Janus interviews Patty Kogutek of Spiritually Speaking. Patty, author of “A Change of Habit” has helped thousands cure their anxiety, living “guilt-free”. Living as a Catholic nun for 7 years, and working her way through a 12 year failed marriage, Patty gathered “7 Secrets to Guilt-Free Living” that gave her the courage and the permission to finally follow her heart putting the expectation of others aside.
Although Patty has earned her doctorate degree in Educational Administration from the University of Southern California, she has learned her most valuable lessons through the “school of hard knocks” teaching her how to effectively protect her own happiness, living life on her own terms. You don’t have to be a former nun to have your happiness slip away.
Patty works with “women at risk” who try to please everyone, who have a difficult time saying “no”, and feel that they have to juggle life’s stresses taking care of everyone but themselves.
In what others may term as “failures” Patty views her “missteps” as stepping- stones to find happiness. She can now share her experiences showing other “guilt sponges” how debilitating an emotion guilt can be emotionally, physically, and psychologically. Those who have attended Patty’s workshops have raved in testimonials, thrilled that they have learned where guilt comes from, its physical manifestations, and how to avoid the pitfalls of those hurling guilt at them. Sharing the “7 Secrets to Guilt-Free Living” Patty leads others to take control of their lives to find the joy that they deserve.
“A Change of Habit” has won worldwide acclaim with 14 awards, both nationally and internationally. Patty has also released “The Making of a Guilt Sponge” the prequel to “A Change of Habit” sharing how guilt trips can take you to unwanted destinations.
