About Me

Cathy McCarney – Qualifications and Experience

 Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, Transformational Hypnotherapist and Empowerment Coach

Cathy McCarney. As a highly experienced Psychotherapist and Empowerment Coach, I work with both children and adults.

From Stress Management and Anxiety Management; Cognitive Therapy for Depression; Family Coaching Programmes; Mindfulness Programmes and Empowerment Coaching in Schools and Confidence Building Programmes; there is something for everyone.  For all Local People and Schools and communities in the

Warwickshire, Kenilworth and Coventry areas.

I was compelled to become a therapist, as a testament to my own progress, on the path toward healing negative emotions, anxieties and fears. I was also lucky to meet and work with a number of great mentors in my time, who have all helped me individually, to discover the powerful tools and strategies I use today. Each of which continue to help me grow and evolve, allowing me to achieve my own emotional freedom and inner peace. It was from there that I started to take an interest in the field of psychology and behaviour therapy. It soon became a passion and I decided to continue exploring and studying several approaches to improving mental, emotional, psychological and physical happiness.

My training and qualifications as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, and Transformational Hypnotherapist, allowed me to branch out, and learn and develop new skills in Empowerment Coaching, which has become the driving force of my business, with opportunities to work with the most wonderful inspirational people, whose strengths continually surprise and humble me. 

 In 2016 I created a new Programme, The Anxiety2Amazing Programme, which took me a year to develop to a high standard. I feel a great passion towards this programme, because it comes from my soul. I launched the programme in 2017, and I am very proud of it and the successful results it brings for both young people and adults.  So much so, that I learn even more from my clients as I go along, so my programme is continually growing and evolving.  New projects are opening up all around it, new ideas keep making shape, new opportunities for Communities and schools to get involved

The Passion that Drives Me

When I was very young I suffered from acute anxiety myself, and faced many difficult challenges. In those days there were not therapists like myself around who you could turn to for help.  So I had to learn to deal with them myself. I became determined that those challenges would not stop me doing the things I wanted to do in my life.  And although my anxieties were always there, I have been honoured to know and work with some inspirational mentors, who were invaluable to me at the time. This enabled me to build my own self confidence, from which enabled me to build some wonderful experiences and opportunities, that allowed me to grow and evolve in my own right.

In fact, I have had to face some of my greatest challenges even more recently in my own life. Challenges which have massively tested my own Mental Happiness and Resilience in many ways. Those life experiences gave me a powerful insight into how important emotional freedom was in going forward. They enabled me to not just be truly compassionate and empathetic of my own clients challenges, but to have a true understanding of their anxieties and experiences first-hand. 

Over the last 20 years of working as a psychotherapist, I can now say that where I am now, and what I do, is even more powerful and meaningful than before.  The Anxiety2Amazing Programme itself,  is a revolutionary intervention which uses Empowerment Coaching at the very front, and introduces powerful methods of change through Transformational Hypnotherapy.  Each session brings practical exercises and  simple but effective techniques, that empower you and build your resilience. An amazing journey towards Emotional Freedom. Once you have mastered the techniques and strategies you discover in this programme, you will be astonished as to why you have never used them before! .

My Mission

My Mission, is to enable you to bring out the Absolute Amazingness in everything you think and do. Whatever age you are, whatever stage you are in in your life.  So that you have the ability and knowledge to develop your experiences with a greater resilience. Expanding your awareness at every level, which allows you to go beyond what you ever thought was possible. Each step allows you to develop your own inner skills, and unlock your winning formula , so you can be the person you want to be; do anything you want to do; go anywhere you want to go; and Live the life you want to live.
There is no Greater Guarantee of a more competent and confident you, than when you are moving towards your dreams, goals and passions, with a stronger self-belief.

And this programme really works! Because I continually measure this, through all the motivational work I do, day to day, week to week, month to month. The results it produces are the testament to its own success…..…..I am proud of Creating Champions who are equally proud to say “It’s Okay to be Me” And those Champions are going on to teach others to do it for themselves! Now that’s AMAZING!

My passion in my work on this programme, also enabled me to study the skills of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), so I could produce even more excellent results,  which effectively helped me to move beyond just helping others to find solutions. The programme itself works from the core to give you the cure. But it also needs you to be fully committed in doing all the exercises provided, to play the empowerment recording once a day,  and to let go of the past for good.
