Introducing Andrew Green
Andrew is a CBT-I sleep therapist based in Bristol, in the UK. 🇬🇧
His professional background started in occupational therapy, where he first worked in mental health and then, for about 25 years, in neuropsychiatry.
In 1999, Andrew began working in a group treatment programme for people with insomnia, which triggered his dive into insomnia and other sleep problems.
Since leaving the health services, he's developed his own private therapy practice and coaches people from all over the world on sleep and insomnia, both in person and online.
Andrew also does occasional training events and hopes to get around to working on a new book in the near future. 📚
Therapy In Practice: How Does Andrew Work?
If you've thought about CBT-I, you may be wondering how a session on this even works - or how to get started.
Andrew shares some insight here.
How do you approach your work with clients?
Despite what some critics of CBT-I might say, the first step is always assessment, as it is in coaching - getting an account of the individual's sleep routines and what happens in sleep. 🧐
I also want to get a sense of how they lead their lives, where they live, and who they live with.
I particularly want to ensure that there is nothing that would be better managed (or that should be managed) at a sleep clinic.
What I do next depends very much on what anyone tells me, but often, it is to see whether a more regular [sleep] schedule can be established. 🗓️
