Meet Dr Kat
Sleep therapist who is passionate about helping women feel good
I’m a sleep scientist and body clock expert. For me these are the most fascinating topics. That’s because sleep and circadian rhythms are fundamental to everyone’s health and wellbeing; no one can do without them. In other words, everyone needs sleep and pay to attention to their rhythmic biology.
And yet, many of us struggle with their sleep. As a woman you are more likely to experience sleep problems than a man. There are many reasons for this. As a female sleep therapist I empathise deeply with women who find it difficult to sleep as well as they would like. As a sleep scientist I also understand female biology and what supports women to sleep well.
And that’s why I have chosen to put my focus on helping women understand their own sleep experience, take steps to sleeping well and feeling good.
I believe in a mind-body (holistic), non-drug approach to insomnia and sleep problems. I believe in science and evidence-based approaches. Hence, I combine proven sleep science with mindfulness and acceptance- and compassion-based therapies to improve the quality of your sleep.
Sleep is the most exquisite invention
Heinrich Heine said the above and he is right. As a child I realised how important and personal sleep is. And as a child I experienced the rhythmic change of the seasons. But it was only as a young adult that I became fully aware of the daily rhythm within us – how every psycho-physiological function in our body is rhythmic too. And, sadly, what can go wrong if we don’t get the sleep and rhythmicity we need.
My curiosity was sparked! I decided to learn more, first studying biological sciences, then sleep & body clock science, after which I trained across different therapeutic methodologies.
Fast forward several years and many credentials and a book later, and I have helped hundreds of people sleep well. I have turned my fascination into a passion and yes, into a career I love. Helping women sleep naturally.
