Having sleep problems is normal and usually temporary, due to stress or other outside factors. But if sleep problems are a regular occurrence and interfere with your daily life, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder. Sleep disorders and sleep disturbances comprise a broad range of problems, including sleep apnoea, narcolepsy, insomnia, jet-lag syndrome, and disturbed biological and circadian rhythms. Sleep disorders cause more than just sleepiness. The lack of quality sleep can have a negative impact on your energy, emotional balance, and health.
For the estimated one in 5 people who suffer from chronic insomnia, psychologists, and our sleep problems Newcastle service can help them get a good night’s sleep through the benefits of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). How does cognitive behavioural therapy help people sleep better? Research shows that CBT reduces false beliefs about sleep (the cognitive part) and also addresses the behavioural aspect, such as what to do when you are lying in bed and can’t fall asleep.
