Sleep is vital. Struggling with a sleep disorder can create a host of psychological problems if left untreated.

Do I have a sleep disorder?

A good night’s sleep is paramount to both our physical and psychological wellbeing. It is the body’s way of revitalising ourselves for another day and it gives us the strength and rejuvenation to tackle life’s challenges. Without it your ability to function would be severely impaired. How much sleep you need depends on you, but if you are having trouble sleeping or you are waking up feeling exhausted and stressed, then you may be suffering from a sleep disorder.

Whilst sleep disorders are sometimes caused due to other mental health problems, such as depression or anxiety, sleep disorders can in themselves lead to those same mental health problems. Therefore, it is important that you find the right help to identify why your sleep is being disrupted and resolve the issue that is preventing you from recharging properly.

Common issues related to sleep disorders are:

  • Struggling to fall asleep
  • Waking up in the middle of the night or much earlier than you want to
  • Feeling tired or exhausted when you awake
  • Sleepwalking
  • Nightmares, recurring dreams, or night-terrors
  • Anxious thoughts that persist during the course of the night

Online Counselling and psychotherapy has helped countless people learn techniques that promote relaxation and allow body and mind to find peace before bed. You may discover that as you explore your personal sleep disorder that you uncover that there are specific areas in your life that are causing you anxiety or stress.
