Sleep Psychologists

As highly trained clinical mental health professionals, sleep psychologists typically specialise in diagnosing and treating the presence of sleep disorders that are caused by underlying behavioral or psychological problems.


Sleep psychologists seek to investigate the psychological root of the disorder that is interfering with a client’s sleep, such as bullying, divorce, death of a loved one, or another major life transition. In most cases, sleep psychologists are given the responsibility of finding intervention methods to address abnormal sleep patterns through a cognitive behavioral therapy approach.


Due to their daily duties, it is common for sleep psychologists to work closely with pulmonologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and other psychologists to treat all psychological concerns that are co-occurring with sleep disorders.
