Sleep & Insomnia Therapist
Heather completed her MA in Mindfulness-based Core Process Psychotherapy from The Karuna Institute. She is currently working towards a PGDip in Sleep Science at the University of Oxford, and also holds a diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (BCPC).
Alongside her work as Sleep Therapist at The London Sleep Centre, Heather runs a private practice in Oxford, which is bound by the UKCP code of ethics and regularly supervised in line with requirements.
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?
Heather provides Corporate Sleep and Stress Reduction Programs; using an evidence based visual model that brings the benefits of therapy directly to people working in stressful environments. Her uniquely integrated approach uses a combination of workshops and 1:1 coaching.
In 2021 Heather will be publishing a book about sleep in the UK and USA.Back
