In his 10 year long career as a clinical hypnotherapist, Dr. Bruce Alexander has helped various patients come out of their insomnia and sleep related disorders.
Insomnia or the inability to fall asleep is a very common problem in today’s hectic lifestyle. It is believed that nearly half the population experiences it a few nights a week, or more. Insomnia can involve being unable to get to sleep, waking up in the middle of the night, or waking too early in the morning. If the problem is not treated, it can lead to various other problems, including daytime fatigue, depression, irritability, decreased productivity, and even accidents and injuries.
The most common solutions that people opt for to cure their insomnia are sleeping pills and over the counter (OTC) drugs. However, it is common knowledge that these are addiction prone and may also have a looming fear of overdose. What people fail to recognize is that the root cause of this disorder is present within their own minds. It is a person’s inability to control his/her own thoughts. They have deep seated issues that need to be solved in order to cure the problem. Sleep disorders cannot be cured just by solving the physical aspect, or by relaxing the body. It is all about reaching the brain and putting it into a positive state.
This is where hypnosis for sleep can help solve the problem. Hypnotherapy is seen as a way of reaching into the subconscious mind. People who over think and get anxious thoughts are the ones who are unable to sleep. There are behavior and thought patterns that are having a negative effect on a person’s life. These aspects of one’s persona are sometimes set and difficult to change. With the help of hypnosis for sleep, a therapist can access the deeper layers of the consciousness of a patient. This enables him to ‘install’ suggestions that will remain once the subject wakes up. It can also influence thought processes and negative emotions that are proving hard to dispel.
Before the advent of pills and other medically proven sleeping aids, which used chemicals to subdue the mind into a restful sleep, hypnosis for sleep was the most commonly used treatment for patients of insomnia and other sleeping disorders. Hypnotherapy has a long, successful history when it comes to solving the issues of the mind. It is a powerful tool in the hands of a therapist to target the problem at its core and produce lasting relief for the patient.
Hypnosis for sleep can be the most effective and side effect free treatment for insomnia. The therapist can teach a patients mind to unwind and slow down at the end of the day. A relaxed mind is a pre-requisite for a good night’s sleep. And Hypnotherapy can help achieve that.
