As a rule of thumb you should be sleeping about 85% of the time that you are in bed. Do you want to sleep more deeply or sleep longer? Do you want to improve your sleep so you can function better during the daytime? If so, our therapists know how to help.
We use a treatment program called “CBT-I”, which stands for Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia. CBT-I has shown great success in clinical trials. It is as effective as sleeping pills in the short term and more effective in the long term. It works quickly. Usually 4 to 6 sessions are enough.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia
CBT-I combines cognitive therapy techniques with mindfulness so you will be able to quiet your mind and body when it is time to go to sleep. You will also learn how to develop and use habits and routines that promote a good night’s sleep.
If you are having trouble sleeping and find that it interferes with your mood, relationships or work, please get in touch. Our therapists can help you get the good night’s sleep that you need and deserve.
