Benefits of good sleep will help with fatigue, weight management and digestion issues to name but a few of the additional bonuses you will take away from your time with us.

 

A CAREFULLY STRUCTURED INSOMNIA TREATMENT PLAN THAT WORKS -Designed by a former chronic insomniac and fully qualified Naturopath/Nutritionist.

Tristian is the founder of Counting Seashells, a business dedicated to helping insomniacs discover better sleep no matter how chronic or long lasting the problem. Tristian struggled with stress and insomnia for over 20 years, so she knows what it feels like to feel burnt out all the time.

After years of study and with her own personal healing experience, you will discover practices and sleep therapies that work to reset your sleeping mechanisms and your mindset about sleep. Saying this, no two sleep disorders are the same so you won't be given a one size fits all approach. The purpose of your time with us is so we can take an in depth look into your personal life situation in order to get to the bottom of your insomnia triggers and tailor make a sleep coaching package just for you.
