How many times have you gone to bed tired out, desperate for a good nights sleep, then struggled to get to sleep, or after only a few hours of sleep, you awaken, thinking it’s morning and realise to your dismay, that you have only been asleep a few hours?
You toss and turn, watching the time tick by on the clock, getting more and more anxious and frustrated about your lack of sleep, knowing that those precious hours available for sleep, are getting shorter and shorter as dawn approaches?
The more you try to sleep, or get back to sleep after wakening, the more impossible it seems to achieve this; the more anxious you become, the more awake you become, and so the cycle or frustration anxiety and tiredness continues. If you do get to sleep, you may often feel tired and exhausted when you awaken, feeling as though you have only just managed to nod off minutes before you needed to rise. This can make you feel tired and irritable later in the day, often around mid afternoon.
Treatment for insomnia using self-hypnosis can break this cycle, and allow your body and mind to experience a truly restful, peaceful, re-energising night’s sleep. This self-hypnosis session will encourage the mind to switch off sufficiently to induce a deep sleep in the first instance, and to stay asleep in the second instance, only awakening at the time you have designated as being suitable to end that sleep.
You will find this CD easy to listen to, with no gimmicks, subliminal messages, or irritating, overbearing music. The voice you will hear is that of a female with an English accent.

How long does it take to work?
Everyone responds to Hypnotherapy and Self-Hypnosis differently, just as people do to any form of therapeutic intervention. Some will notice an instant change and for others it may take longer, but even when it feels that nothing at all has actually happened, you’ll be surprised at just how much has changed, but this is only noticed in retrospect, when you look back at how you were before you started using self-hypnosis. Just give it time and don’t try too hard to make it happen. You will find that the more often you use self-hypnosis, the easier it will be to achieve a very relaxed state of hypnosis, and the deeper the hypnotic trance state will become.
Hypnosis has been used for centuries and is recognised by medical practitioners in the National Health Service, where it is being successfully used to control the symptoms of IBS. It has helped millions of people to stop smoking, lose weight, and conquer their phobias and fears, such as fear of the dentist and fear of flying. Positive thoughts result in positive re-actions, which bring positive success and achievement.
Since hypnosis accesses the creative unconscious part of the mind, where there is no challenge or resistance to new ideas and concepts, the mind becomes receptive and responsive in such a way that it can absorb these new ideas and concepts quickly and easily. Therefore the treatment can be much more effective, and produces longer lasting results than with many other complimentary and alternative forms of therapy.
When Hypnotherapy is used for improving health, the process can actually affect the way the body functions. By focusing on certain biological and physiological aspects of the body, whilst in a state of hypnosis, it is possible to cause blood to flow better, veins to dilate, heart rate to reduce, and white blood cells counts to increase, thus improving the immune system.
How and why does hypnotherapy produce results?
By simply listening to one of our self hypnosis recordings, you will become progressively more and more relaxed until you enter a deep, relaxed, hypnotic trance state.
All the tension and stress is eliminated from the body, and as the body relaxes so does the mind. The deep relaxation process will distract the conscious part of your mind, and while this happens, positive suggestions are given directly to the unconscious part of the mind.
Once the unconscious mind is open, it is much more receptive to the information it needs to change the unwanted experience or behaviour you want to stop or change. When you're in a deep, relaxed, state of hypnosis, you will be given 'post hypnotic anchors', which you can use when in a conscious wakeful sate to help activate the changes, such as feeling more self-confident, determined to lose weight, control a pain or fear, or to quit smoking forever.
How often should I listen?
Self-Hypnosis should be practised daily for the first 7 days, thereafter, use it until your goal is achieved, or when you feel you need to re-affirm the goal you have already achieved. You cannot use self-hypnosis too much!
When should I listen to my hypnosis session?
You can listen to your self hypnosis session anytime you like, but NOT when driving, operating any machinery or carrying out any activity that requires concentration. You should also make sure that you won't be unnecessarily disturbed when you listen to your self hypnosis session. It is important that you allow yourself 40 - 45 minutes in a safe place with peace and quiet.
Will I be in control at all times?
Yes, most certainly, the trance state of Hypnosis can be broken at any time, you will still be able to hear everything, respond to others and be fully conscious to attend to anything that you need to.
What if I fall asleep?
If you hear the count-up at the end of the recording, then you were not asleep, although it may have felt as though you were, and your subconscious mind has absorbed what it needs to. If you are unaware of the end of the recording, then it maybe that you entered into a deep state of sleep. If this the situation, you will have absorbed the information up to the point of sleeping, but not afterwards, so try listening in future in a more upright position, in a well lit room, when you are less tired.
What if I want to buy different Hypnotherapy sessions?
The “Relax and De-Stress” session can be combined with any other titles, but if you are using any other titles, leave at least an hour between them, so that your mind has time to imilate and absorb the information. Ideally, though, it would be better to resolve one issue before attending to another, as the mind can be overloaded with information, and this could reduce the effectiveness.
Are there any people that should not use Hypnotherapy and Hypnosis?
If you suffer from schizophrenia, paranoia, psychopathy, any psychosis or are violent, then hypnotherapy cannot help you. If you suffer from persistent or chronic symptoms, such as high or low blood pressure, please consult your doctor or practitioner for advice.
Disclaimer: Hypnotherapy should be used in conjunction with, and not as a replacement for any conventional medical treatment that you may be receiving. As Hypnotherapy can slow the heart beat down, we suggest that if you suffer with low blood pressure, you should check with your GP before using Hypnotherapy or Self-Hypnosis.
