About the Author

Kate Mikhail is a London-based freelance journalist and editor, who has written a wide range of features and reviews for the Guardian, Observer, Telegraph and Independent newspapers, as well as for many other publications. After decades of not being able to get to sleep easily at night, a chance reading of a book by her great-great uncle Richard Waters, a pioneer in cognitive therapy and clinical hypnosis in the 20th century, led to the discovery that she was officially a chronic insomniac. A love of research, science and a fascination in the mind-body loop, drove Kate to find scientific answers for why sleep can be such a problem for so many people in the 21st century, and what can be done to put this right. Kate is now an ex-chronic insomniac, thanks to researching her first book, Teach Yourself to Sleep, in which she explores the biology and science of sleep and how to look at sleep from a different perspective to improve the quality of sleep, health and wellbeing.


If you want an example of how one person's struggle can go on to help so many others, this book is it. Kate Mikhail's writing is a wonderful combination of personal experience and investigation into the science, knowledge and practice that will help readers navigate their way out of insomnia and towards getting a gorgeous night's sleep. If you or those you love are having difficulty sleeping, curl up with this book before bed and give yourself the gift of a sleep * Kirsty Macdonald, Cognitive Hypnotherapist and Transformational Leadership Coach *
