AGAPETHERAPY means “Healing through the love of God.”

Agapetherapy is a privileged time to review our life in the light of Christ and to allow His love to heal our old wounds. Leaning close to us, He wants to tell us that He loves us as we are and that He understands the inner dramas from which he wants to deliver us.

Unique in its experience of release, Agapetherapy examines all of the important stages of our life to help us discover where a lack of love is at the origin of our current difficulties.

Over the years, this journey has revealed that wounds can be far reaching, as far as from heredity itself. Most often, the traumas that have marked ancestors are transmitted from one generation to the other and continue to affect us today.

During Agapetherapy, we are invited to lay our suffering in the heart of God by forgiving those who have wounded us, often without trying to or knowing that they have done so. We thus allow Him to fill our need for love, to free us from our bitter memories and to arouse us into a renewed life.

Agapetherapy rests in God’s eternity where all things are constantly present. This God of love can, in His eternal presence, correct, repair and heal today everything that has been damaged in us in the past.

The three components of Agapetherapy
  • The identification of root causes of our current difficulties
  • The forgiveness of those who are responsible for our wounds and trauma
  • The healing prayer

A combined approach : education in groups…

The education outlines the different stages of human development and the possible consequences of rejection and emotional deprivation experienced during specific moments in this development. The aim is to identify the origins of our current difficulties, and of our inadequate attitudes and behaviors,in order to allow the Lord to apply the balm of His healing.

… and individual guidance

A guide, thoroughly trained, customizes each person’s journey to enable them to feel unconditionally accepted and to ensure they can entrust themselves to another with respect and discretion, whatever the errors or wounds disclosed. This individual guidance also allows those who do not have the faith or who do not know how to pray to lean on the prayer of their guide.

Agapetherapy is for
  • Any person who wishes to live a rewarding experience of greater wellness, of release in order to experience human, moral, psychological or spiritual growth;
  • Any person wishing to be healed from trauma, obsessions, addictions, compulsive behaviors related to alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex and food, etc.;
  • Any person who does not feel they have a happy life and who have tried other approaches without significant improvement;
  • Any person who may have turned to the occult, New Age and the paranormal to be healed and who have emerged from these approaches with additional turmoil.

This intensive method of release is not recommended for people suffering from severe psychological disorders. It is therefore appropriate for each person registering to provide precise information on their state of health to avoid regrettable failures.

The fruits of Agapetherapy
  • Individuals regain their love of life
  • Suicidal tendencies disappear
  • Various addictions are healed
  • Fears and anxieties are released
  • Couples in difficulty regain the love they felt for one another in their early days, etc
  • Many experience the presence of the Lord acting in their lives
