ABOUT US

Ms Dianne Richards

From www.sleepandbreathing.com.au, Ms Dianne Richards is a Health Psychologist specialising in the treatment of insomnia and other disorders of sleep and anxiety. Dianne uses an evidence based, cognitive behavioural therapy approach (known as CBTi) that trains people to use techniques that address the mental (or cognitive) factors associated with insomnia. These are usually a racing mind, worry or other negative emotions like fear of not being able to get to sleep, stay asleep and fear about the consequences for the following day.

Individuals often adjust their behaviour in an effort to promote sleep that can ultimately be unhelpful, so making behavioural changes may be necessary. Importantly, CBTi is a brief but successful therapy with a psycho-educational component giving you the tools to successfully manage your sleep into the future.


Ms Dianne Richards is available for consultations at the Sleep and Breathing Specialist Centre. Consultations are by appointment. A written referral letter from your general practitioner or psychiatrist is required. To make an appointment or for further information, The Sleep and Breathing Specialist Centre.

If you never get to the cause of the problem then the problem will continue or possibly get worse. Recognising sleep disorders can actually be quite difficult as people will rarely discuss their sleep problems with their dentist. However, because our patients visit us two or three times a year a dentist is well placed to recognize the early signs of sleep problems.
