KALI CATHIE, CCHt / B.Soc.Sc
Kali Cathie, who's also been known as Carmel, New Zealand born and raised, is a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCHt), trained by world renown Hypnotherapist and educator, Tim Simmerman, at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America, Santa Fe, New Mexico. At the same time Carmel received A.C.H.E. accreditation as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and has maintained her membership with them.
Study also included working with the late Gil Boyne, world famous, pioneer of 20th century Hypnotherapy and "Master of Hypnosis," who regularly taught at the Academy and is the initial Founder of the A.C.H.E since 1980.
Kali’s training is founded upon Simmerman's superior and highly effective approach to Clinical Hypnotherapy, Pain Management and Accelerated Healing. Simmerman, who's made exciting breakthroughs in the world of Hypnotherapy, is also a specially trained paramedic. He developed a systematic application of hypnosis to the achievement of health and balance that acknowledges the physical and the emotional,
as well as the spiritual. In fact it was the Spiritual components to his course that drew Carmels' attention to the Academy in the first place... and it was this aspect that further feuled her continuing search for inner truth and later led her to the daily meditation practice she continues today.
Kali has a thorough and comprehensive understanding of
hypnotic techniques that aid in the clinical and medical realm of pain free childbirth, pain management and erasure, emergency hypnosis, surgery preparation (including dental) and accelerated healing. Further,
and more holistically comprehensive
areas of expertise, from which her unique style has developed and grown,
include analytical and transpersonal hypnotherapy, Transforming Therapy™ techniques developed by Gil Boyne, Core Transformation™, present, natal and past life regression, which Carmel calls Reincarnation Therapy,
Life Between Lives work (Micheal Newton style),
childbirth preparation, Mind Body Solutions™, dream work, guided imagery, focusing,
Thought Field Therapy (TFT or Energy Tapping),
Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), parts therapy, suggestion therapy, success, motivation, eradication of phobias, fears and addictions, weight loss and much more, including childhood quandaries such as thumb sucking, bed wetting, sleep walking, fears, phobias and other anxieties.
In March 2010 she returned to Australia where she partook in a Mondo Zen sesshin. Here she connected deeply with the teachings of American Rinzai Zen Master, Jun Po Roshi. In August of 2010 she followed this new found passion to his Wild Goose Zendo in the State of Massachusetts where she attended his Teacher Training Sesshin. Now she is the only facilitator of the Mondo Zen Koan Dialogue Process in New Zealand and is now running retreats and workshops for those who want to deepen their meditative practice and transform their Ego Self. Jun Po's two favourite quotes are "Your angst is your liberation" and "Life is meant to be erotic, not neurotic!"
In early 2008, her studies took her to Sydney where she partook in The Newton Institute Life Between Lives course. This was the first time this education has been offered in the Southern Hemisphere making Carmel one of the first of a unique group of people to bring this life transforming modality down under. Life Between Lives (LBL) hypnosis is both an extension and expansion of Past Life Regression (PLR) where one connects to their immortal soul self. The LBL process has been perfected by Dr Micheal Newton who is considered a pioneer in uncovering the mysteries about life after death through the use of Spiritual Regression (or integration).
In 2007, Carmel partook in further Past Life Regression studies that extended to include the life between lives and connection to what has become known as Universal Mind, by training with Dolores Cannon, an American Past Life Regressionist and hypnotherapist who specializes in the recovery and cataloguing of “Lost Knowledge.” This is very exciting work for the Spiritual Travelers’s among us as it can also help us uncover our own personal lost knowledge and better understand the blueprint with which we entered this life. Visit the Spiritual Hypnosis page for more information regarding the Spiritual Hypnosis side of our growth and development where you'll also find more on Reincarnation Therapy.
In addition to her extensive hypnotherapy training, Carmel Cathie, also holds a Bachelors Degree in Social Sciences, with majors in psychology and management, from the New Zealand University of Waikato. She is also a second degree Reiki healer and former Personal Fitness Trainer.
In 2006 Carmel began working with Soul Energy Clearing (SEC). This work is a unique energy balancing method that removes negativity from our past by connecting us to that inner voice that we all hear but may not listen to. It uses Mind/Body/Soul balancing techniques to identify, clear, and remove negative blocks and beliefs from the sub conscious mind. SEC reminds us that we have positive power over the negativity in our life when we listen to that inner voice. The effects are a lighter, clearer way of viewing ourselves and the world in which we live. And further, balancing the self in turn contributes to Universal balance.
