TALKWORKS for Improving Sleep Workshop

Free wellbeing workshops from the NHS

Do you struggle to get to sleep or keep waking up at night? Do you find it hard to switch off and find your sleep suffers as a result? If so, you may benefit from our TALKWORKS For Improving Sleep workshop, where we’ll teach you some handy tools and techniques to help you get a better night's sleep.

Our NHS workshop is a free CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) session open to anyone over 18 who is living in Devon (with the exception of Plymouth). The two hour workshop will help you learn more about:

  • The science of sleep
  • Common sleep problems and their causes
  • Quality of sleep vs quantity
  • Evidence-based ways of improving sleep
  • Additional support available

Participants can expect an interesting and insightful interactive workshop, complete with useful handouts and links to further resources. We encourage you to take part in discussions and exercises, but if you are not comfortable with this, it is not mandatory and there is no pressure to join in.

All of our sleep workshops are currently being run remotely via Microsoft Teams, so you will need a smartphone, laptop or computer, a working email address, and confidential space to take part. There are regular daytime and evening sessions for you to choose from:


Date  Time
Wednesday 12 June 17:30

"I came to TALKWORKS for help with insomnia. My therapist was excellent: knowledgeable about sleep but also a caring, responsive person to talk with. She gave me space to be who I am, and to start where I’m starting, but was firm when steering my direction of travel. She changed my relationship with sleep, which is what I needed.” Peter, former TALKWORKS patient


Your experience with us

Your feedback matters

“I could not fault the service I received. I was listened to and given so many different resources to help my anxiety and depression. I was so very low a year ago but with the amazing support from my therapist I feel more and more myself every day. Thank you TALKWORKS.”

“The therapy gently supported me to both understand and come to terms with my diagnosis and how it has impacted on me as a person for so many years. I felt I could be open and honest in a very safe space. I not only feel better, I understand myself better too.”

“I was apprehensive about using the service thinking I wasn't "bad" enough but a talk to the cardiac group by a TALKWORKS practitioner gave me confidence to self-refer. I was referred with respect and taken seriously throughout, felt safe and was given tools and advice to help myself take control of my situation.”
