Therapy For Insomnia and Sleep Problems
Sleep is extremely important it helps our mind and our body calibrate helping us to process the day giving an individual time to rest and build up their strength. Insomnia is the disturbance of a normal sleep pattern, Insomnia and poor sleep can leave people feeling drained and exhausted, resulting in poor performance at work, lack of concentration and irritability. Insomnia and sleep problems tend to start in isolation but can soon develop into bad habits.
Over a period of time of no sleep the sufferer starts to believe they can never sleep. They then naturally fear the night-time, laying there for hours unable to sleep. This fear then causes them more anxiety and more stress making it hard for them to get to sleep easily. Sometimes, even when the initial problem has passed, the sufferer can still suffer from the belief and fear that they cannot sleep, therefore making the insomnia continue.
