York Woman Sam Mason Smashes Anxiety and Depression!
I can’t quite believe the difference in how I feel now in comparison to how I felt when I had my first hypnotherapy with Angie back on the 13th of November. I was feeling massively overwhelmed, frantic and fed up. The overwhelm came from trying to do too much and letting work and family life get on top of me. This then led to feelings of low confidence, anxiety, frustration and worthlessness. I was so ‘busy’ that life felt like trying to plough through thick fog and even the simplest of tasks was monumental.
I’ve suffered from episodes of anxiety since I was 17. I’ve tried various types of therapies with some success but the overwhelm always manages to creep back and I’m back to square one. I’m very open to therapies so I wasn’t at all apprehensive about my first appointment with Angie but I was unsure what to expect.
Firstly, Angie’s treatment room is very comfortable and comforting with relaxing music. Angie was thorough when explaining to me how hypnotherapy works and what I should expect. We discussed at length how I was feeling and how I would like to feel. Angie asked me questions
from the PHQ-9 questionnaire and I scored a 22, which wasn’t great.
However, after the first hypnosis treatment, I left feeling wonderful. I felt a lightness that I haven’t felt in ages!
What I love about how Angie works is that she’s very matter of fact in such a positive way. There’s no uncertainty, Angie will help you and you will feel better. Angie is so passionate about her work and I felt confident in her company. Angie has helped me prioritise my day-to-day tasks and control my anxiety/mild depression with really practical and useful tools like EFT tapping, journaling and positive self-talk.
A great example of how my mindset has shifted –
In our first appointment, Angie told me to write a list each day with a maximum of 6 things that I needed to do that day. I internally scoffed; there was absolutely no way that I could only prioritise 6 things, I was far to busy and had so much to do.
Now, after 4 sessions, I struggle to write 6 things. I plan my day and I get through what I need to do and I feel so much calmer! I feel more alert, energised and most importantly, I feel happier.
In every session we’ve redone the PHQ-9 questionnaire and with each one, my score has decreased. My last score was 0; this is a huge testament to how much Angie has helped me!
I can’t thank Angie enough for all the help she’s given me and how much better I feel. I would recommend Angie to anyone who is struggling with anxiety/mild depression or, anyone who is feeling emotionally stuck, she works wonders! Thank You, Angie.
Louise – Severe anxiety and fear of travelling
I went to Angie for help as I had found myself starting to panic in situations both in and out of work, particularly when I had to speak in front of groups of people. It was getting progressively worse, to the point that I had started to avoid situations and felt I was missing out on opportunities.
Adam – stopping smoking
I came to see Angie as a last resort to stop smoking. I had tried everything from nicorette patches to e-cigarettes and nothing had worked. I wanted to be smoke free for health reasons and for the sake of my family and friends. It’s now been 5 weeks since my session and I haven’t touched a cigarette. I’ve gone from smoking 20+ a day to absolutely none. I still had cravings for a week or so after the Hypnotherapy session but I was in full control of them and was never close to lighting up a cigarette. My chest already feels better and I have more energy. My clothes and car don’t stink anymore either, so it’s positive all round.
Sarah – Phobia of needles & Hypno Birthing
Olivia Mae was born at 36 weeks and 2 days, weighing 7lbs 1 oz. I had my bloods done and a cannula in my hand…but I only did it on gas and air…. thank you.
Johnny – anxiety issues related to public speaking
I visited Angie for anxiety issues related to public speaking and giving presentations to groups of people. Following 4 sessions I have manged to overcome this issue and now feel relaxed and confident. Angie’s sessions enabled me to deliver an important presentation calmly and confidently that received good feedback, I would recommend these sessions to anyone with similar issues.
Tiziana – Fear of taking the underground
I went to see Angie at the beginning of January this year because, over the years, I had become more and more anxious, phobic and paranoid about taking the underground (no idea why!). I had an important work/study trip coming up in August in China and I knew I would have had to take the underground in a big city, in the heat and with thousands of people in it. The mere thought left me paralysed with fear and dread.
I had three sessions of hypnotherapy with Angie who was very professional, caring and understanding of my fears.
Finally the real “test” arrived when I had to take the metro in China, and when I did that I realised I had no fear or anxiety whatsoever. I felt calm and in control and it was just like taking a walk in the park. It was a marvellous feeling.
I cannot thank Angie enough and I would strongly recommend her and her hypnotherapy sessions for any form of phobia, fear or anxiety.
Jan From York – Hypnotherapy for teeth grinding & clenching jaw (Bruxism)
Hi Angie, just to let you know that I am no longer troubled by Bruxism or other related problems. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the help you have given to me. Although my emotional issues are less prominent in my life, hopefully they will become easier to deal with with the help and advice you have given to me. Thanks once again Angie, you are an absolute star!!!!. Also my muffin top is no more!! Jan
Stress related Hair Twiddling Testimonial
I visited Angie a to deal with a stress related issue, I have twiddled with my hair since I was a child and it got to the point where it was getting thinner and had stopped growing and one of my children had started to copy this habit. Although I have tried to stop for many years I have not been successful until I attended one 1 hour session with Angie. I am still amazed at what happened as the effect was immediate and not only have I not twiddled my hair I have had the added benefit of feeling calmer and more in control of other areas of my life.
David from York – Hypnotherapy
“I visited Angie to kick a 25 year smoking habit and also learn stress reducing techniques to improve my golf game. I’ve never smoked since and more importantly don’t feel the urge to smoke. I’ve also learnt how to preserve that all important golf Medal card when the going gets tough. All this after just two, one hour sessions.”
Mike, Brid – stop smoking testimonial
I just want to say thanks to Angie for helping me to stop smoking after I have failed so many times over the last 10 years. I tried patches, gum and medication and none of them worked. Not only have I quit a 25 cigarettes a day habit, but I am more relaxed and confident too. I have also saved enough money to go on holiday to America, something I have only ever dreamed about doing previously.

Caroline, York – Hypnotherapy for Acid Reflux
Martyn Turnbull – Hypnotherapy
“I have suffered with neck and restricted upper body movements for the last few years. Throughout this time I have spent a lot of money on physiotherapists, chiropractors as well as having to take anti-inflammatory tablets on a daily basis (just to get through the day), this was my normal daily life.
I believed the pain and restricted movement was down to a few old injuries catching up with me. That was until I decided to try Clinical Hypnotherapy with Angie.
After four sessions the tension in my neck and back had disappeared and the difference that hypnotherapy made to my working day is unbelievable. I am now playing sport again and I’ve stopped taking the anti-inflammatory tablets. This is an incredible find and I urge people to try this therapy with an open mind, it really does work. Many thanks Angie.”
Elizabeth Davies, York – Hypnotherapy
This is to confirm my complete satisfaction with the hypnotherapy treatment given to me by Angie Doig-Thorne, for relief of constant daily pain in my back and help with sleeplessness. In both instances I am very delighted with the results and would recommend both hypnotherapy and Angie very highly.
easi-birthing in York – Jane’s testimonial
When I became pregnant with my second child I decided that I wanted to use an alternative to the usual pain relief on offer at the birth. I decided to attend hypnotherapy sessions with Angie, as a friend had recommended her to me. I was a little nervous about the process but I found that Angie was very understanding and placed me at ease from the outset. She explained the process fully to me and I found that the 5 sessions that I attended really set me up for a far more relaxing birthing programme. I was able to have my son without additional pain relief, despite the fact that he was a 9 1/2 pound baby. I would have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Angie.
