Default High blood pressure - fluctuating numbers

Wasn't sure where to post this question, am looking for some advice on causes of high blood pressure and ways to reduce it.

Over the last couple of years I've had differing numbers for blood pressure but mostly trending high. In November last year they were 140/78, yesterday was up to 159/96.

Blood lipids, triglycerides and pulse rate numbers are all good:
Cholesterol (Fasting) : 4.8 mmo1/1
Trigliceride : 0.62 mmo1/1
HDL : 1.37 mmo1/1
LDL : 3.15 mmo1/1
Pulse - 56

Diet is ok, organic meat, some vegetables, eggs. Tho i do have some oats for breakfast and i do have dairy too - though all organic. Occasional cheat meal with bread or pasta (once a week max).

I take sodium valproate daily for migraines, I also supplement with fish oil, vit D, vit B, Zinc and Selenium.

Sleep is not good - 5.5 - 6.5 hours a night and a pretty stressful job with travelling between London and the US every 4-6 weeks or so.

Any help or advice gratefully received.
