Almost everyone had a negative experience during their school time. Children often want to impress and do things right. The disappointment of poor performance, being reprimanded, or even being shamed can cause our subconscious mind to “shut off“ in order to protect us from a traumatic experience. This is then experienced as a “black-out“ or lack of concentration when actually it is a protective function of the subconscious mind.
Psych-K helps us identify and solve such experiences and blockages. This makes learning without fear and to our potential possible.
A mother whose child had learning difficulties brought her child to me in my practice. A scenario that is quite typical for school children arose. The daughter has always liked and had been good at math but seemed to having increasingly difficulty in that subject. The girl was completely blocked and needed more and more support from her parents for the simplest assignments that she used to handle on her own with ease. The mother couldn’t understand her daughter’s difficulties.
In conversation with the girl, she revealed that her new math teacher, although very competent in his field, was also very strict. The students felt his behavior to be harsh, unfair and incomprehensible. The teacher's behavior was intimidating and incalculable to the girl. The manner in which he handled errors on the blackboard intimidated and scared her.
The teacher was unable to encourage and motivate the students and questioned their abilities constantly. With the Psych-K testing method, we are able to confirm the link between her learning difficulties with her perception of the teacher. The sensitive girl increasingly withdrew and questioned her own abilities and achievements.
With Psych-K Balances, we were able to substitute her limiting beliefs (I am stupid, I don’t get it, I don’t understand math etc.) and replace them with positive self-affirming ones. The girl was able to participate freely in class and able to perform to her abilities again. The parents were then able to take appropriate action with regard to the teacher.
