Do you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night? Perhaps you struggle to settle down for a decent night’s sleep? Do you find it difficult to sleep as work troubles start to go through your mind?
If the answers to any (or all) of these questions is a resounding ‘yes’ then Solution Focused Hypnotherapy may be helpful for you!
A course of sessions, each lasting an hour, is designed to help ease insomnia and help clients have a more restful night’s sleep.
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 properly.
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 give closure to our day and help to clear the stress we may have accumulated. However, if there is too much stress you may find yourself waking up and being unable to go back to sleep!
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy works by encouraging more positive thinking so reducing the stress levels someone may be experiencing through problems at work or relationship-based issues.
Each session lasts for an hour and contains around 25 minutes of hypnosis which encourages Rapid Eye Movement to occur for the client – so allowing the ‘stress bucket’ levels to drop. In turn, over a period of time, the client should start to see their sleep patterns improve.
Within the initial consultation a Relaxation CD is given, which can make a real difference because people can take an aspect of therapy home with them to listen to while falling asleep at night. This can help someone to relax and be less tense, which in turn can help and support working towards a quality night’s sleep.
