Kate Mikhail

Kate Mikhail is a London-based freelance journalist and editor, who has written a wide range of features and reviews for the Guardian, Observer, Telegraph and Independent newspapers, as well as for many other publications. After decades of trying traditional methods to cure her poor sleep, the chance reading of a book by her Irish great-great uncle Richard Waters, a pioneer in cognitive therapy and clinical hypnosis and right-hand man to the eminent self-help guru Emile Coué, led chronic insomniac Kate Mikhail to research the science of sleep and the mind-body loop. From this Kate developed her tried-and-tested method that finally enabled her to take control of her sleep and wake up feeling rested and energised. Kate is now an ex-chronic insomniac, thanks to researching her first book, Teach Yourself to Sleep, in which she explores the biology and science of sleep and how to look at sleep from a different perspective to improve the quality of sleep, health and wellbeing.
