Prof. Colin Espie (University of Oxford), world sleep expert and creator of Sleepio says "The most effective, long-term solution for poor sleep is a cognitive and behavioral approach, which addresses the mental and behavioral parts of the individual's sleep pattern. These approaches help the person to think and behave differently in relation to their sleep, which encourages good sleep to return. Sleepio is a clinically proven digital sleep improvement program that uses cognitive and behavioral techniques to help users with persistent sleep problems."

Sticking plaster therapy

Based on CBT this can only be a temporary solution, for most people. Typical for the NHS, ticks the box of being seen to be doing something. The process and App only takes very superficial data. It fails to factor in daily intake of caffeine, alcohol etc. It only takes general environmental, lifestyle and relationship information. Again not on a daily basis. It doesn’t deal with rem sleep or ‘dreaming’. Both indicators of emotional state, the main causes of long term poor sleep quality. CBT is a behaviouralist therapy. Notorious for generalising & treating people as part of homogeneous society not as individuals.
If you get it free as part of the NHS programme, give it go. If not don’t pay for it. There’s a lot of free solutions online.

Sleepio has helped me

I have had insomnia for decades. I rarely had a problem with going to sleep but woke too early. I always felt that cognitive behavioural therapy would help me but have never had the opportunity to use it before. The professor is gentle and encouraging and warns you how hard the sleep restriction is. Weeks three and four are really hard and I did want to give up. I persevered as I felt this was my last chance of improving my sleep and I now have managed 85-90% sleep efficiency on most nights. I would recommend this program but it does take discipline and determination. The only area where I changed the rules slightly was with the quarter of an hour rule. I adapted this by about ten minutes as for me 15 minutes was too short a time to get back to sleep. I would also like to add that when I had a technical problem I had a helpful reply very quickly. I feel my sleep is greatly improved and continue to practice what I have learnt as I don’t want to backslide. I would really recommend Sleepio. It is changing my life.

Helped me find the real source of the problem

Came to this after seeing it on a documentary. Works best when used in conjunction with the online course. By committing to the actions suggested by the Prof I was, within three weeks, sleeping through the night for the first time in years. Still tired all the time, I finally went to the doctor and discovered the real cause. Shouldn't have waited so long.

The app and course have helped me develop better sleeping patterns and attitudes, and created the space for me to see what's really happening for me health wise.

If you've got into bad habits with regards bed and getting up times, relaxing, and calming the mind, Sleepio will help a lot.
