Event description

Description

Lack of sleep is frequently a problem for clients. It is a symptom of anxiety, depression and trauma and seems inherent in modern life. There are increasing pressures at work and home, and stress resulting from shortages of time and money. These mean that few get enough sleep and many have problems sleeping. The UK Sleep Council estimate that we are getting one or two hours less sleep than in the 1950's.

Beyond this, scientific research is drawing links between poor sleeping habits and an array of health and psychological issues. These include type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's, heart disease, obesity, anxiety and burnout. As a result, we need to revisit the essential process of mental and physical recovery to see how we can do it better.

To address this problem we have invited Nick Littlehales, the well known sleep coach to run a workshop in Stockport. Nick believes that until the mid 1990s we were we were just about getting away with things. Since then, the traditional two day weekend has virtually disappeared. Shops are open all hours and electronic communications insinuate themselves into every aspect of our lives. The 24-7 working mentality has been born and we have made adjustments to keep up. We overstimulate with caffeine, pop sleeping pills to come down and burn the candle at both ends. The traditional idea of a good eight hours sleep has become a distant memory. And the situation for specific groups like single mothers or junior doctors is especially severe.

Nick's response to these problems is his R90 Sleep Recovery Programme. In the workshop he will describe the seven Key Sleep Recovery Indicators built into the programme. And within each of these he will suggest seven steps to improvement.

The workshop will be of interest to a wide variety of people. This includes coaches, counsellors and psychotherapists. But it also includes anyone with an interest in sleep, or who want improve their own sleep.

About the day

In the morning Nick will provide an introduction to sleep. He will describe his understanding of it and challenge the myth of 8 hours. He will then describe the seven Key Sleep Recovery Indicators and show how these can be applied in practice.

In the afternoon he will work through a case study that demonstrates the application of the the approach. He will then talk about how to build a sleep kit; how to check the environment; and describe 'bio hacks' that can be used.

The session will be interactive and there will be ample opportunity for questions
