The founder of SleepWell&Stressless is Dr. Inge Declercq, MD. She is a neurologist and certified sleep expert (ESRS board certified) with a broad complimentary pack of skills.  Inge is passionate about bringing her expertise to the business world at all levels and about guiding people to optimal performance, energy and health through optimizing their sleep quality, their jetlag and shift work control and their stress-management. Several years ago, she left the comfort-zone of a more “classical” hospital career and founded SleepWell&StressLess.

Furthermore, she is also trained in ICF certified Coaching, the Cognitive-Behavioral therapy of Insomnia (CBT-I), Chronobiology (the study of our biological rhythms), and in various stress-coping techniques. Actually, she combines her activities within SleepWell&Stressless with those at the Antwerp University Hospital (UZA).

The SleepWell&StressLess method©  is unique and based on the powerful and multi-disciplinary combination of science-based medical knowledge with coaching and positive psychology,  stress-reduction techniques, various cognitive-behavioral skills and chronobiology. Trainings are always pragmatic and interactive. A lot of attention is given to a positive mindset and to what you can do during your day to optimise your night.
