Scientific research into sleep has dramatically increased during the past decade, with greater understanding of the hormonal and brain activity during sleep which has a key influence on your health and wellbeing.

It examines common myths and stereotypes which may damage your chances of sleeping well, and gives tips for dealing with your sleep problems effectively. Topics include:
How much sleep you really need
Sleep quality and quantity
Underlying issues, such as stressful life events, depression and anxiety
Physical clinical problems, such as snoring, sleep apnea and asthma
Perpetuating factors of sleep issues such as habits, perceptions, attributions, beliefs and thoughts
Insomnia - wired and tired
Psychoeducation to help with sleep problems, with a focus on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or ACT; CBT-I, along with stimulus control, sleep/bed restriction therapy, worry time, and paradoxical intention
Sleep hygiene, such as de-cluttering, eating, regular behaviours, exercise.
