This week, Jonathan is joined by Hugh Selsick, Consultant in Sleep Medicine and Psychiatry at University College London Hospitals, UK. Selsick delves into what led him to his role as a sleep medicine consultant in London all the way from South Africa, as well as unpacking sleep disorders that are often misdiagnosed. Jonathan also discusses Selsick’s recent work on the use of cognitive behavioural therapy as a treatment for parasomnias, and the reasons behind the negative effects of the pandemic on sleeping habits.
