Monash University Healthy Sleep Clinic

Problem sleeping? Sleepy during the day? Concerned about your sleep? The Healthy Sleep Clinic is here to help.

We are a group of physicians, psychologists, and physiologists experienced in treating sleep and body clock disorders in people across diverse backgrounds and cultures. Our passion to help people improve sleep health brings us together to deliver personalised, evidence-based, multi-disciplinary care to the community.

What we can help with

We can help with problems:

  • Falling asleep, sleeping through the night, or waking up too early
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Weaning off sleeping pills (hypnotic tapering)
  • Managing shift work or irregular sleep schedules
  • Nightmares
  • Discomfort or restlessness while falling asleep
  • And more...

Or with specific non-respiratory sleep diagnoses:

We focus on treating non-respiratory sleep disorders above. If a respiratory sleep condition such as obstructive sleep apnea is the only concern, please contact other sleep disorder services. We will, however, provide assessment and treatment for above non-respiratory sleep disorders if they co-exist with a respiratory sleep disorder. For example, we will support individuals with obstructive sleep apnea in addressing co-existing insomnia.

Treatment services

We tailor treatments for each client through a range of assessments.

Assessments may include:

  • Questionnaires
  • Interviews
  • Keeping a sleep diary
  • Non-intrusive wearable monitors (e.g. sleep watch/headband)
  • Overnight sleep study
  • Physiological assessments for body clock

We are experienced with science-based treatments, including:

Our approach to treatment

  • Our treatments can run alongside most pharmaceutical treatments
  • All our psychologists are experienced with general mental health concerns, and can provide integrated care when sleep problems co-occur with difficulties such as depression and anxiety
  • Team-based approach is a stand-out feature in the treatment we provide. We work closely with existing care providers and our multi-disciplinary team of experts meet and discuss joint care of clients

Coming to see us

Depending on your needs, you may see a sleep physician, psychologist, or both. The best way to arrange that is to ask your GP for a referral, so that you may receive Medicare rebates.

To see a sleep physician:

  • Ask your GP for a referral to a sleep physician for the initial consultation
  • Clients must be 18 years or older

To see  a psychologist for sleep concerns:

If you are attending the clinic to see services for insomnia or a body clock disorder, we recommend obtaining both referrals for a sleep physician (if you have not seen one yet) and psychologist during your visit to your GP, so that you can receive the full benefits of our service without delay.


We currently offer our services in-person or via Telehealth. our clinic has implemented a COVIDSafe Plan in accordance with current Monash University policies.

Improving the treatments of sleep disorders via cutting-edge research and discovery is an integral part of the Healthy Sleep Clinic. Many of our expert clinicians and physiologists are leading researchers in their fields. Collectively, we publish over 50 scientific articles per year, and our work is supported by major funding bodies such as the National Health and Medical Research Council, Australian Research Council, and Australasian Sleep Association.

Clients attending our service are invited to join our ongoing research database. We use de-identified information from this database to better understand the nature and treatment responses of sleep disorders.

Clients may also be invited to research projects, such as clinical trials. You will receive detailed information about these research opportunities when you first attend our clinic. You are free to opt-out of research by contacting and if you do so, you will receive high standard clinical care.

We also partner with research teams to help them reach the community for their studies. Below are current research studies or clinical trials recruiting participants:

  • Project ARISE (Australian Research on Insomnia, Sleep & Emotions) is a clinical trial recruiting people experiencing insomnia
  • Project COMISA (Comorbid Insomnia and Sleep Apnoea) is a clinical trial recruiting people with both insomnia and sleep apnoea
