A good quality night's sleep is an essential component of maintaining good mental health. It is surprising that over the years the amount of sleep that an individual is getting per night has been recorded in the populations across different countries has gradually declined.
With his years of Psychiatry experience, Dr. Raman Sakhuja has observed that over a third of patients attending Mental Health Outpatient clinics have a problem with sleep and up to half of the inpatients would be on Hypnotic medication. There are no dedicated services in the Mental Health settings in Wales that are designed to assess, diagnose sleep disorders or sleep-related difficulties and manage them on an individual basis.
With his special interest in Neuropsychiatry, Dr. Raman Sakhuja, the leading sleeping disorder specialist in Wales, offers a comprehensive assessment of sleep difficulties that includes the use of clinical information along with validated clinical tools that provide information on the quality as well as the quantity of sleep.
The uniqueness of adult sleep disorder treatment in Wales includes the addition of Actigraphy to the whole sleep assessment process. Following that, a comprehensive, multi-modal package of sleep care can be put in place. This includes the use of cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia as well as necessary pharmacological interventions tailored to the individual's needs, along with optimization of treatments for any comorbid conditions such as anxiety, mood disorders, ADHD, or substance misuse disorders.
