Some people have trouble getting to sleep. Others have difficulty staying asleep. And many say that they do not get a full night of restful sleep.
If any of these describe your experience with sleep, hypnosis may have the relief you are hoping for. I say “may have” because hypnosis requires that the client and the hypnotist develop a powerful bond of trust with each other. The client would need to trust that I know and use successful hypnotic processes that will improve your sleep. And I need to trust that you, the client, will allow me to speak directly to your unconscious mind, and that you will listen to the CD I make for you for at least 65 nights as you are going to sleep.
Now this CD is about 30 minutes long, and it contains what you told me in our 3-hour office visit that you want me to say to you. That 65 nights times 30 minutes gives me about 30 hours of reprogramming time so that your neurological networks will lead to the sleep experience you want.
Neurological reprograming, also called “neuroplasticity,” is a fancy way to say that you can learn new behaviors, for example: walking, or driving a car, or playing a sport or a musical instrument. Another term often used is “brain training.” The 30 hours of retraining is the equivalent of practice. And you know that it takes practice to learn a new skill.
A good night’s sleep is the skill you will be practicing. Only I have made the practice as easy as possible. You would start the CD, turn off the light, and go to sleep. No need to use your awake time for this. And no need for willpower or determination (those are conscious mind aspects.) Just practice by listening to the CD as you are drifting off to sleep. And before you know it, you will be getting the full night’s restful sleep you need for good health.
