I am sorry you are struggling.
At this time frame recovery is beginning. However with mental illness it's much more traumatic.
I'm sorry you are going through such a difficult time.
Did they ask you to fill in a Psychological and Mental Health Form prior to starting?
This was the case in Money and You. It did puzzle me at the time. It was a red flag I overlooked. Studies have shown that people with no mental health issues can still suffer adverse effects from the mind control techniques used.
This still angers me. Due to the fact the people running these courses have no business playing with people's minds.
There are no laws in Australia preventing the use of hypnosis, NLP or psychological techniques, especially when they are not named as such and under the umbrella of "experiential" and "fun games" as it is in Money and You.
This is always the sticking point.
My strong opinion is that these groups using these methods without informing people prior to doing the course are criminals. They know they can get away with it. They have got away with it.
However sooner or later it will be their undoing.
The harm caused by them, unfortunately is up to us to fix, recover and heal. Get support. Get educated so it does not happen to us again.
I am glad you found this forum. Learning from other people's experiences helps to draw parallels with your personal experience.
I wish you well and eventual recovery.
Its my hope the laws will be put in place to prevent further casualties from the unethical methods used by these groups.
They have no conscience and lack integrity. They have no remorse, no empathy and lack responsibility. This is very sad for all the victims.
I hope you can find your peace and resolve one day.
