WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN SOMEONE IS CALLED A FALSE PERSON?

When someone is called “false”, it means that they are perceived, by the person(s) calling them false, as being deceitful, insincere, or dishonest in their words, actions or intentions. Being labeled as “false” suggests that the individual is not genuine, trustworthy, or authentic in their interactions with others. The term “false” can carry negative connotations and imply that the person is intentionally misleading, concealing the truth, or presenting a façade that does not align with their true self.

Being called “false” may indicate that the person is seen as;

  1. Deceitful: Someone who is described as false may engage in deceptive or manipulative behaviour, such as lying, misleading others, or withholding important information to achieve their own goals or for them to take advantage of.

     

  2. Insincere: The term “false” can also suggest that the person lacks sincerity, genuineness, or authenticity in their communication and relationships. They may come across as disingenuous or fake in their interactions with others.

     

  3. Hypocritical: Being labelled as false may imply that the individual is hypocritical, saying one thing and doing another, or presenting a false image of themselves that contradicts their true beliefs or values.

     

  4. Untrustworthy: The term “false” can indicate that the person is not reliable, dependable, or trustworthy in their words and actions. Others may feel hesitant to trust or confide in someone who is perceived as false.

 

It's important to consider the context in which someone is called “false” and to communicate openly and directly if there are concerns about a person's behaviour or intentions. Addressing misunderstandings, clarifying intentions, and fostering honest and transparent communication can help prevent misinterpretations and misunderstandings that may lead to negative labels such as “false”. It is also essential to approach interpersonal conflicts or disagreements with empathy, understanding, and willingness to resolve differences in a constructive and respectful manner.

WHAT IS A SOMATIC THERAPIST?

A Somatic Therapist is a type of therapist who focuses on the mind-body connection and the impact of physical sensations, emotions, and experiences on overall well-being.

Somatic therapists work with clients to help them become more aware of their bodily sentations, emotions, and patterns of movement. This form of therapy often involves techniques such as mindfulness, body awareness, breathwork, movement exercises, and touch therapy to ehlp clients explore and release stored emotions and tension in the body.

Somatic therapy can be helpful for individuals who have experienced trauma, chronic stress, anxiety, fatigue or physical tension. By addressing the body's responses to stress and trauma, somatic therapy aims to promote healing, increase self-awareness, decrease muscle tension and headaches, decrease teeth grinding at nigh, lowers anxiety levels and heart rate related to the fight-flight-freeze body response, promote deep, restful sleep and increase self esteem.

IT IS COMMON FOR THERAPISTS TO FEAR THEIR CLIENTS?

Therapists, like any human beings, can experience a range of emotions, including fear. However, it's important to note that fear is not a common or typical emotions that therapists have towards their clients. In fact, therapists are trained to provide a safe and non judgmental environment for their clients, where they can explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences without fear of being judged or harmed.

Therapists undergo extensive training, including education and supervised clinical experiences, to develop the skills necessary to effectively help their clients. They are trained to maintain professional boundaries, manage their own emotions, and create a therapeutic alliance based on trust and confidentiality.

While therapists may encounter challenging, difficult and manipulative clients and situations, they are more likely to experience empathy, compassion or concern rather than fear. Therapists are trained to work with a variety of issues and are generally equipped to handle difficult emotions, crises, or potentially volatile situations.

It's worth noting that if a therapist ever feels fearful or unsafe due to a client's behaviour, they are ethically obligated to take appropriate steps to ensure their safety and the safety of the client. This may involve seeking consultation or supervision, implementing safety protocols, or, in extreme cases, terminating the therapeutic relationship.

Overall, therapists are primarily focused on providing support, guidance, and healing to their clients, and fear is not a typical or prevalent emotion they experience towards their clients.

WHAT IS HOLISTIC HEALING?

Holistic healing, also known as holistic health or holistic medicine or alternative healing or complementary medicine or spiritual medicine, is an approach to healing that considers the whole person – body, mind, spirit and emotions – in the quest for optimal health and wellness. It emphasizes the interconnectedness of all aspects of an individual's well-being and focuses on treating the person as a whole, rather than just addressing specific symptoms or conditions which is a large part of modern alohpathik medicine.

