Autogenic Training is effective therapy for the treatment of all psychological issues.

Research into Autogenic Training shows that it assists with the treatment of depression, anxiety, insomnia, panic attacks, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, anger management, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, self-harm, obsessive compulsive disorder, anorexia nervosa and bulimia, Tourette Syndrome, Tics and other disorders.

Studies have shown that clients who undertake Autogenic Training are often able to reduce or completely cease their intake of pharmaceutical medications for psychological conditions. For example, one study showed that research participants with an Anxiety Disorder who had been taught Autogenic Training had more positive treatment outcomes on average than those participants with Anxiety who had only relied on medication for their treatment of their Anxiety Disorder.

Autogenic Training is therapeutically powerful on its own, but in one-on-one therapy, Autogenic Training may be used as an adjunct to other forms of therapy such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

It is important if undertaking Autogenic Training for your Psychological Condition that you are trained by a Mental Health Professional (such as a Psychologist) who is also a qualified Autogenic Therapist.
