The treatment methodology that underpins Sleepstation (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia or CBTi) is supported by over 30 years of research.
The Sleepstation treatment was co-designed by one of the UK’s leading sleep doctors – Dr Kirstie Anderson. As one of the few consultant neurologists to specialise in sleep, she works within one of the country’s largest sleep clinics where people with every type of sleep disturbance are seen and successfully treated, including those with severe insomnia. She has published papers on a range of sleep disorders and delivers lectures on every aspect of sleep.
