It is believed that around a third of people will experience and suffer from a form of insomnia at some stage in their lives. This includes problems with falling asleep, waking up during the night or even waking up earlier than anticipated in the morning. The result of this long term lack of sleep includes fatigue, irritability, lack of motivation, reduced efficiency in problem solving, lower resistance to stress, reduced immunity and weight gain.
It is very important to get a good nights sleep, in order to assist the body to repair itself and replenish energy levels. What many people don’t realise is that we need the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) phase of sleep to help us learn and improve memory. It replenishes feel good hormones such as serotonin and dopamine which help boost our mood.
Hypnotherapy helps insomnia sufferers by addressing the underlying root cause of anxiety which can be creating the viscious circle of sleeplessness. This can often be caused by work, health or financial worries.
