Sleep Difficulties-Adults Divorce Mediation

Sleep Difficulties-Adults

Sleep difficulties in adults can occur for a great number of reasons, both common and unusual.  For most people, sleep is a routine, but many people experience sleep difficulties, such as insomnia on a fairly regular basis. While it usually clears us in a short while, it can become a long-term problem, because sleep is important for our bodies and minds to stay healthy.

Sleep difficulties can, after a few weeks, cause a person to feel tired all the time, and cause them to nod off during the day. Difficulty concentrating, making decisions and feeling depressed are some of the symptoms of sleep difficulties. People who perform jobs that require a lot of concentration, such as operating heavy machinery or driving, can pose a danger to themselves and others if they suffer from sleep difficulties. Over time, sleep difficulties can lead to high blood pressure, overweight and diabetes.

Many situations can contribute to sleep difficulties, including too much noise or  light in the bedroom, a bed that is too small or uncomfortable, or a partner with a different sleep pattern. Lifestyle choices such as smoking, going to bed too late, lack of exercise, consuming caffeine, no set bedtime routine, and illness can also cause insomnia.

A therapist can help you deal with sleep difficulties, by using progressive muscle relaxation therapy, sleep restriction and cognitive therapy.

If you are looking for a counsellor or psychologist who offers sleep disorders counselling to address sleep difficulties you may want to search the directory to find a professional whose approach will suit you best.

Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is a great option for couples standing at the end of a marriage, which is one of the most stressful experiences in life. While the partner who is left behind is bound to be filled with grief, anger, guilt, shame, anxiety and fear, the one who opts to leave is not free from emotional issues, either. The stress compounds when children are involved and can cause lengthy and gut-wrenching legal battles.

Therapy can help couples who are in doubt about the future of their marriage, while others require help transitioning from being one of a couple to becoming single.

Divorce Mediation offers both parties the opportunity to find closure and to come to terms with some of the outstanding issues of divorce that may otherwise extend litigation time and costs.
