Hypnotherapy for Insomnia

Most people have experienced a disrupted sleep and will know how it feels when you can’t seem to fall asleep. A bad nights sleep can leave you feeling irritable and drained of energy the next day. However people who suffer from insomnia experience these feeling regularly. The compounded effect of struggling to get enough sleep every night can lead to physical illness, an increased risk of heart disease and obesity.

Sleep is vital for physical and mental health.

Sleep is the best meditation

– Dalai Lama

Sometimes the cause of insomnia isn’t always obvious. Using various techniques, a hypnotherapist will communicate with your subconscious to uncover what may have triggered the sleeping issue. Once the cause is found, the hypnotherapist can begin a individually tailored treatment.

Part of hypnotherapy for insomnia is teaching you how to relax. Physical or mental tension can make sleeping difficult for some people. A hypnotherapist may use relaxation techniques, such as progressive muscle relaxation to help reduce tension.

Patterns of sleep disturbances can become embedded in your subconscious. Some people may start to build up expectations of a poor nights sleep and anxiety before trying to sleep. Anything related to the idea of sleeping can become associated with anxiety and negative expectations. Hypnosis for insomnia communicates by suggesting positive changes. These suggestions will aim to break the negative thought patterns causing the problem. Whilst dealing with any anxieties that may have built up around the idea of sleep.
