Are you suffering from poor sleep? Do you find that it spills over into other parts of your life? Your mood around the people you love? Your self-esteem?
It may not surprise you to learn that insomnia is significantly more prevalent in women than in men.
Sleep is not an isolated part of our life. It interacts with reproductive health, hormonal transitions like menopause, and the stresses of our work and family lives. As women, we also tend to focus emotionally and physically on others before taking time to care for ourselves.
This scarcity of self-care can lead to stress and insomnia. Unfortunately, most women find little support when coping with these symptoms. But help is out there and you’re not in this alone. My mission is to help you get the rest you need by taking a holistic, collaborative approach to sleep issues.
Whether you are expecting, parenting an infant, or simply a mother dealing with the chaos of daily life — there are unique challenges to sleep for mums including the guilt that some might carry to invest in their own wellbeing. You deserve healthy sleep, it’s a basic human need and right. I’ll work with you to develop a sleep practice specifically tailored for the challenges you are facing.
Menstrual Cycle & Perimenopause
The hormonal changes your body undergoes during menopause and as part of the menstrual cycle can have a variety of symptoms. But one that doesn’t get talked about often is insomnia. The hormonal effects of our periods or the perimenopause, together with related changes in lifestyle, can also lead to disturbed sleep. Together, we’ll come up with a plan to help you find replenishing sleep whether you are going through your menopausal transition or your period.
Somnia’s mission is to help women get the rest they need by taking a holistic approach to women’s sleep issues. I will work with you to understand the unique combination of experiences and responsibilities in your life that are negatively impacting your sleep.
“Thank you to the work you have done with me. It has not only impacted my sleep positively but also my outlook on life and taking back control of my inner state to keep on going. You are very compassionate, wise and caring and the tools you have shown me will certainly be used for life.”– Private client
Stress and anxiety are leading causes of sleep problems. And if work-related stress is impacting your rest, then your lack of sleep is probably impacting your work and quality of life as well. We can break this cycle one step at a time.
Lack of sleep can have a compounding effect on your life: impacting your family, your work, and your own sense of self. You might feel guilty over how your lack of sleep lets others down. You might find yourself in a perpetually low mood.
The quality of your sleep and the quality of your waking life are inextricably linked. If you are tired of being tired, and ready to invest in your own well-being, this is a perfect time to start.
