Most of us know how important sleep is, and how terrible it can feel when we aren’t sleeping well. When I recently had a loved one suffer from insomnia, I witnessed firsthand the detrimental impact that insomnia can have on someone. What made it even more difficult was trying to find a service that could help this person. They were prescribed multiple different sleeping pills, which had no long term benefits for their insomnia (some were actually more harmful to their functioning than the insomnia itself).

Through our research we learnt that there was an evidence-based treatment for insomnia called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-i).

It had amazing evidence for its effectiveness, however, we hit another wall when we couldn’t find anyone in our local area trained to implement the therapy. It was through this journey that I became very passionate about the treatment of insomnia. As such, the psychologists at Mind Potential Psychology became trained in CBT-i, so we could assist the people on the Sunshine Coast with their insomnia.
