Lots of help: A sleep psychologist will help you to address sleep related concerns. He/she will address likely sleep education and cognitive psychotherapy. This type of therapy helps you control or eliminate sleep issues using sleep restriction, sleep hygiene, biofeedback and sleep relaxation.

Evaluation: The first appointment will normally include a general psychological evaluation focused in history of the events, and your bio-psycho-social data, also will review your medical, mental status, and family history.Expect to be asked to describe in detail all aspects of how (when, how long, etc etc) you sleep. Probably, cognitive-behavioral or other types of therapy will be described, offered to you.
