Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia

2 April 2024by Oqea Cares

When was the last time you truly experienced deep restful sleep?

It is well-documented that sleep benefits the body and mind in various physical, physiological and mental health and wellbeing ways, such as:

  • Improving mood and energy levels.
  • Promoting cardiac health and regulating blood sugar.
  • Enhancing mental function, memory, learning, and problem-solving.
  • Restoring the immune system and reducing stress.
  • Supporting athletic performance and maintaining a healthy weight.

So how do you sleep well? What are the tips to achieve the zzz’s?

Oqea posed the question to our Oqea Cares psychologists inviting them to reflect on their nightly routines and recommendations they provide their patients.

The fourth in the series of videos, Eimear Quigley (Clinical Psychologist / Clinical Services Manager) shares her CBT -I wealth of experience and knowledge in a practical and informative manner.
