Hypnotherapy for Insomnia


Insomnia and sleep disorders can seriously affect a persons health and well being. If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, hypnotherapy can help.

Difficulty in sleeping can have a huge impact on the sufferer’s day-to-day functioning. If you are an insomnia sufferer you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue
  • Lack of concentration
  • Foggy thinking
  • Anxiety & depression
  • Sleepiness during the day
  • Irritability

Insomnia is a very common problem. It is thought that between 30% and 40% of people suffer from insomnia in any given year. It can affect people of all ages, but seems to be more common in those over 60 years old.

There are 2 main types of insomnia.

Temporary (transient) Insomnia:
Temporary insomnia usually lasts between a night and a month. It can be caused by jet lag, stress, work problems, partner’s sleeping habits (e.g., snoring), external noise, temperature, excessive intake of caffeine and alcohol.

Persistent (chronic) Insomnia:
Persistent insomnia usually occurs nightly for more than a month. This can be caused by certain medical conditions including asthma and allergies. It can be due to the discomfort of the medical condition or sometimes the medication that is taken to help with the condition itself.
Other things that can cause this type of insomnia include stress, depression, anxiety and hormonal changes. Hormonal changes can often cause problems for women during the menopause and perimenopause.

Hypnotherapy for Insomnia.

The most important thing in dealing with insomnia is to find out what is causing the problem. If you can find and resolve the core issue then recovery from insomnia will be permanent. When the root cause (which is often hidden away in the subconscious mind) is discovered, this is where hypnotherapy comes in. Knowing ‘why’ doesn’t always solve the problem, sometimes extra help is need.  Hypnotherapy helps by accessing the subconscious to get to the root of the problem. It helps you to heal yourself so you can start getting a good nights’ sleep every night!

Insomnia is a distressing condition that can have an adverse effect on your personal, work and home life. The good news is hypnotherapy has helped many people to rectify their sleep problems and it can help you too.
