Insomnia refers to difficulties with falling and staying asleep, as well as to sleep that is not experienced as restorative or restful. Affecting between 9% and 12% of the population, chronic insomnia can be a mentally and physically debilitating condition that impacts a person’s social, occupational and family life. Insomnia is also a significant risk factor in the development of anxiety and depression. Though medication is often seen as the primary treatment for insomnia, for many it is only a temporary solution and for others, it can lead to dependency on sleeping pills, which only compounds the problem. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is a proven and efficient means for managing chronic insomnia without the use of sleeping medication. CBT-I works through the scientifically proven principles of stimulus control, conditioned arousal, and sleep drive, and it effectively “re-sets” one’s sleep system, such that falling asleep, staying asleep, and feeling rested all day becomes possible.
