I’ve had personal growth “teachers” just like this before and finally came to my senses about just how abusive this kind of behavior truly is. These people are narcissists masquerading under the guise of helpers. A truly loving teacher will teach you how to learn to trust and believe in yourself and not them. Narcissists just want to build their empire and stroke their own egos by pretending to know what’s best for you so that you will defer to them and let them control you. Run far and run fast away from anyone who claims to know you better than you know yourself.
