There are a wide range of Sleep Disorders that can affect the quality, timing and amount of sleep an individual gets. Whilst we can all be affected by sleep difficulties at some point in our lives, when these difficulties become persistent and chronic, they can have a significant impact on our day-to-day functioning and cause distress.
Commonly known Sleep Disorders include:
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea
- Restless Leg Syndrome
Sleep Disorders are known to contribute to and exacerbate a number of mental health conditions, and can also be symptomatic of them. They are known to be associated with:
- Anxiety Disorders
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Bipolar Disorder
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Treatment for Sleep Disorders
A number of therapies have been shown to be effective in the treatment of Sleep Disorders including:
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-i)
- Mindfulness-Based Therapies
In some cases medication may also be used in conjunction with therapy, in which case additional members of our multidisciplinary team will collaborate in your overall treatment. We also offer both one-to-one and group therapy options for people experiencing sleep difficulties, including our Sleep Eazzzy group.
