We all need sleep. The body demands it and so does the mind and it is essential for good health. Sleep is crucial as it repairs the body ready for the day to day pressures of life. Yet some people find it hard to get to sleep or stay asleep, or find their mind is going round in circles worrying about things, such as your job, the children, the mortgage or just thinking…then hypnotherapy can help. Not getting enough sleep will impact your life, your work, your relationships, and your health. It can cause fatigue, poor concentration and memory, mood disturbances, impaired judgment and reaction time, and poor physical coordination. A short-lived bout of insomnia is generally nothing to worry about, however chronic sleep loss is of concern, as it can contribute to health problems such as increased stress levels, high blood pressure, anxiety, pain and a decline in the immune system.
Some consequences of insomnia can include:
• Social isolation, avoidance
• Reduced Self-Esteem
• Frustration with self
• Constant worry about not sleeping
• Lowered confidence
• Humiliation and embarrassment
• Poor memory and concentration
• Anger problems
Hypnotherapy techniques to control and overcome those behaviors that prevent sleep from occurring are applied to help you to discover the causes, rather than just working with the symptoms. This is done by using a person centred approach. This therapy can be implemented to help you to retrain your mind and body to rest, and allow sleep to occur naturally, so that you wake refreshed every day.
