Both cognitive behavioral therapy and hypnotherapy have been used successfully to treat sleep disorders, so I decided to give this approach a try. Your doctor may also be able to refer you to a hypnotherapist or recommend resources (such as books or audio material) that can help you learn self-hypnosis for better sleep. With its focus on physical and mental relaxation, hypnotherapy can be a highly effective treatment for sleep problems. Sleep hypnosis is the use of hypnotherapy to treat sleep problems.
As soon as you have reached a deeply concentrated state, the hypnotherapist can offer you advice tailored to your specific problem.
How many hypnosis sessions are required for sleep disorders?
The study concluded that the use of self-hypnosis as a treatment program for menopausal-related sleep problems was generally acceptable for women. Simple yet fundamental changes to your habits and environment, known as “sleep hygiene,” can make a big difference for many people. People usually turn to hypnosis to change behaviors, such as smoking or overeating, that they couldn’t otherwise change. The initial consultation should tell you what to expect during your treatment and how many sessions it should last.
However, I usually find that clients need between three and six hypnotherapy sessions for sleep disorders to reach the state of rest that allows them to sleep.
