CBT-i Coach is for people who are engaged in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia with a health provider, or who have experienced symptoms of insomnia and would like to improve their sleep habits. The app will guide you through the process of learning about sleep, developing positive sleep routines, and improving your sleep environment. It provides a structured program that teaches strategies proven to improve sleep and help alleviate symptoms of insomnia.

CBT-i Coach is intended to augment face-to-face care with a healthcare professional. It can be used on its own, but it is not intended to replace therapy for those who need it.

CBT-i Coach is based on the therapy manual, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia in Veterans, by Rachel Manber, Ph.D., Leah Friedman, Ph.D., Colleen Carney, Ph.D., Jack Edinger, Ph.D., Dana Epstein, Ph.D., Patricia Haynes, Ph.D., Wilfred Pigeon, Ph.D. and Allison Siebern, Ph.D. CBT-i has been shown to be efficacious for insomnia for both Veterans and civilians.

CBT-i Coach was a collaborative effort between VA’s National Center for PTSD, Stanford School of Medicine, and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology.

CBT-i Coach works with the Apple Health app and Fitbit.

Great Tool for Accurately Tracking Sleep

I love this app! Great for accurately recording # hrs sleep for doctor's records and mine. The reason for 4 instead of 5, it gets a glitch once in a while and won't allow me to record certain dates. I think in the 2 yrs i've been using this this has happened 3x. The sleep recommendation is really off. I use it more just to graph my sleep patterns for my records and those of my health professionals.

Understand your sleep

I got this app at the recommendation of my Occupational therapist because I had not been getting enough sleep.
The app allowed me to track how I was sleeping as well as track my sleeping habits. Seeing my sleeping habits like when I go to bed on a graph really helped me become more aware of where I could improve personally to try and get a better sleep. It also allows you to track different things that can affect your sleep and can be hooked up to your smart watch. I definitely recommend it even for people without sleep disorders.
