Trouble Sleeping has been busy…

So far this year, I have been very busy at Trouble Sleeping … In February I (Dr Lindsay Browning) was announced as the Sleep Ambassador for the UK bed company And So To Bed. I have been working with them to promote good sleep habits and so far I have written two articles: one about sleep when you share your bed with another person https://www.andsotobed.co.uk/blog/new-blog-posts/sleep-with-another-person and one about general sleep hygiene tips https://www.andsotobed.co.uk/blog/new-blog-posts/sleep-hygiene-tips.

In March I was asked to speak at the annual Sleep Show in London about worry and insomnia.

My talk was live-streamed on my Facebook page, so check it out at www.facebook.com/drbrowningsleep if you would like to watch a replay. I also had a stand at the show and was able to speak to hundreds of people about their sleeping issues.

In addition, in March and April I have given talks for Victoria’s Promise about sleep in cancer, talks to the Avon and Somerset Police Department about sleep and shift work and to members of the depression support group, Depression XPression. I have also been on Radio Woking and interviewed for a Sleep Junkie’s podcast about CBT-I.

Getting a good night’s sleep:

Getting a good night’s sleep (ideally between 7-9 hours for a healthy adult) is one of the most effective single things you can do to boost your mental and physical health…

“But I am just a poor sleeper. There is nothing I can do about it.”

Wrong!

Welcome to the new Trouble Sleeping website

Welcome to the new Trouble Sleeping website.

I am Dr Lindsay Browning and I received my Doctorate in insomnia from The University of Oxford where I studied how worry and rumination affect sleep. I set up Trouble Sleeping in 2006 to help people overcome these issues as well as other sleeping problems.

As a mother, I have used my expertise to help my own children when they have had trouble sleeping – as everyone experiences from time to time. The real problems arise when a period of poor sleep (such as following an illness, work or exam stress, a bereavement, etc.) becomes permanent.

Whilst I was living in Singapore and America, where I taught Anatomy and Physiology at University, I have seen how insomnia is an issue that affects everyone across the world – men, women and children from all walks of life. It is an issue that many people think that they just have to live with. But you do not.

I offer a service here where you can get expert tailored advice specific to your particular sleeping difficulties, for both adults and children. Also, corporate advice is offered too.

In addition, I hope that this website can become a forum for information and news about sleep for anyone interested in sleep.
