Nicky Peters

Nicky's travelled the world and slept on a fair number of beds - from luxurious king sizes in five-star hotels to creaky, worn innerspring mattresses in dodgy hostels.

Now, as editor of Sleep Hero UK and a certified sleep therapist, she's on the hunt to find the best products and practices in the sleep world in the UK and beyond.

When not writing (or sleeping), Nicky enjoys a range of sporty activities, including hiking, swimming, and skating, and gets her energy from eating copious amounts of sushi.


While an expert sleeper and writer with BA, BA(Hons), and MA qualifications, Nicky is also a certified sleep coach and works on understanding how sleep problems arise from hormonal, environmental, and comfort-based perspectives, particularly as part of stress and anxiety management.
