Dr Gabriella Romano BA MSc PsychD
Founder and Director of Sleep Psychologist
Welcome to Sleep Psychologist.
I am a qualified and HCPC registered psychologist with extensive experience of supporting adults with chronic insomnia, individually or in groups. I work part-time for the largest insomnia service in the UK which is based at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine (UCLH). I have received high quality training from leading experts in the field of sleep research and clinical practice.
I offer specialist assessment, formulation and CBTI intervention. I also deliver consultation, supervision and training remotely or in person. I have delivered up to 80 sessions across charities, high profile organisations and academic institutions across the UK and beyond.
My approach is informed and guided by strict clinical guidelines and a stepped care model.
Models I am influenced by include CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Narrative, Systemic Family Therapy, Somatic Experiencing
and Polyvagal Theory.
Insomnia is one of the most common sleep disorders.
I offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) which is the gold standard treatment for chronic insomnia with a 70-80% success rate.
Research has shown that CBTI can help with...
Less time falling asleep.
Refreshed and less irritable
Improving sleep quality. Staying asleep
Performance and Motivation
Less fatigue, more energy; increased pain tolerance
No more sleeping pills
