The therapists at New Farm Hypnotherapy have training in helping clients who suffer insomnia and other sleep difficulties and helping clients overcome insomnia has been a specialty developed at the clinic over many years.

Insomnia or the inability to get back to sleep during the night is one of the most common reasons for clients seeking hypnotherapy.  It is not unusual to have interrupted sleep from time to time as stress, worry or anxiety can all cause short term sleep problems. However, if this continues and you feel that you don’t get enough sleep, or you don’t wake from sleep refreshed you may be suffering from insomnia which is a sleep disorder. People with insomnia have one or more of the following symptoms, often over a prolonged period of time:

  • difficulty falling asleep;
  • waking up often during the night and having trouble going back to sleep;
  • waking up too early in the morning;
  • unrefreshing sleep.

Some facts about insomnia:

  • Insomnia can cause problems during the day such as sleepiness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and irritability.
  • Insomnia is not defined by the number of hours you sleep, the amount of sleep a person needs varies, often according to age and circumstances. While most people need between 7 and 8 hours of sleep a night, some people do well with less while others need more to function well.
  • Insomnia tends to increase with age and affects about 40% of women and 30% of men. Research shows that the productivity and efficiency of long term insomnia sufferers can be reduced by as much as 30%.

How Hypnosis helps with insomnia and promotes sleep

Hypnosis removes the obstacles to sleep while at the same time inducing brain wave patterns that promote and are conducive to falling asleep quickly and deeply. As you can see from the diagram below, regenerative good quality sleep, the kind of sleep you need to function well on an ongoing daily basis, occurs when your brain wave activity slows to delta.

Hypnosis will train your mind to access this pattern of  brain wave activity more easily and quickly and because this transition occurs smoothly and effortlessly good quality sleep is maintained for longer periods of time. Using hypnosis will enable you to regain healthy and normal sleep cycles.
