For most of us going to sleep at night is a pleasurable experience. We may have worked and played hard during the day and our minds and bodies need to recuperate, re-energise and rest for the following day. Most of us just simply close our eyes and think some pleasant thoughts and drift off into a deep sleep. If you are one of those lucky people well I guess you won’t be reading this … unless of course your partner or family member is not sleeping !
For those who find getting to sleep stressful and who struggle to get to sleep or for those who wake up in the middle of the night facing long lonely hours of tossing and turning in their beds, bedtime is not such a pleasurable experience. As minutes turn to hours the feelings of frustration and exhaustion intensify.
Insomnia robs us of our energy and much needed rejuvenation. It robs us of our joy of life as each sleepless night is followed by an exhausted day!
Insomnia does not have to be part of your existence. Imagine what it would be like to sleep like a baby, a natural blissful sleep.
Get the Rest You Need
At Setanta Hypnotherapy Clinic we have helped many people do just that … sleep a natural blissful sleep! There are two types of therapies which we employ and we choose one of these to suit the individual client. For example, if the client has an emotional root cause for the insomnia then we choose Analytical Hypnotherapy. Another name for Analytical Hypnotherapy is Hypno-Psychotherapy. If the problem is simply a habit or if the client is a child then we choose Suggestion Therapy.
Your subconscious mind can help you to change your habits and automatic responses, allowing you to let go of anxieties and fears. Thinking thoughts of NOT sleeping create that very thing … of NOT sleeping. By accessing your subconscious mind through hypnosis you can change those negative thoughts and emotions to do with sleep and allow yourself to get the rest you need!

Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of depression which occurs at the same time every year. For most people this occurs in the autumn and winter seasons as day light hours are reduced dramatically. If the depression reoccurs repeatedly for at least two years and only occurs at a particular time of year, then you could be suffering from SAD.
Many people suffering from SAD experience all or some of the following symptoms : decreased energy, lack of enthusiasm, decreased or increased appetite, insomnia or hypersomnia, lack of concentration, loss of pleasure in activities you once enjoyed, thoughts of suicide or death, social isolation or anxiety. People affected by SAD often crave carbohydrate foods which make them feel even more sluggish so the vicious cycle continues.
SAD, like any major depression, can be very debilitating and often requires professional treatment to alleviate the symptoms. Hypnotherapy can play an enormous part in reducing the anxiety and symptoms related to this condition. At Setanta Hypnotherapy Clinic we use both Analytical Hypnotherapy and Suggestion Therapy to enable our clients to free themselves from this annual cycle of depression. Analytical Hypnotherapy allows the client to get to the emotional root cause of the condition, why you have this in the first place and others do not! Suggestion Therapy is very effective because when you experience something under hypnosis your mind reacts as if this very thing is real. Therefore, you can imagine that you are experiencing daylight, sunshine, warmth from the sun and feel the benefits as if it were a warm sunny Summer’s day.
We have successfully treated many clients here at the Setanta Hypnotherapy Clinic in Peel who have suffered from SAD. Those people are now living normal, happy, joyful lives all through the year whatever the season. So don’t just brush off this condition as just the ‘winter blues’ that you have to put up with on a yearly basis. Why not enjoy today and every day to the full!

Once we form an impression of someone or something it is hard to change that impression. If you were frightened by a dog when you were young then the likelihood is that you will have formed the impression that dogs are scary. Logically you know that all dogs cannot be the same as the dog that frightened you but logic has nothing to do with feelings. It is how you feel about dogs that governs your attitude and behaviour around dogs and these feelings are as a result of the impression you formed about dogs when you first came across them.
In much the same way people have formed an impression of Hypnosis based on how it was portrayed to them when they first came across it. Most people seem to be influenced by the image of the hypnotist on the stage putting people under their spell and making them do foolish things to entertain an audience.
Once an impression like this had been formed in the mind of a person you can understand why it might then be difficult for them to see hypnosis as a tool for healing in the clinical setting. In this regard stage hypnosis had given an impression that then closes the door to the minds of many to the power to heal.
