Insomnia Sleep Issues
Cassie Bush 2018
I had not slept through the night for over 4 years. I was desperate and walking around like a zombie so exhausted barely able to function. I had 2 sessions with Cathy and listened to the recording she gave me every night for 30 nights. I now sleep through the night “I cant thank you enough”
Simone (not her real name) came to see me in September 2016, as she had not slept through the night for 8 years experiencing raging insomnia
She had suffered a pretty traumatic event at the start of those 8 years. She was quite resistant at first and sceptical as to whether the hypnosis could help her sleep however she was in the end prepared to give it a go. I gave her the hypnosis and a recording to listen to . I spoke to her around 2 weeks later to see how she was going. She reported back she could not believe it – she was now getting off to sleep and staying asleep after listening to the recording. She said to me “You taught me that all I had to do was to stop myself thinking and quieten the thoughts down.” I am making this sound easy which its not, usually clients see me for at least 3 sessions. For Jill obviously something clicked for her at the subconscious level and she was able to get the result she wanted. I am very happy for her as when we don’t sleep it affects every area of our life negatively. I think Jill’s desire to try the hypnosis and believe in it overrode her doubts and that’s why it worked for her.
Peter not his real name May 2016 came to see me as he suffered from chronic insomnia for the past 2 years. Peter had the added problem of having to wear a breathing apparatus and usually averaged around 3-4 hours sleep a night .
He was worried about waking up on time for work which for him starts very early in the mornings. Over a period of 6 weeks of face to face hypnosis and listening to a recording I made him Peter gradually increased his sleeping some nights to 6 hours. I also gave him a dvd to watch and he commenced a weight loss program of his own iniative and has lost 4 kilos. Peter’s goal is to lose the sleeping apparatus and he understands it is a process to unlearn the patterns of insomnia he has been doing for the past 3 years.

You are now feeling so tired that in a few seconds you will be asleep”
If you can’t sleep and yet you are feeling so tired the words above very welcome . Insomnia can be the result of worry, fears, anxiety, and badly functioning brain wave patterns. In order to fall asleep, your brain must go from a BETA brain wave into ALPHA. Alpha state is where everything is dreamy, where visualizations are clear and that sleep switch in your brain is ready to let you go into DELTA and THETA, and be asleep. So, how do you make this happen? When the conscious mind is busy, with worry, anxiety, fears, anger, emotional conflicts, etc. the brain has a hard time letting go of it’s conscious processing. Some people hear music in their head, repeat endless statements with their inner voice or just worry so much about not being able to sleep that they indeed cannot sleep! If you have insomnia, you know the problem. You start worrying early in the day about whether or not you are actually going to be able to sleep that night. And once you miss a night of sleep, you worry even more about not sleeping the next night. And this PERPETUATES the problem. Worrying about insomnia creates the insomnia. You can change it. But you are going to need help. Your brain is an expert at having insomnia. It does not know how to do it any differently. If it did, you wouldn’t have the sleep disorder any more. So, in order to sleep deep, you are going to have to teach your brain how to go instantly into an alpha state, how to use subconscious triggers to eliminate worry and anxiety and stay asleep once you are asleep This is what we do in hypnosis teach you how to relax and give you the method that you can use yourself so that you can hypnotise yourself- we give you a cd to listen to for 30 days or whenever needed. You may not realise this but sadly lack of sleep is very common, and can be extremely stressful, impacting lives by reducing energy, making you irritable, poor performance at work ( and home ), difficulty remembering things, and bad concentration. There are enormous health problems.
THURSDAY, June 19, 2014 (HealthDay News) — A short session of hypnosis might lead to a better night’s sleep, says a team of Swiss researchers.
After listening to a sleep-promoting audio tape containing hypnotic suggestion, women who are suggestible to hypnosis spent two-thirds less time awake, and about 80 percent more time in deep sleep compared to those who slept without the hypnotic suggestion.
