Advanced Sleep Management Advisor™

Professional Diploma Level 5

The science-based certification to understanding the science behind why we sleep, the importance of both sleep quantity and quality, factors that influence if we wake feeling tired, and how to build a personalised sleep program for a client to help them wake well-rested and ready for the day

We developed this advanced certification because of questions we get all the time at The Health Sciences Academy, like:

  • “Why am I so tired all the time?”
  • “I’m in bed for 8 hours each night but I still hit snooze 5 times before I have the energy to get up”
  • “How can I stop feeling the need to doze off during meetings?”
  • “Should I be taking naps during the day?”
  • “Since I started working nights, I always feel tired. What can I do?”
  • “As a doctor, I work odd shifts, so my sleep is all over the place. How can I ensure that I’m getting the rest I know I need to function at my best?”
(Yes, we get questions like these even from medical doctors and university-trained dietitians and nutritionists).
Questions like these inspired us to bring practical science directly to those who want to help clients with their sleep quality in the right way.
This advanced training is our combined know-how in sleep science and nutrition and lifestyle factors that influence sleep quantity and quality.
If you want to help your client wake up feeling rested and ready for the day rather than tired and needing caffeine to get started, we believe that you need to understand the science of sleep including the behaviour, physiological, and psychological factors that influence it.
So how do you do it?
Fortunately, that’s exactly what you’re about to learn.

Research has found that about a third of us aren’t getting the recommended hours of sleep to function at our best!

Moreover, about 48% of us struggle to fall asleep or stay asleep 1 or more nights a week.
It’s not just the hours spent in bed that matter, but the quality of sleep as well.
Unfortunately, there’s a massive knowledge gap in sleep science in the general population.
Many people do not understand the importance of good quality sleep, the factors that influence our rest, or how to go about improving how well they sleep.
This means that sleep management advisors must gain a profound, science-based insight that they can use to help clients PROFICIENTLY. Particularly if they want to stand out and be leaders in this field.

That’s where YOU can make a difference.

When you become a certified Sleep Management Advisor, you’ll know how to run sleep management programs based on proven scientific methods…

…and you’ll be able to confidently address issues and answer questions such as:
  • Why do we sleep?
  • How much sleep do we actually need?
  • What are the consequences of not getting enough sleep?
  • What is the role of naps in reducing daytime sleepiness?
  • How does the circadian rhythm influence sleep?
  • Does our social calendar affect our sleep quality?
  • What is the role of sleep on inflammation and gut health?
  • How does sleeping less impact dietary choices?

Discover the factors that influence sleep quality

There are many factors which influence our ability to fall asleep, stay asleep, and wake up feeling energised and ready for the day’s challenges. Understanding the science behind each of these, how to assess whether this may be influencing your client’s sleep, and how to help a client if it is one of their factors is key.
Some of these factors include:
  • Sleep environment
  • Naps
  • Lights
  • Sounds
  • Bedroom temperature
  • Bed and pillow comfort
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Pets
  • Partners
  • Exercise
  • Alcohol
  • Caffeine
  • Fluid consumption
  • Dietary choices
  • Health conditions
  • Chronotypes

Learn to design personalised sleep management plans

We’ll show you how to perform health risk assessments to evaluate levels of daytime sleepiness, perceived stress, overweight risk, physical activity, and more.
You’ll also learn how to help your client keep a food and symptoms diary, and how you can analyse it. In this way, you can evaluate which nutritional factors may be contributing to a client’s poor sleep.
In addition, you’ll be getting trackers to help you monitor your client’s progress and sleep quality during their program with you.
Once you complete your training, you’ll also understand that our genetic makeup may play a role in our sleep quality, but that our daily choices have a larger influence.
