If you or a loved one suffer with insomnia, you know well how chronic lack of restoring sleep deprives life of its light.
Insomnia is not that occasional difficulty with sleep that everyone experiences every now and again but is the regular struggle to fall and remain asleep that is accompanied by daytime disabling tiredness and irritation that may last for weeks, months or years.
Common causes of insomnia include environmental issues (e.g. noise, light, temperature of the room), substance abuse including alcohol, nicotine or caffeine, shift work and, last but not least, stress, trauma, anxiety or depression.
Sleeping tablets, over-the-counter or prescription, do not treat the cause of insomnia and are generally not advised due to their troublesome side effects.
For long-lasting results, it is very important to address the root causes of insomnia. Hypnotherapy is well placed to support you in transforming the behaviours and thoughts that are affecting your sleep and restore a healthy sleep pattern.
