Modern life leaves many of us suffering from sleep deprivation and yet it's never been more important to sleep well.
If we don't get enough natural, restorative sleep, then it’s almost impossible to function at our best.
We need sleep to replenish ourselves physically, emotionally and mentally on a daily basis otherwise we start to feel the adverse effects.
Not only that, but a lack of sleep can elevate stress hormones, affecting the mood centre of the brain and our immunity. Good sleep should restore and rejuvenate, releasing growth hormones which fix any damaged tissues and reducing our levels of stress hormones.
Sleep issues are often caused by the mind's inability to resolve worries and concerns - churning them over and over, becoming stuck and unable to move on. This can become a habit with poor sleep occurring because we expect it to and then all too easily it becomes a vicious circle.
Hypnotherapy helps you to develop a good and natural sleep pattern - by getting a good night's sleep, falling back to sleep easily if you wake and helping you to start your days as you would wish - feeling refreshed, alert, focused and in tune with the world. The deep relaxation experienced in our sessions is also excellent preparation for setting up healthy sleep habits. We know that Hypnosis emulates the the REM state and so it follows that it also performs the same updating and maintenance tasks as REM (sorting through those worries and concerns). Simply being in REM/hypnosis is enough to let an overloaded brain catch up on its housekeeping and switch off unresolved emotional arousals. This is why people often say they feel better and are able to think more clearly after hypnosis.
And the great news is that it's never too late to address this.
