I provide Sleep Consultations for adults (as well as children) who want to improve their sleep or suffer from sleep problems, such as:
- Insomnia (including trouble falling or staying asleep and poor quality sleep)
- Circadian issues, e.g., delayed sleep-wake phase disorder (DSPD)
- Addiction to benzodiazepines and other drugs
- Jet lag or adjusting to a night job
- Nightmares or night terrors
- Sleep paralysis
Relying first and foremost on the latest evidence-based sleep science, I help my clients uncover why they are suffering from insomnia or other sleep problems and what they should do in order to sleep well.
Cognitive behavioral methods have been proven in scientific studies to help and to provide a more long-lasting relief than drugs. I provide my clients with knowledge regarding evidence-based techniques used by sleep specialists and cognitive-behavioral therapists, such as sleep restriction, stimulus control, improving sleep hygiene, mindfulness and meditation, biofeedback and sleep tracking, progressive deep muscle relaxation, lucid dreaming therapy for insomnia or nightmares, and cognitive techniques such as paradoxical intention.
All of these techniques are very easy to carry out, and have proven to be effective.
But this process may take time, so using sleep aids does make sense in the short term. No need for pharmaceuticals though because Mother Nature has taken care of that already!
You may be surprised to learn that there are natural remedies which are far superior to some of the strongest sleeping pills in the market today and without the terrible side effects.
As a clinical psycho-herbalist, I provide my clients with safe and effective herbs, which address the root cause of their sleeping issues as well as help symptomatically by inducing sleepiness.
I work with a wide spectrum of natural remedies to address any co-morbid/secondary conditions, such as stress including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), menopausal changes, autism, depression, anxiety, etc.
I also provide support with drug withdrawal, especially withdrawal from benzodiazepines and other sleeping pills.
In many cases, sleeplessness is caused by an underlying medical condition. The action plan I’ll prepare for you will also address that with lifestyle suggestions which in some cases (e.g., diabetes, heart disease) may even reverse the disease.
Many of my clients experience weight loss as a result of following the recommendations. Lifestyle modification is one of the most important components of dealing with sleep problems, and if you’re overweight, we will need to bring you down to a normal weight as part of the program.
In short, I will provide you with a personalized, comprehensive, and holistic action plan based on your own particular conditions and circumstances as well as cutting-edge scientific research in sleep medicine to rid you of your sleep problems, once and for all. Naturally.
Feedback from My Clients
I am very pleased with your service. I have been doing most of the recommendations. It is very hard to find a sleep expert these days. The help and advice I received from regular sleep clinics and Western-trained doctors has been either not helpful or destructive. I will recommend your service to my friends who were also harmed by psychiatric drugs.
What cost can you place on a good night’s sleep?
I offer sleep consultations and coaching to promote better sleep, including:
- Data collection via questionnaires and/or sleep tracking to understand your personal sleep issues.
- A personalized holistic action plan tailored specifically for you with evidence-based interventions such as exercise, nutrition, sleep hygiene, herbal medicine, relaxation techniques, health problems/drugs, and cognitive and behavioral therapies.
- Support throughout the implementation of the action plan, monitoring how the interventions are affecting your sleep, answering any questions you may have, and making changes to the plan, if needed.
If you follow the plan, I can assure you that your sleep will improve.
The service costs $650 and includes an intake, a personalized action plan, as well as 2-weeks of personal coaching.
A FREE Sleep Consultation is also available, where you may ask me any questions regarding sleep and dreams. Feel welcome to get in touch with me; I’d love to hear about your Sleep & Dreams. . .
