Insomnia is the medical term for not getting enough sleep or trouble sleeping without interruption. You may have difficulty falling asleep, wake up too early, or wake up at various times during the night. Either way, insomnia of any kind can keep you from feeling rested and reduce your performance during the day.
There are many common causes of insomnia, including stress and anxiety, sleeping environment, lifestyle, shift work and poor sleeping habits.
Sometimes, insomnia can be a combination of factors, including an underlying medical condition.
Yes, although it’s not as simple as taking a pill. The most effective treatment of both short term and chronic insomnia is a prescribed treatment plan consisting of behavioural changes, sleep management techniques and an appropriate medication to speed up the process.
You should seek an in-person visit with your GP if you’re experiencing symptoms that may indicate an underlying medical condition. Completing our initial questionnaire will give us a good idea if this is required.
Not getting enough sleep, either in quality or duration, has its daytime consequences. Lack of sleep is widespread in Australia, affecting 33-45% of adults.

HOW WE STACK UP
Absolutely. However, curing insomnia often means establishing habits that are more conducive to good sleep. And habits, especially routines you follow every day, can be tough to break. That’s why guided treatments are so much more effective in correcting sleep long term.
Acute insomnia is trouble sleeping from one night to one month. Insomnia is chronic when it happens at least three nights a week for three months or more.
It varies based on the length of time you’ve been experiencing insomnia, as well as other contributing factors. Some clients will see benefits within days, while other clients may not see improvement for several weeks.
Sleeping pills may benefit short term insomnia. However, they don’t correct the underlying issue causing the sleep problem. They can also be addictive.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) is considered first-line treatment for chronic insomnia and beneficial in short term insomnia. Behavioural therapy has a much better success rate at fixing insomnia long term, without the side effects and dependence associated with most sleeping pills.
Yes. The Harley REBUILD program can reduce or eliminate sleeping pill use in 90% of cases.
Fact No. 1
Your brain needs it
Lack of sleep is linked to decreased mental functioning and well-being, including reduced mood, thinking, concentration, memory and learning. Reaction times are also affected.
Fact No. 2
Your body needs it
If left untreated insomnia can be bad for your health. Sleeping less than 6 or 7 hours on average per night may increase your risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Fact No. 3
Sleep can be hard
You can’t force yourself to fall asleep – just like you can’t digest your food faster. Sleep onset is not something we can control. We can only create the right conditions for sleep – both in our minds and in our environment.
