Insomnia.

Hypnosis to help InsomniaWhat is insomnia?

It’s now widely known that sleep is at the core of a healthy, happy life. When it goes wrong, everything suffers – your immune system, your mood, your memory, your relationships. It’s perhaps the most basic of needs after food and water.

Insomnia is repeated difficulty in getting to sleep, staying asleep or getting enough good quality sleep, despite adequate opportunity, which leads to some form of impairment of performance or wellbeing during the daytime. If it occurs regularly or over a long period of time, it’s called chronic insomnia.

About one in three adults will have had some sort of problem with insomnia within the past 12 months. For most the problem is fairly short-lived, but for as many as one in ten it becomes a chronic problem which significantly affects their life.

There are many different patterns of insomnia. For example, one in three people with insomnia have no problem getting off to sleep but then wake in the early hours and cannot get back to sleep.

At The Watford & District Hypnotherapy Centre We offer private therapy sessions Monday to Friday between 10:00 and 20:00 and Saturday mornings between 10:00 and 13:00

Sessions are on average 60 minutes in length and cost is £65.00.Specific number of sessions required is hard if not impossible to state as it is a very individual set of circumstances and responses that bring about the various issues, we offer a free of charge no obligation initial assessment at which we should be able to assess likely number of sessions required.

Causes of insomnia

A common trigger for sleeping difficulties is stress and worry. Some people are particularly vulnerable because they are more likely to show a more extreme response to stress, such as people who are depressed, chronically ill or struggling with other difficult issues such as relationship problems.

Other common causes include physical illness that causes pain, environmental noise, depression, shift work, caffeine or alcohol consumption, and medication side-effects. Other illnesses can disrupt sleep, such as menopausal hot flushes and urinary problems from infection or prostate disease causing night-time waking. Insomnia is much more common in older people.

Once triggered, sleep problems may then be perpetuated by the individuals beliefs and behaviours – they often worry excessively about the effect that inadequate sleep will have on them and so strive excessively hard to get to sleep, take daytime naps or sleep in late which can disrupt the natural rhythm, or turn to medicines or alcohol in the belief that this will help (most just induce unnatural patterns of sleep). A vicious cycle of poor sleep and stress is quickly set up and persists after the initial trigger has passed.

Insomnia contributes to excessive daytime tiredness, which in turn may be responsible for accidents, recurrent infections (inadequate sleep has been show to suppress the immune system), poor concentration, irritability, work and relationship problems and a general inability to cope. In children it may be linked to poor growth.

Treatment of insomnia

Sleeping tablets may be prescribed for short-term use only, when the cause of insomnia has been identified as  Griefbereavement or jet lag, for example.

However, it’s usually more important to address any underlying cause of the insomnia and attempt to restore a normal sleep pattern through changes in behaviour and lifestyle.

Deal with issues and anxieties which may keep you awake worrying. Make sure your bedroom is dark, cool and unstimulating Make sure your bed is comfortable and not too hot. Try to follow a set routine, going to sleep and getting up at the same time and avoiding daytime naps, and don’t work or watch TV in your bedroom. Recent research has shown that the effect of cooling on the body, and particularly the brain, such as following a bath, shower or hair washing, can induce sleep.

You should also try avoiding stimulants such as caffeine,nicotine and alcohol. Getting more exercise during the day, having a warm milky drink before bed, and herbs such as Valerian and camomile can also help.

Additionally the growing body of evidence to support the use of hypnosis techniques simply can not be ignored. Supplement this with items such as a NLP parts integration where “A part of me wants to sleep but a part of me is keeping me awake” along with working with a qualified Hypnotherapist is the first step and the use of hypnotherapy downloads such as offered on this site will certainly enable you to build a more resourceful state and have coping strategies in place so that when the needs arises you have a far more helpful “goto ” state than allowing your mind to run riot and keep you awake all night.

Remind your mind and body how to fall asleep naturally

If you are trying to cure insomnia, you have probably been trying for a long time. Most people we see with insomnia in our clinic have tried just about everything else before resorting to hypnosis.

But hypnosis is the obvious way to cure insomnia because it deals directly with the cause of the problem – lack of relaxation.

The Causes of Insomnia

Sleep is a delicate phenomenon – it cannot be forced, only encouraged; in fact, all we can really do is wait for it to happen by itself.

This makes it highly susceptible to disruption – as soon as the ‘waiting for sleep’ process becomes contaminated by anxiety, sleep becomes more elusive.

However, whatever else is contributing to insomnia, the ultimate cause is clear – lack of relaxation. If you relax completely at the right time of day you will fall asleep – it is as simple as that. This is why using hypnosis for insomnia makes so much sense.

But unfortunately it is not as simple as that for many insomniacs.

Years of conditioning plus the typical racing mind syndrome all contribute to making it feel as if an insomnia cure is impossible. But it’s not.

Give hypnosis a try today and you’ll see what we mean.
