Sleep and Hypnotherapy for sleep disorders and insomnia treatment

Sleep is an essential part of our daily routine and adults are encouraged to have at least 7 – 9 hours of sleep. In fact, research shows that it’s not only how much sleep we get that affects our ability to function, but also the time we sleep. This is why sleep therapy is so important for those who struggle with falling into a deep sleep or staying asleep.


You may think that once your head hits the pillow and your close your eyes – slowly drifting off to the land of dreams, that your body is done for the day. This couldn’t be further from the truth! As soon as we fall into a deep sleep, our body starts the process of healing and repair. This allows all of our organs to process the day’s activities and prepare for another day of keeping your body functioning properly.


For example, people who consistently go to bed late are depriving the body of much needed rest and repair time, which means when they wake up their body’s sympathetic nervous system goes into overdrive, so they become irritable and anxious. This puts a lot more pressure on the heart and after years of doing this, it can cause high blood pressure, strokes or heart attacks.


This is why I can’t stress enough how important sleep is and if you’re struggling to sleep it is in your best interest to explore natural sleep remedies, like sleep hypnotherapy.


Today, I just want to share the key benefits of hypnotherapy on sleep. I will also explain the process of hypnotherapy and why it is so successful for those who are struggling with sleep.


As I’ve shared before, hypnotherapy is a way to tap into your subconscious mind and replace any stressful or negative thoughts with more helpful and positive thoughts. Here are some of the key benefits of using hypnotherapy for sleep issues –

  • Promotes a deeper sense of relaxation and peace in the mind
  • Helps to calm racing thoughts that flow through the mind
  • Addresses sleepwalking, nightmares, insomnia and sleep talking
  • Helps to create a positive bedtime routine
  • Increases focus and attention span as it mutes the small chatter of the monkey mind

So how does hypnotherapy work as a natural sleep remedy?


A lot of people are surprised when I explain that my hypnotherapy sessions are nothing like the comical sessions you see on TV. It is not a stage show or a swinging pendulum and it is not like in the movies someone taken back in time to remember painful events or crimes.


Simply put, hypnotherapy allows you to tap into your subconscious mind by falling into a natural trance like state whilst still being in control of your own body. It’s just a very deep state of relaxation that welcomes the positive, mind changing suggestions created by a qualified hypnotherapist to specifically address the issue that is worrying you.


When you silence the monkey mind, you are able to listen to what is truly troubling you, which is affecting your ability to fall asleep and stay in a deep sleep. This means the suggestions that you are talked through whilst in such a relaxed state, allows you to gradually change your mindset. Studies have shown that we are more receptive to change when we are more relaxed, which supports the idea of hypnotherapy being a natural sleep remedy.


Affirmations like, “you are safe”, “you are healthy and well”, “sleep is easy, effortless and natural” and “you are letting go of the past and sleeping deeply” etc are repeated in a carefully planned script which help retrain the mind to think differently. When it comes to sleep therapy, the script can directly target the issues that are stopping a person from sleeping in order to promote a healthy night’s sleep.


There are a few steps that I follow as a qualified hypnotherapist Dubai and online–

  • Informed consent – I always talk my clients through the process so they know exactly what to expect and can ask any questions they may have. Once they agree we can start.
  • Visualization – After clients agree to the process, I start off by bringing their attention to all parts of their body – this works as a double-edged task as it helps to focus the mind but also encourages clients to relax into the position of their choice.
  • Focusing deeper – I then encourage clients to focus even deeper by thinking about specifics of the things they find calming or peaceful. What is it about these things that they love so much?
  • Helpful suggestions – When clients are totally relaxed and in a trance like state, I begin to share suggestions that target the situations they are trying to heal from or overcome.
  • Bringing awareness back – Lastly, I start to bring the client’s awareness back to where they are and give them a countdown to bring them gently however for sleep it is slightly different because I then send them into a deep sleep. For other hypnotherapies I encourage people to take their time and to adjust coming back to their conscious mind.

There are many studies that have been carried out to measure the impact of hypnotherapy on sleep worries and research shows that hypnotherapy has clear proven benefits on sleep. It helps you to sleep better and deeper – allowing the body to rest and repair as needed to function effectively.

Thank you for destroying my relationship. My partner reached out for support and you advised him that there is nothing for him to heal and that he should send his girlfriend for therapy, like this is your place to tell him. I’ve been through therapy myself and I know how to make the difference between a good therapist and someone who just wants to get more money, and the second seems to definitely be your purpose!

Nicola’s support and advice proved invaluable when my marriage was struggling. Over a series of meetings (online and fact to face, to suit our needs), Nicola helped steer us through a very difficult time. She was always calm, neutral and never made us feel like we had failed or had ‘messed up’. Nicola has a wealth of experience and keeps up with current research, but has a very unique approach to getting you back on track. With regular support materials and just being there, she helped us realise that our relationship could go on; by making us look at ourselves and helping us consider the tools we needed to move forwards. I can honestly say that I don’t think our marriage would have survived such a difficult time without Nicola’s expertise. I often listen to Nicola’s podcasts on Spotify when I’m needing a bit of extra support. Thank you, Nicola

Nicola has been a massive help. I had tried traditional counseling and it had seemed to be moving me further away from what I wanted. After listening to several of Nicola's podcasts I decided to reach out to her. The discovery call was enlightening and she described a process that was more focused on creating a better future vs reliving the pass. From there I went through her Breakthrough Program...All I can say is Wow! Her program and guidance has quickly changed my mindset which has in turn improved all my relationships and overall stress level. I highly recommend working with Nicola and can't thank her enough for her help and care.

My partner and I spent a number of sessions with Nicola discussing our relationship difficulties, both together and one on one sessions. She has been so good to talk to - incredibly helpful and understanding with our problems.My partner and I have come out of this with a better understanding and move love for each other. Nicola has taught us many techniques to use in situations were we feel at odds which has been fantastic. We would recommend Nicola 100% for relationship advice.Thank you so much again.

Nicola's marriage counselling have been life changing for both my partner and I. The learnings have been exponential and have transform us individually and as a couple. We reached out to Nicola at the lowest point of our relationship and about to break apart. Her compassionate and smart yet practical advice and exercises transform us in such a way that we are now at the best we've ever been personally and as a couple.As a result we've decided to get married and book Nicola every year for a couple's check in! I couldn't recommend her sessions more to anyone feeling stuck and wanting to be in a better place. Best investment of time, money and effort EVER. Thank you Nicola, you are an inspiration to me and many others :)
