Larry Valmore's Success Stories: "No More Nerves"

No More Nerves on Grating
or Mum's the Word
or Climb High, Sigh Low

Larry Valmore

This past May, I had the privilege of spending the day in Hermannsdorf, Germany (about 30 minutes south of Munich), with the lovely Manuela Kroos. She is German, but is quite fluent in English, which she speaks with a mixture of German and British accents (from my Yankee point of view). She sends the following Success. She does make a few slight errors writing English, but hey ˜ she does a whole lot better than I would do writing German! I've left her words just as I got them, for authenticity.


A woman with acrophobia came to see me for the second time. I expected it to be a straightforward session, based on past experience with the topic and on working with her previously.

Oh well, the process thought me differently.

The key believes and balances were:

1. "I climb up high, look down and feel ok." Did a VAK to the Future resulting in "I discovered my strength" and then used New Direction balance.
2. "I trust myself and listen to my inner voice." Did a VAK to the Future resulting in "I'm happy now," used Resolution Balance.
3. "It's easy for me to receive love from others." Did a VAK, one photo came up (she hugs her mum) resulting in "I let go of blockades." Again, Resolution Balance.

Besides the three key balances, we did a couple believes from the [7 Categories of Change] sheets. The central issue was the relationship with her mum, which could have been the cause of the acrophobia. After the session we went to a barn with very high silos and steel grating balconies/walks on top of the silos. She had tried to climb up several weeks ago but couldn't get up. This time she climbed all the way up to the top, walked around, and looked down. She couldn't believe it. What a joy!

Lots of love from Herrmannsdorf,


Manuela Kroos

I submitted this one to the site for inclusion because I'd like to see us all send in our successes. Larry Valmore is a PSYCH-K Instructor from Denver and has been doing Success Stories for a long time, but they only go out to Instructors, as far as I can tell.

So, I'd like to expand that to Practitioners, too. Feel free to submit your success stories for others to read and comment on. This is a great way for all of us to learn and expand what we do with PSYCH-K!
