One on One Sleep Therapy for Insomnia


What Is Insomnia?

Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder affecting millions of people across the globe. Chronic insomnia is defined as having difficulties falling or maintaining sleep for three or more nights per week for at least three months. This inability to have stable sleep affects patients daytime life whether through excessive daytime fatigue or sleepiness.

How is Insomnia Treated?

All it takes is a simple Google search to find a million different ‘quick fix’ treatments for your insomnia. Sleepy teas, essential oils and vitamin supplements are but a few of the things out there that guarantee a good night rest. Any success these products provide are often short lived and don’t address the fundamental causes of chronic insomnia.

There are many studies out there that look at how to best treat insomnia. What you will find is that the most commonly recommended treatment advise is to conduct Cognitive Behavioural Therapy designed for Insomnia (CBT-I).

Often when complaining of sleep problems to your doctor, you are prescribed a sleeping tablet. Some patients may find this beneficial, but studies show treating insomnia is far more effective with CBT-I than any drug used to treat sleeping problems on the market.



What are the Symptoms of Insomnia?

We need to sleep. It is essential for our health and has recently been viewed by medical professionals as being as fundamental to your health as diet and exercise. This is why many studies have correlated continuous poor sleep to poor health outcomes.

Patients suffering from insomnia however, often complain of:

  • Taking 30mins or more to fall asleep initially
  • Having difficulties maintaining sleep for more than 30mins
  • Having daytime fatigue and low energy levels
  • Having poor motivation, concentration and memory
  • Changes in mood: more anxious, stressed or irritated

It’s Important to Remember…

Insomnia can be a symptom of other Mental Health conditions, such as anxiety or depression, as well as a bi-product of other physical health conditions such as menopause or pregnancy. However, it can also develop as a condition in its own right.

By not treating your insomnia, you run the risk of having further complications to your health and increase the likelihood of a relapse of anxiety or depression.

Therefore, it is important to talk to your mental health professional or doctor about getting specific help for your insomnia as part of your broader mental health or medical treatment.
