What is CBTI?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia is evidence-based and highly regarded by sleep professionals to be the ‘gold standard treatment for long-term resolution of insomnia. Sometimes it includes Sleep Restriction. Advantages of this sleep therapy include:
- Addresses the underlying causes to break the cycle of insomnia
- Non-pharmacological so no negative sleep medication side effects.
- A long-term solution to preventing the re-occurrence of bad sleep.
- A customized therapy tailored to the needs of the individual with different sleep related problems.
Why should I see a CBTi specialist?
Insomnia is a common sleep condition affecting all ages across all lifespans, from babies to old age. Presenting as difficulty falling or staying asleep or waking too early, it affects health and wellbeing. It can be an acute problem that resolves within three months or develop into chronic sleep issues that may accompany other sleep conditions like obstructive sleep apnoea.
Insomnia is linked to anxiety, depression, chronic pain, cardio-vascular disease, and a host of other conditions that can lead to chronic disease and premature death.
Clinicians trained in CBTi have confidence that their training is evidence-based and supported by decades of quality research and data. Research shows the combination of cognitive plus behavioural therapy results in greater improvement and resolution of acute and chronic insomnia and improved physical and mental health. All ages respond very well with CBTi therapy.

How will this work with my toddler that insists on me sleeping beside her every single night? I’m not getting quality sleep anymore.
My child is not able to concentrate at school and I see a big change in their behaviour. He is afraid to go to sleep and wants to sleep in my bed. This is affecting my relationship with his dad who thinks my son is naughty.
