Dream Question: why do I have nightmares?

Dreams are often symbolic messages to draw our attention to a specific situation. Sometimes the only time we might remember a dream is by the horrific nature of their content.

Nightmares are bad dreams which can stay with us for hours, days or even years. They are often frightening, graphic and may cause you to wake up in a panic, crying or attempting to scream  – that’s really what separates them from other types of dreams.

I talk about nightmares in my book Answers in the Dark: Grief, Sleep and How Dreams Can Help You Heal. The book aims to join the dots between our sleep, dreams and our mental health, specifically how grief shows up, even if no one has died. I explore some of the big myths of sleep, offer a Sleep Cycle Repair Kit including mindfulness activities as well as some top tips to help you decode your dreams.
