General Wellbeing and Self-Care

My name is Angie Doig-Thorne and I am a Stress Therapist and Weight Loss Specialist based in York.  I have been practicing as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and EFT Practitioner for 11 years now.  I work with people suffering with anxiety or stress, panic attacks, low self esteem, lack of confidence, anger management, weight loss, stopping smoking – and the list goes on.  

Hypnotherapy is one of the most effective ways to create new behaviours to override old unwanted habits and behaviours. Below is a link to my FAQs page which possibly answers the most common questions.

Hypnotherapy FAQ’s with York Hypnotherapist

I encourage people to change their mindset and take back control of their thoughts, emotions and actions so that they can live the life they want to live.  Self care is something we all need to do and it is a necessity not a luxury.

What is self-care? 

Taking action to look after, maintain and improve your own health and wellbeing at any time.  This could include having a good sleep routine; eating a good healthy diet, taking regular lunch breaks, staying hydrated and ensuring you do some form of exercise on a daily basis.  You should also aim to get outside whenever you can.  Self-care also means taking sick leave if you are ill, don’t struggle on as you won’t perform as well and it may take you longer to return to good health.

What Can You Do to Help Yourself

Make sure you talk to someone if you are not feeling well mentally (anxiety, feeling stressed or undue worrying about things).  Talk to a friend or family member – sharing your thoughts with someone else can make it easier to cope with.  Look at online support; different networks can be a good way to get help if you don’t want to speak to close to you.

Look after your appearance. Keep an eye on your weight, are you under weight, overweight or just right for you.  Don’t be sucked into to unnecessary dieting or binge eating – feeding your emotions. Chocolate, food and alcohol are not your mates, or an emotional crutch – food is nourishment and fuel for your body.


You can’t pour from an empty glass. Take care of yourself first.

Learn to be kind to yourself, stop the negative self-defeating talk and develop a positive mindset.  You deserve to be happy and hopeful about the future and live a fulfilled life.  Try different forms of relaxation and mindfulness to help you feel calmer and more in control of you thoughts and emotions. Eating a healthy diet with the right nutrients will give you optimal energy and help to regulate your moods. Daily exercise is beneficial to you mentally and physically, by getting your heart rate elevated and being slightly out of breath (brisk walking, gardening, housework, gym classes etc.).

But I Have a Partner, Kids and or Parents to look after!

We put ourselves at the bottom of our list of priorities. However, if you are not fit and healthy – how will you be able to care for others?  As I have said many times – Self Care is not a luxury, it is a necessity.

“In 3 words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: It goes on”.

To sum things up – your thoughts belong to you, they impact on your emotions (how you feel) which impact on how you act or react.  Change your mindset and change your life.
