Sleep / Insomnia

Many people suffer insomnia at some point in their lives, about a third. This includes difficulty falling asleep, waking up during the night or early in the morning. Lack of sleep can cause fatigue, lack of motivation, irritability, reduced problem-solving skills, inability to cope with stress, reduced immunity, weight gain and long term can seriously impair a person’s ability to function normally. Often in life sleep is the first thing to be affected in our busy lives and its so important for us to sleep well. This is a time when the body repairs itself, restores energy levels and allows REM sleep to occur which processes our daily events and stresses and is vital for learning and memory.
Anxiety is a common cause of insomnia and the more you worry the more the problem gets worse, now you are in the grip of a vicious circle and makes it harder for you to sleep.
Hypnotherapy can help by identifying any underlying anxieties which can be caused by many things such as relationships, money worries, work or health and all these worries seem so much bigger in the middle of the night whilst trying to get to sleep.
