Towards Better Sleep programme

Towards Better Sleep is a group insomnia programme that runs over 6 weeks with 4 x 1 hour sessions from the Psychology Consultants Morningside office. The next group commences mid 2015, to register call (07) 3356 8255 or email tbs@psychologyconsultants.com.au

Established and facilitated in 2003 by Clinical Psychologist Kathryn Smith and

Psychiatrist and sleep specialist Dr Curt Gray, Towards Better Sleep celebrate over 10 years of proven success. TBS is a cognitive behavioural treatment programme designed to help people suffering from insomnia and other sleep disorders and is held in small groups of 9 people or less.  The long standing program treats people in a group setting and provides practical ways to manage sleep issues on an ongoing basis.

The program consists of 4×1 hour evening sessions and runs over 6 weeks at the Morningside practice and focuses on cognitive behavioural techniques, correcting faulty thinking and relaxation strategies.

Here are just a few reasons why the programme and its group setting has proven effective for past participants.

  •  A group setting offers many benefits including reducing the cost of treatment and giving clients the opportunity to share and learn from each others insomnia experiences.
  • The cost is far less because of the group format, individual sessions are $185 each and you would need 2-3 sessions minimum.
  • The group has been running with very good results for over 10 years, with the same facilitators – a Clinical Psychologist and a Psychiatrist
  • The format of the group is laid out to successfully educate, correct, and complete homework strategies over the 6 weeks of the course
  • Participants learn from each other, and keep each other motivated to correct their sleep problems
