author of self-help book and programme Sleep Easy, who dreamed of a better solution for compromised sleep.
Sleep Haven New Zealand was founded by Bernice Tuffery,
As a previous sufferer, fed up with years of sleepless nights and band-aid remedies for sleep, she finally discovered the life-changing CBTi (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for insomnia) method and everything fell into place. In CBTi, Bernice found a tried and true natural approach for addressing the causes of ongoing sleep difficulties and the behavioural changes to solve them. After successfully implementing the programme, regaining her sleep and health, Bernice was determined to share this solution with all those who needed it.
Through her self-help book Sleep Easy at the heart of this programme, Bernice and her incredible team of coaches present a practical, six-week guide to help you take charge of your sleep, life, and health. The programme is paired with sleep tracking resources and the help of a supportive, understanding sleep coach, for regular check-ins and the accountability you need to make lasting changes for your sleep.
From self-guided course options to one-on-one, personalised sleep coaching, Sleep Haven provides you with a world of handy sleep therapy resources, and a proven method to achieve better sleep, naturally.
