I’m a Sleep Expert, creator of Sleep Well programmes that guide you to work well and live well within 5 weeks, without medication.
I set up my first wellbeing consultancy over 15 years ago facilitating stress management and resilience events for leaders and teams in businesses as diverse as Universities and world famous film studios. In my many conversations with people of all ages and occupations, I became increasingly fascinated by sleep.
How come what is "supposed" to come naturally was causing so many people such trouble?
I knew our busy lives had a lot to do with it so I started running community based classes teaching people how to relax into sleep rather than struggle with it. I loved the work and loved the brilliant results even more! But I also met people for whom just thinking about sleep made them very anxious. Bed time really had become dread time.
I needed more tools to give them so I trained in CBTi - a form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy specially adapted for insomnia. It's the treatment recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). I combine this approach with the many other practical strategies I’ve developed with great success over the years.
The result? My comprehensive, science-based Programmes that teach you the skills and mindset to regain refreshing sleep, within 5 weeks and without the need for medication.
These days sleep is at last gaining recognition as the third pillar of wellbeing along with diet and exercise. It really is the foundation for your health, happiness and success.
Sleep is seemingly a simple thing with the power to transform your life and work. Yet it eludes so many people.
If you’ve had night after night of broken sleep then it’s easy to think this is just how it is. You accept it. You adapt and push on. You do a pretty good job at coping. Research however shows that people who sleep poorly overestimate their performance. Even though you know that lack of sleep is affecting your life and work, you might not realise the full extent. Those around you probably see it differently.
Enough now! It’s time to wake up to the fact that you’re not sleeping well. Let me help. I'd love to support you get your sleep - and your life - back on track.
The results I get show that there's no need to struggle with sleep - everyone can learn how to dramatically improve their sleep.
After all, everything is so much easier after a good night's sleep.See All Our Experts
