At the CBT Center, we offer individualized treatments for a range of sleep disorders, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), a highly effective and research-validated treatment for Primary Insomnia. This approach can, often in a matter of weeks, significantly help you to sleep more easily and deeply, and help you wake up more refreshed than before treatment.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a structured program to help you challenge, and replace, thoughts and behaviors that cause or contribute to insomnia. The cognitive part of the treatment focuses on identifying and challenging thoughts and beliefs that tend to keep you in an agitated or frustrated state when trying to sleep. The behavioral part focuses on eliminating behaviors that worsen sleep and replacing these problematic behaviors with habits that facilitate and promote sleep.
CBT-I, as practiced at the CBT Center of Southern California, consists of the following features:
- Cognitive therapy
- Stimulus control therapy
- “Time in bed” restriction
- Sleep hygiene
- Relaxation skills
Insomnia is very treatable! Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), an empirically-supported treatment, is designed specifically for sleep problems.
We are sleep experts here at the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Center of Southern California, and we offer CBT-I to the public.
