According to Sleep Health Foundation “Insomnia is said to be present when you regularly find it hard to fall asleep or stay asleep. It has several patterns. You may have trouble getting to sleep initially. Or even if you can fall asleep, you might not be able to stay asleep for as long as you would like. Also you may wake up during the night and not be able to go back to sleep for a long time.
Without treatment insomnia can lead to serious health problems including anxiety, depression and impairment in daytime functioning, involvement in fatigue-related error-making or accidents, increased use of sick leave, greater irritability and depression, and prolonged use of minor tranquillisers. All of our Clinical Psychologist are trained to help with sleep problems or insomnia and can help improve your sleep through cognitive behavioural therapy and relaxation techniques, designed to re-educate and change behavioural around sleep.
