(Why we sleep, Matthew Walker, 2017 )
Or do you spend your nights tossing and turning, checking the clock and worrying how on earth you will cope with all you want to do the next day ?
Perhaps you can get to sleep, but you have problems staying asleep, or wake too early in the morning.
Sleep problems leave us feeling exhausted, depressed, makes concentration difficult and can pretty much ruin our lives .
There is so much information in the media now alerting us to the negative health implications caused by a lack of sleep, and that can fuel our anxiety and frustration, but very little help seems available to resolve the problem.
Clients come to WyeSleep feeling they will never get a good night's sleep, and their insomnia must be damaging their health!

If you struggle to get the sleep you need, contact WyeSleep today, and start to feel confident again that you can sleep naturally !
We will do our best to help you.
Every client is offered a 90 minute assessment, giving you time to explain your problem and tell us how you have tried to resolve your sleep difficulty in the past.
We then ask you to complete a sleep diary, to give us an accurate picture of your current situation.
With this information, we devise a bespoke treatment plan.
Treatment time varies, and can be anything from 2 -6 sessions depending on the nature of the problem. If symptoms of a sleep disorder are identified, some further investigations can be arranged, either through the NHS, or privately, with a consultant sleep specialist.
All treatment used is evidence based, and our aim is that once you finish the programme, if your sleep is disturbed in years to come, you will have the knowledge and confidence to use these tools again.
WyeSleep can support clients on a 1:1 basis with a wide range of sleep issues from insomnia, excessive snoring, jet lag
or sleep-disturbed children for example.
Clients range from the age of one year to older adult.
Following a comprehensive sleep assessment, a bespoke sleep plan is designed to address the issues, working to improve the clients sleep.
The first line treatment for insomnia is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia(CBTI). This is a different therapy to CBT, as it integrates specialist knowledge of the science of sleep and sleep disorders.
Joanna will help you to understand what is stopping you from sleeping and give you evidence based techniques to address the issues that are affecting you.
She adapts the programme to suit your needs, so the duration of treatment is different for everyone, but usually 4-6 sessions will see a significant improvement in sleep quality and quantity.
Joanna is also trained in Acceptance and Commitment therapy, which is also used effectively for the treatment of insomnia.

Sleep deprivation can be the cause of workplace accidents, low productivity and an increase in work related errors.
During the initial appointment, a full history of the sleep difficulty is taken, to gather an understanding of the possible causes of the problem. It is important to establish that insomnia is the cause of the sleep difficulty and not another underlying sleep disorder, which may require different treatment.
We then work with the client to formulate a bespoke plan to ensure we meet the individual's specific needs.
In the same way as exercise can take time to see results, changing a sleep pattern may involve a change in routine or habit, but as the plan is evidence based, the results can be life changing, with a little perseverance.
Although WyeSleep is authorised to prescribe medication, it is rarely used . Benzodiazepines, or Z-drugs, to aid sleep initiation are not prescribed.
