Dr Bronwyn Sweeney, a sleep researcher at Massey University’s Sleep/Wake Research Centre, will provide an brief overview of normal sleep before explaining what insomnia is, the types of insomia, who is most likely to suffer from it, and what treatment is available.
A registered clinical psychologist and infertility counsellor, Bronwyn is somewhat of a sleep evangelist and enjoys opportunities to share sleep knowledge with others, especially since few of us receive sleep education growing up. Her doctoral research investigated sleep changes in late pregnancy and the relationship to maternal mental health in a sample of over 1100 Kiwi women. Clinically, one of her special interests is treating adults affected by chronic insomnia. Outside of these roles, Bronwyn always has knitting on the go, active wear at the ready, cherishes sleep and relishes time with family which includes multiple dogs and a diva cat.
