Insomnia

Insomnia, defined as persistent problems falling and/or staying asleep, can be caused by many things, including mental health and medical conditions, stressful life events, bad sleep habits, specific substances, or even certain genetic factors. Whatever the cause, an inability to get the sleep you need can be incredibly hard to deal with. Insomnia can make you feel exhausted all day and it can also cause irritability, anxiety and problems with concentration or memory. The good news is that behavioral therapy for insomnia has been proven as an effective treatment for chronic sleep problems and is often recommended as the first line of defense. If you are having trouble with insomnia, reach out to one of TherapyDen’s qualified insomnia experts today.

Living with insomnia is not only distressing but has real, serious implications for your health and wellbeing. Chronically sleep-deprived people have a higher risk of developing diabetes and heart disease. A lot of counselors focus on sleep hygiene as the “cure” for insomnia, but the truth is that sleep hygiene isn’t enough. Together, we will go beyond sleep hygiene to help you sleep well again.
