Insomnia – the inability to sleep or sleep soundly – affects many people and manifests in various manners. Those with onset insomnia have difficulty falling asleep, while others have early morning insomnia, waking early and then have difficulty falling back asleep.
Without a good night’s sleep, people can become overly tired, irritable, lacking in concentration and susceptible to erratic mood swings.
Insomnia is frequently caused by personal stress and is a short-term problem that resolves itself with a few days. For some people, however, this sleeplessness can continue for extended periods, impacting on their daily routines and quality of life, becoming into a serious mental health condition. When it starts to affect relationships, professional performance, or a person’s quality of life, it is time to investigate professional insomnia treatments.
At Life Resolutions, our qualified psychologists fully understand the nature of insomnia, and can help you identify the causes of your sleepless nights. Once these have been ascertained, we can work together to resolve them. We can provide you with techniques for falling – and staying – asleep. We can also provide treatment for the underlying causes – such as anxiety or depression – to reduce further sleep disturbance.
