Prof. Espie says “The most effective, long-term solution for poor sleep is a cognitive and behavioural approach, which addresses the mental and behavioural 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 behavioural 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.

Sleepio programme has given me my life back

I had been suffering from lack of sleep for many many years.
I was addicted to Sleeping tablets which culminated in them having very little effect. If I had more than 2 hours total sleep I considered it to be a good night. My physical health, my mental health, my memory and my marriage was suffering. I even contemplated suicide. I thought I was going mad.
Then I saw a Channel 5 Tv programme about insomnia. I realised I could get help from experts. I joined the Sleepio Programme in July with no expectations of success for me but I stuck at it, I now average at least a total 7+ hours sleep per night with no drugs.
I look better, feel better and my memory is improving. No longer have thoughts of suicide or fears of divorce.
Sleepio works for me. The community is so supportive. No drugs. It is tough but it works.
Negative - why is it not available on the NHS in the UK. It has to be more cost effective as no funding for drugs or G.P time.
Thank you Sleepio team. I thank God every day.
