About the webinar

1 in 4 people in the UK suffer with a sleeping disorder. That’s a shocking statistic but the reality is, many of us suffer in silence, accepting poor quality sleep as a fact of life.

This webinar draws on the latest research in neuroscience to explain what sleep is and why getting the right quality and quantity of it, is so important.

We look at sleep cycles and the different sleep stages, identify different sleep disorders, and look at how our sleep needs change at different stages of our lives. We’ll also share a range of solutions for those who struggle to sleep well.
