AT, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia

As a person who has struggled with insomnia for thirty plus years, I am grateful for the insomnia program and the compassion and understanding of Leah Corkum.
 
With this program I learned skills to help me overcome difficult nights, and I now average 7 hours of sleep per night.  As I worked through the program, and continue to practice what I have been taught, I have replaced negative sleep thoughts with positive sleep thoughts.  The program has been a rewarding experience for myself and I highly recommend it.

ST, Sleep Coaching for ADHD

Speaking with Marlee was an incredibly affirming experience. I've never felt so validated about all the troubles I've had with sleep and it was helpful understanding the "why" behind the struggles. 
 
The strategies we discussed to compensate for these issues have noticeably helped…It's very encouraging to finally hear strategies that take into account the struggles I've been experiencing my whole life.

MM, Adult Sleep Coaching

I have struggled with restless nights and low-quality sleep for over 40 years. I had bought all the gadgets off Amazon, and tried all the advice I could find on the internet.
It wasn't until I met with Marlee and Leah from Sleep Works that I found out what works for me. With their support I'm now getting restful sleep pretty much every night. 
 
I have so much more zest for life and energy, I feel like a completely new person thanks to Sleep Works!
