Dr Nerina Ramlakhan

Physiologist, Sleep Expert, Author & Speaker





Dr. Nerina Ramlakhan is a physiologist who has specialised in maximising individual and organisational performance for over two decades. In today’s fast-paced world, filled with technology and deadlines, good sleep is becoming harder and harder to achieve.  Nerina’s life work has been dedicated to helping individuals and organisations to regain a greater balance, vitality, meaning and peace by teaching them how to get better sleep!

Nerina uses her academic background in physiology, philosophy and psychology to guide her teaching, but her approach is highly practical.  She has a strong belief that everyone can live a healthy and more fulfilling life by tapping into and nurturing their deepest inner resources – even in these hectic, technologically driven times that we live in.

As the original founder of BUPA’s Corporate Wellbeing Solutions, she is a regular speaker at many City groups.  In April 2000, she set up her own consultancy and has worked in various industries including sport (Chelsea Football Club), legal, insurance, accountancy, healthcare and banking.

Nerina’s work has been featured in The Times, The Telegraph, The Independent, The Sunday Express, The Guardian, New Scientist, and The Evening Standard. She has talked about power napping on the Radio 2 Chris Evans show and has appeared on GMTV, CNN and more recently, SKY NEWS talking about technology addiction.  She recently appeared on ITV’s This Morning show teaching the nation how to sleep peacefully.

Nerina is Author of Tired But Wired: How to Overcome Sleep Problems: the Essential Sleep Toolkit (2010), Fast Asleep Wide Awake (2016) and The Little Book of Sleep: The Art of Natural Sleep (2018)
