Frequently Asked Questions

Is there parking available?

There are multiple parking options. We are directly across the street from Calhoun Square which has a parking ramp. You can also grab metered parking right on the street in front of us. If you don’t mind walking several blocks, you can find free street parking along the roads south of 31st street.

Is there anywhere for me to park my bicycle?

Yes! Bicycle racks abound everywhere!

I have mobility issues. Is there elevator access?

Yes. In addition, if you give us advanced notice of any required accommodations we can do our best to be prepared and help make this a comfortable experience. Alternatively, we are able to provide most services remotely via secured video call app.

Do you accept walk-ins?

At this time, no. We only accept a certain number of clients within a given time frame and focus our attention on their cases. Walk-ins would be too disruptive to the energy, time, and work we dedicate to them outside of their scheduled appointments.

What kinds of issues do you work with?

We work specifically with the bio-energy fields of the body and Higher Conscious/subconscious. Since these areas are directly connected to both the physical body and the emotional/mental states, we are able to help people with a wide range issues affecting both their physical and emotional/mental health. If you have a specific diagnosis and would like to know how our therapies might benefit you, please contact us directly via email (mel@460sjournal.com) or phone (612.430.9385).

I think I have __________. Can you confirm this?

Only medical doctors and board licensed therapists are equipped and lawfully allowed to diagnose.  However, if you have a diagnosed condition, we can offer therapies to work in conjunction with your prescribed treatments in order to help you accelerate the healing process.

Will your therapies cure my __________?

Since we are not medically licensed professionals, we can claim no cures. Having said that, we have had much success helping our clients in partnership with their primary care givers and therapists.

Will health insurance cover the costs of my private sessions?

It is a possibility. We are registered as a national Health Care Provider and have an identifier number in order to work with Health Insurance Companies. It will all depend on whether your policy covers “Alternative” or “Complimentary” treatments and what types of treatments, specifically, they cover.

Alternatively, some HSA’s and FSA’s can be used for reimbursement for certain services. Keep in mind, there may be certain requirements such as a referral from an MD. We will certainly do all we can to work with your insurance provider to get your sessions covered. However, your best bet is to consult with your insurance provider directly.

What forms of payment do you take?

We accept cash, check or major credit cards with or without a chip, or HSA cards.

Keep in mind that we do not tend to keep cash in the office so would be unable to make change.

What is your refund policy?

Refunds may be requested for pre-paid services that have not been rendered.

What is your cancellation policy?

We require 48 hours advance notice to cancel or re-schedule any appointments.  If an appointment is cancelled inside of that window, fees are due in full and will be applied to the CC you have on file.

When is payment due?

Because our clinic services people worldwide and several of our practitioners have a wait list, we’ve had to come up with a standard process that works the same for everyone.  Thus, as of January, 2019, fees are due in full at the beginning of your session.

Sessions delivered in person may be paid via cash or check directly to the practitioner.

NOTE:  If you live outside of the USA, your invoice will be sent via email.  You’ll still be able to pay securely online, but this will allow us to absorb the majority of currency conversion fees for you.

What exactly is this Client Portal you speak of?

It is a secure platform that allows us to share sensitive documents between each other.  Through it, you can view your schedule, adjust or cancel your appointments, and access and pay your invoices.  This is also where you can access any documents we send to you (i.e., intake forms, consent forms, etc.).

How do I pay if I don't live inside of the USA?

If you live outside of the USA, we actually will NOT charge the CC you keep on file.  Instead, you will receive an invoice via email which you can pay securely online.  You must still submit payment 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment or it may be cancelled and offered to someone on our wait list.

What's the difference between a psychic reading and a psychic session?

People seeking out a psychic reading are looking for somebody to “give them the answer”.  Here are some common questions:

  • When will I meet my significant other?
  • Should I take job A or job B?
  • Does my ex boyfriend still think about me?

The psychic reader simply tries to provide the answers.

However, a psychic therapist recognizes that these questions are symptomatic of a deeper misalignment and with the help of your Angels, guides you toward the type of work and understanding needed to move beyond these states and realize the answers on your own.

