We seek to support people with a wide range of sleeping difficulties, includes:

  • Insomnia, such as difficulty falling asleep, sleeping through the night, wake up too early, and non-refreshed sleep.
  • Breathing problems during sleep, such as snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea
  • Body clock or circadian rhythm sleep-wake disorders, for example those with delayed sleep phase disorder, shift-workers with sleep difficulties, and irregular sleep schedules.
  • Other sleep disorders such as restless legs syndrome, nightmares, hypersomnia, narcolepsy.

Eligibility and requirements for admission

Before you visit us, please visit your GP in order to obtain the following two referrals so you can receive Medicare rebates for your visits:

  • A referral to a Sleep Physician for the initial consultation
  • If you wish to see a Sleep Psychologist under Medicare you will also need a Mental Health Care Plan.

For an appointment with one of our Sleep physicians’ clients must be 18 years of age or over.
For an appointment with a sleep psychologist we are able to book appointments for both adults and adolescents.

If you are attending the clinic to seek services for Insomnia or body clock disorders we recommend you obtain both referrals during your visit to your GP, so you can receive the full benefits of our service without delay.


Cost of service

All physician appointments are bulk billed.

A small fee covers the comprehensive CBT-I package or circadian re-entraining. The total cost of the first appointment with a psychologist is $226.50 with $126.50 rebate claimable from Medicare using your Mental Health Care Plan. After the initial appointment, all subsequent appointments are bulk billed.

Types of Assessment used

We use a comprehensive and holistic assessment method including questionnaires, interviews, computerised assessment, diary keeping, and physiological tracking (eg. Activity watch). Our assessment is both initial to determine a treatment plan, and continuous to ensure treatment is tailored to the individuals needs throughout the entire treatment process.

Healthy Sleep Clinic patients have access to a broad range of treatments and opportunities to participate in research, including trials of novel therapies.

Types of Treatment used

We use a combination of cognitive behavioural therapy, counselling services, and state-of-the-art treatment methods including bright light therapy. Our treatment can run alongside most pharmaceutical treatment.
