Sleep Coaching

SleepDrops® Sleep & Wellness Centre Director Kirsten Taylor talking with Sleep Coach Dr Anitha about why she gave up being a surgeon and became dedicated to helping people sleep better through holistic sleep coaching. Dr Anitha’s fascinating story of embracing mind body principals (Dr Anitha is also a Health Your Life Coach – Louise Hay) to bring about balance came as a result of her own health challenges and ultimately lead to a profound shift in prioritising self care. Dr Anitha’s passion lies with helping those affected by cancer and freeing people from insomnia. This is a lovely interview which gives current and future patients insights into how sleep coaching works and why you should consider making an appointment with Dr Anitha.

What is a Sleep Coach

A sleep coach is someone who will help you attain 8 hours of quality sleep consistently, which in turn will help you stay healthy – both physically and mentally and look, feel and function at your best. Seeking support to improve your sleep quality will also help you to maximise your personal and professional potential and live the life you deserve.

Our Sleep and Wellness Centre is lucky to be able to offer the Sleep Coaching services of the highly qualified and experienced Dr Anitha. Anitha is not only a ICF recognised Life Coach, but also a former Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon with over 15 years of experience, a certified BBT-i Practitioner and Heal Your Life® workshop facilitator.

Brief Behavioural Therapy (BBT-i)is a psychological modality derived from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT-i). CBT-i is the gold standard treatment for Insomnia and is traditionally delivered in 8-10 sessions. BBT-I is an effective yet condensed version of CBT-i delivered over just four consecutive weeks. It utilises critical behavioural principles that can help you reset your sleep-wake cycles so you can enjoy deeper, longer and consistent sleep again.

Sleep can sometimes require healing at a deeper level, and Dr Anitha uses the skills she has acquired through her work with clients as well as her experience as a trained Heal Your Life® workshop facilitator to address these deeper issues. This work is based on the philosophy of Louise Hay, one of the pioneers who saw the mind-body connection back in the 70s and is still highly recognised and validated worldwide.

Working with Dr Anitha, your sessions will include an in-depth look into your sleep issues and a customised plan developed with you to cater to your lifestyle, budget and individual sleep needs.
