What causes insomnia and sleep problems
One of the most simple and obvious causes of insomnia is excess muscular tension and anxiety over sleeping combined with excessive thinking or worrying.
Too much tension in the skeletal muscles actually increases the amount of activity across the whole nervous system – including the amount and “speed” of our thinking. People with sleep issues may find it very difficult to fall asleep or get back to sleep because their nervous system is over aroused.
By learning how to relax the muscles and calm the mind – hypnotherapy can help you retrain your body to enter a more relaxed state so you can fall asleep quickly, stay asleep and wake up refreshed!
How common is insomnia?
Insomnia often co-exists with other issues and can sometimes be the main factor in keeping it going.
Someone with depression for instance might experience severe sleep disruption. This lack of sleep will cause fatigue which makes it far harder for the person to cope with and resolve their feelings of depression.
Developing a more natural sleep pattern can significantly help with depression and the same is true for many other issues. Growing clinical evidence also suggests that better quality sleep through expert hypnosis can:
- Reduce or sometimes completely resolve anxiety or panic symptoms
- Ease the discomfort of Fibromyalgia
- Help control food cravings and lose weight
- Lessen IBS pain
- Manage stress
There is no need for you to carry on taking sleep medication or spending yet more money on the latest sleep app or gadget. Hypnotherapy for insomnia helps your mind get back into doing what is was designed to help you do – sleep whenever you need to!
How can hypnotherapy for insomnia help?
A hypnotherapist can help identify the root cause of your sleep issue, whether it was caused by a past experience, relationship or just a stressful phase in your life.
Using a tried and tested blend of hypnosis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy For Sleep (CBT-I) and stress management techniques, hypnotherapy can help your mind associate sleep with relaxation and calm. You can release all that pent-up stress and exhaustion which will reduce your body’s stress hormone levels (Cortisol) and lower your adrenaline.
This means that both your mind and body can stop being on ‘red-alert’ and just relax instead.