Kali approaches her work with a holistic outlook that takes into consideration all aspects of mind, body and soul. Her goal is to help her clients bridge the gap between these areas of life so that one experiences the peaceful comfort of inner congruency; quality of life is enhanced by having a healthy sense of who we are and what we came here to do.
Kali is quite possibly the only person in New Zealand to work with hypnosis in the way that she does. Her approach is unique in that it combines analytical hypnosis with a deep understanding of spiritual growth and development. In this way her clients find a stronger desire to live their inner truth through their own inner wisdom to the benefit of health, wealth, happiness and peace.

A Personal Word from Kali
At Mala Hypnotherapy, I use Hypnotic Techniques, meditation instruction, spiritual guidance and practical dietary recommendations to help my clients transform their lives into ones of Health & Wealth, Happiness & Peace.
To what end hypnosis is applied is limited only by our imagination.
And here is why… The hypnotic state is simply a natural, yet altered, state of mind, where the conscious mind is relaxed and the wiser voice of the sub conscious mind is heard. This means we can determine between conscious and sub conscious levels while in a trance to the end that we understand consciously and review sub consciously simultaneously. In other words we have access to both conscious and sub conscious material. It is in this way that we are able to access and learn the positive intention of our own inner wisdom; and not that of our therapist - or our ego!
The sub conscious is the seat of our creativity and imagination and it is a gate way to the Cosmic, or Universal, Mind. Because of this, and that memory is maintained while in a trance, one can feel as though they are just “making stuff up”.
I have heard this time and time again from first-time clients. My response to them is “Yes, but why did you make up that particular scenario at this time?” Typically they have no idea and later realize the relevance, not to mention the deep wisdom, behind it. This is when they know that consciously they probably would not have arrived at the perfect conclusion so quickly, had they not had the benefit of trance aiding them access to their subconscious and or the Universal Mind. We have to remember we are alive in truly unprecedented times and to negate a mind that is bigger, wider and more open than our own, that we indeed have access to, is to cut ourselves off from much needed growth.
THREE VARIABLES REQUIRED FOR SUCCESSFUL HYPNOSIS
Hypnotherapy truly is a great way to remedy a plethora of problems quickly. However, although it is about the mind, it is a verbal therapy that requires the clients’ acknowledgement of one to three of the following variables before the process is a transformative one.
1. First and foremost is the clients desire to address the problem. Typically this will mean the client is sick of being sick, tired, in pain, fat, lazy, broke, guilty, angry, miserable, stagnant, in a rut, behind the times or whatever it is that they are which has put them in a constructive phase of discontent. In other words, they are motivated to grow and evolve and they are motivated to expand their mind and take on another perspective. The ability to take on more and more perspectives is key in this evolving world. Further, it is up to us to evolve and move beyond our finite restrictions if we want to create a world that will sustain itself for the future of our children.
2. Secondly is a realization that certain aspects of life just aren’t the way they feel they were meant to be. The client has realized they aren’t achieving their potential in some area of life, or, they have reached a plateau and are in a rut. A whole eco-system lives in this rut that can be addressed and remedied with hypnotherapy. Within this eco-system lies the patterning of our early childhood and past life conditioning which contains all the thoughts we keep having and, therefore, all the beliefs we run our life by. Many of these beliefs are deeply unconscious to us and take self-reflection and deep inner self-inquiry to uncover, reveal and transform.
3. The third variable that can draw one toward hypnotherapy is Existential Frustration, or the Evolutionary Impulse. This refers to ones level of enthusiasm, or frustration, regarding their existence and their desire to contribute to the balance of not only their own inner being, but also, to that of the planet. People are becoming more and more frustrated as they become aware they have lost the purpose, or the meaning, behind their existence and, in so doing, realize that that is reflected in the health and balance of the planet. There is a new feeling, or an emerging consciousness, that there must be an easier, more positively influential and constructive, or sustainable, way of being. This is where the awakened hypnotherapy who is integrally informed can help the client remember, or redefine, their purpose and contribution in life.
AN INTEGRAL APPROACH & THE CHAKRAS TO MEASURE GROWTH
I use an integral approach to hypnosis using now-time processes and,where necessary, regressional techniques to encourage the evolving soul to awaken to their full inner potential. Currently our Collective Mind (or the Cosmic, Global or Universal Mind) is evolving to a new and unprecedented level of consciousness. This means that world energies are shifting, changing and evolving as we tune into a new vibrational level of experience (or, awaken to the concept that we are consciousness becoming aware of the evolution of itself).
