Hypnotherapy for Insomnia – Hypnotherapy Sydney
My approach to treating insomnia is a holistic one. I like to get information about the patient with regard to any particular stresses the patient may be experiencing. I will also inquire about lifestyle, occupation, nutrition, alcohol, cigarette consumption and recreational drug use.
I have seen a variety of patients for insomnia: A fighter pilot, a flight engineer, a company executive and various other people. In many cases the main cause of the insomnia is the self-talk or monologue that goes on in the patient’s mind when the patient goes to bed. It often prevents sleep occurring.
In other cases the patient make wake up long before it is time to get up and starts to think about work-related issues. The patient needs to be instructed to “lock the thoughts away” until the next morning.
Josie Hadley, a very successful and experienced hypnotherapist has identified the types of monologues typical of insomniacs. Here are three types of monologues that may sound familiar to you:
The Clock Watcher: “Oh no, it’s one thirty in the morning. I’ve been in bed since eleven and I still can’t sleep. What can I do? I won’t be able to work tomorrow. I’ll look worn out and drained. I’ll feel terrible. Oh no, now it’s almost two o’clock. Even if I get to sleep in five minutes I’ll only be able to sleep four hours. I can’t get by on only four hours sleep.”The Doomsayer: “I can’t sleep and I’m completely miserable. Everything is messed up lately anyway. I can’t seem to make anything work out, not even getting to sleep. Life is just one negative experience after another. Now insomnia is another punishment I have to endure.”
The Fixer: “I have to figure out of this one or I’m going to be in deep trouble … What if I try to … I’ll say this to him and this is what he’ll say back … Oh there’s no way out and all I can do is go around in circles. What if …”Sleep is an elusive state, you can’t force it; it has to come to you.
The majority of work in cases of insomnia has to be done prior to hypnosis being induced. Resolution is not always achieved by just “implanting” a post hypnotic suggestion that the patient will “sleep like a baby.” Post hypnotic suggestion for sleep will work better once the underlying causes of the insomnia have been uncovered and dealt with. In the next article I will discuss Hypnotherapy in Sydney for smoking.
