Liz Champtaloup – Founder, Potent Minds

I believe that each person already has everything they need, but there may be obstacles in the way preventing them from accessing their resources. I work with PSYCH-K®, belonging to the modern classification of Energy Psychology, to assist clients to remove those blocks or limitations and empower their chosen goals.

I was taught by Rob Williams, the originator of PSYCH-K®, and became a Certified PSYCH-K Instructor in 2015.

PSYCH-K and Me

I am a lucky person, I have so much in my life to be grateful for. But we all have a story and something happened to me as a teenager that has shaped a large part of my life and who I am. The good news is that ultimately it brought me to PSYCH-K.

When I was 16 my life was turned upside down when my father died of a heart attack.  The shock and grief rippled through my family and impacted everyone uniquely. My mother’s grief drowned her in clinical depression, so much so that she tried to commit suicide.

There are plenty of people who have much more tragic stories than mine.  Death, by natural causes, came into my life, albeit at a younger age than for most people.  I have great respect for everyone’s story, our story is so unique and personal. What I have also learnt though is that the story itself is actually not nearly as important as the beliefs and patterns that the story lays down in our subconscious mind.

In the chaos that unfolded after my fathers’ death, just soldiering on seemed to be the best option. To be honest I didn’t even think about it, it was just what I did. I saw the only alternative was ‘falling apart’ and that didn’t look like a good idea.

I chose to do Nursing, as it seemed an important skill given what had happened.  Life was good. Alongside this time I married a great guy and had three beautiful kids. What I didn’t realise was that all that time I was carrying around my grief, I had never really allowed it to be felt, I had pushed it away because it made me ‘fall apart’. Whilst we have licence to push our emotions away for a time – they don’t go away – they wait patiently until we are ready to feel them.

That time came for me some 30 years after my fathers death – our emotions are patient! A professional conflict set me on a different path where I moved into holistic wellness as a Clinical Hypnotherapist. 

Little did I know then that I was really beginning my own healing journey. I loved Hypnotherapy and all things holistic, but I was always searching for more and continued to study and search for tools for compassionate emotional wellness. Clients shared their incredible stories with me and I realised that to be really there for them I had to be vulnerable too. Along the way I became aware of the patterns that my grief had created. I learnt that my subconscious mind loves me to bits and everything it does is about keeping me alive and safe, and that it has zero ability to analyse! That’s the role of my conscious mind! 

Finally my studying and searching lead me to PSYCH-K and from day one, I realised that this was the missing piece I was looking for.  I had found something that was empowering and respectful, something that was measurable and repeatable, and importantly, something that was simple and effective!

PSYCH-K gave me all the tools I needed to have clarity around my story and realise that all those years ago I had laid down a pattern of ‘got to be strong, don’t fall apart’. I saw my mother fall apart and, all respect to her because she did work her way through it, but I didn’t like what I saw. It also gave me the insight to see how this seemingly OK pattern (who wouldn’t want to be strong and not fall apart?) was NOT working for me!! My subconscious was just trying to show me how perfect and right I was…so guess what, it was continually trying to prove that I was strong and didn’t fall apart! Great…thanks for that!  Now again I am lucky, so I didn’t draw in an abusive relationship…I didn’t draw in bankruptcy…I didn’t draw in kids on drugs…I didn’t draw in abuse. But in small ways I was manifesting conflict…until it ramped up to the professional conflict just to make sure I was paying attention! 

PSYCH-K enabled me to really understand how my subconscious mind works and  how to modify my beliefs and patterns – yes that’s right it gave me insight that clinical hypnotherapy had not!  So I could add in the missing piece of vulnerability to my strength! And I could add it in at a subconscious level for lasting change! Because the subconscious is running the show for all of us 95% of the time! And it operates a million times faster than the conscious mind!

I mean seriously! Why are we not taught this stuff at school? There is nothing mysterious about the subconscious mind! The laws of the subconscious mind are simple and universal. PSYCH-K is empowering!  I have simple tools that I can use to update limiting beliefs in my subconscious mind whenever they come up, and I am passionate about sharing this with you!! Everyone deserves PSYCH-K!

Now when I recognise a belief that doesn’t match the life I want to love and live, I can use PSYCH-K to update that belief then and there. Literally in a matter of moments I can create a new potential for myself. Then I create an action plan, gently shifting things in my reality to allow those new beliefs, those new programs to manifest in my reality.

Everyone deserves to have this knowledge and their own key for transformation, in whatever way is right for you!

PSYCH-K Instructor

Looking back with 20:20 hindsight I can now see that everything happens in divine timing. 

When I found PSYCH-K® I was immediately and quite inexplicably drawn to it.  I knew very little about it really, yet I knew without a shadow of doubt that I wanted to take PSYCH-K as far as I possibly could. 

I had been a devotee of Dr Bruce Lipton’s work for several years. In the field of Energy Psychology, PSYCH-K is Bruce’s highest recommendation. I wondered why it took me so long to get around to studying PSYCH-K, and why I was drawn to it so quickly? 

When I found PSYCH-K I felt quite simply that I had found exactly what I was looking for. It was for me the ‘missing piece’ and the ‘missing peace’ that it is for so many people.

So my love of PSYCH-K blossomed and with lots of support, focus and dedication a year later I became a PSYCH-K Instructor.
