Are you Struggling with Paralysis
There is a large body of evidence from clinical research trials that show CBT Therapy is a highly effective method for sleeping disorders such as paralysis.
What is a Sleep Disorder?
Sleep paralysis is when you cannot move or speak as you are waking up or falling asleep. It can be scary but it’s harmless and most people will only get it once or twice in their life.
Sleep paralysis usually occurs at one of two times. If it occurs while you are falling asleep, it’s called hypnagogic or predormital sleep paralysis. If it happens as you are waking up, it’s called hypnopompic or postdormital sleep paralysis
When to seek treatment
Are you looking for a therapist?
What you need to know
Awake but cannot move, speak or open your eyes

These feelings can last up to several minutes.
It's not clear why sleep paralysis can happen but it has been linked with:
Disrupted sleeping patterns – for example, because of shift work or jet lag
Narcolepsy – a long-term condition that causes a person to suddenly fall asleep
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
General anxiety disorder
