Hypnotherapy for Insomnia


Everyone appreciates a good nights sleep but its likely that will all have trouble sleeping at some point in our lives. Sleep is not just about turning off and resting, however. Every night we need to have two different types of sleep, dream sleep, also called Rapid Eye Movement (REM), and slow wave sleep.

During slow wave sleep our body sets about doing its job of repairing tissues, brain cells are recharged and our immune system is refreshed. During dream sleep our brain sets about dealing with our thoughts and emotions.

Use of trance or hypnosis in hypnotherapy mimics Rapid Eye Movement dream sleep, when we process emotional memories and turn them in to narrative memories where we have more control over them.  Rapid Eye Movement sleep allows the experiences of the day to be processed, turning emotional memories and upsets into narrative memories over which you have control.

Both regular patterns of sleep and hypnotherapy help us resolve any worries, anxiety, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, stress and more. One of the most powerful and readily-observed phenomena when undertaking a course of hypnotherapy is that sleep patterns become more settled

If you’re struggling to get to sleep or are waking up in the middle of the night and can’t drift off again, hypnotherapy can help.
