Sleep Disorder Psychology Assessment

Sleep Disorder Assessments

Sleep is so integral to our wellbeing but is often neglected as poor sleep is dismissed as just being a product of our busy lives. Poor sleep can often be a symptom of anxiety and depression, or stand alone as its own condition, like insomnia (lack of sleep), or hypersomnia (too much sleep). Either way, poor sleep is a potential indicator of a range of conditions, so it’s important to get to the heart of the matter with a comprehensive assessment to inform treatment. A comprehensive assessment via a Sleep Hygiene Audit will help you understand the nature of your issues and inform treatment and potential medical follow up, including a comprehensive sleep study.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBTI), is a highly effective and evidence-based approach to address sleep difficulties. Our psychologists will work with you to identify the specific factors contributing to your sleep challenges. Through CBTI, you will develop a plan to address the negative thought patterns and behaviours that disrupt sleep, while adopting healthier sleep habits and relaxation techniques. CBTI helps individuals develop a consistent sleep routine and enhance sleep hygiene, leading to improved sleep quality and duration.
