ADOLESCENTS (11 to 18 years)

Adolescent sleep problems are widespread, with 1 in 2 adolescents barely getting enough sleep to function well during the day.

Is your adolescent:

  • having difficulty falling asleep?
  • hard to wake in the morning?
  • unable to concentration at school or having lots of sick days?
  • sleeping in a long time on weekends?
  • using lots of technology before bed?
  • worrying in bed?

 

Many adolescents can develop a delayed body clock, taking a long time to fall asleep, have trouble waking in the morning, and sleep in a long time on weekends. Others can develop insomnia like problems, and have anxiety before sleep.

We offer cognitive behavioural therapy for adolescent sleep problems, which can have successful outcomes in a short amount of time. We also offer Bright Light Therapy, which is a proven treatment for body clock issues.

We are also very experienced in helping adolescents with issues such as anxiety, depression, anger, and time management issues, which often go hand in hand with sleeping problems.
