Is insomnia getting in the way of your sleep?
We’re here to help.
What kind of insomniac are you?
Around one third of adults in the UK regularly experience insomnia and as many as 50% of us have trouble getting to sleep at least once a month. It is normal to have one or 2 bad nights, but if you have been struggling to sleep well for more than a few months, we can help.
There are 3 main issues around insomnia and it is possible to suffer from a combination of them.
This is where there is a difficulty in falling asleep, regularly taking more than 30 minutes to fall asleep on the majority of nights.
Someone with sleep-maintenance insomnia wakes during the night but then finds it difficult to get back to sleep.
Early morning waking
This is where you wake earlier in the morning than you wish and cannot then fall back to sleep.
Are you struggling to sleep?
We are experts in sleep. We understand that everybody is different, so we work with you to tackle your individual sleep problems. From sleep therapist sessions and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia, to mattresses and mattress toppers, we can help you to improve your sleep when suffering from fibromyalgia.
Firstly, we need to look at the cause of your poor sleep.
How you can sleep better
Whether you have been suffering for 2 weeks or 2 years, you can get back to good quality sleep.
The recommended treatment from NICE is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-i) – not to be confused with CBT. It is recognised worldwide and is often recommended by GP’s. The programme works through tried and tested steps to help you to identify and change thoughts and behaviours around sleep, allowing you to learn new, good habits and overcome negative thoughts around sleep.
Your personalised sleep programme
We can help you to rebuild your relationship with sleep. We use CBT-i alongside 1-2-1 support from a dedicated sleep therapist.
At SleepHubs, we take a holistic approach, so we can help with not just insomnia, but also anything else that is affecting your sleep.
Why do I need to sleep better?
Sleep is the third pillar of health, alongside exercise and nutrition. It really is vital for a happy, healthy life.
Over time, sleep deprivation and poor quality sleep can cause a plethora of problems including stress, anxiety and depression as well as physical health issues such as a weakened immune system, an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease, and a higher risk of obesity. (Ever had a terrible night’s sleep and found yourself eating comforting junk food the following day?)

I have found the course extremely useful. The major difference is that my attitude towards sleep has changed, I’m no longer worried about going to bed and not being able to sleep…”— Marjoleine Butler
