Get to sleep, stay asleep
You do not need to feel like you struggle to be in control of you or your child’s sleep.
Our ability to sleep is an innate skill, however due to circumstances and physiological changes we can often find ourselves in a position where we no longer feel in charge of our sleep. We end up chasing our tails trying numerous remedies, medications and behaviours which sometimes end up making it worse!

How it works
Sleep therapy offers the ability to pre-assess your specific sleep difficulty and to customize the approach using the 4 main areas to address your specific sleep concerns. In addition you will learn easy techniques and feel empowered to take back full control over your sleep and be able to maintain this control.
Sleep appears very mysterious to many of us but when we break it down we become aware that we are more than able to maintain control over our sleep and maximize the quality of sleep over quantity. Everyone can improve the quality of their sleep.

In most cases, attending a workshop or 2-3 individual consultations is sufficient to set up your own sleep re-training program for yourself or a child which needs to be implemented to see results. We provide on-going support and most adult clients see results within or by 4 weeks. Children and Teens often see results sooner depending on the consistency of application of the program.
