Assessment and Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is recommended as the first-line treatment for chronic insomnia in adults, according to the NICE guidelines. Accurate assessment and a full clinical history is vital to define insomnia status, to exclude other sleep disorders, and to determine the most effective therapy.

 

Our sleep clinic will help you to understand and treat your insomnia, and assist you on your journey to regaining restful and restorative sleep.

Meet

One to one video consultation to meet your therapist. An opportunity to build a relationship that will grow and optimise the success of your treatment. 

You will be guided by the same therapist on the entire journey from assessment through therapy to a successful outcome.

This is a very important journey and you will be fully supported along the way.

Assess

Our assessment session will take you through your history, including symptoms, medications, and possible triggers.

The likelihood of other sleep disorders will be considered.

A sleep diary is introduced as a vital tool to understand your sleeping routines and will be used to review the progress at the start of each follow-up session.

Treat

Treatment is usually provided over 4 to 6 one-hour sessions. The sessions are scheduled weekly to fortnightly but can be tailored to your specific needs and/or availability.

Each consultation will focus on one CBTi component designed to achieve specific goals on your journey to a good night's sleep, every night.