Because the psychic therapist is working directly with Universal Energies, paths are shown quite quickly – but you must still walk yourself down the path of progress and growth.

I have a list of questions. Can we get through all of them in a single session?

Maybe. There are two important things to understand when working with a Psychic Therapist.

  1. Your Guides, Guardians, and Angels initiate and drive the session. You may come in with a specific question, but you must remember that this is a therapeutic session. Thus, your Guides will likely take you through a process and a specific order of events to ensure that you are able to absorb the information related to your concerns.
  2. This isn’t a psychic reading. If you are working with Catherine, expect that whatever solution you are seeking… it will be provided by your Guides through a therapeutic process and at the pace in which they know best for you. You may not be able to connect the dots in the beginning, but the dots do always connect.

Can you predict the future?

Most everybody has free-will. When Catherine is advising you with the help of their Guides, they can only present information according to what Catherine calls “The Threads of Free Will”.

Information may be presented that shows you the destinations(s) of your present state – but that’s all it is.

Can you place a curse on someone for me?

We practice therapeutic sessions. In most cases, applying a curse on somebody is the opposite. So until we can think of a therapeutically beneficial reason to cast a curse, the answer is going to have to be “no”.

I would love to try out a session, but don't have any specific questions. Can I just come with the expectation that you will just pass on any messages I need to know?

No. If that’s what you’re hoping for, you may be looking for a psychic reading, not psychic therapy. Psychic therapy aims to reveal your path toward Soul Integration and Spiritual Alignment so that you can experience this life to the fullest.

How often do people schedule sessions?

Just like conventional therapy sessions, it varies and is dependent upon the needs of the individual. Frequency ranges anywhere from weekly to a few times a year. Folks who are in a phase where they are trying to address large life challenges tend to book more frequently, just as they would if they were working with a licensed psychiatrist or psychologist.

What's the difference between a Conventional Therapist and a Psychic Therapist?

A lot! First and foremost, we are not licensed psychiatrists or psychologists. Their education covers a different modality than what we apply. It would be no more appropriate for us to claim their same skill set as it would for a psychologist or psychiatrist to claim our skill set without appropriate training.

Basically, they specialize on learning how your mind functions in order to help you address issues. Psychiatrists, specifically, are medical doctors and are educated in the use of medication to suppress disease.  We are not and we don’t.

Instead, Catherine communicates directly with disembodied entities (Guides, Guardians, Angels, etc.) who are able to provide guidance and direction through them and for you. Unlike a standard reading where you’re simply presented information, a Psychic Therapy Session also involves Soul Integration so that you can evolve your thought process and understanding, putting you in a position where you can resolve similar issues in the future and relieving you of creating an unhealthy dependency on a Psychic Professional.

We have found that those in conventional therapy find great benefit in supplementing that therapy with our Sessions and vice versa.

What's the difference between a Jierasu Reiki and regular Reiki?

Jierasu Reiki is specific to and practiced exclusively by our family line.

We use different delivery (heart source instead of hands) and work primarily in the Spiritual Planes as opposed to the physical planes. This means we use a technique that invites your Soul to ascend with our Souls to Spiritual Planes more conducive to the healing work.

What is the difference between Jierasu Reiki and Medical Hypnotherapy?

Any type of Reiki is the practice of working with the body’s energy fields.  Whereas hypnotherapy involves working with the sub-conscious mind.

In my practice, (unless otherwise requested) I combine the two for a more holistic approach to energy medicine.

Can I get stuck in hypnosis?

No. You are awake, aware, and in full control during the entire process. Not only will you not get “stuck”, you can choose to end the session at any point.

Can anybody be hypnotized?

Yes, everybody is can be hypnotized, some “seemingly” more easily than others.

Researchers tend to classify people as ‘highs’, ‘mediums’, or ‘lows’.  About 80% of people are in the ‘medium’ band – meaning that they can experience many of the effects of hypnotic suggestion, and are likely to benefit from its clinical use if necessary.

