I will let you know how I'm getting on and will make it my aim to get into better eating habits for when I return so I have some good news for you!
Thanks for all your help... so far I am more than impressed! Will definitely be recommending you,
Do you have difficulty sleeping? Do you find it difficult to fall asleep or keep asleep?
Then it is likely you are suffering with insomnia. Insomnia is difficulty to sleep or disturbed sleep. This can be shown in several ways; not being able to get to sleep, waking too early in the morning; waking during the night and can be a direct result of life events; shift working, stressful situations (or excitement!), medication or physical necessity.
Insomniacs are four times more likely to suffer from relationship problems. Insomniacs are 3 times more likely to have difficulties concentrating. Insomniacs are twice as likely to have energy slumps.
Hypnotherapy for insomnia can be about learning to relax, however, ultimately hypnotherapy is about changing the belief; subconsciously. Insomniacs can worry during hypnosis that they may fall asleep- hypnosis is an altered trance state where work is executed mentally and although it does involve a relaxation of sorts, the aim is to enable sleep that is normal and natural which meaning night, in bed!
How much sleep do we need? Sometimes it is easy to believe we do have insomnia, but we are all individuals consequently some of us need 9 hours, some 5 hours and so on; insomnia becomes a problem when it begins to interfere with our day to day workings; inability to concentrate, irritability wanting to go to sleep or worrying about what will happen tonight. If we have enough sleep for our bodies we will be able to get on with each day effectively.
Let us help you to re-educate your mind to expect to enjoy a good night's sleep.
The most common problem in young people with insomnia is difficulty falling asleep (sleep-onset insomnia). Insomnia can last for days, months or even years. An insomniac may experience:
Insomnia can adversely effect our eating patterns - we will often crave carbs to give us the energy to stay awake the next day, and also eat late into the evening because we cannot sleep.
Performance at work or college is greatly impeded in insomniacs as the ability to concentrate is diminished through lack of sleep.
Insomnia does not have to be a thing you live with! You can change your habits from being a non-sleeper to someone who sleeps well very easily.
With Primary Insomnia there is usually some habitual behaviour linked to not being able to sleep based on the belief that it is impossible to sleep- Hypnotherapy for insomnia can alter the deep based belief subconsciously and with some minor behavioural changes can alter the way sleep occurs; after all we need sleep to survive; all animals sleep and hypnotherapy can return the subconscious malfunction back to “normal”.
It only takes between 2 or 3 one hour sessions to regain the sleep pattern you deserve.
