*About My Catalyst for Fun Website and Network:
This site is created and published by me, Amanda Winters, an Austin, Texan
transplanted from New Orleans, LA.
I am a Counselor/Licensed Clinical Social Worker/ mental health counselor, with a private practice
To find out more my counseling practice, or to book a session with me, click here. I have linked
my favorite psychological/philosophical teachers books/audio
on the Resources Page of this website. See the tab link above to access them.
I adopted the nickname “Catalyst for Fun” because I love to crowd rouse (get people dancing!)
and share community and fun resources.
For more on that, please check out my Austin and non-local newsletters,
Facebook, Twitter and other social media ( All linked above).
Professionally, I am a Counselor/Licensed Clinical Social Worker/ mental health counselor
and I love to connect with people that way too! To see more about that, click here.
I offer a a free 15 minute telephone, skype or in-person consultation to those interested in my services.
The Work of Byron Katie: I invite you to click here for my webpage about The Work of Byron Katie. The technique assists one to question disturbing, stress producing thoughts to create a clearer, kinder perspective on life
using a simple 4 question technique.
* Some Party Pics: Disclaimer:
Admittedly, as the pictures show, I run a 'hug scam' at the events below--
grabbing people and calling it 'free hugs' ! Looking like I am giving hugs, when I am getting them!
Ha! Unseriously though, the international free hugs movement has been very very good to me!
Find out how to run your own scam and/or join me at the many fests I go to by clicking on my Festifariann & Funtrepreneur Tips Page on my resource page linked above :)
