The Guided Meditation and Sleep Hypnosis Podcast, called Sleep Cove, has content specially designed to help listeners unwind and fall sound asleep.

Speaking about his podcast success, which was developed in response to soaring levels of anxiety as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Christopher said, “I started the podcast as I knew the power of hypnotherapy and guided meditations to relax and help people sleep and wanted to share this experience with a wider audience." 

Christopher recognises the impact stressful times like the present-day and it's affects on getting enough quality sleep as it's often one of the first things that takes a hit. 

He added, "Pandemic anxiety, health worries, self-isolation, negative news, and poor job security compounded with reduced exercise due to lockdowns is a perfect storm that keeps people awake at night."

Just six months after the launch, the Sleep Cove podcast has become one of the largest health and wellness podcasts and was even recognised as ‘New and Noteworthy’ by Apple and a regular fixture at the top of the charts in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia.

Christopher explained how mindfulness meditation and hypnotherapy is clinically proven to help you sleep and he is reaping the rewards through positive feedback from users. He said, "The reaction to the podcast has been amazing and unforeseeable. I get messages from all corners of the world thanking me that they have had their best night’s sleep in years. It’s incredible to think that the podcast is helping so many people.

He continued, “What I have learned is that people find my voice soothing as I have even begun reading classic fiction and this has worked well to help people drift-off! The podcast is in its early days and I can’t believe the impact it has had so far and I can’t wait to see where it goes.”
