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.
