Can Online Therapy Be The Cure For Insomnia?
When it comes to insomnia should you be getting self-help? Some people believe that online therapy is the new age way of combatting insomnia. That online therapy all starts with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. So when it comes to treating modern insomnia, Is online therapy really the cure for you?
According to the Royal College of Psychiatrists:
“CBT can help you to change how you think ('Cognitive') and what you do ('Behavior'). These changes can help you to feel better. Unlike some of the other talking treatments, it focuses on the 'here and now'; problems and difficulties. Instead of focusing on the causes of your distress or symptoms in the past, it looks for ways to improve your state of mind now.”
CBT can also help you to make sense of overwhelming problems by breaking them down into smaller parts. This makes it easier to see how they are connected and how they affect you. These parts are:
● A Situation - a problem, event or difficult situation.
From this can follow:
● Physical feelings
CBT therapy can now be found online and in several different apps. Using CBT and modern technology you can build your own sleep improvement program. You can actually test your sleep via these apps using the technology of CBT. Apps like Sleepio actually provide statistics and evidence, as well as health professionals you can connect to in order to make the most of your new insomnia therapy. You’ll learn everything from how to fall asleep early to staying asleep throughout the night until you wake up.
