For three years now, Yolanda Comiskey has worked in Carbondale as a Psych-K (psychological kinesiology) facilitator and offers private sessions and workshops to those wanting to reprogram their conscious and unconscious habits.
Skeptic or not, you tend to let your guard down a bit when faced with her positive energy and open, approachable demeanor. She seems perfectly believable when she says she comes from a family of healers.
“Psych-K is all about belief,” Comiskey says. “These beliefs, usually subconscious, are often the result of lifelong ‘programming,’ and represent a powerful influence on human behavior. When you change your beliefs you can change the outcome.”
Psych-K then is a powerful tool, which helps you identify and transform beliefs that ‘sabotage’ you into beliefs that ‘support’ you, in any area of your life. It helps you gently rewrite the software of your sub-conscious mind and change your life.
Establishing communication with the subconscious mind through the muscle system, Comiskey uses energy work to address a variety of issues, including pain.
She says pain can be a limitation in the mind, which is reflected in the body. For example, a client with neck pain realized her body was speaking volumes when faced with the simple question, “Who is it that is causing pain in the neck?”
Many of her clients use Psych-K as an adjunct to regular medical care. “The mind is a powerful thing,” Comiskey says. “If you listen closely, your body may be trying to tell you something. And Psych-K can help you get to the root of it.”

Yolanda Comiskey has always been an observer interested in why people behave the way they do. Her deep intuition has helped her in many ways over the years. But it wasn’t until 2006 that she discovered a way to turn that gift into a career.
“I get blocks of information from I do not know where,” she said. “I’m like a radio receiver. With clients, it’s like I’m in another bandwidth. Somewhere in this bandwidth, I receive information on how to proceed with them. I then check it out for accuracy with the client. This part of what I do is a kind of intuitive healing.”
The other major part of Yolanda’s work involves psychological kinesiology. PSYCH-K is method of identifying and changing subconscious beliefs that perpetuate old habits and behaviors. With the aid of a PSYCH-K facilitator, you use your arm muscle system to access your subconscious mind. This is a safe and effective way to teach your conscious and subconscious minds to communicate more effectively and to create beliefs that will support you.
“PSYCH-K uses subconscious feedback to assess the direction of change for the higher self, the conscious mind, the body and the subconscious,” she said. “For example, eating chocolate is a repetitive habit. It’s a learned behavior and has certain beliefs associated with it.
“PSYCH-K can test certain belief statements to see where the energy is, whether it supports change or sabotages it,” Yolanda said. “If a willingness to change is present, then I can work with the client to change this habitual information to a new pathway.” Yolanda found PSYCH-K in 2006 when she attended a seminar with a friend after watching a DVD that featured PSYCH-K founder Rob Williams.
“When I saw Rob demonstrate a PSYCH-K balance, it was like a thunderbolt. I said, ‘This is what I’ve been looking for my whole life.’ Then I looked up PSYCH-K workshops and found out that one was scheduled in my area in two weeks. I knew I had to go.”
Yolanda did attend that basic PSYCH-K training weekend in Memphis and an advanced training in Nashville six months later. She has since attended the basic training a total of five times and plans to get her certification as a PSYCH-K trainer in March.
“I did the basic training and the advanced training with my friend, Denise,” she said. “Throughout it all, our relationship was transformed. The difficulties we had in relating to each other were replaced with an intimate bond of love.”
Yolanda uses PSYCH-K relationship balances to help others accomplish the same thing that happened with her and Denise as they were learning the process. The balancing process deepens the understanding between individuals by identifying and transforming issue that present challenges to relating.
“PSYCH-K can be used for couples, parents and children or any relationship,” she said. “I have used PSYCH-K balancing for businesses to help them eliminate relationship issues that cause a slowdown or conflict in the workplace. Clear the energy blocks and a team can work and communicate more effectively.”
Besides relationship issues, Yolanda works to help clients with core belief balancing, communication, spirit balancing and achieving or altering goals. She also works with clients who have pain in the body that cannot be explained by any medical reason.
“PSYCH-K has been around for 20 years,” Yolanda said. “I want to be able to teach others this system so they can use it on themselves. Get to the root of a problem, make the change you want and move on with your life.
“Particularly, I would love to work more with parents and teens. PSYCH-K can not only help them assess their communication. It can also help teens discover who they are and who they want to be. How wonderful it would be to help them realize they can be successful and move forward in their lives with confidence.”
If you are intrigued by PSYCK-K but aren’t sure it would work for you, then take Yolanda’s advice.
“If your gut is telling you that some change is needed, then take a step. You will certainly not achieve anything by standing still. Try something and see if it works for you. If it does, great. If not, try something else until you find your fit.”
Yolanda also offers “A Better Weigh” seminars with psychologist Annette Vaillancourt. The seminars teach emotional eaters how to change subconscious beliefs that can sabotage success in losing weight. The next seminar is scheduled Jan. 16 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at Gold’s Gym in Carbondale.
