The most common cause of insomnia is stress and anxiety if there are no other obvious problems such as noise or an uncomfortable bed.

Our brains sort through the issues of the day with REM sleep (rapid eye movement) at night we re-run the events of the day and change them from being and emotional memory to a narrative memory. A memory we have control over.

We are all aware of how REM works. Someone at work or college really upsets you and you tell your friend or partner about it and they say to just forget about it but you really cant. You are still thinking about it when you go to bed that night.
During your REM sleep you will re-run the event either as a clear or metaphorical dream and you will move it from one part of the brain to another where you have control over it. When you awaken in the morning you will either have forgotten about the person who upset you or you will certainly be saying something like “why do I allow these people to get to me so much”.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps insomnia by restricting the amount of stress and anxiety you accumulate and as a result helping you to get a better night’s sleep. In return, the better night’s sleep we get, the more our REM sleep can do its job sorting through our daily issues relieving our stress and anxiety.
