But Hansen says that many people turn to sleep coaches after exhausting the usual methods, such as prescription sleep medications. Her client Jessica — an educator from Tennessee who declined to give her last name for professional reasons — says she tried giving up caffeine and sugar, establishing a nighttime routine and hiring a therapist to help her manage her anxiety, but she was still only sleeping about five hours a night. Hansen, who emphasizes nutrition, often has new clients cut out sugar, gluten, lactose and alcohol in the belief that they can trigger inflammation, stress out the body and impact sleep.
While Hansen emphasizes dietary issues, sleep coach Ronee Welch focuses more on lifestyle: Welch, the owner of Sleeptastic Solutions, is certified in insomnia-specific cognitive behavioral therapy, meaning she aims to change the bad habits of her clients, such as looking at their phones before bed and having an inconsistent sleep schedule.
April Gabriel-Ferretti, a Pennsylvania-based psychotherapist, says turning to Welch was a game-changer.

As part of their weekly hourlong sessions, the pair practiced relaxation techniques such as breathing exercises and making to-do lists. She says that having a sleep coach monitor her bedtime and hold her accountable was the key to her success.

It is not clear if drinking caffeinated, sugar-sweetened beverages causes people to sleep less or if it is the opposite, that sleep deprivation causes people to give in to cravings for the sugary drinks. But Aric A. Prather, PhD , of the University of California San Francisco, and colleagues noted that the findings suggest some connection between the intake of sugar-sweetened beverages and poor sleep.
