Are you Struggling with Insomnia?
There is a large body of evidence from clinical research trials that show CBT Therapy is a highly effective method for sleeping disorders. The recommended treatment options available to someone suffering from sleep problems and insomnia are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or medication. It is recommended that CBT should be the first line of treatment.
What is a Sleep Disorder?
We all develop sleeping problems from time to time due to various life events or just an unexplained blip in sleep rhythms. However, for some people, acute episodes of insomnia can lead to chronic difficulties in sleeping, which lead to a diagnosis of sleep disorder.
Insomnia is difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Symptoms of insomnia include finding it hard to fall asleep, waking up several times during the night and feeling tired during the day.

What you need to know
Chronic insomnia causes sufferers to experience disrupted sleep for at least three nights a week. It can cause great anguish and is linked to mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Approximately 10-15 percent of UK adults suffer from chronic insomnia, and Onebright believes that adopting some key CBT interventions can help drastically reduce this figure.
