My 12-year-old grandson is suffering from insomnia. When he closes his eyes, he sees very scary images, feels a lot of anxiety and stays awake most of the night. . .

Dear Belleruth,
My eight-year-old daughter is currently experiencing anxiety about being separated from me. She is anxious about school. She sometimes gets so upset that she gets physically sick, vomits, gets headaches, stomach aches, etc.

I am at a loss as to what would be best for her….

How do I get the guided imagery for PTSD that has the military-friendly language that Soldiers can relate to – you played it for the docs at the U of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine…

Question: I usually fall asleep while listening to guided imagery. I know you’ve mentioned that’s okay, and you tell us the messages are still getting in and that we can benefit from them. Can you explain how that works?
Thank you,

I have been experiencing anxiety and panic about my health, catastrophic thinking. I can’t seem to stop ruminating.

 I can’t seem to stop ruminating. Your anxiety/panic CD has been helpful. I’m wondering if you could recommend others that would help me get out of the catastrophic, ruminating thinking.

Thanks so much for doing these CD’s, and thank you for your help!

Question:

“OK what is mindfulness training & where can I get some?!!!  Yesterday at work I had a very stressful day, and by afternoon, I noted some definite cognitive deterioration…. couldn't hold a thought in my head. Please advise.”

Question:

BR,

I work with kids who are healing from burn trauma at a local children’s hospital burn center. Do you think imagery and relaxation could help with the itch problem in healing burn injury? The children do a great deal of damage scratching and complicate their recovery.

Question:

Dear Belleruth,

Thanks for making so many wonderful audio programs. I’m confused about the best way to use all the ones I want. I’m dealing with several different issues. Do I have to start with just one, or can I get all three of them and begin using them right away?

Thanks,

Danielle

Question:

I have yet to find a good guided visual imagery program for reducing uterine fibroids. I have more and more patients in my psychotherapy practice who are dealing with fibroids, wanting to do everything they can to reduce the fibroids and avoid surgery. (If they do need surgery, of course I immediately get them started on your CD for that!)

It would be enormously useful to have one of your guided visual imagery CDs for these women -- and as the baby boomers move toward and into menopause, there will certainly be more and more of them!

Thanks for all you have already produced, and always looking forward to more.

A man suffering from clinical depression and anxiety since the loss of his beloved wife two years ago, wonders if guided imagery can help him, along with the counseling he’s already getting. Here is his question and our answer:

Question:

I am taking EMDR with a counselor as part of grief treatment. I lost my beloved wife two years ago July. 

I have your excellent CD on cancer (I had a cancer scare myself, but am cancer-free, praise the Lord.)

What CDs or other materials do you recommend for grief?  I have suffered with clinical anxiety and depression because of my wife's death. Therapy has helped a lot, but I love guided imagery.
