  • SRT for insomnia (SRTi)
    • The philosophy of SRTi is to increase awareness of the relations between sensory signals and the feeling of wellbeing or discomfort. In theory, focus on these relations will help you to defocus on the situation of being awake in bed. By mastering this shift of focus, several patients treated at Oslo Søvnsenter has experienced relief of insomnia symptoms. The mechanism of SRTi may be independent or it may be a potentiation of cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBTi).

Words of force (inspired by «Invictus» by William E Heneley)

Out of the sheets that covers me
Black is the night from pole to pole
I am the master of my fate
I am the captain of my soul
