I am not medically qualified although I have spent all my adult life researching sleep, the contents of this website
are based on my research, my experience, my reading of the relevant scientific and popular literature on the
subject, a life-long interest in the subject of sleep and finally plain and simple common sense. The advice given is
in no way intended to replace medical opinion and I must stress that if you are in any way concerned about your
sleep, your child’s sleep or your partner’s sleep, then go and see your G.P.
