Hypnotherapy for Insomnia
If you suffer from insomnia you are not alone. It is estimated that 1 in 3 people in the UK at some time find it difficult to fall asleep, wake in the night or lie awake for long periods during the night. But what happens when it goes on and on. We all need sleep to function at our best.
Exhaustion, agitation and anxiety can be a daily experience for any insomniac who has the desire for a good night’s sleep. This is often at the forefront of most sufferers’ minds. A lack of sleep can hinder what we can do during the day, affect our moods and then get worse and worse as bedtime approaches. It can affect anyone and lead to all kinds of health problems if it continues for too long.
Finding a long-term solution to sleep problems
Sometimes life is tough. We worry about what has happened, or what could happen and it is these thoughts that can stop us from falling asleep at night. Then, just to make things worse you begin to worry about whether you are going to be able to fall asleep or not.
The first thing you need to do is learn how to control or change the thoughts that appear in your mind before going to bed at night or when you wake up during the night. Most of the people I have helped with insomnia have tried countless ways to sleep, from relaxation techniques, watching television, reading or having a hot drink before bedtime – but nothing worked until those thoughts were changed.
Using hypnotherapy to sleep again
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind allowing direct communication with your subconscious mind but it also allows us to relax those thoughts that have become stuck in your mind whenever you try to go to sleep or wake during the night. Learn how to relax your mind and you will learn how to sleep again.
Sleep affects your health and finding the underlying cause why you struggle to get to sleep may be necessary, but not always. Sometimes it is a matter of teaching your mind how to develop a better and healthier sleep pattern and calming your mind before you go to bed at night, every person is different.
