Sleeplessness can be exhausting, frustrating and difficult to deal with alone. A lack of sleep may impact on our ability to work, socialise and indeed our ability to truly enjoy our lives. Sleep is necessary to all, and to be deprived of it can have serious physiological and emotional effects on the sufferer. Whilst sleeping tablets may help some, it may be more beneficial to find the root of the problem. There may be a psychological cause for your sleeplessness which can be identified and treated through counselling techniques which may ultimately benefit your general wellbeing as well as curing your insomnia.
