If you’re feeling overwhelmed, fearing the worst or constantly overthinking, seeking counselling could help you. You may be experiencing depression, sleep troubles, relationships problems or lacking energy to face the day ahead. Even though you have people in your life, you may feel that you have nobody to confide in, leaving you feeling alone. If this sounds familiar to you then reaching out for counselling and speaking to someone impartial could be a helpful step.

My way of working is somewhat dependent on you and your wants from a therapy space. I am trained to work with CBT, person-centred and attachment based therapy. I have done additional training in: Somatic Abolitionism, Emotional Regulation Skills and CBT adapted to work with those that self-define as autistic. I have worked with many clients and believe therapy works best by meeting the client where they are and towards what they identify they need. I work openly with race and other forms of systemic oppression in therapy and support clients from minoritised identities to explore this in therapy.

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors

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.
