After struggling with mild but chronic depression for most of her life, Kathleen Simonds spent 720 hours learning a way out. Armed with her 720-hour certification in hypnotherapy, she uses the holistic healing method to treat others' conditions, ranging from the aforementioned depression to relationship issues and smoking habits. Unlike hypnosis you might see used as a party trick, hypnotherapy relies on deeply relaxing the patient so that the therapist's positive suggestions can penetrate their subconscious.
As a former journalist and photographer, however, Simonds has deep reservoirs of creativity––too much to rely on a single approach. She also treats her clients with tarot-card coaching, a collaborative take on tarot-card reading that incorporates thoughtful dialogue. Alternatively, she can aid emotional release with aromatherapy.
