About

Hello, my name is Cathy and I work with people who are experiencing problems sleeping. The odd night of sleeplessness is something we probably have all experienced, but chronic sleep disturbance is where sleep is regularly disrupted, and you can be left feeling irritable and exhausted during the day. Sometimes sleep disruption can be linked to underlying life experiences that are proving difficult to deal with, but it can also be the cause of depression and anxiety.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor with a special interest in how life experiences can affect sleep patterns. I offer person specific, evidence-based techniques that help to relieve sleep disturbances and any underlying emotional causes or affect. The tools I use are based upon research that supports the use of CBT for insomnia. I also incorporate humanistic approaches and evidence-based mindfulness techniques.
Sleep and mood are so closely related that it is hard to separate them, but it isn't until we experience chronic sleep disruption or insomnia that we can truly understand the full impact it has on us. If we are not getting enough sleep or if our sleep cycle is continuously being disrupted, it can affect every area of our lives. Insomnia can be caused by underlying life experiences, but it can also cause anxiety and depression. If you would like more information regarding the service I provide, please do contact me.
