Politics and Therapy
It surely cannot have escaped the attention of conscious westerners that many of
the professionals working in the therapy business seem to have sunk deeper
and deeper into the realms of witchcraft and make-believe over the past
For what seems like an eternity, we, the public, have had to endure
in silence the shrill sounds of
hysterical nonsense emanating from therapists who, it seems, often entertain more
delusions and morbid fantasies than most of their sickest clients.
have had to put up with the recovered-memory hocus-pocus - wherein
therapists claimed that people could be horribly abused for years on end,
undergoing the most serious of torments - including the smashing of their
limbs for sexual purposes - but, apparently, as a result of various mysterious
processes, these people would completely forget about their terrible
decade-long ordeals and
happily prance off into their futures, arm-in-arm with their previous
But, of course, and most fortuitously, these people could be
reminded of their earlier torments with just a few months of hourly

unbeknownst to us, are densely populated with sex-crazed, devil-worshipping paedophiles who

In the decades prior to this lunacy, we were informed by
therapists that schizophrenia was caused by mothers with attitudinal
problems, dyslexia by poor potty-training regimes, and that children were
often dysfunctional because they were persistently being denied the
pleasure of having sex with their own parents.
All these ridiculous notions
have been seriously held by various highly-respected professionals in the
therapy business at one time or another throughout the past century, and
the result has been untold misery caused to millions of people.

as to why people might have psychological difficulties.
It derives from

blame for many of the psychological ills that beset people - particularly

the Duluth Model
of domestic violence has been used very widely by law enforcement agencies
to deal with relationship disputes. Basically, this model assumes
throughout that the man is the perpetrator and the woman is the victim -
regardless of their behaviours or their violence.
But this Duluth Model is as much a work of fantasy and fiction as
is the recovered memory nonsense and the baby-eating paedophile hysteria.
Or, indeed, the Ink Blot test.
I have written many times before about how those in the abuse industry
profit so very well from demonising men (and, increasingly, women) and the
uptake of feminist principles by much of the therapy profession is
a result of this.

therapists if they demonise men.
Quite simply, there is much money to be made by
therapists if they demonise men.
I was, therefore, delighted to see Paul Elam recently decide that it was time to
start taking direct action against groups of mental health professionals
who are touting for business by allying themselves to an ideology -
feminism - that is largely driven by a desire to promote hatred towards
An example of the hundreds of therapists who drew
Paul Elam's ire
by allying themselves to this ideology of hatred, are those who tout for
business on a website called
And to get some idea of just how
prejudicial towards men are those therapists who support this website, it
is worth looking at their
information page and their
Men's information page.
It will not take much more than a cursory glance at these 'information'
pages to see that disseminating feminist ideology, rather than mental
health, is the main concern of ALLABOUTCOUNSELING.
To give you a taste, here, for example, is the first main piece of
'information' for women, ...
How many women in the US are sexually abused? raped? battered?
Millions. And even a greater number of women are attacked verbally,
instilling oppression, fear, anger, and low self-esteem.
And here is the first main piece of 'information' for men. It is, in
fact, an instruction, suggesting that men should monitor closely ...
"how my behavior or the behavior of other males affects women."
(Please take a look at those 'information' pages. You will surely be
And men, in
particular, should be very much aware that what they see going on here is
what is going on throughout the field of mental health.
In other words,
ALLABOUTCOUNSELING is not an aberration.
In essence, what many
professionals in this field are doing is blaming men for their own woes,
and also blaming them for women's woes.
Indeed, it must be obvious to
any prospective female client turning up at the ALLABOUTCOUNSELING
website, that the associated therapists are going to blame the men in
their lives for all their problems.
The 'information' pages make it
quite clear that this will be the case.

