5 Easy Steps To Sleep Better

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.

If you are experiencing sleep difficulties, please reach out and seek support...it is available, and it doesn't have to come in the form of sleeping pills. If you have any questions at all please send me an email or message. I will gladly help anyone experiencing sleep difficulties with trying to access support. In the meantime, watch the video below where I go over 5 steps you can implement today to help you start forming healthy sleep habits.

Yours in health

  1. Hi Danielle, I’m Barbara Kelly, one of your former patients, and am always interested in any of the videos you sent out. My husband has heart failure and hasn’t enjoyed good health for some years now, and recently was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. He’d had symptoms for some years but it wasn’t until recently that our Dr. saw him shaking very badly and diagnosed him. It has been rather difficult for me as I have depression amongst other minor illnesses, to get my head around it and cope with his condition which is now quite advanced. I initially had insomnia and tried to remember all the things I should do to help myself. It has been great today to watch your video reminding me of the five points to gain better sleep habits. I shall endeavour to put them into practice. Thank you so much.
    I was happy to hear that you have another addition to your family Congratulations and best wishes to you all. Barbara Kelly.
