I'm a psychologist, therapist and coach. I've built my career around sharing information that helps people sort out the things that trouble them.

There's always something you do if you have the right information and the right guidance. So I provide personal and professional training that will help you get a better handle on yourself, a relationship, and life in general.

My strapline "Life doesn't have to be like that" comes from the idea that – given the right information and a bit of encouragement – we can fix a lot of life's irritants ourselves.

My courses always include plenty of practical advice that you can apply right away. I use a solution-focused, problem-solving approach because I want everything I deliver to be useful, practi...

Overview

The Sleep Well Plan is an online course to help you beat insomnia and restore natural, healthy sleep.

How did you sleep last night? How do you normally sleep? Was last night’s slumber better than usual, not as good as usual… worse? This course will show you how to beat insomnia. It will also tell you how to stop the worry and stress that aggravates sleeplessness.

With the right guidance, you can beat insomnia. It doesn't take much to upset out sleep patterns, but equally, it doesn't take much to restore healthy sleep, if you know how. One of the problems is that modern lifestyles often mean that the habits of self-care and attention to our needs are easily pushed aside by things that seem more urgent.

We now sleep, on average, 20 per cent less than we did a century ago. Back then we were more likely to sleep and wake in time with the natural rhythms of day and night. Researcher Stanley Coren has shown that a reduction of just 10 per cent can lead to sleep deprivation and impact on how we think and behave.

The sleep statistics worldwide are surprising: One-third of us suffer from deprived sleep and a quarter of us feel sleepy in the daytime as a result. Some have difficulty getting to sleep, others wake frequently or sleep so lightly that they are under the impression that they barely sleep at all.

You may be one of them. If you are, how do you feel about that? Probably, not too happy! But just as lifestyle issues can contribute to poor sleep, so small changes to your lifestyle and habits can help restore quality sleep—and here's an added bonus—improve your general outlook and sense of wellbeing as well.

Small change, big results!

You see, losing sleep is bad enough, but feeling bad about it just makes things worse. The stress and worry about how loss of sleep will affect you the following day is enough to keep anyone awake at night. And how you feel about your sleep affects not only how you feel the next day, it can also begin to predict how you’ll sleep on nights to come.

Signs this course may help you:

• You suffer from insomnia
• You want to wake feeling energised
• You suffer from depression and/or anxiety
• Your sleep patterns are irregular
• Your busy mind keeps you awake
• Your sleep is disrupted for any reason (e.g. shiftwork)
• You want a natural way to improve your sleep

This course will show you how to break the cycle of disrupted sleep and beat insomnia. However badly you think you sleep, you can start to feel immediate benefits by following the guidance here. You can improve the quantity AND the quality of your sleep. If you are not satisfied within 30 days of purchase you can get your money back. That's a promise you can sleep on.

Who is This Course for?

You are not only losing sleep, but also feeling bad about it which is making things worse. The Sleep Well Plan will help you identify the common reasons causing insomnia and give you tips to mitigate factors inhibiting good sleep.

You want to improve your sleep quality. Often, the stress and worry about how loss of sleep will affect you the following day is enough to keep anyone awake at night. And how you feel about your sleep affects not only how you feel the next day, it can also begin to predict how you’ll sleep on nights to come.

Your sleep patterns are irregular. It may be because of shiftwork or a new baby in the house, or perhaps you just don't feel tired before 2:00am! Whatever the reason, you'll learn the importance of timing and how to establish a regular bedtime routine so that you enjoy more restful sleep.

You want to help others to improve their sleep. You might be a parent, coach, therapist, HR professional, or simply a good friend concerned about someone else's lack of sleep. The course provides guidance, advice and reading for you to pass on.

The Sleep Well Plan will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to improve your sleep and overall wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions

I often sleep poorly during the week, and I reassure myself with the thought that I'll get some extra sleep at the weekend. Is this OK?

Studies show that sleeping in at the weekend does not reverse the damage of sleep loss. It also disrupts sleep regularity which is important for quality sleep. Attend to what's interfering with your sleep during the week and you won't need to catch up at weekends. The course explains this more fully.

Does a 'nightcap' (or two) before bed help improve sleep?

Alcohol may reduce the amount of time required for you to fall asleep but it has a negative effect on the quality of your sleep. One drink before bed may not significantly affect sleep quality or duration. However, the more you drink, the worse the effects on your sleep. This is covered in the course.

Can prescription medication interfere with my sleep?

Doctors prescribe medications with the best intentions, but many common medications can interfere with sleep as a side effect. Certain over-the-counter ones can, too.

Should I use an alarm clock to wake up from sleep in the morning? I've been told it's not a good idea but I can't manage without it.

It may seem counter-intuitive, but using an alarm actually promotes unhealthy sleep habits. Follow sleep hygiene guidelines in this course to establish your sleep/wake routine. When you are getting enough sleep you'll wake naturally. The lesson on sleep routines covers this.

(Keep it or not?) Will I receive a course completion certificate?

Yes. On completion of the course, you can request a certificate confirming that you have completed 2.5 hours of training, for your professional development record.

What if I'm unhappy with the course?

We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
