I can’t recommend online CBT enough. Positive and thorough. I bought into it despite initial reservations and am thankful I did. Probably the most powerful thing I have every been part of. Literally life-changing.

How online CBT can improve your sleep

History Icon

Challenge the way you think

Your CBT therapist will work with you to ‘formulate’ the vicious cycle you are experiencing when it comes to sleep. You'll map out how your thoughts, feelings and behaviours are all connected then work together on a plan for changing your beliefs around sleep.

Break the cycle

You and the therapist will work together on breaking the cycle.This could involve doing experiments at home in between sessions to test out the beliefs you have towards sleep by doing something differently. These experiments really help you challenge your beliefs.

Sleep better

Throughout your treatment, you'll continue to practice behavioural experiments, which you'll then talk through your experiences with your therapist the next week. Seeing changes in your beliefs will help build your confidence and develop new sleeping habits that last.

4 reasons to try CBT

(From people who've done it)

I noticed progress quickly
I was initially unsure about online therapy and how it would work, but the rapport with my online therapist was soon built. I can honestly say that from the work I undertook at the beginning of my sessions, my progress, even over a short number of weeks, was really noticeable.
Amelia, Surrey

CBT was new to me
CBT was a totally new experience for me, and I had no idea of what to expect. It turned out to be helpful in understanding exactly the nature of my problem, and I was led to realise how best to address it.
Linda, Cambridgeshire

Convenient and flexible
It is easy to do because you can just use a computer from home. Appointments are flexible, even 11pm was ok.
Kieran, Isle of Wight

Typing rather than talking
I found it better than a face to face session as I had time to formulate answers. And don’t worry about spelling mistakes they are not an issue.

Talk through typing

Wait, what? Therapy through typing?!
Online CBT is exactly the same as face-to-face CBT, other than that the conversation is typed on your computer. You’re still in a 1:1 conversation with a fully qualified therapist, usually for 60 minutes. The only difference is that you type your responses. It’s exactly like chatting via a messenger service with friends. You don't need to be brilliant at spelling or worry about using the correct grammar.

You might find online CBT helpful if you:

  • enjoy chatting to friends and family on social media or messaging services
  • like the idea of having a therapist’s undivided attention, without the pressure of being in the same room
  • need sessions at evenings or weekends
  • would like to be able to go back and review the advice you received between sessions and after the treatment has ended

Don’t be put off if you:

  • are not a fast typer
  • have never done anything like this before

My therapist explained everything so well. Being able to read everything back and message between sessions was also so helpful.
