About Michelle Ni Raghallaig

Dr Michelle Ni Raghallaigh has been trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBTI), the gold standard of insomnia treatment, by some of the leading experts in Behavioural Sleep Medicine, including Professor Jason Ellis (of Northumbria University), and Dr. Hugh Selsick at The Insomnia Service, University College London Hospitals (UCLH) NHS Trust.

Following her Science degree (specialising in Physiology) and Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychology at Trinity College Dublin, she has worked for over a decade as a research scientist (specialising in cognitive neuroscience and EEG) and psychologist at University College London, running UK-wide research trials looking at the impact of different disorders on brain and cognitive development (published author of 11 international peer-reviewed papers).

This patient-facing, patient-focused research has included work with children born blind and visually impaired. It was these patients’ striking problems with their sleep (and the impact sleep loss had not only on the children but the parents too) that first prompted her interest in sleep as a specialty. She is a member of The British Sleep Society and The British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). She has provided media interviews on sleep for the BBC.

Michelle has a warm, empathetic and informative approach that make her ‘life-changing’ sessions engaging, collaborative and enjoyable.
