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 Woodbridge 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 Woodbridge 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?

For some, falling asleep and staying asleep is easy, but for those who struggle with insomnia, their experiences are very different. Trouble falling asleep or difficulty getting enough sleep is a disruptive but common experience. Unfortunately, disruption in nighttime sleeping patterns often leads to disruption in daily routines. The Internet is full of at-home insomnia remedies that work for some people but not for most, or they work for a while but not long-term.

While home remedies may or may not help people sleep better, cognitive behavior therapists have a proven track record for helping their clients with insomnia. Therapists who utilize cognitive behavior therapy equip their clients with practical help for sleep, and they identify anything that may be causing or exacerbating the insomnia.

If insomnia is keeping you up at night and making your days harder, therapy for insomnia in Woodbridge, VA could bring the relief you have been seeking.

Insomnia Disrupts Life

A sleep disorder that affects many, insomnia can be acute or chronic. Some people experience insomnia for a few weeks at a time during stressful life events. Others live with on-going sleep deprivation. Regardless of its duration, sleepless or sleep deprived nights make navigating the day harder.

  • Simple tasks may feel complex.
  • Focusing may seem impossible.
  • Irritability may be harming your relationships.
  • Extra weight may be taking its toll on your body.

Insomnia can affect people’s mental and physical health as well. Sleep deprivation and disturbances are linked with increased risk of…

  1. Type 2 diabetes
  2. High blood pressure
  3. Depression
  4. Accidents
  5. Hypertension
  6. The common cold and flu

Maybe you have experienced these difficulties. If so, you are not alone. Many people struggle against insomnia.

What Does Insomnia Look Like?

David can fall asleep easily, but he wakes for a few hours in the middle of the night—every night. Instead of continuous sleep, he sleeps for a few hours, wakes for a few hours, then sleeps for a few more hours.

Kari can’t fall asleep until it’s almost time to wake up again. She might get an hour or two of sleep before sunrise, but she spends most of the night exhausted but awake.

James falls asleep easily and seemingly stays asleep. But when his alarm sounds each morning, he feels more tired than when he got in bed the previous night. Far from being restorative, sleep drains James, leaving him exhausted.

Does any of this sound familiar? If you are experiencing similar sleep patterns or symptoms, help is available through insomnia therapy at Woodbridge, VA.

Woodbridge, VA Insomnia Therapy: What Can I Expect?

Our therapists take a multi-faceted approach to their insomnia counseling. They are trained in cognitive behavior therapy and are equipped help their clients with both short-term relief and long-term solutions. Many of our clients have seen a better, more restorative night’s sleep.

Interested in waking up rested and ready for the day? Insomnia therapy at Woodbridge, VA may include…

  1. Keeping a sleep log. Before applying random solutions, our counselors work with their clients to pinpoint their specific sleep problems. Insomnia takes many forms and can be caused by a variety of problems. Our counselors are not interested in treating generic insomnia, they are interested in treating your insomnia.
  2. Cultivating relaxation techniques. Being awake in the middle of the night can feel overwhelming and induce anxiety. Negative thoughts might bombard you and compound sleep problems. Our counselors are trained to help their clients regain control of their thoughts. Directing your mind toward positive, calming thoughts takes time, practice, and a professional’s help, but learning how to relax your mind and body can lead to healthier sleep habits.
  3. Restricting sleep. Sometimes sleep disturbances at night are caused by day-time napping or by being in bed while not asleep. Our counselors work with their clients to come up with a plan that restricts sleep to nighttime.
  4. Optimizing the sleep environment. Not all sleep disturbances are internal. Sometimes, people have difficulty sleeping because of the environment in their bedroom: light, noise, and temperature. Our counselors know what elements increase the likelihood of sleep and which inhibit sleep. They can guide their clients toward better sleeping environments.
  5. Addressing the insomnia’s foundational causes. Sometimes insomnia occurs on its own, but often insomnia accompanies another mental or physical health issue. If insomnia’s foundational cause isn’t addressed, even the best sleep techniques may fail. Our therapists help their clients learn coping mechanisms if their insomnia pops up during life’s big transitions. Or if their clients’ insomnia is a symptom of depression, our therapists ensure their clients receive the help they need. Whatever the foundational cause, our therapists work with their clients to ensure they receive the care they need.

As you can see, this approach is not easy or quick, but our therapists have seen results with their clients. Consistent, good sleep gives you the best chance at living a physically and mentally healthy life. It’s worth the effort.

I want to start off by saying that my two counselors I had were great, but the thrive works Business model is lacking a care for its clients. I had my heat go out and I missed my session because I was working for eight hours straight on it and was told that I shouldn’t have been working on my heat and made my appointment because it’s more important than my family. Will not recommend, and I had a horrible experience with Thrive works as a business model but again my two counselors were wonderful. I got nothing but respect for them.

I mentored Sharon in her master’s and doctoral studies where I found her to be thoughtful and discerning. She always generated a sincere sense of passion as her desire was not just to obtain degrees but to build the skills and knowledge base to support people within her community. Transparent in all her interactions with me and fellow students, she was unapologetically true to Biblical standards as the foundation of her interactions with others. I am confident that she will continue to be a thoughtful and wise counselor to all who seek her guidance and compassion.

Sharon is the epitome of integrity. She operates in humility and truth. She embodies what I call the three Cs: Caring, Considerate, and Compassionate. She sees you, hears you, and listens attentively and intuitively to your concerns. Her advice is sound and non-judgmental. Sharon's quiet, calm, and peaceful spirit puts you at ease, and makes you feel comfortable. I often seek her advice when life becomes difficult. I highly recommend Sharon for those that are broken, and in need of much healing and inner peace.
