Research shows that depressed people dream much more than non-depressed people, distorting the balance between recuperative slow-wave sleep and energy-burning dream sleep. Clearly, because they spend so much time worrying and imagining, they have far higher amounts of unexpressed arousal to discharge. With so much energy spent on all the excessive dreaming they have to do, they wake up exhausted and lacking in motivation. It is necessary for people in depression to be helped to challenge their negative thoughts, imagine more realistic outcomes and futures and to find ways to put meaning and purpose back into their lives. This could be through exercise, team sports, doing something for other people, learning a new skill, calling up old friends, and so on. Very often, people who are depressed start to withdraw from their usual routines, stopping going out or phoning or seeing friends, and this makes them dwell on their misery even more. It is essential, therefore, that they are helped to start meeting their emotional needs again, in healthy and satisfying ways. If the depression is due to post-traumatic stress, it is also necessary to stop the traumatic memory from continuing to interfere with life in the present. The rewind technique, a simple, non-invasive method of detraumatisation that all human givens practitioners learn, can achieve this quickly. Dwelling on and digging up the past is dangerous. Neuropsychological research has shown that this has a physical effect on the brain, strengthening the neuronal connections with misery and negative thinking. We get better at piano or football with practice and, unfortunately, we get better at depression with practice too! So, it really is important to think to the future instead – to learn to shift unhelpful thinking patterns, take back control, find ways to bring meaning and purpose back into life and to look forward with hope.

Sleep Disorder

Getting enough sleep is a vital component of our physical and mental health. Unfortunately, when it's hard to fall asleep or get enough sleep, our bodies and minds can go into a state of panic and depression. For me, understanding the importance of healthy sleep and how to get back on track after an interrupted or broken sleep has been a major part of my professional life. I often work with individuals who are struggling with getting enough sleep, and I often find that a few weeks of not getting enough can quickly become a major factor in their overall health. Understanding the various aspects of ourselves can help us improve our quality of life. Getting enough sleep can help us feel more alert, happy, and alive. I'm happy to help people from different age groups improve their quality of life. I also know how their life stages affect their sleep, such as during the menopause or post-menopausal period.

London, England therapist: Lisa Sanfilippo, therapist
Sleep Disorder

Lisa Sanfilippo

Therapist, MA, MSc, UKCP, MBACP
Sleep is a building block of our mental and physical health- and when it is hard to get to sleep, stay asleep or have deep restful sleep, our our minds and bodies can go into shutdown, panic or distress. I've dedicated a large part of my professional life to understanding what makes for healthy sleep and how to heal broken or interrupted sleep. You can find the two books I've published by looking Lisa Sanfilippo and Sleep Recovery. I often work with people primarily on their sleep, and we find that this can change dramatically in a few weeks, and that longer term deep change can involve understanding physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of ourselves. When we bring balance back in these areas, we start to sleep better and feel more alive, alert and happier. I am happy to work with people from all age groups, and I have a keen understanding of how our life stage affects our sleep, including post-50, menopause/perimenopause.
