What is happening this month at Sleep Unlimited? – June 2022
This month there was the amazing news that the NHS are moving away from sleeping tablets as the first port of call to treat sleep problems. Instead they are recognising the efficacy of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBTi) to treat sleep problems. We have nearly 20 years of experience teaching the importance of treating sleep problems through CBTi. That’s why it is great to hear the NHS are jumping onboard too. The techniques we use are all evidence based and recommended by the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE).
We offer iSleep Assessments to anyone who is struggling with their sleep. Our iSleep Assessments are all conducted and processed by one of our Clinical Psychologists, who are experts in sleep problems. The head of our iSleep department is the wonderful Dr Zoe Gotts. Dr Gotts specialises in supporting adults with long-term physical health conditions and is involved in developing and evaluating non-pharmacological interventions to improve people’s sleep and overall quality of life.
During the iSleep assessment our assessment form is completed and is analysed by one Sleep Doctors, who write your personalised iSleep Report. The iSleep Report provides you with evidence-based advice to improve your sleep. The report also provides the Sleep Doctor with background information about your sleep problem. This enables them to dive straight into the important discussions in your follow up consultations.
Who can complete an iSleep Assessment?
Our iSleep assessments are available to everyone, regardless of their sleep problems, our team can tackle it all!
We are accessible for those with:
- mental health problems
- epilepsy/seizure activity
- sleep disorders including sleep apnoea and excessive daytime sleepiness
Our team of sleep experts consists of Clinical Psychologists, who specialise in complex conditions. They all have years of knowledge about every sleep problem you can imagine! Our iSleep assessments are available to both adults and children. We can also provide support for new parents and their sleeping routines with a new addition to the family!
No internet – no problem!
The iSleep assessment can also be completed as a paper assessment sent and returned through the post, should you have any issues accessing the internet. We can conduct your follow up via a telephone consultation should this be preferred over Zoom.
Our motto is to Teach the World to Sleep so we want our assessments and our information to be available to as many people as possible so we try to accommodate as many people as possible.
