What time does she normally fall asleep, what have you tried so far my daughter ithat is  now 10 and  has had sleep problems her hole life and I've had similar issues in the past, I moved her bedtime later by  giving her a choice of reasonable bedtimes so she felt in control  I also stopped bath times  of a night moved them to mornings after she had choose a time which in our case was 8 I then asked her what she thought would help her before going to bed she said listening to relaxing  music and she suggested going up to bed at 7.30 listening to music to begin with she was still awake at 10/11 pm but very slowly shes now asleep by 9 now and shell have a shower when she gets in from school then dinner then music in her room which shes either falls asleep listening too or switches off then goes to sleep  I used to go through similar to you   and my daughter could still be going till 2am in the morning  the word no and dont are also bug  triggers to violent melt downs for my daughter I dont mention the word bedtime I will say have you seen the time if she hasnt gone up by our agreed time though

Hi, I understand that this is a difficult situation. Have you tried changing things around bedtime? Like changing when she goes to bed, or reading to her before bed, or bath time before bed or something else. You may also find it helpful to read our articles on child behaviour. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at askus@familylives.org.uk or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.
