Sleep Problems

One of the biggest benefits of hypnotherapy is the level of relaxation you can experience.  Some psychologists (Platonov) have even suggested the benefits of hypnotherapy can be more restorative than sleep itself.  In fact some have even gone on to say that just engaging in hypnosis without any further suggestions, can be a therapy in its own right because of the levels of relaxation (Benson).

We can help alleviate thoughts and make sleep a more natural process for you, teaching you how to not engage with thoughts that prevent you from sleeping.

The more you try and force something to happen the less likely it will.  We can teach you strategies to be able to take a step back and to go with the flow instead of continuously ruminating.

Allow us to help guide you deep into relaxation and to teach you how to be able to really enjoy relaxing, without putting unnecessary pressure on yourself.

 

 

 

How our programmes are delivered

A specific plan is tailored to each person by one of our therapists to help them achieve their goals and to prepare for any issues along the way.

We easily identify any issues by using evidence based procedures to help assess and build a strategic plan for success.  Case formulation (understanding of issues) is a very important part of any successful therapy.  “A problem well defined is a problem halved”.

We focus on three main aspects that are required by any therapist,

  • Bond of trust between therapist and client;
  • Agreement on therapy goals;
  • Agreement on therapy tasks (Bordin, 1979).

The initial session will start with an introduction to dispel any concerns/misconceptions that you have about hypnotherapy.

Relevant questions will be asked so that we can get a better understanding of what your main issue is, and if there are any other contributing stresses.

If there any obstacles that come in the way of you achieving your goals, we will work together to design a flexible plan to prepare for any setbacks so you can stay on track.
