Insomnia and sleep problems tend to start in isolation but can easily develop into bad habits. If you think you won't be able to sleep, it's almost certain that you won't. If you try not to think of a pink elephant, you'll probably think of one. If you try to get an irritating song out of your head, you'll probably struggle. And, of course, if you have to try to fall asleep, you're probably already suffering from insomnia. Let's face it, you aren't supposed to try to fall asleep, normally it just happens.
Hypnotherapy can help you to develop new expectations and make insomnia a thing of the past.
Many people come to see a hypnotherapist for something they believe to be completely unrelated and are amazed that their sleep improves as a consequence of dealing with the other issue. This is one of the most empowering effects of hypnosis – one thing changes and so many other things fall into place.
If you are suffering from depression you may feel 'alone', but in fact as many as one in six people will suffer with some form of depression at some point during their lives. But due to the stigma that still seems to be attached to depression even today, a lot of people still chose to go through life without ever seeking help, accepting that depression is just 'part of them' – don’t be one of them. Hypnotherapy can help.
The roots of depression reside in our unconscious mind, that part of us that controls our beliefs, feelings, emotions and behaviours. It is our unconscious mind that is responsible getting us deeply absorbed in the erroneous or negative patterns of thinking, behaving and relating to others that are often the primary symptoms of depression.
Hypnosis bypasses the conscious mind to focus attention on particular images, thoughts, perceptions, feelings, motivations and behaviours which will help change our habitual responses and learnt behaviours, to create new perspectives on past experiences and help you move forward into a positive future.
