A targeted and pragmatic program for hypnotherapists to help their clients sleep  

The Problem

  • Many clients have chronic or complex sleep disorders that seem resistant to treatment

  • These sleep challenges interfere with therapy

  • There are many hypnotic scripts and protocols for simple insomnia, but few for other sleep disorders

  • Most therapists have little training in normal sleep or sleep disorders, and do not know how to evaluate sleep disturbances

What If ...

… you had a better understanding of sleep and sleep disorders

 you had a structured protocol to evaluate sleep disruptions

... you knew how to use hypnosis in a more targeted way  to help people sleep

… you understood how to use hypnotic scripts to improve sleep hygiene

… you had the confidence to write personalized scripts for specific sleep problems

… you learned to use a hypnotic sleep story

… you could help more clients with sleep disturbance

… you could increase your effectiveness, be more successful in your practice ... AND feel good because you are increasing your income while you are helping people


I can help you with that!

Let Me Introduce Myself



My name is Linda Tilley. I am:

  • Registered Psychologist in Alberta, Canada
  • Clinical Counseling Hypnotherapist
  • Three decades of counseling experience
  • I was that client, the same kind that you are trying to help, who spent years trying many different methods to improve my sleep, mostly unsuccessfully … until now
  • I also am the therapist described below – I witness the power of hypnosis, yet I have often struggled with a lack of direction and few resources for complex sleep problems


That’s why I developed the Embedding Sleep program
