CAN HYPNOSIS HELP WITH INSOMNIA?
Yes! Hypnosis is extremely effective for sleep disorders.
A sleep disorder /sleep disturbance can result in anxiety (a dread of going to bed, worry that you 'know' you won't get to sleep), exhaustion, daytime fatigue, an inability to focus, short temper, anger, a feeling of losing control and addiction to sleep medications or stimulants (taken to keep the body going even though it’s exhausted). Is your sleep disturbance depressing you? Do you feel unable to relax, stop and/or unwind?
Sleep problems can present as insomnia, hyper-somnias (excessive sleepiness) or parasomnias (nightmares, sleep-walking etc) and they can all result in distress and anxiety for the person experiencing it.
Those who suffer with sleep problems may find it to be a temporary problem, a regular experience triggered by increased stress or one which has been with them since childhood.
Sleep problems often cause concern about the daytime consequences: daytime fatigue, impact on functioning (rather than insomnia itself); mixed anxiety and depressive features or impact on mood (e.g. irritability)
Hypnotherapy can help you to conquer problems causing your sleep disturbance, it will help to remove your sleep anxiety and re-establish a regular sleeping habit.
A hypnotherapy session is extremely relaxing and peaceful and a 15 minutes hypnosis session is the equivalent to 4 hours deep sleep!
Though sleep is called our best friend, it is a friend who often keeps us waiting!
