Insomnia Program @ Avoka Health

Good sleep improves mood, anxiety symptoms, focus and concentration, and has also been found to lessen pain symptoms in people with chronic pain conditions. If you need help with improving your sleep, Giselle has specialist training and experience in helping people overcome severe insomnia. She has also developed an online sleep improvement program, called A Mindful Way to Healthy Sleep, that you can undertake between your individual sessions or as a stand alone self-help treatment for insomnia.

The A Mindful Way to Healthy Sleep online course is evidence-based and has been clinically validated in an independent study by Monash University researchers. The study found that 85% of people who completed the ‘A Mindful Way to Healthy Sleep’ said their sleep has significantly improved (on an standard sleep assessment called the ISI), and 75%  said they had sleep problems were minimal (‘normal sleep’ on the ISI).

If you have long standing severe sleep disturbance or have mild sleep problems and would like to learn more about how to sleep better, this course may be for you.  For more information go to www.amindfulway.com.au
