Sleeping soundly is a distant dream in itself. You worry about going to bed and lying awake again. You go to bed tired, yet wired.
You restlessly toss and turn - racing thoughts making it impossible to settle down. You're hyper-alert, aware of even the slightest sounds. You can’t get comfortable.
Recent events, guilt, worry, anger, disappointments, losses and stresses are constantly on your mind.
When you finally fall asleep you wake up repeatedly - fed up to the back teeth. You're aware of having worried even whilst you were asleep. Now you worry about waking up your partner as well.
In the morning, you wake up far too early. You feel groggy - as if you haven't slept at all, worried about how to cope with the following day. You're grumpy, unable to focus, miserable and exhausted. Everything feels too much... you notice only more problems, yet you can't focus to solve them.
You're reluctant to even go home at the end of the day, knowing that there will be just as many demands at home as there are at work. You fall asleep in front of the TV, with your partner complaining about your lack of attention...
I've condensed, in one 28-page Sleep Guide for the Tired and Wired, over 3 years' worth of knowledge and experience. I've helped people to sleep soundly throughout the night during stressful and/or distressing times in their lives, ensuring they wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed.
Right at the start of my counselling career, over 24 years ago, I realised how much a lack of sleep prevented my clients from dealing effectively with their difficult times. I realised the detrimental impact of their insomnia on their relationships. However, I was trained to deal with relationship problems - nothing else.
Then one day a normally very capable, fun-loving, resourceful woman came to see me for relationship problems. The cause? Her total inability to get a decent night's sleep after she'd gone through several traumatic life events.
She'd turned into a miserable ogre and was quite unlike her 'normal self'. Her doctor had prescribed antidepressants and sleep medication. She refused to take them. I realised that I just had to do more to help.
From then on, I started educating myself about sleep, sleep deprivation, the most likely causes and the most simple, effective and safe solutions. I attended workshops, read expert newsletters, spoke to doctors, looked at the research and started informing my clients. However, unfortunately results were inconsistent.
Then I stumbled on a new school of psychology with THE most exciting approach to counselling. FINALLY I learned what to do with sleepless souls. Three years later I qualified and had a 'bag full of tools’ to help people on the edge of a breakdown and/or during distressing times. Most importantly I knew how to help people SLEEP BETTER.
Over the last 3 years in particular I've seen results improve significantly. I've learned to ask the right questions to get to the root of the problems. Counselling helps, but the right information on what stops you sleeping well and what can make it a great deal worse is available right here, right now.
This book is designed solely to help you to sleep. If you're at the end of your tether right now and just don't know where to go for help, then you're in the right place. I can help you.
