Life tends to be full of ups and downs, with no shortage of uncertainties and challenges. At times, we may find ourselves feeling overwhelmed, stressed, overworked, burnt out, depressed, lacking in sleep, lacking in meaning, struggling in relationships, or stuck and unsure how to proceed. We may also realize that we're repeating unhelpful cycles, behaviours, or thought patterns that we developed in response to past experiences and that it’s time to make some changes. It's during these times that we can benefit from additional support, perspective, and strategies.

As a Registered Psychologist, I specialize in using neurofeedback therapy. It is a very unique type of therapy that I find to be incredibly effective for many mental health concerns. Trauma, either physical or emotional, can cause the brain to lose its balance. Instead of medications, or talk therapy, we go right to the source of many issues, the brain. By training the brain to have better activity, you will notice improvements in many areas of your life! Sessions are relaxing (many people even sleep through a session), very safe, simple and effective.

How effective is treatment for insomnia?

The most effective treatments for insomnia are behavioral techniques that reduce anxiety, including anxiety about falling asleep, and allow the body’s natural cycles to be recalibrated. The most common treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), which researchers have found to be more useful than medication, with rates of success as high as 80 percent.

Are there specific medications for sleep problems?

There are many medications, both over-the-counter and prescription that treat sleep problems. Supplements such as melatonin are popular and may help, though there is little evidence that it is more effective than a placebo. Prescription medications such as zolpidem are sometimes prescribed.

Are there natural treatments for sleep problems?

There are many natural treatments for everyday sleep problems. Reducing blue-light emitting screens, setting a regular bedtime, regular exercise, reducing caffeine and nicotine consumption, and keeping the bedroom dark and cool at night are all lifestyle changes that can help those who struggle with sleep but may not reach the level of an insomnia diagnosis.

What’s the difference between having trouble falling asleep and insomnia?

Life events, stress, and anxiety can lead to sleepless nights for everyone from time to time. To be diagnosed with insomnia, a patient must experience trouble falling asleep, trouble remaining asleep, waking up too early, or non-restorative sleep at least three nights per week for at least one month. Sleep problems affect one-third to one-half of the population, while chronic insomnia affects about 10 to 15 percent of people.
