Endorsements for Sleep Easy

“Currently, this book is the most comprehensive self-help book on insomnia in the market. I would highly recommend it not just to patients, but also to primary care clinicians, nurses, and even other sleep specialists.”

 Sleep Easy Foreword by Dr Tony Fernando, Psychiatrist/Sleep & Insomnia Specialist, Auckland.

“Bernice’s book is easy to read and provides practical, evidence-based strategies for improving your sleep. Her personal experience overcoming insomnia allows her to present information about sleep in a way that everyone can identify with and relate to. Sleep Easy provides a helpful guide to moving forward in a positive way learning practical strategies to better sleep.”

 – Dr David Cunnington, Director, Melbourne Sleep Disorders Centre, Australia.

“Sleep Easy is a valuable book aimed at the growing number of people who are suffering from this tsunami of sleep difficulties. This is a well-researched and practical guide that will be helpful for individuals and health professionals who see people with insomnia every day.”

- Dr Alex Bartle, Director, Sleep Well Clinics, New Zealand.


“One of the main strengths of Sleep Easy is that the community will have access to an accurate, heartfelt, sensible and sensitive self-help book written by someone who has a lived experience of the hell that insomnia can be. Not sleeping well for weeks, months or years on end can be extremely debilitating, and it’s often an isolating and lonely experience for the sufferer. In the absence of obvious health markers of debilitation, such as crutches, bandages or a neck brace, people with insomnia often have no markers of their struggle - in fact, people can often look quite well. Bernice’s accurate and poignant portrayal of this often silent personal suffering will resonate with readers who have shared that journey. It’s enormously valuable that this book depicts not just a clinical or academic perspective on insomnia (although it does show due respect to the evidence and research) but also a personal tale of reckoning and triumph.”

- Sleep Easy foreword by Dr Moira Junge, Health Psychologist and sleep specialist, Melbourne.

“This programme offered me some very powerful tools to get my sleep back on track. I kept a sleep diary and, from that starting point, I was able to gain an understanding of my sleeping behaviours and my low sleep-efficiency percentage. Several contributing factors were identified, and I learned about and implemented techniques that worked. I am amazed and delighted that, from this programme, my sleep has improved so much that I feel I am completely transformed. It’s hard to express exactly how getting a good night’s sleep can make you feel like a new person. I now go to sleep easily, have healthy and deep sleep, and I wake up happy. What more could I ask for? I am happy again. It’s so worth investing in your sleep. Life is not just good, it’s fantastic.”

- Donna , 44, Auckland

“This book has the potential to help so many people who are struggling with sleep difficulties. It’s an easy-to-read blend of personal experience and proven evidence-based strategies for people to try at home. If you struggle with sleep, give this widely and well-researched book a try.”

– Dr Bronwyn Sweeney, Clinical Psychologist and Sleep Researcher, New Zealand.
