Insomnia

It is believed that over a third of the population suffer with sleeping problems according to the NHS.

It may be the case that you may have:

  • Problems getting to sleep
  • Waking during the night and struggle to get back to sleep.
  • Waking up to early in the morning and failing to resettle.

Stress and anxiety are common causes of insomnia, and also depression.

Lack of sleep over a period of time can effect us negatively with fatigue, irritability, reduced problem solving skills, lack of motivation, inability to cope with stress, weight gain and a reduced immune function.

Along with this, sleep is our time for learning and memory when we enter our REM (rapid eye movement) dream phases of sleep. Sleep is also when our body replenishes and repairs itself, and the ‘happy’ chemicals like serotonin and dopamine are restored. So it is vital that we get enought sleep, or we can suffer both physically and mentally. 

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy 

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can encourage and restore normal sleep patterns, by reducing the amount of stress and anxiety we perceive in our lives.

Commonly financial worries, health issues, stress at work, and relationship and family issues, can cause anxiety. Often the less sleep we are get, the worse they can seem.

In some cases it can be the dread of going to bed as we know we will lie there for hours, and we find ourselves in a grip of a vicious cycle. The more we agonise over it, the harder it will be to find that nice sleepy relaxed state.

Hypnotherapy can replicate the REM sequence, and the techniques learnt will aid a good nights sleep, and a clearer headed, refreshed, more motivated, happier you will  awaken in the morning after a good nights sleep.
