Hypnosis and Insomnia
Hypnotherapy results differ from client to client and whilst we will try our best to help a client make changes the results are not guaranteed.
Most people at some point in their lives suffer insomnia or some other form of sleep disorder. This can be difficulty getting to sleep, or waking up too soon and being unable to get back to sleep, or even just sleeping restlessly. You may find that such problems start, or get worse, when you are busy or at times of stress and anxiety. Inability to sleep is worsened when you are experiencing anxiety and stress because it is hard to switch off from your thoughts.
You may also be worrying about the effects of having no sleep – this anxiety itself is enough to stop you from sleeping. The more you say to yourself “I have just GOT to sleep well tonight” the more tense you are about it, the more you constantly search for a solution the less likely you are to be able to get to sleep.
You do not need a lot of sleep. Many people can exist quite well on a reduced amount of sleep. Just don’t worry about it!
Even people who usually sleep well can find that they can’t get to sleep the night before an exam, or before an early start to get to the airport, or before a big occasion when they want to be at their best.
Hypnotherapy teaches you to switch off, to attain a deep state of relaxation, to focus away from stressful, anxious thoughts, and to let go and fall asleep.
What is involved?
Hypnotherapy uses the deep relaxation response to create a background feeling of drifting into sleep.
The visualisation sequences distract the conscious mind allowing the body to drift from Beta activity through to Alpha brainwaves which is light sleep, meditation or self hypnosis. Once in this state for a short period the body will then spontaneously go into the deeper Theta and Delta sleep levels.
Self-hypnosis is taught so that the sequence can be activated at will.
We reccomend starting with a Super Session that lasts up to 2 hours and covers in depth hypnotherapy for the issues and includes a session on mindfulness.
At the end of the session you will be given a recording of the session for further home use.
You can also start with a standard hypnotherapy session, if preferrred.
