At Psychotherapy Kingston, a CBT approach to sleep problems aims to improve sleep habits and behaviours.
The cognitive part of CBT teaches you to recognize and change beliefs that affect your ability to sleep. For instance, this may include learning how to control or eliminate negative thoughts and worries that keep you awake. The behavioural part of CBT helps you to develop good sleep habits and avoid behaviours that keep you from sleeping well.
