If you have been following this blog for any period of time at all you will realize that I am passionate about self help.
I hate the unnecessary damage and suffering that happens when people don’t know how best to take care of themselves, and I love helping people get the skills they need.
It’s always exciting for me to meet someone new coming into my office for help, and there is one time in particular when I just rub my hands in delight.
When people tell me they have problems sleeping.
Sleeping seems such an easy thing. Most people seem to do it easily. We’ve all done it our entire lives. Indeed, we can’t not do it.
So can it possibly cause so many problems?
In my years of counseling people it seems that most poor sleep is either a side effect of some other problem that needs addressing, or it is a left-over of an episode of bad sleep that just never settled back to normal.
In fact often when I point out to people that there is another problem that needs addressing, and then simply get them a good night’s sleep, they follow on and solve the issues they need to for themselves.
It’s quick one session therapy and effective too.
So how do I get people to get their sleep back so quickly?
More often than not people have already been recommended something for their sleep, such as a prescription medicine, or as a pharmacy product, or as a herbal tea, or natural remedy, or the like. You can even use a relaxation CD if that’s what makes you sleepy, it makes no difference.
This is the one time in my counseling that I actively suggest medication. Sleeping medication has a bad reputation, mostly for getting people addicted, and when I show people how to avoid this problem then the medication is a very useful way of applying a bandaid that can help them get on with the rest of their life.
Whichever way you get to sleep you need to make sure you get the sleep you need, but that you also get back to an unassisted sleep routine as soon as possible.
It doesn’t even matter if you are already on sleeping pills and feeling like you can’t get off them. The process is the same, and I have an online ‘consultation’ that takes you through all the steps you need to finally and regularly have a good night’s sleep here:
