Insomnia is just one of a range of sleep disorders that seems to be so prevalent in society now. Insomnia is a disorder associated with difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep and waking earlier than one needs to. It can be a debilitating disorder that is associated with a range of health conditions. Good quality sleep is so vital to our physical and mental health and is a cornerstone of all aspects of health and wellbeing. We can all relate to the effects of a bad night’s sleep. However, when sleep is interrupted over weeks and months, it makes it extremely difficult to function and in some circumstances can be dangerous, especially when it comes to driving or operating heavy machinery. When poor sleep becomes an issue, it can completely take over your life. Exhaustion will impact on your day to day performance and mood. You will struggle to do the things you need to do. Anxiety about getting enough sleep will only make things worse as it completely hijacks your thoughts, especially at night.  

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia

The good news is that insomnia is a very treatable condition, especially with CBTi (Cognitive Behavioural therapy for Insomnia), which is a specially formulated treatment for the condition. Seeing a specialist insomnia therapist will involve a thorough initial assessment to determine the exact nature of your insomnia, its causes and maintaining factors. An individually tailored treatment plan will then help you to understand the nature of sleep and how to achieve optimal sleep through a range of behavioural changes and ways to address the thinking that gets in the way of a good night’s sleep.
