Around 10% of adults have long-term insomnia, while 30% of adults experience short-term insomnia. Insomnia makes it difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep, and it might lead people to wake up too early and have trouble falling back asleep. After waking up, one feels exhausted and lacks energy.
Over time, a lack of sleep can have an adverse effect on one’s physical and mental health. A lower performance level at school or at work, reduced response time, slowed thought processes, confusion or having trouble concentrating, extreme fatigue could be few of the consequences of insomnia. One can improve the sleep quality by understanding the thoughts and behaviours that interfere with sleep and change them to those that support mental tranquillity through psychotherapy. Depending on your needs, we may implement a variety of techniques, including cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy, etc.
There can be different triggers for insomnia like stress / anxiety, bad sleeping environment, lifestyle factors, physical or mental health conditions etc. We try to actively learn and provide the guidance and support you might need to help you. Your sleep habits can also be important pillars in defining and affecting the quality of sleep. We encourage you to find things that work the best for you and make you feel relaxed. A routine that reminds your body to slow down and gradually let go of the burdens of the day is a firm step towards your recovery.
People can also experience insomnia as the result of other mental or physical health issues. It is important to learn and notice the things that affect it for better or worse. Suffering from any mental health issues at all can be challenging and can make people feel lonely in their struggles and that is exactly why we encourage you to not suffer on your own and ask for the help you require. We are here to make this journey feel a little less lonely. We hope with our guidance, support and loving environment we can help you in ways that you need and deserve.
