Although sleep problems differ at each stage of life, the same principles underlying sleep apply across the lifespan. Our links with the latest research developments in the treatment of sleep problems allows us to apply effective treatments to all people.
Adolescents (11 to 18 years)
Adolescent sleep problems are a huge issue worldwide. Up to 1 in 2 adolescents barely get enough sleep to function well during the day. Adolescent sleep problems include a delayed circadian rhythm and/or insomnia. These can be identified if the adolescent falls asleep very late at night, has difficulty getting out of bed in the morning, and sleeps-in on weekends. We offer cognitive behavioural therapy for adolescent sleep problems, which includes the use of bright light therapy for their delayed circadian rhythms.
