Hypnotherapy for Insomnia

Has sleeping become a problem for you?

Did you know there are two types of insomnia: Onset insomnia is when we can’t get to sleep, and maintenance insomnia is when we can’t stay asleep.

We spend around 1/3 of your lives sleeping, so it really is essential from both a physiological and psychological perspective we get the right amount of sleep that’s just right for you.

More than 30% of the population suffers from insomnia and women are twice as likely to be affected.

Groups of people most effected by insomnia are:

  • Women

  • Adults over 65 years of age

  • People with mental health issues

  • People suffering from stress.

In the UK alone up to 7.9 million people rely on alcohol to get to sleep, this is counter intuitive as alcohol can cause poor quality sleep and duration.

Common Causes of Insomnia Are:

  • Stress

  • An upsetting or traumatic event

  • Changes to your sleep habits, like sleeping in a hotel or new home

  • Physical pain

  • Jet lag

  • Certain medications

Symptoms of Insomnia are:

  • Difficulty falling asleep at night

  • Waking up during the night 

  • Waking up too early 

  • Not feeling well rested after a night’s sleep

  • Irritability, depression, or anxiety

  • Difficulty paying attention, focusing on tasks, and experiencing poor memory.

  • Increased errors or accidents.

  • Ongoing worries about sleep.

  • Weight issues

  • Weakened immune system 

‘’ Studies show that we should have entered a sleep state within 1-20 minutes of your head hitting the pillow. If you fall asleep within 5 minutes you are sleep deprived; if it takes more than 30 minutes, you could be suffering from insomnia”

Hypnotherapy works by helping to reset the sleep cycle, ensuring your sleep environment is conducive to a good quality sleep, along with installing self-hypnosis to allow you to get the right amount of sleep that both your mind and body naturally needs.
