Services for adults with insomnia
People of all ages have been helped at Trouble Sleeping, ranging from infants through to retirees. To ensure that Trouble Sleeping is the right option for you, we offer a free, initial and no obligation telephone consultation with Dr Browning who can answer any questions you have. Contact us to arrange an initial telephone chat via the contact page or call on 0118 9010544.
Following that, you can choose from one of three consultation packages:
- Telephone or Skype 50 minute discussion for basic sleep issues
- Face to face consultation with standard pre-consultation assessment and email follow up support.
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (or CBT-I) is the gold standard for treatment of insomnia. It involves 5-8 sessions to resolve insomnia in a structured way.
See Prices page for more details.
“Many things: such as loving, going to sleep, or behaving unaffectedly – are done worst when we try hardest to do them.”
For the standard package, a detailed history of your sleep will be taken and you will be asked to complete a daily sleep diary. This information will then be reviewed and analysed by Dr Browning prior to the 1-to-1 consultation.
During the 50 minute 1-to-1 consultation, Dr Browning will walk you through a series of recommendations that include behavioural and cognitive changes to help you to improve your sleep.
In the majority of cases, clients see significant improvement to their sleep with only one session, but in more complex cases follow-up sessions may be required. In addition, if following consultation we believe that your sleeping difficulty appears to have a medical cause then we will write a referral letter to your GP for further medical treatment.
The sleep consultancy advice offered by Dr Lindsay Browning is based on her expertise in sleep and is based on psychological principles. Medication will not be offered, and you are advised to discuss coming off any sleeping medication with your GP.