An integral approach means we take into account all levels of mind, body, heart and soul, as well as the many different lines of development that run through these areas of growth and awareness. Even when we are two, we are One. And so how each of us functions internally within ourselves effects how each of us interacts with those around us.
Using the Chakras as a barometer for growth we could say that, as a planet, we are moving out of the third chakra existence of money, power and control and into the fourth chakra where the universal heart energy is awakening and opening. This means the human race, on average, is potentially opening the collective heart to higher levels of compassion and love and can, therefore, finally develop a more intelligent society engaged in decent morals and ethics that no longer take, control and dominate but, instead, share, include and embrace. You will notice even your most staunch skeptic is beginning to open their mind and expand their awareness as they can no longer remain closed and self-absorbed. Instead, they begin to open their minds, and their hearts, to more compassionate and inclusive way's of being. It is up to us to each individually engage in self-inquiry, take on more perspectives and evolve our emotional intelligence so that, individually, we may contribute to the awakening of the Collective, or Universal, Heart/Mind.
An integral approach to hypnosis along with a daily meditative practice can be major components in the awakening of the Global Heart/Mind and a more peaceful and sustainable existence for all.
A fully integral approach will help one find a guiding philosophy that can provide a container for their awakening. This guiding philosophy may be found in the world of Zen, Buddhism, Sufism, Hinduism, Christianity, Yoga, Psychosynthesis and practically any lineage or belief system that has room for growth and transformation. Further an integral approach will ensure that clients are educated as to what intelligent dietary choices are and are encouraged to consume non-processed/live, organic, locally produced foods. Clients are further encouraged to take on a conscious embodiment practice such as yoga, qi gong, thai chi etc so as to enhance and strengthen their mind/body connection. The precious human body is a fundamental component to our evolutionary awakening. To acknowledge, love and accept this fact is to feed and nurture it with love and self acceptance. Indeed this very acknowledgement could be the basic fundamental component to living in a more loving, balanced, all-inclusive world.
Anyone motivated to relieve one or more of these variables can be hypnotized and thereby transform their life to one of health, wealth, happiness and peace. In so doing you would be contributing to the awakening of a new consciousness and the health and sustainability of our precious planet earth.
This is assuming of course, that the client has a good rapport with his or her hypnotherapist and trusts in them. This will mean that the hypnotherapist has dispelled any myths the client may have held regarding the practice of hypnotherapy and assessed the clients readiness for change in their life. Further they hypnotherapist will walk their talk, have their own spiritual practice and be engaged in their own evolutionary process so that they will exude an inner congruency and alignment with higher purpose.
Without any of this it is unlikely a smoker will stop smoking, an insomniac will develop better sleep patterns, or an anxious, frustrated person will find their calm place of peace and purpose. On the deeper levels of awakening and transformation, the client needs to be interacting with an example of where it is possible their self inquiry may get them.
In my own practice I meditate daily, eat a 60 - 80% raw food, vegetarian diet, practice yoga as much as I can and am continuously updating my skill base with spiritual study. In addition I address personal issues with various mind and body based therapies and pay very close attention to keeping my energetic field clear and balanced.
Please note that in any path of self inquiry it is part of the process that one comes across shadow states, negative beliefs and false self thoughts. As a part of the path to awakening and transformation these will need to be processed. Using an integral approach to hypnosis that takes into account the evolving state of mind, body, heart and soul is key in the processing and reconditioning of these aspects of our psyche; and an area I choose to specialize in. So if you are looking for someone to help you awaken to a deeper involvement with life and love, learning and growth then you have come to the right place.

With Grace and Love
For those wondering what Mala means:
Mala are beads used in meditative work where positive affirmations are counted off (traditionally a mantra in Sanskrit is repeated, but in this kind of work an affirmation that re programs the clients negative self thought is often used). Everyone holds negative self-thoughts to a certain degree — some to a debilitating degree. Working with hypnosis helps us find the positive intention of our own inner wisdom. Traditional Mala hold 108 beads. The extra eight are for when the mind wanders, or, if the mind didn’t stray, they go into a universal reserve where they can be used for the good of all mankind. In this seemingly small way, we are contributing to healing the planet one mind at a time while achieving our own goals at the same time.
And that be the goal at Mala Hypnotherapy!
