About Us

At Sleep Matters, we are a team of psychologists (Jeffery & Ree Clinical Psychologists) with particular interest and experience in helping people to manage sleep problems, particularly insomnia.

People are sometimes surprised to be referred to a psychologist for their poor sleep, as it is not well known that the recommended treatment for insomnia, CBT-I, is a speciality of psychology.

We have helped 1000s of people with long term sleep problems, including those who have been dependent on sleeping medication for a long time. We also provide general psychology services which means that symptoms of stress, anxiety, and low mood can also be addressed if required.
