Emotional reasons why we have trouble sleeping

There are many emotional causes for not being able to sleep. Being stressed / have racing thoughts/ problems or

worries on your mind or are depressed or suffering from panic disorders can all contribute to not being able to

sleep.

Having had problems with sleeping myself and having over 60% of my clients reporting sleep problems I decided

to focus on helping people deal with this issue

What we can do about dealing with your sleep problems.

When I work with someone who is having trouble sleeping I use a variety of different approaches:

1. Relaxation

2. Self hypnosis

3. Hypnosis

4. EFT

5. Problem solving

6. Dealing with emotional issues such as stress, anxiety, depression

7.Teaching people about natural remedies and resources they can use (this is all done with the understanding

that people

8. Teach people the best things they can do while they are learning how to get the best night’s

sleep if they can’t fall asleep or they do wake up prematurely

This process usually takes between 2 and 4 sessions. This may vary for different individuals –

but we should know between our first and second session if we are making progress.

 

ANXIETY

ANXIETY

Can you put in to simple language exactly what anxiety is?

People struggle for years with issues. They are embarrassed or they think that
there are no answers, or that there isn’t anyone or anything that can change
the way things are. I was surprised to find out that the average time that
someone struggles with a problem before going for help is 8 years

Let’s talk about these feelings.

Often times people talk about feeling anxious depressed, or obsessing. I want
to give you a “common sense” plain English definition of these feelings. Being
able to identify where we are emotionally is an important step towards dealing
with the discomfort that you are experiencing.

Have you ever felt:

jumpy
restless
your mind won’t stop
hard to sit still
just nervous
heart beating like it’s going to jump out of your chest (after the possibility of
physical problem has been eliminated)
no matter what you do you want to jump out of your skin

That’s what psychologists call anxiety.
