Katy Bird Hypnotherapy changed my life. I was suicidal for years, in and out of treatment centres, shock therapy, psychotherapy, counselling I tried them all, and nothing helped, literally my family spent thousands of dollars on treatments, and most of them made no difference at all, whereas the others made a change but it didn't last. I saw Katy last year, and I honestly thought it was a waste of time, I thought I knew it all, and the things she suggested seemed to easy or simple to work, but I did the homework she set me and I participated in the sessions, and I slowly started to feel better. Now 1 whole year later I am a totally different person. I love my life, and I love me so I will say again Katy Bird Hypnotherapy saved my life.

I seen Katy at the start of this year for depression. I really liked the sessions, and I have been feeling so much better ever since. The bad days are so rare now, and don't even last all day. I like going to work again, and I have even started playing footy again. I have seen lots of quacks over the years and none of them helped me. I saw Katy just 3 times and everything is better. She knows what shes talking about and she really listens, a true professional. If you need help see her. Thanks Katy
People I'm reaching out today with some bloody brilliant advice about mental illness I have a ulcer on my hand ATM that has led to another ulcers on my body the first advice I got didn't work so I went back for more advice to another person did exactly what they told me to and its working. If I had ignored and given up on trying to find the help I needed it would only get WORSE . MENTAL HEALTH IS THE SAME !!! I started off with depression and ptsd years ago thought I had dealt with it .I Had a baby at 41 got postnatal depression I didn't realize the warning signs I went off my meds ended up having a major mental Breakdown that shut me down for 2 years I now had depression pts postnatal depression and anxiety and suicidal thoughts we tried everything nothing could bring me back I tried killing myself 3 times but with the support of my family and friends we kept looking for help. We found Katy Bird hypnotherapist slowly with Katy's help and advice that I had to work bloody hard at she brought me back and my life is brilliant now and we still keep in touch .Katy and I have spoken this week she brought up even though I was none verbal and had shut down she could see in my eyes I wanted to get better so badly that i would take her advice and run with it. TODAY AND EVERY DAY I PUT HER ADVICE IN PLACE AND FOLLOW IT. The keys is keep pushing through find what helps for you or the first mental illness you started with will fester into other mental illnesses if you don't get help and work hard to get better .Please pass this on your pages help as many people as you can.

Hi Katie, I was talking with a friend today, and it made me want to share with you my own progress. I saw you just over 3 years ago for weight loss and at the time I had just been told that I was going permanently blind. I was in a really bad place emotionally, mentally and physically. I had 4 sessions with you. I still went blind, however I stopped being afraid and you helped me to see that although life would be different it was still full of possibilities. I have lost 16kgs and kept it off, I have changed careers and I met and married the man of my dreams. I look forward to every day, and I have you to thank for all of it. You truly are a wonderful person and I want to thank you so very much.

Hi Katy!
Its been almost a year since I came to see you - I lost 10kg between September and January, and every thing was going wonderfully, but it stagnated after that.
Should mention that was only because I fell pregnant - which was why I came to see you in the first place.
I'm almost 7 months along and have only put on 4kg throughout the pregnancy. Not that I care, I don't care about my weight or appearance at all nowadays and I am so much happier for it!
Hubby has picked up my new, good eating habits and has started living a healthier life too. He said its the best money we've ever spent, and I agree!
Shae Nicholson

  Thankyou for this change you have made in our lives!After 8 months of no cutting I am able to show off my arms again. No relapses, No need to let out the pain Thankyou Katy you are truly a magician.
I bought my daughter to see Katie last year, I was at my wits end, she was not going to school, had stopped playing basketball, and she was angry and anxious all the time. Everyday was filled with frustration and arguments, I was so stressed, I had previously taken her to a couple of different counsellors, but Sarah just wouldn't talk to them, and it was an absolute waste of money. I saw Katies ad on Facebook and thought it would be worth a try. Within 3 sessions I had my daughter back, it felt nothing short of miraculous. I thought it was great but I didn't trust it to last. That was 7 months ago, my daughter is back in school, and although she still gets picked on, it just doesn't affect her like it used to. She has so much self confidence and just doesn't care what the other kids think, she actually has more friends now than ever. Boy am I glad that I saw Katies ad. If you are thinking about getting help for your troubled teenager you should give her a whirl.
My dad took me to see Katie last year because i had awful anxiety and i could not go to school or see my friends because of the bullying. Katie made me feel better about myself and she was really cool and funny. If you want to feel better then see her.

