I have been really fortunate to live a very colorful journey. I spent 10 years in technology consulting working as a COO for a firm in Los Angeles. From there I went on to follow my passion of filmmaking and won several awards for my work as a documentary film maker. When I found Dr. Glover's book my own mediocrity in other areas of my life suddenly made sense. The divorce, string of difficult relationships, a seeming inability to move forward. The depression and anxiety. Through the work in No More Mr. Nice Guy and the support of a group of men I trust, I have found some of my true callings, and part of that is coaching and working with other Nice Guys. Many of my clients are creatives who are "stuck" but I also work with individuals around recovery and addiction. I am also an athletic trainer and truly believe in combining the mind/body connection to recovery. I offer in office and remote coaching.

Email León Chiprout
After having a very successful career as a director of photography León decided to devote his life to offer what he’s been practicing on himself for the last twenty years on the personal development arena.
León is a Zen Buddhist that have been trained by few of the most influential Zen teachers of the modern times like Jeff Shore in Kyoto and Norman Fisher.
Leon is a certified “No More Mr. Nice guy” coach, and a Human givens approach therapist.
His approach for the “No more more nice guy" groups includes Zen meditation practice, breathwork and some of the human givens psychotherapy techniques as needed for anxiety and depression management.
León is strong believer that the only way to develop as a human being is to approach the different areas of the human complex (mind, body, spirit) from different angles at the same time all the time. As his Zen teacher Jeff Shore states: for the big disease of the mind we need a strong medicine, psychotherapy eases a bad dream Zen erases that dream.
He has a firm conviction that pop spirituality and pop personal development techniques in the majority of cases can exacerbate the delusive tendencies of the mind and strenthen the self-identification with our limiting belief’s and preconceived false ideas. That’s why the concept of “working on all the dimensions of the human being at the same time all the time” is essential to his practice.

Tim's crusade of the masculine accelerated after receiving a tantric bodywork session in The Netherlands in 2015 while abroad working as an Oil and Gas expat. The emotional release and spiritual realization was so profound he immediately joined The New Tantra school attending The Hardcore Men's retreat, and receiving certification for tantric bodywork. "This practice has cracked me wide open putting me face to face with my fears, limiting beliefs, and taught me how to love myself. It has reinvigorated my marriage and relationships with my children. I continue to find purpose in supporting others through masculine practise, sexual coaching, and bodywork.”.
As a football player growing up he felt a missing link in his personal development, it has been through deep tantric practice and NMMNG teachings that he has truly been able to step into his power and create a new form of comradery in his life and provides these transforming imprints within the brotherhood.
Tim believes men are in their deepest truth when following their life's purpose; this state of flow allows us to stand in our strong masculine presence.
Tim provides support through ongoing NMMNG groups, 1 on 1 coaching (Skype available), High Test. Men's Retreats, and physical bodywork release.

Does this thought pattern describe you (or a man you know)?
** If I am a good guy, then everyone will love me and like me (and people I desire will desire me).
** If I meet other people’s needs without them having to ask, then they will meet my needs without me having to ask.
** If I do everything right, then I will have a smooth, problem-free life.
Dr. Robert Glover, in his book No More Mr. Nice Guy, identifies these thought patterns as “covert contracts” and notes: “Because most Nice Guys believe they have kept their side of the contract, they often feel helpless and resentful when other people (and the world) don’t keep their side of the contract.”
Ted Riter is trained and certified by Dr. Glover to teach “Nice Guys” how to break this lifelong pattern of unhealthy living and toxic relationships. If you’re ready for your breakthrough (or know a man who is), contact him for one-on-one training (firstname.lastname@example.org) or join his new virtual group that begins in February.
