Just wanted to deeply and sincerely thank you for your time in our sessions. There are no words I can use to adequately describe the benefits I have realised from our sessions. This last session we held was amazing and I felt a significant amount of change in myself, suffice to say your techniques and methodology are very effective and I feel better and at peace more than ever in my life.

“G’day Tony, I was thinking about you the other day, and the positive impact you have had on my life, of which I am very grateful for.
I am going well, I have dropped 17kilos so far this year, I cleaned up my diet and training the house down, amazing how much my life is improving because of it.
I got a promotion at work which has been awesome, and motivated me up a few gears.
I haven’t quite kicked the punt yet unfortunately, but I am trying hard but is a work in progress and I know I have almost solved it. Grief is still with me. I want to finish what we started.
At the rate I’m going with training I reckon you won’t recognise me by then. Hope you are well”.

Its two months since we finished our work. “My life has been so different… for a while, I was afraid it would plummet. But its been positive, and realistic. I’ve never been better in my whole life. Never been happier, never treated myself with such respect. I’m living, I’ve said yes to so many things… experiencing new things…”

I like your energy and approach and felt you were an ideal style of practitioner for me. Thank you for your help.

“He (Tony) really spoke to me in a way that felt like my journey was going to be doable, and I really feel empowered after our (first) session.”

I just wanted to send you a thank you message! I have been feeling better than I have in years, recently. Not gonna lie I think the antidepressants I went on when we first started talked might be the cause but your sessions helped me through a pretty bad time. I had a big talk to my mum about things that happened in the past and invited her to visit me in Australia and also finally felt able to speak to my partner about how my anxiety drove me a little nuts. Will keep your details saved for any future worries.
Again Thank you!

Therapy with Men’s Mental Health (MMH) has done more for me in the 8 sessions over the last 9 months than any therapist, therapy or inpatient treatment I’ve had. Frankly, every other treatment probably totals hundreds of hours and tens of thousands of dollars.
The main component of the treatment was hypnosis (The Richards Trauma Process – TRTP). I went into it with a modest degree of skepticism. Sure it has scientific evidence but I wasn’t going to be receptive to it. Well I hadn’t responded to any other treatment, but I was wrong this time. The initial experience was almost euphoric, and this persisted for days.
Afterwards I started to believe it would only be temporary, and life would return to the battle of staving off suicide or falling back into addiction, with a sprinkle of self destruction and self-loathing.
But two months after the second session I started to look at what had changed. Remarkably the list of things that I hated about myself – I couldn’t see some of them anymore, and others were still there but bothered me less.
Six months after that, I guess for the first time since getting sober (6 years before) I had improved. I had paid off debt, I had established boundaries that weren’t walls in my relationship and more importantly I forgave or gave up on resentment that I had held for nigh on 20 years.
It’s hard for me to articulate this to you, but the changes weren’t conscious. I felt in a way that the pattern of my toxic thinking had started to take effort, and now I have the ability to let them go. This wasn’t overnight but after six months – well I am confident I am still making progress.
To summarise: I was a junkie from 16 till 22, seizures and dishonesty became second nature. Getting sober seemed easier than being content. MMH helped me achieve contentment.
If I had any advice it’s that this technique is confronting to engage with, you know what’s happening, what you are saying and seeing. But more bizarrely, that doesn’t change it’s effect. I can say it changed the course of my life and I no longer smile with malice, I have learnt to smile with joy.

“The Richards Trauma Process gave me a sense of the truth of who I am. It showed me my strength, my courage, my tenacity – my own goodness, love, intelligence and compassion. It helped me to finally heal from the pain and fear I had experienced as a younger person. I was no longer stuck in a cycle of fear, and of being alone and isolated. I was strong enough not just to leave (the cult), but to create a new life that I love, helping others.”

Hi Tony, I just thought I would touch base with you as it has been a fair while since we had a session. I am doing really well, and have not had any problems with my mental health for months now. I bought myself a puppy just over a week ago and that has been a very good move in regards to my mental health issues, I am looking at getting him certified as a Service Dog. If I feel the need to have a chat to you in the coming months then I will make an appointment, I hope that you and your family are well and will be in contact in the future.

So a quick recap. Things are really good. I have stopped gambling and have a savings account.
I have told my son and daughter-in-law that I am moving out when the lease expires. They took it well, thank goodness. I have started buying things for my new place, so its very exciting. We had a family lunch last Sunday for my sister and son’s birthday, and everyone commented what a great lunch it was.
So thank you again for all your help and guidance. It really has changed my life, and I am forever grateful.

When I first visited mensmentalhealth in August 2017, I was a train wreck waiting to happen.
My first session opened my eyes. We started getting me back to “me” and the ‘no bullshit’, caring approach really helped.
My last session saw me start to regain the person I once was, and with added confidence. To check for sustainability, we went over all the things that had changed 3 months later.
- my career jumping forward. I have much more clarity over my career now – who knew I actually loved what I do (Personal Assistant)
- my confidence has returned – I’m standing up for myself, having difficult conversations when needed. I’m questioning more – solving problems.
- feeling at peace with not always having the answers.
- I can look at myself, and step away from the crap. I’m excited about learning who I am, and not looking for who I am in everyone else.
The work we did included The Richards Trauma Process (TRTP). I feel like I’ve grown so much, just over the course of three months.
