My Approach

Plain and simple, our body needs sleep and if we don’t get enough, things start to go wrong. Whether you are a person who gets to sleep easily and then wakens in the small hours or someone who lies awake for hours when they get into bed, I am sure you can relate to what I mean.

Our work starts with ensuring all of the natural sleep health behaviours are in place. We then look at patterns.  For example, are you always awakening at the same small hour?  This will start to identify what is happening at the subconscious level that we need to address.

So how does hypnotherapy work?

Insomnia is your mind’s way of protecting you and it’s intentions are good! Under the deep state of relaxation that is hypnosis, I help your mind to understand that sleep forms a better form of protection than the method it is using, and with this new learning, results are often very quick.

Self Hypnosis

One of things I aim to teach all my clients is how to relax through self-hypnosis. This skill in itself can help tremendously in getting to sleep and if used during the day, can help overcome bouts of tiredness and give you the boost to get through the rest of the day

How long does it take?

I have had clients who have gone from 3 hours to a consistent 7 hours sleep a night after one session. Each person is unique thus some people may need 2 or 3 therapeutic sessions but progress is typically swift and long lasting.

My 9 year old son has always found getting to sleep very difficult and could lie in bed for over an hour each night without falling asleep. With young children of her own, Caroline made my son feel comfortable with their meeting immediately. Caroline’s method was simple and effective. I know very little about hypnotherapy, but there was nothing scary about the session. The only way I can describe it, is as the most calm hour ever spent in a chair. All through the power of a relaxing voice. Since his first and only required session, my son is now getting to sleep in about 20 minutes or less. My son is delighted with the result and I no longer need to dread bedtime.
