In this episode with specialist, Dr Alison Bentley we explored normal and disordered sleep, sleep apnoea, CPAP, the overlap between psychiatry and sleep as a specialty and how to teach your children to sleep without traumatising you or them! We talk about cannabis, alcohol and the controversial prescription hypnotics available. Dr Bentley is as knowledgable as she is easy to understand, sharing tools for improving your own sleep quality and debunking some of the myths around sleep that we have all been led to believe. You thought you needed 8 hours, but this is not true! I learned so much in this conversation and we both hope that it is helpful to you.
