Sleep is the most fundamental pillar of lifestyle medicine and one that supports your whole health.

What kind of relationship do you have with sleep?  Fiona teaches a compassion-based approach to sleep wellness. 

Even, if you consider yourself a ‘good sleeper,’ now it is time to become a great one! 

Whatever sleep challenges you have, Fiona Brennan’s unique approach will help you to develop faith in your best-slept self. 

Are you tired of restless nights and yearning for a rejuvenating sleep experience? 

Did you know that 80% of Irish people are sleep-deprived? If this is the case for you, take some solace that you are not alone. 

The Sleep-Well Formula is one of the key learnings from Fiona’s forthcoming and highly anticipated new book:

‘Sleep Well

8 Habits to Help You Get to Sleep, Stay Asleep and Wake Up Refreshed’

“Sleep Well is a wonderfully practical, easy-to-read book that will immediately improve your sleep length and quality. A scientifically grounded masterpiece.”

Dr. Robert Kelly

Consultant Cardiologist & Lifestyle Medicine Physician

The Sleep-Well Formula will improve your sleep regardless of any particular sleep challenges you may have from mild to chronic. There is so much that YOU can do to take control of poor sleep. 

Some of the most common challenges are: 

  • Somnophobia – anxiety around going to and staying asleep 
  • An over-active mind that you find hard to switch off
  • Parenting young children that wake you up 
  • Menopausal hot sweats 
  • Chronic pain that disturbs your sleep  
  • A partner that snores 
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Sleep apnoea 
  • Stress
  • Life changes – for example, a new job

The carefully curated timetable ensures that every activity is designed to enhance your understanding and connection with restful sleep.
