The London Sleep Centre has defined poor sleep with one or more of the following: difficulty falling asleep, difficulty maintaining sleep, waking up too early in the morning and non-refreshing sleep.
All of the above symptoms can be relieved with the use of hypnotherapy, a gentle process which will help you to fall asleep using a variety of techniques such as relaxation and visualisation. The session will usually begin with the hypnotherapist taking you into a deeply relaxed state which will leave your mind open to positive suggestions.
These hypnotic suggestions are intended to change a persons physical state or perceptions. For example positive suggestions for insomnia may involve the hypnotherapist telling you you’re feeling tired and that you can feel yourself easily drifting off to sleep or if you wake you will fall straight back to sleep again.
