Sleep Disorders

Sleep Disorders are generally characterised by their “duration” and are classified as either “acute” or “chronic” (Brief and circumstantial or compounding over time).

Acute Insomnia is brief and often happens because of life circumstances (for example, when you can’t fall asleep the night before a big event the next day, or after receiving stressful or bad news).

Many people may have experienced this type of circumstantial sleep disorder and in general they tend to resolve themselves over a short period of time.

Chronic Insomnia is sleep that is frequently disrupted and occurs at least three nights per week and lasts at least three months.

Chronic Insomnia Sleep Disorders can have many causes.

  • Changes in our life patterns and routines
  • High levels of Stress
  • Shift working
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Alcohol Abuse
  • Drug problems

Sleep Disorders are often linked to other psychological or medical problems, although the link between them is not always obvious or direct.

Sleep Disorders – Onset & Maintenance

People with Sleep Disorders tend to have difficulty falling asleep (known as “onset”), staying asleep (known as “maintenance”) and/or they may also wake up too early in the morning.

Sleep Disorders – Treatment

We offer Brief Directive Psychotherapy such as CBT and Psychodynamic Therapy to treat Sleep Disorders here at our clinic in Wombourne, Wolverhampton.

In general, Sleep Disorders respond well to psychotherapy.

In the first instance, we would advise a chat with your GP to rule out any physiological problems before consulting for any kind of psychological intervention.
