NHS: Night Terrors

Many children have nightmares and night terrors, but most grow out of them. Some adults also can also have them.

Check it’s a night terror or nightmare:

Night terrors and nightmares are different and happen at different stages of sleep.
During a night terror you may talk and move about but are asleep. It’s rare to remember having a night terror.
Nightmares are bad dreams you wake up from and can remember.

Night terrors are most common in children between the ages of 3 and 8, while nightmares can affect both children and adults.

NHS: Managing disturbing dreams and nightmares

We can have all sorts of dreams, sometimes really nice ones that we don’t want to end but this section aims to consider in some more detail dreams that we find disturbing and times when we experience nightmares.

For the purposes of this summary dreams are something that you remember in the morning when you wake up. Nightmares, on the other hand, wake you up during the night and can often make it difficult, if not impossible, for you to return to sleep.

After a traumatic event it is not unusual to experience disturbing dreams and nightmares, it is often the way in which our brain processes, sorts out and comes to terms with the events that have happened. Quite often the dreams and nightmares will then reduce both in terms of how frequently they take place and in terms of how distressing they seem. This is a good sign that you are moving forward that the events are seen as being in the past and that recovery is taking place.
