Daniel BonnarInsomnia & sleep disorder treatment Perth

I'm a clinical psychologist and Masters graduate of the world-class insomnia research group at Flinders University, South Australia. My training was completed under the guidance of Associate Professor Michael Gradisar and Professor Leon Lack, two of Australia’s leading psychological sleep researchers. I build an excellent rapport quickly with young children through to older adults.

I work with clients of all ages, from infancy through to older adults, across a range of presenting sleep issues. These include:

  • Insomnia
  • Circadian rhythm disorders (extreme night owls and early birds)
  • Imagery re-scripting for recurrent nightmares
  • Athlete specific sleep enhancement strategies
  • Assistance with other difficulties impacting sleep (e.g. depression, stress, and anxiety)​

​I am an active researcher and have published several studies in international journals. A recent paper describes a novel school-based intervention for adolescent sleep difficulty. A particular area of current research interest is in the area of elite athletes and sleep, specifically around how athletes can enhance performance and recovery outcomes by improving their sleep. I've recently had a review paper published on the subject. I pride myself on always using evidenced-based treatment methods in therapy and is most heavily guided by Cognitive Behaviour Therapy principles. My commitment to research keeps me up to date with the literature so that clients always receive the most well supported treatments.
