Helping organisations to support their employees to overcome insomnia and sleep problems
"According to RAND Europe's research and cross-country analysis in 2016, lack of sleep among UK workers is costing the economy around £40 billion and 200,000 working days lost each year."
Beatrix A Schmidt, Author of The Sleep Deep Method®
Why should you care?
According to various recent research and survey results, in the UK alone approximately 1 in 3 people struggle with insomnia or other sleep issues.
At first glance, you might think that poor sleep is an issue for the employee to address at home.
But the knock-on effect of sleep deprivation carries over into the workplace every single day, reducing productivity and decreasing employee engagement.
Mental health and the quality of a person’s sleep are very closely linked. Lack of quality sleep is also linked to a wide range of cognitive and physiological impairments. From increased stress levels, mental health issues, decreased working memory capacity, and inability to focus on tasks, to increased risk of heart disease and elevated blood pressure – the list is ever-growing.
Sleep issues and the related tiredness during the day eventually leads to individuals failing to function well during the working day, and in their free time. It is a quite simple chain of events that happens for so many employees in today’s busy and demanding society.
The term ‘burnout’ is heard more and more around the corridors of companies everywhere.
The root of this problem stems in tiredness and manifests as a loss of motivation, resilience, and sometimes the onset of depression.
Burnout is avoidable with the right wellness strategy in place.
When loyal and hardworking employees get the support they need to balance their work with their health, they avoid more serious health concerns being triggered.
In turn, the organization experiences better talent retention rates, increased work performance, reduced absenteeism and better teamwork.

We recently had Beatrix Schmidt come in to do a sleep workshop with us to promote well being among our staff. The workshop was interactive and engaging and we all came out with practical changes we could make to improve our sleep.
We have already had feedback from several staff members that they went and put some things in practice straight away and have already noticed and improvement in the quality of their sleep!
I would highly recommend Beatrix Schmidt for an insightful and interactive sleep workshop! Thank you

I recently worked with Beatrix on a project that had a short lead time for planning, but very high expectations for delivery.
It was the first time we had worked together and Beatrix did everything she could to make the process smooth and successful.
The workshop she delivered was educational, relatable and fun. I would definitely recommend her and look forward to working together in the future.

Had a fantastic one to one with Sleep Expert Beatrix Schmidt in work as part of our ongoing WebHEALTH programme. I just want to say a huge thanks and I would recommend it to everyone.
It was very insightful and got lots of great advice. It's a journey to get good sleep back in my life and Beatrix has given me invaluable coaching and suggestions to help.
Thanks and I couldn't recommend it enough.

Thanks for coming in to speak with our team! I have been hearing lots of employees quoting your advice on keeping the bedroom for sleeping (not reading, TV or phones) and saying how they've noticed a positive difference already!

"Attending Beatrix's seminar over lunch was a great investment of my time, as it was a great way in which to reacquaint myself with the approaches I need to take in order to enjoy healthy sleep.
I enjoyed the honesty of Beatrix's testimony and it was great to hear from a practitioner who has struggled with the same kinds of issues associated with sleep, who showed real empathy to the kinds of issues people were experiencing.
The seminar acted as a great 'reset' for me, and since then I have been enjoying real improvements in my sleep - mainly due to the reintroduction of a proper bedtime routine."
Beatrix took part in a health and wellbeing season organised for the team here at Guy's and St Thomas' Charity. We knew that sleep was something people were interested in and some were struggling with.
Her talk was interesting and focused on adjusting your routine to support better sleep. Beatrix has a lovely relaxed presenting style and is clearly passionate about her work.
The session covered a lot of ground and she also signposted to some further materials for people to refer to.
