We lead hectic lives which require us to constantly juggle work schedules, finances and family life. This causes our stress levels to quickly build up and then too often this ends in a sleepless night.
When we go to sleep the brain normally reduces stress levels by using Rapid Eye Movement, or REM sleep. Unfortunately REM is limited to 20% of our sleep pattern. So, if there is a lot of perceived stress in your life, then you quickly use up that 20% of REM, and, as a result, you may find that you wake up and struggle to return to sleep.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help you to relax, with the aim of helping you to sleep better at night. It helps you to focus on positive aspects of life and then to find solutions to certain issues. A hypnotherapy session is made up of part psychotherapy and then safe hypnotic techniques which further reduce stress.
By cutting down on stress in the comfort of the clinic then we find that the client can feel more relaxed and so can then experience a good night’s sleep.
It may take a number of sessions for the effect of therapy to be felt but its effects can be very beneficial – not just for aiding sleep but the techniques can also be useful for helping with issues such as stress, anxiety and depression issues.
