I am so excited to announce my new audio course on overcoming insomnia that has just been launched on Insight Timer. What a privilege to be able to contribute to this fantastic app. The course is ten 15-minute sessions that cover the facts about sleep, the factors that interfere with sleep, the strategies to overcome insomnia and also what to do if nothing is working. I hope that people find it helpful and look forward to hearing the feedback!

Many people wait years before seeking help and only a small percentage ever see a mental health professional.
You want to know what DBT is? The team at The Young Adult & Family Center at the University of California, San Francisco have put together an engaging (and accurate!) video explaining just that.
