Dr Mark Ryan, Consultant Psychiatrists

Qualifications: MB BS; FRANZCP; BCN

Sleep is a necessary requirement for health and well being. It has a role in most/all of the main prevalent health problems, physical and mental. Sleep problems are very common in the community and are prominent aspects of the psychological and psychiatric disorders. Persistence of sleep problems predicts recidivism and relapse in substance abuse problems, depression and anxiety to name a few common health problems.

Personalised assessments allow for more personalised and multi-level interventions. Neuromodulation in the form of neurofeedback can have specific effects for some forms of sleep disorder and a sustained effect at least equivalent to stimulant medications in the treatment of the largest group with ADHD who have a circadian rhythm sleep disorder. Neuromodulation in the form of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has a role in the treatment of depression and OCD and when informed by comprehensive assessments and delivered in combination with a relevant psychotherapy can achieve sustained results well above those achieved with the standard treatment approaches.
