Adolescent sleep problems are widespread, with 1 in 2 adolescents barely getting enough sleep to function well during the day.
Is your adolescent:
- Having difficulty falling asleep?
- Hard to wake in the morning?
- Unable to concentration at school or having lots of sick days?
- Sleeping in a long time on weekends?
- Using lots of technology before bed?
- Worrying in bed?
Many adolescents can develop a delayed body clock, taking a long time to fall asleep, have trouble waking in the morning, and sleep in a long time on weekends. Others can develop insomnia like problems, and have anxiety before sleep.
We offer cognitive behavioural therapy for adolescent sleep problems, which can have successful outcomes in a short amount of time. We also offer Bright Light Therapy, which is a proven treatment for body clock issues.
We are also very experienced in helping adolescents with issues/such as stress and anxiety, school time management and motivation issues, depression and anger, which often go hand in hand with sleeping problems.
