Sleep allows our brain to process the information collected through the day. It is something everybody needs and plays a vital role in both our physical and mental health. This is because when we sleep our body heals and repairs itself.
There are two different categories of insomnia.
Falling under the Temporary Insomnia category are:
Temporary Insomnia, usually lasting between one night and three to four weeks.
Intermittent Insomnia, where sleeping problems are experienced periodically over months or years.
Acute Insomnia, which sometimes occurs when someone has a brief episode of difficulty sleeping, often brought on by a stressful life event.
The second category of insomnia is Persistent Insomnia, which is sometimes also known as Chronic Insomnia, where the problem persists almost nightly for at least four weeks or more.
When suffering from insomnia for a long period of time (which is not caused by the side effects of prescribed medication, or an underlying medical condition), the patterns of sleep disturbances can become embedded in our subconscious.
Through hypnosis, or more specifically through suggestions made to a client whilst under hypnosis, Jacqueline's aim is to communicate with the subconscious mind to establish the root cause of the sleeplessness and once this has been found she is able to help break the negative thought patterns causing the problem.
For some people, physical or mental tension, the stresses and strains of everyday life, or accumulative stress, can make sleeping difficult. As hypnotherapy combines the use of very deep relaxation techniques, such as progressive muscle relaxation to help reduce tension, you will be encouraged to develop a new sleep routine and learn new positive behavioural patterns which, as a result, will improve your sleep hygiene, and overall reduce evening and night-time stress.
The number of hypnotherapy sessions required to help you overcome insomnia will vary and very much depend on your individual circumstances. Some people only need one session, while others may require deeper work where several sessions will be required.
