It may seem backwards but I think those with an open mind will hear me out.
I believe that people who suffer from "psychological illness" either want to hang on to that illness for a reason (conciously or unconciously) OR they don't have enough control over their reality to understand that they can rid themselves of the "illness"
To me it just seems absolutely stupid to have a client dwell on negative memories or beliefs and expect this to help them! How does labeling someone as "depressed" or "bi-polar" help them? Let's say that I'm depressed and I don't know why, I may go into treatment, get put on Prozac and $100,000 and 3 years later learn that I was beat up by my family as a child and I'd repressed it. This is only going to send me deeper into depression! Now I'm poor, old and depressed!
Treatment like this rely on one simple and incredibly stupid idea, that understanding creates a solution. That's like being on a sinking ship and after $100,000 and 3 years learning that there's a hole in the hull.
Why not just treat the client by instantly patching up the hole, or showing them how they can patch their own. That's effective NLP coaching!
To those highly offended by this or idiots who like suing people I'd like to point out that I'm not a medical doctor and I'm not advising you to do anything.
But to those who want to rid themselves of 'Illness' and dive into life without the excuses for their successes or failures then I'd recommend researching some of Richard Bandler's ideas and products.
P.S. I have a close family member diagnosed with schizophrenia on medication and I'm in the process of showing them the different options that are there for them. ~LJ
It is all mind. The key is finding and becoming aware of what angle to attack.
If one knows the enemy, and can see the enemy, is it not left to a matter of learning about you enemy 100%, then destroying it 100%?
To utilize a medication to destroy a force for you is no different than putting in a new transmission for a car that's 275,000 miles in, and falling apart at ALL angles.
...except the individual is much simpler to repair than a car.
Psychological disorders are real; the pundit methods for "repressing" the problem arent.
Become aware, and attack the force within. The victor is you; just become the victor.
