Nightmares Before Bedtime is now on Patreon!

Nightmares Before Bedtime began in September 2016. I’ve been struggling with mental health issues for a number of years and, at that time, I realised that I needed a way to occupy my mind. As I began to find true crime intriguing, I decided to create a YouTube channel where I could explore the darker side of humanity in a creative way. I chose the name ‘Nightmares Before Bedtime’ when I noticed how many people consume ‘horror’ content before going to sleep. But as I began researching true crime, I found that this fascinating subject was actually helping me deal with depression, anxiety and OCD. Motivated by this, I decided to expand the channel by covering haunted locations as a nod to my love of history and ghost stories. My channel has been key in helping me on the journey to conquering my mental health issues and I wouldn’t want to be without it. The support you have given me has played a big role in making me feel empowered.

I want to ensure that the Nightmares continue to entertain you all for a long time. If you wish to donate, your contribution will go towards funding new equipment, research materials and it will help to cover some of the costs the channel/podcast encounters. If you’ve read this far, thank you! Now you can look over your shoulder. That thing standing behind you is starting to bother me.
