What is a Sleep Retreat?….

A sleep retreat is a weekend away, at the beautiful Tudor Farmhouse Hotel, with stunning scenery, where you will relax, rewind, rejuvenate and learn all the skills you need to get your sleep back on track.

Do you have problems sleeping? Struggle getting to sleep, staying asleep or waking too early? Well, you are certainly not alone. 70% of the population have changed their sleeping habits since the COVID pandemic, according to the British Sleep Society 40% of the population have insomnia.

Do you feel you have tried everything, but nothing works? Why not join us for a sleep retreat at The Tudor Farmhouse Hotel in the Forest of Dean?

Certified sleep practitioner and nurse prescriber, Joanna Kippax, founder of WyeSleep, will direct the sessions. With many years of experience, you will be in safe and reliable hands.

The sleep retreat will dispel the myths around sleep and give you only evidence based information and techniques, so that you can leave the retreat feeling refreshed, informed, and able to manage your sleep in a positive and proactive way.

About the retreat:

Topics to be covered will include:

*What does sleep need?

*We’ll explore questions such as “Why can’t I get to sleep? Why do I keep waking through the night? Why can’t I get back to sleep and why do I wake so early in the morning?”

*What is stopping you from sleeping?

*Learn how to take control of your sleep, rather than sleep taking control over you.

*How to manage a racing mind at night.

*Sleep and the menopause (optional session)

*Learn techniques that you can apply at home, to see lasting improvement.

*This is not a sleep hygiene course, with tips and hints. (You will have tried that already!) It is an evidence-based treatment for insomnia.

*They’ll be plenty of time for questions and discussion.

*Excellent food, a beautiful hotel and time to explore the local area.

We hope you’ll join us to start your journey to better sleep and have a great weekend too!!
