group. Now I am left to advertise elsewhere - advertise that my services as still available for CP sessions.
As such, I usually give away my services to help others, have always done and will continue to do so - much like it should be in a community where there are those that cannot afford - and others who prefer to spend their money on other things - that needed help.
So I'm still here. In the dark.
The other thing - while I understand self-support is the responsibility of each individual - the Teal Team have huge problems to resolve with the public Facebook group; Teal Tribe. Yes a good idea but facing extreme hostility by infiltrators causing real people in need of support nothing but anxiety and feelings of unsafety.
In my eyes and some others - the Teal Tribe Forum we could utilise when signed up on Teal Swan, was the perfect place for more private conversations and topics. But that has disappeared, the Forum been taken off for some time now.
So, where are Teal supporters meant to go to communicate and feel like a family?
The world is unsafe enough for some people, without these dynamics happening. It's sad, but life I guess. Moving on...
