You Don’t Have To Lose Sleep Over Insomnia
Hypnosis can be quite helpful in the treatment of insomnia. And, many patients with insomnia also have significant anxiety and/or depression. If the anxiety or depression is getting in the way of the patient’s life more than the insomnia is, then that needs to be addressed prior to learning self-hypnosis. Often, as the anxiety/depression improves, so does the insomnia.
The best treatment for anxiety or depression is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Dr. Lazarus often combines hypnosis as well as CBT techniques for these patients.
