The evidence supporting the use of CBTi within Sleepstation

Insomnia is a highly prevalent and costly health problem that often remains untreated despite the availability of effective treatments for insomnia. A specific form of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), designed for insomnia (CBTi), is a well validated treatment, with evidence spanning over 30 years. The efficacy of CBTi to improve outcomes in primary and co-morbid insomnia has been repeatedly demonstrated, with improvements in both mental and physical health outcomes. A summary of the key evidence for insomnia treatment, including published evidence for Sleepstation, is outlined below.

There is strong empirical evidence that CBTi is effective and CBTi has been recognised as the first-line treatment for chronic insomnia (National Institutes of Health consensus, British Medical Association). However, the lack of trained therapists and sleep experts prevents widespread availability of this treatment in face-face settings. Sleepstation’s online CBTi programme is an alternative to referring to a sleep clinic for CBTi and/or follow-on prescriptions for sleeping pills and other medications to aid sleep.

Sleepstation can effectively resolve all forms of insomnia. By completing a short questionnaire, those with symptoms of insomnia can find out if Sleepstation could help them overcome their sleep problems for good.
