Deirdre McSwiney has 18 years experience working in Sleep Medicine in the Mater Private Hospital. She set up the Laboratory in 1996, where all sleep disorders were diagnosed and treated.

Orginally a graduate of D.I.T., Kevin Street, Dublin and working in neurology, she studied in DCU where she was awarded a B.A. in 2007.

Seven years ago she trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) in the Sackler Institute, Glasgow under the tutelage of Prof. Colin Espie.

She is a founding member of the Irish Sleep Society which is now 10 years old, a member of the British Sleep Society, and a member of the Behavioural Medicine Faculty of Penn University under Prof. Michael Perlis.

Deirdre deals with patients on a one to one basis, or in small groups. Monitoring of progress is done by the use of sleep diaries, questionnaires and some objective technological support if required.
