Insomnia Hypnotherapy

Insomnia Hypnotherapy in Lytham, Fylde Coast and Lancashire at Lytham Hypnotherapy by Annette Brown HPD MNCH.

Lytham Hypnotherapy know that sleep is something that everybody needs. It plays a vital role in both our physical and mental health. This is because when we sleep our bodies heal and repair, and our brains process information from the day before.

The blood vessels around our bodies heal, literally regenerating overnight. Through the formation of new pathways, the brain allows us to remember information and enhance problem-solving skills. And all this happens when we’re asleep.

Sleeping problems like insomnia make it difficult for some people to get enough sleep. As well as making you feel tired, this lack of sleep can cause physical illness, increasing your risk of heart disease and even obesity. Mentally, not getting enough sleep can lead to anxiety and can make it hard for you to concentrate. Lytham Hypnotherapy can help you get over your sleeping problem.

The importance of sleep

If we have prolonged periods of sleeplessness, the damage can affect us instantly or over time. For example, if you’ve not been able to sleep and you have to drive, your inability to concentrate could cause an accident. Alternatively, over time the damage can build up leading to chronic health conditions, therefore Lytham Hypnotherapy can help you.

 

In the long-term sleeping problems can increase your risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease. This is likely to be because our blood vessels repair when we sleep, if we don’t give them the chance to heal, problems crop up.

 

Lytham Hypnotherapy is always researching and recent studies have also pointed to a link between not sleeping and obesity. Interestingly those who fail to get enough sleep are more likely to be obese. The reasons behind this are not clear. It is thought that those who don’t get enough sleep may not have the energy to exercise, or overeat to compensate for their lack of energy.

 

Sleep also helps us to learn better; it helps us to be more creative and become better at problem solving. If we start to have sleeping problems, these abilities can be hindered, Lytham Hypnotherapy can help. Over time this can affect daily life, impacting on your relationships and work life.

What is insomnia?

Insomnia is defined as difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep for long enough to feel refreshed the following morning. This happens even when you’ve had enough time to sleep through the night. Many of us will know how it feels when you just can’t drop off. It may be that you’re thinking about tomorrow’s to-do list, or you had a coffee after dinner. Or perhaps you found it easy to fall asleep, but keep on waking throughout the night. Either way, it can leave you feeling drained and stressed the next day. Those who suffer with insomnia will experience this feeling on a regular basis. Lytham Hypnotherapy can help you.

  • Feeling tired and not refreshed the following morning.

  • Different types of insomnia
  • There are several different types of insomnia, including:

 

Acute insomnia

Lytham Hypnotherapy considers when someone has a brief episode of difficulty sleeping, it is considered acute insomnia. Often it is brought on by a stressful life event, such as a relationship break-up, moving house or the death of a loved one. Because this form is typically associated with an event, it normally resolves over time.

 

Chronic insomnia

As its name suggests, chronic insomnia sees sufferers having sleeping problems on a long-term basis. At Lytham Hypnotherapy insomnia is usually considered chronic if you have had difficulty sleeping for at least three nights per week for three months or more. Those with chronic insomnia are likely to have a history of sleeping problems.

 

Comorbid insomnia

This means your insomnia occurs with another condition. It could be that you are in pain, and because of this you find it hard to sleep. Mental health problems like anxiety and depression can also cause insomnia. Lytham Hypnotherapy feels that understanding which type of insomnia you suffer from is important. This information will allow you to seek the right advice and treatment.

 

Causes of insomnia

There are many different potential causes of insomnia. In some cases it may just be one cause that leads to sleeplessness, in others it is a combination of factors. Take a look at Lytham Hypnotherapy potential causes of insomnia to see which could be affecting your sleep:

 

Physical health conditions

If you suffer from a health condition that causes you pain, you might find it difficult to sleep. Equally, if you have a condition that affects your breathing (such as asthma) this can also make it hard for you to get a good night’s sleep. Hormonal problems and urinary conditions may also have an impact.

Sometimes it is the medication you’re taking that affects your sleep. If you suspect a health problem or a medication is stopping you from sleeping properly, speak to your doctor.

 

Mental health conditions

Certain mental health concerns can create sleeping problems. If you have severe depression for example, you are more likely to suffer from insomnia. It is quite common to feel low in energy when depressed, and this is only exacerbated by insomnia. The low moods that come with depression can also feel worse when you haven’t had enough sleep. Lytham Hypnotherapy can help you to recharge your battery to feel better.

Anxiety is another condition that is often associated with insomnia. This is because anxiety makes us feel tense, worried and overwhelmed. These feelings make falling asleep very difficult. You may find that your mind is racing when you try to sleep, feeling as if you can’t ‘switch off’. You may also wake up a lot during the night because you are worried about something. After a while, you may start to worry about not sleeping, creating a vicious cycle of anxiety and insomnia, Lytham Hypnotherapy can help you.

 

Lifestyle

Lifestyle factors also influence your sleeping habits. If you drink alcohol regularly for example, you may find you are constantly waking up through the night. This is because alcohol is a stimulant, and while it may help you drop off to sleep at first, it usually leads to poor quality sleep. Lytham Hypnotherapy can help you.
