I emphasize the value of learning focusing techniques to help manage your mood. This Focusing on Feeling Good audio program was designed to teach you these skills and use them to focus on ideas and observations that can be helpful to you. It isn’t something you read. It’s something you do. There are eight sessions in this audio program including the initial session describing why you use self-focusing exercises to overcome depression. The remaining seven sessions address the common symptom patterns associated with depression.
Anxiety and depression typically occur together in adults. Professionals refer to this as “co-morbidity.” Learning to manage anxiety can be every bit as important as learning to manage your mood. To help in this endeavor, I have created an audio program called Calm Down that can help you develop specific skills in reducing and even preventing anxiety problems.

There are two sessions in this audio program. The first one is informational and provides an overview of insomnia and its relationship to the way you think and problem-solve. The second session provides a conversational hypnosis session for you to listen to, experience, and learn from while developing the ability to sleep well. The session is soothing, supportive and provides an easy path to follow into a good night’s sleep.
