Insomnia Clinic Reviews
We love helping people sleep better. Read stories and reviews from a few of our thousands of happy patients.
I had several years of sleep issues, and had finally started down the route of using medications to sleep. They were helpful, but had their own drawbacks and dependencies. I came to the Insomnia Clinic on a physician's recommendation, but still felt quite skeptical that an afternoon seminar could really make much of a difference with my sleep challenges. I appreciated the clinical and physical reasons that were given for the guidelines suggested. I followed through with the plan given, and was amazed that within two weeks I was sleeping better than I had for a very long time, and better also than I did on the medications. I am so glad to have had this help and training.
I am willing to try and see if this will really work for me.
I went to the CBT-I course on 2/1/24. I found it interesting and informative. The teacher, Michele O. Did a very good job presenting the material in an interesting manner that made sense. At this point I believe making the changes suggested to my sleep/awake times will be the hardest for me but I am willing to try and see if this will really work for me. Time will tell.
I couldn't believe it would actually help. I was pleasantly surprised.
I was very skeptical about the Insomnia Clinic Workshop. I couldn't believe it would actually help. I was quite surprised. Many of the suggestions given during the workshop really helped. I was pleasantly surprised. I am sleeping better! I still have trouble some nights, but for the most part using the suggestions from the workshop really have helped me to sleep better. I strongly recommend the Insomnia Clinic Workshop.
I was quite worried that my sleep would never be the same. Dr. Gladwell was not only vital in helping me get back to my baseline, but provided me with new tools to cope with daily life stressors. I came out more resilient. Thank you!
I've tried on my own, mostly unsuccessfully, to improve my sleep. Dr. Glidewell was a tremendous help. I highly recommend his program. I wish I would have done it years ago.
Very glad Dr Glidewell has this as part of the insomnia treatment program
I was a bit apprehensive about the workshop and how it would go. Dr Okun did an excellent job of making it comfortable and very informative! There was a diverse group of people, and it was good for me to see and hear from others affected by the same problem. I learned a lot and am very glad Dr Glidewell has this as part of the insomnia treatment program. It was helpful to get the binder with all the information so that I can review it, plus get Dr Okun's phone number if I have questions.
I came away so encouraged and motivated...
I went to the clinic yesterday wondering if it was something that would really be able to help. I came away so encouraged and motivated to work on my sleep patterns. The information was presented in a clear way, and I like that there was almost always a 'why' behind the guidelines and suggestions. The interactive format was very helpful. I was given clear steps to take, but with the flexibility to consider my own patterns and needs and to adjust as necessary.
I am on my way to curing my insomnia issue
I felt the seminar/training was extremely beneficial. I learned quite a lot, and feel very optimistic, I am on my way to curing my insomnia issue, at least to a large degree. The seminar was presented in a very professional manner. It kept the participants engaged, and explained the problem of insomnia in a very unique way that was also easily understandable.
As a long-time insomnia sufferer for many years, I found Dr. Glidewell out of sheer desperation. I saw improvement within days after starting implementing his strategies. My sleep is more consistent; I don’t spend hours trying to get to sleep and I stay asleep without waking up. I’ve been able to back down on my meds and only take them as a “rescue” if I do have a bad night, which is becoming more and more rare. It’s a process, to be sure, and I’m still a work in progress, but the change has not only been noticeable for me, but also for my family, my work, and my relationships. Do yourself a favor if you struggle with your sleep and call Dr. Glidewell. You CAN regain better sleep…You CAN feel better. If I can sleep better, so can you. Realize there is HOPE and a way out of the vicious cycle of meds and exhaustion.
My Primary Care Manager suggested and referred me to Dr Glidewell. I was hesitant since insurance didn’t cover the cost. I was on prescription meds for 8 years. I started when my hubby was diagnosed with an invasive thyroid cancer. Didn’t help that I had been a shift worker for years and had this incredibly stressful job.😶. I can’t even remember when I slept through the night. I really was wanting to get off prescription meds. Regular visits, and keeping my sleep log combined with an afternoon with Dr Oka started me off on the path. I wasn’t so good at the formal mindfulness exercises but I found that I practiced mindfulness without realizing it. For me, it was worth the cost, as I used to toss and turn endlessly despite being on prescription meds. With this program, I have healthier sleep patterns and feel like I have conquered my insomnia. Even if I regress, I have a plan. Yay!!
5.0 out of 5 stars I wish that I had started with this book
When I was trying to figure out my insomnia puzzle, I read a lot of books related to sleep. None of them explained the very non-intuitive nature of insomnia nearly as well as this book. That is, none of them helped me to gain the understanding of how insomnia works that I was desperately searching for. After reading Glidewell's book, I now feel that I get it. That's powerful because once you understand a problem, you feel empowered to resolve it. The book also explains how to go about resolving insomnia. If you suffer from insomnia, this is the book you want to read.
Dr. Glidewell is kind and easy to work with. Having struggled with sleep for years, I really appreciated Dr. Glidewell’s expertise and guidance. It helped so much to have someone who really cared about me getting better and gave me skills and confidence that I could sleep better.
5.0 out of 5 stars This is THE manual for insomnia sufferers
The content of Glidewell's book is based in research and offers a willing reader proven methods to free oneself of insomnia and get off medication. The book is concise, well written and easy to follow. As a psychologist, I recommend this book highly.
Dr. Glidewell discerned quickly that I had other issues affecting my ability to sleep. So not only did he work with me on my sleep struggles but also my emotional disorder. After a year of meeting with Dr. Glidewell, I have gained better sleep habits and am sleeping better, and also now have the tools to continue to mindfully manage my emotions and choose alternative ways of thinking. Dr. Glidewell is sincere, professional, and patient. The program works if you do the work it takes.
I sleep reliably every night.
It's been a month and a half now, and I sleep reliably every night. It's not always amazing sleep, but it's sleep (although this weekend was amazing sleep - 9 hours each night!). At first, I took half of a THC/CBD gummy to help me sleep, but that was only for about a week. Now the only things I use for sleep are an eye mask (mandatory) and wax ear plugs - not even a fan in my room anymore (which is great because you can't always travel with a box fan). I find the wax ear plugs to be incredibly helpful not only for blotting out environmental noises, but for helping me hear my own rhythmic breathing - which does a great job of lulling me to sleep.
