How can hypnosis help me sleep?

Think about your relationship with sleep; you need to stop calling it “my sleep problem” or “my insomnia”. It is not yours, and with my expertise, you are going to let go of old, outdated ideas that you have about yourself and take back control.

Before your first session, we discuss your life, childhood, and relationships with your family and friends. This helps me understand the symptom, as everyone I have helped might come in for sleep, but the issue is always something else, including anxiety and stress, confidence, and depression. Your sleep has normalised by treating the root cause and instilling new beliefs.

You may have been on sleep medication for many years, so many people take sleeping tablets. Hypnotherapy for sleep issues is natural and safe, and it’s important to remember that you are in control.

My sleep therapy sessions can be delivered online or in person, and just 1 to 3 is enough to give you permanent change.

I will help you access and reprogram your subconscious mind, allowing you to experience deep, restful sleep every night, and I would love to help you achieve this transformation through a session with me.

Aftercare is of utmost importance, and with my hypnotherapy sessions, I provide you with a wealth of resources, including techniques for self-hypnosis, a personally crafted 21-day recording to reinforce positive change, and information on EFT tapping and self-hypnosis to ensure long-lasting progress.

Sleep & Insomnia: More Info

How do my habits affect my sleep?

Let’s explore the various habits that may have impacted your relationship with sleep. Factors such as your relationship with food, alcohol, and your stress levels play a significant role.

How does alcohol affect my sleep?

While alcohol might help you fall asleep initially, it disrupts your sleep cycle. You may wake up in the early hours feeling tired and unable to get back to sleep. It’s essential to recognise that alcohol consumption, especially in the evening, can severely impact the quality of your sleep.

What impact does my diet have on my sleep?

Eating a carbohydrate-rich meal or foods high in sugar and fat before bedtime can negatively affect sleep. Such foods can cause fluctuations in blood sugar levels, leading to sleep/wake cycle disturbances. While some people seem unaffected by their diet, many find that what they eat influences how well they sleep.

Can stress from my job affect my sleep?

Absolutely. A stressful job can significantly impact your sleep patterns. The stress hormone cortisol can keep you awake at night, leading to difficulty falling asleep and frequent awakenings. Managing stress through healthy habits and techniques is crucial for better sleep.

Is insomnia hereditary?

Recent scientific research suggests that insomnia can be inherited from our parents. If you have family members who struggle with sleep, you might be more prone to experiencing insomnia yourself. Understanding this can help in addressing the root causes of your sleep issues.

How can I improve my sleep habits?

  1. Limit Alcohol: Try to reduce or eliminate alcohol consumption, especially in the evenings.
  2. Healthy Diet: Avoid heavy, rich meals, particularly before bedtime. Opt for a balanced diet throughout the day.
  3. Manage Stress: Implement stress-reduction techniques such as mindfulness, meditation, and regular exercise.
  4. Consistent Routine: Establish a regular sleep schedule by going to bed and waking up at the same time every day.
  5. Create a Sleep-Friendly Environment: Ensure your bedroom is conducive to sleep – dark, quiet, and calm.

Hints and Tips for a Better Night’s Sleep

How can I improve my sleep quality?

Achieving better sleep often requires addressing both your mental and physical health. Here are some practical hints and tips:

  1. Warm Milk with Cinnamon

Consider a cup of warm milk with ground cinnamon if you’re struggling to sleep. This combination can help regulate blood sugar levels, preventing those early morning wake-ups between 3 and 5 a.m.

  1. Mindful Eating

Be mindful of your diet, especially before bedtime. Avoid sugary foods and chocolates in the evening, as they can cause blood sugar spikes that disrupt sleep.

  1. Breathing Techniques

Practice deep breathing exercises to relax your mind and body. Techniques like the 4-7-8 breathing method can help calm your nervous system and prepare you for sleep.

  1. Mindfulness and Meditation

Incorporate mindfulness and meditation into your daily routine. These practices can reduce stress and anxiety, making it easier for you to fall and stay asleep.

  1. Consistent Sleep Schedule

Go to bed and wake up simultaneously every day, even on weekends. A consistent sleep schedule helps regulate your body’s internal clock.

  1. Create a Relaxing Bedtime Routine

Establish a calming pre-sleep routine. This could include reading a book, taking a warm bath, or listening to soothing music.

  1. Limit Screen Time

Avoid screens (phones, tablets, computers) at least an hour before bedtime. The blue light emitted by these devices can interfere with your body’s production of melatonin, the hormone that regulates sleep.

  1. Optimise Your Sleep Environment

Make sure your bedroom is conducive to sleep. Keep it calm, dark, and quiet. Use blackout curtains, earplugs, or a white noise machine if needed.

  1. Physical Activity

Regular exercise can help you fall asleep faster and enjoy deeper sleep. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week, but avoid vigorous activity close to bedtime.

  1. Manage Stress and Anxiety

Identify sources of stress and anxiety in your life and find ways to manage them. This might include talking to a therapist, practicing relaxation techniques, or finding healthy outlets for your stress, such as hobbies or physical activities.

  1. Limit Evening Screen Time

More and more people are checking phones and social media, watching movies, and consuming Netflix late into the night. These activities can overstimulate your brain and make it difficult to unwind. Try to limit screen time at least an hour before bed to help your mind relax.

By implementing these tips, you can create a healthy sleep routine that supports your physical and mental well-being. Remember, consistency and finding what works best for you are the keys to better sleep.
