Sleep disorders can affect your ability to sleep well or cause you to feel tired throughout the day. Most common sleep disorders include sleep apnea (sleep apnea), restless legs syndrome (RLS), insomnia, and sleep narcolepsy. These disorders can be triggered by jet lag or shift work.

  • You have trouble sleeping.
  • Even though you slept at least seven hours last night, you are still tired.
  • You are unable to do daily activities due to a diminished or impaired ability.

Many people experience sleep problems from stress, busy schedules, and other external influences. If these problems become more frequent and disrupt your daily life, it could be a sign of a sleeping disorder.

People may experience difficulty falling asleep or feeling tired throughout the day, depending on their sleep disorder. A lack of sleep can affect energy, mood, concentration, overall health, and overall well-being.

Sometimes, sleep disorders may be a sign of another mental or medical condition. If the root cause is addressed, these sleeping disorders may resolve.

If you suspect that you may have a sleep problem, it is important to get a diagnosis immediately and receive Sleep Disorders Counselling. If left untreated, it can have serious health consequences. Myfitbrain has the most experienced and trained psychologists and therapists. We have been helping people break their bad sleeping habits. Give us a call today and book your session.

Types of Sleeping Disorder

Types of Sleeping Disorder

Insomnia

Insomnia is a condition where you are unable to fall asleep or stay asleep. It can be caused by jet lag, stress, anxiety, hormones, or digestive problems. Insomnia may be a problem for your overall health, quality of life, and well-being.

  • Depression
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Irritation
  • Weight Gain
  • School performance or work that is impaired

We will use cognitive behavior therapy, sleep restriction, stimulus control, and relaxation techniques, medication to treat insomnia.

Restless leg syndrome

Restless leg syndrome (RLS), is an overwhelming desire to move your legs while you’re resting. Sometimes, this urge can be accompanied by a tingling sensation in the legs. These symptoms can be experienced at any time of the day but are more common at night.

RLS can be associated with certain conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and Parkinson's disease. However, the cause of this condition is not always clear. We use behavioral therapy to treat RLS

Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea, a common but serious sleep disorder, is very common. You will stop breathing if your airway becomes blocked repeatedly. You might make loud snoring or make choking sounds when this happens. Your brain and body are starved of oxygen, which causes you to wake up. This may happen only once or twice per night. In severe cases, this can occur hundreds of times per night. Therapy for Sleep Disorders helps solve this problem.

Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is characterized by "sleep attacks", which occur while you are awake. You will feel tired suddenly and then fall asleep completely unavoidably. People with narcolepsy are unable to regulate their sleep-wake cycle.

Therapy for Sleep Disorders

Therapy for Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders counseling is an effective way to improve your sleep quality. Our therapies are not based on sleeping pills and help you to understand your sleep patterns and work with the objective of improving them.

SRT (Sleep restriction Therapy)

This method reduces how much time you spend in bed, by eliminating naps and forcing your body to get up earlier than usual. This can help with insomnia. This method of sleep deprivation not only makes you more tired the next night but also creates a stronger connection between bed and sleeping than a bed and being awake.

Control therapy

It helps you identify and correct and bad sleep habits. This involves training you to use your bedroom only for sleep and not for working or watching TV. It also means that you will need to keep a consistent sleep-wake time, even on weekends.

Improve your sleep environment and hygiene

Your sleeping environment should be quiet, peaceful, cool, and comfortable. Our therapy for sleep disorders includes blackout shades or earplugs to block out any noise. You can improve your sleep hygiene by exercising, avoiding caffeine, and avoiding caffeine at night.

Relaxation training

Regular practice of relaxation techniques like mindfulness meditation, progressive muscles relaxation, and breathing exercises can help to relax at night. They will relieve tension and anxiety and prepare you for sleep.

Hypnosis

CBT can sometimes be used to treat sleep disorders. The therapist will use different therapeutic techniques to assist you in changing negative thoughts or bad habits while you are deeply relaxed. This is how you can promote restful sleep and help you overcome any lingering stress.

Personal therapy

The therapy focuses on understanding your problem, exploring your emotional needs, and finding solutions. This therapy will provide personalized assistance to help you improve your sleeping patterns.

Control

Many people do things that are stimulating while they sleep, such as watching TV or movies. This technique will help you relax before you go to sleep and helps you control distractions.

Other therapies

These therapies include a range of treatments that can be used to improve your lifestyle and mental health. You can try guided imagery, yoga, and hypnosis.

Cognitive behavior therapy

CBT therapy challenges you to think differently and makes it possible for you to face your own problems. If you cannot sleep, the thoughts of something bad will make it worse. This therapy will challenge your thinking and provide insight into the situation.

Mindfulness Meditation

This technique allows you to focus on your breath and understand the present moment. This technique can help you improve your focus and lead a healthier lifestyle.
