A very quick word about how I can help you ...
OUR BODIES ARE TALKING TO US ALL THE TIME!
"Every living creature is a true miracle of science - an incredibly complex set of interconnected systems that constantly work together to regulate the stability of the different internal functions that keep those systems on an even keel. If we're too hot, too cold, thirsty, hungry, agitated or unwell, one or another of our body systems will always let us know. Sleep disorder is very often a symptom of something else that's wrong. Successful healing comes directly from our ability to understand exactly what our bodies are saying, so we need to be in tune with them, to understand some of the other, less obvious ways in which they're trying to communicate with us. Insomnia is one of those direct communications.
Healing sleep deprivation greatly enhances our ability to understand what our bodies need." Maxine Cook
I offer individually tailored Sleep Programs for people who are suffering from long-term sleep disruption or sleep deprivation.
There are different forms of insomnia that affect people in different ways, at different times, and for different reasons. Treatment for sleep disorder needs to be specifically tailored to the individual. On the basis of comprehensive assessment, Sleep Programs are individually designed to meet each Client's unique, specific needs and are undertaken with full support in the comfort of the Client's home.
"I'm a Psychologist, Complementary Therapist and Sleep Coach. I've had a complicated health journey of my own that has spanned every decade of my life, but it was over 50 years before I finally identified and resolved the issues that underpinned my health problems.
Mainstream medicine failed consistently to link a lot of my symptoms so I was never properly diagnosed, just "managed" on drugs I was told I had to take for the rest of my life! But I didn't want to settle for just being "managed"! I wanted to be healthy again. - free from pain and discomfort, free from prescription drugs I didn't need to take, and sleeping properly again for the first time in years!
I sought help from the alternative sector, got my health back, and retrained in therapies that directly, naturally and gently address the issues that drive the state of people's health. As a Psychologist I have always understood the devastating impact of insomnia on mental health, but it wasn't until I started suffering from sleep deprivation myself, and realised I needed treatment for sleep disorder, that I understood first-hand the true devastating impact on health and wellbeing. Having retrained in sleep therapies, I now also understand the potentially life-limiting and life shortening phsyical and biological effects as well. I'm now committed to helping others who want to sleep better and reclaim their health, particularly those who feel that they're not being properly heard or getting the support they really need from mainstream medical practice.
