This course will teach you how you can live free without becoming caught up in the narcissist’s endless mind games.

Here’s how and why I can make you this promise

Hello Friends,

If you’re in a difficult relationship, whether it be personal or in the workplace, does this sound familiar to you: 

The narcissist forgets or begrudges your free will. Everything must be their way. They must be in control. 

This leads to arguments, anger and anxiety. Maybe you feel like you are always on the defensive. 

If this sounds familiar with you then this will be the most important thing you read all year. 

Here’s why …

I’ve developed an exclusive course called Free to Be.

The narcissist wants to control your free will and keep you on their fixed agenda. This course will teach you how you can live free without becoming caught up in the narcissist’s endless mind games. 

My new course teaches you how to break the narcissist’s control so you can live free.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

  • End unproductive, go-nowhere arguments

  • End self-doubt and stop second-guessing your good decisions

  • Become a less-guarded, more relaxed and more authentic person

    Thank You for Completing Free to Be

    • Free to Be Wrap Up


  • What is this course all about?

    The central tension in any strained relationship is the struggle for control. Each person possesses a free will, something a controller either begrudges in others or forgets. This sets up the potential for anger, arguments, defensiveness, rebellion, anxiety, and power grabs. The "Free To Be" course teaches how each person can live with free will leading the way, without becoming ensnared by unhealthy control/counter-control games.

  • Is the course self-paced or do I need to be available for specific times?

    Great question! This course is 100% self-paced so you can access the material on your own time and at your own speed.

  • Who is this course specifically for?

    Adults trying to come to terms with controllers who wish to keep them on a fixed agenda. This could include marriage partners, adult children of controlling parents, siblings, those with an impossible boss, and those inside tightly managed organizations.

  • What can your audience expect inside the course itself? How many modules, lessons, videos, and hours?

    The course consists of six distinct modules, each addressing a particular topic. The modules consist of anywhere from 5-9 lessons. (About 38 in all.) The lessons are presented with a written format and a video accompanying each written lesson. Most video lessons are approximately seven minutes. In total the webinar features almost 5 hours of videos. The central feature of the webinar is the Personal Reflection questions at the end of each video. These questions guide the student toward personalized pragmatic applications drawn from each lesson. It is crucial to understand that the lessons are more than just talking points, but designed for individualized personal introspection.

Dr. Les Carter

Throughout his career as a therapist, Dr. Les Carter’s passion was working one on one with individuals in his counseling office. The son of an Army chaplain, who later worked in prison chaplaincy and mental health specialties, Les Carter had front-row experiences throughout his youth with programs touching the families of those who needed psychological assistance most. It was an easy decision for him to enter the field of psychotherapy when it was time to choose a career. He has a twin brother, Lee, who is a forensic psychologist in Waco, TX. The two brothers spend hours comparing notes and talking shop. In 1976 he completed his B.A. in Psychology at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He then received his master’s degree at the University of North Texas, which was followed by earning a Ph.D. in Clinical Counseling at UNT. Upon completing his Ph. D., he joined the renowned Minirth-Meier Clinic in suburban Dallas, Texas, where he remained for 25 years. There he specialized in anger management, working with older adolescents and adults. Through those years he conducted many Anger Workshops and authored books about anger and other mood disorders. His Anger Workbook sold over 500,000 copies, and in all he authored or co-authored twenty books, with total sales in the millions. Various of those books have been translated into ten foreign languages. Along with the Minirth-Meier team he participated in about 3,000 radio broadcasts, mostly of the call-in talk show variety. In 2005, Dr. Carter co-founded the Southlake Psychiatric and Counseling Center in Southlake, Texas. He continued his counseling there and in his career logged over 65,000 counseling sessions. “I know it may seem strange,” he once explained, “but I prefer taking difficult cases because that’s where we find the highest potential for therapeutic growth.” He has a reputation as compassionate, firm, and uplifting. In 2018, he founded the Surviving Narcissism, which includes the Surviving Narcissism YouTube channel and the Dr. Les Carter YouTube channel (with over 85 million views). His words: “In my history of conducting anger workshops, it became abundantly clear that self absorption, control cravings, and the lack of empathy were at the base of most interpersonal problems. So my therapeutic focus went deeper into the direction of understanding narcissism as a means of finding resolution to mood and relationship strains.” In addition to this website and his YouTube channels, Dr. Carter provides insights about narcissism via his courses, webinars, podcasts, and more. His goal is simple: explain narcissism and its powerful impact upon relationships, then offer alternatives for healthy living.
