Lying in bed, wide awake and exhausted at the same time, calculating exactly how little sleep we’ll be getting even if we manage to finally nod off now.
Insomnia is awful.
With personal experience of chronic insomnia from primary school until my mid 20s, I love being able to use what I’ve learned to help clients and students sleep well.
I’m a Senior Sleep Recovery Practitioner having done additional training with Lisa Sanfilippo (author of Yoga Therapy for Insomnia and Sleep Recovery).
As well as working with individuals online, before moving to Westport, Co Mayo, Ireland, I taught a weekly Sleep Yoga class at Benton Hall Golf & Country Club, Witham, Essex.
And before corona, I facilitated a Sleep Retreat at Westport Country Lodge Hotel as well as facilitating Sleep Yoga workshops (something I look forward to getting back to as soon as public health recommendations make this seem sensible enough).
There is so much you can do to learn to help yourself
Part of the trouble with insomnia is that we can feel too tired to do the things we know could help but with practice, insomnia self help tools will become easy for you to implement and maintain.
Depending on how you want to work and how motivated you are, our sleep coaching can help you improve your sleep hygiene, you may want to implement some Sleep Yoga tools and sleep supporting meditation.
Mindfulness for sleep can be wonderful but needs to be paired with self-compassion.
Whether you’re struggling to drop off or waking up earlier than you want, if you want better sleep and to feel more energised, I’d love to hear from you.
Self-care coaching for insomnia will help you experiment with a range of tools for better sleep, putting into practice the ones that work best for you.
This will make it more likely that you’ll be able to sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.
Personally speaking, my own sleep is better than ever because I can implement mind/body and energy work tools to make it much easier to ease into sleep.
Self-care coaching for insomnia isn’t just about learning sleep hygiene and bedtime routines that will help you unwind before bed. It’s also about doing things throughout the day to make that later unwinding much easier.
All my work is collaborative so the choice about the direction we take and tools you learn is entirely up to you.
The fact that you’re reading this, looking for support and knowing you can improve things is a big step.
