  • Thinking about sleep?

    Have you been thinking about sleep lately?

    I have. Maybe you’ve noticed that it takes a lot of tossing and turning to get to sleep?

    Perhaps you’re waking up so many times in the night you lose count?

    Do you feel refreshed when you wake up?

    These sleep related difficulties, and others, can be effectively treated with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

    What does “effectively” mean? …that people who have participated in research trials reported that they were able to get to sleep faster and more easily; stay asleep longer; and felt more refreshed in the morning after participating in a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) program focused on the behaviour and thinking associated with sleep. These findings have been documented by several authors, multiple times (Edinger, J.D. & Carney, C. E. (2015). Overcoming Insomnia: A Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Approach, Second Edition. New York: Oxford Press.; Jacobs, G. D., 2009. Say Good Night to Insomnia. New York: St.Martin’s Griffin.).


    Here’s something else to consider: the people who participated in the research studies also reported that their sleep experience continued to improve once they completed the therapeutic program.

    Imagine that! A treatment that works and continues to improve your sleep experience, even after you’ve completed the program. This particular result significantly contrasts with what people generally report about using sleeping pills, such as the pills become less effective after a few weeks and the side effects are worse that not sleeping.

    At Now in Colour, we are pleased to offer individualized CBT sleep treatment programs, completed over a period of 6 to 8 weeks. Our clients report similar results to those discussed above.

    Please contact Katherine if you would like to start sleeping better!!!
