Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been shown by research to be effective for treating many psychological conditions. CBT can help you learn to change thoughts and behaviors that aren't helpful to more healthy thoughts and behaviors so you feel better.
Biofeedback has been found to be effective for treating headache, arthritis, anxiety, insomnia, alcohol dependence and many other problems. Biofeedback can show you how your body reacts physically so you can alter your responses to decrease your pain, anxiety, etc.
Clinical hypnosis has been found to be effective for treating chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, IBS, IBD, and many other problems. Clinical hypnosis can help you alter your pain, so that you feel more comfortable. I am certified in clinical hypnosis by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis. I have two published papers on clinical hypnosis treating chronic pain.
Psychotherapy with clinical hypnosis and biofeedback helps decrease anxiety (general anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, OCD, PTSD). They can also help with habit disorders like hair pulling, skin picking or smoking. Psychotherapy, clinical hypnosis and biofeedback can help you re-gain a state of calm and resilience.
Psychotherapy with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-Insomnia is the gold standard for treating insomnia. I add to it clinical hypnosis and neurofeedback to help you fall asleep quickly and stay asleep.
Psychotherapy with clinical hypnosis has been shown to be effective for treating chronic pain to decrease the intensity of pain and how it may interfere with your life. My VA Hospital research Treating Chronic Low Back Pain with Hypnosis or Biofeedback is published. Clinical hypnosis has also been shown to be very effective for treating Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
