Whether you care for others as part of your occupation, or as an individual within a family or community setting, supporting others can be mentally and physically exhausting as well as having other factors that lead to a negative impact on your sleep.

Aging Well Through Healthy Sleep

Sleep Aged 50+

As we get older, sleep quantity and quality can be affected by hormonal changes, medical conditions and lifestyle shifts, leading us to think that we're needing less sleep but also feeling tired a lot of the time.

Sleep and Neurodiversity

Sleep with ADHD

People with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often experience sleep problems, which can significantly impact their overall well-being. 

Recognizing the links between ADHD and sleep disturbances can be crucial for better life management and overall health.  This workshop looks at these links and will focus on implementing manageable solutions for healthy sleep habits.

NIghtmares and 'Bad Dreams'


While nightmares can be distressing, they are a natural part of our sleep cycle in the course of memory integration and emotional processing. 

You are not alone in experiencing these unpleasant effects of night-time mental processing, and there are strategies to improve your sleep quality that can help reduce the frequency of nightmares.

Loss, Grief and Bereavement

Sleep after Bereavement

Grief and loss is an experience that affects everyone.  Sleep disturbances are common after the loss of a loved one or even the loss of a life situation such as losing your job, becoming ill or the end of a relationship.  

Grief is a deeply personal experience, and everyone copes differently.   This workshop helps us to understand the impact of loss and provides strategies to support the rest and good sleep that is vital for processing and healing. 

Non-medical Approach

Natural Sleep Solutions

It is often thought that medications - 'sleeping pills' - are the only route to relief from sleep problems.  

There are many, many non-medical and 'natural' interventions that you can try to improve your sleep quality and/or quantity.   This workshop looks at a plethora of possible solutions, and takes into consideration your personality, lifestyle and personal goals to find the right techniques for you. 

Considerations for Men and Sleep

Men's Sleep Health

There are biological and physiological differences between the sexes regarding sleep, including gender-specific  sleep-related health conditions as well as the challenges that men face in discussing health issues.  

Addressing sleep-related challenges requires a holistic approach, considering the individual's lifestyle, workplace dynamics and life goals.  In doing this we can work out how to prioritise sleep with least effort and impact, and implement strategies for optimum mental and wellbeing.  

R&R Techniques

Rest - The Route To Sleep

Quality rest and relaxation plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy sleep patterns.  Modern lifestyle tends to view R&R as non-productive - a waste of time - but it is the opposite of this!

Engaging in daily, constructive rest techniques sets the tone and prep for a good night's sleep, contributing to our overall health and wellbeing.

Sleep-supportive Body Movement

Movement for Sleep

Moving the body and regular exercise can significantly and beneficially impact your sleep quality.

Shift Workers

Shift Work Sleep Support

The impact of shift work is vast, affecting both physical and mental health and imposing an increased likelihood of errors and accidents.
