New to Spire Sussex Hospital, The Insomnia Clinic

April 2011

We all have a bad nights sleep from time to time but for some people it is a regular occurrence and can make day to day life a struggle. Being sleep deprived can result in not just day time fatigue but poor concentration, reduced motivation, anxiety and even depression.

Spire Sussex Hospital in Hastings, East Sussex are delighted be able to help with your sleep difficulties with our new Insomnia Clinic run by Dr Simon Merritt, Respiratory and Sleep Medicine Consultant and Mr Steve Clifford, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist.

Dr Simon Merritt and Mr Steve Clifford offer a treatment course called 'Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia' (CBT I). The aim of CBT is to remove symptoms such as stress and worry, to help you overcome problems associated with sleeplessness and to re-establish a healthy sleeping pattern.

As an evidence based approach, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help you to overcome insomnia and enjoy a good quality of life once again.
