Kali Cathie Hypnotherapy
Kali Cathie, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology, is also known as Carmel by life long friends and family. She is a lover and follower of Truth, Trust and Freedom. All that she does in the world is about connecting to the Truth within her and Trusting it. From here, Kali has found that Freedom naturally follows… but it all starts by understanding the nature of mind, changing thought patterns that don’t serve to ones that do… AND connecting to Soul.
In 2014 Kali embarked upon her Yoga Teacher Training with Wanderlust and is now a Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher. You can connect with her for group private classes in the Tahoe Truckee area or visit her at Tahoe Flow Arts Studio, Tuesday mornings at 9.30am for Soul Yoga…. here she also holds a SacredSHE Moon Circle every Monday evening at 5.30pm.
In her Hypnotherapy practice, and interlaced through all that she does, she will help you to explore the deeper nature of mind so that you uncover the deeper beliefs that motivate you or, indeed block you, from living your best and most fullest, possible life. From here she helps you connect to the deepest part of self – your Soul. At this depth she then helps you to uncover your true meaning and purpose in life so that you are guided from within to activate that information in daily life.
Kali was born and raised in New Zealand, and became a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist (CCHt), trained by world renown Hypnotherapist and educator, Tim Simmerman, at the Hypnotherapy Academy of America, Santa Fe, New Mexico in 2004. 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.
Kali’s training is founded upon Simmerman’s innovative and highly effective approach to Clinical Hypnotherapy, Pain Management and Accelerated Healing. His approach acknowledges the physical and the emotional, as well as the spiritual. In fact it was his grounded approach to the Spiritual aspect of his course that drew Kali’s attention to the Academy in the first place… and it was this aspect that further fueled her continuing search for inner Truth and later led her to the daily yoga and meditation practice she continues today.
Kali has a thorough and comprehensive understanding of classical 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 Kali calls Reincarnation Therapy, Life Between Lives work (Micheal Newton and Dolores Cannon style), childbirth hypnosis 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. She also understands that it is when you loose touch with Soul that these symptoms then arise. Clearing the clutter that disconnected and then reconnecting back with Soul is key in transcending that which limits you.
In May of 2009, knowing it was time to deepen her own inner work she partook in a 10 day silent vipassana retreat…. the 111 hours of meditation and ten consecutive days of silence during that retreat propelled her into the depth of her Soul. Here she finally came to terms with the impermanence of mind. Wanting a more philosophical container than what vipassana provided, she turned to Zen. In March of 2010, she journeyed to Australia where she partook in a Mondo Zen sesshin (silent meditation retreat). Here she connected deeply with the teachings of American Rinzai Zen Master, Jun Po Roshi. In August of 2010 she followed this deepening passion to his Wild Goose Zendo in the State of Massachusetts where she attended his Teacher Training retreat. 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 favorite quotes are “Your angst is your liberation” and “Life is meant to be erotic, not neurotic!”
Earlier in 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 had been offered in the Southern Hemisphere making Kali 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, Kali 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 Regression and hypnotherapist who specializes in the recovery and cataloging of “Lost Knowledge.” This is very exciting work for the Spiritual Travelers’s among us as it can also help you uncover your own personal lost knowledge and better understand the Soul intentions and desires with which you entered this life.

In addition to her extensive hypnotherapy training she 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. Throughout Kali’s career she has developed her intuitive abilities to the degree that a Tarot Reading with her may well be one of the most insightful conversations you’ll ever have.
Kali approaches her work with a holistic outlook that takes into consideration all aspects of mind, body, heart and Soul. Her goal is to help you bridge the gap between these areas of life so that you experience the Soulful comfort of inner alignment with Truth – your Truth.
Quality of life is enhanced by having a healthy sense of who you are, what you came here to do and having the courage to do it – despite the challenges your Soul Path may throw you.
Kali is quite possibly the only person 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 and her keen intuitive sense guides the way at every step. In working with Kali you will find a stronger desire and ability to live your inner Truth and trusting your own inner Wisdom – in other words through Trusting your Soul.
