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.
If you struggle with getting a restful night’s sleep, call me on 0448 919 942 to make an appointment with me for my hypnotherapy for sleep. Melbourne residents can easily access Seddon Hypnotherapy Centre, located in Melbourne’s inner west, for better sleep strategies and quality of life.
Seddon hypnotherapy for VGB is like a surgical knife of a skilled surgeon , who knows where to cut the pathological source. And, that’s the thing about Roberta. She knows the actual sources of weight gain , which not only comes from our food consumption , but also from our past and hidden memories.
I had no experience with hypnotherapy before beginning with Roberta and wasn’t quite sure what to expect – but the weekly sessions were wonderful – calming, positive and encouraging – and l saw results immediately. The virtual gastric band worked better than l could have ever expected and, not only did l begin losing weight almost immediately
It’s not often that you have life changing moments and working with Roberta has been one of those for me. Coming from a European family I thought being able to portion control my food after 35 years was basically impossible. Having tried every option under the sun, my last option was hypnosis and for the first time in my life it worked.
This worked for me. I had my hand held gently and led to where I needed to be. I also had a few home truths told to me, which I had been using as excuses. Roberta’s kind caring manner, along with her honest, self reflective approach, was just what the doctor ordered. If you are after a complete lifestyle change, and not just a quick fix, then I can highly recommend Roberta to guide you.
VGBH with Roberta was comprehensive in its content and impressive in its results. I believe the course answered more questions than I thought I had at the start, and resulted in changes and the elimination of some major lifestyle habits that were standing in the way of my happiness.
I have had a number of attempts to lose weight in my life. As a naturally good eater and also from time to time a good ‘sometimes food & drink’ eater, I have had difficulties keeping to my ideal weight, even though I like to do regular exercise.
