Sleep easy with hypnosis

Hypnosis for Sleep Melbourne

Mitchell (not his real name) had come to see me for help with his Insomnia. When I asked him what he did when he could not sleep, he said he would toss and turn, and would not want to get up because he thought it would prolong the process of not being able to sleep.

After tossing and turning, he would get frustrated and get up to get a glass of warm milk or cup of herbal tea.

It’s important for me to find out what strategies a client uses when they can’t sleep to determine what has been ineffective for them thus far. Sometimes, even if they get to sleep, it is not restful sleep and they wake up feeling exhausted.

We all need good quality sleep to function properly. Without it our life is a slog. In order to function well each day, we need 25% REM sleep and 75% slow wave sleep. Good sleep stabilises the workings of neurotransmitters in the brain which determine mood, motivation and emotional stability.

It’s well known that people who are depressed have as much as 3 times the amount of REM sleep as is normal and thus awaken feeling exhausted and lacking in energy.

Not having good sleep each night can also compromise the immune system, meaning you can end up feeling even worse due to complications or vulnerabilities caused by your insomnia.

How did we help?


  • Having learning about Mitchell’s strategies against sleeplessness, I asked him about his bedroom. Did he have noisy neighbours?

    No. What furniture is in his bedroom? Bed, bedside table, desk, computer, television, stereo. He worked from his bedroom, so all his work equipment was in the room.

  • After this, Mitchell and I discussed creating an environment in the bedroom that was conducive to rest. Once Mitchell moved all the work and electrical equipment out of the bedroom, it changed the energy in the room.

  • Then we talked about how he wound down prior to going to sleep. Some important factors that can be overlooked is that you should be warm (but not hot) when getting ready for bed, that your mind should not be stimulated and that the room should be sufficiently dark.

  • This means that watching TV before sleeping is not ideal. If you do, make sure the TV is not in your bedroom.

  • The best routine for getting ready for bed is to have a warm shower or bath prior to getting into bed. Choose a relaxing book or meditation to read for 10 minutes prior to sleep. Make sure the room is dark and allow your mind to empty of all thought prior to drifting off to sleep.

  • The biggest enemy to sleep is worry and rumination. Bed time is not the right time to review the day or go over the problems you are facing in your mind. It may be tempting or habitual for you to do so, but it will not help you to get the rest you need so you can function well the next day.

  • I worked with Mitchell to install strategies to deal with the worries and to learn some better ways to problem solve so it would become easier for him to clear his mind and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

  • By seeking out my hypnosis for sleep, Melbourne residents like Mitchell have been able to drastically improve their quality of life with improved sleep.
