Most adults need between six and eight hours’ sleep each night, although we’re all different. Some people find they can manage on just three hours. Older women often find their night’s sleep is broken, especially if they’ve taken a nap during the day.
You can easily feel that you are not sleeping as much as you are.
Sleep disturbance can be brought on for a number of reasons. It can be caused by illness, anxiety, depression, and many other causes not so serious. It can have you waking up in the early hours and not being able to get back to sleep; it could be you simply can’t get to sleep in the first place or perhaps you simply have a disrupted sleep pattern. Whatever the problem, it causes issues during the day such as tiredness, lack of concentration and it can even cause health problems.
Hypnotherapy can enable a gentle change that encourages relaxation just prior to sleep. These changes can have a beneficial effect with some people and allow them to overcome sleep problems. Depending on the person, change can be immediate or sometimes take a little longer; it all depends on what issues you have in your surrounding life. Sometimes sleep problems are brought on by stress and when that stress is reduced your mind may have adopted a pattern of disrupted sleep. Hypnotherapy can help correct that negative pattern allowing sleep problems to fade into the past! It should be noted that hypnotherapy alone may not provide the answer, the client themselves may need to make changes as suggested to alleviate stress.
