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