There is nothing better than a good nights sleep, but for insomnia sufferers this can seem an elusive goal. Sufferers may experience difficulty getting to sleep, or may fall asleep only to wake in the early hours and be unable to get back to sleep.
Although not in itself an illness, insomnia is linked with physical complaints such as high blood pressure, stroke, and obesity, and can accompany psychological conditions such as anxiety and depression. Of course, a lack of sleep can also leave us feeling fatigued, lacking energy and unable to concentrate.
If you are suffering from insomnia, always see your GP in the first instance to rule out any medical conditions which may be disturbing your sleep.
Hypnotherapy for insomnia focusses on:
Exploring the current issues which may be causing you to have sleepless nights
Resolving any deeper issues which may have triggered the insomnia
Changing your thought patterns to reduce the stress of insomnia
Learning ways to relax and reduce mental "chatter"
Learning the skills of self hypnosis that you can use at home to help you sleep
In some cases just one or two sessions of hypnotherapy may be enough to help you learn how to relax and improve the quality of your sleep. Where there are more complicated issues, more sessions may be required.