We recently completed a 4 week family boot camp with Katy to help us all lose weight and get healthy. My husband and I have always been very fat, and our 3 teenage kids had become very fat. We had tried lots of different diets in the past, but mostly we were all never working together but separately and never really losing any weight. Our 19 yr old daughter had become so overweight that the doctors were concerned for her heart. As a parent hearing that your child might die before you is devastating. We were referred to Katy by our GP, and after a free initial consultation Katy suggested that we work as a family to overcome our issues with food and mindset. Katy was a bit like the Super Nanny, she visited us in our home, we had group hypnosis sessions as well as individual sessions, she taught us about food, nutrition, and our body shapes and how to manage our environment. We even had a shopping and cooking day. Since the beginning as a family we have lost just under 40kgs, I understand for the first time ever that losing weight is a journey not to be rushed, but to be learnt. We know that what we do today shows up later. I highly recommend Katy to anyone who needs to lose weight. She has truly saved us. Greg, Susie, Hannah, Michael and Daniel

We were referred to Katy by our GP as we have been struggling with our 12 yr. old daughters depression and anxiety. Our daughter had started cutting some time ago, and the sessions with a psychotherapist were not helping. Our daughter was always drained and unhappy after those sessions and we were seeing no improvement. ( at one stage the psychotherapist even remarked that there was really nothing that could be done to help her).We really didn't know what to expect from Katy, but straight away she made us all feel comfortable and at ease. After the first session when we arrived to pick up our daughter we saw her smiling and relaxed, she looked so good. The next few days she was much happier within herself, and even wanted to socialise and have fun. Since the first session she has not cut once, and we are seeing improvements daily. We know it is still early days, however this behaviour is really encouraging, and it is great to see our daughter starting to like herself again. Shane and Linda Bradshaw

I saw Katy in November for help with grief. I was worried about Christmas and coping for my children after losing my husband earlier on in the year. Katy helped me to push aside my grief and allow the happiness back in. Christmas was fantastic with many happy memories shared and thanks to Katy we started a brand new tradition this year. I honestly don't think that I would've coped without Katy's help and understanding. Thank you, love Em

I came to Katy looking for self improvement and self esteem. I wanted to grow and develop into the successful business woman I knew was inside me waiting to come out. Katy was able to identify what areas I needed to work on and gave me tools and support to help me implement my ideas. I learned more about myself through my sessions with her than I ever knew before, and I was very pleasantly surprised by the progress I made in a short amount of time. I saw Katy 2 years ago, and can happily report that I am now very successful and my business has flourished since I began implementing the tools I was given by Katy. I'm very grateful for her time and the support that she provided and I can not recommend her highly enough. Thank you Katy.


I saw Katy via SKYPE for 3 sessions 8 months ago.  I had had some trouble controlling my weight and wanted to lose 10 kilo's. Katy was recommended to me by a colleague, and The sessions were very helpful. I have lost 15 kilo's, and couldn't be happier

Michaela Gill

I came in to see Katy just over a year and a half ago, I wanted to lose weight to have a baby. My doctor had advised that reason I could not get pregnant was because I was too fat. Katy made me feel calm and dealt with my nerves quickly. she was so friendly and funny that I felt relaxed pretty much straight away. She did a weight loss session with me, and asked me to return to deal with my lack of self worth. I had 2 sessions with Katy and lost 20 kg over the next 6 months. When I got pregnant I was soo excited, I rang Katy before I rang Matt. She was so happy for me. Our son was born a few weeks ago healthy and beautiful. I cannot recommend Katy enough for everything she has done for me and my family
Leonie Hariss

When I first went to see Katy I was scared about telling someone I had never met before my personal information and what was going on in my life, it made me extremely uncomfortable. Being a Teenager and all I thought that I would get judged and be very embarrassed, just like past councilors have made me feel, but Katy is different, she made me feel better about myself. I feel a lot stronger and more confident in myself then ever before. Thanks Katy
I turned 40 this year. I have never been really fat, but for most of my life I have been trying to lose weight. I knew all about eating healthy and have tried various food regiments, including eating macrobiotic, vegetarian, vegan and raw. In the past few years I also started exercising more, doing a lot of aerobics, exercise machine training and lately running. At one point I was running one hour every day, which brought on problems with my back, but never made me lose one gram of fat! I was working so hard, but to no avail. I was frustrated. When I came across Katy Bird Hypnotherapy, I decided to give it a try. One last try. When I started, I lost 3 kg in the first 4 weeks. This was unheard of! Over the past 20 years I hadn’t managed to lose ANY weight even though I was exercising more than anybody I knew! In total, I lost more than 9kg and 38cm! Thank you Katy for helping me achieve my goals

I saw Katy some years ago now after being referred to her by my doctor. He suggested that she might be able to help me get some control over my anxiety. At the time my life seemed not worth living anymore. I was avoiding everything and even leaving my house to go shopping was becoming almost impossible. It was even hard for me to spend time with my friends or family anymore. After a couple of sessions with Katy, I started to feel like I could do things, she helped me understand my anxiousness, and she helped me to forgive myself for being afraid. Most of all Katy made me want to live my life again. I saw Katy a total of 6 times, and she helped me get my life back, she was always patient and caring as she guided me back to my path. I would recommend Katy to anyone that is struggling with anxiety, I can't thank her enough for what she has done for me and for my family. I called her last week after the death of a loved one, and she talked with me for ages, I felt better after just hearing her voice. She has true gift and if you're lucky enough to get in to see her, she will change your life too
Margaret Williams

