Sleep is something everybody needs. It plays a vital role in both our physical and mental health. But, sleeping problems, such as insomnia, can make it difficult for some people to get enough sleep. As well as making you feel tired, lack of sleep can lead to physical illness and increase your risk of heart disease. Mentally, not getting enough sleep can lead to anxiety and can make it hard for you to concentrate.
While some sleeping problems will have an obvious cause, others may not. Hypnotherapy for insomnia can be helpful if you are unsure why you are having difficulties sleeping. When suffering from insomnia for a long period of time, the patterns of sleep disturbances can become embedded in your subconscious. Hypnosis for insomnia aims to communicate with this and suggest positive changes.
These suggestions will look to break the negative thought patterns causing the problem. An important part of hypnotherapy for insomnia is teaching you how to relax. For some people, physical or mental tension can make sleeping difficult.
During the initial consultation, I will explain how the brain works. How we suffer in the way we do and what we can do about it. This explanation will help clients gain an understanding of why we feel the way we do and also helps clients identify how they want their lives to be in the future.
Subsequent weekly sessions will focus on positive, future visualisation and hypnosis.
Solution focussed hypnotherapy helps clients regain control of their lives and move forward positively and effectively. The effectiveness of the therapy relies on the clients motivation to make positive changes.
