Sleep deprivation as a result of a sleep disorder can be a hugely damaging ailment and should be addressed in the best possible way.

According to The British Psychological Society in a document published on the 28th June 2013, a lack of sleep could be a significant contributor to excessive worrying. The study revealed that feeling tired and edgy can add to anticipatory anxiety, something that is experienced by those with anxiety disorders. Sleep deprivation is linked to the brain’s insular cortex which is associated with emotional processing and a lack of sleep can stimulate this area.

The findings come as no surprise to the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) who often deals with anxious patients suffering with sleeping disorders. The NCH is made up of professional and qualified hypnotists throughout the United Kingdom who can help with a range of issues including sleep and anxiety disorders. Responding to the findings a spokesperson added:

“Sleep deprivation as a result of a sleep disorder can be a hugely damaging ailment and should be addressed in the best possible way. Hypnotherapy can help find the root of the problem as well as help the client with relaxing and de-stressing techniques to help them slip off to sleep. It can work in an effective and simple way and is a great way of avoiding risky medication such as sleeping pills.”

The National Council for Hypnotherapy continues to raise awareness of the benefits of hypnotherapy.

NCH represents over 1800 hypnotherapy professionals within the UK and is committed to ensuring the highest possible professional standards amongst our members. Those looking for help with smoking, weight, anxiety, panic attacks, habits and phobias may be helped by local NCH accredited therapists, look for the NCH seal of approval on their websites. As one of the largest registers of independent Hypnotherapists, the National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH) is actively involved with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) and strives to develop standards for the benefit of the profession, now and into the future.
