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.”

Very promising!

Just joined today, followed the instructions online, did the surveys, etc. Looking forward to what’s next but like what I’m seeing so far!

Are the features on the website the same as in the app? If anything that would be my only feedback. It’s easier for me to keep track of a diary on my mobile device. Just FYI.

Developer Response

Hi there - Thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback!

There are some tools, such as the Community, Library, and Case File which are only available on the website. This is because the app is only intended to be an accompaniment to the full program. I'm glad, however, to pass along to our Product team that it would be helpful if the app contained the same tools as the site, for consideration as we continuously strive to improve the program. In the meantime, you're always also welcome to access the site through the mobile browser on your phone.

I hope this information is helpful and I thank you again for letting us know that full access to the program through your app would be your preference. :) If you have any additional feedback, or have any questions at all, please email us at for the quickest reply - we're always happy to help!

All the best,

Team Sleepio



I just downloaded the app and the first thing it asks me to do is login. I didn’t sign up at all though, I just got the account. But it only had the option to sign in so after several attempts to sign up and make an account, I gave up and deleted it. Thanks for helping me sleep....🤬

Developer Response

Hi there,

So sorry to hear about the confusion. Happy to explain - since the app is intended to be an accompaniment to the full program, it's necessary to create a Sleepio account on the website before logging into the app.

Additionally, you should find that the app description in the iTunes store says: "This is the companion app for Sleepio - the sleep improvement program. Please note: you must have a Sleepio account to log in to the app. You can create an account at" May I ask if this appears for you in the app description in the app store? We definitely want to look into that, if not.

If you would like to move forward with creating an account, you can get started at by clicking the 'Get Started' button at After you've taken the short survey, you'll be able to create an account and receive your sleep score, followed by options for both paid and free access. Once you've setup your account, you'll then be able to login through the app using the same credentials as you used on the Sleepio website.

Again, very sorry to hear about the confusion. We're always happy to assist so please don't hesitate to send us an email at, for the quickest reply, if we can help with any questions or concerns.

All the best,
Team Sleepio

Trial period / payment plan


A trial period before committing $300 upfront payment would be more enticing even for this sleep deprived exhausted desperately seeking solutions noodle. A monthly payment plan could help along with a discount (or free!) for the few initial signups willing to help sort out the app bugs in the process .

Developer Response

Thanks so much for the feedback! Definitely appreciate that a trial period or payment plan would be beneficial.

Might be helpful to know that we do offer a 14 day money back guarantee but, evenso, realize the cost may still be prohibitive for some, so we're working hard to see it covered by the NHS and insurances.

Thank you again for the feedback and best of luck with your future sleep and health!

All the best,
Team Sleepio
