Cathy Guthrie-Smetzer, CHt, B.S - HW
Former Office Manager
Reiki Master/Shamanic Practitioner
Cathy sees clients for Hypnotherapy, Sound Healing (with Tuning Forks), Quantum Angel Reiki, and Shamanic Services. She has a Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness, from Kaplan University. She earned a certificate from the Southwest Institute of the Healing Arts in Hypnotherapy and is a member and certified through the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists (NATH). She is continuing classes to become a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.
Cathy spent sixteen years in the Bradenton/Sarasota area of Florida. Where she was mentored by a few of Sarasota’s prominent spiritual leaders: Rev. Zan Benham, Jo Mooy & Patricia Cockerill. She has been a Reiki Master since 2009, trained by Zan Benham, in the lineage of Diane Stine, author of Essential Reiki. Zan is a card carrying member of the Cherokee Nation, Bear Tribe Medicine Society and has ties to Shamans in Peru. She taught Cathy many things from the American Indian and Peruvian spiritual traditions: fire circle ceremonies, sweat lodge, ceremonial drum making, sacred pipe ceremony, journeying and more. Her Reiki training was enhanced by attending energy workshops: Quantum Touch, Advance Quantum Touch and Sound Workshops taught by Jo and Patricia. She volunteered as an energy healer before meditation gatherings for Jo and Patricia as well.
The above modalities together reawakened her ability to communicate with Angels and channel their energy. In her early 20's, with a religious group's prayers and healing hands, her mind was closed off from the other side. This brought her peace to know her own self better, to heal and grow. The workshops, reopened her to higher, angel communications. Years later her mind reopened to all beings, to bring healing to them as well. It has become part of her healing Sessions.
After she moved back to the tri-state area. She received Karuna Reiki training with Sue Edwards, and training with Tuning Forks from Ohm Therapeutics TM with instructor Samantha Jennings. She continues to receive training through the Foundation for Shamanic Studies with Dana Robinson. Workshops she's taken include: Way of the Shaman, Shamanism & Nature Spirits, Shamanism, Dying and Beyond, Extraction Healing Training, Power Soul Retrieval and Dana & Shana's Workshop, Possession: White Table Ceremony.
