Turn Stressful into Restful: Enhancing Sleep through Self-State Strategies

Sleep, often overlooked in our fast-paced lives, plays a pivotal role in maintaining optimal psychological and physical health. Even with the understanding of its profound impact on mental and physical wellness, many still struggle with getting the slumber they need.


Many psychological disorders contribute to sleep challenges, especially in the field of trauma. Research shows that treating sleep can help PTSD but treating PTSD doesn't necessarily help sleep, thus all trauma treatment should include a sleep component.


By utilizing an Ego State Therapy approach combined with hypnotic strategies and language we can explore the unconscious and work with states of self that have inner wisdom about the cause, maintenance, or even the solutions to getting a more restful sleep. In addition to making sure the whole-self is prepared for a more restful sleep, we will also explore the importance of self-language and hypnotic components that can either block or enhance our ability to sleep well,
