Sleep Issues

Our in-house counsellors will work with you to understand the causes of your sleep problems and design an effective solution to help you manage your stress and sleep better.

Sleep issues mean being unable to get the right amount of sleep or changes in the sleep pattern of the individual due to various reasons. The variety of sleep issues includes insomnia, narcolepsy, sleep apnea, sleepwalking and night terrors, some of these being medical and neurological in nature. Sleep difficulties are a common problem today. The most frequently reported reason is stress and depression. Long work hours and innumerable responsibilities trouble the mind and body so much that sleep is kept at bay automatically.

How we can help?

Sleep is as essential to us as food, air and water, and suffering from sleep disorders can be very distressing and exhausting.
Our counsellors will help you understand and evaluate your environment along with teaching you sleep hygiene techniques. This knowledge will help them suggest certain lifestyle changes that can help in altering your situation and solving your sleep problems. Our counsellors will also perform and teach effective relaxation techniques that include muscle relaxation techniques combined with meditation that will help you relax your body and mind. These simple relaxation techniques along with breathing exercises can be performed by you during the day that will help bring your body and mind to ease, facilitating a healthy sleep cycle.

Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night.