I definitely recommend � Katy knows soooo much about sooooo much! I was in very safe hands with a well qualified and experienced professional. I felt welcomed and comfortable. I learned things about myself that really surprised me. Incredible sessions but you don't realise until later just how incredible! Thank you Katy �
Michelle Ballantyne

I saw Katy for my weight, id done weight watchers and had got to goal, but over the last 12mths it had been creeping back on. A friend had liked her site and it got me thinking this could be the answer, no more counting points, being happy and finding me! Its only been a couple of weeks, no more scales for me, i have found me again and love it, i am more confident, more assertive and do take time for myself. I absolutely recommend Katy. Thank you Katy for your help!

About three and a half years ago my beautiful wife under a lot of stress had a breakdown.
She had depression and anxiety so bad she could not leave the house or function in any way, tried to suicide multiple times.
The public health system just made her worse and and the private psychiatrist could manage to stop her from being suicidal to a point but not get her to function again.
18 months of going to doctor after doctor and anything else we could think of clutching at straws trying to find something to get her better but nothing had any effect.
I had to leave work and was her carer for 12 months and could not leave her alone for more then an hour or so for fear she might hurt herself.
We were looking down a deep dark hole and with a 2 year old daughter it was the scariest time of my life and then a we found out about Katy Bird and still clutching at straws thought why not give hypnotherapy a go.
After the 2nd visit with Katy her suicidal thoughts went away and 4 more I had my beautiful energetic wife back and our little girl had her loving mother back.
Katy could have strung us a long for months and I would have gladly payed but being an honest person said I've done all I can do and what I have put in place will kick in when you start feeling down and she was right, my wife still has bad days but gets past them with what Katy has done for her.
We were very sad to see Katy leave Horsham and I said to my wife we should have caged this Bird lol. Thank you Katy for giving us our lives back and most importantly giving our little miss her beautiful mother back, your the greatest.
Warmest regards,
Michael Currie

Wendy Lawson

Hi Katy, Hope this finds you well and I hope everything is going well for you. Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know that I am still going strong and I am still in the right zone. For the last 5.5 months we have been going through a very stressful time with the business, and the emotional feelings about food started to come back... but then  something clicked and I just got right back on track. Thankyou so much for all that you have helped me to achieve - it has been greatly appreciated, take care of you and I hope to chat soon

I had 2 lessons with Katy and loved it. Very comfortable in the environment she provided, as I was a bit hesitant. It was easy and would highly recommend her to anyone considering hypnosis.
Toni Fontaine
I just thought I would check in to say I am now 18 days smoke free since the only one appointment I had with Katy on the 4/1/17 I was a long term smoker 40 yrs I smoked right up til my app time which was 2.15 pm and never had a smoke since I left appointment I will never go back to it now.
Lesley Irvine
Had my final appointment this morning and feel so much happier, stronger, fitter, confident & certainly healthier. If anyone is wavering do I or don't I , will Hypnotherapy work and you have depression, anxiety, any mental illness ring Katie now. It will work. You will get control of your life back with her help. I have and can only get even healthier. As I am not stressed I am not eating for comfort so a big bonus & with a little boost from Hypnotherapy my weight is slowly coming off. I haven't been able to move an ounce while I have been so stressed. Don't hesitate...become the person you want to be with Katie's help.
Thanks does not seem enough for the changes you have helped me achieve Katie but "Thank you!"

Heather Bell
I would like to give a update months after seeing katey. She said I was going to have a better life than I have before i got sick as my old life didnt work for me. She was right i have no depression etc and just started a new job in personal care at the age of 46 something i have always wanted to do and kicking goals every week and planning for the future. I can honestly say that if I hadn't found katey i wouldn't have had a future i would have ended up taking my own life so there really is light at the end of the tunnel i carnt thank katey enough.

Jenny currie

Carol Elliott
Thanks Katy. It has changed my whole life and the way I relate to food and exercise. i am happier and healthier, with so much more energy since our sessions for weight loss. I am losing weight with ease and making healthier choices.
Rosina Anderson
I have never had hypnotherapy before and after just the first session with Katy have had absolutely amazing results that I still can't believe!!! Highly recommend you give it a go, might just be the change you need in your life like me...

Kate Hair
Although being a true sceptic, I went to see Katy with an open mind to the process. What a powerful, rewarding and professional experience! I have learnt a lot about myself and am seeing the effective changes in my life from the two sessions I had. I would recommend Katy Bird Hypnotherapy, I mean what have you got to lose? The mind is a very powerful thing.......
Sarah Kelm
Katy is lovely, she made me feel at ease straight away and I didn't feel uncomfortable once. I have never tried hypnotherapy before so I had no idea what to expect and right off the bat we had a giggle about societies stereotypes of hypnosis. (*) (*) (*) (*) (*)
