On the Beat With Catherine Johns-Part 2

About a month ago, I wrote about meeting Catherine Johns, a long-time favorite radio personality of mine.  Originally intended to be worked into a piece right here, our chat focused more on her current career, that as a Certified Hypnotist and a Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming at the Chicago Hypnosis Center, which she co-owns.
I was very interested in that part of her career.  I had no previous experience with hypnosis and really only the very basic knowledge of it.  While I have never been afraid of hypnosis, I have never really been interested in it either, until the meeting with Catherine.
Like most people, I have issues.  I have attempted many practices to rid myself of my self-imposed burdens.  Some have worked to some degree, but I am always looking to further clear my cluttered mind.  I want to improve the quality of life.
Last week, I had my first actual hypnosis session.  It's sort of like being in a trance.  I was leaning back in a comfy chair listening to Catherine guide me through some mental practices.  I remember her saying I would drift back and forth and I did.  As she guided me back to a fully conscious state, I felt different.  I didn't realize until later that I actually felt a bit lighter.  I wrote more in depth about the actual process for my online piece at Global Traveler.
It's a week later and I have not lost that feeling.  I can't say I completely am rid of my issues, but I know I am better.  I plan on seeing Catherine for more hypnosis.  I'd like to see if I can further the progress and lessen the load even more.
The mind is so powerful and therefore the fears are equally as powerful.  Through hypnosis, Catherine delved into my subconscious and helped me retrain my brain.
It was such a wonderful experience.  Catherine is patient, caring and personable.  I immediately felt at ease with her.  If she could lessen my load, she could certainly help anyone.  I really encourage anyone to give it a try by calling her for a consultation session.  Hypnosis can be life-changing.  Why not let it change yours?
