Cults: People join cults because they're looking for love and acceptance. They want answers to the personal problems in their lives. The give their lives and their bodies over to a group that defines reality for them.
All cult behaviour includes manipulation, lies, an authoritarian mindset, mind control over the group members, a communal and totalistic organization, aggressive proselytizing, systematic programs of indoctrination, and often, but not always, perpetuation in middle-class society
Other people outside the group are the ‘enemy’, are ‘othered’ and to be hated. They are beneath the cult members. They expect others to think like them and they rage when others either cannot or refuse not to.

#narcissists don’t know ‘who’ they are are. They have ‘identity’ problems. That’s why they have to tell you who they are all the time. They will ‘rage’ if you challenge them. The biggest population of narcissists are bosses, CEOS, in television, leadership, activists, influencers
They love to be on camera doing the ‘right’ thing for the children or the animals. But there is another side to them. Be careful. Having boundaries is critical. Covert narcissists are subtle, not obvious. You cannot argue with a narcissist. Their job is to get you to ‘doubt’
your sanity or deny your reality or reality itself. Anyone that causes you to doubt yourself, your reality, your feelings, your thoughts, is NOT a friend. Detox yourself. #psychology #narcissism #arrogance #contempt

The 2021 #Australian Association of Family Therapy #AAFT Conference included a presentation on ‘treating families with Transgender Children’ in the context of family therapy & is a significant departure from ethics, guidelines & the foundational principles of family #therapy
If you are member of the public seeking a family therapist, you have the right to know how they are trained. What follows is their recent training materials. Please share widely. I will be discussing this in my book. Please choose a #therapist wisely. I cannot overstate this
Family therapists in Australia are trained to have an agenda and bias. They are trained to ‘normalise’ and affirm self-ID

👇🏻 Shout-out to those who cancelled me! I’m writing a book Are you a health professional going though ‘cancellation’ for safeguarding children? The field of #psychology is broken & sick. ‘Social death’ & annihilation by colleagues (health professionals) is control & coercion
If you are being canceled 👉🏻 1. We are here for you. You are NOT wrong 2. Find US 3. Regroup & reorganise. 4. You are NOT alone 5. Let GO of fear
6. Remain true to your ethics & values 7. Let ‘them’ go (yes, your psych orgs. are sick) 8. Politics has no place in healthcare
‘Cancellation’ Was A blessing. Staying true to your ethics & morals is (hopefully) why you became a psychologist or healer in the first place. You can’t stay in a sick organisation, without becoming sick yourself. It can’t be fixed from the inside. It will take time

Narcissistic Rage: We are in an epidemic of ‘Narcissism’. Most people are so used to it, they don’t know when it’s happening to them. Males & females can be ‘Narcs’ & the vast majority of my clients had no idea. Most Narcs are ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ & hide under the cover of ‘good’
‘Narcs’ use similar strategies when confronted or in communication. They are often “triggered, respond with rapid speech, do not listen, are very angry, combative & reactive. They work hard On: #1. their ‘image’ #2. Being charming #3.Keeping ‘Secrets’ #4. using people to A.
Do their dirty work B. Smear & lie about you, turn your family members, friends colleagues & peers against you. They love to pit others against each other. 5: they rarely, if ever, apologise, often make excuses for their bad behaviours, gossip & are highly divisive & controlling

Thread on #GNC & identity in #autism #Aspergers #adhd from @AspienWoman @AspiengirlVIP the assessment & diagnosis or self-diagnosis is full of dangers inherent in the vulnerability of many autistic female experiences, as they discover their authentic GNC selves/identity
From early on they don’t fit in, feel ‘different’, ‘alien’, ‘wierd’, from their peers. They are intent on following the rules perfectly, often devoid of context, correctly following the rules in black and white ways. They have intense intellectual & philosophical curiosity
About getting it “right”. They ask multiple questions from as early as they can talk. They use their intelligence to use strategies through imitation, echolalia, masking, personas of other people, overthinking, strong emotions perfectionism, social camouflaging, mimicking copying

