Sleep Disorder

“I’m having difficulty staying awake when sitting still, watching television or reading”,“ I feel irritable or sleepy during the day”,  “I need to take something (sleeping pills, nightcap, supplements) in order to get to sleep”,  “ I wake up frequently during night”,“ I have trouble controlling emotions”, “I often get told by others that I look tired”

Does this sound familiar? Do you lack quality sleep, which have a negative impact on your energy, emotional balance, and health? Does this leave you desperate for a good night's rest? Is stress leading to sleepless nights?  Do you think you can fully catch up on sleep you've lost?

Individuals who suffer from sleep disorder may lead to frustration and clock-watching. Over time, you may associate your bed with wakefulness, not rest. Serious health conditions have been associated with chronic lack of sleep, including obesity, hypertension, diabetes, heart attack, and stroke. Don’t you want to know what’s causing your sleep disorder- whether it is stress, medication, illness or other issues?

Perhaps these worries are keeping you away from finding the truth! You may have taken sleeping pills over the counter, or consumed alcohol to get sleep. You may sleep in the daytime to catch up with sleep but nothing seems to be working.

At MCCG, we provide a confidential, compassionate, and non-judgmental environment where you can speak to one of our therapists. Do you need a stress Test? We can help you set the goal to change or correct misconceptions about the ability to fall and stay asleep. We can help you to build strategies to decrease your anxious and depressive thoughts about your sleeplessness.
