Sleep disorders & hypnosis
Sleep disorders can occur as an isolated problem or in the context of mental health. In my experience sleep disorders are often triggered by an overstimulation of the nervous system. Mental stress can be triggered by a overwhelming workload (burn-out), unresolved emotional conflicts and fears.
It is typical for people with insomnia, that occurs as a result of burnout, is that they have trouble falling asleep. The brain of that person is in a permanent ‘must-do’ mode during burnout, which prevents regular sleep patterns.
Sleep disorders can also be a sign of depression, especially if the affected person wakes up very early (typically 2-4 am) and then starts thinking. In most instances these symptoms include symptoms typical of depression such as sadness and unhappiness.
Insomnia occurring with short-term symptoms can usually be solved in only a few sessions through the use of hypnosis for sleep.
If sleep disorders are caused by mental illnesses such as depression, burn-out or anxiety, in my experience, only the treatment of the mental illness leads to the permanent solution of the sleep problem. Depending on the issue, it may take some time.
