Starting Insomnia therapy

What is insomnia therapy?

Insomnia therapy is a tailored form of treatment that addresses chronic sleep disturbances, which can include problems with falling asleep, staying asleep, or experiencing restorative sleep. The goal of Insomnia therapy is to enhance sleep quality, establish healthy sleep routines, and, in turn, improve an individual's overall well-being by mitigating and reducing the adverse effects of persistent sleep deprivation.

How does insomnia therapy work?

Insomnia therapy combines therapeutic approaches, with a central focus on cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) to modify sleep-disrupting thoughts and behaviors, integrating techniques like stimulus control, sleep restriction, and relaxation training. Thriveworks Colorado Springs therapists will also emphasize sleep hygiene education and may include mindfulness and relaxation exercises to improve sleep quality, equipping individuals with effective strategies to enhance their sleep and overall well-being.

Symptoms of insomnia

Common symptoms of insomnia include:

  • Having a hard time falling asleep
  • Waking up in the middle of the night
  • Waking up earlier than desired
  • Bedtime anxiety about sleeplessness
  • Grogginess during the day due to lack of sleep

Should I go to therapy for insomnia?

Symptoms of insomnia often look different for everyone; however, there are some warning signs that can signal the need for insomnia therapy. These include feeling anxious about bedtime, bedtimes getting later and later, energy peaking at night rather than during the day, and drastic caffeine consumption in order to stay awake.

What is the best therapy for insomnia?

Cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is one of the most effective forms of therapy for treating insomnia, working to modify sleep-disrupting thoughts and behaviors through strategies like sleep hygiene and sleep restriction.

Is insomnia therapy conducted in person or online?

Insomnia therapy at Thriveworks Colorado Springs is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long should you go to therapy for insomnia?

The duration of insomnia therapy can vary based on the individual's needs and progress in treatment. Typically, it involves a short series of sessions over a few weeks to a couple of months, with the number and length of sessions decided in consultation with the therapist. Some experience better sleep within this time, while others choose longer therapy to address complex sleep issues or maintain good sleep habits.

How long does CBT take to work for insomnia?

Many people start to see improvements in their sleep patterns after about two to three weeks of CBT-I. However, the duration and effectiveness will differ for everyone, so don't worry if it takes a bit longer to have a strong effect.

Need more help deciding?

Your bedside alarm clock reads 12:03. You sigh and roll over, fluffing the pillow and rearranging the blankets. Go to sleep, you think. 15 minutes later, you give up and make your lucky good night tea, and then give the allusive sleep one final shot. 12:47 and you get up with a sigh, accepting that you are going to have to tackle the day with only 2 hours and 3 minutes of sleep. What if we at Colorado Springs Thriveworks told you that you don’t have to accept the sapping effects of insomnia? Our insomnia therapy could be the relief that even the age-old tea method couldn’t provide!

What it is:

Insomnia can be different for everyone. Some fall asleep quickly, but also wake up easily. Others may wake multiple times in the night; never reaching the deep sleep needed to recover and prepare for the next day. Or maybe you just can’t fall asleep in the first place, and end up maddingly watching the clock as your peaceful time for dreams ticks away. Others still may sleep for 8 or more hours, but wake up feeling more exhausted than when they first laid their head down.

Causes of Insomnia can be greatly varied. A few include:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress and Worry
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Lifestyle choices like diet and exercise
  • Aging issues such as menopause

Insomnia can also occur on its own with no apparent cause, but the sleep therapists at Colorado Springs, CO can address it- no matter the root of it!

Insomnia Effects

Are you not sure if you have insomnia and doubting if you should get professional help? It is helpful to know the effects of insomnia, although Colorado Springs Thriveworks is always ready to give you a hand, even if you don’t know what exactly is wrong. There is no ‘small’ problem, if it is negatively affecting your life in any way. It is worth seeing one of our qualified and friendly therapists!

Common effects of insomnia include:

  • Inability to focus.
  • Increased drowsiness.
  • Decreased sex drive.
  • Irritability.
  • Traffic accidents and close calls.
  • Low job performance.

It can be very overwhelming dealing with life while lacking sleep, so let us push you in the right direction towards a healthy, happy sleep schedule. You are not alone in this fight!

So How Can We Help?

Great, now you know all about how big of a pain it is to have insomnia, which you probably already knew about… So how can Thriveworks Counseling and Therapy help guide you towards a balanced, restful sleep cycle?

One method our therapists may use is changing the daily habits and thoughts that may be contributing to insomnia. The brain is a very powerful tool, and often times it can be working against people! For example, long sufferers of insomnia may begin to believe they are simply “bad sleepers.” This reinforces insomnia behavior by training the subconscious to believe these negative false truths. Therapists at Thriveworks Colorado Springs, CO can recognize and reverse the negative belief patterns through changing daily habits and thoughts- called cognitive behavior therapy- and replace them with beneficial thought patterns and beliefs.

Another method used is addressing the underlying cause of insomnia. For example, anxiety is often associated with insomnia, so learning to cope with that can make sleeping much easier. Our therapists are experts at working on a case-by-case basis and specialize their treatments to the causes and nuances of insomnia unique to the individual.

Although it doesn’t feel like it sometimes- especially running on 2 hours of sleep- beating your insomnia could be as “simple” as changing parts of your lifestyle. (Although, let’s be honest, changing your lifestyle is never simple. And that is exactly why the Colorado Springs Thriveworks’ therapists are here to help and guide you through it!) We can aid you in optimizing your sleeping conditions by regulating bedtimes and waking times, honing in on proper exercise and diets (including how and when you work out and eat) and giving you relaxation guides to help you calm your mind and body before bed.

Insomnia can suck the joy out of life, but with the professional help of Colorado Springs Thriveworks, you can get your life back on track! A few weeks from now the digital alarm clock numbers that used to mock you will be a joyful reminder of how much restful sleep you got. Contact us today for a chance to dream peacefully again and not dread going to bed. We have therapists who are available to fit busy schedules, and appointments are available soon! 719-266-3919

Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.
