Hypnotherapy for Insomnia and Sleep

Sleep Easily with Hypnotherapy in Edinburgh

Falling asleep sounds easy, but in reality many of us struggle with it on a regular basis. At any given time, one third of us suffer with a sleep problem (Office for National Statistics); these include difficulty sleeping, nightmares, night terrors or sleep walking. 

We lay in bed tossing and turning, our minds preoccupied with worries and racing through lists of things to do. Minutes become hours and dawn approaches leaving us tired, frightened and irritable with reduced general health and sense of well-being. Our stress levels are often increased, creating a vicious cycle as our bodies struggle to relax. Another restless night followed by an exhausting day.

Understanding Sleeping Habits

Many people are reluctant to turn to medication for relief, worried about the possible side effects or have simply found it ineffective. Hypnotherapy is a very successful and fast method to overcome insomnia. It is totally natural and helps you to feel relaxed, calm and sleepy.

Your subconscious mind is the area of the brain that helps your body function and regulated many of your automatic behaviours. By helping you change the way this part of your mind approaches relaxation and sleep, hypnotherapy, through deep relaxation and visualisation techniques, can modify your old sleeping habits.

Areas that hypnotherapy and NLP can help:

  • Taking a long time to fall asleep
  • Waking frequently during the night
  • Unable to get back to sleep
  • Relying on medication or alcohol to aid sleep
  • Lacking energy and constantly feeling tired
  • Reluctance to get up in the mornings

Sleep will no longer seem to be that distant stranger but rather a welcoming close friend.

How Can Hypnotherapy Help With Lack of Sleep?

Imagining now, closing your eyes, drifting and dreaming as you’re swept along into the soft cushion of sleep, becoming more and more relaxed as your mind lets go, thoughts falling away and wonderful dreams taking over, taking you on a calm, pleasant journey through the night; that’s right, mind and body relaxing together as the moon and stars float gently through their journey across the sky; and you wake to the light of the sun in the sky feeling refreshed and energised, ready to greet the new day, able to enjoy it to the fullest.

Hypnotherapy can help you overcome sleep problems and insomnia allowing you to experience that wonderful feeling of going to bed at night knowing that you’ll be dropping off into a deep, peaceful, relaxing sleep that allows your whole body/mind system to regenerate so that you’re able to deal much more effectively with everyday life, feeling your best.

The therapy will be designed specifically for your requirements and clients often find positive change after only a couple of sessions. In addition to the initial consultation, I usually suggest 2-4 sessions, however as each client’s needs are unique the course may be shorter or longer depending on contributing factors. This will be discussed with you and reviewed as you make progress.
