Tell me more about your INSOMNIA SYMPTOMS - let's talk about how I can help your insomnia!
How will therapy help insomnia?
At some point when the struggle with sleep started, you probably adapted your behavior in an effort to get more sleep. Many efforts to help sleep actually make the insomnia worse. These include to "trying to catch up on sleep" or "make up for lost sleep", spending more time in bed, or sleeping anytime/anywhere you can in an attempt to just feel better! Thoughts and feelings about sleep and being in your bed also change as insomnia continues. Sleep becomes a very stressful and difficult experience, rather than a relaxing and naturally occurring event.
We will work together with a specific, clinically recommended insomnia treatment program to change your behaviors and thoughts related to sleep. Essentially, it means re-teaching your body how to sleep on it's own, and building sleep confidence so that you feel certain about your ability to get a good night's rest.
