Recently I had the opportunity to speak with Ty Hicks. Some of you may have heard of this brilliant, young man, if not here is a little background. Ty Hicks is a Life Coach and Inspirational speaker. Mr. Hicks is the Founder and CEO of Mental Health Coaching International.
I have been watching Mr. Hicks’ video on Instagram and Facebook. Mr. Hicks claims that you can be depression free and anxiety free in just sixty days This claim sounded outrageous to me…. Then I took the time to have a listen. I was blown away.
Like myself, Mr. Hicks feels medications and traditional therapies give inconsistent results. Oftentimes, the actual root of the depression or anxiety gets overlooked. I have stated many times, I personally feel doctors are more readily to prescribe medications than listen to their patients. Therapist interject their own viewpoints or set their own venue.
A few years ago, I had a rare chance to read the patient notes my therapist had on me. The misinformation, the totally lack of listening and reporting what I had actually said, amazed me. It also angered me. It was no wonder I was finding no lasting help or resolution of my problems.
Part of the problem is most Psychologist and Psychiatrist are jam booked or overbooked. Some have taken “In the Meantime” jobs. These are the ones giving community service to pay off student loans. Once the loan is paid or their service is up, they walk away leaving their patients hanging until the next one takes their place. I had one of these individuals, who had seen me once, make a judgement call that at the time limited my career choices. This person did not know, did not know what I was capable of and frankly had no business defining any part of my life. Today, I have proven not only can I do that job, I am considered the best at it.
The biggest problem with tradition therapies is the “Victim Mentality” so the client keeps coming back. It also the main reason I firmly support Client Lead Therapies. This puts the client in the driver’s seat. Moreover, it is your therapy, you should have a say. You should have the right to just choose another doctor if the one you have is not meeting your needs. What I liked about Mr. Hicks’ Videos is the formula is a sound one. I asked Mr. Hicks when I spoke with him if he came up with these concepts himself. He played a part, but he had other professionals helping him. Mr. Hicks was kind enough to offer to write something for The Purple Rose’s reader. So, tell us what you would like help with. Kelly
