Sleep Disorders Counselling Wolverhampton
Psychological Therapy for Sleep Disorders and Insomnia
Insomnia 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 and Psychodynamic Therapy to treat Sleep Disorders here at our clinic in Wombourne, Wolverhampton.
In general, Sleep Disorder related conditions respond well to therapy.
As a guide, if you have suffered from Sleep Disorders for a significant number of years and have experienced Anxiety about it since your childhood, then you might be best advised to undertake a course of Psycho-dynamic therapy.
If, on the other hand, your Sleep Disorders are more recent and on the whole you have been free from the symptoms for extended periods of your life, then you might benefit more from one of the briefer, “directive” type interventions.
Change Your Limiting Beliefs and Beat Sleep Disorders
If you’re committed to overcoming your sleep disorders then you really can’t do much better than by following a course of CLB with Paul.
Changing Limiting Beliefs is a psychological training programme that teaches you everything you need to know to make the necessary changes to your unhelpful thinking styles and any maladaptive safety behaviours you may have developed.
