CBTi is a proven effective and long-lasting solution to insomnia.

There is a large body of evidence which has been based on over the randomised controlled trials of over 100 cases of  (RCTs), It proved that the use of CBTi on these patient proved to be an effective and long-lasting treatment for 50%–70% of patients. I know that the use of CBT will take longer than the use of drugs to produce improvements in sleep. In other words, those improvements are much more sustainable over time. Where there has been the use of CBTi in an treatment program it has been able to demonstrate an improvement in most outcomes in comparison with inactive controls.

Is it effective and when is best to use this therapy?

The use and efficacy of cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia delivered in person has been robustly researched, while supporting a mixture of individuals across all age ranges. Therefore, CBTi is found to be very effective also for more complex insomnia with comorbid medical and psychiatric conditions where medication has been required to be taken for sleep.
