I can relate to this a lot- I am a huge fan of Jon Kabbat-Zinn. I don't use his things to go to sleep, but to unwind in the evenings. He's great- I really like his books and there is a long video online of him giving a talk/explaining more about mindfulness and meditation. Worth checking out :)

Mindfulness Meditation is a great option for this and most likely what you Doctor was pointing to - it has been largely spread by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and I would most definitely check out a few of his books, very popular is his "Full Catastrophe Living".

The state of overanalayzing a certain situation thinking we're doing something good buy in reality heightening the problem is called rumination - and meditation practice has been found to be the most powerful tool to break down this habit.

If you wish to give Mindfulness Meditaiton a shot I have a guided audio meditation that you can download from my website blog.

A great benefit is as well the ability to settle down your mind and relaxing your body and breath before going to sleep - which will in essence give you a more restful sleep, providing a deeper REM dreamless state.

Explore some Mindfulness Meditation Therapy clinics in your area as well, and learn from a seasoned professional for best growth in the practice.

Goodluck!
