Sleep psychology is a behavioral science that focuses on thoughts, behaviors, and/or emotions that may be interfering your ability to get a good night’s rest. A sleep psychologist does not prescribe medication but rather aids in providing you with healthy habits and strategies for sleeping.
Retrain yourself to sleep.
Strategies in sleep psychology include retraining your mind and body for consistent, restful sleep. Some approaches to aid in sleep include changing habits around eating, exercising, and what to do if you cannot fall asleep after going to bed.
This type of treatment also provides ways to re-evaluate your thoughts associated with sleep and other areas of your life that may be causing stress.
