A new Netflix documentary following the life of a diagnosed psychopath/turned life-coach is being criticised by some viewers for being 'a disturbing advert'.
Titled The Psychopath Life Coach, the documentary follows Taylor's transition from prisoner to millionaire. Watch below:
Combined with a traumatic and abusive childhood, the ex-prisoner was constantly in and out of jail.
And it took one major event to turn his whole life around.
Taylor once nearly killed a man, leaving him in a coma for three days with severe injuries.
“I realised that I couldn’t keep blaming everything and everyone around me for why my life is so difficult, and took a good look at myself for the first time and realised it was time to make changes,” he told the Metro.
The diagnosed psychopath went on to mention his ‘very obsessive and very compulsive’ behaviour traits and after sex and gambling addictions (among others), he’s now addicted to ‘personal development’.
He then went on to explain how using his ‘psychopathic traits’ could be an advantage as a life coach.
The 33-year-old listed how he is ‘logical, ruthless, assertive, not emotional and doesn’t really have a good perception of fear’.
“I guess it’s what perspective you see it from and what end you’re on,” he said.
“But in terms of psychopathy, that’s more of a label that they put on antisocial personality disorders for people who do display the more negative, narcissistic manipulative, pathological, lying [traits].”
Whilst his successful turn-around in life is highlighted in the new documentary, some viewers are complaining that it is 'just an advert' for The Coaching Masters.
"It’s so obvious that the subject of the documentary also produced it."
"If you were considering watching The Psychopath Life Coach on Netflix, let me save you an hour and a half of your life and tell you it's an advert for the guy's company," another viewer tweeted.
"A very long, disturbing advert."
"Is it me or is psychopath life coach a big ad? #netflix #psychopathlifecoach," someone else said.
Others criticised the documentary for promoting a cult.
Lewis insists The Coaching Masters is ‘not actually a cult’ adding: “I’m not bothered if people think it is.”
