Colorado Springs Insomnia Counseling

Counseling and Help for Insomnia – Therapists and Coaches in Colorado Springs, CO

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 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.

★★★★★
Thrive has helped my husband so much. He has vestibular issues and it creates bad balance problems. It also has created left side weakness and he has had to use a cane to assist him with walking and stairs. Since being treated at Thrive, he only uses his,cane with stairs now and on occasion when he isn't feeling that well. His balance has improved abiut 65% also. His moods are much better now also since he can get around better by himself! Thank you Thrive for all you have done for my husband and our family!

Lindsay Schustedt has been seeing my 6 year old for a few months now. My daughter has been excited to go to counseling since she gets to see Lindsay. Lindsay has also been able to learn more about the issues that my daughter is experiencing. I believe that Lindsay is a very good counselor and I look forward to taking my daughter to see her in the future. I also have appreciated the communication that Lindsay has had with me regarding my daughter. Thank you Lindsay and ThriveWorks.

The best therapists across the Front Range!

★★★★★
I was recommended to Thriveworks by District 11 for my son who is diagnosed with Autism, PTSD, ADHD and RAD. He had a quite abusive life, prior to my adopting him. Directly from the onset of my scheduling his intake to his intake appointment, my spirit felt that this was going to be the correct place for him to be. Rachel, his therapist, is amazing! The entire staff is amazing. Their communication skills are dynamic and Talon is responding so positively; actually more so than he has with any other therapy group. The focus is on his success! Success in overcoming his obstacles and in life. As a therapist, myself, I highly recommend Thriveworks! Empathy, Compassion, Dynamic abilities in using therapeutic tools and in teaching clients how to use and apply them in life.

So thankful

★★★★★
So very thankful I chose Thriveworks and Kara Kays. Our time together was very helpful, and I made great progress. BDT was not like anything I’ve done before. Old way was to talk about the past and what made me who I am, new way is what is happening today, how can I be effective in my relationships today. Loved the learning tools, and I really clicked with Kara. Great experience

Making an appointment

★☆☆☆☆
I’ve never had a more difficult time just setting up an appointment. The lady who took my call seemed to be very inconvenienced with what I needed. There was hostility in her voice when I asked questions that she obviously deemed as common knowledge. When she finally found a counselor for my needs, and we moved to make an appointment, even though I said I would take time off work, she still seemed very rude with wanting to make an appointment. I read the profiles of many of the counselors, and they seem like wonderful people. But because of my initial contact with attempting to make an appointment, I will not be seeing anyone here.
