Insomnia can be very distressing. We can all suffer from sleep problems from time to time and at worst it might make us feel a bit groggy during the day. But if you are having sleep problems on a regular basis, it can really affect you in many ways. Do you:
- Have problems getting to sleep?
- Have problems staying asleep?
- Have problems getting back to sleep if you wake in the night?
- Have problems getting up in the morning?
- Wake up feeling tired?
Side Effects of Insomnia
The side effects of insomnia vary from person to person but common ones include:
- Poor concentration
- Fatigue throughout the day
- Low mood
- Making more errors than usual
- Weakened immune system
What’s true for almost anyone suffering poor sleep is that they are much less effective in their daily life, and enjoy life much less too. As sleep is when our bodies restore, poor sleep quality can affect your health and immune system also. So, if all your efforts so far has not helped your sleep patterns, it is time for professional help.
What causes insomnia?
The causes of insomnia are many and varied. It can be blood sugar, hormone imbalance, work stress, financial worries, relationship problems and unresolved trauma, to name a few. What is true is that unless you deal with the cause, the problem is unlikely to go away. Sleeping tablets are one solution but they can be addictive, and they rarely give you restful sleep. You don’t feel restored in the morning and often feel groggy. So a more natural, personalised approach is much more conducive to resolving the problem long-term so you get the quality and quantity of sleep you need to live life well.

This is why my integrative approach is so helpful: I look at a range of factors which could impact your ability to enjoy a deep and restorative sleep and help you overcome them. My approach looks at stressors, emotional factors, biology, nutrition and lifestyle. And I use a range of approaches to find out what is affecting you: An online or face to face consultation, a Stress and Wellness Questionnaire and bio-energetic screening that helps us find out what else could be going on for you that is affecting your sleep. It is a very comprehensive approach so you get the very best advice. Because everyone is different. Because your sleep matters. And because there is no time like the present to get a personalised plan to get your sleep back on track.

“I have been suffering from insomnia for some while and nothing seemed to help. It was really affecting me. I decided to see Tricia Woolfrey who has a whole-person approach: she looks at everything which might affect sleep including stressors, diet, biology (including hormones), lifestyle and even emotions which might be troubling you: I had no idea that these could affect people too. Her approach is thorough and she gives lots of advice to help me. I came away with a report of her findings and recommendations, a personalised homeopathic remedy to help me and her Sleep-Well MP3 too. I am now sleeping much better.” Tessa Hood
