Fixing Sleep Issues with the Power of Hypnosis

As we come out of the other side of the pandemic

It has affected many of our daily routines, and one of its biggest reported impacts has been that on sleep - sleep becomes more elusive when we are anxious.

Many people are suffering sleep issues for the first time in their lives:

• awake for long periods

• unable to fall asleep at all

• wake up several times during the night

• more intense and emotional dreams

• tired and groggy the next morning

• find it difficult to concentrate or function properly

• feel irritable

But good sleep stratagems will help you sleep well and can limit the negative effects of poor sleep.

Try these FIVE hints for calmer and better sleep.

1 Limit news intake and avoid your mobiles and tablets for at least an hour before bed

Do something to boost your mood before bed - a humorous television programme or an uplifting podcast can help you sleep

2 Have structure to your day

Our brains and bodies love structure. Wake, exercise, eat and sleep at similar times each day

3 Focus on your breathing

Think about resting rather than sleeping. Follow your breathing by silently whispering the words ‘in’ and ‘out’ to induce sleep.

4 Learn to relax

Relaxation can switch off the stress response, physically and mentally. Find something that works for you - mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing or a long hot bath.

5. If you can’t sleep - get out of bed

Your bed should not be a battleground. Instead, try to enjoy the sensation of merely resting.


Hypnosis can help many forms of sleep issues.

If you are not sleeping well, and traditional treatments are not working, hypnosis may be able to help you sleep the way you deserve.

It uses different approaches to induce relaxation, such as focused attention, symptom control and guided imagery.

And, unlike sleep medications, it has no side effects, so it can be an aid for those who can’t or don’t want to take sleeping pills.

It can help overcome bedtime restlessness - ease the worry, tension and anxiety that prevent sleep - and can show the way to the deep, restorative sleep that we all need.

Hypnosis and Self Esteem

Posted on 2 December, 2020 at 13:50


In a 2017 research in the UK by Dove, it was found that 61% of 10-17 year old girls in the UK have low self-esteem

Self-esteem is an area that can affect so many different areas of an individual's life.

From sports professionals to teenagers, weight issues to addictions, self- esteem can lie beneath many of the issues that I work with as a therapist.

We all have times when we lack confidence and do not feel good about ourselves.

But when low self-esteem becomes a long-term problem, it can have a harmful effect on our mental health and our day-to-day lives.

Self-esteem is the opinion we have of ourselves.

Self-esteem is an individual's subjective evaluation of their own worth. Synonyms or near-synonyms of self-esteem include: self-worth, self-regard,

self-respect, and self-integrity.

When we have healthy self-esteem, we tend to feel positive about ourselves, and about life in general. It makes us better able to deal with life's ups and downs.

 

When our self-esteem is low, we tend to see ourselves and our life in a more negative and critical light.

We also feel less able to take on the challenges that life throws at us.

I have seen it perhaps most frequently in the teenagers of today, whether that is due to the impact of social media, or differing parenting skills and upbringings; I have seen at first hand how that sense of self-worth can change everything.

Some of the signs of low self-esteem can be

• Sensitivity to criticism

• Social withdrawal

• Hostility

• Excessive preoccupation with personal problems

• Physical symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia and headaches

Hypnosis can help!

Hypnotherapy focuses on:

• Identifying negative talk

• Connections with loving people

• Learning to be assertive

• Setting a challenge

• Focusing on the positives

 

Hypnosis is entirely collaborative and begins with a conversation to establish your goals. Only when we have decided on the correct course, will the hypnosis begin.

It will identify those areas and aspects affected most and will improve coping abilities, address past potential causes, and find renewed hope and positivity.

My Hypnosis for “Reclaiming Your Self-Esteem” program will enable you to re-focus and tap into your natural confidence - a confidence that you were actually born with!

Whether our sessions are face-to-face in person or online, hypnosis can help you.
