Letting go and falling asleep
Insomnia can be a symptom of an overactive mind. Perhaps there is a problem letting go of something from the past and mentally repeating it at night in a cyclical way, or worrying about something in the future and creating anxiety.
The problem of insomnia itself often leads to a fear of not being able to sleep which intensifies the problem itself! Anxiety is the opposite to relaxation, and relaxation is the precursor to deep sleep. Sleep follows going to bed at a regular time, letting go and allowing the subconscious mind to take over and pass into deep sleep.

Common problems that stop people sleeping
At the core of hypnotherapy to treat insomnia is helping the client to understand what is stopping them sleeping and what they can do about it.
A normal day should schedule time for waking, getting ready for work, working, eating, resting and sleeping. Modern technology is making it increasingly difficult to “switch off”. Continuing to react to messages about work at night keeps the brain alert and makes it difficult to sleep.
Computer, phone and tablet screens contain a bright light which the brain reacts to in a similar way to the sun, creating chemicals that keep the mind awake. Darkness is a signal that it is soon time to sleep and people need to have time to unwind at the end of the day as well.
It is also common for people who have trouble sleeping to drink too much coffee in the day and eat foods that are high in sugar and give energy. Therapy looks to illicit understand of general lifestyle choices and help the client to become aware of all aspects of change that are necessary for successful therapy for insomnia.
