Sleep problems and Sleep therapy
The vast majority of people who seek medical help for insomnia and similar common sleep problems are prescribed sleeping tablets, even though these may cause a range of side-effects, like daytime fatigue, cognitive impairments, impaired motor speed and coordination, and increased risk for motor vehicle and other accidents.
Relax-the-Mind Sleep Therapy is a drug-free treatment for sleep problems. It integrates elements which have been scientifically researched and proven effective for overcoming sleep problems; psychotherapy, sleep hygiene, stimulus control, behavioural interventions, cognitive therapy, physical and mental relaxation techniques, and non-trance elements from hypnotherapy.
Relax-the-Mind Sleep Therapy has proven to be a successful treatment for people anywhere on the sleep problems continuum; from people who only intermittently struggle to get good sleep at night, to people who have been dependent on sleeping tablets for years. It is a very effective program, that is increasingly recommended as the choice treatment both as a first-line and long-term solution for overcoming insomnia and other sleep problems.

For people who live far away from the clinic, or who for other reasons prefer not to have their sessions in the clinic, there is the option of using the recorded online treatment for sleep problems; the “Relax the Mind to Sleep” online course.
The online course introduces exactly the same four stages of sleep therapy as the clinical program. As in the clinical program, each stage is practised for about a week, before you move on to the next stage. This way you are sure to experientially learn each practice thoroughly, and avoid overloading yourself with information – which would add more stress, rather than remove stress and relax the mind.
