This disc has changed my life. I have struggled with anxiety, night terrors, and phobia at being alone at night for years. I have tried cognitive therapy (which helped, but required weekly sessions which became too costly to maintain, and it did not have the immediately, complete, results I experienced with the medical hypnosis), and multiple anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications over the past 15 years. I purchased this disc and after listening to the informative first disc, and only one hypnosis session on the second disc (and I believe I fell asleep after 5 minutes), I was able to sleep completely through the night without any anxiety attacks. This is the first for me in so many years. I have continued to complete a session each evening before bed, and each night I do so, my anxiety attacks and night terrors do not appear. I am still trying to come to full understanding that this is real, that finally after all these years I am able to sleep through the night after utilizing the mind-body connection and hypnosis techniques on this disc. The impact was so immediate and complete I can honestly not beleive it myself, even though it is happening to me! I highly recommend this to anyone who suffers from anxiety or phobias. I have also found now after a little over a week of use, that I am handling other daily stresses in life, such as demanding items at work, with greater ease and clarity. This is an amazing solution to anxiety and I thank Dr. Gurgevich for his work and sharing this tool with others, it has truly changed my life.

This CD has been immensely helpful. I've suffered panic attacks for years and it has given me practical tools for dealing with it. I highly recommend it.

This is an excellent CD for anyone suffering with anxiety or panic attacks. On the first CD Dr Gurgevich explains everything there is to know about anxiety and panic. He talks about his own experiences with panic attacks and how he overcame them. I've been experiencing frequent anxiety attacks and it was very comforting to hear Dr G. talk about his own experiences and how alone one can feel when experiencing them. My first reaction was to shout "YES!... that's exactly how I've been feeling!" And I felt a sense of relief hearing that the cause and the antidote are one and the same...the mind.
The second CD has four hypnosis sessions. The first session is for everyday use and practice. It contains a wonderful progressive relaxation exercise. The second session is a practice session for future events that might cause anxiety, and the rehearsing of relaxation responses to replace the anxiety when the event arrives. In the third hypnosis session, Dr G guides the listener through an induction technique using the 4-7-8 breathing technique. This is a breathing exercise that was developed by Dr. Andrew Weil, it is most effective for calming the body's reaction to stress and anxiety... and what a wonderful induction method as well. The fourth hypnosis session is a fast acting session that produces an immediate sense of calmness, peace, and comfort within.
I've been practicing the self-hypnosis sessions every day and have found them to be very effective in relieving anxiety. I highly recommend this CD.

Pretty good CD though not for using to fall asleep. Most of the meditations require you to be alert. Easy to use and the different tracks let you pick and choose based on time.
