About me

I am a qualified and experienced Clinical Hypnotherapist and I work with clients both in person and online, as this gives the flexibility to work with people anywhere in the UK and internationally.

You are probably reading this page because you are looking for help to improve your life, or looking for help for someone you care about.

I run a welcoming and confidential service, and I really enjoy helping my clients make the changes that they want to achieve. It was within my previous career of being a Registered Nurse that led me into further studying to help people with their feelings and emotions; in particular anxiety, confidence, stopping smoking and personal development. The way you feel about yourself and the confidence you have in yourself, directly impacts each area of your life. Think about it now, are there things you want to explore in your life but you feel held back in some way? Is there a new career or business change you are thinking about, but your confidence and fears are getting in the way? Are you living your life to the way you want it, or someone else's expectations of you?

Many physical issues are a result of unresolved emotional issues from the past or due to unhealthy emotions about yourself; so I believe the inner work is so very important to have the best life possible. Remember, nothing is permanent, and you do not have to hang on to anything you do not wish to! I am talking here about anxiety, childhood traumas, past events, phobias, unhelpful habits, long term stress...and the list goes on. We were not born with any of the above, and anything that can be learnt, can also be unlearnt. It is never too late to make a change.

I can help you become more in control of yourself and feel happier in your life. Life is too short (and too amazing!) to be feeling anxious, low, unhappy, out of control or fearful. Often my clients have been feeling this way for a long time, until they discover that they hold the power to change their lives with a little help from me to guide them. I use clinical hypnotherapy, solution focused hypnotherapy and talking therapy/psychotherapy approaches to help you change how you feel. Many of my clients say they feel like they have known me for ages (even after just 1 session!), as I have an informal friendly approach. Through being our true authentic selves, we are able to connect, build a therapeutic rapport and get you the results you want.

In our first session together we can get to know one another, and you can share with me what it is you want to achieve and we can get started with getting you feeling better! Often after just the first session you will begin to feel lighter and more in control of your life. Once I know more about you and what it is you are looking to achieve, I can give you a rough idea how many sessions it will take to get you feeling how you want to feel! Remember, this inner work is a true investment in yourself and your future.

Here are some of the reviews and results from my clients on Google reviews and on my website:

'Working with Katie has been exactly what I have needed. She helped me recognise things about myself that I never thought I could. She has such a calming nature about her which instantly put me at ease. I came to Katie after the loss of my son and after being in an abusing relationship, she helped me realise so much about myself that I hadn’t realised and I’ll forever be grateful. I definitely recommend!''

''Katie has been helping myself and my partner through work related anxiety issues. We found Katie's approach completely professional, and after just a few sessions we are coping better with our anxiety, analysing our triggers, to the point where we feel much more relaxed, happier and with a more positive outlook. We were recommended to Katie Mahey Therapy through a friend who had previously worked with her to give up smoking and she's now quit completely. Highly recommended if you're looking for a welcoming, approachable therapist to help you move past those emotional hurdles and pressures of modern life.''

''OMG Katie, I have never felt so good! Just 1 session with you and I feel so much has lifted already. So pleased I found you and I can't wait for our next session together!''

''I cannot recommend Katie Mahey enough. I started to see her in 2019 for stress and anxiety around conceiving and trying for a baby after many years. I saw Katie after receiving surgery and I always left her sessions feeling calmer and happier. Shortly after seeing her for therapy I fell pregnant!!!! I then immediately returned to see her for further support on my mindset as I needed more support with my anxiety around miscarriage. She is incredibly kind, professional and I always felt safe and secure when in her presence. I would not hesitate to recommend Katie, i only wish I saw her sooner!!''

''Katie has a kind and caring manner and been very effective in supporting my daughter to deal with her anxiety. Highly recommended!''
