The innocent failure of psychology

Psychology produced scores of theories and thousands of studies in its attempt to better understand how we all work psychology, and improve our mental health.  Why then, with all of psychology's theories and studies, has there not been a significant improvement in our mental health? If psychology was on the right track, our mental health today should be better than ever... but statistics and experience tells us otherwise (https://www.beyondblue.org.au/media/statistics).  On average, we are physically healthier today and live longer, yet, its hard to make a case that our mental health is following the same path. Even our mental health professionals suffer from high levels of stress and "burn-out".  It seems that all psychology's theories and studies have failed to lead us to improved mental health.  I think psychology has done the best it can considering it hasn't realised the principles that explain how we all work psychologically. If you don't understand how something works - how can you get it to work better?

If the mental health experts don't understand the principles that explain our psychological lives, then most of us trusting them won't understand how our psychological lives are created, and spend our time lost in a maze of confusing, misguided ideas about who we are, how we work and where mental health comes from.  We innocently look for it in the wrong places, places that psychology tells us are "related" to this, but innocently points us in the wrong direction.  Missing today is the understanding of the principles that underpins it all.

The good news is that these principles are here, uncovered and available for us all.  These three principles explain how we all work psychologically. My focus is on sharing and exploring together with you these principles and using this as a basis to coach you and others back to mental health and well-being, or help you transform your live and get more out of it.


The word ‘principle’ refers to the basic, fundamental element of something that determines its intrinsic nature or characteristic behavior.


When it comes to the human experience, we can understand the foundational elements that makes up our experience in the form of three universal principles:  Mind, Consciousness and Thought.


While those words mean different things to different people, the principles they point to have been observed and studied in science, philosophy, and religion throughout the ages. They are basic facts of life – formless, foundational elements which can be observed only through their implications on us and our experience.

The Principle of Mind


There is an intelligence and energy in us and in life.

The Principle of Consciousness

The capacity to be aware and experience life is innate in us all and our level of awareness in a moment determines the quality of our experience.

The Principle of Thought


We create our individual experience of reality through thought. Thought is the missing link between the formless world of pure potentiality and the physical world of form.

So what does this mean for us?

Our experience of life is created from the inside-out, 100% of the time, no exceptions.  It means that you life in the experience of the principle of though in the moment. 


Who you are, are the source of well-being, clarity, wisdom, peace, love, happiness and joy. We are all born with a sense of our true nature which is full of peace, clarity and wisdom but we simply get caught up and derailed by our own thinking. I share a profound yet simple understanding that helps people see how life really works and what it is to be human. Knowing this simple understanding really shifts your experience of life.


You become more peaceful, have a deeper understanding , habits drop away and as you reconnect to your true nature you become more resilient and have the ability to face whatever comes your way.


When we coach, you will shift from who you know yourself to be, and the whole world will begin to respond with you. I know this for sure because I have experienced this transformational process myself. You change from the inside out, and your life will begin to change as a result of that.
