HYPNOTHERAPY

“Her work allowed me not only to discharge that grief but sweep away the debris so that I could fully breathe again.”

I appreciated getting to know Cat as well as her multi-layered interventions on my behalf, I benefit from them still. I am amazed at how well her hypnotherapy with me on that topic worked.  I'd not quite realized how much grief I was in until we began. Her work allowed me not only to discharge that grief but sweep away the debris so that I could fully breathe again.  As one of the ancestors said "it was like the fresh breeze that rises up when the great burden is set down". She listened deeply and clarified in a way that was essential to that release.  The life affirming suggestions that Cathy gave me was what my own heart/mind had spoken, though somehow you opened them up fully. Her voice and words were so therapeutic that I danced along beside them in trance.  She is a true bodhisattva - one who offers whatever good she has to the world. Let the baby boomers know that she is there - we need her, and there's a lot of us. Much love,

“Cathy allowed me to face my fear, and helped me to uproot all the negative feelings and thoughts…”

As a kid I was mocked when I danced and was made fun of for my appearance (I used to be a chubby kid)! These constant expressions from people around me had made me lose confidence in myself. Although I felt like dancing on many occasions, I wouldn’t make a move because of the humiliation I might face when I danced and how it made me feel about my appearance in public. I was always hesitant. A wonderful healing session with Cathy helped me a great deal! With hypnotherapy, Cathy allowed me to face my fear, and helped me to uproot all the negative feelings and thoughts around my appearance in public! Now I could not care less for what people think when I dance! I had a breakthrough and now I do not hesitate to perform in public, my appearance is the least of my worries. After our session together I felt great! I went from being overwhelmed and depressed to now feeling positive and back to my outgoing self.

I also had a past life regression session; Cathy with her soothing voice no less, allowed me see my past clearly and it helped a great deal with my present life. I was able to see who I was in one of my past lives and that gave me a lot of confidence also. I am so happy that I had these sessions with Cathy!

“Just one session gave me a tool that I can use for the rest of my life.”

My previous experience with Hypnosis, which I think was more entertainment, was watching a guy on stage "supposedly" do some jedi mind tricks to get people to act like chickens and other farm animals. Hypnotherapy was something I never heard of. There was an immediate sense of familiarity with Cat when I met her at the start of a 10 day hike through the Himalayan mountains. As a meditator, I was interested in new perspectives to deepen my practice. I had the privilege to take part in a session with Cat as she guided me through visualizations and affirmations. To this day, I'm able to tap into this space to explore my creativity and sense of self. Just one session gave me a tool that I can use for the rest of my life. For that, I am forever grateful.

“Instrumental in healing a medical issue which persisted for over a decade & which no doctor could find an answer to.”

Cathy is a gifted healer. Her intuition, intelligence, and skill in hypnotherapy were instrumental in healing a medical issue which persisted for over a decade, and which no doctor could find an answer to. I diligently practiced the techniques which Cathy and I collaborated on, and began to notice results within a week. It’s now two months later and the issue is nearly completely resolved! I have the utmost confidence that I will be completely healed in the near future.

YIN YOGA & YOGA NIDRA

I never felt like a newb, despite being one.

“The pain in my hips has totally disappeared and I am much more flexible now.”

Yin yoga with Cat was my first live yoga class.  Until this time I had only tried yoga via YouTube videos.  Because of my limited experience, I could not figure out what all the hype was surrounding yoga; that was until I went to one of Cat’s classes. She invited me to the class she was teaching, and I figured it couldn’t hurt to try it.  Yin yoga was nothing like what I was expecting. It was so much better! Cat was a great teacher and explained how to do each pose and why it was important.  She showed alternate poses or stretches to ensure everyone in class was able to work the same target area regardless of their flexibility or experience. I never felt like a newb, despite being one.  I found yin yoga to be relaxing and rejuvenating at the same time. Cat’s delivery of the instructions and explanations were soothing and almost hypnotic. To top off this already wonderful practice, Cat ended each class with a beautiful meditation technique, yoga nidra.  Ending each class with yoga nidra was absolutely perfect. I left each class feeling wonderfully relaxed and more connected to the divine power and love within me. After taking Cat’s class approximately twice a week for 6 weeks, I physically and emotionally feel better. The pain in my hips has totally disappeared and I am much more flexible now.  Because of Cat’s great guidance I feel confident in my ability to continue practicing yin yoga on my own until I can find an instructor in my home town. I now see why there is so much hype surrounding yoga, I’m definitely a believer and will continue to practice regularly. I am so glad Cat invited me to her class, practicing yin yoga with her was amazing. Blessings & Light,

“The treasure I take away is the experience of the opposites integrated.”

My dear Cat, thank you for this fluent and fluid yoga nidra, that left me feeling very connected and present. I especially enjoyed the careful placement of the raindrops in the rotation and the mellifluous nature of your voice which I found to be very soothing and nourishing - what I remember most vividly is the sense of the reconciled opposites, of the presence simultaneously of the clarity of lows the welcome for uncertainty you held these together very skillfully in the sankalpa section. Everything about the practice was skillfully held, the treasure I take away is the experience of the opposites integrated. With great respect and love,

“She is very approachable yet deep with insights.”

I really enjoyed Cat's Yin yoga and meridians class.  She is very approachable yet deep with insights. Cat has the ability to guide you deep in your practice on a physical and emotional level.  I highly recommend taking her classes!

“I simply can’t express the surprise and sheer joy of this experience.“

Thank you for this exquisite and beautiful crafted practice of yoga nidra which left me feeling delightfully nourished. I so love the serenity and flows of your voice and the spaciousness of the practice. The unique and precious quality of your yoga nidra practice that I most clearly remember was my utter delight at the image and soundscape of the rotation of the body. I simply can’t express the surprise and sheer joy of this experience. I loved the integration of the element of raindrops throughout all components of the practice, it truly flowed so beautifully. The true jewel for me, the treasure I shall take aware was the opportunity to have a full bodied multi dimensional experience of the raindrops/sound/body as well as the masterful and skillful guidance of the opposites of knowing and unknowing within the heart-space. With great respect and love,
