Sue Gray - Sleep Disorders, Insomnia & Chronic Pain
62 The Strand
Do you yawn for a Great Night's Sleep and long to wake feeling refreshed?
I am a member of the British Sleep Society and specialise in helping people suffering from Sleep Disorders, Insomnia and Chronic Pain. I am a versatile, fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Master NLP Practitioner, Life Coach and Meditation Teacher with years of experience of assisting people to improve their work and personal lives
We spend a third of our lives asleep and quality sleep is crucial for our mental and physical health and has a massive impact on how we function – our concentration, reaction times and decision-making ability. Research shows that 20% of road accidents may involve driver fatigue.
Sleep Disorders – I can help you with a wide range of sleep disorders including
· Insomnia – see below
· Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome and Jet Lag
· Restless Leg Syndrome
· Periodic Limb Movement Disorder
· Sleep Apnoea plus wearing a CPAP mask
· Sleep Walking
· Bruxism – Teeth Grinding and Jaw Clenching.
· Bed Wetting / Nocturnal Enuresis
I can also help you sleep comfortably wearing a CPAP Mask or Gum Shield
Insomnia is often, but not always, caused by stress and so rather than offering a one size fits all approach to insomnia, I will work with you to see if we can identify the cause and help you to resolve that as we deal with the insomnia. Insomnia might arise from situations that make it hard to switch off and relax, common issues are
· Anxiety and Overthinking
· Chronic Pain
· Grief and Loss
· Phobias & Fears
· Work Life Balance
· Unsocial hours and shift working
There are times in all our lives when we need a little help to find and utilise our inner resources, experiences, and abilities to enable us to overcome obstacles and reach our goals.
My unique combination of coaching, therapy, and meditation will help you re-set your sleep. Each session is tailored to your specific issues and needs and to help you make those changes even more quickly, I offer the option of 90 minute appointments.
My work is increasing on-line and I also see people in person in Deal, Kent. I only take on a limited number of clients at a time
I offer a special programme to help you get used to sleeping comfortably with a CPAP mask or gum shield.
You can book one session at a time, or you can book a Sleep Programme of 4 or 8 sessions. A Sleep Transformation Programme may include:
Sleep Training - Your mind and body know how to sleep, and using Hypnotherapy and advanced NLP techniques, I can help you re-programme your unconscious mind, transform your thought processes to help you get a Great Night’s Sleep.
Sleep Diary - Diaries are powerful catalysts for change. You can record the frequency and severity of any sleep disorder, how much sleep you are getting, how tired you are during the day, your routines, stressful events, what you are eating and drinking, alcohol etc. This will help you identify areas of your life that may be getting in the way of your sleep.
Life Coaching- can help you make life style changes that will support your sleep.
Transforming the Cause - we can identify and tackle the root cause of your sleep problem, which may often be stress related.
Self-Hypnosis – I can teach you how to use self-hypnosis to support your sleep and relaxation
Breathing techniques - I can teach you breathing techniques you can use to relax or energise, and reduce snoring.
Meditation – I teach simple, effective mediation techniques that you can use in the long term to improve your sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, improve your health, increase your self-awareness and concentration. Even meditating for just 10 Minutes twice a day can have a profound impact on your sleep, health and well-being.
I offer a special programme to help you sleep comfortably wearing a CPAP mask or gum shield.
I also teach Sandy C Newbigging’s Mind Calm and Body Calm, which include a simple, effective meditation. These are usually 6 sessions.
You do not need to quieten your mind to meditate - if you can think, I can teach you to meditate!
I am a versatile practitioner with years of experience of assisting people to improve their work and personal lives. I am passionate about what I do and know from personal experience how effective my approach can be as I suffered with fatigue, pain, a lack of sleep and restless legs for many years.
As well as being a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, Master NLP Practitioner and Coach, I am a Meditation Coach, and qualified with Sandy C. Newbigging to teach Mind Calm and Body Calm.
Insomnia & Stress - Sue’s hypnotherapy helped me to relax, expel stress and negative energy and sleep better. Without Sue, I would probably be on medication to help sleep. This has not been necessary. Development Manager, Ealing
Insomnia & Work-Life Balance - I have learnt to go to work to do a job, leave work happy, look forward to my weekend and I sleep better at night. I prioritise what makes me happy. Accountant, Harrow.
Insomnia and Anxiety- Sue was approachable, friendly, understanding, has empathy and great sense of humour. I have been able to take a step back in situations I would have felt flustered in. …... I would recommend Sue without any hesitation. Performance Manager, London
Insomnia and Overthinking- My mind seemed to be constantly racing. Sue taught me how to achieve a state of calm. It has helped me see the wood from the trees, make better business decisions and stay focused on what really matters in my life. John, Managing Director, London
Results - Sue exudes a calmness in her work which makes her clients feel comfortable and secure. At the same time, Sue has an incisive way of identifying not just what her clients' needs are but also in judging when to stretch and challenge them, and when to hold back. Before I met Sue, I had tried a few practitioners. Now I would not consider going to anyone else. Finance Director, London

HOW I DISCOVERED HYPNOTHERAPY, NLP, COACHING AND MEDITATION
I developed chronic health problems following two minor head injuries, and a large dose of stress, which left me unable to work and made commuting difficult as I was unable to use escalators, and had to walk using sticks. After sinking right down, being on tablets for depression and sleeplessness, etc, I decided I was not going to accept that this is how my life would be.
I determined that by hook or by crook I would get well.
I did my research and decided on my path to health. I have never looked back. I have continued to make even more improvements. I trained with the people that enabled me to recover my life. I decided that this would be my new career. I was previously a senior manager in the housing sector.
I am living proof that we can powerfully influence our health and life with the right approach. I am now passionate about helping others to do the same.
Having had a life-changing illness myself, and come out the other side, thanks to NLP, Hypnotherapy, Coaching and Mediation, I now specialise in helping other busy people get their lives back, specialising in sleep issues and what stops you getting a Great Night's Sleep.
