Sleep

Do you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night? Perhaps you struggle to settle down for a decent night’s sleep?  Hypnotherapy is designed to help with insomnia and help have a more restful night.

All of us have a metaphorical stress bucket that can easily fill. The more stress we experience, the bigger the load we carry, which can have a negative impact on our emotional wellbeing and our ability to sleep well.

When you start to sleep, your brain enters a specific state of Rapid Eye Movement, which is often referred to as REM. In very simple terms, this state often allows us to empty our ‘stress buckets’, but if there is too much in your ‘bucket’, you may find yourself waking up and being unable to go back to sleep.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works by increasing positive experience and reducing levels of stress, as each session of hypnosis encourages Rapid Eye Movement to occur which is the waking version of REM – so allowing your ‘stress bucket’ level to drop. In turn, over a period of time, you should start to see sleep patterns improve.
