Sleep Well

One of the more common complaints women are struggling to get on top of –  a simple good night’s sleep! To Sleep Well.

Generally, most of the perimenopausal women I know are endurance athletes, in all but name. Sandwiched between kids, parents, partner, work…these are busy times. But perimenopausal and menopausal women are not always skilled or consistent at prioritising self care…Unfortunately, at menopause, disrupted sleep is a big problem for many women…whether due to hot flashes and night sweats or stress, or jacked up cortisol levels or using alcohol as a nightly wind down

We do actually spend on average 1/3 of our lives sleeping. This is a crucial time for our bodies to recover from the degeneration of the day and prepare for the next day. If this vital restoration phase is reduced or impaired, there are significant negative impacts to your body and overall health both during the following day, and accumulating over the years.

I help women who can’t stop their minds racing at night, who suffer from sleep anxiety or who are reliant on props or pills to sleep. Examples are if you are a busy professional menopausal woman suffering from night sweats, or your sleep is disturbed as a result of chronic pain or another health condition. Whether you have had your insomnia for a few weeks or many years, can’t fall asleep or wake and can’t back to sleep, I can help you to have  ‘normal’ sleep behavior .

Sleep is a natural biological process that can’t be controlled and trying to do so can actually make your sleep worse. My approach is free from pills and potions, rules and rituals. You won’t be asked to drink warm milk, have warm baths or engage in a lengthy wind down to get to sleep. Instead you’ll learn to retrain your brain to sleep naturally based on mindfulness approaches.

”I have had sleep problems for over 15 years and was constantly waking up in very early and being unable to get back to sleep. Clarissa provided me with effective and simple ways to get back to sleep or at least to be able to rest and relax until I was ready to get up. I have recommended her to several friends”
