What Is The Link Between Poor Sleep & Mental Health?
Sleep plays an important role in our mental health and wellbeing, and sets strong foundations of a healthy mind and body. Lack of sleep, and poor sleep quality, can negatively impact our mental health and make us more prone to stress, anxiety, depression and lacking the energy to fully engage in our day-to-day activities.
At the same time, people who struggle with mental health issues are more likely to experience sleep difficulties, such as finding it hard to fall asleep, waking up in the middle of the night, or waking up very early in the morning. As a result of the lack of energy, people are less likely to self-care and look after themselves, creating a vicious cycle of poor sleep and mental health.
When we manage our mental health struggles, such as anxiety and depression, we start to sleep well, and this helps us to feel more emotionally stable with consistent energy.
EmotionMatters launched in 2016, and since then we have helped thousands of clients positively change their lives, providing treatment and support for mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, relationship problems and stress management.
We have partnered up with the Sleep Disorder Clinic so we can support people who struggle with their sleep and mental health. We care about delivering effective treatment in a professional and friendly way. Please get in touch, and see how we can support you in feeling better.

Therapy provides a space where you can work through problems and life issues that may be negatively impacting your sleep. It is a safe space where you can work through challenging patterns, stressful relationships and compulsive behaviours that are limiting your life in some way.
Here are some examples of issues you may want to bring to therapy that often impact sleep:
MINDHEALTH - Integrated Therapy & Nutrition For Good Mental Health & Sleep
MindHealth is an integrated psychological and nutritional programme designed by the EmotionMatters team to work with people who want to build a better relationship with their mind, body and emotions.
We will explore through psychotherapy how your thinking, behaviours and the way you manage your emotions affect your eating, exercise, sleep, any addictions, self-care and overall mental health.
The nutrition focus fully explores the root causes of imbalances in the body. This can include investigating nutritional deficiencies and imbalances contributing to overall mental health and wellbeing.
Our holistic treatment explores how lifestyle factors such as nutrition, stress, excessive exercise, alcohol, and disordered eating can affect your sleep, and in turn your mental wellbeing.