Key principles of holistic healing include:

1. Focuses on the whole person: Holistic healing takes into account all aspects of a person's life, including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions. It recognizes that all of these aspects are interconnected and influence each other.

2. Individualized care: Holistic healing recognizes that each person is unique and may require personalized treatment plans that address their specific needs, preferences, and goals.

3. Mind-body-spirit connection: Holistic healing acknowledges the connection between the mind, the body and the spirit and aims to promote balance and harmony among these aspects to support overall health and well-being.

4. Prevention and wellness: Holistic healing places a strong emphasis on preventive measures and lifestyle choices that support health and wellness. Holistic healing encourages individuals to take an active role in their own health and make informed decisions about their well-being, including decisions about diet, exercise, lifestyle and sleep.

5. Integrative approaches: Holistic healing often incorporates a variety of complementary and alternative therapies, including Reiki, accupuncture, herbal medicine, massage therapy, yoga, reflexology, meditation and nutritional counseling, in addition to conventional medical treatments.

6. Empowerment and self-care: Holistic healing encourages individuals to take responsibility for their health and well being through self care practices, self awareness, and lifestyle changes that support optimal health.

Overall, holistic healing seeks to address the root causes of illness or imbalances, rather than just treating symptoms, and promotes a sense of wholeness, balance, and vitality in individuals. Holistic healing is a comprehensive and integrative approach to health and wellness that can complement modern medical care and empower individuals to take a proactive role in their own journey.

WHAT IS FALSE ADVERTISING AND WHAT INFORMATION TO LOOK OUT FOR WHEN WANTING TO CONSULT WITH SOMEONE WHO CLAIMS THEY ARE PROFESSIONAL COUNSELORS / DOCTORS AND WANT CLAIM FROM MEDICAL AID / MEDICAL INSURANCE FOR THEIR SERVICES.

 

False advertising refers to the practice of promoting a product or service through deceptive, misleading, or dishonest information. It involves making false or exaggerated claims through creative and manipulative language, about a product or service in order to attract customers or clients or gain a competitive advantage. False advertising can take various forms, including:

  1. Misleading claims: This involves making false or misleading statements about a product or service features, benefits or performance. For example, claiming that a weight loss supplement can help you lose 10 kg in a week without any scientific evidence to support the claim.

     

  2. Other misleading claims: Specifically in South Africa with mental health practitioner / counselors / life coaches / lay counselor who advertise that the client can claim from medical aid when the practitioners are not registered with a statutory body such as SACSSP (South African Council for Social Service Professions) or the HPCSA (Health Professions Council of South Africa). A statutory body is responsible for delivering public and private services, for example, healthcare and mental health.

     

  3. Deceptive pricing: This includes advertising a product or service at a discounted price when the original price was inflated or falsely claiming that a product is on sale when it is not. For example, advertising a product as “50% off” when the regular price was never actually charged.

     

  4. False testimonials: This involves using fake or fabricated testimonials, reviews, or endorsements to promote a product or a service. This would be designed to mislead consumers into believing that the product or service has been positively reviewed by real customers when, in fact, it has not.

     

  5. Bait-and-switch tactics: This involves advertising a product at a low price to attract customers, only to then pressure them into purchasing a higher priced alternative. For example, advertising a low cost vacation package and then telling customers that it is no longer available but offering a more expensive option instead.

     

  6. Unsubstantiated claims 1: This involves making claims about a product's or service effectiveness, safety, or quality without any scientific evidence or proof to back them up. For example, claiming that skincare product can erase wrinkles without any clinical studies to support the claim.

     

  7. Unsubstantiated claim 2: People who offer “therapeutic services” such as counseling, psychotherapy or hypnotherapy / hynosis - who are in South Africa but are not registered with a statutory body such as SACSSP and HPCSA - and claim that their services “may be claimable from medical aid” by the client when it is known that the client will not be refunded by any medical institution because the service provider is not registered with the necessary statuatory bodies. Client's need to be aware that for them to be reimbursed an invoice presented to the client by any medical professional have to show the service providers credentials and their professionals council registration number and their private practice number as well as the relevant ICD10 code and Tariff Code. Without this information on the invoice medical aid or medical insurance worldwide will not pay for the services.

