BSc MSc (Oxon) CPsychol AFBPsS
I am Dr Lindsay Browning, a chartered psychologist, neuroscientist, author and sleep expert. I am passionate about helping people to improve their sleep, since sleep is vital for so many aspects of our health and wellbeing. When you don’t get enough sleep and feel tired you won’t be the best version of you.
I founded Trouble Sleeping in 2006 to help people improve their sleep and wellbeing though sleep therapy and advice based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) – the gold standard treatment for insomnia. As well has helping individuals with their insomnia, I also offer corporate talks and workshops as a keynote speaker and provide consultancy to schools and organisations such as the NHS, police and utility companies to advise on shift work patterns and management. I am also the resident sleep ambassador for And So To Bed.
I have degrees in neuroscience and psychology and a doctorate from the University of Oxford where I investigated the relationship between worry and insomnia. When I received my doctorate I realised that there was a desperate need for help for people suffering from insomnia and founded Trouble Sleeping. I am passionate about helping people of all ages to sleep well. Nothing makes me happier than helping someone from a place of desperation about their sleep to a place of peace! The sleep consultancy advice I offer is based on my expertise in sleep, leveraging the principles of CBT-I and is a drug free intervention.
As a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, a member of the British Sleep Society (link) and a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (link) you can be reassured that I am a qualified and respected professional in the field. (add this bit when it’s true!! I have published several academic papers and an international best-selling self-help book: Navigating Sleeplessness.)
In addition to my academic and professional qualifications, I have a husband, two children and a beautiful goldendoodle – so I understand the reality of what it is like when you don’t get a good night’s sleep! I also understand that not one approach to helping you sleep better will fit everyone so I tailor my sleep solutions to fit you and your family.
Previously, I have lived in Singapore and then America with my family, but I am delighted to be back living in the UK after such an adventure around the world!
