This comment that has just been received it’s worth posting. It mentions auditor’s code violations and very bizarre behavior by Aida Thomas. Very interesting reading.
“Out Tech Alert: Aida Thomas
Recently Aida went to Durham in the UK to audit two people, a mother and daughter. After she left I recieved 2 mails from the mother detailing her upsets with Aida.
Aida once told me that she starts all clients with ethics handlings. It looks to me that Aida has some big misunderstandings with ethics although she considers
herself an expert. Aida also seems paranoid about doing interviews with people to then have them go to other auditors. This may be becuase of screwy ethics actions. ……
There were very serious auditors code breaks, and I will just mention a few. I believe there were probably many others. Aida said to the daughter that she likes to say things out of session to people so as to restimulate more things to handle in session.
That isn’t scientology.
Bear in mind Aida was living in their house. In the end the mother was so enturbulated by Diana that she couldn’t sleep. Diana then assigns her an ethics condition to handle not sleeping! At one point Diana says the C/S has told her not to talk to the mother out of session, I believe the daughter told me this and heard that the C/Ses name was Julia. Aida told me her husband was the C/S. I wonder if there was in fact a C/S.
Finally the husband one night seeing the distress of his wife said that it would be best if the daughter and Aida go to sleep at the daughters so that the mother could get some sleep. He drove Diana and the daughter there which is only a 4 minute walk away.
He said he’d come back in the morning to let Aida know if the mother was sessionable.
The mother in fact then decided she no longer wanted to carry on with Aida.
That night Aida tore out many pages from the mothers PC folder and told the daughter she didn’t want to carry the folders around europe, and she was leaving the important ones in.She told the daughter that her mother was mentally ill and suppressive.
At one point the daughter tells Aida in session about a two year relationship that ended badly. At the end of the session after cans were put down Aida tells the daughter she was a loose woman because she had a relationship outside of Marriage. They then go down to the kitchen and Aida tells the mother that her daughter is a loose woman. Niether were happy about this, and Aida also forces or persuades the daughter to address this in an ethics handling.
At one point the mother tells of a past indiscretion. After session they go down to the kitchen where the daughter is and Aida refers the daughter indirectly to this incident. The mother was not happy about this.
Another time Aida discusses her mothers case with the daughter with the mother in earshot. The mother was not happy about this! See mail from daughter on this. Aida told me it was the daughter asking Aida about her mothers case. In fact Aida was asking the daughter about the mother and husbands sex life!
The whole period appears to be a traumatic incident to the mother. She occasionally commented when speaking to me that she was trying to block the memories out.
Diana gave only one session addressing the daughters wants in 3 or 4 weeks. Saying she found it difficult to access the case. This seems extrordinary to me as the daughter sits in the middle of her ruin everyday. She has irrital bowel syndrome and because of this has near constant diahrea and can’t get sufficient nutrients in her body and is very thin. This also makes it difficult to go out places, and panic attacks are all connected with this. Diana seems to have found it a priority to do $1500 of ethics handlings and word clearing.
The husband and a friend of his were also interested in getting some auditing, but now the husband dosn’t want anything to do with scientology.
