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.”

Developer Response

Hi there - Sorry to hear about the confusion with signing up and the sticker shock. Happy to help with both. :)

As it sounds like you experienced, it's not possible to sign into Sleepio with your Facebook credentials but after you created your Sleepio account, you should have been able to use Facebook to login? Please let us know if that didn't work for you - we'll be happy to look into that!

In regards to the pricing, it might be helpful to know that, for those not covered by their employee, we do offer a 14 day money back guarantee. Even so, we do realize the cost may still be prohibitive for some, so we're working hard to see it covered by the NHS and insurances.

In the meantime, you can also gain free access to the program if you'd be interested in taking part in a research study? If you'd like more information regarding that, please let us know at - we're very happy to help further!

All the best,

Team Sleepio

Money grab


$550 upfront for a year and no trial period?! Ridiculous! No thanks!

Developer Response

Hi there,

Sorry to hear about the sticker shock but happy to let you know that we do have options for free access, which we'd be glad to share with you, if you'd like to send us a message at Also, while there's no trial period, if you found the free options aren't right for you and were to decide to pay out of pocket we do offer a 14 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee if you decide the program isn't right for you.

I definitely don't want you to feel like Sleepio is a 'money grab', as the Sleepio program is backed by clinical studies and we're working very hard to ultimately see the program covered by more employers and insurance companies with the hopes that there will eventually be no out of pocket expense to individuals.

If you'd like to learn about the science behind the Sleepio program, you're very welcome to visit our website at where you'll find information about the Sleepio solution, the outcomes backed by clinical evidence, and our published research, as well as see the faces of the medical professionals on our clinical and research teams.

I hope you find the information there helpful but please don't hesitate to get in touch (at if we can help with free access options or any other specific questions!

All the best,
Sleepio Team

It won't shut up

This might be a great app I really can't tell. Unfortunately it talks and talks and talks and talks really slowly. If it would just show me text on the screen I could read it, about 30 times faster than it speaks, and I might actually learn something and or use the app.

If you have the patience to waste your time with Podcasts, or don't really know how to read, this might be a great app give it a try.
