A proprietary sleep system that aligns the mind, body and nervous system with sleep in a pre-bed routine.
The Art of Falling Asleep is here to help you facilitate the sleeping process. Sleep facilitation is a process where you follow a set of concepts, principles, and actions to guide you to sleep in a bedtime ritual. This process allows you to begin sleeping better in the short term, while your mindset, belief system and neurological pathways slowly experience a long lasting transformation.
It's more than advice, it's knowing exactly what to do every night and exactly why you are doing it.
There are specific milestones for each stage of the falling asleep and staying asleep process and ways to measure your progress.
These concepts, principles and actions introduce a whole new way of relating to yourself through the eyes of sleep. They go beyond learning relaxation techniques or CBT-I strategies, using circadian based themes and language to create connection between the mind and body, and flowing energy through the spiritual chakras.
The concepts, principles and actions are not a guide outside of you. They are a way of helping you connect to the intuition you have been needing to resolve the cognitive and emotional resistance built in to insomnia. They are your guide back to sleep using your natural intelligence.
This way of sleeping is not for everyone, but it is for you if deep inside you know the changes you need to make are from within, deriving from cognitive change and emotional surrender as you step into a new way of being that includes plentiful sleep. It is definitely for you if you realize that your insomnia is not something to fix, but your gift for a greater purpose.

There are 3 main reasons why people struggle to heal emotional insomnia:
They don't understand where the mental and emotional resistance is coming from and what to do about it.
They don't know how to build on the sleep they are already getting in order to increase their confidence to sleep.
They don’t have a reliable process for transitioning or crossing over into sleep.
One frustrating consequence of this is trying really hard to overpower these challenges with hacks and supplements you may not even need.

From Some of Our Clients
"Derek really helped me dive inward, to understand the root causes of my issues with sleep, and as we dug, we inevitably find more than we could have imagined. His techniques and strategies are well thought out, and work fantastically. Working with him not only has me sleeping well, but my perspective on many important aspects of my life have changed for the better."
"I was really impacted by our time together, some things really just shifted. One of them being that I rarely think about insomnia as the problem. As a result, my sleep started bringing specific messages for me - and I listened. It’s been more like developing a friendship, rather than solving a problem. Almost every night I sleep well, but even when I have a shorter night, the sleep is usually really good!"
“Working with Derek led me to learn what my sleep really needed to be great, things I never would have encountered on my own. I learned that exploration is integral to my spirit and sleep. I learned I had a deep-rooted fear of things going awry… coaching helped me discover the parts of that which were unfounded and reveal I was safe. Knowing this allows me to sleep. Coaching led me to so many different concepts that allow me to sleep.”
"I discovered that I have full control over my mind and the thoughts and behaviors that create good sleep. I look forward to sleep now and to waking up refreshed. And even though life throws curveballs that inevitably interfere with sleep, the fact that I now know how to get back on track every time is priceless. I know that I’m going to sleep no matter what. Derek, thank you for teaching me the tools and showing me how to become SLEEP CONFIDENT."
"Coaching with Derek has taken me on a journey I never expected to experience. Derek is so easy to talk to and I was able to open up to him and talk about things I wanted to change in my life. My heart is filled with gratitude now that I can sleep soundly every night! I still can't believe it. I am forever changed!”
"Derek is a brilliant, compassionate and totally packed with knowledge and experience to help you with not only sleep issues, but the deeper issues that create sleeplessness in the first place. He partners with you to make YOU the expert on YOU and resolve your issues yourself. He does this all with such an amazing presence, sense of humor and relaxed attitude that it makes it easy to show up and change."
"Finding Derek the sleep coach was probably one of the smartest things I’ve ever done. He truly is a miracle worker, it seems so unreal to me, but Derek has transformed my life. I’m now a sleeper! I never thought I would say those words. In less than 6 weeks, he was able to take me from a chronic insomniac to someone who regularly sleeps through an ENTIRE night! He is the real deal, hire him already!"
"Derek's ingenious approach to coaching is about tapping one's own intuition, I was finally able to cast aside decades of arcane regimens that only worked in the short term. Now I'm sleeping better, exercising smarter, eating wisely, and it's all with my own north star of inner guidance."
