Illawarra Sleep Psychology

Thirroul NSW 2515
Specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of sleeping problems in children, teens and adults.

I am passionate about improving sleep and well-being and I am committed to ongoing professional development. I am a registered psychologist with AHPRA (the national governing body) living and working in the Illawarra.

I am a University of Wollongong graduate and a member of the Australasian Sleep Association (ASA), the ASA's Chronobiology Council and Insomnia Special Interest Group. The ASA is the peak scientific body in Australia and New Zealand representing clinicians, scientists and researchers in the broad area of Sleep.

I am a full member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and a committee member for the Illawarra Branch.

Sleep psychologists specialise in diagnosing and treating sleep problems that are behaviourally and/or psychologically based. Sleeping difficulties are often connected to underlying problems such as stress, anxiety and depression.

Some sleep problems only last for a short time and may be related to an aspect of the individual’s life (fear of the dark, starting school, loss of a loved one, workplace stress, divorce, etc). Sometimes acute sleep problems develop into chronic problems, which can have long term effects on physical and psychological health.

A sleep psychologist can help people manage the thoughts, feelings and emotions that can interfere with a healthy night's sleep. Sleep can be one of the first things to be affected when an individual is worried about something or has a major life transition.

Research indicates that there is a large percentage of children in Australia who are in need of assistance with their sleep problems. Regardless of the issue, these children are likely to experience poor mood, behavioural problems and reduced academic performance. Fortunately, many sleep problems can be addressed with a few simple techniques. However, unlike other areas of a healthy lifestyle, such as diet and exercise, sleep education for parents is scarce. I aim to provide parents with the necessary information and practical tools to help their children improve their sleep health and general well-being.

I take an interdisciplinary approach and work closely with other medical professionals to address the concerns that can co-occur with sleep disorders. If sleep problems are suspected to be medically based (such as sleep apnoea) you will be referred to a medical specialist. I participate in multidisciplinary team meetings for individuals with sleep disorders in the Illawarra region.
