It is a known fact that almost half of the population in Australia suffer from mental disorder at some stage of their life. This percentage keeps growing. Worse than that – more than a third of our young people go through an episode of mental illness before the age of 25. Many of these people are not aware of their mental condition and 80% of those with mental disorder do not seek counsel to improve their condition, or give up very quickly, thus affecting not only their lives, but also those around them. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) 8 people a day commit suicide in this country. Recently, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these numbers have gone up together with family violence and child abuse, that contributes to people’s mental problems. We, as a community and individuals, cannot accept this.
Most of these mental disorder cases are caused by traumas, such as child abuse, family violence and assaults. The consequences are nightmares, suicidal moods, depression and underachievement because of mind distraction, distorted relationships and poor social life. People who suffer from depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder are wasting their lives and abilities and cannot fulfil themselves.
What can be done about it?
What we need is easy-to-follow processes that can actually help people to treat themselves. They must be fast and effective, so that one can do so themselves and must eliminate the disorder for good (not just helping them to cope).
The method of “Back on Track Coaching” is a result of 20 years of researching these mental issues, and has so far had a very high rate of success. It is based on visualization – because our sub-conscience, where our memories and traumas are stored and 80% of our decisions are made, understands pictures rather than verbal communication. Thus the therapeutic process becomes quicker and easier, it cuts down the chatter and reduces the number of sessions needed, as it gets more quickly to the source of the problems and brings it up to the surface. It also makes the treatment less expensive, since our first priority is to achieve results for our clients.
