Sleepio has been evaluated by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

Sleepio is a fully automated online sleep improvement programme for insomnia, which delivers tailored and engaging advice, 24/7. It is clinically proven to improve sleep, mental wellbeing and productivity.

Developed by Professor Colin Espie from the University of Oxford, Sleepio is backed by gold-standard scientific evidence, which includes 33 published papers and 8 randomised controlled trials. Further information about our evidence can be found here.


Sleepio for UK employers 

Helping your employees sleep better, feel happier and worry less

Everyone has a bad night’s sleep from time to time.
By helping your employees to improve their sleep, Sleepio can improve your organisation’s productivity, morale and retention.

Sleep and mental health have a bi-directional relationship – by helping your employees to sleep better, Sleepio offers a destigmatised ‘way in’ to improve mental wellbeing. 

80% of insomnia sufferers don’t access psychological support on the NHS because of stigma, lack of time or accessibility.    By taking our sleep test and completing the sleep diary, Sleepio creates a programme tailored to each individual, available 24/7 at a time that suits them.

Workforce programmes are often limited by stigma, lack of time or accessibility.                                                            Our proven approach lets you make a big impact with minimal effort.  Our launch toolkit  provides everything you will need to launch Sleepio in your organisation via email, newsletter or intranet. We also provide a calendar of topical and seasonal communications to help you maintain engagement.  Subject to availability we can also offer training & events. 




We are already working with some of the world's leading brands and health systems to benefit their workforces

Sleepio for UK health professionals

Until now, most healthcare professionals have only been able to provide basic sleep hygiene advice or prescribe hypnotics for chronic insomnia. Clinical guidelines recommend Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for insomnia but access to face-to-face therapy is limited in the NHS.

Sleepio is an online self-care programme based on CBT for insomnia (CBTi).

It has been evaluated by NICE and tested across eight randomised controlled trials in over 6,900 people. It is proven to help people make lifestyle changes to improve both insomnia symptoms and mental wellbeing.

Sleepio is suitable for adults (aged 18+) who have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep through the night. Users need to have an email address and access to the internet.
