The Effectiveness of Self Hypnosis to Overcome Insomnia: A Case Study
- Suad Sulaiman
AbstractThis study aimed at investigating the effectiveness of implementing a self- hypnosis program as a skill for
enhancing the quality of life for individuals suffering from insomnia. It involved a case study of one male
student. The participant had suffered from insomnia for six months in addition to an obsessive-compulsive
disorder. The self-hypnosis program was assessed to be suitable for insomnia cases. Pre-tests data were taken for
a six day period before training. The counsellor then trained the participant for three sessions, followed by six
sessions of self-training by the participant. On each of the self-training days, the participant registered post-test
data for three dependant variables.
Results of the means show that the program of self-hypnosis is effective in reducing the time required to sleep,
an increase in the time remaining asleep, and a reduction in the number of awake periods during sleep sessions.
Discussion and recommendations were made.
