Prof. Colin Espie (University of Oxford), world sleep expert and creator of Sleepio says “The most effective, long-term solution for poor sleep is CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, which addresses both the mental and the behavioral parts of the individual's sleep pattern by helping the person to think and behave differently in relation to their sleep, in such a way that normal good sleep can return. Sleepio is a clinically proven digital sleep improvement program that uses proven CBT techniques to help users with persistent sleep problems.” Source of clinical trial data: Espie et al. (2012).
