Definition of Insomnia
We all need a good night sleep, but unfortunately for a lot of people bed time is a time of anxiety, boredom, rumination and stress.
Some people find it incredibly difficult to get to sleep in the first place (Primary Insomnia). Other people wake up multiple times during the night and find it difficult to get back to sleep (Middle Insomnia). And others wake up very early and are not able to get back to sleep at all (Terminal Insomnia).
Whichever you suffer from, onsomnia is extremely debilitating, leaving you feeling tired, anxious and emotionally unstable, impairing your ability to react creatively and appropriately to every day situations. It can affect your relationships, your business and, your physical health.
The primary causes of insomnia include: psychological factors such as stress, anxiety and depression; physical factors such as pain, hormone changes or any number of medical conditions; and temporary factors such as changing sleep patterns, over use of caffeine or other stimulants, or a major change in one’s environment.
Irrespective of the cause, the most common solution seems to be the use of pharmaceuticals. But whilst sleeping pills can have a positive impact, they do not deal with the root causes of insomnia and, can often lead to dependence.
Hypnotherapy and NLP however deal with the symptoms of insomnia in entirely holistic manner. Not only do they help you to deal with the root cause of your insomnia, but they also provide you with useful learning in relation to more effective sleep strategies and, ongoing relaxation through self hypnosis techniques. Hypnotherapy and NLP are extremely effective tools for curing sleep problems and disorders.
