Hypnotherapy For Sleep

Sleep serves many vital functions, both physically and mentally. If you're deprived of the sleep you need, your body may not have time to complete the phases of sleep needed for muscle repair, memory consolidation and release of hormones regulating growth and appetite. Not only do you wake up feeling tired, but you are also less prepared to concentrate, make decisions, or engage with the day ahead. Long term it can lead to burnout, and spiral into further mental health problems. We know that sleep is important, sometimes though, it isn't as simple as getting to be earlier; problems sleeping can often deteriorate into a vicious cycle of worry, anxiety, insomnia and exhaustion.

Why is sleep important?


Sleep is an essential function and impacts every area of our wellbeing. During sleep our brain is very active, and cycles through various stages of Rapid Eye Movement (REM/dreaming) and Non-REM sleep. Each stage is tailored to restore a different cognitive or behavioural function, for example, Stage 3 Non-REM sleep refreshes the body, and REM sleep converts recent, emotional experiences into filed-away memories. Each cycle lasts between an hour and a half to two hours, and most healthy adults sleep for seven to nine hours each night. If you frequently experience sleeplessness this will, over time, impact your physical and mental functioning, as well as your ability to fight disease. Chronic lack of sleep has been linked to numerous health conditions including poor mental health, obesity, diabetes, and even heart disease and stroke. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help improve sleep patterns, leading to better overall health.

What are signs of a sleeping disorder?

While we all may experience some of these symptoms occasionally, having them frequently might mean you have a sleep disorder:

  • Difficulty falling or staying asleep
  • Feeling tired all the time, and frequent napping
  • Irregular breathing
  • Restless limbs
  • Irregular sleep patterns

How can Hypnotherapy improve your sleep?

Trouble sleeping often has its roots in stress and anxiety, though it is worth contacting your GP if you think you have a sleep disorder. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help, not merely by sending you off to sleep in a session, but by giving you a better understanding of why you are experiencing difficulty sleeping. I'll then help you to change your thought patterns around sleep, giving you tools and strategies to reduce stress and anxiety, and to take control of selecting healthier life choices to optimise better sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Online Hypnotherapy work for sleep?

Online hypnotherapy is very effective for anxiety related conditions. In fact, some people prefer working online with their therapist because they are more relaxed and comfortable in their own space or home. Also, there is no need to travel to see your therapists because online hypnotherapy is just as effective as working face to face. You also have flexibility because our sessions can take place wherever you are in the world via Zoom, and I often work with clients based in the US, Europe and around the world from my UK practice.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works for anxiety by combining positive talking therapy and coaching with hypnosis. During the first half of the session, we talk and avoid past problems, and instead focus on the future. You're encouraged to think and express yourself in a positive way which helps you to reduce your anxiety. Because hypnotherapy is a brain-based therapy, you'll also learn how the brain works in relation to your issues, but importantly what can be done to help you make changes to stop the cycle of anxiety so you can regain control and feel better.

Hypnosis reduces anxiety by using guided relaxation techniques to calm your body and mind. As you listen to your therapist, you will be guided into a relaxed state of focused attention by asking you to imagine certain things. Positive suggestions are made to help you make changes subconsciously by encouraging a shift in perspective. It allows your mind to reflect on the ideas and solutions discussed during our session to understand how they can help you.

What happens at an initial consultation?

The initial consultation and assessment is one of the most important sessions, the beginning of real focus and change. Together we'll explore what you want to achieve and how many sessions may be required. I'll explain how hypnotherapy works and I'll briefly explore how the mind works in relation to your issues and how if you're willing to make changes, hypnotherapy can help you achieve your goals. You'll also receive a complimentary guided hypnotic relaxation audio track to listen to at home which sets the wheels in motion for your subsequent sessions.

What's the difference between Sleep Deprivation and Insomnia?

Insomnia refers to your ability to sleep adequately, either in length or quality, despite the opportunity to sleep. So even if you're willing to sleep, tucked up in bed nice and comfortable , insomnia keeps you awake wondering when you'll drift off. Whereas sleep deprivation is where externally imposed restrictions on your opportunity to sleep. Whether you work late, you have children that need attending to during the night or you're just not allowing yourself enough time to sleep. Whatever the reason may be, it all plays apart on your lack of sleep and preventing you from functioning at your best. So, it is important to spot the warning signs and issues which could lead to insomnia.
