We all have a natural ‘body clock’ that tells us when to sleep and when wake up. It’s called our circadian rhythm. Some people will go to sleep early and rise early, while others will prefer to go to sleep much later and rise later. You will also have our own pattern of deep sleep and lighter sleep. 
 
Recent research suggests that these patterns might have originally been useful when we lived in tribes. They would make sure that that some members were always more alert to danger throughout the night. 
 
Breathing, digestive and heart conditions can affect your sleep, as well as anxiety, depression and stress. Travelling and shift work might also disturb your sleep. Lack of proper sleep might mean you are tired during the day, feel irritable and find it hard to concentrate or remember things. Ongoing sleeplessness can affect your physical and mental health. 
 
Solution focused hypnotherapy (SFH) will help you to understand how sleep allows you to process each day’s events. You will also learn how to relax using hypnosis to improve both the duration and quality of your sleep. 

Common Symptoms 

Difficulty falling asleep at night 
Waking up during the night 
Not feeling well-rested after a night's sleep 
Daytime tiredness or sleepiness 
Irritability, depression or anxiety 
Difficulty paying attention, focusing on tasks or remembering 
Ongoing worries about sleep 

Types of Insomnia 

 
A brief episode of difficulty in sleeping is known as acute insomnia. It is usually caused by a life event: a stressful change, bad news or travel. Acute insomnia often passes without any treatment. 
 
A long-term pattern of poor sleep for three nights each week and for more than three months is usually called chronic insomnia. 
 
Changes to your sleeping patterns can be affected by other conditions (comorbidity) such as depression and anxiety. Medical problems such as back pain can also affect your sleep. 
 
If you find it difficult to fall asleep when you go to bed you could have onset insomnia. It can be caused by anxiety and behaviour that affects your ability to relax. 
 
If you frequently wake during the night and then find it difficult to get back to sleep it’s called maintenance insomnia. If unaddressed it could affect your overall quality of life. 
Compared with those that sleep well insomniacs report a lower quality of life affecting their mental as well as physical wellbeing. 
 
Sleep can be improved by learning relaxation techniques and by making changes to your behaviour to help you sleep restfully. 

Discovery Session 

During the Discovery Session we will spend time discussing your symptoms and how long you have been suffering from them, any medication that you are on and what you are aiming to achieve. We will also explore any ‘triggers’ that may bring on an episode to understand a little more. 
 
The session will also help me: 
 
Understand how your symptoms impact your daily life. 
Explain how the brain works and its influence on how you feel today. 
Explain how Hypnotherapy can assist in creating positive change. 
Set you on the road to recovery 
Ensure that you are happy to work with me 
 
I do not undertake any hypnotherapy in the first session but you will leave with access to an MP3 which you can use to relieve stress and build confidence. 
 
This is for you to keep even if you do not pursue further treatment with Genesis Therapy. 

The Treatment (Clinical Session) 

Solution focused hypnotherapy (SFH) is all about you and your goals. It encourages you to discover and use your inner resources based on a practical strategy that inspires change in a very short period of time. From the first session you will start to take back control. 
 
We will: 
 
Set actionable goals. 
Use Hypnosis for relaxation and guided visualisation. 
Use questioning techniques. 
Set Homework – MP3 and other exercises. 
Measure your progress. 
 
While the approach of SFH is client focused and encourages you to discover your own inner strength and resources, it’s important to note that you are not alone in this.  
 
You and I will work together as a team to move forward from what’s troubling you.
