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.”

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.

Are you kidding me. £399 for this sleep app? Who are you marketing this at? It’s not the average Joe is it? If I had sleep problems before they’d be worse thinking about how I would put food on the table after paying for this. I looked at this app as a potential to recommend to clients managing low mood or anxiety. I have yet to meet one who could afford this. Make it more accessible, for the many, not the few!

It might get more stars if I could log in!

I was not happy at the idea of an app that only lets you log in via third parties but I need no have worried. Repeated attempts (so many that Google threatened to log me out) just told me I’d made an error with my p/w. That can’t have been right as I got an email from G saying I’d just logged in from a new device!
I’d give no stars if I could as it does not seem useable
