We've all had those nights where we lie there awake, our mind endlessly wandering as soon as we turn the light off. This on occasion happens to everyone but when it starts happening too often it affects our day to day life. Often even once we are asleep this isn't the end of the story, we find ourselves waking up at various times during the night and can't get back to sleep, this is our brain waking us up - and hypnotherapy can help. Certain medical conditions such as restless leg syndrome can also keep us awake and can be helped using hypnosis. 


When we sleep, we dream, this is called Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep. During REM sleep we re-run prominent events from the past, this is our brains way of dealing with things. When things are working correctly we wake up the next day and generally feel better about the day before. We have all heard the phrases 'sleep on it' and 'time is a good healer', these are great examples of our REM pattern working well. However, this REM pattern is restricted to just 20% of our sleep patterns - it is when we hit that 20% that we wake up. 


'Hypnos' is the Greek for sleep, so it will come as no surprise that hypnosis is ideal for helping sleep issues of all kinds. During hypnosis we replicate the natural REM pattern to give the brain the extra time to do what it should be doing. By guiding the brain in a positive way during sessions and giving it the extra REM time, this will free it up at night to concentrate on what it should be doing. In a very few short weeks our sleeping patterns will be back to where they should be!
