Digital sleep improvement programme (available via web and mobile), clinically proven to help overcome even long-term poor sleep.
The gold standard approach to insomnia treatment is a talking therapy called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). CBT involves learning cognitive techniques to address the ‘racing mind’, and behavioural strategies to help re-set sleep patterns naturally. Sleepio uses the latest digital technology to deliver the ingredients of CBT for insomnia in a fully automated, scalable, yet personalised way. Users are guided through a series of weekly interactive sessions by The Prof, a virtual sleep expert, and his narcoleptic dog, Pavlov. Sleepio is clinically proven to help overcome the worry and negative emotions that accompany the experience of being unable to sleep.
