Sleep Therapy in Newcastle
Sleep Therapy in Newcastle
Sleep Therapy is a form of therapy that will help you to improve your sleep, reducing waking up throughout the night, get up at a more helpful time, and overcome nightmares.
It can be used to treat issues such as insomnia, nightmares and other sleep related problems that affect the quality and ability to fall asleep.
Several of our therapists specialise in a number of approaches that can help to improve sleep, including CBT-I (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia), relaxation training and nightmare rescripting.
Sleep Therapy in Newcastle – How Does It Work?
CBT-I is a special form of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy that has been proven to work for both short- and long-term cases of insomnia.
It is a specialist therapy designed to reset your sleep mechanism for improved sleep, and is particularly useful and proven to work for problems such as insomnia, stopping nightmares, and night time or early morning waking.
There are a number of reasons that you might be experiencing insomnia. These include problems such as OCD, anxiety, PTSD, stress, an unhelpful sleep schedule, or even physical pain or illness. Your Newcastle sleep therapist will help you to identify the root cause of your sleep problems through structured therapy sessions, whether you choose face-to-face or online therapy for sleep.
When you start CBT-I in Newcastle (or online), your sleep therapist will help you develop better strategies to help you sleep by looking at your patters, routines and how your behaviour might be affecting your sleep.
A sleep diary might be recommended to help you to spot patterns and monitor your progress, with the support of your sleep therapist. Additionally, you will learn techniques to ease common problems such as racing thoughts at bedtime, calming your mind and body with muscle relaxation, meditation or other relaxation techniques if relevant to your problem.
Dr Stuart Sadler and other trained sleep therapists at Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling can also offer Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused Therapy and Mindfulness as part of an overall personalised approach to help you to tackle sleep problems.
What Problems Do Sleep Therapy Therapists in Newcastle Help With?
Around 1 in 5 people in the UK aren’t getting enough sleep.
Sleep problems can impact other areas of your life, such as work, relationships, and your confidence. Insomnia is also linked to a number of physical health problems (such as high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes and physical pain).
Research has shown that improving your sleep can therefore improve your overall physical health as well as your mental health and help you perform better.
Insomnia has been shown to be higher in people with other physical and mental health difficulties (such as depression, anxiety, psychosis, and other problems).
Since CBT-I and sleep therapy is about getting to the root of why you are experiencing problems with sleep, problems such as anxiety, depression and PTSD can also be treated by the effective therapy approaches our therapists and sleep therapists in Newcastle offer.
