Are you or your child not sleeping well?
We are here to help.
The Sleep Matters team is a team of health professionals who have specific training and experience in treating insomnia and related difficulties such as chronic nightmares, excessive daytime tiredness, adjusting to CPAP, and circadian rhythm disruptions.
We are Perth's only dedicated Behavioural Sleep Medicine Service, providing in-clinic consults for the Perth community, and telehealth treatment Australia-wide.
Often, sleep disturbance is driven by one or more of these 3 problems
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.
