Experts of every kind are queueing up to warn us that lack of sleep, or the wrong kind, will bring down a bewildering array of dire consequences.

Heather Darwall-Smith's message in this book is simple: don't panic!

Humans are biologically programmed to sleep, and by interrogating all the factors - sociological, physiological, neurological, and psychological - that might be impeding this innate instinct, each of us can work out the changes we can make in our own lifestyles to allow ourselves to sleep naturally again.

Understand and transform your sleep habits, one night at a time.

Heather left behind a career in the design industry to become a qualified psychotherapist. With an MA in Mindfulness-based Core Process Psychotherapy from Middlesex University, she is now working towards a PGDip in Sleep Science at the University of Oxford. Heather also has a diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC), and is the founder of What is Stress? – a stress management programme that combines workshops and one-to-one coaching. Alongside her work as Sleep Therapist at The London Sleep Centre, Heather runs a private practice in Oxford.

Heather specialises in issues such as trauma, addiction and PTSD and particularly how they can present as challenges to sleep. This work directly supports her ongoing research into insomnia and other sleep conditions. Heather believes that the path to wellbeing lies in a good night’s sleep. An important part of her ongoing clinical research addresses the cyclical question; what comes first, poor sleep or poor mental health?
