Insomnia Therapy in Cumming, GA—Counselors and Therapists

Ben can fall asleep, but he can’t stay asleep. Sandra doesn’t usually fall asleep until three or four in the morning. Gary seems to sleep well through the night, but he wakes up every morning exhausted.

Anyone who has experienced regular sleep disturbances knows that losing hours of precious rest is hard. Our bodies and minds need sleep to recover and heal. But just like Ben, Sandra, and Gary, many people do not receive the sleep they want and need. They try at-home remedies: using a particular lamp or drinking a special tea. These may help for a night or two, but then sleep is disrupted again. Is there lasting help for people who suffer from insomnia?

Cognitive behavioral therapy has helped many people who suffer with insomnia. Insomnia therapists may optimize the conditions necessary for sleep by equipping their clients with practical guidance on healthy sleep habits and by discovering insomnia’s root cause.

The therapists at Thriveworks Cumming are experienced and ready to help. They want their clients to overcome the challenges that come with insomnia and regain a restful night’s sleep. If you are ready to work with one of our specialists, give us a call. We’re able and happy to help.

The Causes of Insomnia

At some point throughout their lives, many people will suffer from insomnia and for various reasons. The root cause of sleep disturbances vary from person to person and even situation to situation within a person’s life:

  • Insomnia may occur alongside other health problems and changes. Depression, anxiety, menopause, and hyperthyroidism are a few examples of health problems that can trigger sleep disturbances.
  • Insomnia may also result from lifestyle choices. Diet and exercise may cause or exacerbate sleep disturbances.
  • Major life changes may increase stress which may leave people vulnerable to insomnia.
  • Insomnia sometimes arises without warning, apparent cause, or accompanying health issue.

The Effects of Insomnia

People who have difficulty getting enough sleep face many difficulties in their daily life. The effects of insomnia may include…

  1. Difficulty focusing
  2. Irritability
  3. Weight gain
  4. Low sex drive
  5. Drowsiness
  6. Traffic accidents and close calls.
  7. Memory loss

Help is available for people suffering with the effects of insomnia. Insomnia counselors at Thriveworks Cumming have helped their clients manage insomnia’s disruptions and regain restful sleep.

Counseling for Insomnia in Cumming, GA

Cultivating healthier sleep patterns at night usually involves changing daily habits and thoughts. Insomnia counselors at Thriveworks Cumming utilize cognitive behavioral therapy. Our counselors guide their clients through specific changes in their daily routines that may improve their ability to sleep well at night.

What does insomnia counseling involve? Each client needs specific treatment, but our counselors have found that many clients need help correcting negative thought patterns or treating an anxiety disorder.

  • Negative thought patterns may inhibit sleep. For example, after a few difficult nights, some people may begin to think they are “bad sleepers.” That negative thought can then increase the insomnia. Our professionals can help their clients identify any negative thought patterns that make sleeping harder.
  • Anxiety and insomnia are often linked. An unaddressed anxiety disorder may even be the underlying causes of insomnia. If an anxiety disorder is fueling sleep disruption, then that anxiety disorder needs treatment. As our therapists work with individual clients, they seek to discover if a deeper mental or physical health problem may accompany the insomnia.

Regardless of insomnia’s cause, all clients want the same thing: a good night’s sleep. Our therapists can also help their clients customize a sleep plan—practical steps toward healthier sleeping habits. Every sleep plan is personal, but sleep plans often include:

  • Setting a consistent time to wake up and go to bed each day.
  • Curbing caffeine or alcohol intake.
  • Maintaining a sleep environment that is conducive for rest.
  • Practicing relaxation techniques.

Family Saver

★★★★★
Every family goes through seasons were they may need help in navigating challenging emotional or stressful situations. Depending on the circumstances, thinking you can handle it on your own may prove to be too much and not the right approach. Our family experienced one of these seasons and the team at Thrivewoks offered on point guidance and perspective that our family was not able to see from the middle of the storm. Teenage years present many emotional and developmental changes that can often require outside the family support. Dr. Tim Giannoni and Counselor Tony Reynolds provide prompt, compassionate and effective care for our teenager and whole family. The storm is clearing largely due to techniques and consistent meetings that allow our teenager to have his place to go to talk and work through the many emotional peaks and valleys that come with these years of life. We cannot thank our team at Thriveworks enough for caring for our son and family!!!

Although most days are fine, others can be quite challenging, and it's comforting to know that Dr. Giannoni is there to help and offer support.

Thank you for your continued support.

Prospective and Compassion.

★★★★★
I cannot express how much Dr. Wilson helped me when I was at a very low point in my life. Her compassion and perspective brought insight that helped me through that tough period in my life. Her education and training enabled her to catch important warning signs that a lesser trained therapist might have missed. Today I'm in a much better place largely due to her counseling on how to deal with life issues.
