Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBTi)
Scientifically shown to be the best method for improving sleep
Trouble staying or falling asleep is one of the most common difficulties people face. Your sleep might be disturbed temporarily by an unexpected or particularly stressful event. Sometimes, your sleep goes right back to normal once the situation has passed. Other times, however, trouble sleeping continues even after the stressful situation is long gone, and turns into insomnia. Lack of sleep contributes to feelings of fatigue, anxiety, depression, and can exacerbate chronic pain and other medical conditions. Research shows that addressing sleep issues is a necessary step in improving quality of life in general, as well as addressing symptoms of anxiety, depression, pain, etc.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBTi), as practiced by the therapists in our Boston, MA office, is a highly effective scientifically supported treatment that helps people fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer, and wake up more refreshed. CBTi is a great alternative to sleep medication and can help you reduce or eliminate your reliance on sleep medication. CBTi is a goal-oriented solution-focused treatment that provides you with skills you can carry with you for the future and return to if insomnia recurs.
