Psychotherapy for sleep disorders

Sleep disorders are a growing problem in the modern world. They are so prevalent that it has been estimated that one-third of the population suffers from sleep problems. There are many reasons for this. Some people suffer from insomnia, which means they have trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, while others suffer from narcolepsy, which means they have trouble staying awake during the day. Some people also suffer from apnea or restless leg syndrome, which both make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep.

These types of disorders can be caused by many different things, such as stress, anxiety, depression and more. Psychiatrists and psychotherapists have been working with people to help them get better sleep for years — finding them relief and fixing the underlying issues that are causing the disorder in the first place.