Did you know you can sue your health professionals on this basis: Standards of Care WPATH (v7, 2012) clause that "role of mental health professionals includes making reasonably sure that gender dysphoria is not secondary to or better accounted for by other diagnoses".
If your health professionals failed to diagnose your Autism, Aspergers, ADHD, trauma, sexual abuse, trauma, family violence, etc., and diagnosed your Gender dysphoria as primary, rather than secondary 👉 HIRE a lawyer, DM me or email me please
Given the emphasis in psychologists education and training on evidence based research methodology and science, argument that were is particularly problematic for psychologists. @austpsych and psychologists will argue its popular opinion to medicalise children. That argument

THREAD Q: 👉 What are the common personalty characteristics or mental heath concerns of parents who bring children to gender dysphoria clinics? A: Some parents have few boundaries w/ little boundaries who are friends or coaches to their children, rather than parents.
They can be enmeshed with their children acting as 'coaches' for their children or even their best friends. They are not parents. Some of them are identified by paediatricians as having Munchausen's-by-proxy, with the benefit accruing to the carer/parent.
Whilst I’m not aware of any studies available in the characteristics of parents, the gender confusion deeply affects most parents. Many children are being driven towards social transition to the opposite sex well before seeking medical assistance. Perhaps Despair causes this

I am in full support of the #perth West Australian hospital #genderclinic being in review. This mess cannot be cleaned up until #safeguarding is recognised #gillick full informed consent takes place, those that raise safety concerns are heard, the #teenagebrain is recognised…
…the evidence based research is interpreted appropriately #detrans voices are heard, therapists stop being #psychoactivists rather than #psychotherapists acknowledgement of differential diagnosis & primary diagnoses are given for those with #genderdysphoria #trans #detrans
I am in support of this just as I was with the @TaviAndPort #GIDS #genderclinic #kierabell legal matter for the reasons of #safeguarding and the reasons of health professionals being #silenced for real and valid concerns. I am in full support of both Finland and Sweden’s..

I am ready to talk about the #silencing of over 25,000 psychologists in Australia with regards to the safeguarding of children. We are threatened, harassed, coerced to provide only one #therapy to children or else! They tried to force me into this I said NO. Any journalists???
I am ready to talk to journalists, lawyers, bloggers and am now writing a book on this topic/issue. I am ashamed of my colleagues and the board who wilfully ignore the immature prefrontal cortex, the autistic brain, and their own ethics and guidelines #rogd #gender #transgender
I have not been able to speak openly about this until now as I have been continually #silenced, harassed, threatened, coerced by other #psychologists #therapists, my board, governing agencies and other professionals. It’s time to reveal what is happening to clinicians worldwide

Australian Judges to now oversee #transgender #teen treatment is a positive step forward and welcomed in order to safeguard children who are unable to give full #gillick #informedconsent theaustralian.com.au/nation/judges-…
Thank you @KLBfax for your #bravery and standing up for vulnerable children who deserve #safeguarding, should have been given full #gillick informed consent and should have had their immature prefrontal cortex, as a consequence of child development, taken into consideration
This decision supports the UK, Finland, and Sweden in an international shift towards caution for #children and safest ethical medical practice. The Australian #gender clinic remains unidentified at the moment

‘Young girls with #autism are more likely to experience a decrease in symptom severity over time compared to boys’? Uhhhh… nope, girls learn how to #mask and #camouflage #autistic mash’s #actuallyautistic #asd #autisticgirls #neurodivergent psypost.org/2021/07/young-…
This is why I’m training professionals what to look for, the questions to ask, social camouflaging, the different subtypes and how 2e gifted kids improve over time.
This is in direct opposition the recent study that #Autism comes out in #adolescence in teen #autisticgirls which is also untrue: spectrumnews.org/news/adolescen… it’s just glaringly obvious in many teens but there are always #redflags autisticwomen #autisticgirls #actuallyautistic #adhd

I am trained in #developmental #psychology and #neuroscince. I have been screaming the #teenagebrain is #underreconstruction from the rooftops! Am totally ashamed of my peers who wilfully ignore this. #neuroplasticity #frontallobes #psychologists #gender #rogd #trans #detrans
The teenage brain is under reconstruction. The prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until minimum aged 25. A bit longer for males. The prefrontal cortex is largely responsible for: decision making, planning, organisation, focusing, impulsivity, aka executive functions
Managing emotions, predicting consequences of one’s choices and moderating social behaviour. This is #science #facts Anyone who says otherwise is brainwashed by #ideology Shame on any professional who ignores this #gender #trans #detrans #shame