 

However, we at 460’s Journal LLP have found a connection between hypnosis and your bio-energy body which, once identified, allows us to work with each classification of people with success.  Basically, if you can fall asleep, you can enter a state in which we can help you.

What does one experience in a session with you?

The first appointment is the evaluation. We analyze your bio-energy fields using a specialized camera on your finger tips. Discuss your goals, symptoms, struggles, etc.

In most cases, you receive a treatment that involves taking you into a state of deep relaxation where hypnotherapy or other energy therapies maybe applied based on the first portion of your evaluation.

Your responsiveness is assessed. A theory of treatment is created (aka treatment protocol). Your options are presented.

What are bio-energy scans?

We utilize specialized equipment that allows us to capture, measure, and analyze your energy fields (including your chakra activity) and use it in conjunction with many of our treatments.

The resulting data can be used to understand the affects of your energy fields on your physical organs and/or emotional state and vice versa.  This is not the same as an aura photograph.  Our equipment emits an undetectable electrical impulse, then captures the chemical reaction of your energy fields and translates that data into information we can use to monitor certain aspects of your health.

Can my doctor send medical records to you?

Yes. We are HIPAA compliant and can send/receive sensitive material via email or fax.

What kinds of conditions can you treat?

When it comes to working with the sub-conscious and the body’s energy fields, there is probably not a known condition that wouldn’t benefit by at least some attention through our area of expertise.

we are not medical doctors nor licensed therapists.  Therefore, we cannot diagnose nor claim to cure any condition.  However, we can work with you and/or your medical team to help make their treatments more effective or even alleviate certain symptoms in which they are having little to no success.

What's the difference between a life coach and a therapist?

There are clear differences between life coaching and therapy. Life coaches are not health professionals and do not diagnose a condition. Rather, life coaching is focused on solutions, momentum and forward movement, developing potential and improving results and performance. Therapy on the other hand is wonderful for healing, more focused on the past and understanding and diagnosing the problem, but not action nor future oriented.

Why should I work with an Awakening Coach?

Professionals, leaders, CEOs hire coaches not because they are helpless or incompetent. They hire coaches to take them to the next level of success. Even the most skilled athlete and successful people can benefit from coaching. The coach is there to provide as an expert guide, a sounding board and second set of eyes to offer fresh outlook and outside perspective. Moreover, coaching works when people are ready and willing to help themselves.

Why should we hire you among sea of coaches?

As previous accountant turned awakening coach, Tess’ area of expertise is inner reconciliation and soul integration.

She created Open Heart Mind Coaching Solution which is a blend of Strategic Intervention, Accounting and Higher Awakening Consciousness and her own lessons from her own cosmic 2×4’s. Strategic Intervention encompass: human needs psychology, strategic therapy, social action therapy, direct and indirect negotiation, the third side, Ericksonian therapy, structural family therapy, life-cycle theory of business organization, mediation and conflict resolution techniques, organizational psychology and community organization.

Tho not a therapist, Tess is a certified strategic interventionist who is highly trained to dive deep and offer healing (reconciliation/integration = healing) at the root cause of the problem. Unless the client completely heals from the past, the cycle/pattern of self sabotaging one’s keeps reoccurring, until it is disrupted and broken down and pulled apart. As a trained life coach, Tess has experience, expertise and know-how to help you improve your performance and to reach your highest potentials. Tess takes it up a notch using her background in Accounting and various  training in consciousness awakening, plus her own graduation from her dark night of the soul, Tess’ gift is to activate their soul consciousness and lead people into soul embodiment and integration.

Why get coaching when I have support from friends and family?

While having support of family and friends are super amazing, life coaching goes far beyond what a conversation with a best friend can offer. Coaches are trained, experienced and have the tools and resources to expand and shift your awareness. Most often, friends and family members are not as objective and neutral and would respond based on how they feel rather than what is good for you. Coaches are objective and offers unbiased perspective to help you accomplish your goals. They are far removed from the situation, have a “helicopter vision” and have no vested interested and have your best interest at heart.
