Sleep and Insomnia problems – the science
The short term solutions we use for a better night of sleep can sometimes make things worse, and can even help cause insomnia. Relaxation techniques alone will not help. Sleepyhead uses well established, scientific techniques to improve sleep in the long term by targeting our behaviours and the cognitive processes we go through to improve sleep without the use of sleeping pills.
All you have to do is come to the Sleepyhead Clinic ready to learn and apply the techniques at home with our cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia solution.
The majority of patients respond to this treatment fairly quickly, seeing improvements in sleep quality and total sleep time, as well as an increase in alertness, concentration, memory and productivity.
Stephanie is a Sleep expert providing sleep advice in the Exeter Clinic and online.
What is CBTi?
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, or ‘CBTi’ for short, is a sleep and Insomnia technique that trains people to use techniques that address the mental (or cognitive) factors that are associated with insomnia.
This is different from cognitive behavioural therapy for depression or anxiety.

What others have said
I began the CBTI program feeling a bit reluctant and sceptical. Like lots of insomniacs, I felt I’d tried everything – and feared this would be yet another failed attempt. It was a delight to discover that Steph’s methods actually work – and are all backed up by rigorous scientific research. After 20 years of surviving on a just a couple of hours, I’m now getting a full night’s sleep. And, for a chronic insomniac, that’s truly transformative! Steph’s experience and enthusiasm, coupled with her effective methods, make for a powerful, drug-free solution to insomnia.
Just to say a very big thank you for all your kindness, time and tips during the last few weeks, I really appreciated all your help and suggestions and I feel sure that it has and will continue to aid me in my sleep schedule.
