What is CBT-I?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a proven and highly effective approach to addressing insomnia. It focuses on identifying and changing the thoughts and behaviors that contribute to sleep difficulties, promoting healthier sleep patterns and habits.

Why Choose CBT-I?

Insomnia can have a significant impact on your daily life, affecting your mood, energy levels, and overall functioning. Unlike medication-based approaches, CBT-I is a non-pharmaceutical, evidence-based treatment that aims to address the root causes of insomnia, providing a sustainable and long-term solution.

Benefits of CBT-I:

  • Long-lasting Results: CBT-I is known for its enduring effects, providing a sustainable solution to insomnia. Nearly 75% of patients who engage in CBT-I have reported improvement in their sleep.
  • Drug-Free: Unlike medication, CBT-I focuses on changing behaviors and thoughts without relying on pharmaceuticals. In most cases, sleep pills do not treat the root cause of insomnia and do not help achieve the deep sleep that we need. Additionally, 85-90% of participants have reduced or elminated their reliance on sleeping pills.
  • Improved Daytime Functioning: Better sleep can lead to increased energy, improved mood, and enhanced overall well-being.
