Bernice Tuffery – Sleep Health Advocate, & Sleep Coach

Hi, I’m Bernice, Sleep Haven’s founder and author of the self-help book, Sleep Easy. 


As a previous sufferer, fed up with years of sleepless nights and band-aid remedies for sleep, I finally discovered the life-changing CBTi (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for insomnia) method and everything fell into place. In CBTi, I 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 my sleep and health, I was determined to share this solution with all those who needed it. 


Through my self-help book ‘Sleep Easy’, or personalised sleep coaching, I provide an evidence-based guide to help you take charge of your sleep, life, and health. The sleep improvement 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. 


A member of the World Sleep Society, with a certification in CBTi and coaching, I bring a combination of knowledge and lived experience to my role, as well as the passion to share what I’ve learned with others.

I live in the Waikato with my family, where I enjoy growing my own produce, encouraging my daughter’s love of horses, and writing on the side. 

From the self-guided course option, one-on-one personalised sleep coaching, and sleep workshops, Sleep Haven provides you with a world of handy sleep therapy resources, and a proven method to achieve better sleep, naturally.

Bernice helped me realise how important sleep is, and how with greater awareness and new habits, we can completely change the quality of our sleep.
