"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."

Treat the cause, not the symptoms

The majority of sleeping problems – like difficulty going to sleep, staying asleep and waking up too early – can be addressed with effective sleep therapy and coaching. We provide online therapy sessions from the comfort of your home.

Our process

An outcome-based approach is followed where the goal is to empower you to reach your realistic sleep goals with the help of registered professional sleep coaches and a network of independent medical professionals.

Conducted online or in person, during the assessment we complete scientifically-backed questionnaires in addition to a complete assessment interview. This is to gain a total holistic view of your health and sleep history. We identify your unique sleep health challenges and then present you with a report detailing your sleep health conditions, as well as recommendations to overcome your challenges. This report can then be sent to your family doctor if you so choose, or to your referring healthcare practitioner.
Together we create a total solution to overcome your sleep challenges. No one is the same, and therefore your solution plan will be unique to you.
It will usually take six sessions to successfully solve your sleeping problems. Usually a week apart, these consultations are 30-60 minutes long. We are very focused on performance tracking and monitoring so at the beginning of each session we will track and plot your key performance indicators before we start with the consultation session for that week. Sometimes, depending on the type of sleep problem you may have, it will be necessary to refer you to a specialist like a sleep lab or specialist doctor to diagnose and treat some medical conditions that may impact negatively on your sleep health. We can refer to someone within our own network of healthcare practitioners, or we can refer to a healthcare practitioner of your choice.
