Insomnia treatment that works!
You can get your life back!
Are you sick and tired of tossing and turning, sleepless nights and tired days? If chronic insomnia is affecting your life, I have great news for you:
Research shows that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia [CBT-I – not your usual CBT] is not only effective but is the best treatment for chronic insomnia.
Even if you’ve been struggling with insomnia for years, even if you’re dependent on sleeping pills, CBT-I is designed to help your brain re-learn how to have deeper, more restorative sleep.
What the research says
We will work together to improve your sleep!
If you ever find insomnia creeping back, you can go back to what you learned with CBT-I and nip it in the bud.
Some people might benefit from a 'booster' session or two down the road.
If you feel like your life is being wasted by insomnia CBT-I may be able to help.
Sleep medications work by drugging you so you can pass out. Unfortunately, they can change the structure and quality of sleep and may leave you feeling unrefreshed or groggy the next day.
On the other hand, CBT-I treats the causes of insomnia, not just the symptoms.
Whereas sleep medications tend to cause dependence over time, and insomnia often comes back with a vengeance when sleep meds are stopped, the benefits of CBT-I are long-lasting, even after you’ve finished treatment.
People who complete CBT-I report:
Falling asleep faster
Sleeping more deeply and soundly
Sleeping more efficiently
Spending less time awake in the night [Yes, say goodbye to tossing and turning in bed!]
Having less anxiety and dread at bedtime
Feeling less fatigues
Feeling more rested energetic and productive
And most important of all:
Improved quality of life
If you’re ready to get better quality sleep and increased energy during the day, give me a call for your free 15-minute consultation.
I’d love to help you rediscover what it feels like to enjoy natural, efficient, deep, restorative sleep.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!
You might be surprised to learn how short term insomnia can become long term. In as little as 5 sessions, you can have the tools you need to help overcome insomnia.
Most people start having deeper, more restorative sleep (for a significant part of the night) in a surprisingly short time, usually within a few weeks, and sometimes just a few days.
And sleep typically continues to improve for weeks to come.
If you’ve been living with chronic insomnia for a long time, I don’t blame you for being skeptical. But you don’t need to believe me. Click here to see what the research says.
I am more than excited to be offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia.
I’d love to work with you over a period of a few weeks to support you through the steps needed for deeper, more efficient and restorative sleep. Say goodbye to tossing and turning all night.
It’s not all in your head!
Our bodies’ sleep regulation systems can become disrupted, causing short term insomnia to become long term.
Over the course of several weeks, you’ll learn and practice the strategies that can help you reverse the vicious cycle.
This will include things such as powerful changes you can make to your sleep and wake routine, how to use light to strengthen your circadian rhythm so you can fall asleep and stay asleep more easily.
And of course, you’ll gain skills for calming that middle of the night anxiety, and the all too familiar busy monkey mind.
While CBT-I is surprisingly effective for most people, there are a few conditions or circumstances where it is not suitable – and some where we might need to modify the CBT-I approach.
To help reduce the chance of you investing time and money into beginning this therapy – if it might turn out to not be the best fit for you right now – we can discuss some of those possibilities during this free 15-minute consultation.
