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). There is even a method called “CBT-I,” or cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia. Dr. Lazarus often combines hypnosis as well as CBT strategies for individuals of all ages suffering from insomnia.
