What sleep concerns are bothering you?

Are you experiencing chronic broken sleep and daytime tiredness? Feel stuck on sleep medication that's no longer working? Losing trust in your ability to sleep? If you’re spending more time night and day preoccupied with signs of poor sleep, and trying different things to resolve it, you may have noticed a struggle starting: that the harder you try to make sleep work, the worse it gets.

LetSleepHappen is about this paradox of insomnia: understanding how worry, vigilance and desperate efforts to “make” sleep happen, actually undermine your trust in your brain’s sleep-wake regulation, and unintentionally make sleep worse.

The path out of insomnia involves training core sleep-wake behaviours and thinking that are the bedrock of good sleep, and understanding and accepting your brain and body’s innate sleep regulation and defence mechanisms.

We can help you start building the solid foundations that promote trust in your sleep and give you the confidence to let go of the insomnia struggle. Try our sleep diary for 2 weeks then contact us about how a psychological treatment can help you overcome insomnia, reduce sleep medication, cope with daytime tiredness, and get your sleep-wake cycle back to normal.
