Format: Paperback
Having read sasha's first book a few months ago and seeing quick results, I was excited to hear she was releasing a new book the effortless sleep companion. At first I thought, but surely there's not much more to cover, but there is and she covers a variety of questions that have been put to her over the years.  The book also concentrates on thoughts and negative thinking which keeps our insomnia going. I particularly like her description of the fear cycle that keeps us in that insomnia trap. she says that if you don't fear insomnia it becomes powerless and I totally agree with this, since I have realised that after a sleepless night I can still function and go to work (although I may feel rubbish) I can still get through the day  and know that eventually I will sleep!. It really is amazing how much our thoughts effect us. Having suffered with anxiety I have had my eyes opened to this fully over the past year.

There is also a section on setbacks and what happens when you go through a bad patch again. This was very reassuring to know that this is perfectly normal. It is how you react to these bad nights that will make all the difference.

Sasha's writes in a way that really speaks to you. There's something about the way a person writes when they have suffered what you have, that speaks to you on a different level and there is true understanding.

I would definetly recommend this book, in fact her advice applies not just to sleep but is also a helpful attitude to life in general.

I have purchased both of Sasha books now and this book is exceptional as it goes into more detail than the Effortless Sleep Book. My problem started in February 2014 through a noisy neighbour and stress from work. After years on end sleeping a solid 8 hours a night I found I was waking up 10-12 times a night and only ever achieving stage 1 sleep. Like many others i rushed off to the chemists for OTC drugs that amplified the problem, enrolled on a SRT program which made the problem worse! After reading quite a bit myself I realised that the problem was essentially just a learned bad habit amplified by my own actions! Anyway after starting to commit to the 12 commandments as I like to call them and learning to understand insomnia a little better or I like to call insomnia bad sleeping habits! i have found over the last week i have had 1 bad night now waking up a 6-7 times but getting straight back to sleep to the other 6 nights waking maybe 2-3 times and getting back to sleep straight away.

My mother after reading Sasha first book has went from 30 years of bad sleep spending most of her night reading to sleeping from 11pm to 0630am every night now, it took her 4 weeks to turn the 30 year habit around!

I agree with the commentator in the book who calls Sasha and angel! Not many people after suffering what Sasha went through for 15 years would still want to actively engage with something that wreaked havoc on her life for so long! So thank you Sasha both from me who is still recovering and from my mother 30 years of bad sleep gone in 4 weeks! Thank you!

For anyone who has suffered chronic insomnia I believe loneliness can be the scariest thing. Sasha delivers not just the comfort of someone who has been through it all herself, but absolute logic and actual solutions that ring true. Instinctively I knew this was the solution because it all felt so familiar and the answers so right. In a world saturated with self-help books, this is the only thing worth taking the time to follow. I needed to hear some tough love, I was stopping and starting, trying things then ditching them - Sasha gave me a talking to in the best possible way. And for the first time I really feel positive and on my way back to normality.

I bought this hoping it would help me to "mop up" my frustrating residual feelings towards sleep and the amount of time it took me to fall asleep. I found the first book very helpful although, like others, found some contradictions. There is more helpful advice in this book including that you are likely to experience problems with sleep at some point and not to panic about it. My "safety net" is that I will fall asleep eventually and I always seem to these days, waking feeling generally like I have had enough sleep. In the past, when I have panicked about not getting enough sleep, I have suffered nights of very very little sleep. Not clock watching is a huge tip because it makes the problem worse if you are obsessed with time and it is much easier to give yourself a positive message that you are getting enough sleep without this as you have no proof ! My issues have not completely gone but feel much further away and I feel much more like I used to. This was confirmed today when I woke feeling worn out, a feeling that lasted all day. Whilst I still dwell on it (hard not to when you're dog tired), it also dawned on me that I hadn't had this worn out feeling for a while so it was not the norm for me anymore. This is such a relief after feeling so tired for months. I look forward to a better night's sleep tonight and logically know that there is no reason why I should suffer any worse sleep than the next person. I agree with others that sometimes you can't sleep and it's not because of your attitude or bad habits. Also, that for chronic insomnics with no "trigger" event the method may not work. From my point of view I had got myself into a panic mentally that I found very difficult to shake and this really helped me.

Lastly I have found The sleep salon product that Sasha mentions very helpful. The tracks are v easy to listen to and helpful for me as, when I listen in bed they distract my thoughts from focussing on falling asleep.
