The Sleepyhead Clinic is run by Sleep Physiologist Stephanie Romiszewski.
Stephanie combines an expert and excellent scientific knowledge base with a reputation for her empathetic, effective approach to helping people incorporate sleep treatment into their everyday lives. She is highly skilled at turning complex sleep medicine into easy to understand strategies and techniques that her clients can resonate with and follow with ease. She is highly trusted and has a real passion for fixing troubled sleepers in order to get to their ultimate goal – to feel awake and happy (and of course sleepy at the right times!). Stephanie believes that it is her clients that make her better and better at what she does – each client is an individual and has different needs, and this helps to develop her sleep programs to suit everybody.
Holding a BSc Hons degree in Psychology and an MSc degree in Behavioural Sleep Medicine, her interest in this field started whilst studying Chronobiology, during which time she worked and conducted sleep research at Harvard Medical School.
Stephanie has worked in NHS clinical sleep disorder centres in London and Exeter, diagnosing and treating a wide range of sleep issues such as sleep apnoea, narcolepsy, parasomnias, insomnia, movement disorders and circadian rhythm disorders. She has also set up sleep services and runs training courses for other medical professionals.
Thank you for your help in improving my sleep. The method taught was systematic with measurable outcomes which has allowed me to see improvements. Your enthusiasm towards the subject was eminent at our first meeting and made the whole experience enjoyable.
Keeping abreast of the latest research in the treatment of insomnia and related sleep disorders, she attends and speaks at numerous sleep conferences, and has completed several accredited courses, including the Edinburgh Sleep Course, the International Sleep Medicine Course and the Sleep Technology Education Program run by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
Stephanie has appeared in Channel 4’s ‘Secrets of Sleep’ series with 7wonder productions where she used her expertise to treat the contributors, and disseminate sleep knowledge to the public in just the same way as she does her own clients.
She is a member of the British Sleep Society, the European Society of Sleep Technologists and the Association for Respiratory Technology and Physiology.
