THE SIGMA APPROACH
A good night’s sleep is essential for our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. There is ample evidence that disturbed sleep leads to short-term and long-term detrimental effects and effects of poor sleep on the immune system are well documented in the scientific literature. It is also well established that prompt and effective treatment of sleep disorders results in a generalised improvement in functioning and wellness.
“At The London Sleep Centre we believe that the accurate assessment and diagnosis of sleep disorders combined with a multimodal approach to the treatment of sleep disorders is the only way to ensure a sustained and long-lasting improvement in sleep and its related symptoms,” he added
The centre’s philosophy is based on the belief that every individual is unique and requires a treatment plan that incorporates the individual within his/her wider context as part of a family, community and society.
This is why it combine science, medicine, psychology, social and holistic methods in our approach to every individual presenting with a sleep problem – and call this The Sigma Approach.
Sigma – In mathematics, the sigma symbol – Σ – represents the sum of several parts, which seems appropriate for a philosophy that’s all about integration.
