You CAN get your life back!
Are you sick and tired of tossing and turning, sleepless nights and tired days? If chronic insomnia is affecting your life, I have great news for you: Research shows that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia [CBT-I] is not only effective, but is the best treatment for chronic insomnia. Even if you’ve been struggling with insomnia for years, even if you’re dependent on sleeping pills, CBT-I is designed to help your brain re-learn how to have deeper, more restorative sleep. If you feel like your life is being waisted by insomnia, CBT-I may be able to help.
Sleep medications work by drugging you so you can pass out. Unfortunately, they can change the structure and quality of sleep and may leave you feeling unrefreshed or groggy the next day. On the other hand, CBT-I treats the causes of insomnia, not just the symptoms. Whereas sleep medications tend to cause dependence over time, and insomnia often comes back with a vengeance when sleep meds are stopped, the benefits of CBT-I are long lasting, even after you’ve finished treatment. If you ever find insomnia creeping back, you can go back to what you learned with CBT-I and nip it in the bud. Some people might benefit from a “booster” session or two down the road.
Available by phone and online throughout British Columbia.
Knowledge is power. You might be surprised to learn how short term insomnia can become long term. In as little as 5 sessions, you can have the tools you need to help overcome insomnia. Most people start having deeper, more restorative sleep (for a significant part of the night) in a surprisingly short time, usually within only 2 weeks, and often just a few days. And sleep typically continues to improve for weeks to come.
If you’ve been living with chronic insomnia for a long time, I don’t blame you for being sceptical. But you don’t need to believe me. Click here to see what the research says.
I am more than excited to be offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia. I’d love to work with you over the next few weeks to support you through the steps needed for deeper, more restorative sleep. Say goodbye to tossing and turning all night.

Free 15 minute phone consultation. This is an opportunity for us to talk a bit about your insomnia, how CBT-I works and what you can expect.
Please note that while CBT-I is surprisingly effective for most people, there are a few conditions or circumstances where it is not suitable – and some where we might need to modify the CBT-I approach. To help reduce the chance of you investing time and money into beginning this therapy – if it might turn out to not be the best fit for you right now – we can discuss some of those possibilities during this free 15-minute consultation.
