This book is a life changer!

Delphi literally goes under the covers and shares her vast experience and knowledge about the reasons why many of us struggle to get a peaceful and rejuvenating night’s sleep. In my opinion this is the best book you will ever read about sleep, you will learn so much and will look forward to bedtime once again.

The 4am Mystery: that’s an actual thing by the way. Even before a global health crisis took the shape of COVID-19, people around the world were finding themselves sleep deprived, awake in the middle of the night.

You might be someone who says, no matter what you do, you just can’t sleep. Sometimes you know why: your thoughts are racing, or a nightmare has startled you into consciousness. Other nights you might toss and turn and, just as you finally doze off, the alarm blares.

This book was written for you.

It explores why you’re awake, how you can manage your mind at night, and what might help if it’s your dream content wreaking havoc.

Drawing on nearly two decades of therapeutic work, research, and an ancient wisdom proven to helpfully manage the mind, Delphi connects the dots between sleep, dreams and our mental health. She particularly highlights the impact of grief and loss on our well-being, which can ultimately affect the quality of our night-time rest – even if no one has died. Her book guides the reader on a journey to make friends with night-time, learning what the dark might have to offer, to achieve a calmer, healthier, happier life.

A wonderful read filled with insight, kindness and compassion. Getting good sleep is one of the key ways to improve your well-being and this book helps with that but so much more along the way. Delphi really is a special and healing force, the text is clear and informative – it helps you really grapple with what could be difficult topics in a clear, calm and safe way. Highly recommended for humans.

 Delphi helps us to look at sleep from a different perspective and we all want a more restful night. I’ve already used some of the insights to get a better night’s sleep and as someone with insomnia I thought I had heard all the best ones already. A helpful read!
