Problems with sleep & insomnia

Are you tired of struggling with a lack of sleep or poor sleep quality? Do you find yourself waking up on and off during the night? Is difficulty falling asleep affecting your daily tasks and responsibilities? Do you battle with poor concentration, attention, and memory? It's time to say goodbye to never having a proper night’s sleep.

Struggling with sleep problems and insomnia can be incredibly distressing, impacting both physical health and overall well-being. Insomnia often manifests as difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing non-restorative sleep despite adequate opportunity. This disruption can lead to daytime fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating, impacting daily life. Stress, anxiety, depression, and lifestyle factors such as irregular sleep schedules or excessive screen time before bed can contribute to insomnia. Seeking professional guidance from healthcare providers may be necessary to address underlying issues and explore treatment options tailored to individual needs. Psychological therapy can offer effective strategies for addressing sleep problems and insomnia in the long term. CBT for insomnia is the first line of treatment recommended by experts, which is a structured approach that targets the underlying thoughts and behaviours contributing to sleep difficulties. Additionally, mindfulness-based approaches can promote relaxation and enhance awareness, facilitating a deeper and more restorative sleep.

By addressing both the psychological and behavioural factors contributing to insomnia, therapy provides individuals with practical tools and strategies to improve sleep quality and overall well-being.
