"I did treatment for 5 weeks, and these have been life changing.
I learnt the discipline and dedication required to help me succeed when it comes to managing my sleep. The cognitive therapy was incredibly useful in helping me reframe how I thought of sleep and any future slips or relapse I might have in future. I am truly grateful for this process and would recommend to anyone who is struggling with sleep/ insomnia."
- Nokuthula K. (Google review)
"Words can't describe how much you have improved my life
with your words of encouragement and your therapy for sleep hygiene. I would have never thought in a million years how important sleep hygiene is. Before my therapy and my sleep problems kicked in I felt hopeless & depressed but you have really helped me. I appreciate it immensely, you are really the best and you do go out of your way to help your clients. "
- Eloise P.
"Your advice is always precise and to the point,
...something that all Apnea sufferers need to adjust to their new way of life. As you know it took me years to accept and sleep with a CPAP machine which I found needed adaptation and adjustment to my temperament and breathing patterns. Finally you and I got it right and I thank you for your patience and understanding."
- Peter T.
"Realistic and practical solutions provided."
