Alexandra will be holding one to one appointments in Liberty to help you find out what you need for a decent sleep every night.

Alexandra is an intuitive and considered therapist using techniques from CBT, Hypnotherapy, Mindfulness and Life Coaching to tackle ineffective behaviour and unhelpful thinking patterns that surround poor sleep to empower her clients to regain control over their lives. She is also a trained Yoga and Meditation instructor which uniquely influences the way she works.
Having recently launched a sleep series on her own website, Alexandra has some insights into some of the common mistakes people are making that can inhibit the sleep we are getting:
Mistake 1 – Spending Extra Hours in Bed
If we are feeling groggy or tired, it might seem like a good idea to “make up” for lost hours by sleeping in on the weekends. However, by doing this we actually disrupt our internal body clock, affecting future sleep habits. So if you find yourself wanting more sleep at the weekend, take it as a sign that you aren’t getting enough quality sleep during the week.
Mistake 2 – Paying Too Much Attention to Sleep
Our thoughts contribute significantly to our ability to fall asleep. When we struggle to get to sleep we tend to pay more attention to the process of sleep. We tell ourselves we ‘have’ to sleep, or remind ourselves how many hours there are left until our alarm. These worries about sleep arouse our nervous system and inhibit sleep.

Meet Alexandra for an appointment on Thursday 10th October at Liberty, London. To book your appointment email firstname.lastname@example.org.
