Hello, I am Dr Louise Baker-Martins, a Chartered Clinical Psychologist providing therapeutic and educational sleep services to promote mental health and well-being. I am passionate about helping people to experience the restorative benefits of good sleep for the mind and body.

When people struggle with poor sleep or insomnia this impacts mood, cognition and behaviour. In turn, quality of life, relationships and work performance are affected. Through a comprehensive assessment process, my role is to make sense of clients’ unique experiences and to provide evidence-based interventions tailored to individual needs.

My approach is shaped from both a research PhD in this field and clinical experience across NHS services. I work in a collaborative and compassionate way, which may involve Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy for Insomnia and Compassion-Focussed Therapy.

I work with individuals where poor sleep is the primary problem, and where there are co-existing mental and physical health struggles. In alignment, the mind and body will naturally co-create the ‘sleep sweet-spot’, without effort or intention.

I offer in-person appointments in south-east Wiltshire and online.
