Did you know...

For those using TRADITIONAL APPROACHES to sex addiction recovery alone such as counseling, 12-step groups, rehab clinics, weekend intensives, etc., ...

Only 2-3% achieve long-term sexual sobriety

70-80% drop out in the first 3-6 months


a bold new approach is here!

Mentoring is a proven new solution  that's producing amazing results & restoring hope to strugglers and their partners worldwide. 

After conducting a non-scientific, 5-year proof-of-concept where I mentored 100 sexually addicted men 1-on-1 and in groups, the results were amazing:

50% achieve long-term sexual sobriety

Only 10% dropped out in the first 3-6 months


One of my goals when starting this proof-of-concept was to see if a one-person mentoring ministry could succeed and be self-supporting over time. That's why I started it as a for-profit ministry and only used non-profit funding when it was offered in the form of a mentoring scholarship or matching grant.

My results here are published for all to see in the table above. Please understand I'm not doing this to boast. I know that each and every person I mentored, and every dollar they invested, was the result of God allowing it. Instead, I'm proud of the fact that I've proven this model works, first as a successful new approach to recovery, and secondly as a reliable source of income!

Whether your financial goal is to start out mentoring part-time (like I did) and just keep it that way to generate some supplemental income, or you want to grow your mentoring ministry into a career changing full-time occupation (again, like I ended up doing), this ministry model is proven and it works!


NOTE: In case you're wondering, the reason you see the decline in # of mentees and income after year 3 is because I started purposefully cutting back on the amount of time I spent mentoring men so I could shift more of my focus to further developing this mentor training program. Creating a ministry model that's replicable has always been a part of my vision for BraveHearts.

DISCLAIMER: Even though these were the results I experienced personally, I just want to remind you that I'm not guaranteeing you'll experience the same results. There are a lot of variables involved, not the least of which is the amount of effort you put into building your mentoring ministry. I'm just sharing this info to show you that it's possible to generate this kind of income and more. 

Meet Your Mentors

Meet Michael & Christine Leahy, Co-CEO's of BraveHearts

Hi, I'm Michael Leahy. I discovered pornography when I was 11 and struggled with it for most of my life. But after hitting rock bottom 20 years ago, I started getting serious about getting well. Since then, I've been free from my addiction and living a redemptive life helping others find their pathway to freedom. 

We invite you to join our growing army by becoming a BraveHearts Certified Professional Mentor.


For 5 years, I conducted my own "proof of concept" by taking a mentoring-centric approach to recovery. That is, I've been meeting with sexually addicted men 1-on-1 and in small groups, guiding them in their recovery.

I spent over 5,000 hours mentoring 100 men. Over half of them achieved long-term sexual sobriety!

Like a sherpa guide leading a group of climbers up through treacherous mountains they've never climbed before, I instructed these men to just "clip onto my rope" and follow me. I guided them as God guided me, helping them navigate their way through a process I now call sexual integrity discipleship™.

Drawing off of my own 15+ years of sexual addiction recovery experience, not to mention the 30 years I spent in a growing relationship with pornography and sexual sin, my "mentees" - addicted or not - trust my judgement as I lead them and model sexual integrity, wise decision-making, and healthy intimacy in relationships.

do you have a redemption story?

We're looking for a few good men & women who want to use their story for God's glory.


Maintain healthy habits of sexual integrity

Sexual addiction is considered the most difficult of all the addictions to break free from. If you've been through recovery from sexual addiction and are living in freedom, there's a whole world of struggling people out there looking for help and searching for hope. We'd like to help you give them gift of freedom. But if you're not quite there yet, that's OK. We can help you find that freedom. Join BraveHearts as a mentee and let us help you find the life God meant for you. 

Make A THOUGHTFUL choice to become a mentor

Choosing to mentor others in this area of need can be one of the most rewarding decisions you'll ever make. But don't take it lightly. Make sure you're ready, and that you have the support of your spouse and loved ones. You don't have to splash your redemption story on billboards or share it from the pulpit to promote your ministry or find people to mentor. But be sensitive to the fact that your story probably also involves your spouse, your family, friends and loved ones.  

Get the proper training, develop a ministry plan

Whether you're already in ministry and just looking to expand your skill set to include mentoring, or you'd like to mentor men on a part-time basis while you keep your day job, or you're looking to make a career change and considering becoming a mentor full-time, you need to get the proper training and have a plan. We can train and equip you to help you develop and build your own mentoring ministry and start achieving your goals.
