Hi! I’m Alina.
I support people on their journey to effortless sleep.
As someone who’s gone through insomnia’s vicious cycle, I know one thing: insomnia sucks. It seems to take over our lives and make sleep our number one priority. We think about sleep, worry about it, try our best to solve this issue only to find ourselves even more stuck with our thoughts and fears… still sleepless.
When I speak of insomnia I speak about sleep anxiety, fear of sleeplessness and fear of wakefulness. I see insomnia as a way we think, feel and act around sleep. In other words, our relationship with sleep and wakefulness creates a self-perpetuating pattern of insomnia. And when we unlearn that pattern, we feel more at peace…and that’s when we see sleep coming.
It’s not a quick-fix, it’s a bumpy journey, but it’s totally worth it.
How I can support you
I publish a lot of free content where I share my best insights, learnings and personal experience with insomnia.
You can check out my blog, Newsletter, YouTube channel, and Instagram page – to become familiar with the things I talk about. Many people benefit from these resources alone.
For those who need extra support, encouragement, or simply someone to talk to – I occasionally do coaching sessions.

This can be useful if:
✅ You got stuck in the loop of poor sleep. The more you try to sleep, the less sleep you get. It’s difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep, or both – even if circumstance allows.
✅ You feel anxious around sleep: being afraid that you won’t sleep tonight or will wake up too early; worrying how insomnia might affect your health and life; changing your lifestyle because of insomnia.
✅ You tried every remedy under the sun and nothing worked consistently.
✅ You already understand that anxiety and hyperarousal drive insomnia and you look for ways how to approach this.
✅ If you’ve started sleeping better, but hit a rough patch and seem to get stuck.
You won’t find here:
❌ Quick-fix solutions, hacks, or tricks to make sleep happen. No herbal recipes, special routines, affirmations, exercises, etc – insomnia is mainly the problem of hyperarousal and fear. Without working with our thoughts, emotions, and feelings we can’t resolve the issue.
❌ Recommendations of sleep products like sleeping masks, supplements, apps, etc. I don’t partner with any companies that offer quick-fix solutions.
❌ Tips to optimize sleep if you don’t have any sleep troubles in the first place. This website won’t be useful for those who are interested in “bio-hacking” their sleep.
