If you are suffering with sleeping problems, hypnotherapy can help you enormously. Sleeping problems tend to occur for several reasons:
- Something is on your mind - which means you have problems with switching off from daily events.
- Fear of not being able to fall asleep - if you experience sleeping problems for a period of time, the fear of it continuing can cause you to lose even more sleep - thereby worsening your insomnia. Your insomnia could have been started by some other factor such as pain, poor sleeping environment or certain medications, but is being perpetuated by fear of the insomnia.
- Stress and anxiety - tends to affect many areas of your life, a good night's sleep being one of them. Sometimes even unresolved issues from long ago can come to the surface at sleep-time - and cause restless sleep, nightmares, insomnia or poor levels of deep, recuperative sleep.
All these areas and others not mentioned respond well to hypnosis and hypnotherapy because sleeping problems tend to stem from your inner thoughts and feelings playing out on your mind.
Hypnotherapy can be used to help set your mind at ease at bed time and create new, more positive thoughts and habits around sleep. Hypnotherapy can also be used to resolve any emotional issues which may be causing sleeping difficulties at an unconscious level. Lack of sleep can have extremely debilitating effects on all areas of your life and cause mood swings, anxiety, irritation and depression. However, once your sleeping patterns are returned to normal you can begin to look forward to the relaxing feeling of your head sinking into a soft pillow, the serenity of a good night's sleep and the magic of waking in the morning feeling alert and refreshed.
"I was very very sceptical, I thought that this type of treatment was for other people not me. However I recognised that I was becoming addicted to sleeping pills and thought I would give acupuncture and hypnotherapy a try. I was only sleeping 3h per night and worried about sleeping. After one session I was calmer and no longer worried about sleep. I have not taken sleeping pills since the first session. I now sleep 6 - 10h every night and I am no longer afraid to go to bed." - Elizabeth

““I went to see Keith for my insomnia. Within just a few sessions we have tackled the cause of the insomnia - feelings of anger and hurt from the past. I am now sleeping much better, and have a more balanced outlook, and less stress in my life. It was a very worthwhile experience.
Thanks very much, Keith” — Mary
“After having a child who has always found sleeping difficult (getting to sleep and staying asleep) and years on and off Melatonin to aid insomnia, a friend jokingly said I should try hypnosis on Oliver. I started to do some research as I’d never had any experience of hypnotherapy before and came across Keith @ Intuity. I started to wonder.....what if this could work. Oliver at the age of 9 had had a few failed sleepovers with friends and had a 4 night residential trip with school looming....we had NO idea how he was going to do this!
When I first made contact with Keith, he listened, gave advice about how hypnotherapy worked and told me how the sessions would work. More importantly, he gave me confidence that he could help.
There was no pressure, but with Oliver on board to give it a go, we booked our first appointment.
It is by far the best thing we have ever done. I am astounded by the results and they were almost instant. After just one session Oliver was able to fall asleep within minutes of getting into bed and awoke during the night only once (between 7-9 times had been his average up until this point).
After his second session Oliver went away on his 4 night residential trip and slept really well with his friends, with no problems! After just 3 sessions his sleeping is consistent each night, he no longer wakes during the night and is a happier, more confident boy.
Keith and Oliver have a great rapport. Keith tailors his sessions around Oliver’s interests and Oliver really enjoys their meetings.
I would absolutely and totally recommend Keith; he’s professional, approachable and makes his clients feel totally at ease.”
