Hypnosis for Insomnia

Hypnosis for insomnia can help you to enjoy deep refreshing sleep and get back on track.

Are you one of those people who, as soon as your head hits the pillow, you brain seems to go into overdrive?

Maybe you get frustrated at how hard it is to get to sleep? Lying awake, tossing and turning, exhausted maybe, but unable to drift off can be so frustrating and of course debilitating if you are enduring it on a regular basis. With sleep, often the harder you try, the harder it gets to drop off.

Sleep is not a state of being that can in any way be forced, only encouraged, as in reality all you can actually do is to wait for it to happen by itself. This makes it highly susceptible to disruption – as soon as you are waiting for sleep to happen, the process becomes disturbed by anxiety, and sleep becomes elusive.

However, whatever is contributing to insomnia, the ultimate cause is a lack of relaxation. If you relax completely at the right time of day you will fall asleep. This is why hypnosis can be so helpful in you beating insomnia. Hypnosis is so deeply relaxing, it makes perfect sense to use this state to encourage a good night’s sleep

Before you can nod off, certain changes occur in your body, a subtle change in body temperature needs to happen, so your body’s core temperature needs to be lower than the temperature of your hands and feet, cold hands and feet really will keep you awake, as you already know. Also, your mind needs to turn off from thinking about events of the day, and begin to focus inwardly, creating internal images, very similar to hypnosis, and these changes help to encourage you to drift naturally off to sleep.

It is important to have a good bed time routine, or sleep hygiene as it is often referred to. Ensuring that you have had some down time to wind down the events of the day, avoiding too much mind stimulation from watching television or browsing the internet on your phone, also ensuring that meal times are early on in the evening so that your digestion does not interfere with your sleep, avoiding alcohol or caffeine is important too. This alongside ensuring you have some time set aside for relaxation, even it is just ten minutes, to allow your mind to rest and clear before your head hits that pillow. These simple measures can really make a difference to prepare you for good sleep.

Hypnosis can help you to achieve better levels of general relaxation and help you to manage any underlying anxiety effectively, as well as ensuring that you pay close attention to your ‘sleep hygiene’ routine, and then hypnosis can gently slow down your mind, let go of the day, and focus inwardly to an inner world of relaxation, and deep restorative sleep.

Hypnosis for insomnia can really make a difference, you will need around 4 sessions where you can learn how to deal with any underlying anxiety, secondly to learn how to still your mind and enter a world of inner focus. You will be sent your personal recordings which you can use to find relaxation at any time, and others which are specifically created for you to be able to find that relaxed state of inner focus, with hypnotic suggestions to create the changes within your body and mind that will help you to drop off to sleep naturally and easily.

Sleep is so important, when we have not had adequate sleep, or the right kind of sleep, it can lead to a rise in your general anxiety levels and even feelings of depression, as well as the physical and practical effects of being exhausted.
