Sleep or Insomnia

Sleep impacts every area of our lives and so many of us live with dysregulated sleep patterns that don’t serve us well. When you’re sleeping too much or too little, it’s easy to miss out on important events, to be distracted at work, and to have trouble with focus. Talking with a therapist about your problems with sleep can help uncover the root causes of negative sleeping patterns and help restore balance and rest to your life.
How can a therapist help with sleep problems?
Working with a therapist can help you identify why you’re having problems with sleep. Together we look at things like technology usage, work-home transitions, family life, sleeping arrangements and other practical things that impact sleep. We also identify thought patterns or underlying anxiety and traumas that contribute to insomnia or oversleeping. Talking with a therapist helps you sort out the causes of sleep problems and to create tools for balanced resting.
Some causes of sleep dysregulation:
  • Environment
  • Thought and activity patterns
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Trauma
  • Diet and exercise
When should I seek therapy for sleep problems?

When everything seems worse because you’re not getting enough sleep, talking with a therapist can help you work out the reasons behind insomnia. When you’re sleeping too much, a therapist can help you uncover the root cause of your tiredness. A therapist can also help you set yourself up to get a restful and balanced amount of sleep by showing you how to change patterns, thinking and belief systems that are contributing to sleep issues.

Regulating sleep doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time to build up different patterns, to change your environment or to address underlying anxiety or trauma. Our goal is to get you an extra half hour of sleep a night as we work together and slowly we will change your sleeping patterns, which will change the rest of your life for the better.
