The Sleepyhead Clinic is run by Expert Sleep Physiologist Stephanie Romiszewski.
Stephanie combines an excellent scientific knowledge base with a reputation for her empathetic approach to helping people incorporate sleep treatment into their everyday lives, all over the world! She is highly skilled at turning complex sleep medicine into easy to understand strategies. Her clients resonate with her techniques and follow them 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 energised and happy (and sleep of course!). Stephanie believes that it is her clients that make her 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 assisted sleep research at Harvard Medical School.
Stephanie has worked in NHS clinical sleep disorder centres across the UK, 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 ran training courses for other medical professionals. Currently as well as the Sleepyhead Clinic she is running NHS sleep clinics and works closely to develop innovative sleep practices with Professor Adam Zeman.
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.
