Pathways to Sleep: Invitation to the World of Sleep Coaching

28 min read

William Bergquist, Ph.D. and Brigitte Lewis, B.S. Neuroscience

Welcome to the Pathways to Sleep project. As part of this project, we have identified four components of an individualized strategy for you to achieve successful sleep for yourself or for your clients (with you serving as a sleep coach). We know that this is a big order and that many other people (and many advertisements) are telling you that they can help you achieve successful sleep. Many voices are to be heard because this is a very important domain of health—and for many of us, a good night of sleep is hard to achieve. We can’t personally promise you successful sleep; however, we can identify the four components that you need to keep in mind when planning for your own sleep or assisting your coaching client with their sleep.

Most importantly, we have identified more than 70 pathways to sleep which cluster around these four components. Furthermore, we can provide you with a Pathway to Sleep Matrix that not only lists these pathways, but also tells you something about what experts say about each pathway, how your fellow sleepers judge the efficacy of each pathway, and how much each pathway costs and how accessible is it to you. That is quite a bit of information that you and/or your client will be able to use in making decisions about the pathways to follow or at least try out and evaluate. In essence, we are inviting you and/or your coaching client to become your own or their own personal sleep researcher.

The Proposal

We have a proposal for you. We can provide you with The Pathways to Sleep Matrix. It provides information that is generated from responses to the Pathways to Sleep Inventory (which yields user ratings). As noted, the Matrix also provides expert ratings and information regarding the cost and accessibility of each of the 70 pathways as related to improved sleep quality.

We ask only that you complete a Survey Monkey version of the Pathways to Sleep Inventory which enables us to expand our user rating data base. It will take you about 10 minutes to complete the survey. You will receive the Matrix once you have provided us with the completed inventory as well as your email address (sent separately to insure anonymity of your completed inventory)

By offering your own responses to an online inventory, you will not only receive a copy of the updated Pathways to Sleep Matrix but also be sent (via e-mail) regular updates of the matrix and essays about sleep that are based on new research findings and our identification of new pathways.

The Matrix is an exceptional coaching tool that you can use, at no cost, in your own work as a coach. The other documents you will receive keep you informed of the latest findings and practices related to the rapidly growing fields of sleep-based coaching.
