All the help you need to conquer your sleep problems and start living life to the full
'A practical description of the leading treatment for insomnia and the causes of insomnia' Allison G. Harvey, PhD, University of California, Berkeley, USA
Poor sleep is one of the most common health problems and can leave you feeling exhausted, stressed and run-down. While prescribed medications and over-the-counter remedies rarely offer lasting benefits, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can help enormously and is the treatment of choice for insomnia.

Developing good pre-bedtime regimes
The most effective relaxation techniques
Establishing a new sleeping and waking pattern
Dealing with a racing mind
Using sleeping pills more effectively
Handling jet lag and sleepwalking
