Sleepless nights and anxiety are common symptoms of a traumatized nervous system.

Trauma and chronic stress cause the body to enter into a state of hyperarousal, causing us to feel on edge and preventing us from settling into a state of restorative sleep.2

The body’s lack of restful and restorative sleep begins to have the following impact:

  • Dysregulates the nervous system2
  • Increases the noradrenaline levels of the body4
  • Triggers traumatic memories2
  • Induces nightmares2
  • Increases anxiety4
  • Decreases emotional resiliency2

While our body’s natural protective instincts work to help us survive, living in this state of survival creates a continuous cycle of anxiety and sleep deprivation, depleting the body and mind to the point of exhaustion. This begins to overwhelm the body’s ability to cope and heal after trauma.3,4

According to Dr. Bessel van der Kolk and sleep specialists, Dr. Matthew Walker, and Dr. Robert Stickgold, the process of restoration that occurs during REM sleep holds deep value in the processing and integration of traumatic memories. Therefore, making sleep a powerful tool to heal and process traumatic memories.3,4

Drawing inspiration from the works of Dr. Peter Levine, Dr. Stephen Porges, Deb Dana, Dr. Bruce Perry, Dr. Pat Ogden, Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, and Dr. Gabor Maté, Rewire Trauma Therapy has worked to carefully curate a bottom-up, somatic and body-based approach to trauma healing that will support you and others in healing trauma at its roots to help improve one’s quality of sleep to relieve the effects of trauma in a way that words cannot.

This online Healing Sleep After Trauma Program has been curated to support you and others in decreasing the noradrenaline levels of the body. This can help to shift the nervous system and body to a calmer and more regulated state to soothe the body into a place of restorative sleep where true healing can begin.1

Deirdre O'Connor


As a trauma-informed Somatic Therapist ,teacher and educator , I specialise as a Trauma , Sleep and Anxiety counsellor. I have a particular passion for helping clients resolve the emotional distress underlying a lot of PTSD and attachment-based trauma. I have spent over two decades helping students and clients work directly with the body , mind and nervous system to help unhook from the busyness of life that keep us in that loop of ‘tired but wired’ that stops us from sleeping deeply and restoratively each night.

I’ve been where you are now, as some years back I experienced upheaval in my personal life and my sleep really suffered. I experienced many restless nights when sleep wouldn’t come and know the anxiety, frustration and hopelessness that comes along with the endless nights.

Thankfully I was able to draw on my well of therapeutic knowledge and was able to find my way back to sound sleep. This experience inspired me to found Deep Sleep Clinic in 2013, so I could help other people who find it hard to sleep - so that they wake up rested, refreshed and ready for the day ahead.

I hold multiple therapeutic qualifications, have gathered thousands of hours of experience working with clients just like you and am committed to using all of my knowledge for your benefit, to help you banish sleepless nights forever.

"It helps me to feel the body and everything that happens in it, to slow down, and be focused. I found the tools of Rewire Therapy very practical and it suits me."

Milena Blankman, Survivor
"I would think if someone was new to therapy, these exercises would help calm their mind and body so they could be more vulnerable and become more conscious and aware of their thoughts and feelings. This is a great program and I hope people take advantage of it."
Matt Domyancic, Medically Retired Cop
"I notice that I am 'tolerating' more feelings and exploring them as being transient, also to see if they are information for the here and now or something else. The approach is so gentle that I forget the power of that. I am grateful and get that this is ongoing."

Liz Gow, Survivor