False advertising is illegal in many countries and is regulated by consumer protection laws. Businesses found guilty of false advertising may face fines, legal action, damage to their reputation, and loss of customer trust. Consumers are encouraged to be vigilant and skeptical of advertising claims and to report any instances of false advertising to the appropriate regulatory authorities.

When making contact with health professionals for treatment, it is advisable the consumer ask the following questions:

  1. Are you registered with SACSSP (for social workers who work as counselors / psychotherapists in private practice) or HPCSA (for medical doctors, psychologists or counselors registered with HPCSA).

     

  2. What is your professional registration number?

     

  3. What is your BHF (Board of Health Funders), private practice number?

     

  4. May I claim from medical aid for your services? If yes, request a Tariff code for such services. The medical professional will gladly give you codes to request confirmation for payment of such services from your medical aid or medical insurance.

Please note that ICD10 Codes (International Classification of Diseases Codes) are international codes used to classify diseases, injuries, health encounters, and inpatient procedures which the WHO (World Health Organization) which was developed in 1970. Without these codes, no medical aid or medical insurance will cover the patient for treatment.

IS RESPONSIBILITY A CHARACTER TRAIT OR LEARNED BEHAVIOUR?

Responsibility can be considered both a character trait and a learned behaviour. As a character trait, responsibility is often seen as an inherent quality that some individuals possess naturally. People who are responsible tend to be reliable, accountable, and take ownership of their actions and obligations. They are proactive in fulfilling their duties and commitments without needing external reminders or supervision.

On the other hand, responsibility can also be learned and developed over time through various experiences, teachings, and influences. Children, for example, learn responsibility through parental guidance, school expectations, and social interactions. They are taught the importance of keeping, promises, completing tasks, and taking care of their belongings.

External factors, such as role models, societal norms, and cultural values, can also shape a person's sense of responsibility. Observing responsible behaviour in others and receiving positive reinforcement for responsible actions can reinforce and strengthen this trait.

Ultimately, responsibility is a complex interplay of both innate predispositions and learned behaviours. While some individuals may naturally exhibit a strong sense of responsibility, others may need to cultivate and nurture this through conscious effort and practice. With time and experience, individuals can develop a greater sense of accountability and reliability in their actions and relationships.

...and they BEING SELF EMPLOYED

Is it true that those who are SELF-EMPLOYED charge excessively for their services?

Being self employed means an individual needs to be everything from chief cook to bottle washer, all while maintaining their marketing expertise, honing their HR and accounting skills and all whlie keeping abreast or ahead of the market in the field they are in, as everyone wants to ensure they are getting the best value for their money.

 Self employed individuals have no paid vacation. Self employed means there is no such thing as paid sick, maternity, paternity or grief leave. Self employed only get bonuses or commission for outstanding performance (if they are paid and keep working) and religious holidays are always unpaid. Being self employed means no company paid insurance plans nor do they qualify for unemployment benefits.

Being self employed requires training in order to get the skill set they have which has most likely been caltivated for many years, bearing heavy costs of training and hours of studying and blood, sweat and tears invested in their chosen field of study, to enable them to provide the best service they possibly can. They also continue to invest in further training for themselves to provide cutting-edge services which ultimately, benefits their clients. Remember, self employed are generally working to feed their family, most keep their pricing down as low as possible so even bargain hunters will use their services, and few understand costing so they are more than happy to bend over backwards in order to get and keep clients.

Self employed individuals also need to maintain their set of skills which can be expensive and also needs to be compensated for along with their invested time to prepare for you and / or your family, or whatever service or product it is that they provide that makes your life easier or makes you look great.

When next you ask why someone who is self employed is so expensive, remember that the SELF-EMPLOYED most likely LOVE being their own boss, but that love doesn't pay debts. Paying to live is a real world requirement and while those who are self employed may be self employed by choice, they need to earn a living in order to ensure their family survival all while you benefit from their set of skills and / or services.
