Overcoming insomnia – two hour CPD workshop
Hypnotherapists and other health care professionals regularly see clients who have difficulty sleeping. This workshop is for hypnotherapists who are keen to understand and improve their clients sleeping patterns, giving a step-by-step guide to our structured but flexible four-week programme.
Having poor sleep can cause a number of difficulties including fatigue, irritability, poor memory, mood swings, or not able to think clearly. Clients with insomnia also risk many health conditions because their bodies haven’t been through the ‘rest and repair’ stages of sleep.
Some clients have difficulty falling asleep because of a racing mind, others may be able to fall asleep but wake in the middle of the night and can’t go back to sleep.
The basic definition of insomnia is: The difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, and poor quality sleep – and this is what most of your clients will come to you for help with.
In the workshop you will learn:
- why do we need sleep and how much do we need?
- the sleep cycle/sleep wake homeostasis
- the circadian rhythm
- the different stages of sleep
- problems that cause insomnia
- problems that insomnia causes
- helpful techniques to slow down a racing mind
- creating a comfortable sleep environment
- techniques to improve sleep
- lifestyle questionnaire
- our unique four-week insomnia programme
