In brief: Dreams
I teach a class, No More Nightmares, with an original theory I developed, Planned Dream Intervention.
Learning this skill teaches the sleeping brain that there is no such thing as a bad dream, so you end up sleeping through your dreams and the dream content changes over time. This is a 2hour class, not psychotherapy, and is a skill that you learn and have forever. You can contact me for more in
