Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)  

What is CBT-I Therapy?

CBT-I is a safe, long-lasting, drug-free, and research-based treatment to help people overcome chronic insomnia.

It consists of techniques to address the factors that can disrupt sleep regulation systems and cause and reinforce inefficient sleep patterns.

CBT-I empowers you with the knowledge you need to improve your quality of sleep.

CBT-I helps retrain your brain to have deeper, more restorative sleep.

CBT-I is endorsed as the #1 treatment for insomnia by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, the British Association of Psychopharmacology, and the American College of Physicians.

How soon will I see results?

Research shows that most people who complete CBT-I can expect anywhere from a 50% to 100% improvement in their sleep.

A treatment that in a few weeks achieves efficacy comparable with that of sedative hypnotics [sleeping pills] and over the long term achieves greater satisfaction.

CONNECTION BETWEEN SLEEP AND MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS 

Sleep problems are very common in people with mental health disorders, but for too long insomnia has been trivialised as merely a symptom, rather than a cause, of psychological difficulties.

 

This study turns that old idea on its head, showing that insomnia may actually be a contributory cause of mental health problems. A good night’s sleep really can make a difference to people’s psychological health. Helping people get better sleep could be an important first step in tackling many psychological and emotional problems.

WHY IS CBT-I SO EFFECTIVE IN OVERCOMING SLEEP PROBLEMS? 

 

CBT-I is the ONLY evidence-based treatment method for insomnia.

Unlike most insomnia “cures”, CBT-I treats the actual causes of chronic insomnia, not just the symptoms.

Most other insomnia strategies are like wild goose chases as they generally are short-term band-aid “solutions.”

Because it treats the CAUSES, CBT-I brings safe, long-lasting results.

Research shows that most people who complete CBT-I can expect anywhere from a 50% to 100% improvement in their sleep.
