So you are considering Kinesiology and you are considering me. And you want to get a feel of exactly who is Liesl Frank? Why should I trust her with my healing journey? So I will share with you who I am and what I have gone through and why I love Kinesiology so much.
I was born in Sydney and grew up in the country. Firstly, in a small village (pop. 200) for my primary school years and then for my high school years, I lived in a rural country town (pop. 16,000) and during that time I lived in Thailand for a year on exchange. During my 12 years of schooling (excluding Thailand) I was bullied and ostracised for ten of them. How did this affect me? I had zero self-esteem, zero confidence, I felt completely unaccepted and believed that no one would want to be friends with me. I hid it all behind a “bright smile” like I had been taught to. The excellent advice of the 70’s and 80’s (not) – “just pretend like it isn’t affecting you”
And I continued to suffer
I have memory of “a moment in time” that has always stuck with me. It was in 1995 and I was sitting in my lounge room with my two flatmates. And I remember thinking to myself that I wish that you could just ask your friends for recommendations for a good psychiatrist like you would a hairdresser or a car mechanic. But because I was too embarrassed back then to share my problems with my friends, I continued to suffer in silence for another eight years.
