Transcending The Traditional Therapy Practice

Shawn Quinlivan, C.Ht., Founder Of Cathexis Therapeutic Imagery


ca·thex·is -[kuh-thek-sis] noun

1. the investment of emotional significance in an activity, object, wish, fantasy, goal, or idea.

2. the charge of psychic energy so invested.



I conceived Cathexis Therapeutic Imagery to be more than a private therapy practice. My vision is to share the power of higher consciousness and holistic healing to audiences on a variety of innovative stages and platforms. Yet the intent is to do more than merely deliver the scientifically supported ideas of mindfulness and emotional intelligence as an inspirational message which might motivate or shift your perspective for a day or two, or perhaps a week. Instead, my purpose is to utilize the techniques of hypnosis, mindfulness meditation, and therapeutic imagery to engage your own intuitive sense of the mind, body, and spirit connection—to stimulate your innate wisdom and instinct about yourself and the world around you—and show you precisely how such an enlightened awareness can transform your reality.


Whether it is an educational presentation, seminar, guided meditation, life coaching event, or private hypnotherapy session, you will experience intriguing thoughts and feelings; questions will occur to you that beg for answers. You will contemplate and muse, and the deeper fabric and texture of all that seems to lie just beneath the surface will begin revealing itself in profound and astonishing ways. Indeed, your eyes will be opened to new and extraordinary possibilities.

    Hi Shawn,

    I spent some time on your site today and I’m very impressed with the amount of information you have on it. I’ll make sure Fay sees t and that we get more familiar with your practice.

    I was wondering though, how much would you charge for a workshop to educate people about hypnotherapy in general and your particular brand more specifically? I ask because I’m working on a project to produce a wellness festival and we want to have guest speakers and workshops. So let me know what your rates would be.

    Also, do you have a book or are you working on one?

      Hi Joel:
      Thank you for your comments. I will reach out to you about the festival and I am sure we can negotiate something reasonable.
