Therapy to help with insomniaInsomnia


Almost 60 percent of adults now report difficulty sleeping. Sleeping pills seduce people with an empty message that if they take this pill, their sleep problems will disappear. What the makers don’t tell you is that many cause daytime sleepiness, cognitive impairment, dizziness, unsteadiness and dependence on the drug. A term created by doctors called “rebound insomnia”, when a person stops using the medication and insomnia returns and may be even worse.

insomniaThe psychological causes of insomnia are recognised as being related to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Unresolved personal issues


Sufficient sleep is required for a healthy long life. When we sleep, we rest and gain energy for a new day. But sleep does more than that. When we dream, we process all the events of our daily life. Sleep is important in laying down long-term memories. After a night without enough sleep, one feels exhausted and irritable. But after a good night's sleep, one feels rested, refreshed and full of energy.  No wonder that it's so important to parents that their child sleeps through the night. It influences the entire family's life and wellbeing.


The Therapy: The presenting issue will be dealt with in a relaxed initial consultation which will allow for all aspects of the therapeutic process to be discussed and all questions answered openly, fully and confidentially.
