Sleep Clinic


Sleep problems are common throughout life and affect people acutely or chronically. Insomnia can happen due to a variety of reasons but the signs are clear. The inability to get to sleep {sleep onset} or the inability to stay asleep {sleep maintenance}. This can be coupled with early morning waking or the inability to get out of bed in the morning. Insomnia affects our daily life, making this a struggle which we use stimulants to overcome. Unfortunately sleeping tablets are often addictive and can induce a feeling of grogginess the following day.

Insomnia often starts with a bout of stress but can end up in a habit that the brain finds hard to stop. We often know what is happening but are helpless to stop it. If we suffer from insomnia for too long this affects our quality of life and our long term health also. Stress is a key player in insomnia and unless we can learn how to manage the stress in our lives then our sleep issues will continue. The good news is that most of the time insomnia is fully treatable with herbal remedies, diet and lifestyle changes. Herbal remedies offer an alternative to sleeping tablets and generally work effectively in 90% of cases. We just need patience, perseverance and determination. At the same time we can start identifying triggers and warning signs for ourselves.

Our Sleep Clinic specialises in helping you identify your triggers and warning signs as we help you become more competent at learning how to influence your sleep pattern and stress levels with foods, herbs and self-care. In your appointment we go over the things you are doing during the daytime that may be affecting your sleep. We start you off on a herbal programme designed to treat your particular type of insomnia. As we see you in follow up appointments, we determine what lifestyle changes, supplements and herbs are helping you the most, as well as identify underlying triggers and signs. We are able to help you look after yourself by getting into good sleep habits.

  • 1 hour and 15 minute initial appointment ~ We go over your symptoms and talk about your warning signs & triggers, plus alert you to what herbs and nutrients will help you to start the process of sleeping better.
  • 30 minute follow up ~ In your follow up we discuss results and determine what new habits are benefiting you the most as we decide what to continue with and make any changes if needed.
  • 15 minute follow up ~ Further changes to your habits may take longer to implement and if things are going well a maintenance plan can be made. For others, time and patience may require that you work on it for longer to get the desired results.

Further follow up appointments can be made in order to further track your progress. All appointments involve a referral to a medical practitioner if necessary.
