Having trouble sleeping?
The importance of sleep should not be underestimated. Sleep is one of the most important elements of our bodily functions. In sleep,the body is able to rest and regenerate so that we can continue to function in our daily lives. Many of us experience trouble sleeping at one time or another. Usually it’s due to stress, travel, illness, or other temporary interruptions to your normal routine. But if sleep problems are a regular occurrence, They can take a serious toll on your mental and physical health, leading to memory problems, high blood pressure, weight gain, and impacting your immune system, heart health, energy levels, and mood.
You may find that you struggle to get to sleep, or maybe you get to sleep easily, but you find yourself tossing and turning all night – or perhaps you wake up in the night, and struggle to get back to sleep
It is important to contact your GP if you are experiencing a sleep disorder. They will be able to provide you with a diagnosis and advice, as well as being able to rule out any underlying medical conditions. At this stage your doctor may recommend a special treatment or service, such as hypnotherapy.
It can be said that by reducing our anxiety, depression, anger or stress, we will start to build better sleep patterns.
While some sleeping problems will have an obvious cause, others may not. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is very effective at getting you to relax, reduce stress levels and therefore improve sleep. Most people will require several sessions to fully treat the problem. You will also be given a support CD which is designed to encourage peaceful sleep.
