The Somnio-team offers an effective online insomnia treatment: The sleep therapy is based on
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for insomnia (CBT-i).
One-on-one sleep therapy in the privacy of your own home
During the last few decennia, scientific studies have shown that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is an effective treatment for insomnia. A consensus report published by NIH has confirmed this. CBT-i works equally well as sleeping pills and has a better long-term outcome. In addition CBT-i has important advantages compared to sleep medications:
CBT-I has traditionally been given in face-to-face sessions. The availability of clinics with sleep trained psychologists is however scarce. We applied advanced computing and expert-systems technology to help improve insomnia in your own home without direct face-to-face sessions.
no side effects
no risk of addition
the achieved sleep improvement lasts long after the treatment is completed
Somnio Online CBT-i bridges the gap between the millions of insomnia sufferers and the limitations of face-to-face solutions.
Computer-based Somnio sleep therapy has various advantages
Somnio allows clients and sleep therapists to work together efficiently, saving time and costs compared to face-to-face therapy, and thus increasing the availability of CBT-i.
The online treatment is available to anyone with an internet connection. No need to travel or schedule appointments.
The computer-supported treatment program helps to ensure a high treatment quality, while at the same time allowing the sleep therapists to adjust the treatment plan to the personal needs of each individual client.
Clinically proven 80% success rate
In line with many recent studies reporting that internet therapy is equally effective as face-to-face treatment for various psychological problems, our own research has shown that Somnio is equally effective as a face-to-face CBT-i.
