We have handpicked experts from different fields who have passion to help people struggling with sleep. Sensitive sleepers have various causes for poor sleep, and for this reason our ways to heal differ as well. Experts have different approaches and skills. Healing won’t begin until we take actions and start testing what works for us. Keeping a sleep diary for couple of weeks could clarify the reasons for poor sleep.
Note: Most of the experts listed here are from London/South England area, but we will extend the list on-goingly and welcome all relevant experts to send information to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Sleep School
The Sleep School’s approach is centred on what good sleepers do to sleep, which is nothing more than trusting their body’s natural ability to sleep. We help clients to understand that their natural desire to want to ‘do’ things to get to sleep may well satisfy an internal desire ‘to fix’ but it could only be pushing sleep further away. Our approach teaches clients to not let the ‘controlling side’ in all of us get in the way of this natural process and how to make space for, or even play with, any fears associated with not sleeping, something that allows sleep to emerge naturally once more. More about founder doctor Guy Meadows and the Sleep School in here.
Dr Nerina Ramlakhan
Dr Nerina Ramlakhan is a sleep and energy coach. She is one of the leading sleep therapists in the UK and works with corporate clients as well as being a sleep therapist at Capio Nightingale Hospital in London. She believes that the essence is not 8 hours of sleep every night but quality restorative sleep which is accessible through practical steps. She is the author of the book Tired But Wired, the essential sleep toolkit – how to overcome your sleep problems. More about dr Nerina Ramlakhan in here.
Yoga in Mind – Yoga for Better Sleep
Since I can remember I was always interested in how to be healthy in my body and in my mind and how to feel relaxed and energized at the same time. I thought that I have to do more to feel like I was enough. Not until I did restorative classes followed by training with Judith Lasater. Restorative Yoga gave me space and support to explore the different aspects of myself and rediscover my fullness and my depth. I am based in North West London and I am currently teaching 121 sessions throughout London. More about Elzbieta’s restorative and sleep better yoga in here.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) techniques have been shown in numerous clinical trials to help overcome even long term insomnia. Sleepio founder Professor Colin Espie explains CBT for Insomnia trains people to use techniques that address the mental (or cognitive) factors associated with insomnia, such as the ‘racing mind’, and to overcome the worry and other negative emotions that accompany the experience of being unable to sleep. Sleepio has also online courses, starting from £6.99 / week. More about Sleepio in here.
