Hypnotherapy for Insomnia
Getting a good night’s sleep is essential for both our physical and mental health. When we sleep, any unresolved emotional issues are resolved through dreaming (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep and during deeper periods of sleep, our physical body is able to restore and rejuvenate.
Of course, when sleep is disrupted, the knock on effects can negatively impact our lives. Fatigue, anxiety, a low mood, difficulty concentrating and general feelings of malaise are some of the most common reported complications.
Causes of insomnia are many but some of the most common are stress, anxiety, irregular work schedules, poor sleeping habits and even eating too late in the evening.
Let’s look at the three main types of insomnia:
Sleep Onset Insomnia
This is when you have trouble getting to sleep at the beginning of the night. You might feel as though you’re tossing and turning and sufferers often report feeling tired but wired. This means they are experiencing a nervous mental energy that is preventing the onset of sleep.
Sleep Maintenance Insomnia
This type of insomnia refers to having wakeful periods in the middle of the night and struggling to get back to sleep. This not only affects the quantity of sleep but also the quality of sleep as the natural sleeping rhythms are disrupted.
Early Morning Insomnia
This is when you wake up before you’d like to or need to and you’re unable to get back to sleep again. This means the quantity of your sleep is diminished considerably and you’re left feeling exhausted both mentally and physically.
