Sleep and why it’s important

“ I can’t sleep – can hypnotherapy help?”

It’s funny, but I don’t often get asked to help purely with sleep, which is a shame, because hypnotherapy is so good at resetting our sleep patterns. When we regularly have a good night’s sleep, with plenty of deep restful phases and periods of REM (Rapid Eye Movement ) – more about these in a moment – we find life so much easier to manage.

REM sleep occupies at best 20% of our normal sleep pattern, and it’s an essential part of sorting out our problems and helping us to find solutions. If you have, or have had, a lot of stressful events or problems to resolve, and you don’t sleep well, you may well find that it doesn’t take too much to tip you over the edge into worry or anxiety the next day. A good night’s sleep on a regular basis helps keep stress at a manageable level so that we can be more creative about finding solutions. In addition, our memories are better, and depression and anxiety are lower when we sleep well.

Have a look at this article about the effects of sleep on the incidence of Alzheimers, recently published in New Scientist 

Hypnotherapy helps by replicating REM sleep and therefore allowing us to do some serious problem solving on the couch. It’s amazing to realise that during REM sleep our brain is working harder than it does when doing complex maths!

Clients report a clearer mind, more space to think and a more relaxed approach to situations after hypnotherapy – seeing things for what they are, in perspective – as well as the ability to think more positively.