Now, therapists mostly do blame
everybody but their own clients for the problems that beset them - for
obvious reasons; perhaps the most obvious being that therapists are not
going to make much of a living by blaming those who pay their fees.
the contrary, the more do they pander to their clients, and the more do they
stroke their egos, the more does the money roll in.
what has happened over the years is that these mental health professionals have simply
latched on to a whole ideology (feminism) that appears to give them some
justification for blaming men for the ills of their clients.
confident of this point of view are they nowadays, that they can more or less state
this to be the case to their prospective clients (via their 'information'
pages) even before they have even met them!
"Your problem is Men!"
Now, given that this therapeutic industry is vast in size, that it is
worth many billions of dollars every year, and that it is highly
influential across society and the law, the fact that it is permeated
throughout with the view that 'men are the problem' causes a great deal of
unhappiness in the lives of men.
It also fuels a great deal of hatred towards men; thereby sanctioning and
promoting the mistreatment of them.
As such, it is quite fitting for someone like Paul Elam to say that he is
no longer prepared to put up with what is, in practice, bogus feminist propaganda
masquerading as therapy, and that he intends to take continually to task
all those therapists who are endorsing it; either to treat their clients, or
to attract them in the first place.
Indeed, it is surely nothing less
than outrageous that therapists are using their professional status to
imbue their clients with pernicious, sexist, political propaganda.
"Your problem is Jews,"
in essence, this propaganda is no less harmful to society and no less
bigoted than would be one that proclaimed that, "Your problem is Jews,"
or, "Your problem is Blacks."
And we should all be fighting against it.
Unfortunately, however, there is nowadays so
much money to be made by therapists who can manage to construct some
convincing notion that someone's mental health problems are caused by
someone else, that it is going to be very difficult to persuade such
therapists to abandon this gravy train.
therapists can form very lucrative deals
For example, hand in glove with the legal
profession, lawyers and therapists can form very lucrative deals by
promoting the view that 'men are the problem'.
The lawyers act out in
outrage at every hint of 'abuse' imaginable in order to pull in the
plaintiffs, and they promote relationship laws which make it almost
impossible for intimates not to break them - or appear to do so - very
often sending clients directly off to therapists who will confirm the
And in the opposite direction, heading into the lawyer's office, travel
the therapists' clients who have been convinced that their unhappiness is
the result of some 'illegal' kind of abuse.
I can still remember the
chill that went through me some 20 years ago when a female murderess on a
woman's TV chat show programme in the UK (who was given no prison term for
killing her husband) admitted that she had felt guilty about the killing,
but that, after therapy, she now realised that she was not to blame AT ALL
because her husband had been abusive.
(I should add that it was
perfectly obvious that she, herself, had often behaved violently towards
her husband; thus proving that she did not fear him.)
Her lawyer was
also on the show. And she explained how this murderess had been diagnosed
with Battered Wife Syndrome - or something similar - which is why the
legal system had exonerated her.
Now, I am not suggesting that something
like BWS does not exist, nor that women who suffer from it might become
most of these
women look nothing like battered wives
But when I have looked at the evidence
presented in cases where women are exonerated for having suffered from
BWS, most of these women look nothing like battered wives, and they seem
to have engaged in serious violence themselves throughout their history
with their now-deceased partners.
In other words, the therapists and the
defending lawyers have colluded with each other to portray these vicious women as
And the very same type of collusion is taking place
when it comes to matters of divorce, child custody, domestic violence, and
The therapists and the lawyers are sending clients to each other,
and maximising their incomes.
"You are an abused woman. The man is the problem. Here is a good
lawyer to help you deal with him."
"You are an abused woman. The man is the problem. Here is a
good therapist who will confirm to the court that your problems are all
And, in essence, these professionals collude with
each other to inflict some kind of hurt (legal, financial or otherwise) on
to men on the grounds that they are responsible for some woman's current
state of disgruntlement.
This industry is now absolutely vast. And it is worth billions of
dollars every year.
(I strongly recommend Professor Stephen
Baskerville's book Taken
Into Custody to see just how profitable is this business between
therapists and lawyers).
This is not about mental health.
This is about politics and money.
I would urge all mental health professionals to think very seriously about
what is going to happen to their profession - and, hence, to their future
prospects - as the public becomes more aware of just how disreputable so
many of their colleagues appear to be.
Thanks to the internet, thousands of men are
beginning to wake up to the way in which many therapists poison their
loved ones against them.
And they are mostly not very
happy about this.
