Sleep & Insomnia

This is one of the worst problems because a bad night sleep often makes for a bad day. Insomnia responds well to hypnotic techniques because of course we are in a subconscious state when we are going to sleep and while we are sleeping. (See Levels of Hypnosis.) Please click here to purchase a CD or MP3 on Tranquil Sleep. Click here for my article on Insomnia.

Types of sleep problems that respond well to hypnosis:

  • Dreams or nightmares, either recurring or periodic, are the mind’s way of communicating with us. Through hypnosis you can “see” what the dream is about (dreams are often symbols) and eliminate the negative effects of them.
  • Insomnia (can’t get to sleep or can’t stay asleep) can be debilitating. Lack of sleep leads to irritability and lack of performance. Hypnotherapy will “retrain” the mind to sleep peacefully and wake up only at the time you want.
  • Frequent waking is often caused by worrying about life issues. Through specialized techniques you train your mind to let go, quiet down, and stay asleep.
  • Night eating can be conscious (aware) or subconscious (not aware). It is best to use a combination of positive suggestion and looking at the source of the problem.
  • Restlessness during the night disturbs the sleep patterns. It can be caused by anxiety or a medical problem. Through hypnosis you can lower your stress, learn the “relaxation response” and improve your sleep quality.


“I have been to see Laurie for a number of “life issues” over the last 5 years and every time she has helped me to work through the individual issue before me with results much faster than counseling or anything else I have tried. She is very good at what she does and does it from a non-judgmental approach. I would highly recommend her services! I have seen Laurie for issues with family rejection, grief and loss of a spouse, anxiety/stress, and insomnia.”

“Laurie, Just wanted to update you that my son as had 2 nights of perfect sleep since we saw you on Monday!  Thanks so much!”



“Good news! I slept through the night and had a ton of energy and happiness today. What a relief! Thank you!”

“I just wanted you to know how much your sleep CD is helping my husband, Bruce.  He wakes up in the morning and says, “Well, Laurie helped me sleep again”.  This is fabulous because he has been having major sleep issues for quite awhile. Anyway, I wanted you to know and tell you how much we BOTH appreciate it!”



“When I arrived at my first session with Laurie, I arrived in fight/flight panic mode, confused, angry, resentful, and experiencing the loss of my entire alcoholic family of origin, some of them quite abusive.   She tuned into my issues so quickly and within seven sessions, I was working out of the depression, connecting to my spirituality again and have stopped all addictions including smoking.

I had been seeing a MFT regularly for almost two years without nearly the results I have seen with Laurie.  I no longer see Laurie regularly, but with the CD’s she provided me, all I have to do is put on the CD and her amazing voice is inside my subconscious again, spinning the magic that she is so adept at doing.   If I need her, I know she is there and I can make an appointment.

Laurie’s workshops are great, and we try to attend often.   My husband beat his sleep disorder, and we are planning to use Laurie’s amazing talents for our children who also have some of the same issues I did.    Words cannot express what this woman can do and how good she is at doing it.

If you have found Laurie Miller as we as a family did, you are definitely in the right place at the right time, with someone who can help and open you to the freedom of being a whole, healthy and spiritual being.  Thanks Laurie!”

“Bob’s sleep is sooooooo much improved, I just can’t believe it – thanks for helping him. When he wakes to go to the bathroom (age related!!) — he is able to fall back to sleep and I particularly notice that he seems more rested during the day.”

“After not sleeping for almost 2 years I was ready to try anything – seeing Laurie at Hypnosis Concepts has truly changed the way I sleep. There is a peace now when I go to bed and my sleep is getting better each and every night. I would recommend this to anyone that struggles with sleep problems – it works and its medicine free!”

“Here is a short update: I am 100% fine (sleeping without disturbance or waking up) and have learned very much through these nightly “sessions of mine”!! (listening to his sleep CD). Thanks again for your wonderful supportive and encouraging help!!!”

“I have very good news: since the beginning of April I can sleep every night and be fresh for the day. I can work and live and be creative nicely. This 6-month adventure has been one of the toughest times in my life, but I never gave up hope and you helped me a lot in many ways.”



“When we last talked, I don’t think I was willing and able to give you the credit that I now see you deserve. Now, as then, I don’t understand how what you do works (and I am inclined to intellectualize everything). But a colleague put it all in perspective when he observed, “Richard, you don’t really know why or how pills work? Why should hypnotherapy be any different? Consider the outcome.” True, so true.

And the outcome has been truly remarkable, with a sense of completeness that I would not have thought possible when I first walked into your office. Amazing! The results go beyond the particular concerns that caused me to “try” you, constant tension, lack of sleep, and drinking. I don’t think I am in full remission on all counts, but I moving rapidly in the right direction on all counts. Beyond the particulars, I’ve experienced a dramatic change in outlook on life, having moved in a matter of couple of months from some level of depression to a level in which life has regained its forward beat. I feel as though I have been able to reclaim major elements of my “best me’s” of the past, at least the ones with whom I can go with, I hope, into the future.  You have my most sincere and deepest gratitude.”