Even the word hypnosis conjures up feelings and impressions that could not be further from the truth. If you see a person slumped over and seeming to be under the control of a hypnotist on stage it is no wonder that you would then come to the conclusion that hypnosis renders you vulnerable. You might have formed the impression that in hypnosis the hypnotist can make you do anything and this is a scary prospect for most people. This is why only the volunteers who are inclined to be exhibitionists are chosen by the hypnotist and that is the first stage of the elaborate illusion created by the stage entertainer in partnership with, a more than willing to please, volunteer.
In reality, hypnosis is a state of relaxation. In the state of hypnosis you suspend the part of you that would otherwise prevent you from entertaining ideas other than the ones you hold firmly to, including your belief in your own illness. However, in hypnosis you would not accept any suggestions given to you that might go against your own moral or ethical principles. In the clinical setting you are given suggestions while in hypnosis to get you to question your belief in your own illness. It is only in changing your mind about your illness that any change can take place, and this is where hypnosis is very effective.
Simply giving people suggestions to get better is not always the most effective approach. Therapists, like Paul McKenna, who advocate this approach, give the impression that it is the therapist who is the one in control and who is seen as a kind “Miracle Worker”! When the therapist then makes claims to the effect he can cure you and you see him in this light on TV shows and newspaper articles and in books how could you not form the impression that the therapist is the one in control and once again you are like the volunteer on stage.
The kind of therapy used by Paul McKenna is Suggestion Therapy and though it can be very effective it does not always work.
Hypno-Psychotherapy or Analytical Hypnotherapy
Here at Setanta Hypnotherapy Clinic in Peel, Isle of Man, Mary and I use a combination of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy which is also referred to as Hypno-Psychotherapy or Analytical Hypnotherapy to treat Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Insomnia and any condition with at an emotional root cause. When an emotional root cause is not an obvious reason for the condition, like Smoking, Phobias, some Weight Loss and working with children, we then use Suggestion Therapy.
For most conditions we have found that unless the cause of the condition is discovered and dealt with at the subconscious level the condition was not resolved. We have treated many people over the years who had been originally treated by therapists using only Suggestion Therapy and we found that though in some cases the original symptoms were alleviated or even disappeared they were almost always replaced by new and in some cases more severe symptoms.
An opportunity for personal development
If you would look upon your symptoms as opportunities for personal development then understanding the reasons behind your problems would make more sense and the journey of healing becomes a fulfilling experience, more a challenge than a chore.
First impressions can be misleading and especially when made about alternative options to heal yourself. Hypnosis with Psychotherapy is an effective option and its ethical humane approach makes it a therapy that is growing in popularity among medical doctors who no longer see long term medication as a satisfactory solution.
As Hypnotherapists in Private Practice here at Setanta Hypnotherapy Clinic in Peel, Isle of Man my wife Mary and I have treated many people who have come to us for a very wide variety of problems. Anxiety, Depression and Insomnia being by far the most common conditions we have been asked to treat.
Last port of call
We found that very often the three conditions are linked in that someone who finds it difficult to sleep at night often exhibits symptoms of anxiety and/or depression. Most people who come to us have tried everything and we are usually their last hope. We see this as a positive because by the time they arrive to us they have tried everything that focusses on the symptoms so when we suggest that it is time to treat the person they are more open to this.
We often use the analogy of people wanting to turn off a smoke alarm because they can’t bear the noise and we suggest that just turning off the alarm does not put out the fire. We explain that every symptom has an emotional root cause in the subconscious. If a person can’t sleep then there must a very good reason but the problem is that the reason is not available to the conscious mind. We guide people to access the subconscious to bring the underlying root cause of their problem to their conscious awareness so that they can then address the problem and in effect put out the fire. Once the fire is out the alarm goes off.
The cause of each person’s condition is unique
Every person who suffers from insomnia will unearth a different root cause for the condition. In all the years I have treated people suffering from insomnia no two have ever shared the same subconscious reason for the condition. Once the cause is discovered there is usually an emotional release called an abreaction. Someone inexperienced in dealing with abreactions could panic when it happens and this can cause further complications. That is why it is very important to seek the help of an experienced and fully qualified therapist when choosing to embark on this course of therapy.
