It depends on what you mean by "self-hypnosis". If you mean, as you suggest, relaxation therapy, then my experience has been that it can indeed be very helpful ( and both cheaper and more useful than sedatives and tranquillizers ). That much is estalished, Whether it can actually then involve reprogramming the brain's irrational thinking habits, I don't know - if you feel CBT can't yet get a grip on that, then on your own, relaxed or not, you're not likely to do any better with that particular project
CBT can help in this sort of situation, though maybe would be easier once the AD's become more helpful.
